The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
Circle Percentage Battery Indicator for Rooted Android Devices
Isn’t it just easier to have the battery percentage in the top bar instead of having to estimate how full your battery is? Even if you have a battery indicator with bars, it will not be as accurate as a percentage indicator. That’s why XDA member kubino99 made a How-To guide to install the above mentioned indicator, which includes a direct download from the XDA server for both Eclair (2.1) and Froyo (2.2).

You need to have rooted device and MCR r1 and R3 ROM.
Froyo version tested on DEFROST 2.0 Rom (for froyo I’ve updated just the code (services.jar) not the framework, but I’m sure some of the devs will take care of that )
If you have odexed /system/app this mod won’t work for you. Look for *.odex files in the /system/app folder.
For advanced users only. Check out the application thread for installation instructions and download.

In this episode of XDA TV, Producer TK reviews the RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub & Portable Travel Router. This device is the successor to the RP-WD01...
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?). 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...
