Enable GSM Phone Calls on Your HTC Jetstream

As they say, the real fun doesn’t start until your device gets root and s-off and that’s certainly the case with the HTC Jetstream. The device got root just a couple days ago and the modders and developers have gone to work making the already great device even greater.

XDA Senior Member Giblet-dono has drawn up a quick tutorial that will give your HTC Jetstream the ability to make and receive phone calls over a 3g GSM network. According to Giblet-dono, all you need to get started is:

3G JetStream
S-Off (get yours from HTCDev soon!)
Root (get yours from DoomLord)

That seems like a very short and easy list of pre-requisites. Based on the instructions, it seems just as easy as editing your build.prop file which doesn’t carry a whole lot of risk, so if this sounds like you’d like to try out then head on over to the original thread for the full instructions.

Additionally, Giblet-dono is also working on making messaging work and the up-to-date troubleshooting for it is going on right now in the same thread. It won’t be long until you can use your Jetstream as a fully functional phone. A very large, very awesome phone.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
