Updated Adreno 220 ICS GPU Driver Speeds Up 2D Rendering

benchmark

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:

Problems with the EVO 3D ICS Leak Brings Warnings from Devs

No HTC

Not long ago we brought you great news of the EVO 3D receiving its first taste of ICS through a leaked firmware. Not even 24 hours after the leak, there were already a few developers making releases and repackaging the RUU as a flashable firmware update. It was rather comforting to see HTC showing their flagship phone from last year some love, and users were pretty happy as well. However, not everything is sunshine and kittens with the ICS leak, and now users are finding themselves in quite a pickle.

It was first documented in a question thread that many users looking to roll back to Gingerbread in order to regain some functionality. Apparently, many users suffered from decreased signal and had difficulty in mainta. . . READ ON »

HTC EVO 3D Gets First Taste of ICS via Leaked RUU

HTC ICS

With the recent and successful launch of the HTC One line, HTC has been due for something equally large on the software front for a bit now, and the ICS leak for the HTC EVO 3D suggests that the device should be getting an official release relatively soon. Hopefully, anyway.

The leaked ROM shows that HTC may still have some interest in their former flagship phone for Sprint, although given the difficulties in rolling out large updates, it is possible that we won’t see an official release until after the launch of the HTC EVO 4G LTE. XDA Recognized Developer dastin1015 has posted the RUU up for users to check out and, more importantly, for developers to get their hands on it to bring even more ICS goodness to the . . .

Closer to Perfection – One S Port for EVO 3D Gets Major Update

evo3dones

You may recall that not too long ago, we wrote an article about the first ever port of the HTC Endeavor (One S) for the EVO 3D, brought to you courtesy of XDA Recognized Developer TMartin. Well, as it turns out due to some time constraints on his end, the dev could not update the ROM as much as needed and thus, it never really took off from the pre-alpha state. That was until now because thanks to the generous donation of an EVO 3D, XDA Recognized Developer newtoroot has been brought into the game to help TMartin with the port.

In case you are not familiar, the HTC One S is one of the latest devices released by HTC, a variant of the One X, which comes loaded with ICS 4.0.3 as well as the all new Sense 4.0 interface. The appeal . . . READ ON »

Flash Any EVO Device to Page Plus Service

PagePlus

While it is still impossible (legally, anyhow) for users to transfer CDMA devices from one big provider to another (e.g. Sprint to Verizon), it is quite possible to switch from a big CDMA service provider to a smaller one. With tutorials on how to flash various CDMA devices to smaller carriers such as Boost or Virgin Mobile, users with CDMA devices may very well have more freedom than they initially assumed. For instance, owners of any of the HTC EVO devices, including the HTC EVO 3D, HTC EVO Shift 4G and the HTC EVO 4G can now flash their phones to a service provider named Page Plus.

XDA Senior Member Nevell has written a universal tutorial for all three devices that will get them off of Sprint’s network and on. . . READ ON »

Team Win Recovery Project Updated to 2.1

lockscreen

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: touch-based recoveries are the future. Aside from giving end users easier access to device firmware modification, they add a much needed element of polish to the Android hacking experience. While some may say that these upgrade recoveries take away from the feelings of thrill and excitement, I argue that they offer a more efficient interface and enable some truly unique new features not available in the recoveries of yesteryear.

In a rather large update to what is arguably the most popular touch-based recovery around, XDA Recognized Developer Dees_Troy presents to us Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP, for short) version 2.1. Aside from simply b. . . READ ON »

Sense 4 Locks and Clocks for EVO 3D

sense4lock

It seems that HTC has created quite a bit of hype recently with their release of the HTC One series and the recently introduced EVO 4G LTE (an One variant for Sprint). Despite there being some ports with functioning Sense 4 frameworks, the simplistic and cleaner look of Sense 4 is, at this point, just a long term objective for Sensation and EVO 3D owners. Much like it has been historically on XDA-Developers, the road to Sense ports is always long, but there are people who will jump to the occasion of trying to come up with “fixes” for the cravings of the masses.

XDA Forum Member Will972 has recently released a clone of the Sense 4 clock and lockscreen only available for the EVO 3D, and for certain ROMs . . . READ ON »

Ext4 Touch Recovery for the GSM EVO 3D

HTC EVO 3D GSM Recovery

Touch-based recoveries have been appearing all over the place over the last few months, but there have been some phones left out of the loop. For some devices, it’s because the test recoveries are in beta and aren’t bug free enough yet for the average user, and for others, there’s hardly any work being done at all. One day, we’ll all have touch-based recoveries because let’s face it, they’re just better when they work. Well, for the owners of the GSM HTC EVO 3D, your wait for touch recovery is now over. XDA Recognized Developer nickiberli brings us Ext4 UI with a fun user interface and a plethora of other features.

The interface looks really cool. And based on the extreme. . . READ ON »

Best Mods Compiled Into One for the HTC EVO 3D

HTC EVO 3D

The HTC EVO 3D development scene has been on fire since the release of the 1.5 HBoot downgrade method and the Live CD to make the process easier. With AOSP releases on the horizon and mods aplenty being released, it’s almost like the first few months of it having S-Off all over again. XDA Senior Member thesparky007 has taken the best of the newer generation of modifications and wrapped them up in a single, easy to flash update.zip for everyone.

The mod includes a number of fun little features that add not only functionality, but also bring a number of widely called for user preferences, including the recently released removal of the carousel animation. Additionally, the mod has scrolling wallpapers and f. . . READ ON »
