Major Update to AROMA Installer and File Manager

Major Update to AROMA Installer and File Manager

It’s been some time since we last heard about an update to AROMA. Sure, we publish stories of modifications and tweaks that utilize the AROMA Installer to afford end users choice in customizing exactly what they are installing. However, XDA Recognized Developer amarullz has now given his AROMA Installer a rather hefty update. For those who haven’t yet heard of AROMA, we recommend checking out some of our earlier stories on the installer.

So what do developers have to gain by upgrading to the latest version of AROMA Installer? Increased device compatibility, for starters. Amarullz has stated that his main focus with this release is to build on the installer’s already impressive compatibility, as well as to add stability and performance. However it appears as though devices must support ARM Neon to use the newest version.

AROMA File Manager has been updated as well. The new version brings forth the ability to take screen shots, a new input driver, and a host of other changes. And with an update time of 8 months and a change log lengthy enough to match, we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.

Whether you’re a developer looking to package your goods in a shiny AROMA package or you simply want a nifty file manager accessible from recovery, you can head over to the AROMA Installer and AROMA File Manager threads to find out more.
