HTC View ROM Ported to the EVO 3D, Surprisingly Functional

HTC EVO 3D View

Porting ROMs from one Android device to another is usually pretty exciting. It gives users a chance to sample the goods of another device without throwing down $500 USD in order to actually buy the device. Plus, it’s always kind of cool to show your friends your phone running a completely different OEM skin or different version of an OEM skin. Bragging rights for the win, right?

XDA Senior Member the_plattypus has given flashaholics carrying the HTC EVO 3D something a little different to play with. It’s a mash up of a HTC View 4g ROM along with pieces of the EVO 3D ROM thrown in to help make things work. It’s a premise the_plattypus has used before with great results.

The ROM is pretty nice and the is. . . READ ON »

htc_flyer_ics

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

De-Sensed Honeycomb for the HTC Flyer and EVO View 4G

2011-12-29_15-15-22

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 »

Can’t Use a BT Headset With Your EVO View / Flyer? Here is why…

BT

Lots of us buy devices with the idea that they will serve multiple purposes. Anything from being our portable media storage, to our game centrals, all the way to being our mobile office. One thing that we automatically expect to have when we see that the device has Bluetooth functionality is the ability to use a BT headset so that we can use Wifi for chatting and video calling. Well, it looks like the good people over at HTC forgot to add a small module onto the device that allows for this functionality over BT. According to a thread started by XDA member frh1, the HTC Flyer and its WiMax enabled relative, the EVO View 4G, are not exactly equipped with these capabilities. The member apparently spent lots of time pairin. . . READ ON »
