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 India. And until now, we’ve admittedly done a poor job of supporting these users. We’ve never had a defined process for adding India-only devices, and when we do add them, we’ve often relegated them to our legacy/low activity template. Often non-supported device discussion gets spread throughout the general forums, which is a problem for forum organization. But more and more, Indian users are becoming valuable members of the community—contributing knowledge, know-how, and excellent development work.

Starting today, we’re going to do better. We will be adding several additional Indian devices (the list is below), and will do a better job of monitoring upcoming device release. We’ve also implemented a back-end tagging system for forums that lets us “label” a forum as popular in India (or any geo for that matter).

Users who only want to see these devices can visit a new filtered version of the XDA homepage at http://forum.xda-developers.com/India. Or to make it even easier, try visiting http://xda.in.

All of these new forums will be treated like any others on XDA. The same forum rules still apply. And as always, we ask users to be helpful, civil, and to always search before posting. We also ask that English continue to be the only language used on XDA.

Should there be any new forum requests, suggestions, or other bits of feedback, please post them in the XDA India Feedback thread.

Making Your Own Xposed Modules Is Easier Than You Think

Close to the heart of XDA is the Xposed Framework by Rovo89. Most of us will have used it but you may feel that the module repository is missing something.

ZenFone 2 Lolliflash and ZenPower Giveaway!

We recently did an in-depth review of the Asus Zenfone 2 but one of the things people may not be aware of is that ASUS has actually created a line of accessories to compliment the ZenFone, or any other Android device.
