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...
I-Spy: Know it All Now for Android!
XDA moderators NeoS2007 and Madnish30 presents this fantastic application. I-Spy will let your Android device pick up the radio waves from other devices nearby (approx. 15 feet) to access the users’ device storage, or simply listen into their phone call. The app decrypts the GSM access codes to get access to the data stream. Then, it cloaks itself to blend into the data stream and simply monitor all communication between the devices.
Ever wanted those hot pics that your beautiful class mate has on her phone? Now you can have them!
Working for Gingerbread only for now but other Android versions, Windows Mobile & Windows Phone 7 will be up soon!.

3 Months of collarorative work between Madnish30 and myself, we’ve deceid to make our work public. Early tests made us realise this should be tested more thoroughly with our XDA members, so here we are.
What is it?
Well, let’s say you’ve always wanted to know what kinky pics that hot chick in your biology class has got on her i-Phone. Now you can! With I-Spy, your Android device picks up the radiowaves from other devices nearby (approx. 15 feet) to access the users’ device storage, or simply listen into their phonecall!
How does it work?
It’s actually very hard to explain, but it comes down to this: I-Spy picks up the radiosignal and decrypts the GSM access codes to get access to the datastream. Then it cloakes itself to blend into the datastream and simply monitor all communication between the devices.
So can I see/hear the complete communication between two people?
No. It’s limited to the device in the near vincinity. However, we’re working on getting a reversed datastream decryption, so we can get the other device too.
Continue to the application thread.

While HTC's latest flagship brings many new features, the aesthetic design of the device remains largely untouched in comparison to its predecessor. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". 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...
