Today we have some news to share: over the coming weeks, we will be launching a ground-up forum redesign, which we’re calling XDA 2020. We’ve outgrown vBulletin (which was never designed to handle a community our size) and are moving to XenForo, a more modern platform that powers some of the...
Pinned threads like the one we are posting on should be updated with latest info as it's confusing for newcomers.
Everyone knows what it's like to comb through the forums on a new device to find ROMs, kernels, apps and all the other customizations that come out of the community.
It's a mixed bag! It's satisfying when you do find something that really appeals to you, but it's also frustrating because a forum just simply isn't the best platform to show off a lot of the modifications we use. A lot of great content, be it wallpapers, icon packs, themes or even homescreens get lost in a sea of text lists, acronyms and giant threads
So we've come up with a way we think will help better promote, organize and support independent development in our community.
It's called XDA Feed!
Each device is supported by the community! You can contribute links to your favorite ROM, Kernel, Wallpaper, Thread, Homescreen, Icon Pack, Video or Article and help support your device with content.
Browse, view, download and share the best content on XDA for your device!
Custom built in Download Manager supports resuming cancelled/failed downloads
Filter out content you're not interested in
Star content you're interested in to look at later
Granular notification control: opt out entirely, batch notifications to certain time intervals and specify which content you want to see updates from
Suggest content for your (and any!) device
Leaderboard that shows top contributors!
Did you know Feed content comes from the community? Find the 'Suggest to Feed' links in the app or visit https://feed.xda-developers.com and suggest a link to see that item show up in Feed!

Q: Why does this app exist?
We all know there is a ton of cool stuff you can do to your phone, but navigating the XDA forums to find it all can be a bit daunting. This app is a curated "feed" of all that stuff you wish you knew about, so you don't miss anything.
Q: Wait a sec...why are there multiple versions of Feed?
This is deprecated and per-device builds will be removed soon. Make sure to grab the all devices version for the latest & quickest updates.
Q: Why not just integrate this into XDA Labs?
We wanted to separate the functionality of Feed because we have some very cool stuff planned for it. You'll see!
Download History only shows items actually downloaded by Feed itself. Due to the Play Store TOS, this means Apps and Icon Packs are linked to and as such won't show up in Download history. We're not opposed to still including those downloads in the history, they just aren't there at the moment.
0.28.5 is out on Play and Labs. Download links in OP. Thanks to everyone who's helped test beta builds on Labs.
We're still working on improving the user submission tools so you'll see content you've submitted and voted on approved and in the app in the near future! Thanks for everyone's patience as we figure out how to best manage everything. <3
