HTC Peep Security Update for Windows Mobile

A few days ago we published an article on the Portal regarding HTC Peep Vulnerability. Well, today we have an update thanks to XDA member cajunflavoredbob who posted a series of .cabs. The developer pulled files apart and recompiled again with the help of XDA member JVH3 changing the way the Twitter Tab (HTC Peep) authenticates your user account. They should work on Windows Mobile 6.5, 6.5.x, and perhaps also on 6.1 but you need to have Sense 2.5 on your device to make it work. The developer mentions that the 4 files contained on the original thread are more or less the same, so you may want to try several to see which one works better for you. Remember that these cabs could harm your device, so be sure to know what you are doing before proceeding.

Peep Update *.cabs

After pulling them apart and recompiling them, with the help of JVH3, here are the HTC Peep Update *.cabs. These are for Windows Mobile users with version 6.5 or higher. It should work, in theory with version 6.1, but I didn’t feel like testing it out. Obviously, you’ll need Sense 2.5 as well. There are four versions, but they all seem to be exactly the same. I didn’t notice any differences other than the dates they were packaged. The Rhodium version seemed to have a slightly smaller TwitterApp.exe file, but I still don’t think it was different.

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. This leads to the assumption...
