The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.

V6 Supercharger Ported to ICS for Nook Color Using Botbrew App
There are a variety of ways to put a script on a device. Sometimes it’s as east as flashing an update.zip from your custom recovery. Other times, it’s unfortunately a little more difficult. For those toting the Barnes & Noble Nook Color, you can get the highly regarded V6 Supercharger script on your device using a simple application called Botbrew, developed by XDA Senior Member inportb thanks to a method posted by XDA Senior Member mateorod.
The method is easy. Simply download and install Botbrew, open the application, do a little configuring, a quick ADB line, and then it’s configuring the script and rebooting. It doesn’t get much easier than that. The script has its usual set of features including tweaks to help overall performance and battery life. If anything should go wrong, the noted troubleshooting method is simply repeating the process and rebooting again. Uninstalling is a rather simple process as well. According to the developer:
Should you ever wish to un-Supercharge, the script completely takes care of that for you, restoring any and all files modified by the process, including the original services.jar!
Apparently, the only thing it doesn’t do is fry your bacon.
For anyone running CM9 on the Nook Color who wants to check out the script, visit the original thread for download links, instructions, and a very helpful FAQ on the best configurations. Don’t forget to make a Nandroid backup before attempting, just in case.

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...
