According to some Sensation owners, there is an issue with music playback cutting out, or songs skipping back and forth and pausing randomly while on headphones. XDA member zmfl worked out a simple solution to correct the aforementioned problem, which occurs once headphones come in contact with the metal, you may not be aware until some months of use when the isolating paint starts to come out. The method is as simple as placing a small piece of isolating tape to avoid metal contact which causes the malfunction.

Let´s try to figure out if this is a design issue, in which case our HTC friends must be alerted, or perhaps only some isolated cases due to hard usage…Do you have this problem with your HTC Sensation? If so, please let us know your comments, surely they will be heard on Asia ;)

Thanks for reading.

I know that it has been a few weeks already, but we finally have green light to keep on going with our exclusive series of security holes on HTC’s latest devices. In case you just tuned in on the whole issue, we will be talking about vulnerabilities found on HTC handsets across the globe, particularly on the EVO family of devices as well as some of the newer ones like the HTC Sensation and Kingdom. XDA Recognized Developer TrevE has been doing a fantastic job in uncovering the holes one by one, and after much testing, he found some rather interesting results of things that could easily be obtained from your device(s) due to pieces of code inside of the manufacturer’s handsets that are exclusively in charge of collecting data and information about you, your usage, and many other things that you don’t want to see floating around on the internet. We are happy to report that HTC got their act together with the first vulnerability and got rid of the code responsible for the threat (htcloggers.apk).

As it was agreed between TrevE and HTC, our dev has been giving HTC head starts (5 working days) on virtually all issues before publicly disclosing them. Well, HTC has been making good use of their time for issue #2 as they are currently working towards a solution, but we will go ahead and let you know what this one is about. Those of you who enjoy the speeds of WiMax on their 4G enabled devices are doing so with an inherent risk. It turns out that WiMax is even more open than the HTC logger app. The more technical details are basically that an attacker who gains control over this can potentially manipulate data connectivity and to go even as far as being able to completely reprogram your device’s CDMA parameters remotely! This is done through two open ports that basically require no authentication and just as before, the only thing required for a malicious app to do anything is INTERNET permission. The other interesting thing that came out of this discovery is that apparently you can also send commands to the radio via the WiMaxmonitoring port, and sending a single coma can create an “out of bounds range exception” basically crashing your device. Here is a more detailed explanations of the whole thing:

——————————————————————————

Vulnerability: Android Security Elevation/Wimax Information Leak/Out of Bounds Crash
Products Affected: Any HTC device with wimax services running on ports 7773/7774/7775/7776
Vulnerability reported By: TrevE
——————————————————————————
Attached is a proof of concept showing manipulating wimax data connectivity.  Reading will only be demonstrated, but if someone was clever a few different attacks could be performed from stealing below information, to reprogramming with bogus/destructive values, possibly MITM data connections and more. WimaxMonitoring port also is able to crash the device if a comma is sent, it creates an index out of range exception.  The following services are able to be read and written by a malicious app with only permission INTERNETnetstat:
tcp        0      0 ::ffff:127.0.0.1:7775   :::*                    LISTEN      4327/system_server
tcp        0      0 127.0.0.1:7776          0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN      4230/wimaxDaemonsystem_server (port 7775) is a Wimax Monitoring socket. Not all commands are known at this time outside of:

Now, according to TrevE there are a few things that simply stand out as big “Why”‘s in here. Why is there a need for a WiMax monitoring port that can gather every single bit of information about your device and that can easily grant access to the device? This monitoring port also can check what you are running on your device (release keys) and finally it can check on the tethered state of the device. Secondly, and while this could be a simple coincidence, the timing from Sprint to limit the previously unlimited 4G seems a little odd. There could be a correlation between the existence of this reporting port to the usage of 4G in the network, which if TRUE, would mean that Sprint has been playing rather dirty all along, all that while putting our privacies at risk.

Well folks, there you have it. The holes in the different areas seem to have rather large implications if they are not taken care of soon enough. That being said, we have always been a proactive bunch when it comes to fixing broken code. Let’s get our heads together to ensure that HTC gets it done right the first time around, and as an added bonus for HTC, TrevE has been kind enough to provide a patch that completely eliminates this, which can be found here. Also, here is a description if you would rather apply this by hand:

To use edit init.shooter.rc to appear as below (or wherever binaries are started in ramdisk) and manually start them when you are going on 4g with attached app. 
———————-
service wimaxDaemon /system/bin/wimaxDaemon
   user root

And remember, there are still more vulnerabilities to come, so please stay tuned for more.

sensation

It seems that Sensation owners have had a few issues since purchasing this brand new offering by HTC. According to several reports across the web, the device in question seems to have problems with the touchscreen which start manifesting within a week or so after use. Certain areas of the screen become unresponsive with no apparent reason behind it. After a lot of testing and trial and error, the faulty screen was attributed to the ground to the device’s body coming lose and thus causing static electricity build up, which ends up affecting the screen. Thankfully, XDA member zmfl found a solution that would possibly fix your issues if you are indeed experiencing these problems. Keep in mind that it is possible that your particular issues are being caused by other defects. But all in all, it may be worth a shot.

Please read everything carefully and post your feedback and results so that others can follow the correct steps if they need some tweaking.

The issue addressed here is related to a small silver pin located on the back of the phone (pictures below). That damn thing is the screen’s “grounding” connection to the back cover (more about that in abrown0809′s post here). In time (one week approx.) the pin starts loosing proper contact to the cover, and the screen becomes unresponsive. This is either due to the cover getting loose, or because the pin isn’t built the way it should be (thanks HTC). You might also experience this issue after installing an aftermarket battery (Anker, Chichitec, etc.), since they are usually thicker. A thicker battery could easily separate the back cover from the pin.

So, you just bought a Sensation and just when you get it on your hands, HTC announces an update. Well, don´t worry because XDA Recognized Developer mike1986. just cooked a new ROM based on the Sensation XE with Beats Audio technology, and moreover it comes overclocked to 1.5 GHz with real dual core support.

Other nice stuff included is the improved Andreno200 configuration, it has enabled GPU UI rendering, SD Card speed tweak, battery auto-calibration, a data partition special speed tweak, and the 3D Engine was overclocked from 266.6 MHz to 320 MHz.

Give it a try and let the developer know about your experience by leaving your feedback.

cyanogen-mod-7-01

If there is one thing that is real about Android is that there is enough variation to please most people out there. Some people just flat out refuse to use Sense in their devices and prefer lighter roms such as AOSP. As many of you know, the most famous one in this category is CyanogenMod, which works with a wide variety of devices. Thanks to the efforts of XDA Recognized Developer persiansown, the HTC Sensation has been added to this ever growing list of devices. The rom is still in initial stages but it is quite usable according to the dev. There are, however, some bugs which could potentially put some people off from it until the bugs are fixed.

Please ensure that you have a rooted device and that you read the entire OP to avoid any potential difficulties. Last but not least, please leave some feedback for the dev just in case you run into bugs.

The current buglist:
-Recording 1080p video for a couple minutes causes a soft reboot

-Misc minor scaling issues
-Skype requires a speaker toggle for audio to work correctly
-Small issue where wifi calling FCs on boot for EU Sensations. This will be fixed.
-Bluetooth headset is untested because no one on the team has one. I don’t know if it is a bug or not.

HTC Responds Once Again…

September 13, 2011   By:

privacy

A couple of weeks ago, you may remember that we posted an official response stemming directly from HTC regarding privacy and security of data (link to previous article). Not being entirely happy with the response, XDA Recognized Developer TrevE decided to take it upon himself to dig out some more stuff regarding the apps and pieces of code that were actually doing all the collection. He came up with a rather nice list of apps, most of which he has been working on constantly to try and decipher their true purpose. Well, to make a long story short, this information got to the desks of the good people at HTC and they decided to try and generate a response to these new concerns. Without further ado, HTC’s official response:

The most important of HTC’s core goals is to provide consumers with the best possible experience on their devices. We live by the principle that our best work is never good enough, and we continually strive to learn more about how to delight the customers that use HTC devices.

 

One of the most effective and statistically accurate ways for us to learn how to improve is through the depersonalized and permission-based collection of error and usage data from consumers’ phones. Each member of the HTC community who is willing to contribute this data in a depersonalized mannerhelps all members of the HTC community enjoy a better experience. 

 

HTC values our customers’ privacy and ability to make informed choices about data collection and sharing. For HTC’s own software, our policy is to provide notice and choice and to ensure that anypersonal information collected is appropriately protected. The protection of this data is our obligation and we take the trust you put in us to learn from that data very seriously.

 

HTC Software:

Tell HTC is an optional feature that people can choose to activate or not.  If you choose to activate Tell HTC and help us improve the products and services that you and other members of the HTC community use, we collect depersonalized error and usage data from the device and use the data to improve HTC products and services. Some of these improvements may be delivered to your device in the form of a software update and others will be delivered in future HTC products and services.  We do not share or collect any content of communications or any personally identifying information such as names, phone numbers, or e-mail addresses of customers or their friends and contacts using Tell HTC.   

 

If you choose not to participate in Tell HTC, we will not store error or usage data on the device and will not send data to Tell HTC servers.  Tell HTC can be enabled or disabled at any time in the Settings Menu, under “About Phone”à“Tell HTC”. 

 

HTC App Usage Statistics is a service on the device that powers the “Frequent Apps” feature, which is reached by tapping the checkerboard in the lower left-hand corner of the home screen. This service shares data with the Tell HTC service on the device.  However Tell HTC will not store or report the data if the user has chosen not to participate in Tell HTC.

 

HTC Check-in periodically contacts HTC FOTA (Firmware-Over-The-Air) services to check if new software is available. This service is set to “Automatic” by default, but can be changed to “Manual” by the user in the Settings Menu. When “Checking In” with the HTC FOTA Servers, HTC Check-in will send the device serial number (IMEI) and current software version.  This is needed to determine if the specific device has new software available.  This service is not connected to Tell HTC.

 

Third-Party Software:

It is also important to note that the phones we build are a compilation of not only software and services from HTC, but also from third parties. These third-party applications and services, such as Carrier IQ (CIQ) and Google Check-in, serve to further improve the customer experience and have their own privacy policies. We encourage consumers to understand the specific policies of any application or service that is enabled on their device.

It certainly looks like after the locked bootloader incident, HTC has decided to take a turn for the better and try to cooperate with developers a lot more, which is why you are seeing a lot more public appearances from them than ever before. Please keep in mind that this is a massive, multinational corporation with tons of legal blocks, trade secrets, etc. So, probably expecting a direct response from them, directly addressing code concerns may not be as viable as some people would think. Despite all this, they were able to provide a little bit of insight onto the first 3 services, which is a start in my opinion. If you read carefully the last paragraph of their response, you will notice something that we have covered before here in the Portal. There seem to be things in the code that are mandated by the carriers themselves and as such, HTC (or any manufacturer) may have little to no power to opt out of them.

Well, whether it is or not the exact answer that we were expecting, I would personally like to thank HTC for looking into our community and paying attention to their customer’s concerns. We certainly look forward to a more robust and technical response regarding the things that they do have control on.

It’s hard to deny that the HTC Sensation is a good looking device: HTC’s instantly recognisable taste in hardware styling combined with a revamped Sense interface running on a qHD resolution, 4.3″ screen really make for a treat to the eyes. Yet, in some places the device doesn’t seem as aesthetically polished as you might expect.

XDA member and Sensation owner binarybulge was disappointed to find that the navigation bar running along the bottom of the Sense homescreen just wasn’t up to scratch for the phone’s high-res display, with incongruously jaggy lines and a lack of transparency. To fix this, the developer replaced the stock Sense skins with a customised, fixed and obviously much better looking navigation bar graphic.

If you’ve also noticed the problem and would like a way around it, hit up the development thread for more information and download links.

517px-Dual_Core_Generic.svg

Do you know how dual core processors work? They contain two central processing units integrated into one circuit, just think of it as a four-lane highway as opposed to a two-lane one. Dual-core processors can handle twice as much data without making the processors themselves any faster.

XDA Recognized Developer mike1986. presented today the first HTC Sensation ROM capable of full dual-core support. Basically, this means that you will take full advantage of the new processor giving you more smoothness and perhaps a bit more of speed when you are multi tasking on your shinny Sensation. Moreover, the CPU is automatically over-clocked up to 1.83 GHz instead the 1.29 GHz that comes by default. Lastly, the ROM is Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread from the official HTC RUU 1.45.401.2, which includes HTC Sense 3.0.

The developer mentions that the Andreno200 has improved configuration for better quality and performance.

Let us know how this is working for you by leaving a comment.

It’s been too long, really. We all wanted this to be released a long time ago, but with HTC being HTC, it wasn’t. If you follow developments from HTC, you’ll know that they recently announced that they’ll be unlocking the bootloaders on the Sensation and EVO 3D, about months later than potentially helpful. They also recently released the kernel source code for the Incredible 2, but it would have helped for it to actually, you know, work.

At 11 AM EST, HTC made another announcement on their Twitter page stating, “Check out HTCdev.com. New SDKs, kernel source code, and the future home for our bootloader unlocking solution.”

What have we learned from this tweet? They have a new domain called HTCdev.com, on which features the new release of their OpenSense SDK, along with kernel source codes for their devices. Fantastic development, don’t you think?  Unfortunately, this is not the case.

Shortly after this announcement, our own XDA Recognized Developer supercurio tweeted asking @TeamAndIRC, “Tell me if you manage to compile #Sensation kernel from sources, fails here with msm8660_defconfig.” What have we gathered from tweet? It’s not working properly. HTC made a boo-boo.

Don’t get me wrong here, I’m happy that HTC finally pulled through and released something they said they would, especially something as fantastic as an SDK for Sense. It’s good they’re trying to get stuff right, but here’s my biggest gripe:  They’re not trying hard enough. Azrienoch says, “It’s like a billion-dollar circus, and free to watch.” He’s right. It’s surprising that a billion-dollar company can mess up this much and still be praised by those who revel in its developments as a breakthrough.

Despite these issues, I do wish HTC the best in resolving and overcoming them.  Many developers on XDA-Developers look forward to working with your SDK and kernel source code to develop unique and creative content.

XDA member kaintfm let us know some great news for all HTC lovers with newer devices out there. According to HTC´s Facebook page, the Bootloader Unlock tool will be web-based, require a valid email address, a device-specific token, and it will require your consent to void parts of the warranty. After all is said and done, you will be given a code which will unlock the phone’s bootloader permanently.

The first unlocker will be for the global HTC Sensation, followed by the HTC Sensation on T-Mobile, and finally the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint. A software update will take place before the web unlock tool goes live to prepare the devices for the unlocking process.
Phones will continue selling with their bootloaders locked for the indefinite future because of security and warranty concerns. Keep in mind that there is still no set date for the official release, so keep an eye out for more.

A few days ago, XDA member MohamedYousri told us about the latest achievement by the alliance between AlphaRevX & Unrevoked. This tool, called Revolutionary, is the first major collaboration between two development groups. The term revolutionary was due because of some of the mechanisms by which we gain S-OFF. This new tool allows S-Off and NAND write access to a whole slew of modern HTC phones:

Revolutionary currently supports the following Android phones and HBOOT versions:
HTC Desire (bravo) 0.93.0001
HTC Desire CDMA (bravoc) 1.06.0000
HTC Wildfire (buzz) 1.01.0001
HTC Aria (liberty) 1.02.0000
HTC Incredible S (vivo) 1.09.0000 and 1.13.0000
HTC Droid Incredible 2 (vivow) 0.97.0000
HTC Desire S (saga) 0.98.0000 and 0.98.0002
HTC View (express) 1.09.0000 and 1.13.0000
HTC Flyer (flyer) 1.10.0000
HTC Sensation (pyramid) 1.17.0006, .0008, .0011 and .0012
HTC Evo 3D (shooter) 1.30.0000 and 1.40.0000

Revolutionary will permanently unlock NAND write protection by default on the following phones:
HTC Sensation (pyramid)
HTC Evo 3D (shooter)

So, to all the devs out there: get ready to have some fun!
Please share your experiences with the tool.

Revolutionary: S-OFF & Recovery Tool

At last, the time has come — unrevoked and AlphaRev have come together to join our strengths and build an S-OFF tool for the next wave of phones. We’re very excited about this, and we hope that you will be too! We’ve been working on this for a while, and we’d like you, our fellow developers, to get early access, so you can build awesome applications and amazing ROMs for everyone to use. So, today, we’re releasing for you a developer preview of something that we call Revolutionary.

Revolutionary? Why the name? Well, this tool is revolutionary in a couple of ways. It’s the first major collaboration between two development groups that we know of — and in honesty, we’ve stood on the shoulders of other giants, too, in building this! It’s revolutionary in some of the mechanisms by which we gain S-OFF; we have worked quite a while to build this, and we think that we’ve come up with a robust solution. And, we’d like to think of it not just as a revolutionary tool, but as a revolutionary itself! Over the past few months, our community has successfully convinced HTC and other vendors of the need to provide unlocked bootloaders for their phones. As we build this tool out to work with the unlocked updates, we’re excited about the next wave of innovation that this tool can help spark.
Let’s get started!

Continue to the discussion thread.

alpharevx-sensation-s-off

It looks as if the mighty has fallen yet once again. This is something that has been expected for a while but it seems that we may be just days away from a full S-OFF on the Sensation’s hboot. Yes, you read correctly, the once deemed uncrackable security measure imposed by HTC on the new device line up has been cracked, and just a few days after temp root was achieved. This means that not only will you be able to get rid of bloat on your device, but you will also be able to flash custom roms and kernels. XDA member vladnosferatu shared with us earlier today a youtube video where AlphaRevX is used to achieve the awaited S-OFF on a Pyramid. These are indeed fantastic news and as it is customary for our friends at ARX, they will hold off on the release of this until the utility has been proven to be safe. As this will modify your device (breaking your warranty in the process), the devs simply need to ensure that the process is safe for mass consumption. So, please refrain from asking for ETA and patiently wait for the goodies to come, which they will.

The moment we have more information regarding this, we will certainly update you about it.

AlphaRevX – HTC Sensation (Pyramid) HBOOT 1.17.0011 S-OFF [COMING SOON]

Sunday is no longer a relaxing day in the mobile world. Just a few hours ago -at the time we were writing this article- and thanks to XDA member kurtis.austin2, we learned via HTC social channels that Senstation and EVO 3D owners will be able to unlock their bootloaders!
According to the source, We announce today that software updates to support bootloader unlocking will begin rolling out in August for the global HTC Sensation, followed by the HTC Sensation 4G on T-Mobile USA and the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint. We’re in the testing phase for the unlocking capability now, and we expect it to be fully operational by early September for devices that have received the software updates.
So, developers out there…. get ready, set, go!
This is certainly great news for all HTC fans. Keep listening to your loyal customers, HTC ;)
