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.
New HTC Messaging Client Versions
XDA member pyrorob decided to provide to all of us the latest versions of HTC messaging client for Windows Mobile devices translated into English. This is based on oriental device huashan’s work similar to our Leo.
Tha cab files were initially meant for WVGA resolutions, but members have reported that it is also working on VGA resolutions as well.
Be sure to read and understand all the instructions before installing to avoid any problems.

Ok, so, I was providing this in the HD2 apps forum and it kept being suggested to me to start my own thread, so, im thinking.. why do that just there? Its for wvga devices and people use it on multiple ones, so why not post it somewhere that everyone can see it?
So, what I’m going to be doing, is providing the newest versions here in cab and ext if requested.
Also, I’ll try to provide some extra cabs here every once in awhile (like network settings,graphics tweaks,etc.).
Now, some advice:
now for the people that are having problems installing/upgrading, the most common reason is due to the fact that if you had the client installed before, it installs a service, which is an actively running dll that runs in the background (like an openly running exe, BUT IT IS NOT AN EXE!) you have to shutdown the dll to overwrite it or you will face issues.
Now in energy roms, you can go to start/tools/ and open task manager, after it loads, touch in the top right where the little arrow is and go to “services” NOT PROCESSES, find “messaging service” and touch and hold on it and set it for manual and soft reset.
If the client was installed by you, then go to remove programs and uninstall it, soft reset,then install the client you want.
if it was pre-installed, just install.
You can find more information in the application thread.

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...
There are some excellent ‘AAA’ tier games by huge development houses that offer fun, and, most of the time, in-app purchases. There is no doubt that some of these games are great. However, at XDA we like to keep an eye on the little guy. Some of the more successful Android developers have started out as the little guy. Today we celebrate another simple game developed by an XDA member. XDA Senior Member Rolf Smit offers up a 2D sandbox...
