Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us. Furthermore, since our smartphones are always with us, the majority of us end up taking tons of photos throughout the lifespan of our devices. But what happens to all the old photos you take? Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Toggle 2G/3G for Android Updated
Saving battery power is always one of our priorities. XDA member TheMasterBaron has updated this useful tool to toggle between 2G and 3G on your Android device. This application will let you configure your device to go to 2G when phone is on stand-by saving precious battery resources. The updated version features 2G when sleep on/off option, 2G notification fixes/options, and option to not switch to 2G if network is being used.
The developer mentions this tool will work on CyanogenMod 6 but some members reported working on other versions as well.

OK, so here is a little app I’ve started working on that enables the 2G Only setting automatically when the phone is asleep to save battery. It’s not polished at this point, just trying out the features and come up with more to add.

I CAN ONLY GUARANTEE IT WILL WORK WITH CyanogenMod 6

Other users have reported it working with these ROMs. Please let me know if you have success with other ROMs and I will add it to the list.
Rooted Froyo HTC Sense ROM
OpenDesire and variants like Pinky
MoDaCo Custom Desire Port

Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office.

At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
