Android Flasher Utility Updated to 2.2.0.5 for HTC Phones

XDA user danward has updated his Android Flasher Utility to 2.2.0.5 and with it comes a few new features if you happen to be an owner of one of the phones his utility supports.

Here’s the change log:

Donate – Added auto-login.
Donate – Added another “Download Archive” button for convienence.
Donate – Fixed a few exceptions.
Donate – Fixed some downloads.
Donate – Auto sort list by version.
Donate – Bigger image displayed on hover of image/splash.
Reworked flashing selection page.
Reworked about page.
Reduced timers from 7 to 2.
MessageBoxes for errors.
MessageBoxes on detection of S-ON and non-ENG bootloader.
Fixed backgroundworker on the flashing process.
Added “Errors/Requests” menu item under help.
Cleaned up code.
Added news page.

That’s a pretty impressive list of changes for an incremental update so users of this utility should update their copy lickity split. Users who have supported phones, such as the Evo 3D or the Desire Z and who wanna give a try can check out the full phone supported list and additional features on the original thread found here .

For those who don’t know what this does, it’s a Windows exclusive utility that allows users of supported phones to flash over their bootloader, splash screen, recovery and radio (or each one individually) from a user friendly, super easy UI on their computer. Does that sound like win to you? That totally sounds like win to me.

I’ve always been a big fan of HTC phones and I wish I’d known about this software back when I had a HTC device. So if there’s anyone out there who has checked it out and wants to comment on the level and breadth of its awesomeness, feel free to leave us a comment!

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
