You've probably seen or installed modified applications, be it a patched dialer for your resolution or a custom WhatsApp version with added features. How do developers do that, though?

Tool for Rezound Makes it Easy to Restore to Stock
Restoring a phone to stock can be a serious pain, especially for HTC devices. Finding the correct RUU, flashing the S-On tool in recovery (sometimes repeatedly til it works), trying to flash it via the bootloader, then several hours of figuring out why the flash fails before it works. It can be very frustrating to get it back to full stock.
The tool, recently updated to version 2, has the capacity to create a flashable zip that will restore you to stock and, as of the update, can flash boot images as well. Says con247:
The main point of this tool is to create a PH98IMG.zip specific to your needs that has the right mainver attached to it and the right boot.img of the rom you want to get to.
Version 2 already out! You can flash custom boot images with this tool now! Put any boot image you want on your sd card named customboot.img and select the appropriate option in the tool.
While there are a few set backs, this tool promises to take the frown out of restoring to stock and that’s something every HTC user can appreciate. Do take note of the limitations at the bottom of the first post, as they are important.
For additional information, download links, a video and instructions, you can find all that and more in the original thread.

When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
