Paranoid Android

Paranoid Android “Immersive Mode” teased ahead of release

Android 4.4 Kit Kat introduced something called Immersive Mode. Basically, this means users are able to go full screen. Immersive Mode is a good option for games and reading apps and allows the system status and navigation bars to be hidden, thus adding a bit more real-estate to the screen. Immersive Mode also removes some of the distraction. The catch comes in with app support though, this is something developers have to enable.

Android 4.4 may change the way we use custom ROMs

Android 4.4 brought on a lot of changes to the operating system in general terms, but one change to how the system reacts to perceived malware could have a ripple effect. When booting, Android 4.4 uses a device mapper (dm-verity) to reduce the risk of root kits on your OS. This new device mapper checks the filesystem storage, and attempts to detect modifications at the block level.
