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...
Tablet Optimised HoneyBread V4 Theme for CM7
If you’re one of those clever chappies’ who uses Cyanogen Mod 7 after the several fantastic RC and stable releases, you’ll most likely be familiar with its great theme engine. It’s a great idea, we know. But if you’re a Honeycomb person, like me, and you like the icons used and the way it works and, most importantly of all, you own a tablet, you’re in luck!
Instead of using the original HoneyBread theme for CM7, XDA member mad-murdock has taken that dandy theme and optimised it for tablets. Everything in the theme is appropriately sized for use on a tablet, it’s installable via apk, and mad-murcock has been great enough to provide the source code for his tweaks, so that any of you lovely developer-chaps, if you like it, can go at it and help move it out of ‘alpha’ stage.

[CM7][Theme]HoneyBread Alpha 4 [TABLET TWEAKED]
After i developed the tablet tweaks, a lot of people started modifying framework and systemui to exchange the buttons instead of doing it with a theme. the way they were going just was bad by design. no fixes are included except those people repeat their work with every new nightly build. thats the reason we use theme engine by now. it works for all devices and all versions.
my initial complaints about modifying those files and my suggestion to use a theme were ignored – so i came to the point to do it myself.
all i did was adding honeycomb icons for the soft buttons to the already existing honeybread v4 theme
It being in alpha means a lot of options might not work, but that’s okay, we’re all understanding here! If you do run CM7 and would like to check out the theme, head on over to the original thread.

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.
