screenshot_1

We’ve already brought you reports of a work in progress for the HTC HD2 getting touch-enabled recovery. As it turns out, there’s several other phones who’ve had it for a couple weeks already.

Thanks to the devoted work of Team UtterChaos, featuring XDA Recognized Developer DooMLoRD along with XDA Senior Member Napster.

There’s a few phones they’re actively supporting their touch-enabled recovery on. For those who are unfamiliar, touch-enabled recovery is a recovery that utilizes touch screen controls to navigate instead of the old school volume rocker + power button method. We can all agree, those poor hardware buttons could use a little break, right?

Work In Progress to Give HD2 Touch Screen-Enabled Recovery

img0899dz

The legendary HTC HD2 gets a lot of cool modifications. The phone can run 3 different operating systems and holds the throne as the most developed phone of all time.

And it doesn’t stop there, as XDA Senior Member munjeni has recently released a touch-capable version of ClockworkMod Recovery for those running Android on the HTC HD2. It’s a pretty cool modification to an otherwise stable and effective recovery, as it’s big claim to fame is that it gives those tired, worn out volume rockers and power button a well deserved breather. It instead gives the user a few touch buttons on the bottom of the screen that the user can use to navigate the always familiar ClockworkMod interface.

New Driver Fixes HTC HD2 Multitouch Issues In WP7, Proves Nothing Is Impossible

HD2

One of the last few issues that remain with Windows Phone 7 on the HTC HD2 has been fixed: well-known developer AnDim squashed some bugs in the touchscreen driver, enabling for better multitouch. Previously, you had to touch the screen with both fingers at the exact same time when trying to pinch-to-zoom a picture or webpage. This isn’t necessary anymore, and should improve usability a lot.

Wait. If you think about it, this is amazing. Who said that multitouch was impossible to fix? I did. But I what I said – that this particular issue was “related to low-level drivers, which are practically impossible to implement without any documentation” – was what almost everyone thought. But we&#. . . READ ON »

Fix Your European Android GPS Lock Manually

void(0)

Are you a European Android user? If so, you may have noticed that your GPS locking performance is often sub-par. Last month, we wrote about a fantastic application by XDA forum member The_Double that fixes this problem for you by editing your /system/etc/gps.conf file.

However, some users are a bit old fashioned and would rather do the modifications themselves. To that end, XDA forum member Claus72 has written a simple, 1-step guide to help you do exactly this. Obviously you need to have full root access to your device to perform the fix.

While originally written for the HTC HD2, this should work on all European Android devices.

I have had one problem with gps fix, it took about 90 sec to fix satellites.

Two Years Later: The Amazing HTC HD2

HD2

It’s hard to believe just how much the smartphone space has changed since that phone, the HTC HD2, was released in November 2009, two years ago.

With this active developer support and a thriving community, it went on to become the most popular device in xda-developers history, and was voted as the best HTC device of both 2009 and 2010 in our forums.

ICS AOSP Hits The HD2

NexusHD2-IceCreamSandwich_Beta1_(Android-4.0.1)_10

It looks like the giant refuses to go down because of time. The quasi-immortal HTC Leo aka HD2 seems to still be holding its own regardless of the time that is being added onto its aluminum back cover. Every single OS since the introduction of the device to our forums a couple of years ago, has been able to boot and be usable thanks to the incredible efforts and countless hours being poured onto it by our devs. This time, XDA Recognized Developer tytung has taken the time to look into the brand new source for Ice Cream Sandwich and decided to try and get it to fit into the HD2.

The HTC HD2 truly is a remarkable device. Over the last two years, we have seen it take on various challenges that have prolonged its life expectancy far longer than anyone would have guessed. Well, there seems to be room for improvement because the BRAVIA Engine for the Sony Experia family has been successfully ported over to the Leo. If you are not certain about what the Bravia Engine actually is or does, you can find a quick video demonstration here. However, the basic premise is that this will greatly enhance your viewing experience on the device thanks to various effects that greatly increase the quality of the images that you ate looking at on the screen. This feat was accomplished by the hard work o. . . READ ON »
