More and more smartphone manufacturers have been moving towards on-screen buttons, with Google really pushing for it over the physical button alternative. However, there are still a few OEMs (we're looking at you, Samsung) that have preferred to keep things a bit more traditional. Tell us which way you prefer and why.
ROMHelper For HTC HD2
XDA member 96edwy presents this tool that will help you learn the process of flashing ROM´s, radios and more. The interface looks friendly and the original poster mentions that the application is really simple. For now, it is only working on the HD2 and partially on the T-Mobile version, but future updates will include more devices. This app features easy to use UI, and several tutorials both written and video. It will become handy if you are thinking about cooking your own flavor.
Always do a back up, proceed carefully, and please leave feed back! The developer will like to hear what you think about it.

[09 JAN][APP] ROMHelper V0.8.8 – Tutorials, tools and roms
Hey guys, I’m fairly new to programming but i thought i would have a go at an app that could help people flash roms and radios etc. the app is simple (and i meen really simple) atm but i am hoping to extend its functionality soon. basically what the app does is gives you all the tools you need to flash a rom/radio/hspl etc, it provides download links and instructions for all the things you will need.
at the moment only the hd2 and part of the tmobile hd2 are supported, but i am planning to add more devices in future releases.
i am programming this in c# and im a bit of a nuub at it so if there are any developers out there who like the look/idea of the app then plz contact me, i would be greatful of any help and would love the app to go past just a simple viewer.
Continue to the application thread.

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong". Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
