There are so many Power Banks out there. However, they are not all the same. Some sacrifice weight for capacity. Others do the opposite. Some come with two ports and some come with more, while others come with less. Some are just batteries with a case around it, but others have some unique features. In this episode of XDA TV, Producer TK reviews the RAVPower RP-WD02 Wireless Filehub & Portable Travel Router. This device is the successor to the RP-WD01...
Jelly Bean for the MyTouch 4G Slide, Desire HD, and Motorola Defy
Among the newest devices to receive Jelly Bean include the T-Mobile MyTouch 4G Slide, Motorola Defy, and the HTC Desire HD. These devices are all a little older than some would expect to be receiving ports. But if the HTC HD2 can get it, newer devices should be able to as well.
The MyTouch 4G Slide Jelly Bean ROM was developed by XDA Senior Member xmc wildchild22 and is built from source. XDA Senior Member Quarx is responsible for the Motorola Defy ROM, and XDA Recognized Developer randomblame (also responsible for the Iconia A500 JB ROM) brought Jelly Bean to the Desire HD.
For all three ROMs, there’s a comprehensive list of things working and not working. For the MyTouch 4G Slide, here’s what isn’t working:
onscreen keyboard (I have to wait for the patches form CM for our hard keyboard phones)
For the Desire HD, which has a much shorter list:
mic – works in calls but crashes apps
audio routing – in phone calls audio comes out the rear speaker and when headset is plugged in audio comes out of both headset and speakers
There isn’t a running list of what’s not working on the Motorola Defy, but there is a list of things that are working:
Audio (thanks to maniac103)
For the MyTouch 4G Slide a
nd the Motorola Defy, the list of things not working is still pretty long—so they cannot yet be considered daily drivers. They are stable enough to try out, however, to see what Jelly Bean is all about. The Desire HD ROM, on the other hand, seems to be a bit more suitable for every day usage.

Update: Between the time of writing and publishing, the Defy port has made incredible progress, now even featuring hardware acceleration. It is now suitable to many as a daily driver.

Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...
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...
