Github Tutorial App Shows You How to Use… Github

Posted by wicked December - 19 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Github Tutorial

Github can get pretty complicated and using it can become quite daunting, especially for a rookie who’s just getting started. Unfortunately (or fortunately), there aren’t too many ways around it in the community-driven open-source development world, particularly if you want to compile a custom recovery, or a ROM or something else from source. So to help you out with all the ins and outs of Github, XDA Recognized Contributor and Themer Vivek_Neel created a Github Tutorial app.

Github Tutorial, unlike the many other helpful tutorials we feature here on the Portal, does not come in the form of a written forum post. Rather, it’s an Android application designed to guide and teach people just beginning their journey. In addition to the basics, Github Tutorial also covers the intermediate and advanced aspects of Github for those who know a bit more about the service. And to top it off, Vivek_Neel has added a test at the end quizzing you about what you’ve learned.

If you’re interested in learning more about Github, this app is a good place to start. So, to find out more, head over to the Github Tutorial application thread.

YU Yureka: Indian Handset with CyanogenMod

Posted by wicked December - 19 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

yu_yureka

The soap opera involving Cyanogen Inc., OnePlus, and Micromax is one of the most talked about topics in the last few weeks. To that end, an in-depth analysis was put together by our Developer Admin pulser_g2 just yesterday. Micromax’s Yu brand announced their first smartphone: the Yureka. It’s a big, relatively powerful, and budget-friendly handset poised to take the Indian market by storm.

In reality, the Yureka is nothing more than the Micromax CoolPad F2 with Yu’s logo, a Qualcomm Snapdragon instead of a MediaTek SoC, and CyanogenMod as its operating system. It will ship with KitKat, with Lollipop on the way as soon as CM’s engineers make the project more mature to be included as an OS. Let’s take a look what the Yureka has to offer:

  • 5.5-inch 720p display
  • 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon 615 64-bit
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 16GB of internal storage, microSD slot up to 32GB
  • 13 megapixel Sony Exmor sensor
  • 2,500mAh battery
  • CyanogenMod 11S

The price for the handset is set at Rs. 8,999 which is roughly $142 USD. This low price should attract many potential buyers. As expected, Cyanogen Inc. is responsible for updates, so users of the Yureka should feel safe about getting upcoming Android updates for at least 24 months.

Cyanogen is including some extra stuff in its ROM: Users will be able to make use of a nice set of themes and support for Nextbit Baton, a software sync platform that allows backing up apps and app settings, and even seamlessly transfer the state of an app from one device to another.

The Yureka will be available exclusively on Amazon.in starting December 19th. While the official launch date remains unknown, everything should become clear in a few days. Meanwhile, you can share your thoughts about this device in the newly opened forum for YU Yureka.

Chainfire Turns Your Bootanimation into a Logging Center

Posted by wicked December - 19 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

screenshot-nexus9-live-1

Having a nice boot animation certainly adds a little bit of aesthetic polish to your ROM. But other than its purely aesthetic value, boot animations don’t really provide any useful information. When your device is boot looping or one of your services is constantly crashing, ADB is still the most reliable option to get information. There are plenty applications able to get logs straight from device, but not many can access logs while booting.

XDA Senior Recognized Developer and Senior Moderator Chainfire, known from various projects such as SuperSU and CF-Root, decided to “tweak” the boot animation by adding logcat and dmesg logging. LiveBoot is a root-only application that can replace standard your boot animation with logs, or it can be used as a semi-transparent background. The user can decide which logs are displayed, so this application can be very handy when your device fails to boot.

LiveBoot should work with most Android 4.3+ devices. There might be some problems with some specific device firmwares, but this shouldn’t be too common. LiveBoot requires the newest SuperSU 2.40 to work properly, so update now if you haven’t already.

More information about the project and download files can be found in the LiveBoot application thread. Head over there if you want to change your bootanimation into a complex logging center.

We talk a lot about battery topics here at XDA TV. We talk about everything from Power Banks to USB Desktop Chargers to Battery Saving Apps. We talk about this stuff because both we and our viewers are not “normal” users. We don’t use our devices to check Facebook on our breaks and find the nearest skinny jeans store. No, we use it for much more–and all that screen on time can really eat up your battery.

XDA Senior Member Flyview offers up app that lets you control your Bluetooth, Data and WiFi Radios saving your battery. In this video XDA TV Producer TK reviews Leandroid.  TK shows off the application, its uses, functionality and talks about his thoughts of the application. Check out this app review.

Android 5.1 Possibly Coming February 2015

Posted by wicked December - 18 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Google-Android-5.0-Lollipop-5-630x419

Google released Android 5.0 just over a month ago, and since then Lollipop has been trying to establish its position in the global smartphone market. Despite its many new features and overall greatness, Android 5.0 has many issues that still need to be addressed. According to our colleagues at AndroidPIT and their two internal sources, Google is working on Android 5.1, which should really come as no surprise because software progress is inevitable. We already know that Google is always looking ahead, but the interesting part is that if rumors are to be believed, we’ll see 5.1 as soon as the end of February.

This information, although plausible, could strike one as a bit odd. After all, usually Google releases one or two versions of its OS per year. But with the potential release of 5.1 right around the corner, it’s unclear as to why Google would want to roll out a new update so soon.

If AndroidPIT’s sources are to be believed, the update will allegedly bring following improvements:

  • Silent mode added after missing on Android 5.0
  • General improvements in system stability
  • Improved RAM management
  • Fixes for sudden app closures
  • Improved battery management
  • Excessive consumption of network devices when used Wi-Fi fixed
  • Issues with wireless connections fixed
  • Problems with Okay Google function solved
  • Notifications problems solved
  • Some sound problems experience by certain devices fixed
  • Other improvements and changes

The to-do list is rather long, and Google will definitely address some of these problems. AndroidPIT claims that they got this news from sources close to Google and Android 5.1 will soon become a reality. We can only wait to see whether these revelations are real or not.

XDA is not only a great source for custom ROMs, kernels, and various modifications for numerous devices–it’s also a great place to find tutorials and other materials that help you to understand the Android ecosystem better. These resources then help you on your quest of eventually becoming a developer. Every developer started off not knowing how to code, but learning and ambition can work wonders.

Creating your first project can take days or weeks if you are learning just by yourself. You can reduce this time significantly by following the video tutorial by XDA Senior Member sylsau. By following this guide you will become… a time traveler and change your currently used dialer to classic rotary style seen back in the old days of last century.

The project has been built on Eclipse, so if you’re planning to follow the guide, you’ll need to download the IDE yourself since Google dropped Eclipse and ADT as the main Android IDE. You can watch the video by visiting the How to create an Old School Rotary Dialer forum thread.

Sometimes you learn one way to do something, and that’s the way you do it forever. You never learn another way because you think that’s just the way it is. However, there are many ways to charge your phone. You can struggle with the included charger, trying to find a outlet close enough to a table to rest your device. If you have many devices, they can be strewn around your house. Thankfully, there are other options out there.

In this episode of XDA TV, Producer Jordan reviews and discusses various USB Desktop Charger options. He reviews the RAVPower 50W/10A 6-Port Charging Station, the Anker 60W 6-Port Desktop USB Charger with PowerIQ, the Anker 40W 5-Port Desktop USB Charger with PowerIQ, the Bolse 25W (5V/5A) 4-Port USB charger With SmartIC and the Bolse 60W/12-Amp 7-Port Charging Station With SmartIC.

Google Adds New Features to Drive, Sheets, Slides and Docs

Posted by wicked December - 17 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

google-apps

In the last few months, Google has been working very hard to adapt all its apps to the new Material Design UI paradigm. Overhauling the UI was a big deal, but one of the main goals in app development is adding new features. Everyone loves features, so Google stepped up and delivered quite a few to several of its first party Android apps.

Google has pushed out updates of the following applications: Docs, Sheets, Drive, and Slides. The first thing you’ll notice are full hamburger menu icons. In addition, Docs now allows users to specify line spacing in the paragraph section, where users select one of the predefined values. Unfortunately, they can’t be edited manually. Sheets also received some tweaks, seen in new scroll bars that should help you to find your location in the document.

Slides users can now also insert and manipulate lines, shapes, and text boxes. You can move those objects freely and do something like this:

Google-Slides-Lollipop-Android

The above updates aren’t all–Google has good news for LibreOffice and OpenOffice users. Drive has gained the ability to import Open Document Format into the respective apps. You can even search for content by saying “OK Google, search for [something] on Drive”. Your results will then be available and opened through the Drive app.

These applications are now gradually making their way to end user devices via the Play Store. However, those who want to get in on the updates a bit early can head over to the via link below for the all important APK download.
