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
Samsung Galaxy S II international
Sony Xperia Z
Galaxy Note II international
HTC Droid DNA

Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...
Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
In our recent Discuss article, we asked you readers on which OEM you would like to help. While the answers we received were varied, a lot of these responses and top comments stood out for helping one OEM: Sony. Some excerpts from our discussion are as below: And many more follow suit. Needless to say, many believe that Sony Mobile as a company is great and is worth saving. And all of these would be happy to hear that Sony will...
