Many members of the XDA community come to learn and begin in the exciting world of software development. Once you’ve gone through the development process and written your software, you need to ensure that maintenance does not cause additional problems and the results are always completely reproducible. This is where a build automation system comes in to play. Jenkins is one such software which allows you to keep a hands-off approach to building and releasing your software.
In this episode of XDA Developer TV, AdamOutler talks about Jenkins. Jenkins is a build automation software which runs on Linux and Mac, as well as Windows with some effort. Jenkins can be triggered by Git or Subversion commit hoo. . . READ ON »

The Nokia X is the first Android-powered device family from the legendary Finnish manufacturer. It’s become quite the commercial success due to being a relatively cheap device with pretty decent hardware specification. And after it was rooted and received ports of TWRP and ClockworkMod recoveries, it was only a matter of time before custom ROMs would show up.
XDA Senior Member dhacker29, who ported AOSP to Moto G, now brought a working Code Aurora-based build of AOSP Jellybean 4.1.2 to the Nokia X. The list of working features is quite long, including network connectivity, camera, FM radio, and even multi SIM support. The build is described as stable and is a good alternative to heavily modif. . . READ ON »

Development doesn’t always quite feel like development without the custom ROMs. They’re such a pivotal part of our mobile experience that a proper Android experience would be hard to come by without flashing a few first. So if you just happen to be contemplating building your own, XDA-University is a great place to start your journey at.
The How to build an Android ROM guide over at XDA University is a great introductory overview to help you get started. While it doesn’t actually go into the specifics of how to actually create each component that goes into a custom ROM, it provides beginners with a comprehensive yet digestible breakdown of the essential components.

Even though the HTC Sensation XL has been available since May 2011, there is still a dedicated community trying to keep the phone as up-to-date as possible. XDA Senior Member S.a.M.e.R_d released a ROM that allows XL users to enjoy the full benefits of Sense 4.1.
Currently, the ROM is on its seventh build, and the change log shows that there has been some rapid development since it first went live in December of last year. Common problems with early ROMs such as front and back facing camera issues seem to be fixed in the latest build, as well as apps that you will only find in an HTC Sense device.
S.a.M.e.R_d has also created a host of modifications that are ready to be installed on builds 6 and 7 of the ROM. Batter. . . READ ON »

The Acer E350, otherwise known as the Liquid Gallant, is one of those devices that sits squarely in the middle of the road. While more than capable of running Android 4.0.3, its specs aren’t really anything to write home about. This coupled with the fact that Acer’s devices aren’t particularly renowned for their developer support means that the E350 wasn’t given it’s own dedicated forum. That however has not stopped those with the device from providing it with that all important trio of root, recovery, and ROM that no device should be left without.

Despite being somewhat abandoned by Motorola as far as official updates are concerned, the Motorola Defy & Defy+ are refusing to accept that the latest versions of Android are out of the question. Having recently received an unofficial version of CM10 based on Android 4.1.2 thanks to XDA Recognized Developer Quarx, these devices continue to defiantly (see what I did there?) push the limits of what they are capable of.
As you might expect, this build is still in quite an early stage. There might be bugs, and it may not be suitable for use as a daily driver quite yet. That said, the general feedback within the development thread seems to be very good, without any deal breaking issues being reported so far. The bui. . . READ ON »
