HTC Sensation Is Now Unbrickable

[Update: This modification has been temporarily pulled because many people were damaging their devices by not following instructions. The modification will be reinstated when simpler instructions are developed.]

Often times, much development work centers around a few key devices. This core group of devices has historically included the legendary HTC HD2, the Desire HD, and lately the HTC Sensation, which was one of the first devices to receive a custom ROM loaded with Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 3.6.

The development work continues, as XDA Forum Member dexter93 lets us know about the alpha version of the Unbrickable tool for Sensation. This tool will help writesecureflag bricked devices and those phones that can achieve emmc_mode only few seconds, by using the Linux command dd to flash images into device.

The tool is in alpha state, so be extremely cautious if and when giving it a shot. It was designed to run it on Linux based computers only for now. It will also help those devices having QHSUSB_DLOAD issues. The developer is making an invitation for testers to contact him, so the tool can move forwards. In the words of the developer:

We are proud to announce that the sensation is now UNbrickable. Users with the QHSUSB_DLOAD issue can now fully recover their phones and get them fully functional.

Note: after consideration we decided not to post instructions here, as this is still developer preview and certainly not noob friendly. We do need testers though. If you’d like to be part of this, post inside or find us on irc. You need a linux box to be part of this and basic knowledge of it

IRC is now up! everyone get on freenode.net , channel #unbrick
online browser client: http://webchat.freenode.net/
from mobile use AndChat

I repeat this is still alpha. noobs stay away

Continue on to the original thread to learn more, and make sure to stop by this post for a full breakdown on the procedure. This may be just the tool you’ll need to resuscitate your seemingly dead Sensation in the future!

OnePlus Plans To Take Back #NeverSettle From Verizon

#NeverSettle Back in 2014, this seemingly innocent and kind of motivating hashtag took the tech industry by storm. Afterall, how often do you see a "new" company give the top guns of Android a run for their money? The #NeverSettle mantra was what OnePlus was founded on, as they claim. Even though the device was marred with issues and criticism ranging from its invite-system method of sale, to its rather infamous customer service and quite recently, its attempts to acknowledge and...

OnePlus Two: Expectations and Boundaries

OnePlus is a company that has been through controversies and praise in what was perhaps one of the most dynamic years for a company - and all of this with a single phone. The OnePlus One was, indeed, flagship killer that didn’t settle in many ways. The device went on to sell over a million units - an impressive number considering the invite system meant limited sales and that its advertising was mostly word-of-mouth.   OnePlus made it clear that their...

In this video, XDA TV Producer TK reviews ChronoSnap. TK shows off the...
