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...
Updating EXT in your Kitchen the Easy Way
If you are a chef here on XDA (or any other forum for that matter), you probably know very well what it takes to make a port of any build into a newer one. One has to port XIP, SYS, and EXT, and most of these have to be manually compared package by package. It may not seem like much, but it can be very tedious and time consuming.
Thanks to an anonymous friend of XDA member HD2Owner, chefs (pro and novice alike) have a tool to make porting the EXT packages, a breeze. The tool in essence is a batch operation that compares all the packages present in the EXT folder between an existing build and one that you are willing to port. It then copies the ones that are only present in the newer releases into your kitchen’s folder, without touching or modifying either the source EXT or the kitchen EXT’s existing packages. The app has been tested and works for EVK and OSKitchen.
only new ext-pkg’s to a other kitchen.
a friend of mine wrote a little bat-file for me and i want to share it with you.
the creator insisted to call it bloody rudimentary but i think it’s quite useful.
he wants to stay anonymous…
around two hours of brainwork (i remember the command for this… what was it again?) and notepad.exe to create this from scratch.
You can find more information in the application 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.
