Init.d Stapler for HTC EVO 4G Grants Init.d Support on ICS

For most devices, obtaining init.d support is no big deal. Usually, users need to only install a kernel or ROM that supports init.d, and then they can install any scripts requiring it. However, not all devices have such ROMs or kernels. Alternatively, some users may enjoy their current ROM/kernel setup and would rather not change it just to gain support. For HTC EVO 4G users on ICS, this may no longer be a problem.

The solution is called init.d Stapler. It’s a modification that EVO 4G users running an ICS ROM to gain init.d support in their ROM without having to swap ROMs or kernels. Developed by XDA Forum Member Mephistonian, the mod is easily flashable in custom recovery making init.d simple. As Mephistonian explains:

This is a flashable .zip file that will essentially inject (or staple as I like to say) the support of the INIT.D script into your current ICS rom. As I said above, this SHOULD (YMMV) allow the support of any tweaks that require the INIT.D script.

As with any mod, there is a possibility that it may not work for you. It has been confirmed working by a number of users, though, on a couple of different ROMs.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
