How to Remove HTCLinkify Easily

For the unaware, HTCLinkify is an application on some HTC devices implemented to  bypass a US Customs import ban. Essentially, it changes the way HTC phones handle alphanumeric entries on-devices.

Since then, developers and users alike have been dancing around whether or not to remove HTCLinkify. While it hasn’t been removed in many ROMs yet, many users have requested its removal. With that in mind, XDA Senior Member AshtonTS posted a simple guide for the HTC Rezound to completely remove HTCLinkify. As luck would have it, the guide is actually compatible with any HTC device with HTCLinkify.

The guide itself is simple. The first step is removing the HTCLinkify apk file using your favorite root explorer app. Then using your choice of build.prop editors, you remove a single entry in your build.prop. Finally, reboot into recovery to wipe Dalvik cache and /cache. HTCLinkify will be gone for good. Naturally, one must be rooted before proceeding. As mentioned, the process is universal so there’s no variance in doing with with any device plagued with HTCLinkify and, in fact, is pieced together using another method by XDA Forum Member iconeo for the EVO 4G LTE.

For the full instructions, head on over to the removal guide thread. To learn more about the removal process, head on over to the original thread by iconeo.

PhotoMath: A Math Beginner’s Dream App

To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...
