TWRP Running On The HD2!

You may remember that a few months ago, TeamWin released their own recovery image for Android devices. Much like ClockworkMod, Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) can be used across a wide variety of devices. Thanks to the efforts of XDA Recognized Developer arif-ali, this highly multi-functional recovery image can also be used in the legendary HD2. This recovery image is still a work in progress but it allows the end user to seamlessly do all the customization that he/she is used to and much more. TWRP specializes in handling partitions in a much more thorough manner than other recovery images as it allows you to select individual partitions to back up, re-size, and much more. It also allows you to customize the background color of the whole interface, so it does not get boring.

The dev in this case did enough work on the original development to get it going for the HD2 and has so far obtained a rather good resulting port. There are only a couple of minor bugs, which are reported in post #3 of the thread. If you do have an HD2 and would like to help the dev with this, please leave your feedback.

TeamWin Recovery Project, or twrp for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. 

You can find more information in the original thread.

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
