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.
Supercharger Sister Script, Ultimate Jar Power Tools, Brings Even More Supercharged Goodness
Over a year ago, we first brought you news of the Supercharger V6 script. Ever since, it has only gotten bigger and better. With a feature list, change log, and supported devices list too long to list, it’s definitely one of the most often used optimization scripts on XDA. Now, a sister script has been released to bring even more tweaking goodness.
XDA Recognized Developer zeppelinrox, developer of Supercharger V6, has released Ultimate Jar Power Tools to its own thread. Like Supercharger V6, the Ultimate Jar Power Tools script adds various features to a device, along with quite a few settings tweaks. A quick rundown of the features include:
Mod 1. Jelly ISCream for ICS and Jelly Bean. This will SuperCharge Your Home Launcher and ADJ/OOM Priorities! Bonus: You pick launcher strength!
Mod 2. Maximum MultiTasking Mods for Froyo and above has 2 parts.
a. -=Maximum Overdrive=- This lets you run up to 70 hidden apps instead of the default 15 (RAM permitting) without breaking the lowmemorykiller!
b. Time Killer Killer. This tries to bypass the 30 minute service inactivity limit by increasing it to 24 hours ;^] Mod 3. Non-Sense App Limit for Sense 4 and above (Not needed for Sense 3.6 and below).
This eliminates additional restrictions introduced with Sense 4.
a. Visible tasks increased from 8 apps to 50 (RAM permitting)
b. Something called “HTC Recent App Fusion” is rendered a non-factor.
The Non-Sense App Limit is something we’ve actually we’ve talked about before. Essentially, this mod delivers everything you could ever want in the field of multitasking. Do keep in mind that you can only run as many apps as your RAM can hold. That means that devices that came out recently with 2GB can actually use all 2GB of it now.

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...
There are some excellent ‘AAA’ tier games by huge development houses that offer fun, and, most of the time, in-app purchases. There is no doubt that some of these games are great. However, at XDA we like to keep an eye on the little guy. Some of the more successful Android developers have started out as the little guy. Today we celebrate another simple game developed by an XDA member. XDA Senior Member Rolf Smit offers up a 2D sandbox...
