April Fools Day is once again upon us and as usual, tech companies everywhere have not failed to keep us entertained. With a trove of fantastic faux product launches and even some real product launches that were taken as April Fools jokes, people have been busy releasing their hilarious ideas.

Reboot Option in Power Menu 3-in-1 for Android
How many times you need to reboot and the option is not handy? If you have an Android device, you are probably missing the reboot option on the three in one drop down menu.

Fully integrated with the HTC widgets, the UI developer coded the reboot entry with the dialog, directly into the power menu to maintain a minimal footprint.
Normal recovery and boot loader can be selected as reboot option.

flashable zips for _deodexed_ roms: (do not flash them over odexed ones. if in doubt, consult your chef)
as the source code for htc’s _heavily_ modified and extended android framework is not publicly available, implementing features like this isn’t that straightforward as it is for aosp-based roms
i took the 2.2_r1.1 aosp sources, coded the reboot entry with the dialog (directly into the power menu to maintain a mininal footprint), created dummy stubs for external htc framework references, looked up and hardcoded htc string/icon resource ids, fiddled with the code until it barely compiled
then i baksmali’d my own build, took only the relevant changes, and injected them into the baksmali’d original

The beginning of April is dominated by April Fools. There are jokes and pranks everywhere, which are meant to fool people. This news is no joke though, as Google has pushed the shiny red button to send out over-the-air updates to supported devices. Well, sort of, as only a few of available Nexus devices got updates to Android 5.1. Here's a list of OTAs that can be downloaded and flashed by stock recoveries. You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
