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? While we've got a lot of leaked information from the highly expected S6 and M9, there is still a lot to learn about both - and about everything else that will be shown. What kind of trends will...
HD2/Leo 3D Driver Patch v2.0 – Configurable
Our friend Chainfire just updated his great patch CAB to version 2.0.This patch fixes some of the issues related to OpenGL games and apps not working as it should.

I must be crazy for doing this, as all my hacks and patches have only lead HTC to rip me off on the one app I actually sell, but here it is, 3D driver patch for the Leo. Seems HTC royally screwed up in the 3D driver area again.
This patch focusses mainly on a modified OpenGL ES CM, but a CL wrapper is also included (adaptation of NuShrike’s CL wrapper) and so is the TG-01 D3D driver. The latter is faster than the D3D driver that comes with the Leo, but it’s still not very fast.
For many Leo users several OpenGL games and apps do not work properly, are very slow, or stutter. This patch aims to fix these issues somewhat. A number of people have helped me test various apps and games with various revisions of this patch, but I’m sure there’ll be some issues with it or in combination with app X and games Y and Z, etc etc.
Usage – READ ME
This patch is a two-parter. It used to be a single package but I decided to split them up. You should install them both on the HD2. On the TG-01 and S200 I would only install the HD2-3D (first) package.
This has only been tested by myself on the HD2/Leo. Some people report it also has positive effects on TG-01 (nico101) and S200/F1 (hdubli).

Last week, I wrote about the best apps to unleash the raw photographic power of your Lollipop smartphone. All four of those cameras generate lossless DNG images with pounds of potential for apps like Photoshop to unlock, but what if you’re looking to edit or view those pics on the go? 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?
