    Thread Black version of stock boot animation?

    Hello there! Is there a black version of the stock boot animation? It is quite blinding for me, especially in darkened rooms. A black version would be better for the eyes and it'll fit nicely with this: https://forum.xda-developers.com/mi-a1/themes/mod-custom-boot-logo-elegant-t3800498 There...

    Post Is it still a good idea to update Android to the newest version?

    When Nougat was released. some users reported shutdowns before 0% charge was indicated and for Oreo, BLODs. Note that in both cases, the hardware issues appeared post-update. It may be possible that the software triggered hardware problems. Additionally, when I meant that fixes required...

    Thread Is it still a good idea to update Android to the newest version?

    I originally bought the Nexus 6P because of the fast updates and the greater degree of customization than many other device lines. However, the Nougat and now the Oreo updates are beset by hardware issues that occur after installation. Even when there are fixes, these usually end up compromising...

    Post What do We Need?

    Porting Plasma Mobile You don't really need to port Ubuntu Touch per se to get a Plasma Mobile port working. Just getting an Ubuntu 16.04 rootfs working should suffice for a base to build on. Additionally, porting Halium components should be enough to get the ball rolling. I was working on a...

    Plasma Mobile and Ubuntu Touch Plasma Mobile is no longer based on Ubuntu Touch proper. It uses a customized Ubuntu container, but it's not the one from UT. It's (as if time of posting) using an AOSP/LineageOS core as a base. However, it doesn't use ART or Dalvik; this is what makes it a...
