XDA Development Database Enters Stage Two Rollout
Earlier this month, we announced the first stage of our rollout of XDA DevDB to a handful of forums. For those unfamiliar, DevDB helps developers on XDA better organize their ROMs, kernels, and other development works, while adding useful functions like a bug reporter, feature requestor, user reviews, download section with torrent functionality, and more. It’s heavily integrated into the forums, so that if you want to use XDA as usual, you can do so.
In the second stage of our roll out, we’re adding DevDB to a handful of new forums and are letting all Recognized Developers on XDA use the system (in the future, all XDA members will be able to post new works to DevDB). Additionally, we’ve fixed bugs and have added new pieces of functionality to DevDB. We see DevDB as a work-in-progress, and will be improving it over time.
Below is a list of forums that have DevDB enabled.
Samsung Galaxy S 4 (international, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T)
Samsung Galaxy SIII (international, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T)
HTC One (international, Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T)
Sony Xperia Tablet Z

But it'll be a long time...

Editor’s note: This week's feature has been written by forum member RowHanSolo and takes a look at the exciting prospect of launching satellites fitted with little more than an Android phone as an onboard computer. From a university to NASA, multiple projects like this have launched! Technology is an ever-growing industry, regardless of which corner you look at. However, each area of technology has its limitations on what it can do and how far it can expand. For satellite technology,...
