This wonderful Geek-Christmas time of the year is back once more, promising a lot of exciting reveals from big manufacturers such as HTC and Samsung, but also some pretty gems teased by other smaller OEMs. What kind of exciting products will we see?

EternityProject RSD Alternative Ported to the Droid 4
We’ve brought you coverage of their work to bring RSD Alternatives to the Droid RAZR, and now EternityProject is at it again. RSD has been known to have occasional issues, leading some to not trust it. This is especially true for Windows users, as the combination of Motorola Drivers, RSD, and flashing to AP Mode has proven troublesome.
Now, users of the Motorola Droid 4 can share similar freedom, thanks to XDA Recognized Developer kholk and crew. They have successfully brought the RSD alternative to the Droid 4. The method is pretty much exactly the same as it was on the Droid RAZR version. Says kholk:
1. Copy the FastBoot package into the ROM you’ve extracted
2. Boot in AP FastBoot Mode
3. Connect your Droid 4 to the PC
4. Execute “FlashME.bat” (Windows) or “FlashNIX.sh” (Linux)
Of course, the best tools are the ones that are also simple, and that’s something that EternityProject has tried to do here. Users will have a choice of downloads between Windows and Linux versions. And while Linux already has an RSD alternative, Windows users will be especially appreciative that there is now an alternative.
Those looking to bypass RSD should head over to the original thread for the instructions and downloads.

QuickPic, Google Photos, and the other mainstays treat raw images like they don't exist. This rundown seeks to fill the void and give you full control over your precious pictures....
While the majority of the top apps have already incorporated Google's newest design language, there are still very many apps that are in need of some Material Design love. Which apps do you think are most desperately in need of an update?
