XDA Developers (also known simply as XDA; often stylized as xda-developers) is a mobile software development community of over 6.6 million members[2] worldwide, started on 20 December 2002.[3] Although discussion primarily revolves around Android, members also talk about many other operating systems and mobile development topics.

History[edit]

XDA-Developers.com (XDA Developers) was created by NAH6 Crypto Products BV (Netherlands). On 10 January 2011, XDA-Developers was bought by JB Online Media, LLC (USA).[4] The name XDA Developers is originally derived from the O2 XDA, which was marketed as a personal digital assistant (PDA) with "extra" features.[3]

Description[edit]

The site's main purpose is discussion, troubleshooting and development for Android, Sailfish OS, Windows Phone, WebOS, Ubuntu Touch, Firefox OS and Tizen phones. The site also offers Windows Mobile and Android users general information about devices, ROM upgrades, technical support, Q&A, and reviews of device applications and accessories. Separate forums exist for each model of phones manufactured by Micromax Mobile, Sony, HTC, Samsung, LG Electronics, Motorola, and many others. Forums are also available for tablets and many other devices.

Ownership[edit]

Joshua Solan manages and owns XDA Developers via his company JB Online Media, LLC.[5][6]

JB Online Media, LLC, is located at 1400 N Providence Blvd, Suite 303, Media, PA 19063, USA[7]

Custom ROM controversy[edit]

In February 2009, Microsoft asked XDA Developers to remove all ROMs created by OEMs.[8] In response, a petition was raised and signed by over 10,000 XDA Developers members. The petition was put aside when Microsoft did not pursue the removal of the customized images. Microsoft felt that using custom images based on the ROMs originally provided by Microsoft was acceptable as the ROMs work only on specific models and are not portable to devices for which the original ROM was not designed.

CNET Asia suggested that XDA Developers offers potential solutions to problems with many Android-based mobile devices. In other mobile phone reviews, testers at CNET preferred using XDA Developers' ROMs when carrying out detailed reviews.[9]

Many software and hardware hacks, rooting methods, and other phone and tablet specific tweaks originate from the members of the XDA Forum. The XDA Portal, launched February 2010,[10] is a source for Android and mobile phone development news.
