Dramatically Improve Droid Incredible Battery Life

Android Battery

Battery life on many Android devices has been a problem for quite some time. Although the hardware and software in Android has improved much in recent years, battery technology remains largely the same. While there are some rumors out of better batteries being developed and more energy efficient hardware, that isn’t stopped many Android users from living charge to charge.

For HTC Droid Incredible users, it doesn’t have to be that way. XDA Senior Member PureMotive has developed a mod that aims to give Incredible users significantly longer battery life, and so far, the user response has been very positive.

The mod, which is laid out line by line for developers to use in their ROMs, tweaks a very larg. . . READ ON »

Script To Allow WiFi With Radio Disabled

HTC-DROID-INCREDIBLE-Verizon

If you want to be able to disable the radio on your Droid Incredible whilst still allowing the use of WiFi without having to use airplane mode, XDA member CondemnedSoul has written a simple script to utilise the radio options command.

This is great for people who just upgraded and want to use their older device for an mp3 player with WiFi access. The XDA member wanted to make it to be run in init.d on startup but hadn’t successfully gotten it working and hence the script.

To run the script, you’ll need to download the script and place it somewhere on your SD card, download Script Manager from the Market.

For the full instructions, head on over to the forum thread.. . . READ ON »

The Weekly Q&A: Week 27

Q&A img

Every week, we select five questions and answers, found on the forums. Even though some of these questions and answers might not be of help for you, they might still be interesting to read.

Q ‘Why is the first test score in Quadrant always lower than the following ones ? ‘

A There’s no expert explanation to this fact, but we guess that it has got something to do with the OS keeping the processes and data in memory. It could also be the CPU that’s been revved up after the first test.

  • Q&A originally posted in the Droid Incredible General thread.

Q ‘How can I install apps on my Inspire 4G from the market that are blocked by AT&T?’

A The best way to avoid this is by installing

XDA ROM Report: the Sense HD Experience on your Phone

romreport

Many reviewers have been positive about the changes HTC made to its custom Android UI, HTC Sense. Especially the htcsense.com service, which offers many features to keep track of your lost or stolen phone, is well received. However, because HTC doesn’t update its older phones to have this new version of Sense – which is a bit odd in our opinion – you will have to buy either the Desire Z (Vision) or the Desire HD (Ace, we will be calling these devices by those names in this article). To solve this, some developers ported the ROM from one of those device to other phones. This means that you can enjoy all the goodies of the Sense HD on your own phone!

To make it easy for you, we’ve created a list w. . . READ ON »

Want to control your music without having to unlock your device? With this new mod by member ihtfp69, now you can. The mod not only offers music controls  (back, previous, play and pause ) but also enables the rotary unlock button and menu unlock for Sense. According to the developer, this is the first time this has been accomplished on Sense framework for Froyo.

The mod is only available for a few ROMs for the Droid Incredible, but we are expecting more compatibility soon. Other requirements are:

Save Videos as .mp4 Instead of .3gp on your Droid Incredible

Incredible-Camera-Power

For users having trouble with the .3gp extension of the video output of their HTC Droid Incredible, XDA member scuccia created a small mod which prevents the camera to convert the recorded video to 3gp. According to scuccia, the camera actually records in the well known mpeg-4 format, but converts it afterwards to 3gp. Since the mp4 format is supported by so many more programs, this hack could be pretty useful for users that face problems with playing the video.

Although, there are tons of converters available, you need to keep in mind that every conversion means data-loss. The quality of the videos is really going backwards that way. This hack actually saves one conversion step, because the camera software d. . . READ ON »
