Jelly Bean for the Epic 4G Touch and Flyer / 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...

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

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...

Yesterday, we published an article about a major "oops" that was found on both the HTC Flyer and EVO View 4G, which essentially prevents you from using a Bluetooth headset to use it as a microphone.

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...

HTC Flyer ROM on Galaxy Tab – Can We Do It?

In any case, since we haven't really had a whole lot coming from HTC lately (aside from the Inspire and the Thunderbolt), we felt that it was in the best interest of our community to try and get us moving with the current. All of these...
