New Feature for “Donate to Me” Gives Credit Where Credit is Due

On XDA, thousands of developers contribute their work to the community without asking for anything in return. For a while now XDA has given members the ability to add a “Donate to Me” badge under their that links directly to their PayPal account. While “donations” are never required, they are a great way to say Thank You if you’ve benefited from a developer’s work here on XDA, even if you’re offering just a small amount. Today we’ve added a little piece of functionality to make life easier for those that accept donations. Now, when you hit “Donate to Me”, the receiving member will see your PayPal email (like before), but also your XDA username, and the thread URL that spurred the donation. We did this because some developers want to be able to thank those that donate to them.

Thanks again to everyone that contributes development work to the community!

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...

HTC One M8 Owners: Upgrade to the M9, or Skip?

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.
