Nook Color Getting Official Froyo Update

Better late than never, but the Nook Color seems to be getting their much deserved, official Froyo update today. This was rumored a few days ago by XDA member Tool Belt, who posted a link to another site, which claimed that this would be the case. Needless to say, NC owners have been enjoying Froyo goodness (and Gingerbread as well) for quite a while now. This, however, is always nice as the base on which the update was made, likely contains a few improved official drivers, apps, features, and much more. This will likely open the doors for many of our devs to start tweaking, extracting things, and hopefully, building new roms from a much more stable base.

There are mixed reports but all of them point at this being far better than the original stock. Having tried a NC with original stock myself, I can only say that they would have had to work REALLY hard to actually make it worse. Have you tested this yet? Please leave us your thoughts.

NOOK Color’s update to Android OS 2.2/Froyo offers system improvements, browser performance and a more complete Web experience giving customers access to enjoy even more video, interactive and animated content. NOOK Color now includes support for Adobe® Flash® Player

You can find more information in the update thread.

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

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...

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.

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.
