POSTS TAGGED: HTC Desire

If you own an HTC Desire running a rooted Android 2.3.5, you may have experienced issues with clearing or cancelling a missed call notification when using a third party dialer app, like XDA forum member manny73.
Because of the issues, the XDA forum member has developed a simple app that is configurable for checking missed call notifications and lunching a customisable notification with a reminder which returns to the default dialer. In order for this to work, the app must be installed under /system/app and your phone rebooted after install. The app was only tested on the HTC Desire running Android 2.3+ (rooted).

Well, it seems that the people/team behind Gingerbread really do not want to see this fantastic version of Android to be left behind and forgotten. Because of this, they decided to start rolling out what is likely to be one of the last updates to Gingerbread, Android 2.3.7. Several devices received OTAs being pushed in about a week and a half ago. Needless to say, between that time and now, roms of all sizes and colors have surfaced for a ton of devices across the site thanks to people like XDA member qbking77 who decided to pull out the update out of a friend’s device . Among them, we can see roms and updates to the new OS on the Nexus S, Nexus One, SGS2, and a few others.
There are already roms out from famous gr. . . READ ON »

There are plenty of iPhone looking skins out there for Android. This is for the kind of people that love to show how their Android devices can easily be turned into iPhone looking hardware and flaunting about how the inverse cannot be done. Well, if you are among these people and love to get functionality and smoothness, you should check out what XDA member amitmiz while browsing through the MIUI forums. Apparently, the member came across a rom for the Desire and the Legend, which includes enough apps to make it look and feel like an iPhone 4 right after flashing. It seems that due to popular demand, the creator of the apps decided to release them as standalone apps with no dependencies on a specific framework. Th. . . READ ON »

It seems that the aging HTC Desire aka Bravo still has a lot of fight left in it. Unless you are not following the mobile world, you probably have heard or seen the port of the HTC Bliss to other devices such as the Desire HD, the EVO 4G, and the HD2. It seems to be that this Sense 3.5 loaded Rom has been making its way into the hands of several other rather avid developers who roam our site. In this particular case, XDA Recognized Developer coolexe has successfully ported the Rom over to the Bravo, giving owners of this device a taste of the future technology that will be with us shortly. The rom works very well, much like it does in the other devices, but you gotta remember that it is still a rather early beta and as such, you wi. . . READ ON »

After the HTC EVO 4G, Nexus One, Desire HD and Incredible received a working port from the Android Honeycomb SDK, the HTC Desire joins the Honeycomb family too. With this software, your Desire won’t be more useful than a brick, the only good thing is that you can play with the interface and get a taste of how Honeycomb looks and works. It’s nice to play with, but it is far – and we mean really, really far – from stable. If you’re an Android developer and willing to support XDA developer coolexe with the Honeycomb port, any help would be very appreciated.

If you’ve been lusting after the HTC Desire HD and all the extra features it has, then you’ll be pleased to hear you can get one step closer with your HTC Desire, with the Desire HD input, recently posted by XDA forum member KennyDumah.
Note that this is just an extraction and not a port, so it won’t work on other devices. However, it should work on most ROM’s for the HTC Desire.
You can flash it via Recovery without wiping – although this only works with RCMix HD App2SD + v0.15. The alternative method is to unzip and install the HTC_IME.apk through adb with the install command.

Because of the low amount of available memory for user data, developers have been trying to enhance the way Android handles OS-specific data and applications. They do this by referring to the SD card instead of the main memory itself. This makes it possible to install many more applications. This hack is called app2SD, which is widely known by many Android users across various devices.
Now, XDA member ownhere has come up with something new: data2ext. What this hack basically does is changing some partition settings (loopback) to increase write performance and to saver power. Originally created for the HTC Desire, it delivers some huge improvements and it really is a must-have for the Desire. The benchmark sc. . . READ ON »
