Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Convert LG KDZ ROMs to Bin/FLS with LG Automatic ROM Converter
While there are tools available to convert ROMs from one type to the next, they sometimes require a number of steps, and are often complicated and frustrating. This is especially true for devices that have their own ROM file type such as Motorola’s SBF or LG’s KDZ. As development on Android continues, it was only a matter of time before developers found a way to switch from those proprietary file types to something a little easier to work with.
For the LG Optimus Black, and possible other LG devices as well, there is now a tool that automatically converts KDZ ROMs to Bin/FLS types with just one click. Developed by XDA Forum Member jes0411, the automated ROM converter also has a number of other features. Among those, users can choose whether or not to inject ClockworkMod Recovery into the ROM as well. Once finished, users can install as usual. If they want root along with it, it’s as simple as downloading the superuser.zip provided in the thread and flashing it after the ROM flash. A nifty tool like this makes conversions a breeze, and should be included in any ROM developer’s tool repertoire.

Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
