New Section of Portal Starting Next Week: The Weekly Q&A
The News Writer team is always in the quest to make the Portal the best possible experience for our readers. With that idea in mind, starting next week we will be releasing a weekly article (segment) that will answer the Top 5 questions of the week. We will gather questions from all over xda-developers and post them in a front page article to ensure that they get proper visibility. As we are not bent on a single type of question or OS, we will try to address as many areas as possible. From flashing and HSPL, and from adb to zImage… and everything in between . Think of this as a “Dear Prudie” but for WM/Android devices
If you have specific questions that may seem of general interest, please tip any of the news writers and we try to feature them in the front page and get you some answers as well. Thanks for your continued support to xda-developers.
