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...
KitKat Arrives on Canadian LG G2 D803, Available as Full KDZ Update
You may recall that late last month the AT&T and T-Mobile variants of LG’s flagship G2 were starting to receive their official updates to Android 4.4.2 KitKat. While the former arrived in the form of an incremental OTA update, the latter was disseminated as a 1.5 GB full KDZ firmware package. Luckily, we also covered how to create a flashable Zip from the aforementioned KDZ.
Now the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update has appeared for Canadian carrier variants of the LG G2 D803. And as was the case with the T-Mobile update, it comes as a full KDZ update.
This update brings all the same goodies that we come to expect from LG’s take on 4.4.2. This includes UI refinements, improved battery life, faster performance, and an improved “knock on” feature. XDA Senior Member Idan73 was kind enough to share the KDZ link for the Rogers variant in this post. Not too long after, the other Canadian carriers were promptly added to Senior Member BigBoyPL‘s official firmware repository.
Make your way over to the firmware discussion thread as well as BigBoyPL’s firmware repository to learn more and get in on the discussion. And if you want to create a flashable Zip from the KDZ, be sure to head over to this guide by Senior Member somboons.

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...
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.
