Up, up, down, down, menu, back, power. Sound familiar? If you’ve ever used a standard Android recovery, I’m sure it does. Why is it that accessing the recovery partition on a modern, touch-screen device feels a little like entering the Konami code? Thanks to 4EXT Recovery Touch by XDA forum member madmaxx82, this is no longer the case for the HTC Sensation, Desire S, Incredible S / 2, Desire HD / Inspire 4G, and Desire Z /G2.
Making full use of the your touchscreen, EXT4 Recovery Touch allows you to accomplish all the typical Android recovery fare in a touch-friendly manner. Additionally, the recovery is extremely themeable, meaning that you can customize the recovery to your heart’s deli. . . READ ON »

As we’ve stated in the past, one of the highlights of the Android OS is how it allows you to customize almost every aspect to your every whim.

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. . . READ ON »

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 c. . .

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 pos. . . READ ON »

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.

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 . . . READ ON »
