    Thread PC Hardware Coverage for XDA in 2020

    Hello everyone! I didn't know where to really put this and the forums are still one of the places I feel most comfortable on the web. In 2019 we did a far better job of covering more new PC hardware components than the previous year. Some of our reviews took longer than expected, but I stand...

    Post What are the lowest adequate system requirements for building Android?

    A T7700 is probably going to take a very long time. Even building a kernel on a Q9500 was over an hour in 2013. Get the RAM if it's very cheap or free, but I'd honestly save the money and put away to buy a newer laptop. In the long term you'll get a far better result. You may honestly be...

    Post Building My Gaming PC

    You may want to throw that in PCPartPicker and send a link to that build list. You may also find better pricing since you posted it. A few follow-up Qs: 1) What OS (or OSes?) 2) What games in particular are you looking at playing? 3) Do you have a budget in mind? There's also room to make...

    Thread Behind the Scenes Update: September 2018

    Hey everyone! I've been silent for a while for personal reasons. But we're at a point where things are about to heat up... literally! Many things have changed since my last update, so I'll give a rundown of those changes here. This should also help readers know where we're headed in the next 3...

    Post Honor Re-Opens bootloader Unlocking on a Limited Trial for XDA

    I'm glad to see a little wiggle room on this. But as Huawei arguably has one of the top devices on market (or so I keep hearing about the P20 Pro) it also starts to make sense. Here's hoping a good balance can be found.
