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...
Major Update to the Android Everything Tool
A little over a month ago, we brought you news about the Android Everything Tool. The tool, made by XDA Senior Member ricky310711, really did as its title would lead you to believe, and automated a good number of tasks such as changing your LCD density parameter and performing custom recovery functions such as backing up your device and advanced wipes.
As with all things, however, ricky310711’s tool grew up a bit in the last month and has donned an impressive new feature set aimed at saving you even more keystrokes, so you can get in and get out without too much time lost. Just as before, it still saves you from a lot of work in recovery and adb. However, it’s most important new features are the ability to install Open SSL and Curl (a topic we’ve covered in the past), as well as access device information. Furthermore, the update now also allows you to download the app as a disk image.
Head over to the utility thread to get started. For those interested, below is the full feature list as stated by the developer. HTC Sensation XL users have an even longer list that adds S-Off, force update, flashing a custom radio, and more.

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.
