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...
Get your Game on with Multi-Touch MorphGear Skins
Down, down right, right + punch… Hadoken!. The eternal move/keystroke combination that has lived with us gamers for the longest time. All that is needed to release most projectile moves in the fighting games we know and love, most of which are fully playable in our mobile devices thanks to emulators like Morphgear. There is an issue though, due to the emulators not being able to recognize multi-touch, these combos are a pain to pull out. Since the release of multi-touch screens and frameworks, this is a thing of the past. On top of that, thanks to a few fixes, like the ones provides by XDA member antphoenix, we can now use those devastating moves at the right time. The dev has released a few skins for the emulator, which are comfortable enough to be able to pull off combos like the one stated above.
The skins work on the HD2 in portrait mode, so take them for a spin.
I’ve made three new skins for Morphgear on the HD2!!
These skins work in portrait mode and are ABSOLUTELY fantastic for games like Street Fighter2.
I can now do Ha-Do-Kens!!! I tried all the other skins I could get my hands on but found it too difficult to do the moves with them, so decided to try making my own with a modified keypad pattern, works a charm!
I’ve also extended the key-press areas to fit where fingers “would” go to by mistake for the buttons etc, and eliminated all blank space on the touch sensor part, so that you don’t get unwanted key presses…
You can find more information in the skins thread.

So this begs the question, is the M9 worth the upgrade if you already own the M8? Current HTC One M8 users chime in and let us know your thoughts.
At the annual Game Developers Conference being held in San Francisco, NVIDIA announced the latest addition to its collection of devices, the NVIDIA SHIELD. Powered by the Tegra X1 ARM SoC, the SHIELD is a set-top box running Android TV at its heart. But since it is a NVIDIA device, it does things beyond the simple streaming and gaming that is expected in this age. The SHIELD can locally run and stream 4K content to a capable TV. It is compatible with existing...
