POSTS TAGGED: HTC EVO 4g

HTC EVO 4G and EVO View 4G Added to Sprint’s List Of Device End-Of-Life

sprit_eol_list

Not much ago we informed you about Sprint sending updates For HTC EVO 4G and EVO Design 4G which will remove the infamous Carrier IQ; well now it seems that not only Carrier IQ will be removed as the company included HTC EVO 4G and EVO View 4G on the most updated list of devices coming to End-Of-Life.

This means that both HTC devices are ending their days on the shelves. EVO 4G is expected to leave this week, and the EVO View 4G -Sprint´s version of HTC Flyer- will leave next week.

It´s amazing how carriers dictate when a device has become “old” even if it is not. Or perhaps the sales of those specific models are not going so well? -which I don´t think so-. Maybe it´s just another way to make space for the new up. . . READ ON »

Updates For HTC EVO 4G, EVO Design 4G and Samsung Epic 4G Remove Carrier IQ

sprint-logo-1

Last week, owners of the HTC EVO 3D began to receive an OTA update that, most notably, removed Carrier IQ. As Sprint has later confirmed, it is indeed looking to remove the tracking software from all its handsets, and has now begun to push out further updates for the HTC EVO 4G, EVO Design 4G and Samsung Epic 4G.

Besides removing Carrier IQ, the HTC devices are also getting updated Peep clients for Twitter and improvements to the battery life. For the Epic 4G there’s a speaker feedback fix, and some apps are no longer preinstalled, instead pointing to the Android Market. As usual with such updates, they are rolling out gradually. The HTC devices will receive automatic notifications starting on the 24th, or yo. . . READ ON »

MIUI Finally Gives HTC EVO 4G Users WiMAX

MIUI HTC Evo

For those who are still holding on to their HTC EVO 4G phones, among the most developed and popular phones of all time on XDA, you are in for a treat.

With ROMs ranging from HTC Sense 1.0 to HTC Sense 3.5, from 2.1 Eclair to 2.3 Gingerbread, there isn’t much the original Evo hasn’t gotten. They’ve had CyanogenMod6 and CyanogenMod7 and there’s even some works for Ice Cream Sandwich and talk of CyanogenMod9.

However, there is one thing the HTC EVO 4G has never had before: Wimax on an MIUI port. That is, until now.

XDA Recognized Developer Sinistertensai, along with the very dreamy Team Nocturnal, has released an MIUI port that’s based on CyanogenMod7 (affectionately nicknamed CIU. . . READ ON »

Myn’s Warm ROM Brought to Evo 3D

W3Devs-wmz-beats

It’s rare when a ROM is so popular, the number of thread views are almost equal to the total number of members on XDA. As is the case with the original Warm ROM TwoPointTwo. One of the most popular of all time for those toting the HTC Evo 4g.

Now those who have migrated to the HTC Evo 3D, you can once again get a taste what is arguably XDA Recognized Developer (and all around good guy) Myn’s greatest work thanks to the work of fellow XDA Recognized Developer JoelZ9614 and the rest of Team Warm.

The sexy, lightly themed and totally awesome ROM has received a bunch of upgrades from it’s last public release on an Evo device beginning with going from Froyo 2.2 to Gingerbread 2.3 and including:

Security Vulnerability #2 On HTC Devices (PoC #2) – WiMax Leaks

wimaxdangerapp

I know that it has been a few weeks already, but we finally have green light to keep on going with our exclusive series of security holes on HTC’s latest devices. In case you just tuned in on the whole issue, we will be talking about vulnerabilities found on HTC handsets across the globe, particularly on the EVO family of devices as well as some of the newer ones like the HTC Sensation and Kingdom. XDA Recognized Developer TrevE has been doing a fantastic job in uncovering the holes one by one, and after much testing, he found some rather interesting results of things that could easily be obtained from your device(s) due to pieces of code inside of the manufacturer’s handsets that are exclusively in c. . .

Sprint Rolls Out Updates For The EVO Family – HTC, You Can Do Better And I Will Tell You How!

evoviewupdate102511

Earlier today, we saw that Sprint decided to hit the EVO family of devices with a much needed update for the security updates depicted in what we like to call PoC#1 (proof of concept #1), which was presented by XDA Recognized Developer TrevE. This security vulnerability basically allowed open access to sensitive device information thanks to a service built into the device of an apk called htclogger. As of the latest patch rolled out by HTC, this issue has finally been put to bed. It was confirmed that HTC has indeed removed said apk from the system thus effectively taking care of the original concern regarding consumer’s sensitive data being at stake. This was a good move by HTC and considering that the amou. . . READ ON »

Are You Tired Of Using Wires To Charge Your EVO 4G? Homemade Inductive Charging Station Is Here…

inducting

At this point in time, I guess it would be safe to assume that when someone asks us about warranty left on our devices, we cannot help but to either laugh or at the very least, smile. The reason for this is that we all know how to properly break it by flashing the device(s) that we have. But there are others out there who truly believe that improvements to a device can also be done in the hardware side of things. XDA member asmd6230 is such one individual as he posted a guide with instructions on how to make your device be able to charge via induction. Now, this is a concept that comes from the Palm Pixi and a few other devices of its kind. Basically, you will simply lay your device in the charging station and it just starts charg. . . READ ON »
