One of the biggest possible hacks for most current Android devices is the ability to completely remove security flags from the bootloader. Most companies these days will give you some way to unlock your device’s bootloaders, but many are simply partial unlocks, while others are entirely not unlockable. HTC is one such company that offers what is known as a “developer unlock” through the htcdev service. However, as stated already this is but a partial unlock, which allows you to do a few fun things like flashing custom recoveries and using them to flash new ROMs. This is good, but it is quite limited, and you must have access to a PC to use fastboot commands in order to do more. This is normally ov. . . READ ON »

Most of the time when we mention Jelly Bean being released to a device, we’re usually talking about a port or something compiled from source by our developers. They happen far more often than official updates, which already don’t happen nearly often enough. For the HTC One XL, HTC decided that it felt like spreading some holiday cheer and released an update to 4.1.1 Jelly Bean.
XDA Senior Member itzsnookums posted about the update in the One XL forums, including some screen shots to demonstrate that the update is, in fact, real. In the thread, users will find a quick root method for the OTA, the OTA itself for developers to download and make ROMs from, and some other informational tidbits about th. . . READ ON »

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:

Remember the HTC One product line that we examined during our time at MWC? Now as their launch dates creep ever closer, we are giving the product family a home on our forums. All three high-end devices are poised for flagship status, fusing premium internals and top-notch build quality.
The HTC One X features a 1.5 GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, a 4.7″ 720p Super LCD2 display, 32 gigs of storage, and a full gig of RAM. The HTC One XL offers similar specs and an almost identical design, but swaps out the Tegra 3 processor for an extremely speedy 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and LTE connectivity. The HTC One S also looks appetizing, boasting the same 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 proces. . . READ ON »
