HTC Sensation Tweak Tutorial for RAM and Performance Enhancement

HTC Sensation

Rooting a device isn’t just about flashing the snazzy ROMs with fun themes and uninstalling the dreaded bloatware. Some users root their devices to get access to the tweaks and mods that improve the overall performance. For many devices there are quite a few options including mods that increase signal strength, GPS accuracy and some tweaks that just make the phone faster and smoother. For many users, making their phone run as smooth as possible is a number one priority.

For HTC Sensation users, there is now an opportunity to do just that. XDA Recognized Developer memnoc has developed a few tweaks that were originally for a ROM, but it was soon discovered that the mods can be applied to any base, and therefor. . . READ ON »

Super Utility

Tool kits and utility applications do most of the work bridging the gap between the not-so-tech savvy and Android development. While varying in functionality and polish, the tools get the job done with minimal effort, and allow the average user to easily experience all their Android phone has to offer.

handphone

Android devices have sported dual-core processor for quite some time, but developers are still finding ways to tweak the cores on various devices to give a more performance-oriented experience without adversely affecting battery life. HTC Sensation owners can now partake thanks to an elaborate script that optimizes their dual-core experience by XDA Senior Member iba21:

Get More Control of Your HTC Sensation With TakeControl

take control

Getting control of the CPU core(s) in your device has been all the rage recently. And with the ability to turn cores on or off as well as over and under clocking them, users have the ability to fine tune their CPUs nicely.

While most recent HTC CPU control modifications have centered around the flagship One lineup, it was only a matter of time for things to pop up for older but still popular devices such as the HTC Sensation. XDA Senior Member xXxPachaxXx has released a mod that is strikingly similar to other dual-core mods available. He also gives all due credit to Recognized Developer -viperboy- for his previously mentioned work.

The mod is set up a bit differently from -viperboy-‘s popular mod from th. . . READ ON »

ICS WiFi Calling for T-Mobile Sensation Running Stock and AOSP

WiFi Calling

One of the best features of many T-Mobile phones is the ability to call people via WiFi. Why would you want to do this? Well, mostly because it doesn’t rely on your sometimes finicky mobile connection, instead using WiFi to place calls. Most can imagine why T-Mobile users who had it previously would be a little upset over not having it work properly on their favorite ROM.

HTC Sensation users have faced this problem. Luckily, however, it has been solved for both AOSP and stock ICS ROMs. The apk was modded and re-released by XDA Senior Member bigmoew for users to have in case their ROMs didn’t already come with it and for developers to include in their ROMs should they want to include it.

HTC ICS Update Schedule Released

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?
The majority of devices will receive upgrades in June and July 2012 and we expect to finish upgrades in August 2012 for all announced devices.

When will my device get the Android 4.0 upgrade?

HTC Unbricking Project Exits Beta, Delivers Final Release

HTC Unbricking Project

For owners of many HTC device such as the HTC Amaze 4G, EVO 3D, MyTouch 4G Slide, Sensation, and the Vivid/Raider/Velocity, this has been a long time coming. A fully functional method to restore a device from a full brick is a pretty big deal. This then gives users more confidence when performing potentially risky tasks such as HBoot updates, ROM flashes, or turning S On.

XDA Senior Member dexter93, along with a host of other developers, has finally released this project after several months of beta testing and waiting. This is great news for many HTC users who have bricked devices under certain circumstances, and is much better news for users who unintentionally—or even intentionally—brick thei. . . READ ON »

Updated Adreno 220 ICS GPU Driver Speeds Up 2D Rendering

benchmark

With Ice Cream Sandwich quickly spreading across Android devices like wildfire right now, new drivers for the Adreno 220 GPU found in the Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 have surfaced. These drivers can potentially lead to improved 2D UI rendering performance in ICS and, of course, increased benchmark scores.

XDA Senior Member gjcamp has produced recovery-flashable update.zip files that work across multiple devices with this hardware. Every phone running the Adreno 220 from the HTC Evo 3D to a couple variants of the Samsung Galaxy S2 may be able to benefit from these drivers, and there are currently seven different devices for which gjcamp has created threads. In his words:

Post-Update Root Tutorial for the HTC Sensation

HTC Sensation

With every new Android firmware release, discussion almost immediately turns to whether or not it can be rooted. Most already rooted users will simply wait for a pre-rooted update in order to not be left without root access. However, some users accidentally update and lose root. Others yet purchase a new device preloaded with the newest firmware and need to achieve root. Sometimes, the firmware update is a whole new iteration of Android, which means it needs an entirely new root method.

This is the case on the HTC Sensation, which has recently been updated to Ice Cream Sandwich. Luckily, XDA Forum Member theSnakeX has put up the method for unrooted ICS users to root their devices should they be in the awkward . . . READ ON »
