If you're the ROM flashin' type, there's a good chance you have quite a few Nandroid backups floating around on your SD card. While those are undoubtedly handy to have around, they're really only good for one thing: restoring. But what if you only need one specific thing from said backup – like one app, a text message, or your call log? Then the process becomes much more complicated – you have to create a backup of the current setup, restore the old one, backup the needed info, and restore the backup you just made.

ASUS is on a roll with the 4.2 updates lately – it started with the TF300 (Wi-Fi) back in early March, and followed with the Infinity (TF700) and MeMO Pad Smart shortly after. And of course, it released full ROM downloads along the way for those who prefer to manually flash their devices.

The 3G version of the TF300 – the TF300TG – is next in line for the 4.2.1 update, which appears to have started rolling out sometime over the past couple of days.

The day is finally here, boys and gals. The successor to the most popular Android phone to date is available online for those on AT&T and Sprint. For the small price of two-hundred dollars (with a two-year agreement), you can nab your very own Galaxy S4 on AT&T; if you're not into the idea of giving up on two Benjamins, however, you can score one on Sprint's network for $150... so long as you're willing to port your number in from another carrier.

Either way, if you need a way to protect your new (or old) Galaxy S device, iSkin has you covered with its exo case for the GS4 or aura and vibes cases for the GSIII. These are some seriously fantastic and unique-looking ways to protect your device without sacrificing style.

I've been using Samsung's Galaxy Note 8.0 for the past week or so, and it is hands-down one of the best tablets I've ever used. The form factor is great, and the S Pen adds some really useful functionality to this little beast. If you're looking for a new tablet in a smaller-than-ten-inches form factor, I readily recommend this one.

And once you've decided to pull the trigger and buy one, you may want a quick and easy way to gain root access, flash a recovery, make a backup, and all that other fun stuff that so many Android users like to do.

When it comes to well-support devices, ASUS is a company that stands by its products. The TF300 was the first non-Nexus device to get Android 4.2, and the Taiwanese manufacturer followed up by bringing the updated build to the TF700 (Infinity) and MeMO Pad Smart.

Today, it's sending another small (17MB) update to the TF300 that brings a handful of improvements and bug fixes:

1. IME bugs fix

Shortly before the Facebook Home launch, some users noticed a new version of Facebook was available on their device, but it wasn't through the Play Store. Instead, the update came directly through the app, bypassing the Store altogether. Naturally, there was outrage, people were angry, felt violated, and whatnot. For Facebook, however, this was a way of getting a beta version of its app out to some users without having to give it to all users.

LG has an event coming up in New York City on May 1st. That is exactly six days from today. And do you know what it's going to announce? The Optimus G Pro for the US. But if just knowing that isn't enough, pictures and full details of the device have hit the 'net today, leaving essentially nothing for LG to actually announce next week.

So, there's the phone, sporting full AT&T branding.

Android's navigation soft keys have proven to be a hit with many users, despite the fact that some manufacturers refuse to utilize them. As nifty as they may be, however, they get kind of boring to look at after a while. And, of course, most Android users love to tinker with things to make them look however they want. Up until now, though, there hasn't been an easy way to add a little flare to them.
