You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though? A lot of the time, the applications' source code isn't even available, so how does it all work?

Sprint Diagnostics Brings On-the-Fly PRL Flashing, Instant MSL Code Access, and More
Sometimes obtaining information from your device or performing certain tasks are a real pain. For instance, on devices that have them, obtaining your MSL can be an tedious task if you’re not familiar with the process. The same goes with flashing PRLs and a variety of other actions. If only there were an application to help users do it all easier. For the Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus, there is.
XDA Recognized Developer bigrushdog, who also works with Team EOS, has released an application called Sprint Diagnostics. Originally, it was only for Team EOS ROMs. However, bigrushdog has recently released it for everyone. The application has a plethora of features including:
PRL Manager: No more test.prl crap. Just pick a folder, dump in all your prl’s and flash PRL’s on the fly. Be sure to report back when Sprint cancels your contract for you!
MSL getter: Just tap to get your MSL code. Simple enough.
USB Diagnostics Mode: With help and motivation from my main man, the cdma guru himself, Autoprime! If you know what this is, you’ll already appreciate it.
Hidden Menu: All the good shortcuts like update profile and prl, hands free activiation, data and debug menu, and all that.
This is one of those applications that you don’t know you need until you actually need it. There are many mods and troubleshooting guides that require things like changing PRLs or obtaining your MSL, and this application can make things a lot easier. Plus, if you just enjoy tinkering around with settings that usually required complicated dialer codes, then is definitely an app for you.

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
