Just about three months ago, we brought you news that the Team Win Recovery Project had received a massive update to version 2.1. April’s release largely heralded the start of a new age in recoveries—where one would no longer have to deal with cumbersome menus, instead interacting with a very user-friendly GUI.
It wasn’t simply about the GUI either. In addition to bringing an unrivaled level of UI polish, TWRP 2.1 offered users many advanced features such as update.zip queuing, a basic file manager, and dual storage support for Nandroid backups. Additionally, TWRP added support for the open source scripting engine OpenRecoveryScript, which works in conjunction with the pr. . . READ ON »

The march of Jelly Bean across XDA has reached a fevered pitch since it was first announced at Google I/O 2012. With a number of devices receiving a port of the new version of Android on the rise and more expected in the future now that Jelly Bean source was released, Jelly Bean has certainly hit with a splash. For Samsung Galaxy S II I9100 and HTC EVO 3D users, there isn’t an AOSP version of Jelly Bean yet. However, there is a SDK port users can check out to preview JB.
The Galaxy S II port is a little rough as expected for an alpha release but it does have a number of things working. The list includes:

The journey of ICS to the HTC EVO 3D has been long and interesting. We brought you news of the first ICS leak, the problems with the ICS leak, and the solution to the problems. The last leak was for the Virgin Mobile-branded device, which ultimately was the cause of many issues. This time, though, it’s legit.
XDA Forum Member AcerExtensa has posted a guide that for users with the German or unbranded versions of the device to obtain the official ICS OTA. What’s more, the OTA has been modified so that users don’t have to upgrade their HBoot, recovery, or radio before updating.
The process is in 3 stages. First, users download the OTA in the form of a flashable update.zip. It is noted that users should u. . . READ ON »

One of the most common questions here at XDA over the past several months has been, “When will my HTC device receive Ice Cream Sandwich?” Now, thanks to a tip from XDA Senior Member neoofoox we have our answer.
Although we previously mentioned the devices confirmed to get ICS from HTC’s blog back in March, it was only recently that HTC finally confirmed their timeline for this year’s releases. According to HTC:
What is the overall timeline of Android 4.0 updates?
The majority of devices will receive upgrades in June and July 2012 and we expect to finish upgrades in August 2012 for all announced devices.
When will my device get the Android 4.0 upgrade?

As our regular readers will tell you, we’ve been following the HTC EVO 3D closely. Not too long ago, it received an ICS leak and its associated problems. The leak wasn’t for the Sprint or GSM versions of the phone, but rather for the Virgin Mobile version of the phone, which hasn’t even been released yet. As you can imagine, early adopters who flashed the red hot leak had some serious problems—not least of which was being unable to revert back to factory firmware. Fortunately, those days have come to an end.

For owners of many HTC device such as the HTC Amaze 4G, EVO 3D, MyTouch 4G Slide, Sensation, and the Vivid/Raider/Velocity, this has been a long time coming. A fully functional method to restore a device from a full brick is a pretty big deal. This then gives users more confidence when performing potentially risky tasks such as HBoot updates, ROM flashes, or turning S On.
XDA Senior Member dexter93, along with a host of other developers, has finally released this project after several months of beta testing and waiting. This is great news for many HTC users who have bricked devices under certain circumstances, and is much better news for users who unintentionally—or even intentionally—brick thei. . . READ ON »

Whenever a device gets a new leak, some brave soul has to flash it and figure out what works and what doesn’t. In many cases, there isn’t much wrong but often, the software is incomplete and there’s the occasional force close or signal issue. However, on some leaks—especially ones that aren’t really intended for your device—there are more numerous issues.
Those carrying the HTC EVO 3D may have noticed that on Sense 4 leaks, the camera doesn’t exactly work. While camera functionality is commonly lacking in ICS leaks, you don’t have to suffer from for long. XDA Recognized Developer JoelZ9614 has provided a fix that will get the shutterbugs out there back i. . . READ ON »

With Ice Cream Sandwich quickly spreading across Android devices like wildfire right now, new drivers for the Adreno 220 GPU found in the Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 have surfaced. These drivers can potentially lead to improved 2D UI rendering performance in ICS and, of course, increased benchmark scores.
XDA Senior Member gjcamp has produced recovery-flashable update.zip files that work across multiple devices with this hardware. Every phone running the Adreno 220 from the HTC Evo 3D to a couple variants of the Samsung Galaxy S2 may be able to benefit from these drivers, and there are currently seven different devices for which gjcamp has created threads. In his words:
