HTC EVO 3D

Not too long ago, we brought you coverage of the HTC EVO 3D HBoot downgrade, which allowed users to finally rid themselves of HBoot 1.5 and achieve true s-off status. And as expected, it’s taken off like wildfire. Since then, users and developers alike have breathed new life into the HTC EVO 3D forums, as now users can do whatever they want to their phones.

However, there are still some out there who just aren’t as comfortable as they’d like, and haven’t gone through with the somewhat difficult procedure. While the concept of overly simplified tools is a hot topic here, there are some who believe that simplified tools are useful and even preferred over longer, potentially riskier sol. . . READ ON »

Misctool Gives HTC Users Power to Read/Write Main Version

HTC Rezound

HTC users occasionally have to use some interesting methods to flash what they want onto newer devices.

HTC EVO 3D GSM, HBOOT Downgrade!

S-OFF. Those five characters represent the world to power users. They represent the ability to do whatever you want, whenever you want, without the OEM holding you down.

For many a GSM EVO 3D user, those few characters seemed unattainable. HTC had locked the HBOOT and downgrading seemed impossible. As the months passed, hope seemed lost…

Fortunately for them, a clever chap by the name of navrasis refused to give in. After much research he cracked the code, err…blocks in this case. You see with a little creativity (and a hex editor) he managed to beat the system. See for yourself here.
