SuperCID for the HTC Amaze 4G and HTC Rezound

With the recent and not-so-tragic death of S-On for many HTC Devices, quite a bit of development has been underway for the newly freed devices. In essence, they seem to have gotten a development second wind, such as the recent ENG HBoot for the Rezound. Basically, there are now more devices having more development fun. Because of this, the HTC Amaze 4G and the HTC Rezound have SuperCID.

XDA Senior Member electronicrice and XDA Forum Member jefffeely have posted methods to get SuperCID on the Amaze and Rezound, respectively. What are the benefits of this? Well, electornicrice outlines one of the major benefits:

Basically, having SuperCID allows you to flash any ROM, regardless of which carrier it is for. Pretty handy if you have your phone SIM unlocked and wanted to use your Amaze on Wind Mobile or something.

The process itself only requires users to have access to Fastboot commands on their computers. From there, it’s a few terminal commands, and before you know it, you can flash pretty much anything you want. There’s also a process that will help you revert back to whichever CID you need.

Additionally, for HTC Amaze 4G users, XDA Senior Member benjamminzIS has created two automated scripts to do this for you, if you don’t feel comfortable enough with ADB to do it yourself. One gives you SuperCID, and the other reverts you to the stock T-Mobile CID. While Rezound owners are “stuck” with the manual entry method for now, it’s really not that difficult.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
