Google announced today that it will be bringing ads to the Play Store, and while that will surely annoy the majority of us, it isn't the only thing that sucks about the Play Store. From the lack of clear communication with developers to ridiculous restrictions, there are a handful of very annoying things about Google's approach. Let us know what bugs you the most about the Play Store.
ClockworkMod Recovery for HD2-Android
NAND ROM´s for HTC Leo just started to arrive and with it the ClockworkMod Recovery. XDA member RaiderX303 wrote a complete post explaining how this works to detail. It is fully working except for the ROM Manager support that still has some issues. The latest version 1.1 is now based on a Gingerbread source. Features like flash ROMs in update.zip format, backup and restore ROMs using Nandroid, flash ROMs from the SD card without use of a PC, easilly Wipe all Data/Cache, and many more are present as well.
A full guide with all the how to´s is included, just be sure to know what are you doing before proceeding, this is a delicate process and should be completed properly.
And as always please leave feedback!

As we now have NAND booting for the HD2, its time we also had a way to flash ROMs from the SD aswell so here we have ClockworkMod Recovery compiled for the HD2. It is fully working except ROM Manager support still has some issues. See below for features and how to use.
Because ROMs are not flashed using DAF, a set partition layout is required before flashing any ROMs using recovery, included in the download is DAF which is configured to create the required partitioning, just run as you normally would to flash a NAND ROM and you are set to flash a new ROM through recovery
GOING FROM A DAF FLASHED ROM TO A RECOVERY FLASHED ROM WILL WIPE ALL DATA
IF YOU FLASH ANOTHER ROM USING DAF, RECOVERY WILL NO LONGER WORK CORRECTLY, YOU WILL NEED TO REFLASH THE PARTITIONING TO USE RECOVERY AGAIN
YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE AN SD ROM FROM MAGLDR WHILE USING RECOVERY
-Flash ROMs in update.zip format
-Backup and restore ROMs using Nandroid
-Flash ROMs from the SD card without use of a PC
-Easilly Wipe all Data/Cache
-Repartition SD card for use with Apps2SD
-Full Root ADB access
-Fix app permissions
Continue to the recovery thread.
Thanks for the tip, orangekid

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year. The direction of smartwatches is unclear to even the biggest OEMs, and with every new option there seems to be polarizing dissonances from what people and OEMs want and what they both think they want. We've documented many of the reasons as to...
Every day, the majority of us use the internet through several different internet service providers, but what we may not think about whilst using this service is how much control these companies have over our experience. AT&T recently launched their rival to the Google Fiber service and subsequently looked for a way to further monetize on their offering. For an extra $29 on top of the $70 monthly charge, you can buy your privacy back from them. Otherwise expect online adverts...
