Now, the short story. If you're wondering what's the reason behind my little activity on the custom ROMs development field, it's because last 4 months brought a lot of changes in my life. In June 2015 I became a proud father of the most beautiful girl in the world. As you can imagine, priorities changed :)


Also, I got married with my fiancée few weeks ago. We planned this marriage since 2013, but as always, last few weeks of preparations were extremely busy. Plus the baby was already here :)

It's worth to mention, that during last few years Android Revolution HD was the most popular custom ROM for high-end HTC devices. With a total number of 6.430.689 downloads (6,5 millions !!!) Android Revolution custom ROMs series became the biggest and most desirable custom ROM for the HTC high-end devices.

Android Revolution HD will still be supported, and all projects will be still continued. I just can't spend as much time on it as I used to spend in the past. Plus the the real life business I own expanded and developed significantly, so I need to focus now on my family and work. Both needs me :)

PS. I'm thinking about getting a Nexus 6P as my next daily device, as soon as it's available in my country. Are you considering Nexus 6P as your next device too? Would you like to run Android Revolution HD on it? Let me know, as I'm trying to find out if it's worth to start N6P custom ROM development.
