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...
Simplify Your Flashing with AutoFlasher
Ahh, the joy of flashing! For us mobile, ORD-positive, addicts, there is no better feeling than that which comes after refreshing our devices with the newest leaks of the newest OS versions. Of course, not too many pleasures in this world come without having to make some sort of effort. In the case of flashing, the issue normally is that we tends to flood our storage with files upon files on top of more files, all of which can be confusing at times and flashing the wrong file could potentially have serious consequences. What if there were a way to automatically flash everything you want without having to dig around? If this sounds appealing, then XDA Forum Member richardddd may have a surprise in stock for you.
Autoflasher is a small and very light weight script, which essentially hunts down flashable ZIP files that fall under certain nomenclature. Instead of having to pre-organize everything in folders or having to go up and down throughout your storage folder(s), looking for the correct ROM and kernel to flash, autoflasher will do that for you. You simply define the naming structure of the file(s) that you intend to flash on your device and the script does the rest. It will find, lump, and flash all the files that are being requested with minimum to no input required from the end user. Most recoveries already offer such functionality (batch flashing) as well as other apps like Mobile Odin (in the case of Samsung devices). However, autoflasher does not even require you to go into recovery as it will do it by itself. The filters are fully definable and easy to set up.
Please be advised that you will need to be rooted and have TWRP installed on your device. Please take it for a spin, flash a few things, and share your experiences with the rest of this ORD-filled world of ours.
Im a flash junkie and I was getting tired browsing trough differend folders in my recovery to flash ROM, kernel, themes, tweaks etc – every time i wanted to update my ROM.

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...
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.
