Uncanny Resembling iPhone Apps For Android

noooooo

There are plenty of iPhone looking skins out there for Android. This is for the kind of people that love to show how their Android devices can easily be turned into iPhone looking hardware and flaunting about how the inverse cannot be done. Well, if you are among these people and love to get functionality and smoothness, you should check out what XDA member amitmiz while browsing through the MIUI forums. Apparently, the member came across a rom for the Desire and the Legend, which includes enough apps to make it look and feel like an iPhone 4 right after flashing. It seems that due to popular demand, the creator of the apps decided to release them as standalone apps with no dependencies on a specific framework. Th. . . READ ON »

Tutorial: How to USB Unbrick Your Legend

the-un-brick

One of the biggest hurdles in development of pda devices (and virtually any device that has an operating system in it) is the unlocking process. Things not always go according to plan, and we end up with devices that are as useful as paperweights or bricks. Some of these “bricks” are more “bricked” than others as they cannot be returned to life by simply doing a few tricks. In fact, in many cases, some of these full bricks tend to be irreparable or only reparable via hardware manipulation (JTAG).

The “semi-bricks” normally don’t go past a certain point after booting, but these can be repaired by following certain steps. For the HTC Legend, it seems that it was a common. . . READ ON »

Live Wallpaper (OpenGL Support) Hack for the HTC Legend

i8s7ux1i3pvd

The HTC Legend, out of the box, doesn’t support the Live Wallpaper feature that can be found on the Nexus One, the Desire, or the EVO 4G. XDA developer rodigezstyle however created a hack, which enables this great looking feature. The hack only works for rooted HTC Legends, and only experienced users should try this. If you’re new to Android development,  please try to search and read first to avoid making costly mistakes. Installation must be done via recovery mode, so you actually have to flash the hack to your device.

htc-legend-front-back-side

Today, HTC released a new firmware update for the HTC Legend. It’s updated to version 2.03.403, and the new firmware seem to offer a lot of cool new things:

  • New version of Quickoffice
  • Battery life improvement
  • Improved performance
  • Multitouch for Google Maps (!)
  • New Radio

There will probably be some more changes, but these are the few XDA member miguelsantos1979 listed up for us.
The FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) update is also downloadable to flash from the PC, and is now available in the Legend forums. There isn’t much information available about this new update yet, but we expect to see more feedback soon. A goldcard might be required to flash it.

We’ll keep you updated as more information b. . . READ ON »

New Forum Added for HTC Desire and Legend

legend

At Mobile World Congress HTC announced two new Android devices, the Desire and Legend. The Desire is similar in a lot of ways to the Google Nexus One, except that it adds more RAM, the Sense interface, and an optical trackball. The Legend, on the other hand, is the successor to the HTC Hero. New is a cut-from-aluminum design (be sure you watch John Wong prove the device’s rigidity when he slams the Legend against the wall at the HTC Press conference at 11:37), plus more RAM, a faster CPU, and the latest version of Sense for Android. By popular request, we’ve added general forums for the HTC Legend and HTC Desire. Enjoy!. . . READ ON »
