Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
Having WiMax Issues With Your EVO? Check the RSA Keys
If you have an EVO, you may have suffered (after flashing back and forth between roms) issues with the 4G. As it turns out, there is a little something that is required to get the WiMax radio to work properly called RSA keys. Sometimes, they get corrupted after flashing recoveries or roms and as such, you may start having connection issues (if you can connect at all). XDA member joeykrim came up with a small app to determine if the RSA keys are still there of if they got wiped out. Getting them back can be complicated, but not impossible. It is always good practice to back these up before performing any major modification to the device.
There are several requirements to use this tool, such as root and busybox.
Please be sure that you leave some feedback for the dev after playing with this for a bit.
This application allows the user to easily find out whether or not their WiMAX RSA Keys are present. The WiMAX RSA keys are required in order for WiMAX operate properly.
Determining whether or not WiMAX RSA keys are present is a very important step in troubleshooting WiMAX connection issues.
You can find more information in the application thread.

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.
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...
