HTC Hero Receives TWRP Port
The HTC Hero seems to be one of those HTC device that never completely loses it’s following. A few weeks ago, we reported on the HTC Hero receiving both Jelly Bean and Ice Cream Sandwich ports. To further back this up, we can report that the Hero has also received a TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) port. In fact two developers have thrown their hat into the ring.
XDA Recognized Contributor jordfaz has ported TWRP 188.8.131.52 to the Hero. The popular “touch” recovery has been on fire of late, being ported to a large number of devices. The only stand out issue with this particular port is that the “reboot to recovery” option from the ROM doesn’t work. Everything else is working as it should. XDA Senior Member kemoba has ported a more recent version of TWRP, 184.108.40.206 to the Hero. At the time of writing, only a couple of very minor issues exists:
- When installing ROM or making backup if text goes over screen recovery doesn’t go into new line
- Formatting takes ages, if you don’t want to wait go to settings and check use rm -rf instead of format, it should give you the same effect
In the good old XDA way, both jordfaz and kemoba are working together on fixing a number of minor issues for future releases.
If you want to get the ever popular TWRP on your Hero, check out jordfaz’s thread or kemoba’s thread.

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far... Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
