POSTS TAGGED: HTC Flyer
Posted August 31, 2011 at 06:00 am by egzthunder1
Leaks are the life and blood of the mobile development scene. More often than not, leaks get ported to all sorts of devices, enabling new features in the process. The rather silent HTC Flyer world just got hit with a leak for its AT&T counterpart, the HTC Puccini. XDA member ikingblack found it and immediately posted a link in the Flyer forums for the devs to start cracking it open to see what goodies it was loaded with. And better yet, what kind of bloatware will be taken out from the rom once it becomes bootable.
Needless to say, and as you would expect, the leak in its virgin form cannot be flashed onto anything. What is more, the devs who have been able to flash it cannot get it to boot. It will take some time, but i. . . READ ON »

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. Well, it looks like our developers are not the type to sit and wait until a proper fix is released by the manufacturer, so the matters were once again picked up as projects by our members. In this particular case, XDA member clubtech decided that he wanted to have the phone functionality that is built in Android available on his Flyer, so he tweaked several parameters and after playing enough with them, he finally got Android to show the infamous calling icon. However, this tale of self improvement does not en. . . READ ON »

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 »

It looks like despite all the woes that HTC is facing, people have not gotten discouraged from getting their products. The latest lineup of devices, most of them being equipped with new versions of Sense are hitting the shelves left and right and as a result of that, our devs are getting new toys to play with. You may have read already about a temp (perma-temp) rooting method, which was developed for the HTC Sensation and EVO 3D and that enables some root functionality to the devices (busybox, SU, allows installing unsigned apps, etc). However, the root does not allow for custom rom or kernel flashing as of yet. It seems that after messing with several other methods, XDA member Elim has found out that the same tool u. . . READ ON »

If you are a gamer or like video games, then you more than likely have heard of a device and service called “OnLive”, which came out a couple of years ago. OnLive allows you to play online games for any consoles without actually owning them, for a small fee, of course. The whole thing runs from very powerful servers that give you great gaming experience from your TV and without having to put out $300 for a console or $50 for a game, which you are likely to re-sell for a third of the price once you get tired of it. This new concept in gaming seems to be making its way into Android, because according to XDA member Wobblin30, the HTC Flyer just received an OTA which included something called OnLive Viewer. As its n. . . READ ON »

That´s the magic of XDA! When you think you´ve seen it all, you get something new and exciting. This time, XDA member Natkaffe pointed us to the first ROM from HTC Flyer ported for Desire HD and Inspire 4G. The rom comes loaded with full landscape support. However, this ROM is at early stages of development but according to the original poster, it is good enough to be used as daily. There are several non-working features as of yet:
– Car panel
– Almost every app needs some resizing
– Gallery starts, but doesn’t show pictures
– Most popup window needs resizing
– Touch keys don’t work in landscape
– Keyboard is too big, many letters are unavailable
– Weathe. . . READ ON »

Despite not being based on tablet-optimised Honeycomb, the ROM for the upcoming HTC Flyer tablet has attracted considerable attention due to the integration of a refreshed version of the HTC Sense interface, along with many other useful features.
Over on the Samsung Galaxy Tab forums, several users have come together with the intention of garnering enough developmental attention for a port of the Flyer’s Gingerbread-based ROM to the older device. Although they don’t expect it to be an easy task, the fact that the Galaxy Tab and the Flyer both have a 600 by 1024 pixel resolution display (unlike the 800 by 1280 found on almost all other popular Android tablets) should make such a port a fairly reali. . .

For those of us loving the new HTC Sense 3.0 UI that we can see on the new Evo 3D or the Sensation, the first question that comes to mind is if it will be possible to port it into older devices. XDA member cjward23 told us about an article which mentions that only Evo 3D, Sensation, and Flyer will be capable of running the new HTC Sense 3.0. What do you think?
We leave this article open for discussion to know what members and developers think. Some of us think the great minds on XDA will find a way to port this sooner or later!
Please leave your opinion.

Looks like HTC opened up the flood gates this past week at MWC (Mobile World Congress). They have introduced their upcoming line up, which explains why their performance was not as strong at CES. 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 devices are running Android, but the biggest surprise from this line up is HTC’s entrance into the Tablet wars. Although, to be fair the HTC was here first with other “large devices” such as the HTC Shift, which even though was considered an UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC), still . . . READ ON »
