I think that a lot of xda members doesn't know exactly how naming a thread.
You will find a thread in your specific device forum and in sub-forums.

So that's why I wrote this guide for helping all members.
  • [POST 1] - GENERAL Sections
  • [POST 2] - Q&A, Help & Troubleshooting Sections
  • [POST 3] - DEVELOPMENT Sections
  • [POST 4] - THEMES & APPS Sections


I HOPE THIS'LL HELP A LOT AND MAKE XDA MORE ORGANIZED
