Polished T-Mobile G2 Battery Cover

Some members like to go deeper when personalizing their devices, even further than just software. XDA member znanoDA took a step into personalizing the body of the device itself, making a chrome polished finish for the battery cover of the G2. All started because the plastic layer started to peel, which is a problem many will be familiar with. After noticing this, he decided to use sand paper to get rid of the plastic. The finished work looked nice and shiny. The original poster mentions that he used the following materials:

  • Automotive Wet/Dry sand paper
  • 400-600-800-1000-1500-and finally 2000 grit

Be aware that the only responsible for making this will be you, so proceed with caution. If you have another method, please join the thread and share your experiences.

A Look at the Telegram+ Situation

Most of this article doesn't only apply to Telegram+ -- it just happens to be an example that got a lot of coverage elsewhere, with many authors or commentators putting the full blame on Google, Telegram, the Telegram+ developer or even WhatsApp Inc (eh?). In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...

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.
