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...
XDA_UC_NET Updated to Version 0.4
There are several tools for Chefs available in our beloved forum. One that had a fantastic welcome by chefs was one created by XDA moderator Noonski. XDA UC (User Customization) is a silent installer, which allows a device to automatically install cabs, registry tweaks, and many other pre-configured modifications upon flashing a new rom. Based on Noonski’s idea, XDA member serfer222 just released version 0.4 of his XDA_UC_NET, which as its name suggests, is UC but written in C# rather than Mortscrip (used for the original UC).
The app functions in the same way as Noonski’s app by looking for a folder (or set of folders) with name XDA_UC and silently running the customizations present in that folder. Serfer222’s app has several marked differences, one of which is presenting a log to check the success / failure of the installation. This app has been successfully tested in QVGA and VGA emulators, but the dev is still looking for feedback from other members to keep improving it.
short description: This application will install all cab files, reg tweaks, provxmls, run mscr scripts (and more) from given folder. Use it after reflash new ROM to restore everything.
- supports localization
- uses OS functions (if possible, for example for installing provxml)
- predictable – you can control order of everything
- error reporting
- full customization log
I used XDA_UC (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show…ghlight=XDA_UC) in my ROMs and the idea is just great.
But there are some issues that I want to fix and also I have some new ideas.
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.
