Think YOU Love XDA? Look at This Amazing HD2!

Pretty much everyone who drops by this behemoth of a site can find something they like… But what do you do if you really, really like XDA? Perhaps this is a question best answered by forum member facdemol, who has shown his XDAddiction in a rather creative way.

I had some spare time and thought of making something i wanted to do for some time ago. It’s my first time doing this (although i’m familiar with the process since i use it for PCB making) but i thought i should give it a try. And in great recognition of what the XDA community enabled us – the users – to do with our phones, i wanted to brand my phone’s battery cover with the XDA logo next to the andoid logo, the thing (os) that xda developers made possible to us. Ah and in the xda spirit, i thought it would be kind of cool to handcraft the design of that battery cover.
Here’s the story of today’s afternoon for me 
…and possibly a guide for you, daring folks around there who just happen to have a spare scratched and ugly looking battery cover like i did 

Keeping true to the ethos of XDA, the highly skilled modder has even given step-by-step instructions (and plenty of pictures) on how to attempt this on your own battery cover. Continue on to the modification thread to learn how to do it yourself!

[Thanks for the tip, CTM!]

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
