Android on the Horizon for HD2?

Unfortunately Android is still a long wait for the HD2, but booting a linux kernel is a lot closer! XDA developer dcordes and other clever XDA peeps have managed to get a booting kernel together, capable of displaying full 720p video without acceleration.

Although this is still far from reaching the finish line, this is a huge step towards running Android on the popular HTC Leo which still runs on Windows Mobile. Many hardware drivers are missing (sound, graphics, phone…to name a few) for the linux environment and the HD2 gets extremely hot when running haret, plus expect to get a few random bluescreens.

However, let’s not take anything away from the work that’s gone into this so far.  Once the devs have managed to make a 100% working kernel, with all the drivers, the next step will be getting Android to work!

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day? Back in 2011, when the world of Android was being awed by the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a little modification made its appearance...

HTC One M8 Owners: Upgrade to the M9, or Skip?

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.
