Jelly Bean for the Epic 4G Touch and Flyer / EVO View 4G

Jelly Bean Again

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 »

Notes Mobile and FlexT9 Ported to HTC View and Flyer

Notes Mobile

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 »

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.

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 »

HTC EVO View 4G Port For EVO 4G…. Now With HDMI!

flyer express

A little while back, we spoke about a rather interesting port for the EVO 4G, courtesy of XDA member the_plattypus. Well, while it seemed that the project was stalled for a while,the dev has been silently working on improving it and working out bugs and kinks. A few days ago, he posted that the rom was indeed getting better and that several things that people were longing for were finally fixed such as the ability to mirror your device onto a high definition screen/monitor through the device’s HDMI out. Other improvements include the newer Gingerbread 2.3.4 build being used as a base, and finally a smoother Rosie to play with.

The development will be put on hold momentarily due to technical difficulties w. . . READ ON »

How To Install A Honeycomb ROM On HTC Flyer 32Gb

flyerhc3

This week has started off rather busy in terms of news for being labour day. And now we have a how-to guide by XDA member globatron, who informed us about this complete guide for installing Android Honeycomb on the HTC Flyer.

According to the source, this guide has only been tested on a Euro WWE 32GB 3G Flyer, but it may work on other configurations as well. The ROM is completely stock and if you have all the necessary files, you can revert back to Gingerbread if needed. Please be sure to know how to proceed before starting as this may damage your device.

Please let us know about your experience with Honeycomb on your Flyer.
