HTC Titan Receives WP7.8 Port

htc-titan-mango7.8

Looks like all the Windows Phone 7 devices are getting a second wind after their ill fate was announced. Ever since last week when the mysterious 7.8 leak dropped on XDA, people have been going around like crazy, cooking ROMs and updating their devices to ensure that they are not easily tossed aside by the impending release of WP8. Just this past Friday, the mythical HTC HD2 received its very first port of the brand new operating system. One by one, WP7 owners are rejoicing in the fact that their devices will get an extended life span (no thanks to Microsoft). When we looked at the big bad boy, the HTC Titan, we realized that this device was also blessed with a port, and XDA Forum Member Azzelio brought it to light.

Debranding and HSPL Guide for the AT&T HTC Titan

HTC Titan

Hacking a Windows Phone 7 is usually a little bit harder than hacking most Android phones. Where most Android users have a whole development kit worth of tools to tap into—not to mention the various OEM tools such as Odin or RSD Lite—Windows Phone 7 users have fewer options at their disposal. In some cases, tried and tested methods may not even work. When they do, however, the burden is lifted for those who want to make their devices truly their own.

AT&T HTC Titan owners now have a guide pieced together by XDA Forum Member pbp8ntballer to help users debrand their devices and install HSPL (Hard Secondary Program Loader). The guide pulls information and methods from a variety of credited place. . . READ ON »

Final Frontier – Check! DFT Releases HSPL for Second Generation HTC WP7 Devices

HSPL_WP7S_LOGO3

DFT (Dark Forces Team) has been around our site for quite some time—since the days of Windows Mobile. More often than not, whenever a post of theirs appears on our site, something awesome is about to happen to a device. For instance, back in February they were successfully able to grant HSPL unlock goodness to the first generation HTC WP7 devices such as the Mozart, Schubert, etc. After Microsoft released the Mango update (WP 7.5), lots of things changed—not only in the OS part but also in other areas of the devices. HTC spent a monumental amount of effort making sure that this time the exploits used to hack their devices were leak tight. They added things such as INTEROPLOCK, and they modified drivers . . .

HTC Titan Tastefully Undressed, Touchscreen Blushes

By now, we’ve all become familiar with the term XDA Unboxing. Thanks to fantastic work from XDA Recognized Developer AdamOutler, we have been made privy to deepest internals of various modern devices.

After an unfortunate affair involving your standard, everyday washing machine and the lovely HTC Titan, XDA Member Advocate Admin egzthunder1 found himself with a water damaged device. Turning pain into pleasure, egzthunder1 then created a guide on how to dismantle the device.

Well, due to an unfortunate incident between my Titan and a washing machine, I decided to take it apart to try and clean it (and to remove a constantly on vibrating motor). Since there is no guide for this device anywhere

Custom Chrome Backing for HTC Titan

IMG_0170 (480x360)

XDA Member Finalforce1111 shows us how to get your Titan back cover shiny with chrome by using sand paper which is used dry in grades 400, 240, 120, and 40g.

The whole process takes about two hours. Be sure to follow the instructions provided as the order of the abrasive papers is important to deliver a well finished polishing.

I have “Chromed” the Cover of my Titan and have made some pics during the procedure.

The whole process took me 2:20 hours and I must admit that I like the result but check it out!!

I used 400, 240, 120, and 40 gr Paper, to make the finish I used the 40, the others you can choose what you like most, 400 gr takes longer to remove the color but is more accura

HTC Titan and HTC Radar Forums Added

logo

It has been quite a while since anyone (manufacturers) had introduced anything new for the Windows Phone 7 family of devices. There are several that have been announced by LG and Samsung, as well as the impending entry of Nokia into the world of WP7. Well, right now since the coast was clear, HTC decided to take the spotlight for themselves and released two WP7 devices running Mango from the get go. The first one, we did a review on the Portal earlier this week, the HTC Titan. This one literally breaks the mold on when it comes to specs compared to other WP7 devices due to: 1.5 GHz processor, 4.7 inch screen, and 9.9 mm thin. The Radar is more down to the same type of device currently available. The biggest difference with o. . . READ ON »

XDA Exclusive Phone Review – HTC Titan (The New One)

DSC_0178

If you are a follower of our little Portal, you may be aware of a few things. The first is that we don’t talk much about Windows Phone, although we don’t completely alienate it; and the second one is that we hardly ever review a device. We have seen a couple of these hardware reviews by some of the guys from xda-TV, and they were very good, so I figured I would do one myself as well, particularly considering what I have sitting on my desk as of last Friday.

You may recall, shenshang as well as Ben_duder getting a bit of hands-on time with HTC’s latest Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) during the unveiling event in London about a month ago. Well, I just got one courtesy of HTC and figured that I would use this time to s. . . READ ON »
