All-in-One Toolkit for HTC One X, One S, myTouch 4G Slide, Amaze 4G, Rezound, and Vivid

Hasoon2000 toolkit

Tool kits are often one of the most useful things a user will ever download. They usually let users efficiently perform a variety of tasks including acquiring root, installing a custom recovery, and flashing various development work ranging from ROMs to kernels. In other words, it lowers the entry cost for new users, and allows even the more experienced users to enjoy easy flashing.

Now, thanks to XDA Recognized Developer hasoon2000, there are a variety of tool kits for many HTC devices. Currently supported devices include the HTC myTouch 4G Slide, HTC One S, HTC One X, HTC Amaze 4G, HTC Rezound, and the HTC Vivid.

For some users, this tool kit is not exactly a new experience. This is the tool was recently used in . . . READ ON »

HTC Rezound Gets Amon Ra Recovery Fix After S-Off

HTC Rezound

New development often means that older work may have issues. New firmware can break root, for instance, and new ROM bases can make themes not work properly. Unfortunately, when a bootloader is unlocked, the recovery occasionally goes bonkers. There’s nothing quite as frustrating as not being able to restore Nandroid backups or mount your SD card from recovery when it’s something you’re used to being able to do.

For those using Amon Ra recovery on the HTC Rezound, you know what that’s like. Fortunately, there is now a fix available thanks to XDA Senior Member carm01, who posted a couple of fixes that should fix the Amon Ra Recovery problems and set everyone right.

The fix for the Na. . . READ ON »

Leaked ICS Radios for S-Off HTC Rezound Users

htc-rezound1

Flashing a radio can greatly affect your device. It can improve signal strength, improve data speeds, or even help with things like call quality and alleviating dropped calls. On some devices which have radio bugs on release, such as complete loss of signal, a radio flash can alleviate these issues and restore stability to signal. However, and especially on HTC devices, a bad radio flash can easily result in a very expensive paperweight.

With that in mind, XDA Forum Member nolimitzr2 has posted a thread with the latest radios for the HTC Rezound, pulled from the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich RUUs. The radios, which users can install using pre-compiled PH98IMG.zip files in the bootloader or individuall. . . READ ON »

Get Engineering HBoot For Gingerbread on Rezound After S-Off

Hboot SOff

Acquiring S-Off is the Holy Grail of all root for HTC device owners. With S-Off, users can flash unsigned firmware images and obtain permanent root. For those who would like to go even further, you can always flash the Engineering HBoot, or ENG HBoot for short. This offers even more fun, such as extended Fastboot commands. For many HTC owners, flashing the ENG HBoot after obtaining S-Off is a priority. This can now be done on the HTC Rezound thanks to XDA Recognized Developer con247, who has posted a thread allows users to have the ENG HBoot, with all associated perks.

As with any HBoot installation, be sure you read everything very carefully. Says con247:

If you try to S-ON the device with this HBOOT on it, it w

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

Amaze4G_SOFF

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 »

HTC Rezound Auto Unlocker Makes Unlocking Faster and Easier

Bootloader Unlock

While it is very convenient to be able to unlock any HTC device on the HTCdev.com website, it is still quite a difficult task for some who either just can’t get it to work right or aren’t as Android savvy as they’d like to be. It is for these people that most developers will create an auto-unlock or auto-root tool. So even those who don’t have the time to learn Android can share in the rooted magic.

XDA Forum Member fenguepay has done just this with an auto unlocker tool for the HTC Rezound. The tool, once run, will automatically unlock the bootloader, giving users the ability to flash ROMs, flash tweaks, and any number of other things. The tool itself is still in beta mode, so don’t be s. . .

Misctool Gives HTC Users Power to Read/Write Main Version

HTC Rezound

HTC users occasionally have to use some interesting methods to flash what they want onto newer devices. From risky methods of downgrading their bootloader to applications that have to flash kernels, device hacking isn’t always straight forward. To help make this a bit easier, XDA Recognized Developer drellisdee has posted a tool that allows HTC owners to look at, and change, their Main Version.

The tool allows users to lower their Main Version to allow the flashing of older RUUs, which could help downgrade Android versions and HBoots if used properly. While originally intended for the HTC Rezound, this tool is compatible with other emmc-based HTC devices starting with the G2 / Desire-Z, a. . .

Make Your Own ICS Boot Animations for the HTC Rezound

HTC Rezound

It’s a well known fact that Android users generally love theming. Let’s face it, while they’re very appreciated and important, battery saving kernel modules just don’t fan the flames of fanboyism as much as a user’s favorite theme does. And many users identify with their devices more when their favorite theme is up and running.

One aspect of theming that adds to the overall feel of a device is the boot animation. Much like a job interview, the boot animation is the first real interaction a user has with any Android device and, of course, it’s a little easier dealing with a boot-loop when you actually enjoy the boot animation.

HTC Details its Ice Cream Sandwich Update Plan

blog.htc

The billion dollar question right now in the Android world is whether or not your device will receive Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. As they so humorously put it:

Few innovations have improved upon ice cream as much putting it between two cookies and making a sandwich. Which is why we all want Ice Cream Sandwich! Ok, that’s not the real reason, but we’re all excited about Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, coming to HTC.

While there is constant speculation as to which devices will be added to the ICS list, not very many firm answers are to be found. Luckily, HTC has just released a public statement as to which devices are slated to receive Google’s latest tasty treat.
