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?

Lineapolis – Old School Pre-Tech Gaming, Now on WM
If you are an old school guy or gal, you may remember those boring times at school where you had nothing to do while your teachers where yapping and asking you to not say anything. At those times, you would take a piece of paper from your folder and would turn it into a game mat for you and possibly the guy or gal sitting next to you. All sorts of popular games emerged from these kinds of situation, but none was as much of a head scratcher as the one made by XDA member mrdarek.
The game is free and should work under most resolutions according to the dev.
I try explain my game but I’m not native English speaker… Principal game rules are simple. You need draw line by 5 adjacent points. On start it not possible so game rules allow add 1 new point for create line. You have some default set points on start, their number increases with the progress of the game. There is also bonus mode in game – you can store points for future use if you draw line by 5 existing points.
Idea is not new. Before computer times I play this game on boring lessons in school using only paper and pen. But i was not happy – I could not restore my best games, so I create computer version of that game – now I can save games, undo moves, reviews games, found hidden moves e.t.c.
Unique value of that game is that you can play just for fun drawing lines or can play in ambitious style and try get best score.
Peoples don’t know my game because is unique in Internet – so many sudokus sokobans and other games for single players but no one has coded my favourite game. So try my game and give me opinion here, might you like it.
You can find more information in the game thread.

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...
