The Weekly Q&A: Week 47

QA-img2

As part of our regular Q&A session here on the XDA-Developers Portal, I’ll be covering some questions and issues frequently seen here in the world of XDA. This week, we’ll concentrate on everyone’s favorite large-screened devices–Honeycomb-powered tablets!

Q: Is it possible to turn the a500 display off when connecting to a TV using HDMI out? If you try to lock the device (hit the power button), it halts the device completely. There is not brightness option for “completely off,” so that’s not an option. Ideally, I’d like to save battery if I’m watching a movie via HDMI. Does this require a 3rd party app, if so, do you know of any? [Question . . . READ ON »

AlphaRev X Public Beta Brings Tasty S-Off Action to the HTC Wildfire

alpharevx

Are you an HTC Wildfire user dying for some tasty S-Off action?  Luckily AlphaRev X, which is intended on achieving exactly that, has just entered public beta.

Starting with an issue he faced himself, XDA forum member dannyjmcguinness has created a support thread regarding the public beta. Obtaining S-Off is a rather large milestone, as it allows custom kernels and ROMs to be flashed without any issue. Additionally, files in the /system partition can be modified while the device is powered on, enabling programs like MetaMorph to work as expected. Essentially, achieving S-Off makes the device truly yours.

If this tickles your fancy, please continue on to the support thread and grab a copy of the public bet. . . READ ON »

Luckily, it seems that Acer Iconia owners will have some hope to find a middle ground thanks to the efforts of XDA member Dexter_nlb. Apparently, after quite a bit of trial and error and lots of testing, he was able to get a few Huawei 3G USB dongles to fully work with the Iconia A500. I. . . READ ON »
