Pretty much everyone who drops by this behemoth of a site can find something they like… But what do you do if you really, really like XDA? Perhaps this is a question best answered by forum member facdemol, who has shown his XDAddiction in a rather creative way.

I had some spare time and thought of making something i wanted to do for some time ago. It’s my first time doing this (although i’m familiar with the process since i use it for PCB making) but i thought i should give it a try. And in great recognition of what the XDA community enabled us – the users – to do with our phones, i wanted to brand my phone’s battery cover with the XDA logo next to the andoid logo, the thing (os) that x

Ports on our devies are simply brilliant projects. They are, for the most part, dreams come true. For instance, having Windows Phone 7 running on a much older device was deemed by many as an impossible feat. However, after lots of collaboration between devs, the project got successfully completed by our friends over at DFT. As it is customary with Microsoft, the new updates of the OS roll out filled with bugs, bug-fixes, and new and improved security updates. Now, translating that into plain English, security updates stand for patching loopholes and exploits that allowed hackers to do more fun stuff with the device and the OS. The case is here for Mango as well, which our friends at DFT ported once more. However, a. . . READ ON »

Most of you Windows Mobile ex users (and current ones) have likely flashed your device a few times over (else, you’d likely not be in this site). One of the most annoying things about flashing roms is the fact that you must reconfigure your settings, re-install everything is nothing short of a pain. There are various methods out there to automatically reconfigure your phone post flashing such as Sashimi, XDA_UC, and a few others. However, XDA Recognized Developer M3PH decided to make his own, exclusively to integrate and work well with NRG roms. EXCT2 is the second incarnation of this tool and among some of its major improvements, it will allow a user to enter all of their desired settings without having . . . READ ON »

Without a doubt, the HTC HD2 is one of HTC’s greatest devices of all time. The shape factor, screen size, and raw power and capabilities are unmatched by most phones that came around when this was released, and even now. Not too long ago, XDA member mccmjoon76 successfully started porting a Sense 3.0 rom from the Desire HD. Almost two months after the initial release, the rom is currently almost a daily driver, as praised by many members and people who use this rom. However, the road towards perfection becomes easier when you have company and people that help. As it turns out, XDA member BoxmaX released a patch that fixed the camera issues that seem to bug most Sense 3.0 roms. Not only is the camera fixe. . . READ ON »

For those lucky members in possession of the great HTC HD2, XDA member ksubedi brings the All in One Toolkit for Leo / HD2 NAND. According to him, the main purpose of this toolkit is to simplify many complex tools/guides which are difficult or unsafe to use. The main highlights of what you can do are:
- Simplifies Installation of cLK and MAGLDR (Android Bootloaders)
- Simplifies Installing Roms, Radios, SPL’s and other things by letting you install NBH Files with one click
- Makes it easier to Re-Partition your Android Phone
- Makes it easier to install Recovery
- Automates process of flashing NBH Files
The thread also contains a full guide on how to partition and upgrade MAGLDR and cLK plus some extra instruct. . . READ ON »

Running Linux on mobile phones is something a lot of developers have tried to do and have failed. It’s also something a lot of developers have tried to do and have succeeded, on an array of different devices. If you’re an HTC HD2 owner, then we have some good news for you. Not only do you now have Linux, but you have the ability to boot it within Android. Cool, huh?
XDA member dan1j3l has created an app which he likes to call ToolBox. The app comes packed with a hot bootloader, which allows you to virtually boot Linux within Android. A few users have asked whether it is possible to boot Ubuntu, and it would seem this question is still yet to be answered, but right now the app is seemingly only able to boot a Debian d. . .

You may have heard that NoDo will become public on May 24th, but you can be sure that Microsoft is not thinking about releasing this for your beloved HD2. Now, thanks to XDA member YukiXDA, who saw many members waiting for NoDo, presents the first version of a guide that explains how to get the update by yourself, without relying on others to release something.
The guide is very complete and touches upon topics such as what you need to get started, changing the SYS, OEM packages, building your ROM, and more. Please make sure that you know what are you doing before proceeding because it´s a delicate process, and if you can contribute to this guide in some way, please do so.

It seems like it was just yesterday when the dump for the HTC Sensation was posted in our boards (in fact, it was 2 days ago, but who keeps track of these things?) Just yesterday, the first booting port appeared in the Desire HD section. Devs all around XDA are scrambling to get functional ports in each respective section. The next successful port of this Rom is has been accomplished in the HD2 section. XDA member imilka has a working Rom for this great device. Needless to say, there are many non-functional features such as the fact that the camera is broken (go figure). However, unlike the Desire HD, this one seems to have a lot more going for it, like the fact that all radios seem to be functional and EGL graphics, while a . . . READ ON »

Whether you have religious motives or not to celebrate Easter, one can only help but to wonder what to do in order to get into the whole spirit, particularly if you have children. Well, if that was the case, your prayers have been heard because XDA member lnando84 has prepared a theme for Sense for Windows Mobile devices equipped with Cookie’s Home Tab 2.0. The theme includes Easter eggs for the different icons, bunnies, and as much candy and chocolate as you can swipe your finger on. There are various items to tinker with along with some very nice backgrounds. All in all, Happy Easter!
Have you tried this on your device yet? Please share some feedback if you have.
