POSTS TAGGED: HTC EVO 3D
Posted September 21, 2012 at 06:00 am by Haroon Q. Raja
Ever since its launch, the HTC Evo 3D has garnered an impressive fan following in the developer community. From its initial temp root to the first stable perma-temp root, from the AlphaRevX S-OFF to the engineering bootloader, from the official bootloader unlock to bootloader customization, we have kept you up to date with the developments for this device here on the XDA Portal. While permanent root and full S-OFF have long been possible, they are spread across multiple guides. Today, we are bringing you what its author calls QUADERSO: Quick and Dirty EVO 3D Root and S-OFF.

For those of us who own an HTC EVO 3D, we tend to be hit, from time to time, with questions about our investments. Questions like, “why did Sprint take over a year to release something that was ready to go way before?” or “Will we be getting JB like the other devices that are getting it?” However, a question that more often than not plagues my mind as an owner of this device is, “Where else can I use the 3D display?” Being able to watch a few movies and play certain games in 3D is cool, but there should certainly be other things that can be done to take advantage of the panel technology—like a 3D interface, 3D wallpaper, and so on.
If you are thinking about these possible uses and m. . . READ ON »

It’s always good to see newer software gets ported to older devices with enough functionality to actually use. It can add new life to older devices and make them more tolerable for at least a little bit longer. Now, the HTC EVO 3D has a working Sense 4.1 port, and it comes not long after the official update to Ice Cream Sandwich.
XDA Senior Member chubbzlou is credited for having created the original port of the Sense 4.1 ROM to the device. From there, XDA Senior Member gruesomewolf turned it into a mean, lean, and mostly functional ROM. So far, the ROM seems to be very stable and usable as a daily driver. There are, however, some issues that still need to be worked out. The current issues include:

Users of the HTC EVO 3D have been rather lucky lately. Despite HTC withholding the Ice Cream Sandwich update and kernel source code until the very last second (and indeed until the next iteration of Android, 4.1 ‘Jelly Bean’, began landing on other devices) clever developers and a dedicated community of ROM cooks have managed to keep the seemingly abandoned device on the bleeding edge. Those of you who have held on to this 4.3 inch, glasses-free 3D, dual-core device, even as HTC shifted it’s attention to the new EVO 4G LTE and away from its dedicated EVO 3D community, can now give themselves a pat on the back. A plethora of Jelly Bean ports are arriving on the handset, even with the blatant lack of . . . READ ON »

Dual booting can be a lot of fun. Having one custom ROM to do with as you please is great. But when you have two custom ROMs to do with what you want, the possibilities are even greater. Having multiple configurations allows users to have more versatility in how they set up their ROMs. For instance, a user can set up one ROM with just emails for work and have the other ROM available with games and social media for play. Now, the CDMA and GSM HTC EVO 3D can dual boot.
The process is similar to performing the task on other devices. It requires downloading Boot Manager and setting everything up from there. The guide was posted by XDA Senior Member gav-collins1983. In essence, users download the ROMs they want and install the. . . READ ON »

Very recently, we brought you news that the EVO 3D finally got an update to Ice Cream Sandwich. However, as Member Advocate Admin egzthunder1 stated in his article linked above, the update is far from satisfactory. Most reports agree that the update felt more like a consolation prize and less like something Sprint and HTC worked hard on. While ROM developers have been releasing stuff that is on par—and in many cases much better—than what Sprint and HTC released, those who want to stay true to stock do have some options as older mods have become available for the HTC EVO 3D.

As more devices come with multiple CPU cores, multi core-friendly CPU tweaking applications and modifications have shown up extensively in recent months. Now, there is an application to control the GPU and both CPU cores on the GSM HTC EVO 3D, as well as modify many other settings.
The application already has a number of features, but it is still under construction. Features that are currently working include:
Full CPU controll(single and dual-core devices)
Changing buttons backlight
Quickly force both cores online
Completly disabling second core

So after months and months of waiting, kicking, and screaming from the user base, Sprint has finally decided to provide their EVO 3D customers with a brand spanking new base to play around with. The new official Sprint ROM (base number 2.89.651.2) has been fitted with ICS 4.0.3, Sense 3.6 (as promised), a new radio, HBOOT 1.58, and some new bits and pieces of firmware. As always, this is loaded (and I do mean loaded) with Sprint’s usual bloatware such as Sprint Zone, Nascar, and a few other unremovable (by regular means anyways) bits of Sprint love on the device. After all, nothing screams “we care about our customers” than the bundled Blockbuster app, embedded into the framework with an addit. . . READ ON »

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:
