EVO desktop

So, when you bought your HTC EVO 4G, you probably thought to yourself “I am ditching my PC the moment I get my hands on this.” There have been various tools out there that would allow for some PC-like functionality on your EVO, but nothing major and most of them are scattered throughout XDA and even the Android market. XDA member Lokifish Marz has decided to put everything together in a single package/guide in order to show you the true power of your deskEVO. The bundle of apps that he collected are mostly free and are all needed to ensure that you get everything out of your new “Desktop”. This works on CM6.1.2 as it has mouse pointer support. The dev has even posted a video of him using the desktop with mouse, keyboard, speakers, and monitor (needless to say, you will need a monitor with a HDMI port.

Please try this out and leave some feedback if it has worked for you.

I finally finished up the “Desktop” configuration guide showing how to use your Evo as a Desktop PC/Workstation. Above is a pic of what I’ve been using for close to a month now for everything but site updates. It does have it’s quirks but after using it for a while I can over look most of them but the browser still drives me nuts. Most of the apps are free but please support devs and purchase the full versions.

You can find more information in the guide thread.

qik_logo

So, if you are one of the lucky ones who have an EVO rocking CM7 (or any Gingerbread build for that matter), you are probably missing Qik, the video chat application. It has taken the CM team quite a while but to no avail. Thanks to the newest drop of the official Gingerbread rom for the EVO, which comes with Qik included, XDA member mazdarider23 was able to finally install it and get it working with no issues on his EVO. The installation of the app is not as straight forward as simply opening an apk, so make sure that you are rooted and that you have Root Explorer or Astro File Manager in order to place this in your device. It works well according to the dev, so please take it out for a spin and leave some feedback if it worked for you.

Alright so up to now, I’ve had hell trying to get QIK working on CM7 or for any GB rom for that matter. Well look no more…..

Just install it via Root Explorer or Astro File Manager for those that don’t know what to do with it!
Oh and if you want to test it out and don’t have anyone to call via QIK….call me.

Advertisment
sensation1

As if surprises for today were not enough with the leaked Gingerbread Rom for the Evo 4G, the owners of this not-so-little device have something else that they will be able to sink their teeth in. As it turns out, there was another leak found today and this was for the upcoming HTC Sensation. XDA member rockypr has posted this dump for devs to have a crack at it. If and when this gets ported, that will mean that the Evo will get a functional Sense 3.0 UI, despite of what HTC may say about lack of hardware compatibility.
So far, a few devs are going at it and they claim that the whole package is around 500 MB (now, keep in mind that this is the full dump, so thing will likely come off before a Rom can be flashed into the EVO. So far wallpapers have been extracted and are ready for download.
If you think you can contribute to the project, please drop by the thread and leave some feedback.

I just want to share this ZIP, So if any DEV wants to Port this to the EVO.

08_gingerbread-evo-thundebolt

To all of you EVO owners out there, you will be happy to learn that we have a leak of an official Gingerbread build with Sense for the EVO. XDA member wdfowty found it earlier today and has posted it in our beloved site. XDA member XxXViRuSXxX has quickly rooted, deodexed it, and equipped it with busybox, so that our members out there will have something to play with in their spare time. At this point in time, people are frantically downloading it, so there are no reports on how it runs or what it runs, aside from a few people having posted a few bits from the build.prop. However, the biggest disappointments so far seem to be that the Sense version is still stuck at 1.00.000.0417771.651 and according to one of the members, the build.prop seems to show that there is no wifi-N. This, however, is a test version according to many of our members, so newer releases are bound to show up eventually. Lastly, this also comes with a new radio. Make sure that you NANDROID before flashing this (you know, just in case).

Did this work for you? How do you like official Gingerbread? Please leave your comments below.

UPDATE: Thanks to Tmartin03, you guys now have something to play with!

http://www.multiupload.com/VIOMPVJC5Z (Rooted, deodexed, busybox included. Otherwise, completely stock)

Just saw this on 911sniper:

Thanks NotATreoFan for the tip!

kernel mgr

We know how much you all love flashing anything that comes across your screen on your EVO 4G. This is not just a matter of roms but also kernels. We always strive to find the perfect match for whatever rom we are sporting at the moment. You are all too familiar and used to the process of flashing them as well: Go into Recovery, clear dalvik and regular cache, flash the zipped kernel, reboot, and voila. Well, XDA member Shinzul and TeamWin who are responsible for most breakthroughs in the world of the HTC EVO, have done it again and released Universal Kernel Manager. Basically, think of this as ROM Manager, but with Kernels. With space provided by TeamWin’s dedicated servers, the devs aim at having all kernel devs send in their kernels to host them in a single place. The app automatically does everything from downloading to clearing caches and rebooting, so with only a few clicks you can sport a new kernel in no time… no going through recovery required! The app also offers descriptions for these kernels in case you want to find out what you are about to flash.

This is still a work in progress and TeamWin is waiting for kernel devs to start submitting their work to start populating the app. Once this happens, the app will finally be released in the market. Be sure to visit the dev’s site if you have a kernel that you would like to share this way. Also, you may want to bookmark as this should be released shortly (please do not ask for ETA)!

Hey everyone! Team Win is back again, this time with a new app with a very simple but ambitious goal: create a place where all kernel developers can submit kernels easily and reach a much wider audience with ease.

The app currently does this:

sprint-voicemail

If you have your EVO 4G on Sprint, then you probably enjoy the benefits of Visual Voicemail. And also if you have an EVO 4G, you are probably enjoying CM7 running rather seamlessly in it as well. However, these two cannot coexist in the same device. So, what do you give up? The answer, thanks to XDA member TonyArmstrong, is absolutely nothing!! The member was browsing around looking for a solution, and he found one, which he decided to share with the rest of us EVO users. He wrote a very detailed guide and attached all the necessary files to apply the fix to this rom. The nightly that this was applied to was #12, but should work for later ones including the final release that came out yesterday.

Please try this out and leave some feedback if this worked for you.

  1. Download the Sprint VVM 5.1.0.48 Titanium Backup zip: Download attached below
  2. Extract the Sprint VVM 5.1.0.48 Titanium Backup zip to the root of the SD card.
  3. Download & install Titanium Backup from the Market.
  4. Launch Titanium Backup and make sure Sprint VVM is removed (if not, use Titanium Backup to remove it).

LightningBoltTatoo_400x400

Here is a nice little set of scripts fort he HTC EVO 4G brought to us by XDA member -viperboy-. The dev explains how most kernels used in the EVO are developed to be universal to many devices and as such, undervolting has to be done in a rather slight manner. Because of this, the kernels that you may be using could be optimized a bit more, which would yield better battery life in the process. -viperboy- has compiled into flashable scripts what he has read in a few development threads about user’s experiences with different values for undervolting, some being more aggressive than others. There is the distinct possibility that your device may become unresponsive or go into boot loops after applying these and the reason is actually rather simple: supplying less voltage than what the processor needs to run will make it act “funny”. If this happens to you, don’t worry because the dev has you covered as well. One of the zip files attached in the thread is to remove these scripts completely and you should be back to normal in no time. Remember that this is only for AOSP kernels. There are some for Sense based kernels as well in a different thread, which is linked in the thread.

What does this do?
Below are 4 flashable .zips that will lower the HAVS voltages of AOSP kernels. This mod will help to increase your battery life by lessening the draw of power the CPU can use. With HAVS, there is a voltage range that a certain CPU speed will use. These scripts lower both the MIN and MAX voltage at each speed, even if your kernel is already undervolted.

1x 3G

There is a little nuance (if you can call it that) present in most Sense roms for the HTC EVO 4G, and that is the fact that you will never know if you are currently connected to a 3G network or to 1x (aside from the abysmal speed difference). The connectivity indicator in the Status bar in the Sense roms in the EVO does not automatically switch, which is normally nothing big, but it is aesthetically wrong, which actually is a big thing considering how many members we have that suffer from OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). XDA member nivron was tinkering with the services.jar and ended up being able to find a fix that seems to work for most roms out there. Many members have reported that it works on various Sense roms. The dev has provided a flashable zip that will take care of all the manual labor for you. However, if you feel a little adventurous and want to try it yourself, he also provided the tools and instructions on how to do this. Keep in mind that if you are on AOSP, you do not have to worry about this.

If you have tried it in a rom that has not been reported so far, please be sure to report that in the thread.

Background: One of the main things I like about CyanogenMod is the fact that it shows when your signal is on 3G/1X. Calkulin’s EViO ROM also has the ability to show 3G/1X. In a thread discussing the signal indicator in the status bar, Calk mentioned that the secret lies in HtcCdmaStatusBar.smali in the services.jar file. I’ve never really done any modifications before, besides trying to hack the framework-res.apk file (aimlessly) in this pursuit before I saw Calk’s post.

ShootMe Mod for Higher FPS

April 6, 2011   By:

shootme

Not too long ago, there was an app in the Android Market called ShootMe. This app basically allows you to not only take screenshots of your device but it also allows you to do screencasting, which basically translates to doing video of your screens. The original app was rather limited though as it only allowed you to make videos at rather low FPS (frames per second). Well, XDA member neckface wanted something a bit faster out of this, so the dev decided to tinker with the internals of the app to get more out of it. After a little while, he came up with a mod that would allow him to shoot the video at 30, 45, and even 9001 FPS! The app has been removed from the market for some reason, but still works. Also, the dev provides a link to the modded app in his thread, but it seems to not be working. However, not all hope is lost because if you want to look for the app and find it, the dev has provided the necessary information to do this yourself.

Please leave some feedback and share the app with the rest of the community if you find it.

Shoot Me came out with an update a couple of days ago that brought screencasting. But only at 3, 5, and 10 frames per second.

I then saw Amon RA post a YouTube video of him screencasting at 30 fps.

I wanted it, so I baksmali’d the app and started poking around and found it was an easy mod.

evoback

The heart of this site has always been modding. Hardware modding has always taken a back sit due to the, sometimes, complex actions to be performed in the process. Hardware modders normally have a lot of experience in cracking devices open, soldering, and more. There are a few mods out there that are not nearly as complex and can be easily done with a bit of patience. For instance, XDA member Childofthehorn has posted a thread about a mod that he made for his EVO, where he placed a LED light in the speaker on the back of the phone. Not exactly useful, but it is cool to see how people can come up with different concepts that will add your device that distinct touch that says “this is my device”.

The guide itself is located in the user’s blog, but you can see the end result in the thread. Judging from the pictures it simply looks like the LED is feeding from the battery directly, so it should be fairly simple to do. Please leave some feedback for the dev if you liked this.

Hey guys,

Thought I might post about my HTC EVO Back-lit speaker mod and other things done to my phone physically.

HDMIWin

If you live in the US, you may have seen Sprint’s stands throughout various shopping malls across the country. These stands have 1 purpose and 1 purpose alone, to promote their top of the line EVO 4G and Epic 4G. What is peculiar about these is the fact that they sport giant versions of both devices, which are actually interactive. If you have seen them, and have an EVO, you probably started drooling about the fact that you would love to mirror whatever it is on your display in your shinny HDMI capable TV or monitor. XDA member Shinzul along with TeamWin have managed to create a free application that will allow you to do just that. By using the HDMI connector in the EVO, you can mirror your screen on your TV. This means that every phone call, message, app, video, or anything you are doing with your phone at the moment will be displayed in a big scale by your TV. Ever wanted to play Angry Birds on a 46 inch LED in high def? Now is your chance!

The app works for both AOSP roms as well as Sense. Although, Sense seems to be having less issues with sound and flickering according to some reports. There is even a demo video in the first post that will show you how smooth this works. The app can easily be downloaded from the market, so if you have a HDMI cable and are itching to use it, now is your chance. Please leave some feedback for the devs.

#teamwin is back again, this time supporting full HDMI mirroring on the evo!

StatusBar Pulldown

With the continual development of Cyanogen Mod, occasionally you may run into outdated mods and morphs. Luckily, XDA member rori~ has continued development on his Statusbar PulldownMod morph and has provided us with an update for use with CM7 . Whether your phone is HDPI or MDPI, you can benefit from this clean and practical notification bar.

According to the developer, this morph can be used with all nightlies after CM7 RL1 and has been confirmed working with the following phones:

– LeoGingerBread
– Nexus S
– G2
– EVO
– Desire
– Incredible

The new design includes:

  • Gingerbread themed icons
  • Moved carrier name, added 3D text
  • Ongoing notification, fm.radio, download status text is white
  • Moved & edited clear button, added 3D text
  • New scrolling bar
Originally Posted by rori~

When the best just keeps getting better, one can’t do anything other than watch in awe as it happens. One of the newly announced devices from HTC, the Incredible S, has had a dumped RUU for a couple of days now. Our devs, in their eternal quest for perfection decided that it would be a fun project trying to port this new dump onto other devices. XDA members myn and incubus26jc, who are largely recognized for their work on the Vogue, Incredible, and EVO were successful in porting this onto the HTC EVO 4G and the HTC Incredible. Needless to say, the ports are far from complete as many things still need work, like 4G, HDMI, camera, and a few other things, in the case of the EVO.

This new RUU comes loaded with a few updated goodies such as HTC Kernel #15, so if you don’t mind the non-working parts of the rom, you can take it for a test drive. Keep in mind, that this is in very early development stages, so if you believe that you can be of assistance to the devs, please be sure to leave detailed feedback on the thread to try and improve this port.

This is a port of the HTC Incredible S RUU for the HTC Droid Incredible and HTC Evo 4G.

This is a community driven ROM. It’s development is open to any willing contributors at
http://code.google.com/p/incredible-s-united-base/
and
http://code.google.com/p/incredible-s-united-vendor/.
To become a contributor you will need to send wdfowty a PM asking him.

Also, if you want to branch this off and start your own device port, you are more than welcome to.

We have an IRC channel set up. ##inc-s-baseirc.freenode.com feel free to join us in there.

This will remain an unthemed ROM. It is far easier to use the built in theming and as time progresses and this becomes a more mature ROM we will look into adding them.
