ROMAbout – A Tool for Windows Phone 7 Chefs

With the recent influx of new Windows Phone 7 devices into the market, Windows Phone development has steadily increased here at XDA. Because of this, we’re seeing some innovative Windows Phone applications coming from our developers.

XDA Senior Member IzaacJ has created a handy tool specifically for Windows Phone 7 ROM chefs. ROMAbout is a package that enables chefs to include a wide variety of information in their ROMs, which is made available to users via an application located in the phone’s Settings menu.

With ROMAbout, there are no limits as to what information chefs can display in their ROMs. From simple information like ROM version, build date and developer credits, to more technical data such as driver versions and specific registry values. And to top it off, there’s also the ability to include images alongside each item.

The developer is currently working on updates that will allow users to edit certain registry values of the app, that the chef pre-defines as editable. Another longer term goal of the developer is to be able to replace the default Windows Phone “About” screen.

If you are a Windows Phone 7 ROM chef, then you really should head over to the application thread and get cooking!

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. Many Android enthusiasts throughout the community were expecting a large redesign of one of the most beautiful handsets ever released, but what we got is something more along the lines of an 'HTC One M8S". 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.
