Now You Can Use Your Flyer To Make Calls… With a BT Headset

Yesterday, we published an article about a major “oops” that was found on both the HTC Flyer and EVO View 4G, which essentially prevents you from using a Bluetooth headset to use it as a microphone. Well, it looks like our developers are not the type to sit and wait until a proper fix is released by the manufacturer, so the matters were once again picked up as projects by our members. In this particular case, XDA member clubtech decided that he wanted to have the phone functionality that is built in Android available on his Flyer, so he tweaked several parameters and after playing enough with them, he finally got Android to show the infamous calling icon. However, this tale of self improvement does not end here, because in his quest to make it even more functional, the dev has added the missing aforementioned functionality of BT headset to the device. Moreover, the dev has provided us with a very clear set of instructions on how to achieve this. The only pre-requisites for this are that you are S-OFF and rooted. The S-OFF is of utmost importance due to the settings reverting back if you are just temp rooted.

Please leave some feedback for the dev if you think this worked well.

Tested on a 3G UK unlocked flyer using an AT&T SIM.

You can find more information in the original thread.
