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?

Transparent Task & Menu-bars Available for Sense 2.5
Member volDeus made a transparent taskbar and menubar work in Sense UI. It looks neat and very nice, you can control the level of opacity yourself to suit your needs. This works with Sense 2.5 and Manilla, but there’s also a opacity adjustment tool available if you don’t use Sense UI / Manilla

After reading Ham3r’s thread last week, Feature/Mod. Transparent bars for WM6.1 and WM6.5 builds 20757, I was determined to make the transparency hack he discovered, work in Sense UI. Here’s what I came up with.
- True transparency for task-bar and menu-bar in both orientations. No stretching.
- Opacity level control. (256 levels of opacity, from completely transparent to completely opaque.)
- Backgrounds on all Sense UI tabs.
- Higher image quality for backgrounds than standard Sense UI background.
- Seperate portrait and landscape backgrounds. No stretching.
- Compatible with most other Sense UI mods. (most notably Cookie’s home tab)
- WVGA and VGA versions available.
- Fully uninstallable cab.
For more information continue on to the application thread.

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.

Powered by the Tegra X1 ARM SoC, the SHIELD is a set-top box running Android TV at its heart. But since it is a NVIDIA device, it does things beyond the simple streaming and gaming that is expected in this age. The SHIELD can locally run and stream 4K content to a capable TV. It is compatible with existing...
