I'm a tinkerer. I work with a lot of electronic platforms but never really took a look at the phone and it's OS. Being almost completely unfamiliar with Linux and having some old phones sitting in a drawer; I figured why not let's do this. This forum is so at the center of everything phone, with all google roads leading to this path. I also like the people here and it's a pleasure to say Hello World to you all. I want to give a shout out to anyone who has contributed to the site. I'm used posts that worked and did not work all lead to a fantastic learning experience. Learning Odin was a game changer. Exploring TWRP just amazing. Finally seeing how the partitions are laid out on a phone. How to make them. Loading in a ROM. There is so much to explore. Thanks for having me, I'll try to help out any way I can.
I am new as i created my first account in xda forum but i searched google several time for custom roms and it appeared with xda. So from a recent past i have known xda as a developer's platform.
Thanks for your work guys.
Hello, I am an ubuntu and manjaro linux user. I tinker with pi's and odroids for video security and arduinos for keypad and IR door locks. I've read the forums before for help with an ASUS transformer prime tablet and now for trying to recover an Nvidia shield pro.. needing more help, so joined to post. Thanks.
Hey i am new to XDA and i have finished my degree back in 2k19 and since then i have been working in a fintech domain but i really want to get going with my development so here i am trying to get some work and earn from it with my development skills. thank you!
Hi, I'm new on XDA. I found it when I looked for problem solutions for my Android phone. I'm actually C++ developer, but without experience with Android, except as user.
Now I try to learn more and I have seen that XDA is a good place to talk with experienced people. Thanks already in advance for all the support you give to newcomers like me.
I was told this is the place to be and so here I am. I’m new to Linux which led to unlocking boot loader and changing OS on a pixel 3a xl. I want to do more and experience more with software on computers and phones.
I am tired of companies getting between me and my technology. Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, and Amazon can suck a duck. My goal is to remove these big tech viruses from my electronics. My data belongs to me, and nobody else.
I've been using this site for a few years for my android issues. I just got ts10 android headunit and I'm hoping to find a way to enable usb audio. I'm looking forward to learning custom roms and rooting!
Good day to all you gals and guys.
I've used XDA forums in the past to try to answer various types of computer problems that I've had, and I'm sure that the content on here has helped me but I can't remember any specific occasions .... I'm an old git now
My career was in IT, and although I've forgotten most of what I knew, this background helps me understand (eventually .... sometimes) what you modern techies out there knew from birth.
So hopefully I'll get some help on here with my queries, and I look forward to a time when I may be able to contribute to an answer!
Please be gentle with me
As you can see, I'm new here
Recently I got OnePlus 9 Pro, and have some battery drain problem, so I'll be hangin around OnePlus subforums, looking for solutions, suggestions...
Except that, camera is very important to me, so I'll be in topics like that.
Well hi all, I'm 'new', but not really that new, since I've been searching through XDA topics on many occasions for quite a few years now. Not sure why it took me so long to actually make an account, but here I am.
So about me - half geek, half creative, F/LOSS enthusiast for over 20 years, full time Linux user since 2006, interested in way to many subjects to ever become a specialist in any of them within at least a dozen of life spans. Hence I don't think I'll ever be able to call myself a developer, but hey, we'll see ;-)
More than anything, XDA is a community, and we're all here for different reasons.
Some are here to mod their phone--some joined just to ask a question. Or perhaps, like many, you joined so long ago, you have no idea why you're here (which is totally fine! we've been around for almost a decade). And we're in the process of making XDA more useful to everyone here now that we've moved to much better forum software.
But we'd love to know your XDA story: why are you here, and who are you? What's your day job, what phones do you have, where do you live, what do you like to do for fun? We'd love to get to know you!
Also, be sure to spend some time filling out your profile:
Hello everyone, i'm back here after a long, long time
I used to read alot here when i was 10 - 15 but I think i switched to iOs during 2010s and i never really had my phone in the center of my occupations so i bought some macbook & iphone and i started to learn code. (mostly js)
I would be really happy to help users here, if i can, and discuss about my new device. 2020s seems to be redditable as **** tbh, the xda lost kid became some kind of creative dev who's going back to the r00t
Thank you for everything I have read here over the last years!
My story? I'm not paying over $150 for a phone anymore. I am sick and tired of companies bricking phones and taking my cash when they're perfectly usable and up to spec. I registered a few minutes ago as I find this forum to be great for mainly the old(er) Samsung devices I buy. You flash a custom ROM on one of those old babies and you have yourself a new phone. My next plan to is to hunt down a Note 7, stick a safer S7 edge battery in it (as it's compatible) and have fun.
