Take Control of Your Mobile Device: Imaging, Custom ROMs, and App Level Backups presented by Jimi Mikusi

While mobile devices have quickly evolved as pocket-sized functional equivalents of desktop computers they have lacked certain features putting the user in full control of their device. In large, this is a necessary lock-down implemented by mobile device service providers for the purpose of providing a consistent support for their large user bases. But for the power-hungry user features have evolved to enable taking full control of your device. This talk will explore and demonstrate some of these abilities.

    Hey Srini, Thanks for the suggestion. Sorry we couldnt help find someone to address Instant Messaging in a talk this month, but you might have some luck talking to the members during open/side discussions. If not, lets try to work on getting it in next month.
