Not too long ago, we brought you news of an all in one tool kit for a variety of devices that delivered permanent root, unlocked the bootloader, installed a custom recovery, and batched installed apk files. There was, however, one thing missing—S-Off. At the time of its release, S-Off was still a dream for many of these devices, but it has since become a reality. HTC Amaze 4G, Vivid, Rezound and MyTouch 4G Slide owners can now enjoy S-Off easily thanks to a new tool kit.
XDA Recognized Developer hasoon2000 has released another decent sized batch of tool kits for HTC devices with the sole purpose of obtaining S-Off easily on the aforementioned HTC devices. Of course, from there you can use the all-in-. . . READ ON »

One of the most common questions here at XDA over the past several months has been, “When will my HTC device receive Ice Cream Sandwich?” Now, thanks to a tip from XDA Senior Member neoofoox we have our answer.
Although we previously mentioned the devices confirmed to get ICS from HTC’s blog back in March, it was only recently that HTC finally confirmed their timeline for this year’s releases. According to HTC:
What is the overall timeline of Android 4.0 updates?
The majority of devices will receive upgrades in June and July 2012 and we expect to finish upgrades in August 2012 for all announced devices.
When will my device get the Android 4.0 upgrade?

Looks like Sense 4.0 keeps going down the 2011 line of devices, filling these devices with new life and a sense of continuity thanks to the wonderful work of some of our developers. The latest case took place earlier on Sunday as XDA Recognized Developer sportsstar89 and his colleagues at Team Nightmare felt confident enough on their work to release it into the wild, granting the Amaze 4G users the option of adding yet another port to their arsenal of ROMs and options.
The ROM in question, much like with other early Sense 4 releases, has very few working features and most of them are nowhere near enough to be considered daily drivers—at least for the early ports that we have covered in their alpha states. A. . . READ ON »

For owners of many HTC device such as the HTC Amaze 4G, EVO 3D, MyTouch 4G Slide, Sensation, and the Vivid/Raider/Velocity, this has been a long time coming. A fully functional method to restore a device from a full brick is a pretty big deal. This then gives users more confidence when performing potentially risky tasks such as HBoot updates, ROM flashes, or turning S On.
XDA Senior Member dexter93, along with a host of other developers, has finally released this project after several months of beta testing and waiting. This is great news for many HTC users who have bricked devices under certain circumstances, and is much better news for users who unintentionally—or even intentionally—brick thei. . . READ ON »

Tool kits are often one of the most useful things a user will ever download. They usually let users efficiently perform a variety of tasks including acquiring root, installing a custom recovery, and flashing various development work ranging from ROMs to kernels. In other words, it lowers the entry cost for new users, and allows even the more experienced users to enjoy easy flashing.
Now, thanks to XDA Recognized Developer hasoon2000, there are a variety of tool kits for many HTC devices. Currently supported devices include the HTC myTouch 4G Slide, HTC One S, HTC One X, HTC Amaze 4G, HTC Rezound, and the HTC Vivid.
For some users, this tool kit is not exactly a new experience. This is the tool was recently used in . . . READ ON »

Logic would dictate that our devices should survive thanks to their creators, and their continued existence would depend solely on their willingness to prolong it. If the aforementioned statement was in fact true, the creators (in this case the manufacturers) would release updates in a more timely manner. However, as we have seen time and time again, this is hardly ever the case, be it for quality assurance practices, carriers blocking the updates, etc.
Whatever the reason may be, we often find ourselves with devices that unfortunately do not make the manufacturers’ cut. That is, unless some brave soul would dare to go straight into the giant’s castle to retrieve this golden egg. The fairy tale . . . READ ON »

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:

HTC’s locking of the bootloaders during last year was nothing short of a spectacular feat. It was really a battle of the titans, where the original line-up of Sensation-like devices came with a locked bootloader, which was later unlocked and S-OFFed, only to be updated to yet another revision of the HBOOT. But the second time around, it was locked to an almost unlockable state. Having heard many complaints from the user base (and us), HTC decided to offer the olive branch and simply gave up on locking the HBOOT. In fact, they themselves provided a way to unlock this and allow the flashing of custom code on the devices (of course, your warranty flew out the window if you did). Several giants came along such as Re. . . READ ON »

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: touch-based recoveries are the future. Aside from giving end users easier access to device firmware modification, they add a much needed element of polish to the Android hacking experience. While some may say that these upgrade recoveries take away from the feelings of thrill and excitement, I argue that they offer a more efficient interface and enable some truly unique new features not available in the recoveries of yesteryear.
In a rather large update to what is arguably the most popular touch-based recovery around, XDA Recognized Developer Dees_Troy presents to us Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP, for short) version 2.1. Aside from simply b. . . READ ON »
