The Definitive Wake Lock Issue Fix For EVO

nowake

One of the most annoying issues that has pestered the HTC EVO 4G for a long time is the one known as the “Wake Lock”, which is an issue that seemingly keeps your phone wide awake even though you put it to sleep. This seemingly innocent issue drains your battery like crazy. This is not rom type specific, which means that you will get it regardless of you being on a Sense rom or an AOSP rom. There have been several attempts at fixing this, but with random results. But now, it looks like after a lot of testing with several roms and various devices, XDA member JBabey figured out the best way to do away with this problem. It seems that the problem doesn’t lie within a single part of the firmware but rather as a c. . . READ ON »

Sprint HotSpot App Freed (Again)

evo-4g-sprint-hotspot

As of recently, most US carries decided to start cracking down on people who use their data plan for tethering. They use a variety of methods such as monitoring the usage, capping data speeds, and many more. Now, it looks like Sprint decided to go down that route as well and thus, decided to lock the HotSpot app in the latest Sprint Official Rom for the EVO 4G. Well, needless to say that you can use other methods to tether, such as WiFi Tether, which is a free app that happens to be blocked from the market by various carriers. Another option would be to simply avoid the update altogether and use of one of the other fine custom roms that can be found in the EVO section. However, in case you are itching to see what Sprint did with t. . . READ ON »

Tired of Software Skinning? How About Hardware Skinning?

white evo

Personalized devices have been a cornerstone of our little world. Skins of all kinds and for all kinds of applications have made their way across XDA, giving us the right amount of eye candy that we need when we look at our screens. But what about the phone itself? Devices have different designs and as of late, different color schemes on the body. One such case is the HTC EVO 4G, which sports a red interior that appeals to quite a few people, but not everyone. XDA member skydeaner is one such member and he decided to take matters into his own hands and tried to get rid of the bits and pieces of red that can be seen on the EVO (with the back cover on). In this case, he sanded the camera’s outer ring as well as the place wher. . . READ ON »

Sense’s 3.0 Panorama Enabled Camera apk Extracted For EVO

Sense 3 camera

Sense 3.0 has come to several of our devices bearing tons of new gifts and utilities to play with, as well as beautiful eye candy. Functionality of some elements has also been somewhat improved, and considering the needy bunch that we are here on XDA, we want to have these new capabilities without having to cough up $200-$300 every time something like this hits the market. So, with this in mind and considering that we have several dumps coming from all directions, loaded with Sense 3-goodness,  XDA member francois.d.dillinger decided to take a crack at getting the camera app to work on his EVO. The camera app not only works but it also allows you to take panoramic pictures and also, it allows you to use the 1080p vi. . . READ ON »

Shooter Dump Leaked and Being Worked On.

htc-evo-3d-1301365954-971

You’d better get your umbrella out if you haven’t already because as of lately it has been raining HTC leaks. Also, while last time we thought that the HTC Kingdom was the codenamed device for the upcoming EVO 3D, it looks like we were wrong. As of today in the morning, XDA member XxXViRuSXxX along with a few others, posted a thread with links and mirrors to the latest leak found on 911sniper. This time is for the HTC Shooter, which according to the insides of the dump and its manifest, it actually is the awaited rom for the EVO 3D. Aside from the fact hat it clearly states that this will be going for the carrier, it comes bearing all the Sense 3.0 goodness that you can expect from something like this, as well a. . . READ ON »

HTC Kingdom Rom Ported to EVO (1st Release)

Kingdom

It has been quite a weekend for Sense lovers with the release of the first fully functional set of Sense 3.0 roms for the Desire family. As the Evo devs recently got their hands on dumps for the upcoming HTC Kingdom, the Doubleshot, and the Sensation, they were bound come out with something soon. XDA member XxXViRuSXxX has released the first release of the Kingdom port that he had been working on for the last few days. This port is a collaboration project with the other two ports already mentioned (and several devs as well) due to the roms being rather similar and the combined effort to get Rosie and all the 3D ish looking elements of Sense 3.0 working.

As you will see in the list below, mostly everything works in the dev. . . READ ON »

Sense 3.0 Lockscreen From DoubleShot Working For Some GingerSense Roms

3.0 lockscreen

Are you drooling over the newest features present in Sense 3.0? For all EVO 4G owners out there, XDA member GODZSON was able to extract the lockscreen apk from the Doubleshot leaked rom and shared it as a stand alone apk, no need to flash via recovery. This means that you can get this working on a regular Sense Gingerbread rom without too much of an issue. The installation seems to be rather straight forward and it seems that this already works in at least 7 roms over at the EVO forums. This may also work for other Sense WVGA devices, so if you want, please take it for a spin and see how it turns out.

If you liked this and you got it to run in other roms than the ones listed, please be sure to share your findings with the rest of the . . . READ ON »

HTC Kingdom Dumped and Currently Being Ported

evo 3d

Not too long ago, we mentioned in here that the dump for the HTC Sensation (HTC’s newest flagship) became available in our forums. Teams of devs throughout the site have been going hard at it in an attempt to port this over to devices such as the Desire HD, Thunderbolt, and EVO 4G. Most of these ports are doing very good progress, although some succeed in areas that others fail. Well, if you thought that the Sensation port was fun, wait until you get your hands on the newest dump available, the HTC Kingdom. What in the world is the Kingdom? As it turns out, after a rather in depth analysis by XDA member XxXViRuSXxX, the rom seems to be a Sprint Sense rom with tons of 3D elements and widgets. So, if you were curious as t. . . READ ON »

Update: m10 File Tools Finally Released!!!

m10

Well, it really didn’t take the devs much time. Just this morning, we published an article describing a new set of tools that will be crucial for devs working on Sense 3.0 ports to be able to reduce the image sizes and get them to “fit” the screen. XDA members Flemmard and DiamondBack2010 have finally released their set of tools to work with these new files. The tool set will allow you to decompile, edit, and re-compile the .m10 files, thus allowing you to manipulate all the graphics in this new UI.

The devs have clearly stated that they tools are still in beta stage. However, they have provided some screenshots that will pretty much speak for themselves (all widgets fitting perfectly on the s. . . READ ON »
