Game Changers – HTC Kaiser

kaiser

The HTC Kaiser. Before I could get it, I remember I wanted it. I used to keep looking at the full specifications’ page at gsmarena and staring at the specs of it in utter disbelief. It was aesthetically pleasing, it had an awesome camera, and it had a slide out keyboard. And if that wasn’t enough the screen tilted upwards. This feature was a major selling point of the phone.

The first rumours of the handset arrived late 2006. Whispers of GPS were swirling making people want more info. Gradually, as news arrived that it was realized that this was a flagship device. HTC was giving a lot of love to the advertising and releases of shots.

The specs by today’s standard weren’t amazing bu. . . READ ON »

Game Changers – HTC Home

htc-home-plugin

The recent XDA TV article by Azrienoch & cajunflavouredbob reminded me of the old days, when the HTC logo looked like this. Because of this, I was reminded of some of the old things released that really changed how we use and view our devices and also changed what we came to expect from the device manufacturers.

The first game changer I want to look at is HTC Home. This was the first incarnation of what would eventually come to be HTC Sense. It ran on windows mobile as a plug-in for the home screen and instead of displaying widgets that can be freely moved around to suit the users needs, it displayed one of 5 or 6 things on half the screen.

The first was the “home” tab, this displayed a large digital style clo. . . READ ON »

Atools: Do Everything Needed to Prepare Your Android Rom for Vogue/Kaiser/Polaris

atools

There are many parts in an Android rom port package. You have to make sure that everything is properly set up or you will end up with a non booting rom. With this in mind, XDA member l1q1d has taken on the task to make a one stop application to help you prep everything in your zImage, default, and even your nbh prior to flashing. The best part is that it is written in Python, which makes it unique due to cross platform compatibility (Mac, Linux, or Windows).

If you feel the need to modify the rom to suit your needs, take the app out for a spin and make sure that you report any bugs back to the dev.

This is a preliminary release of atools. With this application you can:

  • download and edit latest nbh
  • download latest zImage and configu

NBH Editor Updated to Version 4.0

NBH Editor2

A while back, we posted an article that talked about an application for putting your personal touch on the Android NBH files prior to flashing. This was created by XDA member loserskater and since then, he has released a few updates with the latest being 4.0. Aside from the list of updates that he has implemented over the last few months, this latest incarnation of the program was completely re-written using Python, which according to the dev, should make the app much better regardless of the system being used.

The dev mentions that he is looking for feedback, so make sure that you drop by the thread and leave some feedback.

Updates:
(8-29-10)4.0
Thanks to l1q1d for lighting the fire and doing the initial coding.

New Version of Super Froyo for Vogue Released

incubus

After a period of hiatus, an update for the Android port for Vogue/Kaiser/Polaris made by XDA member incubus26jc has just been released. As with every version of this port, the update brings a myriad of updates and fixes as well as the usual smoothness, stability, and speed that you can only expect in these ports. RLS13 features the boot image of the Droid eye, but with a twist… incubus26jc has rendered it green, so while it looks different than usual, it goes very well with the rest of the theme that he used for it. If you have one of the aforementioned devices and are itching to use Android, give it a go.

Make Your Own Android Vogue NBH with NBH Creator

Screenshot-NBH Creator

XDA member mnjm9b brings us a nice little tool that will allow us to put our own roms together for the Android port for the HTC Vogue. The tool can also be used by the HTC Kaiser and the Polaris as well since they share the same ports. The utility is for Ubuntu but the dev says that it may work for other Linux distros as well. You need to have the zImage that you want to flash onto the device. It is really a simple utility to use and can help aspiring cooks to compile their builds in a seamless manner.

NBHCreator v 0.2b

NBHCreator makes the nbh file for flashing android to nand.

This utility works for Vogue, Polaris and Kaiser.

Prerequisites:
1. you need to be running Ubuntu (other Debian distros may work, give it a try) NBHCreato

Send Free SMS via Way2SMS

sshot003

This application, created by xda member aman11dhanpat, will let you include a php script into your device whenever you access the website way2sms.com. This will act as a SMS application for your device, but will send the messages via data rather than via your provider’s SMS service, saving you money in the process. The app was tested on an Indian free SMS web service provider.
Even though this is the first version of this tool, we can expect some improvements for upcoming versions.
