Hey community :)

someone recently asked me per email how i do ROM Development.
i prefer to use Android Studio, but it doesnt fully support all, as some internal and hidden api's are just not visible.

This video shows you, how to expose these features and make use of them while coding :)

for example, if you implement new Methods and Constants etc, android studio wont pick them up and display them by default.
with doing this little trick, it does.

i think its really usefull, but decide yourself :D

oh, before i forget, sorry for the bad video, im just bad at recording :p
