It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come. It's time for a look at something which cropped up on my radar today, namely a service called FileThis. I won't do them the search-engine-ranking honor of providing a direct link to their site, but a quick search will find them, and their app on the Play Store and iTunes store....
Updated Your EVO 4G To Stock 4.24 And Miss The Reboot Options? Here Is A Fix…
We all like and enjoy the ability to reboot into diferent modes on our Android devices. It saves us from having to manipulate our devices in weird and strange ways as well as having to perform weird button combination presses. If you updated to the recent update to Gingerbread on the EVO and like the stock rom, you will likely be missing out on this great feature and the ease of a one click access to Recovery. Well, fear not because XDA member ca1ne has released a mod to add this functionality to your rooted and Sprint powered EVO. Needless to say, this is available in other custom roms, but if you are not into flashing a whole lot, then this should prove to be a good solution for you. The installation of the mod is relatively straight forward, but you do need to be rooted for this to work.
Please leave some feedback for the dev if this work well for your device.
This is a ported reboot mod for the new 4.24 OTA based roms.
You can find more information in the fix thread.

While there are frequent unexplained changes and pushes to Google's AOSP repositories, an interesting-looking new branch has been pushed out recently, called "master-soong".

Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...
