POSTS TAGGED: HTC Desire
Posted July 14, 2010 at 09:00 am by ElCondor
Browsing the forums, we came across this very nice HTC Sense theme by XDA member cubanaso. Inspired by GTX, the theme delivers a great clean look with nice white aesthetics. You need to flash it from Recovery, which means it will only work on rooted devices. Originally, Detox Desire was created for the HTC Desire by cubanaso, but XDA member USAsokr decided to make the theme compatible with the Droid Incredible. However, some changes have been made to the design, so the themes are not exactly the same.

First off, I want to thank for this great community that XDA has created. I also want to thank El Condor for his great work on the GTX theme it inspired me to create this theme. Thanks to t

The Samsung Galaxy S runs a custom program launcher by Samsung, which adds some extra functionality to the standard Android launcher. You can place 4 icons on the bottom of the home screen.
The icon on the right is the Applications icon. Pushing this button will show up the actual program launcher. You can scroll through the various programs by swiping left or right, just as you would do when you use the Android home interface.
Now, this launcher has been ported to the HTC Desire. XDA member inkredi reports about the mod, which should work on Froyo builds FRF72 and FRF83:

After the successful project of hacking the Nexus One camera software to let it record 720p videos, developers have started to work on a similar hack for other Android Snapdragon devices. Devices mentioned are the HTC Incredible and Desire. There are some developers active at Freenode, but now another developer and XDA member, charnsingh_online, has called for testers of his 720p hack.
This could mean that we can expect a release of this hack soon. But before we get there, there is a serious need of a bunch of testers that can help testing the hack and giving feedback. There are some requirements you have to meet to be able to try it out:

If you’re watching a video on your HTC Desire and you find the light from the hard keys on your Android device distracting, there is now a way for you to turn them off!
Originally requested by an XDA forum member, user mercianary has posted the solution. You’ll need to copy the command posted by mercianary to a text file on your SD card, save as a shell script and then run it on your Desire using GScript Lite (available free from the Market).
This method will create a new icon on your screen which will let you turn off the hard key button lights. The lights will return after certain events, for example, locking the screen.
Confirmed to be working for Android 2.1/2.2 (Eclair) only.

When his HTC Desire crashed, XDA forum member ChaosR discovered that his Android device had some extra LED colours. Aside from the known red, green and orange, ChaosR saw a flash of blue and purple!
He was able to replicate the bug once, and managed to get a snap of the purple to prove to fellow XDA members that he was not going crazy!
After stirring up some interest in the forum with the news of these extra colours, ChaosR has successfully coded a little Android app that can toggle and disable the blue LED.
Currently under testing, but confirmed to be working by various XDA members running Stock ROMs, ChaosR has mentioned that he is working on further developing his app to incorporate notifications.

If you have been drooling over the various FroYo delights such as Wi-Fi tethering that other XDA members have been enjoying since the Android 2.2 release, you’ll be pleased to find out that Wi-Fi tethering is now working for Eclair!
XDA forum member NordicZz, has posted that the clever devs working on the open source android-wifi-tether project have got the hack working on the HTC Desire and EVO 4G.
Root Eclair users should:
- Mount your SDCard
- Create a directory named ‘android.tether.
- Uninstall old versions of wireless_tether.
- Install the latest wireless_tether_2.0.2-pre release apk.

If you are one of the many XDA forum members frustrated with only being able to display your Desire lockscreen using the power on/off button, then good news await.
XDA forum member RedDragCZ has posted a little tweak, which allows you to force your device to assign another button such as the MENU button to show the lockscreen and what’s more, double tapping it unlocks the device!
You will need to use the Android Debug Bridge in recovery mode in order to have full rw access to the system partition to pull a copy of the /system/usr/keylayout/bravo-keypad.kl file, then edit according to RedDragCZ’s code and push it back to the same location.

Less than two weeks after the announcement of Froyo, the new version of Android that brings massively improved performance statistics, and the revamped OS is cropping up on many popular Android devices.
You’ve seen the ports for the G1 and the myTouch in this article, but now it’s the Desire’s turn for an unofficial taste of Froyo’s deliciousness. Being the Nexus One’s (only slightly) bigger brother in terms of hardware, porting it over was only a matter of time once the OTA update for the Nexus One was released.
Unlike with the other ports, the list of things that don’t work is already quite brief – just stay off Bluetooth and don’t use your camera and you s. . . READ ON »

Ever needed a little bit of light? Don’t carry a torch around with you? Thought you’d only ever use the LED on your phone for flash when taking photos? Think again!
If you want to make use of the LED on your HTC Desire, but don’t want to launch an application every time you want to turn on the light, XDA forum member f3d0r has started coding a widget collection – and one of them is a flashlight widget.
Instead of taking up space in your app drawer, BeamWidget sits nicely on one of your homescreens with a pretty icon to boot and all you need to do is toggle on – or toggle off.
Root is not required.
