HBOOT for HTC Desire Now Available

Desire-Brown_Front+Back+Left20100212

XDA member ieftm and team has managed to develop an HBOOT image which disables NAND protection on the HTC Desire. This unlocks the /system and /recovery partitions, and allows for unsigned ZIP files to be installed, among a few other things. So, it basically allows for more development for the Desire. Please make sure to follow all instructions carefully, for there is a chance of bricking your device.

XDA member wuguohui109 comes bearing gifts as the dev has found a new leak for the Desire rom. Over the last week, we have had numerous spottings of this new and improved version of Froyo, which includes goodies such as an improved version of Sense.

Tweak the Automatic Brightness Levels on your Desire

htc-desire-three

If you are running CyanogenMod on your HTC Desire and find the light sensor not automatically adjusting the brightness levels to your satisfaction, you can try applying this enhancement tweak.

XDA forum member sfjuocekr has been tweaking the settings for CyanogenMod on the Desire and has helpfully posted the new settings in the HTC Desire General forum.

Settings that can be adjusted includes the window length where when you walk into light, a smaller window length helps increase your device brightness more quickly in combination with a smaller reset threshold.

For more information on the tweak and to discuss results, head on over to the forum thread.. . . READ ON »

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 »

Super LCD Screens to Hit Nexus One and Desire

htc-desire-slcd

In yet another turn of events, we learned in a thread started by XDA member Mokurex that HTC has announced that due to the short supply of AMOLED screens, they will be making a change in the production of devices. New batches of Nexus One and Desire will come equipped with SLCD (Super LCD) screens, according to Engadget. They claim that this switch will allow them to ramp up production rates to meet the demand from global markets.

The new panels will offer increased performance over traditional LCD displays, better color management, and most importantly, superior power management (better battery life).

HTC is experiencing high-demand for many of our phones, specifically our phones with 3.7 inch displays. T

Working Windows 95 Port for Android

win95

We have seen many ports of different kinds to all of our Windows Mobile devices, but what about porting a different OS to Android? XDA member and legend mamaich has brought us two emulators for Android devices, which will allow Android users to boot Windows 95. Both QEMU and BOSCH are widely popular amongst the people who know how to use them, as they have been used in other projects to run different Windows versions in other devices.

While the project runs smoothly, there are improvements to be made. Unfortunately, mamaich mentioned that he will not continue development of these ports. However, he has shared all the sources and knowledge required for anyone with the right skills to pick up where he left off. Among . . . READ ON »

New Nexus One Radio Leaked from Korean ROM

froyoradionexusone

Although the leaked Korean ROM doesn’t differ much from the standard FRF91 Froyo version, it does contain a new radio. This radio, version 32.41.00.32U_5.08.00.04, has been ripped from the original Korean ROM and is now available on the Nexus One forums, posted by XDA member G0belet. It might offer some new development possibilities for the HTC Desire as well. The new radio, which was also discovered in the Desire Froyo leak, could make it possible to hack the HTC Desire’s camera to record 720p videos, because the drivers in that specific radio are perfect for that. The 720p hack is already available on the Nexus One.

EspressoBar Sense UI Mod for the HTC Desire

Bar

If you’re bored with the standard HTC Sense design, XDA developer b1oh4zard created this little mod which replaces the original Sense UI bottom bar with the Espresso bar design. The layout stays the same, as you can see in the picture: Programs-Phone-New Widget. The small mod should work on any rooted HTC Desire with HTC Sense.
