Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?).

All-In-One Toolkit for the HTC One X
Toolkits have been popping up left and right on XDA recently, and for good reason. They are generally very helpful and give users the ability to use a plethora of tools within the confines of a single application. Typically, most toolkits include basic features such as gaining root access, flashing a custom recovery, and unrooting. Some, however, include much more than that.
Now, the HTC One X has such a toolkit. The toolkit features range from common to unique and, based on version, include:
Flash Kernels & Modules
Reboot The Phone
Reboot Into Recovery/Bootloader
Kernel Repack – Phone on Android with USB Debug Enabled – No Need For The Recovery
Repacked output Format Kernel.Ramdisk.IMG
One Click Root
Reworked Module Flasher
Decreased/Removed some delays
Fixed Faux Module Unzipping Problem
Added RUU Zip Flashing Ability – For Advanced Users
Developed by XDA Senior Member thunder07, the toolkit fills the usual niche of having one-click root and flashing recoveries. It also contains some unique features, such as kernel and module flashing and an RUU zip flashing utility. The broad utility of this toolkit makes it a must have for One X owners.

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
