unlock_1

Even though the HTC Sensation XL has been available since May 2011, there is still a dedicated community trying to keep the phone as up-to-date as possible. XDA Senior Member S.a.M.e.R_d released a ROM that allows XL users to enjoy the full benefits of Sense 4.1.

Currently, the ROM is on its seventh build, and the change log shows that there has been some rapid development since it first went live in December of last year. Common problems with early ROMs such as front and back facing camera issues seem to be fixed in the latest build, as well as apps that you will only find in an HTC Sense device.

S.a.M.e.R_d has also created a host of modifications that are ready to be installed on builds 6 and 7 of the ROM. Batter. . . READ ON »

Ice-Cream-Sandwich-Recipe

One of the most common questions here at XDA over the past several months has been, “When will my HTC device receive Ice Cream Sandwich?” Now, thanks to a tip from XDA Senior Member neoofoox we have our answer.

Although we previously mentioned the devices confirmed to get ICS from HTC’s blog back in March, it was only recently that HTC finally confirmed their timeline for this year’s releases. According to HTC:

What is the overall timeline of Android 4.0 updates?

More S-OFF for the Remaining HTC Devices – Sensation XL

RunnyS-OFF

If you own an HTC device, you may recall that one of the hardest things to bypass is the locked bootloader. Sure, you can unlock it by using the HTCDev web service that HTC offers for its customers. This essentially allows you to flash unsigned code such as ROMs and kernels onto these devices. But since the S-ON flag is still up, you are severely restricted as to what you can flash on your device. What if you just want to do more? Lets say that you want to roll back the latest radio upgrade that you applied because battery life was negatively impacted. The problem comes in the fact that in order to flash a radio while you have a semi-locked bootloader (with S-ON), you would need to flash the stock RUU that contains the radio in . . . READ ON »

Alternate Root Method for Sensation XL Helps Those Having Trouble

HTC Sensation XL

With phones being released the world over, the same hardware often ends up running various different firmware revisions in different regions. And if a root method wasn’t specifically tailored for your specific firmware, you may experience issues when trying to root.

For example, certain users of the HTC Sensation XL using some Asian and European firmwares cannot achieve root with the current standard rooting method. While this is definitely not the fault of the developers who initially rooted the device, it does cause some problems for our international friends looking for functional root access.

When there’s a will, there’s a way—and that’s the attitude XDA Senior Me. . . READ ON »

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.

Well, it seems that it is the time to go back to big devices, and the bigget they are, the more appealing they seem. You have likely seen he flurry of announcements regarding the Samsung Galaxy Note and the HTC Sensation XL. The first of these two is said to bridge the gap between tabs and phones due to it having a larger screen but not making it big enough to qualify as a tab. It does carry some impressive specs on it though.

On the other hand, we get the Sensation XL by HTC. This is yet another behemoth of a device with a screen that is considerably larger than that of its closest relative, the HTC Sensation. Another interesting bit regarding this device is the fact that it carries a single core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. . . . READ ON »

A Few Minutes With the Galaxy Nexus And HTC Sensation XL At The London International Technology Show

IMG_1259

So, I popped over to the London International Technology Show today over at the Excel centre in East London to have a nose around and see if anything interesting was showing.

Although the show was heavily custom PC based, there were a few phones around including the new Google flagship phone, the much hyped Nexus Prime (or Samsung Galaxy Nexus) and HTC’s latest flagship Android device, the HTC Sensation XL.

Given that there are only a handful of the Nexus Primes floating around the country and only one on show here, I took the opportunity to grab it whilst I could and have a quick look. The device features a 4.65 inch 1280 x 720 Super Amoled display and dual core Cortex A9 processor but even with these impressive . . . READ ON »
