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?

Samsung Infuse 4G Unlock Code Found
A while ago, we brought you a unique method of unlocking the Samsung Galaxy S 4G using a hidden code within the phone. It’s was unique because instead of using usual tools and methods that we all use now, this method involved using a hex editor to find the unlock code already buried in the files of the phone itself and using it to unlock the phone. It took some time, root access, and a hex editor, but it worked.
All right ladies and gentlemen, coders and non coders again I have personally found the unlock code NOT THE FREEZE CODE only the unlock code for your Samsung Infuse 4G by ATT hidden in the same files as previous Samsung phones.
This procedure is similar to finding the unlock code for the Vibrant 4G for those that have performed my steps in the past it should be a no brainer but if not please once again read everything carefully its not hard but just takes patience Of-course this all depends on your dedication and time but hopefully I have simplified it for you.
This is very cool because instead of coercing this code out of your carrier—or paying to get it in some cases—you are using the code that came with your Infuse 4G, and you’re getting it yourself. As mentioned, the process is tedious but not overly difficult, and those who have followed these methods on older devices shouldn’t have a problem. For more info, go to the original thread.

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.
At the annual Game Developers Conference being held in San Francisco, NVIDIA announced the latest addition to its collection of devices, the NVIDIA SHIELD. Powered by the Tegra X1 ARM SoC, the SHIELD is a set-top box running Android TV at its heart. But since it is a NVIDIA device, it does things beyond the simple streaming and gaming that is expected in this age. The SHIELD can locally run and stream 4K content to a capable TV. It is compatible with existing...
