Xposed Framework Gets Dedicated Forum and DevDB Support

It is absolutely no secret that XDA Senior Recognized Developer rovo89's Xposed Framework has vastly shaped how we approach device modification. Rather than having to decompile applications, modify bits and pieces, recompile, and push the modded files back to our devices, we can now replace any method in any class at runtime using Xposed and a purpose-built module.

Managing Multiple Projects on DevDB Just Got Easier

[April Fools! Sort of…] Introducing XDA:BOOT

Every year at around this time, we here at XDA-Developers like to take a step back and figure out what we can do to make our little home on the web an even better place. About four years ago, we accomplished this by introducing the world to XDA Core. And then two years later, this meant...

Samsung to Unveil Galaxy S 5 on Monday at Unpacked in Barcelona, Forums Created

It's so close, you can almost smell it. "TheNextGALAXY" is set to be announced on Monday at Samsung's Unpacked 5 event in Barcelona. And while the "next Galaxy" could come as an entirely new Galaxy-branded line, we think that it's fairly safe to assume that this is for the Samsung Galaxy S 5.

Announcing Better Support for Devices from India on XDA

XDA is a huge global community. That makes managing the site a challenge, as everything from monitoring the ads to moderating the forums becomes exponentially more difficult when dealing with different countries, cultures, and belief systems. What many people don't know is that the second largest source of traffic on XDA after the USA is actually...

XDA-Developers and Piracy

It should come as absolutely no surprise that we at XDA-Developers take piracy very seriously. Not only does pirated content cause our site to face potential legal action, but the developers who create the applications we enjoy deserve to be rewarded for their efforts. It is for this reason that we take a zero-tolerance policy...
