Promo codes giveaway & Big things coming soon for Nexus & One Plus One users

First things first I'll be giving away 50 promo codes for FKUpdater as a token of appreciation for all the support you've been giving me through the years. The app's worth ~$4/3€ (un-taxed)!

Details about the app:
FKUpdaterhttps://goo.gl/v44jwx

Just share this post with all your circles and communities and I'll choose a winner in 7 days using random.org.

That said, there's some great news following some recent developments (which is why I've been quiet about Kernel updates since the last week).
I've been shipping FK for all my devices since the Nexus S using a full boot.img, which is the Kernel binary + ramdisk. For me that was always convenient since it's very straightforward, but with the increasing number of custom roms and modifications FK has been almost incompatible with all custom roms, specially the ones who build from CyanogenMod or make a lot of SELinux changes. It's been a terrible experience for my users (and I have a lot of them, thankfully). So with osm0sis's guidance (that you probably know from +xda-developers) we've been working on migrating FK to use the anyKernel2 method, which allows me to ship zips with the Kernel binary without a full ramdisk, but still applying my changes.

Our biggest challenge was adding auto-flash to FKUpdater with this new method since it's not a full boot.img that can't be written to the boot partition. After we nailed it I started shipping these zips for the Nexus 6P, 6 and 5 while getting feedback about this change and perfecting things as we go. This is why I've been delaying One Plus One FK release, I want to be able to ship the same (or relatively same Kernel binary that could work on both CM12.1 and CM13 without building different boot.img with different ramdisks.
This going forward you'll be able to enjoy FK in all your favourite roms without fearing of major breakage or bootloops during flash or the usual "does FK work with X or Y rom?". Magic.

Starting with the next FKUpdater release you'll be able to auto-flash these new things! And official release for 6P, 6, 5X, 5, 7 2013 and One Plus One FK's will also start sometime along FKUpdater's new release.

Thanks for reading and I hope you'll like these news! And throw some donations to osm0sis, not only has he been crucial for this to happen, but he helps the Android community a lot with his work. Paypal: osm0sis@outlook.com

You're f***ing welcome.

At long last, the project I’ve been working on has finally been released: Encore Music!

Encore Music is a new way to experience music on your Android device. It allows you to install provider plug-ins from the Play Store (and others) to play any music source directly into the same app. It makes it damn easy to build cross-services playlists, and unifies the playback experience into one place. On top of that, we did the same thing for audio effects, allowing you to experience the famous DSP Manager on any device and any ROM, and much more. Any of you can make a plug-in (music provider or sound effect) using our SDK :)

A few music sources plug-ins are available at launch: Spotify, Google Play Music, and YouTube ; same goes for sound effects : Bass boost, DSP Suite (DSP Manager clone), and a creation of mine called PlodeySound (psycho-acoustic bass enhancer similar to MaxxBass, and an aural exciter for better highs definition).

You thought having just a pluggable music app would make you happy? We’ve got some more stuff in stores for you:
Material design UI (with the famous play FAB morphing animation)
Chromecast support (yes, Spotify can be casted to your Chromecast) - and that works on any modern browser too
Artists, albums browsing, similar suggestions, playlists
Automix (Spotify only for now) allowing you to create automated playlists
Integrated music recognition, to directly add to your playlists the music you’re hearing
Integrated lyrics display
Drive mode, with voice commands, gestures and navigation heads (“Navheads”) for easy going back between Maps and Encore
Automated bluetooth actions (start playback and drive mode when connecting to your car BT unit)
Android TV  support
And much more!

I’m really glad to finally put this out to public after over a year of research and development to make this the best music app available. The best thing? The core is open-source! Check out the source code, released under GPL license, at https://github.com/fastbootmobile/encore - and download the production app at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fastbootmobile.encore.app 

Also, if you like high definition sound, deep bass and great high-ends and harmonics, you should check out my DSP plugin PlodeySound at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=fr.xplod.omnimusic.dsp

And I'm already working on my next big thing.

People around the world are searching for ways to help #Nepal, as shown in this chart of searches for ‘Nepal’ and ‘help’ in various languages in the earthquake’s aftermath. For our part, we’ve launched Person Finder to help people find family and friends affected by the disaster, and we’ve made calls to Nepal from anywhere in the world 1¢/min (normally 19¢/min) to help people connect. We chose 1¢/min, instead of making calls free, to prevent spammers abusing the offer and adding more load to the already stretched Nepalese telephone network. More info at: goo.gl/EqocGu
