      General Information

      Hi all! So basically, I just wanted to have a single thread with links to my personal collection of Android stuff, which includes both, stuff I've created and stuff other developers have created (that I use). The only reason behind creating this thread is to make it easier for others to find some things which they might also use with their OnePlus 5s. Obviously, some of the stuff here was developed with the OnePlus 5 in mind, so it might/might not work out-of-the-box with other devices. Therefore, I'll also try and mention if something here can be used universally across different devices or just the OnePlus 5. If you see something here that inspires you, go ahead and mod it, just let me know and give me some credit somewhere if it belongs to me or credit the original creator(s) of the mod, if it doesn't belongs to me. Let's get right to it then!
