As we’ve stated in the past, one of the highlights of the Android OS is how it allows you to customize almost every aspect to your every whim. Often times, however, you wish to change more than the superficial by delving into the world of radio, bootloader, recovery, and splash screen modification. Assuming you have already achieved S-Off status on your device, XDA forum member danward brings us the perfect tool for your hacking needs.
Assuming you have USB debugging enabled and have the appropriate hboot drivers installed, Android Flasher allows you to flash these previously difficult-to-flash areas in just a couple of clicks. The Windows-based app currently works on the following HTC phones: D. . . READ ON »

One of the most important tools that any Android flashing addict must have is a reliable, good, and feature rich recovery image on their devices. This wonderful creation allows you to perform things like flashing, cleaning, partitioning of your card, more flashing, connect via USB to the pc, and so much more. Having the best one is always a tough ordeal as it takes testing of features and tons patience. Well, if you are a Desire Z or G2 owner, your search maybe over because XDA member madmaxx82 brings you 4EXT. This recovery will allow you to do a lot of things that you will not be able to do with other recovery images, including theming it (in case you are not satisfied with the regular black background and stock colo. . .

Good day for all of us waiting for Sense 3.0 to be already on our screens! XDA members capychimp and rmk40 got the first 100% working ROM´s for HTC Desire HD and Desire Z, including their variants the Inspire 4G and G2. The weather animations are working smooth and general performance is quite good -tested on Inspire 4G- but as any first version some stuff must be modified to make it work even better.
Remember to fully read the instructions before you start, it´s a delicate process.
Please leave your feedback.

Some members like to go deeper when personalizing their devices, even further than just software. XDA member znanoDA took a step into personalizing the body of the device itself, making a chrome polished finish for the battery cover of the G2. All started because the plastic layer started to peel, which is a problem many will be familiar with. After noticing this, he decided to use sand paper to get rid of the plastic. The finished work looked nice and shiny. The original poster mentions that he used the following materials:
- Automotive Wet/Dry sand paper
- 400-600-800-1000-1500-and finally 2000 grit
Be aware that the only responsible for making this will be you, so proceed with caution. If you have another metho. . . READ ON »

Personally, we think the HTC Sense softkeybar – or dock, whatever you want to call it – hasn’t been organized well enough. It consists of the programs button, the phone launcher and the personalize button. Although it looks good, there are a few things that could have been designed better. The phone button is really too big. We understand that it’s an important launcher, but this is just too much. In fact, there could easily be four buttons instead of three, allowing for a better user experience. Moreover, the Personalize button is completely useless: you can bring it up using the menu button or by a simple tap-and-hold on the home screen.
Four customizable buttons, that can be assigne. . . READ ON »

After some research, developers discovered that the custom ROMs for the Desire Z were able to run on the T-Mobile G2, and vice-versa. The hardware of both devices is almost identical. XDA member steviewevie suggested svetius (the user experience admin) about this and he decided to merge the forums soon.
This means that developers won’t have to start different threads for both phones – making everything just a bit easier for everyone:

We all know how annoying it is to have to press the power button in order to wake your device, especially when your device sports a trackpad.
Well, HTC Desire Z owners can rejoice since you now have a trackpad wake tweak to solve this problem.
XDA forum member JupiterDroid has posted instructions on how to install the tweak, which is based originally off another tweak in the HTC Vision (G2) forum.
You will need root access on your device – preferably permanent root, else the tweak will not persist on subsequent reboots and the tweak will need to be reapplied. The tweak also requires GScript Lite, which is available free in the Market.

All Desire Z owners have been cranking out roms, mods, and more over the past couple of weeks. One of the most popular ones out there is undoubtedly CyanogenMod. However, applying this to your device has a small consequence, you will lose Swype. What is more, since Swype can only be used by officially licensed devices, you will not find swype apks floating around XDA. XDA member oldsk00lz has figured out a method to install CyanogenMod and keep Swype. Not only that, but the dev has also made an app to make the process easier for all users.
If you are interested in this, make sure you drop by the thread and leave some feedback for the dev as well.

If you were like me, you rushed right into installing CyanogenMod. Whoop
