Unofficial CM10 Lands on the MyTouch 4G

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...

Well HTC, You Put Up a Good Fight–Juopunutbear S-OFF for Most of HTC’s 2011 Lineup

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...

Desire HD, G2, Desire Z, and MyTouch 4G Froyo Downgrade

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...

MyTouch 4G Tear Down Guide

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...

Bliss Ported To myTouch 4G

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...

Create and Compile Your Own MyTouch 4G Roms with Ubuntu

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...

Want to Learn How to Customize Your MyTouch 4G? Here’s How…

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...

Fix for PSX4Droid Lag Identified

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...

MyTouch 4G Completely Free – S-OFF for Radio Achieved

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...

And Now…. MyTouch 4G Joins the PermRoot Club

It seems that it's been quite a day for HTC Android devices in XDA. Not 1, 2, but 3 of HTC's newest devices have been successfully permanently rooted. The latest addition being the MyTouch 4G. According to this guide posted by XDA member grankin01, the root method seems to be rather similar to the one for the G2 and the HD. They all use a temp root (Visionary) by XDA member paulobrien to gain partial access to the device after...
