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.
DirtyRacun Released for HTC EVO 4G LTE–S-Off for HBoot 1.15/1.19 without Downgrade
For some HTC EVO 4G LTE owners, it’s been quite a while since S-Off was possible. When HTC updated the HBoot to 1.15, the popular LazyPanda S-Off method from UnlimitedIO was no longer compatible. To make matters worse, HTC released another update to 1.19. Previously, we brought you news of a downgrade method that required users to hard brick their phones and use Qualcomm Download Mode to bring them back to life with an older HBoot to then use LazyPanda again. Now, UnlimitedIO has a new S-Off method.
XDA Recognized Developer LadyX, on behalf of the entire team, has released DirtyRacun. Like LazyPanda that came before it, the tool gets you S-Off. The best part is that there is no complicated and potentially dangerous downgrade method.
The process is, as you probably imagined, rather complicated. Users will be required to download the files, relock their bootloaders, flash the latest RUU to get back to stock, and then unlock the bootloader again via HTCDev. The reason is because users need to be on bone stock without root or a custom recovery. It has to be only the bootloader unlock, and that’s it. From there, run DirtyRacun and profit. Before it was feed the pandas, and now it’s give Racuns the rabies shots.
To get your bootloader unlocked completely, check out the original thread.

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. 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...
