POSTS TAGGED: HTC EVO 4G LTE

HTC Sense 6 from the M8 Ported to the Evo 4G LTE

Screenshot-2_zpsf3f6846f

A few days ago, we talked about a leaked document showing HTC’s tentative software update schedule for various devices. Unfortunately, the picture for the two-year-old  is relatively bleak. The Evo 4G LTE isn’t scheduled to receive an update to Sense 6, and no information is available about a future update to KitKat. However, the lack of official updates never stopped the aftermarket development community.

Recognized Developer Sinistertensai and Recognized Contributor chubbzlou took it upon themselves to get HTC Sense 6 working on the aging Evo 4G LTE. The ROM itself is a port of the HTC One (2014) M8, and as such, it also packs Android 4.4.2. Currently, it. . . READ ON »

Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE Finally Receives Official Android 4.3 and Sense 5 Update via RUU!

evo 4g lte

Some say that a device just now receiving Android 4.3 is rather late to the party, and that most users here much prefer AOSP-derived SENSE-less ROMs—and they just might be right. All we know is, it’s called the Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE. Forgive me, as perhaps I’ve been watching too much TopGear.

Getting back to the point of this story, another device has just now entered the Android 4.3 fray, and it’s Sprint’s take on the popular One X: the HTC EVO 4G LTE. The update was shared by HTC VP Martin Fichter on Twitter earlier today, and it is not available via traditional methods. Rather than coming in the form of an OTA update, the firmware is delivered via a side loadable RUU that will comple. . . READ ON »

Activate NFC at Any Time

one-touch-sharing-544x504-62a5b85717e529e98cf5b4c492f4aea0-460x426

One of the biggest gripes we have with our NFC-enabled devices is the somewhat unnecessary requirement of having to unlock them in order to activate NFC. This requirement effectively reduces the practicality of our many enabled stickers, tags, and gadgets, as it leads to another inconvenient step that limits the use of NFC in the first place.

There is good news, though, as a couple of good folks here have created mods that allows for NFC activation when the device’s screen is off or at the lock screen. This has been made possible by XDA Senior Member StephanSch for the following devices:

This mod is also av. . . READ ON »

EVO 4G LTE Owners: Get Your Official JB Update Now

evo4glte

If all rumors were true, we would likely be living with aliens, and Elvis would likely be alive and kicking back in his cozy shack in Las Vegas while sipping, well, virtually everything in front of him. That said, rumors have a tendency to give us a bad aftertaste since they normally tend to not be true, which is a very nice slap back into reality. However, when they are true, it normally takes a second or two to sink in, but we tend to jump with joy shortly thereafter.

XDA Forum Member 27s started a thread earlier today based on a story posted by AndroidPolice that stated, with a screenshot of unconfirmed and unknown origin, that Jelly Bean would be rolling out to the HTC EVO 4G LTE sometime today.

HTC EVO 4G LTE Gets Jelly Bean Sense 4.5 Port

htcevoltesense45

When dealing with AOSP-based ROMs, users and developers don’t really find themselves waiting for the next release of Android. In the case of OEM skins, they don’t have to wait for the next version either. For some time, the biggest issue facing the HTC EVO 4G LTE was unlocking the bootloader. With that accomplished, developers are now back to making sure they have the newest firmwares available. Now, there is a port of Jelly Bean with a dash of Sense 4.5.

XDA Senior Member chubbzlou released an early alpha build of Jelly Bean with Sense 4.5 for the EVO LTE. As the word “alpha” implies, it’s pretty rough around the edges. Here is the list of things not currently working:

Team Win Recovery Project Updated to 2.3

TWRP

The last time we brought you news about TWRP, it was to announce that TWRP 2.2.2 had been released. It had fixed a lot of bugs from the initial release of TWRP 2.2 and added a few new features. Very recently, TWRP has been updated again to version 2.3.

There were a whole bunch of awesome improvements with TWRP 2.2 and a lot of unique and brand new features as well. TWRP 2.3 promises no less. The official change log includes:

Rebased onto AOSP Jelly Bean source code
Rewrote backup, restore, wipe, and mount code in C++ classes for easier maintenance going forward
NOTE: backups from prior versions of TWRP are still compatible with 2.3
ADB sideload functionality from AOSP is included in 2.3, see this link for more info

Increased Sense 4 Multitasking and 16 Recent App Panels for EVO 4G LTE

evo-4g-lte-sprint

We’ve brought you multitasking tweaks before. While most of them involve simply editing minfree values to a more desirable number, the main difference has been the ease of doing so. Until now, that is. A new multitasking tweak has been discovered specifically for Sense 4.0 and Sense 4.1 ROMs on the HTC EVO 4G LTE.

XDA Recognized Developer zeppelinrox found the first tweak for the Sense 4.0/4.1. And now, it doesn’t involve just minfree tweaks. Before the tweak, the app limit for Sense ROMs was a mere 8 applications. After the tweak, it can go as high as 50. If that’s too much, zeppelinrox suggets using one of the many methods to tweak minfrees to rectify the problem. The tradeoff is that a hig. . . READ ON »
