Defend Your Battery with Wakelock Detector

As our devices become more powerful, larger, and are filled with more and more software from the manufacturers (bloatware and some spyware); some things tend to take a hit that tend to make our experiences with our devices rather short lived.

Desire HD, G2, Desire Z, and MyTouch 4G Froyo Downgrade

The trend over the last month or so on XDA has been getting a number of devices downgraded so they can get to a bootloader that can still be unlocked with S-Off.
