Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
[OTA Captured] Android 4.4.4 KTU84P OTA Now Live for the Nexus 5!
Earlier today, Google shocked us all by making the Android 4.4.4 KTU84P factory images available for (most of) the current generation Google Nexus fleet. Not too long after, the fine folks over at FunkyAndroid did what they do best, and they showed us everything that’s changed in this latest update. Now, the OTA updates have begun trickling out to current generation Nexus devices.
Even though Nexus device owners can simply flash the relevant factory images to update to Android 4.4.4 KTU84P manually, this isn’t an ideal option for everyone–namely those who haven’t rooted and unlocked their bootloaders, and would rather apply an incremental OTA. Luckily, the update has now arrived for the Nexus line’s latest flagship smartphone, the Google Nexus 5.
Naturally, today’s OTA comes in at the same KTU84P build number as we saw in the previously released factory images. And as one would reasonably expect, this update brings you to Android 4.4.4 KTU84P from the previously released Android 4.4.3 KTU84M.
This update, as is the case with all Nexus device captured OTAs, can be sideloaded by entering ADB Sideload mode from your stock recovery and executing the command adb sideload [update file name] .
If you haven’t unlocked your bootloader and are looking for an ADB Sideloadable OTA update, head over to El Daddy’s stock OTA help desk thread to get started.

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
