POSTS TAGGED: HTC EVO 4G LTE

Enable WiFi Hotspot and USB / Bluetooth Tethering on the EVO 4G LTE

evounlock

The brand new EVO 4G LTE is the latest offering by HTC in the EVO line. It stands to reason that one of the most useful and sought-after mods for the EVO line of devices would show up sooner or later. With a simple build.prop edit (or a conveniently flashable update.zip, thanks to XDA Senior Member smw6180) you can now enable native USB and Bluetooth network tethering, as well as unlock the native WiFi hotspot on your device.

The edit was discovered to work with the new EVO 4G LTE build.prop by XDA Recognized Developer aamikam, and arrived in our community via Senior Member kaos420. Curiously enough, the mod ADDS a line to your build.prop that previously was found on the original EVO 4G, which works on the new EVO . . .

Easily Reboot Your USB Connected Android Device

RegawMOD-230x230

Android development on Windows is far from ideal. However, thanks to new tools and utilities, many developers are finding ways to develop for Android with less strife.

We’ve previously covered tools by XDA Senior Member regaw_leinad aimed at helping Android developers running Windows. First came the androlib.dll library, which allowed Windows to more easily communicate with Android devices. Using this library, regaw_leinad had developed quite a number of other tools, including the newest root method for the HTC Hero CDMA and the root method for the HTC EVO 4G LTE.

While the androlib.dll library is for anyone developing on Android, the tools made from it thus far have been device specific. However. . . READ ON »

HTC EVO 4G LTE Google Wallet Activation Issue Workaround

Google Wallet

XDA is most known for the development in the form of modifications and ROMs in every size and shape for dozens of devices that often dramatically alter the overall user experience. Often, however, our developers fix issues that are even present in stock software builds.

This is the case for the newly released HTC EVO 4G LTE. The issue? Google Wallet has proven difficult to activate and allow users to make purchases. Thankfully, this problem has now been fixed.

The fix is quite simple. First noted by XDA Forum Member jkt97401, users must modify the build.prop to identify as the Sprint Galaxy Nexus. Then, simply uninstall and re-install Google Wallet, or wipe its application data.

Learn to Add Your Own Picture in Notification Drop Down

NOtification Background

Here at XDA, we not only encourage people to develop new things, but we also try to promote users learning how to develop. With tutorials out there ranging from compiling from source to creating applications and even some advice from one of the greatest ROM developers out there, XDA is not only a place for developers to release their amazing work, but a place for users to learn how to create their own amazing work as well.

How to Remove HTCLinkify Easily

htc rezound

For the unaware, HTCLinkify is an application on some HTC devices implemented to  bypass a US Customs import ban. Essentially, it changes the way HTC phones handle alphanumeric entries on-devices.

Since then, developers and users alike have been dancing around whether or not to remove HTCLinkify. While it hasn’t been removed in many ROMs yet, many users have requested its removal. With that in mind, XDA Senior Member AshtonTS posted a simple guide for the HTC Rezound to completely remove HTCLinkify. As luck would have it, the guide is actually compatible with any HTC device with HTCLinkify.

The guide itself is simple. The first step is removing the HTCLinkify apk file using your favorite root ex. . . READ ON »

New Automated HTC EVO 4G LTE Root Method

EVO 4G LTE root

The HTC EVO 4G LTE will undoubtedly be one of those crowd favorite devices for some time to come. With some pretty awesome stuff being released in the last couple weeks, development continues to move right along with a new root method that is, believe it or not, even easier than the solutions in place now.

XDA Senior Member regaw_leinad brings a completely one-click solution that roots the phone, unlocks the bootloader using HTC Dev’s website, and installs a custom recovery. What separates this method from others is the truly automated process. The other methods require users to unlock the bootloader manually, going to the HTC Dev website and entering in their information on their own. This method doe. . . READ ON »

EVO 4G LTE Dual Core Tweak Ported to One S, AT&T / Rogers One X

homepage-image-02

We recently brought you coverage of dual-core tweaks  for the HTC EVO 4G LTE. For those who don’t remember, the modification boosted performance by forcing the device’s second core to remain on at all times. Given the performance increases seen in certain situations, you would assume that this would be ported to its sibling devices featuring the same SoC.

XDA Recognized Developer -viperboy- has done exactly this for users of the HTC One S. Once the One S users got in the action, it couldn’t possibly be long before AT&T and Rogers One X owners wanted in as well. Worry not, as -viperboy- explains:

Hello everybody, I was asked to bring this mod over from the EVO 4G LTE section and since th

Dual Core Mod for the HTC EVO LTE

htc evo lte

It’s been hardly no time, and already developers here on XDA are finding ways to make the already powerful HTC EVO 4G LTE even faster and achieve better battery life. While the bulk of development is still ahead, some luck in creating custom recoveries can flash kernels despite not having true S-Off has helped things along. Overall, the horizon looks really good for Sprint’s newest flagship phone. And this is all despite Apple’s attempt to prevent it from coming to the States.

XDA Recognized Developer -viperboy- has released a mod that will keep the 2nd CPU in the dual core phone on all the time, which originally gained popularity on the HTC EVO 3D. The mod is easy to install. Users need to b. . . READ ON »

For a phone that was just released, it can be said with no argument that the development for the HTC EVO LTE has been on fire. The device, which has already been rooted also has a few mods available. So where is the custom ROM and kernel goodness?
