ClockworkMod Recovery and TWRP for the Nexus 4
The Nexus 4 was just recently released, and naturally it didn’t take long for developers to achieve root and start releasing development work. With all Nexus devices, unlocking the bootloader is fairly simple. You need the Android SDK for Fastboot support, and you simply enter fastboot OEM unlock.
First came ClockworkMod Recovery for the Google Nexus 4 thanks to Koush. The update was posted to the forums by XDA Forum Member fkrone. The recovery is the official version of ClockworkMod Touch, and it seems to be highly functional.
For those who prefer more eye candy and an even greater number of additional features, XDA Recognized Developer Dees_Troy has ported his famous Team Win Recovery Project 2.3 to the device. As usual, the TWRP 2.3 port includes all of the previously covered goodies such as a fancy themable GUI, ORS support, and much more.
For more details, check out the TWRP 2.3 and ClockworkMod threads!

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget.

Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
