LG G2x Gets CM10-Based ROM, Pure AOSP 4.1.2 ROM Compiled for HTC One X+

onex+

While the momentum on Android 4.1 has slowed and focus has shifted to Android 4.2, it hasn’t stopped developers from bringing it to devices that didn’t have it before. Even if the device already has ICS or Jelly Bean, many users prefer the vanilla flavor of Android. If it doesn’t, then it’s a welcome update they’d probably never get otherwise. Two new devices have gotten AOSP Android 4.1 recently: the T-Mobile LG G2x and the HTC One X+.

XDA Forum Member adampk provided the release for the G2x. It’s based on CM10 and It’s pretty stable. Most of the major issues have been solved such as camera, hardware acceleration, and WiFi. However, there are still some issues being . . . READ ON »

First Custom ROM for the HTC One X+

HTC One X Global Front and Back2_575px

The HTC One X is an amazing device. Beautifully designed, and sporting a 1.5 GHz, quad-core Tegra 3 processor, it is the embodiment of mobile computing power for many users. Sadly, it lacked LTE, so a dual-core Snapdragon S4 version was created for US variants. Thankfully, HTC released the HTC One X+. This model sports a faster 1.7 GHz Tegra 3, a better front facing camera, LTE, and of course all the elegance of the original.

A few days ago, the One X+ was rooted. Now thanks to XDA Recognized Contributor Football, the first custom ROM for the One X+ is ready to go. Not much is currently modified, but featuring Aroma installer and bloatware removal, this custom ROM has much to offer a variety of users.

Bootloader Unlock and Root Tutorial for the HTC One X+

HTC One X+

Update: This method is causing many bricked devices. We strongly encourage holding off for the time being. As such, the link has been removed from this article.

HTC’s newest flagship phone, the HTC One X+ is a beast. It has a 4.7″ HD screen, and it packs a 1.7GHz quad-core processor. Word is that it cooks bacon too. There is a lot to like about it, and there is a lot to dislike about it, like the non-removable battery. However, one thing no one can say is that it doesn’t have root and bootloader unlock tutorials.

XDA Recognized Contributor shubhamchamaria (good luck pronouncing that one, Jordan!) has released a tutorial that helps users get their One X+ rooted and bootloader unlocked. Unfortuna. . . READ ON »

Cut ROM Transfer Time with OTA Creator

OTA creator

ROM developers create their works in a variety of ways. Some apply their mods to a given base and leave it until the next firmware update, updating only when there’s a bug found. Others update their ROMs mercilessly until every little issue is fixed and everything is perfect. In the latter case, fans of the ROM generally have to download the entire package whenever there may be a minor updates. However, there may be an easier way.

An application by the name of OTA Creator was released by XDA Senior Member thunder07. While we don’t usually promote zip wizardry unless its for learning purposes, this little application can actually be helpful to a number of ROM devs. Essentially, what it does is compare a . . . READ ON »

Modified HTC Sense 4.5 Camera for the HTC One X

Sense45Camera

It’s always fun when new software leaks and users get a chance to try something new. While other devices are having fun with their leaks, HTC One X users have a little bit of software to play with as well. It’s not Jelly Bean, which is a little sad, but it is a small taste of the next version of HTC Sense, HTC Sense 4.5, by means of its camera app. The application has also been modded to add even more features.

XDA Recognized Contributor lyapota released the modded camera APK, stating that it was based on the stock Sense 4.5 camera. In terms of UI, nothing much as changed, but there are several under the hood enhancements. These include:

The MOD add some new options to HTS Camera application.

MusicBox for HTC One X Gives Users Global Sound Control

MusicBox

Sound enhancement apps in Android are plentiful. And due to their use in OEM-provided enhancements like HTC Beats, many users have grown to expect similar experiences on all devices. Other music-based modifications have appeared in the forums, including mods that allow for equalizers and sound enhancements to be used system wide on Android phones—meaning that music isn’t the only thing affected by the changes. Ringtones, headset audio, and other system sounds are included as well.

For HTC One X, there is now an application that helps users customize the sound to their liking. MusicBox by XDA Recognized Contributor lyapota does as it claims, and is quite simple to use. Here’s th. . . READ ON »

Galaxy S III Launcher Ported to the One X

Galaxy S III launcher on ONe X

Over the last couple of generations of Android phones, there has seemingly been a battle between HTC and Samsung for Android-powered smartphone supremacy. Both sides have their fans, and both sides have their haters. Given that the specs are usually so similar, it really does come down to a matter of opinion because both manufacturers release amazing smartphones. So if you wanted to sample one’s software on the other, there’s no harm in that. Now, HTC One X users can try out the latest Samsung TouchWiz Launcher.

XDA Forum Member Ppain ported the launcher to the One X. While there are alternatives out there, this version was made specifically for the One X so users should see much fewer issues than po. . . READ ON »
