XDA-Developers Book Giveaway!
As you may already be aware, we recently launched our first book, aimed at giving new users a fun and easily-digestible primer into the world of Android. In the book, we cover a variety of topics including the basics of rooting, some of the tools used in theming, and fun things you can do once you have achieved superuser status.
Now as a way of saying thanks to a few of our most loyal fans, we would like to give away twenty copies of the book. To enter, simply leave a quick comment below stating why you love XDA. Tomorrow at this time, twenty winners will be selected at random and receive a PM from yours truly asking for your mailing address. To make shipping a little easier, this contest is open to US residents only.
Now once you’ve read this and submitted your entry, get back to ROM flashing, you ORDers! If you don’t win but would still like to purchase a copy, please visit the following retailers:
