, Ports, CodeThis will be our roadmap- KK will be make or break.
We will end that old model where developers are positioned on X devices to produce low quality roms. It does not matter how good you are and how many bootloaders you have cracked - there will always be things outside your scope. Therefore the entire PA family will support single devices, all our combined skills will come together for something truly awesome.
Ports will still exist and we will continue to help out, create branches for that, etc., but official PA will be on a couple of devices that we announce later. Nexus 5 will be one of them of course. Currently supported devices have nothing to fear - we'll place it into capable hands, don't worry.We will re-do PA from scratch,
which means all the knowledge that has accumulated, everything that we'd do different, we'll implement again. The focus is on modular design and clean features. Features must be polished and integrated, 100% stable and fast - we will go through various iterations as usual (PIE1/2/3, Hybrid1/2..., etc.) until each and every of our submissions is perfected.There will be new features as well in 2014,
things that will have similar impact as Hybrid, Pie or Halo. Most of them are just ideas and concepts, we're not entirely sure where to start but that can be figured out.We will reduce kanging to a minimum.
We never did that much but even essential things like Cyanogens Quicktoggles fall out. Instead we will write them again, but in Googly way. There is not a chance that Matias Duarte would approve of any of these features the way they are now. Our goal is to stay closer to stock, things must be nice to look at, simple, uncluttered and easy to modify
(like not having to sift through hundreds of system settings to add a silly toggle). Other essential things that have that polish we can kang if there's demand.
Another thing that is of great importance to us is steering this thing away from the hacky rom scene. Unix types, Crackflashers, welcome, but we want normal Android users as well,
those that enjoy stock but want more without having to study commandline tools, reading endless how-tos from dubious sources. We've already begun writing the updater, but this will go further, quite possibly a rom installer for PA beginners. Tutorials on how to flash, more support overall for things like radio, etc.
