Battery Icon Mod Just Released for Android

Yesterday, we published an article of some custom battery mods for the Epic that were being prepared by XDA moderator theimpaler747. XDA member appelflap has decided to team up with impaler747 and are working together in a one stop shop for battery mods… for as many devices as possible. The app seems to be rather simple to use with a very simple UI. Needless to say that if you are not that into heavy modding and hacking, this will give you a tool to change the look on your device easily.

The app currently supports the Epic and the Galaxy S and it is rom specific, meaning that you have to make sure the mod you are applying is for the rom that you currently have. The dev is working towards making this more universal, so if you have any tips or would like to help out, make sure that you drop a post or a pm for the dev.

(Joint project by me and theimpaler747)

Battery Icon Mod is a general app for turning the standard battery icon into something more useful and more sophisticated.

The (ambitious) goal is to serve mods with this app for as many devices as possible. Right now, only the Galaxy S and Epic (thanks theimpaler747) are supported.

You can find more information in the application thread.

In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

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.
