Want to Learn? Choose Your Tutorial

Here at XDA we promote information sharing and development. Another thing we encourage is learning how to develop. With currently running XDA TV segments for building your own Android app and awesome tips for using your Android device, we’ve been working at accomplishing this However, many still learn best through written tutorials. There are tutorials out there to help users with practically everything from theming and scripting, all the way to ROM development and compiling. One big issue, though, is finding those tutorials.

XDA Senior Member F3niX has done a lot of work in that regard by posting more than a dozen tutorial links in a single thread. This can be incredibly helpful as a quick reference for users looking to learn something new. It’s much like the table of contents of a book, except with web links.

The tutorials listed range from pretty basic to advanced-intermediate topics. They include:

MIUI v4
Sense UI
Making a Flashable Zip
Making a CWM Flashable Zip
Complete Android ROM development and essential tutorials
Re-Odexing a ROM
Porting AOSP ICS ROMs
Compiling CM9 on Mac-OSX Lion
MIUI (Source GB)
Create your own De-Bloat Tool
Porting LewaOS,JoyOS for Noobs
[*]Making your Own Custom ROM
Basic Modding and Theming:
Remap Hardware Button to ICS Recent Apps
Create GB Dictionary for your Language
ICS Recent Apps Button/Softkeys to Status Bar
Re-Odexing a ROM

While the hardest stuff may not be presented, this is an outstanding list for beginners looking to get started, or even intermediate users looking to expand their knowledge. Of course, all credit goes to the original writers of the guides. It should also be noted that while this is posted in the Samsung Galaxy R forums, most of the links take you to universal tutorials.

For the list and discussion, head to the original thread.

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
