All-in-One Toolkit for the HTC Wildfire S
We’ve covered several toolkit releases over the last few months. From mskip’s universal toolkits for Samsung devices to a plethora of toolkits for HTC devices, there seems to be a toolkit out there for everyone. Well, almost everyone. The HTC Wildfire S hadn’t received support for one of the more popular HTC toolkits.

It is very similar to the other toolkits, and has the same methods and features. For those unfamiliar with the HTC All-In-One Toolkit series, features include:
- Install HTC Drivers

– Unlock Bootloader (Must place Unlock_code.bin in the folder)
– Install Recoveries
TWRP 2.2.1 GSM / CDMA – MAKE SURE TO CHOOSE THE CORRECT ONE!!!

For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...

A new, revamped and open source website is also in the works, with a look inspired by material design. We also got a tip about an...
