POSTS TAGGED: HTC EVO View 4G

It would be redundant to mention yet again how prolific the spread of Jelly Bean has been over the last month and a half. With devices old and new, low spec’d and high spec’d alike, getting usable ports, it seems like almost any device is capable of running Google’s latest and greatest. To add to the already long list of devices, the HTC Flyer and EVO View 4G along with the Samsung Epic 4G Touch now have their own Jelly Bean ports.
The EVO View 4G and Flyer ports were both created by XDA Senior Member Dexter_nib with the help of several other members and developers. The Epic 4G Touch port was made by XDA Recognized Developer Sbrissen, who also helped out with AOSP ICS. Despite being early releases, bot. . . READ ON »

The unofficial ethos of XDA is, always has been, and always will be centered around development and sharing. When devices come out, they are almost never live up to their full potential, and that’s quite frankly why websites like XDA exist—to make these devices better and share these improvements with others. In the spirit of sharing, the Lenovo Thinkpad has been sharing some of its apps with other tablets. XDA Senior Member Gumby63 has done a little work and has ported a couple of Lenovo-specific applications to the HTC Flyer and EVO View 4G—the FlexT9 keyboard and Notes Mobile, to be exact.
The applications are relatively easy to install. Simply download the device-specific update.z. . . READ ON »

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 »

Over the past two months, HTC has been rolling out Android 3.2 updates to the various HTC Flyer models available worldwide. The Honeycomb update gives the Flyer a new UI and access to tablet specific apps on the Android Market.
But many Android enthusiasts have been ecstatic about the update, also there has been good acceptance from the general public since the update entirely changes the UI and proved to be a good upgrade for those bored with Gingerbread or simply wanting to have the “latest”.
Well this nice device called Flyer has some more goodies for us!. According to an HTC customer service rep:

Those not satisfied with Android 3.2 on the HTC Flyer can revert it back to its out of the box experience

When the HTC Flyer and EVO View 4G were announced at Mobile World Congress 2011, many were disappointed to discover that not only would the pair of devices feature single-core processors, but that they would also ship with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Despite these issues, the Flyer and EVO View 4G ultimately gained popularity due to their build quality, form factor, top notch aesthetics, and innovative HTC Scribe stylus.
Seven long months after launch, and more than a few months past schedule, HTC finally updated the pair of tablets to Android 3.2 Honeycomb in the beginning of last month. Unfortunately for those wishing for an unadulterated Honeycomb experience, the user experience was spattered with HTC Sen. . . READ ON »

I made a mistake. A few days ago I reported that, with a slew of new kernel source codes posted on HTCdev, HTC is now GPL compliant. That wasn’t true. I found out after saying it again on XDA TV. On Twitter, @gu1dry said,
That was true. Somehow, I overlooked the HTC Kingdom (HTC EVO Design 4G and HTC Hero S) when making my list of HTC’s non-GPL-compliant devices.

Livven has already talked about the Honeycomb update and you can find the article right here .
If you take a stroll down XDA way and take a gander at this thread you can check out this early release of s-off instructions.
As globatron states in the thread,
This is an early version of the S-OFF procedure intended for experienced modders / developers not for general users, if you are neither of these, then it is not intended for you at this time.
So, as the warning states, unless you’re an experienced developer then you should pro. . . READ ON »

According to reports in our forums and confirmed by Sprint Support, the EVO View 4G, essentially Sprint’s version of the HTC Flyer tablet, is now getting an update to Android 3.2.1 over-the-air. It brings all the Honeycomb goodness you’d expect, but, due to the differences to Gingerbread, will also reset your homescreen to factory-defaults. However, it’s strongly advised to hold off on the update if you’re rooted, as pointed out by forum member globatron:

- If you take this upgrade there is no HTC unlock for the View yet.
- This means no root for now
- This means no custom ROMs for now
- This means no rollback to gingerbread for now
- In other words this is a dead-end for now.
- There is no S-OFF tool

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. . .
