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...
WIP: Lockscreen Honeycomb Style
XDA member bizdady presents this lock screen for your Android device that will give you the Honeycomb style. Initially, this lock screen is a mod for Cm7 Rc1 frameworks but more versions are being added constantly and you´ll find a Rotary Style system that can be adjusted to your liking. The developer recommends to use the regular sliders instead some of the extra icons because you might end up with a blank image. Evo, MyTouch and G2 versions can be found by now.
If you liked this work, please leave some comments.

WIP: Lockscreen Mod for CM7 RC1 (Honeycomb Wannabe Lockscreen)
So I decided to mod lockscreen to look a bit like the Honeycomb lock along with Honeycomb font on the Lockscreen Clock.
I originally made this for Evo users but Ive gotten number of request for other phones so thought I post it here. Since this mods your framework-res.apk it has to be phone specific (as far as I know this is my first real mod for anything other than my Evo) This mod is Cm7 Rc1 frameworks (to be consistent) but as things slow down I can take nightly requests (we love our nightlies!!). IF there is a nightly only a few days old please note that it will not be a top priority but I will update when I have time. Updating a nightly for every phone can get gruesome.
Some Icons (sound, Vibrate & Cyanogen robot custom icon) had to be blanked out so if you try using the regular sliders and using some of the extra icons you might have a blank image but the slider still works.
The Main lockscreen is the Rotary Style lockscreen. You can change it under settings > Cyanogenmod settings > Lockscreen Settings > Lockscreen Style
Continue to the lock screen thread.

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.
At the annual Game Developers Conference being held in San Francisco, NVIDIA announced the latest addition to its collection of devices, the NVIDIA SHIELD. 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...
