Are You Tired Of Using Wires To Charge Your EVO 4G? Homemade Inductive Charging Station Is Here…

At this point in time, I guess it would be safe to assume that when someone asks us about warranty left on our devices, we cannot help but to either laugh or at the very least, smile. The reason for this is that we all know how to properly break it by flashing the device(s) that we have. But there are others out there who truly believe that improvements to a device can also be done in the hardware side of things. XDA member asmd6230 is such one individual as he posted a guide with instructions on how to make your device be able to charge via induction. Now, this is a concept that comes from the Palm Pixi and a few other devices of its kind. Basically, you will simply lay your device in the charging station and it just starts charging, Olin and simple. Also, you do not need to spend them money on a Power Mat or any such product. You will need the back cover and the charger of a Pixi and a few tools to do this yourself.

Please ensure that you understand what you are doing and that you are at least somewhat familiar with soldering to avoid royally messing up your phone. Have fun and happy modding.

I looked into it and found the the palm pre also had this and some chap on the net had figured out how to shoehorn the unit into an evo. 

You can find more information in the original thread.

Device Review: No.1 X1 Rugged Smartphone

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
