When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards.

DSIXDA’s ROM Kitchen for HTC Android Devices
Ever wanted to create your own custom ROM but don’t have enough coding experience to actually get started? Luckily, XDA Senior Moderator Dsixda has created a wonderful kitchen for HTC Android devices that should fulfill all of your ROM baking needs. This kitchen is compatible with both Linux and Mac OS X, so if you’re running Windows, you will need to use either Cygwin or a virtualization technology such as VirtualBox. Details for getting either of those solutions are available in the Kitchen FAQ.
According to the developer, this kitchen is targeted towards:
- Those who are brand new to creating custom ROMs and want an easy place to start;
- Those who just want to modify shipped ROMs or someone else’s custom ROMs to their liking;
- Those who are confused by all those scripts and complex commands required for building and extracting.
So far, the following devices are known to be compatible:
- Buzz / Wildfire
- Desire HD
- Desire Z
- Dream / G1
- Droid Eris
- Evo 4G
- Evo Shift 4G
- HD2 – using NAND ROM
- Hero / G2 Touch
- Magic / myTouch 3G
- myTouch 4G
- Nexus One
- Tattoo / Click
- All other rooted HTC Android devices (untested)
- All other HTC Windows Mobile devices that can run Android NAND ROMs (untested)
Even some non-HTC devices are compatible, according to other forum members:
- Huawei U8100/U8110/U8120/U8150
- LG Ally
- LG Shine Plus
- LG GT540 Optimus
- Motorola CLIQ
- Samsung Galaxy S – You must use RMGeren’s SGS version of this kitchen
- Sony Xperia X10 / X10 Mini / X10 Mini Pro – without boot.img
- T-Mobile Pulse

The Pebble Time just recently ended their Kickstarter with over 4000% of their initial request which was just $500,000.
