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...
TouchWiz 4.5 APK Repository for the AT&T Galaxy S II Adds ICS Version
As the new versions of Android keep on coming, so do newer versions of OEM software and skins. With HTC’s release of Sense 4.0 and Motorola always tinkering with the Motoblur software, it’s only natural for Samsung to follow up with a newer iteration of what could be their best yet, TouchWiz 4.5.
Most Samsung devices, however, don’t come equipped with 4.5 out of the box, and many users would like to experience it on their own devices. For those running the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II SGH-I777, you not only have the ability to run TouchWiz 4.5, but now you can run it on a variety of ROMs.
XDA Senior Member crazyagg has been maintaining a thread that features a number of stock apk files from TouchWiz 4.5 builds for users to install and use to experience. While there are a few apk files there to download separately, the full ICS apk zip file has over 60 ICS apks from TouchWiz 4.5, and users can basically pick and choose any or all parts of 4.5 to install.
While the complete package zip is not recovery-flashable, all the pieces are there for those wishing to use them as a base for development or to simply try out 4.5. If 4.5 doesn’t tickle your fancy, crazyagg has also uploaded the stock apks for anyone who needs to revert.
For additional information, the download links, instructions and more, hit up 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.
