OmniROM looking to put out Android 5.0-friendly version soon

We’ve talked about OmniROM a number of times already here at Android Community. This was a project started a few years back in the wake of the CyanogenMod ROM project going commercial, and the response to the project has been very warm, with a number of famous developers getting on with the program. There were questions on how fast they were going to be able to put out a Lollipop-flavored ROM, and seeing as they were able to boot a device recently under Android 5.0, it shouldn’t take long.

Paranoid Android is Vsenn’s first approved ROM partner

You might have had some doubts about how legit this new Vsenn modular phone is, but this announce could perhaps put you at ease just a bit. Vseen is announcing the start of its "Approved ROM Partner" (ARP) program and the first ROM to be part of it is Android Open Source Paranoid Android or AOSPA, more popularly known simply as Paranoid Android. If all goes according to Vsenn's plan, this will be the ROM's first partnership with an OEM, though it doesn't actually mean it will ship on it by default.

Paranoid Android 4.6 Beta 4: Quick Settings, new wallpaper

Due to some technical difficulties, Paranoid Android had to delay the fourth beta of their 4.6 release series. Fret not PA fans, as that update is now upon us. For a slight change, this release doesn't focus on the Dynamic Status Bars, lovingly called DSB. Instead, it gives a bit of polish to the Quick Settings tiles feature. And as a bonus, Paranoid Android is introducing a new default wallpaper, one that has the project's AOSPA moniker clearly emblazoned for everyone to see and enjoy.

CyanogenMod 11 M11 is out with another round of polishes

No, you're not seeing double. This is indeed CM11 M11, or to be more verbose, the 11th milestone release for CyanogenMod version 11. This release is sort of less spectacular than previous ones and probably rightly so. It hints that most of the development is now focused more on fine tuning than introducing big, invasive, and potentially disruptive features. It could also be the calm before the storm when Android L is released and all development hell breaks loose.

MultiROM now on the HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S4

We have already shown you what MultiROM can do – it is a great piece of Android software developed by XDA developer “Tassadar” that allows devices to boot into different ROMs each time it boots up. To date, a number of Motorola devices have gotten MultiROM ports, as well as the LG G2, the Sony Xperia Z and the OnePlus One. Looks like a few more popular devices will get multi-boot capability now – the HTC One M8 and the Samsung Galaxy S4.
