How to Restore HTC Location and Footprints on the Rezound

There is nothing quite like flashing a new ROM and finding out one of your favorite applications didn’t make the cut. Usually, this is no big deal, as it’s a matter of installing the application or, at worst, dropping an application into /system/app with a root file manager and modifying permissions. Sometimes, though, the application requires a little more than that—namely the inclusion of libraries. This often happens with proprietary HTC applications. For HTC Rezound owners, there is now a short guide to help get HTC Location and HTC Footprints back onto any ROM has them removed.

The short tutorial, written by XDA Forum Member Budderz, is also a practical guide for restoring any application that requires additional libraries. For HTC Locations and HTC Footprints, users simply need to download the libraries and program files provided by Budderz. Then, users move the apps into /system/app using their favorite root explorer. From there, they then have to move the libraries into /system/lib.

To get started and download the required files, check out the original thread.

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.
