Bootloader Customization Now Open to More S-Off HTC Devices

Bootloader Customizer

Not too long ago, we brought you news that allowed HTC EVO 4G LTE users to customize their bootloaders. The process was pretty cool, allowing users to make their bootloader look however they want—including making it look unhacked. After the initial project was released, users clamored for this to be made available to more devices. The requests were heard and responded to. Now, the plugin has been made available to make the bootloader customizer for a number of HTC devices.

The process for a developer to port this is not hard. XDA Recognized Contributor regaw_leinad, who developed the application and plugin, takes a time out from the stags (yes, that’s really him) to explain how:

Inspire 4G Audio Issues on CM7 and MIUI Using Boot Manager Resolved

HTC Inspire 4

It’s incredibly frustrating when audio doesn’t work right. As many different things we use our devices for, one of the key features in these scenarios is that they involve sound. When the audio is messed up, it can really throw off user experience, and turn what should be an a great ROM into something no one wants to use. Owners of the HTC Inspire 4G have been running into said problems recently, most notably with using Boot Manager with CM7 and MIUI. Now, there’s a fix.

The fix, released by XDA Senior Member elbermu, is actually a modified version of InspireMod, but it adds a couple of extra files to help make the audio work again. The mod is easy to install, as it’s just a recovery-flashab. . . READ ON »

1

Up, up, down, down, menu, back, power. Sound familiar? If you’ve ever used a standard Android recovery, I’m sure it does.

Runnymede Sense 3.5 Android 2.3.5 ROM On Desire HD/Inspire and Desire S

20110914093010

It seems HTC is very active this month as we have seen the announcements regarding several new Android devices such as the Bliss, the Sensation XE (Europe only for now), and Runnymede. Talking about the latter, we have interesting news.

Based on XDA Recognized Developer capychimp´s work, XDA member proxuser presents the first Runnymede Sense 3.5 Android 2.3.5 ROM for the HTC Desire S. This version of Sense 3.5 is different from what we have seen on ROMs based on the Bliss leak, which it was like a transition step into this new Sense.

This version is based on the WWE RUU 0.82.401.1 and just like with any first version, some bugs are expected. Sure we will see more devices with Runnymede ROM´s pop out on the followi. . . READ ON »

20110902123222

This has been a very busy week in terms of HTC news and to finish it, lucky owners of HTC Desire HD and Inspire can now enjoy the first custom ROM loaded with Sense 3.5. XDA Recognized Developer capychimp, responsible for bringing you the first ROM with fully working Sense 3.0, amazes us again with the latest installment of HTC’s famous Sense UI.

Interview

Without further introduction, we continue with the second part of this interview with XDA Recognized Developer capychimp; in case you missed it, part one can be found here.

orb3000: What were the main obstacles you found during the process of cooking the first Kingdom Sense 3.0 version?

capychimp: the main thing was the mic, no matter what I did I could not get non HTC apps to work, until some friendly user, who I sadly forgot the name of, gave me a hint on libaudio.so, rmk and I thought it was all ok using the one from kingdom cause of the hardware and so, but there was a slight change anyways and got fixed with changing the lib to one made for Desire HD, and then of course making things look good, but now we kinda got the hang . . .

Interview With Recognized Developer capychimp pt. 1 of 3

Interview

If you have an HTC Desire HD or Inspire 4G, surely you are aware of the great ROMs made by XDA Recognized Developer capychimp. He was one of the first Chefs presenting a Kingdom based ROM with Sense 3.0 fully working. We wanted to know a bit more on how capy made this possible, so please join us on this interview and feel free to send us any specific question you’d want us to add to the interview.

orb3000: Many thanks for your time on the interview. How did you get started with cooking?

capychimp: Well I bought a HTC Magic phone back in days, because I heard you could put the sense software from hero on it, so why pay more when you could “upgrade” so that made me google how to, which lead me to the unlock for rooting it. . . READ ON »

snap20110613175615

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 »
