Xubuntu 13.10

Ubuntu 13.10 with the Xfce Desktop Enviroment

Have you been looking for an Ubuntu based distribution with a lightweight desktop environment? Well if you have continue to read this article about my opinion of Xubuntu. Xubuntu is based on Ubuntu and they have two releases Xubuntu 13.10 and Xubuntu 12.04 (LTS) Long Term Support.  Xubuntu is one of the official derivatives of Ubuntu official supported. For those that hated the look and feel of Ubuntu but like Ubuntu give this a shot it is on the inside, well Ubuntu... Xubuntu removed Unity and added the Xfce desktop environment on top. Along with some of their other packages. The Xfce is where they added the X to (X)ubuntu! With the Xfce desktop environment on Xubnuntu you have many customizable features as you can tell from the screenshot I provide from above.  More detailed info about Xubuntu and other distributions coming soon!

AOKP KitKat Android 4.4.2 for HTC One XL

[ROM][Evita][EON's]AOKP::Unofficial[KitKat v 4.4.2]

version 0.40 beta

Hello have you been looking for an AOKP rom for the HTC One XL? Will if so you've come to the right spot. I am Techinstein on XDA-Developers and compiled my first rom ever. I just happened to choose AOKP. I chose AOKP because will I didn't see 4.4.2 for the Evita and saw AOKP just officially released the rom for 5 devices. So I added HTC One XL to the the unofficial AOKP rom list running as smooth as butter, as AOKP can be right now.  I've even added Viper4Android FX audio, which is an amazing replacement of DSP Manager and  this app is created by XDA-Developers own zhuhang and founded by ViPER520. Along with version 0.40 beta I included Xposed Installer with XHaloOpenWindow preloaded onto the rom, these are made by XDA's rovo89. XHaloFloatingWindow is a Halo like replacement.You just have to install the Xposed framework and activate the module, you might even need to reboot. But before you reboot open up the Viper4Android audio and follow the instructions it provides you and install the audio driver you wish out of; Super High Quality, High Audio Quality, and (will I don't quite remember the last one but I don't recommend that one anyway.) But once you install this reboot and enjoy. Note, that ART does not work at the moment. ART is a cache runtime that replaces Dalvik cache and when fixed in a future update can be enabled by going to developer options and select the runtime setting then choose ART. Everything else about this rom is %100 stable. AOKP just added Immersive mode so click the power button and on reboot menu choose Immersive mode. This hides status bar interactively. Just a small glitch with Google Hangouts app and nothing else. Another cool feature that works great is non-intrusive calling. Which provides a calling logo at the bottom of your screen with contact logo and accept decline. To check the status of AOKP in general please visit the mGerrit app included. Please read the thread on XDA to find out more to download the rom. Report bugs on the forum of this site from now on please.

AOKP KitKat v 4.2.2 for Evita [ROM]

[ROM][Evita][Beta v0.10]Unoffcial AOKP -- EON's [KitKat v 4.4.2]

v 0.20 beta releasing tomorrow


Android Open Kang Project

Yesterday I compiled my first Android rom for the HTC One XL, this rom is AOKP Android 4.4.2. I decided to try and start compiling rom's with a BANG! I noticed that AOKP started Android 4.4.2 roms and only had 5 or so official devices so I thought I would make the first one for evita. I assume AOKP rebuilt their ROM from scratch since their features arn't all their at the moment. Probably soon to come though. So for my first rom I thought more mods? No only good mods, so I added Viper4Android audio which I am in the process of getting official permission to use in the rom. In my opinion V4A is way better then DSP manager. Other than that I added Xposed Installer with permission from XDA-Developer's member rovo89Along with Xposed I added XHaloFloatingWindow which is also bye rovo89 so you can get the effect of halo. Please feel free to visit the thread and try my first rom and the first AOKP 4.4.2 rom for evita. If your a member of XDA please leave your feedback and post bugs their or on this sites forum I will have a section for.

SlimKat ROM

Nuuu Slimroms has been out since Android 4.3 and was one of the first to release for Android 4.4 kitkat thus changing Slimroms to SlimKat.  Slimroms releases weekly beta for 4.4 current Slim rom is weekly 1.9 beta.  According to the Slimroms site we their latest weekly 1.9 is that start of their new theming engine.  They brought back the real dark Slim to 4.4 which btw  is now Android 4.4.2 for the latest Slim weeklys.  My favorite part of SlimKat is that they were one of the first releases of kitkat for Grouper the Nexus 7 and had weeklys.  On the first release they already had interface options and slimIRC. With SlimKat weekly 1.9 beta Android 4.4.2, features range from interface settings with clock and battery options.  Navigation which allows you to change navigation  bars dpi.  SlimKat also features Slim OTA and SlimSizer  which allows you to receive over the air updates and remove any built in APP.  But BE careful with what you remove.
