There are so many Power Banks out there. However, they are not all the same. Some sacrifice weight for capacity. Others do the opposite. Some come with two ports and some come with more, while others come with less. Some are just batteries with a case around it, but others have some unique features. 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...
Daydream Screen Saver for Pre-Jelly Bean Devices
While the Internet is still recovering from the excitement that came from the release of Android 4.3, Android’s 4.2 Jelly Bean upgrade this past October ushered in many new features. One of these features was Daydream, a pseudo-screen saver for your mobile device that could display certain items after some period of inactivity.
Ideally, we’d all be running 4.2 or greater. However, due to OEM and carrier laziness, not everyone is so lucky as to be on a recent firmware build. But as we all know, things that are intended for one OS build always end up trickling their way down to older versions thanks to equivalent apps and clever coding.
XDA Forum Member vijai2011 intended to bring Daydream-like functionality to devices running Froyo or later, and he has done so with his new app aptly titled Daydream. So what does the screen saver display? It shows the current date and time, with date display style being fully configurable in the app’s options. And to keep things interesting, the text is displayed with more than 20 randomized movements. Also configurable through the app’s settings menu are controls for when the app should run.
If you’d like to set up a screen saver on your pre-Jelly Bean device, this app may be what you’re looking for. Head over to the original thread to get some Daydream action on your pre-Jelly Bean devices.

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...
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...
