POSTS TAGGED: HTC MyTouch 4G (Glacier)
Posted October 20, 2012 at 11:00 pm by Former Writer
The number of AOSP Jelly Bean releases has slowed considerably over the last few weeks. This is mostly because so many devices already have it, and not many left are truly capable of running it properly. However, there are still ports coming through now and then. One of the latest is for the HTC MyTouch 4G.
The unofficial port comes courtesy of XDA Senior Member elginsk8r. Like most early releases, it is a little unstable, but that shouldn’t scare you away from trying it if you want to see what Jelly Bean is all about. Quite a few things are working, including:
LCD Screen (Both variants)
Camera* (See below)
Currently, the camera is not f. . . READ ON »

HTC’s locking of the bootloaders during last year was nothing short of a spectacular feat. It was really a battle of the titans, where the original line-up of Sensation-like devices came with a locked bootloader, which was later unlocked and S-OFFed, only to be updated to yet another revision of the HBOOT. But the second time around, it was locked to an almost unlockable state. Having heard many complaints from the user base (and us), HTC decided to offer the olive branch and simply gave up on locking the HBOOT. In fact, they themselves provided a way to unlock this and allow the flashing of custom code on the devices (of course, your warranty flew out the window if you did). Several giants came along such as Re. . . READ ON »

The trend over the last month or so on XDA has been getting a number of devices downgraded so they can get to a bootloader that can still be unlocked with S-Off. Those devices are, of course, almost all HTC devices ever since the release of HTCDev, which unlocks the bootloader while maintaining S-On. In the march of obtaining S-Off, a few devices have already had a contingency plan in place to get users down to a software version that can be properly hacked.
XDA Forum Member Setherio has been maintaining and updating a thread for nearly a year now that allows the HTC G2 and Desire Z, the HTC MyTouch 4G and the HTC Desire HD to be downgraded to Froyo in order to then update to a rooted Gingerbread ROM. The process is quite . . . READ ON »

There are many instances where it would be preferable to fix one’s own device rather than sending it away to be fixed by the pros. One reason is that you wish to maintain your root access. Another is that perhaps you simply like your specific devices because it overclocks well. In any case, fixing a device yourself can be challenging when you don’t know what you’re doing. Thankfully, there is now a tear down guide for the HTC MyTouch 4G similar to the recently undressed HTC Titan.
XDA Senior Member repairsuniverse has produced a step by step teardown and rebuild method that will help users, tear down their phones without fear of screwing things up. Says repairsuniverse:

The Bliss fever seems to be taking over HTC devices one at a time. We have already seen ports for the most popular ones out there including the EVO 4G, the HD2, and the Desire HD. Now, it is time for T-Mobile Us customers to experience this incarnation of Sense first hand. All this is possible thanks to the efforts of XDA Recognized Developer zFr3eak who has successfully ported the build over to the myTouch 4G. Much like others of its kind, the port is far from perfect and it has some major bugs in it such as non working wifi, Bluetooth, radio, and a few others. However, graphically speaking, it is rather smooth for a first version. Just remember to read the op fully before flashing as well as remembering to back up all you. . . READ ON »

If you are into Linux (or are thinking about it) and love the idea to be able to tinker with the internals of Android roms, then you should see what XDA member gridlock32404 has prepared for MyTouch 4G owners out there. The dev has posted a very comprehensive guide for dealing with the internals or roms in a Linux environment. The guide is very well written, with short steps, and easy to follow with clear screenshots to see exactly what you need to do in case you don’t understand a step or two.
Our recommendation however, would be to read on a few things before messing with the internals of a rom. Not doing things right has the possibility of damaging your device. Please be sure that you understand the whole guide an. . . READ ON »

Congrats on getting a MyTouch 4G. You probably rooted the device the minute you got it (or the minute root became available). Now, you are left with a very fast device but would like to make it better, load cool stuff, and make it look as coolas it was probably intended. The only issue you come across is the overwhelming amount of material available on xda. Guides, instructions, several videos, etc. Tons of material available, but just scattered all over the place. Worry no more because XDA member rjhay22 has taken the time to put together an amazing guide, which contains instruction sets, links to themes, apps, and much more. On top of that, the dev provided his “personal picks” as well for theming.

You may or may not know XDA member zodttd. If you use PSX4Droid (an Playstation 1 emulator for Android), then you owe this dev a thank or two as he is the one that created this app. The emulator runs fantastically well on most devices but it has a problem. As time goes by, performance decreases (you may see FPS drops). After seeing this, zodttd decided to look into the problem and found the culprit coding for this. He has provided his findings as a guide for devs to cook this solution into their kernels and roms.
Please leave some feedback for the dev in case you find some other “oddity” in the code.

I am the author of psx4droid. It’s a PSX emulator that uses a dynarec. Due to the nature of this code I can

About a month ago, we were all overjoyed by the liberation of the Desire family, which led to the almost immediate rooting of the new MyTouch 4G (aka Glacier). The permanent root was what a lot of people were waiting for. However, this can be equated to the device being “on parole”, meaning that it is free, but only to a certain extent. Or at least this was the case until a group of devs did a full S-OFF on the Radio. XDA member grankin01 posted a very detailed guide on how to achieve this. Here is the kicker, this can truly, irreversibly, mess up your device if you are not careful. The benefits for taking the plunge?
