Transformer Prime Gets Battery Improvements with System Update 9.4.2.14

Early this morning XDA Junior Member Liferules reported in our forums that a new update had appeared for his Asus Transformer Prime. Since the previous update (9.4.2.13), intended to improve GPS performance, Prime users have experienced random restarts and decreased battery life. XDA Senior Member demandarin, shortly after the release of the update, posted this screenshot, showing the system using the previously disabled low-power CPU frequencies. Countless other posters confirmed improved battery life and several even claimed improved WiFi performance (not confirmed).

If you are a rooted Transformer Prime user out there make sure you use OTA Root Keeper to maintain root access after the OTA update. Please also note that you WILLl lose root even with Root Keeper if you install the update using anything but the official over-the-air update. Updating using extracted blob files will break root no matter what.

Most users that received the update already were in the United States with the exception of a few users in Mexico. European Prime owners, sit tight. Representatives from Asus have confirmed that the EU version of the device will get the update early next week. Already installed the update? Want to follow the progress as users report their findings? Be sure to heck out the original thread here.

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

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...

HTC One M8 Owners: Upgrade to the M9, or Skip?

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.
