The march of Jelly Bean 2012 has been a massive success. With dozens of devices getting ports that at least boot and even more scheduled to get them, Jelly Bean has been like a party that everyone is invited to. Well, the fun hasn’t stopped yet. In fact, it hasn’t even appeared to have slowed down, as even more devices are getting Jelly Bean one way or another. The most recent legion of devices include the HTC One S, the Sony Xperia X10 Mini and the Sony Xperia X8.
XDA Senior Member fipsib, posted CM10 running on XDA for the One S which was developed by XDA Senior Member xkonni with help from XDA Forum Member intervigil. For the Xperia X10 Mini and X8, the JBMiniProject lays claim and includes XDA Recognized De. . . READ ON »

We’ve brought you news of camera mods being ported and released across XDA. With popular HTC devices such as the Sensation and EVO LTE receiving camera mods, it was only a matter of time before other members of HTC’s lineup including the HTC One S were given such changes.
Called ZeroCamera, the mod focuses more on video quality rather than picture quality, but includes both. Developed by XDA Senior Member zeroprobe, the mod increases video quality during 1080p recording. The result is a much cleaner, much better video experience for users.
The encoding settings available are:

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:

Just about three months ago, we brought you news that the Team Win Recovery Project had received a massive update to version 2.1. April’s release largely heralded the start of a new age in recoveries—where one would no longer have to deal with cumbersome menus, instead interacting with a very user-friendly GUI.
It wasn’t simply about the GUI either. In addition to bringing an unrivaled level of UI polish, TWRP 2.1 offered users many advanced features such as update.zip queuing, a basic file manager, and dual storage support for Nandroid backups. Additionally, TWRP added support for the open source scripting engine OpenRecoveryScript, which works in conjunction with the pr. . . READ ON »

Init.d has a special place in Android. With it, users can install scripts and mods to run at boot, and thus modify almost any aspect of the phone that they want. There are battery tweaks, performance tweaks, GPS tweaks, signal tweaks, and the list goes on and on. However for these scripts to work, the phone must first have init.d support. Typically, Ramdisks provide init.d support, but sometimes it is possible to gain init.d support without flashing a new Ramdisk, or even without altering the Ramdisk at all.
This is something that XDA Recognized Developer smokin1337 has been working on for a number of devices. With a mod called EZ InitD, smokin1337 looks to help users add init.d support easily. Additionally, the . . . READ ON »

While Ice Cream Sandwich brought with it many important and needed changes to Google’s star OS, it frustrated many users and developers because many popular tools for modifying files such as APK Tool and APK Manager didn’t always work as planned, particularly when OEM skins such as Sense 4 were added to the mix. Currently, Sense 4 is the big culprit as there is apparently a nice list of compilation errors associated with modifying its proprietary files in APK Tool and APK Manager. Thankfully, there is now an answer.

We recently brought you coverage of dual-core tweaks for the HTC EVO 4G LTE. For those who don’t remember, the modification boosted performance by forcing the device’s second core to remain on at all times. Given the performance increases seen in certain situations, you would assume that this would be ported to its sibling devices featuring the same SoC.
XDA Recognized Developer -viperboy- has done exactly this for users of the HTC One S. Once the One S users got in the action, it couldn’t possibly be long before AT&T and Rogers One X owners wanted in as well. Worry not, as -viperboy- explains:

As AROMA installer continues to increase in popularity by being featured on more and more and newer devices, it has now found its way to yet another device—the HTC One S. For those who don’t remember, AROMA installer allows users to pick and choose the features of a particular mod pack or ROM, and install those that are so desired.
