Bootloader Customization Now Open to More S-Off HTC Devices

Bootloader Customizer

Not too long ago, we brought you news that allowed HTC EVO 4G LTE users to customize their bootloaders. The process was pretty cool, allowing users to make their bootloader look however they want—including making it look unhacked. After the initial project was released, users clamored for this to be made available to more devices. The requests were heard and responded to. Now, the plugin has been made available to make the bootloader customizer for a number of HTC devices.

The process for a developer to port this is not hard. XDA Recognized Contributor regaw_leinad, who developed the application and plugin, takes a time out from the stags (yes, that’s really him) to explain how:

Avoid Windows Driver Issues When Rooting: Use Pre-Installed Ubuntu LiveCD

UbuntuLogo

Many people face several problems with their Windows drivers when rooting their Android devices. Incompatible driver issues often cause problems flashing Android to the phones, or running rooting software.
To avoid this, some people use Ubuntu — for the people that don’t know it, Ubuntu is a Linux-based open-source operating system for your PC. Since Android is also based on Linux, the communication between these systems is a lot better. However, for the average Android user who has not much knowledge of ADB procedures and recovery installers, it is quite hard to root the phone using Ubuntu.

XDA member shad0wf0x solved this problem. He managed to create a ready-to-burn CD image, which includ. . . READ ON »

How-To: Wireless Tether for Rooted HTC Aria

android-wireless-tether-for-root-users-screenshots

A new (unofficial) version of Wireless Tether has been released. This version is confirmed to be working properly on the HTC Aria — other versions weren’t successfully connecting to the internet. XDA member attn1 reported about the update, which was originally created for the Desire and Incredible. He refers to Harald Mueller, who seems to be the creator of the update. As most information is all scattered around the forums, we thought it would be better to post a little how-to here. Credits go to XDA members attn1, acedj123 for extracting the .bin, hashbrown, breakeven and the original developers.

Guide

  1. Install wireless_tether_2_0_5-pre3.apk using adb install, HTC Sync or from SD card

Install Non-Market Apps (Unsupported Resources) on HTC Aria

android

The Android OS has a certification feature that prevents you from installing unauthorized applications on it. However, XDA member fluffyarmada found a workaround to avoid the certification procedure, which allows you to install any non-market application directly from your SD-Card. Unfortunately, the workaround is pretty difficult, and you will need to have some serious Android skills in order to be able to do it. Your device needs to be rooted to get this working.

If you update the “/data/data/com.android.providers.settings/databases/settings.db” file so that “install_non_market_apps” = 1 instead of 0, you will be able to install n
