Apps are at the front and center of any smartphone experience, and with over a million apps on the Google Play Store and new apps being submitted to our forums every day, staying up to date on the latest apps and games can be a hassle. At XDA, we don’t discriminate apps - if it’s interesting, innovative, original or useful, we mention them. The XDA Portal Team loves apps too, and we usually share and discuss the latest app releases...
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.

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.

[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:

Lollipop brought a revamp to the lockscreen, taking away custom widgets but showing your notifications instead. If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
