Collection – CWM Recovery [WIP], Unsecure BOOT, ENG H-BOOT, And S-OFF for HTC Sensation

With the arrival of the HTC Sensation, members and developers who want the device started gathering all the tools required for cooking and modifying. XDA member Bin4ry placed a great thread where he collected many goodies for you to play with. You will find Unsecured Boot.img (gives you a root adb shell), ENG Hboot (enables more HBoot commands), and recovery files. All these tools should be used only on S-OFF devices. The recovery for the Sensation will be able to flash ROMs on s-off devices very soon.
Remember that this tools should be used carefully. If you did use them, please leave your feedback.

Hi,

this is a development & collection Thread. The PG58IMG.ZIP files can be flashed through SD-CARD in HBoot Mode. This works only for S-OFF users. If you don’t have S-OFF you cannot use the files. There is no way to get S-OFF on a normal S-ON phone now.

Unsecured Boot.img (give you a root adb shell):

ENG Hboot (enables more HBoot commands, not necessary for most users):
[thanks Rahan95 for dumping ]

I’m trying to get the CWM Recovery working. It would be helpful if S-OFF users flash it and report what’s working and what’s not. ATM we have a screen issue that i’m trying to fix. So it would be nice if you make photos and attach them to your post. Also please attach the 2 files:
/tmp/recovery.log
/tmp/log_bin4ry.txt

Continue to the original thread to find more.

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...
