Not too long ago, we brought you news that allowed HTC EVO 4G LTE users to customize their bootloaders. The process was pretty cool, allowing users to make their bootloader look however they want—including making it look unhacked. After the initial project was released, users clamored for this to be made available to more devices. The requests were heard and responded to. Now, the plugin has been made available to make the bootloader customizer for a number of HTC devices.
The process for a developer to port this is not hard. XDA Recognized Contributor regaw_leinad, who developed the application and plugin, takes a time out from the stags (yes, that’s really him) to explain how:
it’s basically all written, they just need to fill in the values for their hboot, and embed the hboot.img into the exe. I already have a placeholder for the hboot.img and android-info.txt so a drag and drop over them should keep it embedded.
Regaw_leinad is also creating the application for the supported devices, but wanted to release the plugin first so users had a chance to get it sooner. The current list of supported HTC devices include:
While the list is quite large, one must keep in mind that not all of these devices have S-Off, and users must have S-Off in order to actually use this application. To get started, visit the original thread.
It seems that the infamous Gingerbread CM7 rom keeps on making its way through the world of mobile devices. Recently, the Epic 4G received the honor of joining the group of devices capable of running this rom. Now, thanks to the efforts of XDA member KalimochoAz, one of the first Android devices joins the CM7-GB club. This is a full featured rom, with most features working right out of the box, including but not limited to camera and FM radio. A slew of options and features are available that will make any CM regular user feel right at home in this new rom, such as the ability to undervolt and overclock.
Needless to say, there may be some bugs present, but aside from that, the port seems to be fully functional. If you own a Tattoo, please take this new port for a ride and leave some feedback for the dev if you find any bugs.
- Overclocked kernel
- Undervolted kernel
- Governor available at cyanogen menu. You don’t need SetCPU, so configure it.
- Last codes from CyanogenMod Gingerbread
- You can take pictures. ( no preview working. The rest works 100% )
- SD can be used as a boot pen drive.
- FM Radio works

You can find more information in the port thread.
