POSTS TAGGED: HTC EVO 3D

Not too long ago, we brought you coverage of the HTC EVO 3D HBoot downgrade, which allowed users to finally rid themselves of HBoot 1.5 and achieve true s-off status. And as expected, it’s taken off like wildfire. Since then, users and developers alike have breathed new life into the HTC EVO 3D forums, as now users can do whatever they want to their phones.
However, there are still some out there who just aren’t as comfortable as they’d like, and haven’t gone through with the somewhat difficult procedure. While the concept of overly simplified tools is a hot topic here, there are some who believe that simplified tools are useful and even preferred over longer, potentially riskier sol. . . READ ON »

One of the most hands-on activities that anyone with a piece of equipment could do is to take it apart to peek at the insides. However, what could one possibly gain from doing such a thing? Well, aside from learning a bit about components, getting a clue as to how the devices actually work (and that they are in fact, not “magical” as some people will try to make you believe), and losing the overall fear of messing around with electronics, you may learn to spot what is wrong with your device. This is a very important skill if you always have devices with you and are prone to do things like bump them against tables, sit on them while having them on your back pocket, or throw them in the toilet/washing machine.

Every now and again, there are is a tweak, a mod or a tool that most users can’t imagine not having. Things like Theme Chooser on CyanogenMod or the Rosie re-map function for most HTC devices, some modifications are so useful that they become common place in ROM feature lists. This is the case with LeeDroid tweaks, a mod pack by XDA Recognized Developer j4n87 that has become so popular that most ROM devs have added the tweaks to their ROMs, and those who haven’t have been urged by their users to do so.
The modification, available for the HTC Sensation and both the GSM and CDMA flavors of the HTC EVO 3D, gives users an application that can apply a very large number of mods from the MIUI battery bar to removi. . . READ ON »

Not every aspect of an OEM skin is a wanted feature. Sometimes features—especially pointless features—are just annoying and a waste of processor power. Perhaps one of the best examples of this is the carousel animation on the HTC EVO 3D. For those who don’t know, a user can swype across the screen and if they do it too fast or too far, the home screens will spin in a carousel motion for two full revolutions and then land on the same home screen it started on. Annoying, right?
EVO 3D users can finally get rid of what is one of the most pointless features of the OEM skin. XDA Senior Member ozkaya has released a mod that will remove the carousel animation and return the phone to its proper working conditio. . . READ ON »

You may remember seeing an article that we published yesterday on the EVO 3D’s hboot downgrading. Well, XDA Recognized Developer Unknownforce, who has been extremely active in his own guide thread noticed a few things in his original guide, which lead to very few success stories on this front. In fact, other than maybe one or two people, no one was able to brick their devices to get them to the point of emmc mode (and yes, we do see the irony of a thread full of complains by people not being able to brick their devices). Yesterday night, he revised his guide and recorded a video of the step by step process that he used to achieve this amazing feat. The guide in its current state is much more complete, with more down. . . READ ON »

Porting ROMs from one Android device to another is usually pretty exciting. It gives users a chance to sample the goods of another device without throwing down $500 USD in order to actually buy the device. Plus, it’s always kind of cool to show your friends your phone running a completely different OEM skin or different version of an OEM skin. Bragging rights for the win, right?
XDA Senior Member the_plattypus has given flashaholics carrying the HTC EVO 3D something a little different to play with. It’s a mash up of a HTC View 4g ROM along with pieces of the EVO 3D ROM thrown in to help make things work. It’s a premise the_plattypus has used before with great results.
The ROM is pretty nice and the is. . . READ ON »

Earlier this week, the Sensation became immortal thanks to the work of XDA member dexter93. Basically, he found a way to make the device recognizable via an emmc tool while in bricked state, which allowed flashing any image to the device. Well, guess what? Thanks to the efforts of XDA Forum Member Unknownforce and several others, a similar method was ported over to the EVO 3D where they had been frantically trying to find a way to bypass the infamous HBOOT 1.5 S-ON security.
A little background on this or those of you new to the EVO 3D scene. Way back when, sometime last year the EVO 3D was deemed as one of the toughest nuts to crack in terms of being able to turn the device security from S-ON to S-OFF, which esse. . . READ ON »

The billion dollar question right now in the Android world is whether or not your device will receive Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. As they so humorously put it:
Few innovations have improved upon ice cream as much putting it between two cookies and making a sandwich. Which is why we all want Ice Cream Sandwich! Ok, that’s not the real reason, but we’re all excited about Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, coming to HTC.
While there is constant speculation as to which devices will be added to the ICS list, not very many firm answers are to be found. Luckily, HTC has just released a public statement as to which devices are slated to receive Google’s latest tasty treat.READ ON »

The HTC Sensation and HTC Evo 3D were recently treated to an eagerly anticipated Sense 4.0 port by Virtuous development team. These ports were based on the leaked HTC Endeavor RUU, meaning a lot of widgets and apps had to be resized, due to the difference in screen resolution between the two devices and the HTC Endeavor (now known as the HTC One X).
Today, on behalf of the Virtuous development team, Recognized Developer mdeejay brings us the first custom ROM for these two devices, based on the freshly leaked HTC One S Developer Preview RUU. Given the HTC Sensation/Evo 3D and HTC One S share the same screen resolution (540×960), no resizing of widgets or apps is required, meaning greater overall com. . . READ ON »
