Carousel Animation for EVO 3D Finally Removed

Not every aspect of an OEM skin is a wanted feature. Sometimes features—especially pointless features—are just annoying and a waste of processor power. Perhaps one of the best examples of this is the carousel animation on the HTC EVO 3D. For those who don’t know, a user can swype across the screen and if they do it too fast or too far, the home screens will spin in a carousel motion for two full revolutions and then land on the same home screen it started on. Annoying, right?

EVO 3D users can finally get rid of what is one of the most pointless features of the OEM skin. XDA Senior Member ozkaya has released a mod that will remove the carousel animation and return the phone to its proper working condition. Unfortunately, the compatibility list for the mod is small, including InfectedROM for Sense 3.0 and Sense 3.5, along with the latest base of stock ROM. The list is sure to grow, however, as this is one of those mods that users have been clamoring for since release day. Presumably, it won’t be long until all the devs pick it up, and make it work with their ROMs.

Installing the mod is easy. Simply wipe cache and dalvik and flash over recovery. You can find all the download links and additional details in ozkaya’s thread. If your ROM isn’t supported, check back every couple of days, as more ROMs are sure to make the list sooner or later. And, as always, make a backup before applying the mod, just in case something goes awry.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
