Update 24.09.15:
Forum layout
I have improved the forum layout a bit, now all sections have the same colors and icons, which means:
Green (Lifebelt) = Q&A
Blue (Gear) = Firmware
Red (Box) = Apps
Yellow (Wrench) = Rooting & Modding

I hope that this helps new users to feel more comfortable.

Open Beta.


Feedback site
Status unknown - will be done as one of the last things.

noticed that for last… i dont know maybe 5 days… i do not get any notifications about new posts in Watched threads/sections just now checked… “Unread” indicator was not red but if i enter it i can see that some topics got reply recently… that i didnt read or didnt marked as read.


one more thing… will be nice to see more format codes/options… ( like Bold/ italic/ List and all that stuff that makes your topic looks better) simple example as some simple colors will be nice when you make a Firmware Update log and want it to look nice with headlines etc…

Thanks for your great site mate!
