Android Flashing Tool for the HTC Touch HD

blackstone toolkit

There seems to be a tendency these days of referring to devices that have been around for a year or so as “old.” And given the pace at which mobile technology advances, that’s probably a fairly reasonable assessment. So by those standards, the HTC Touch HD (a.k.a Blackstone) is positively geriatric—not in a crocheting by the fire, reminiscing about the good old days kind of way though; the Blackstone is more of a fencing with walkers kind of device.

Originally released back in late 2008 sporting a whopping 3.8 inch screen, 288 MB of RAM, and Windows Mobile 6.1; the Blackstone is still  not ready to call it quits, and is capable of running a version of Android 2.3.7 built by XDA Se. . . READ ON »

QuickShutdown for WM Updated

ScreenShot4

XDA member petititi updated his app to version 1.5.3d. For those who don´t know, QuickShutdown is an application to turn off, restart or set to sleep your Windows Mobile device but without the need of .Net framework and because of that it is very fast and responsive. Updated version corrects some bugs, adds a short power button feature and let you choose if you want to lock device when screen goes off.

Control Panel Settings to Links for WM

Captures01

Are you into flashing ROM´s frequently? Then you will agree that creating shortcuts to your favourite programs or applications should an be easier or automated task for every time you flash a new ROM. XDA member dubidu took care of this and created CplLinks. This application goes through the registry key which holds the settings items and creates a .lnk file for each of the entries. Once installed, there are no messages, it only runs and creates the links.
The developer’s app only takes 11.5 kb and must be installed on main memory.

htc_touch_hd_2

Do you have a HTC Blackstone using Android kernels and have problems with your screen? Or typing on the keyboard is very slow? XDA member camro posted about the work of another XDA member OliWe. The developer posted a series of fixes to get your screen working as it should. Fixes like wrong pointer and calibration are fully corrected as well as added the long press for hardware key, all of this installing the new kernel provided.
So, if your Blackstone is having such issues step in and try it, some members already reported back with great results.

Flashaholic RUU Simplifies Flashing

ORD

Is your ORD (obsessive rom flashing disorder) itching? XDA member appelflap has written a small app that should make the whole flashing process a whole lot easier. The app is basically a modified RUU, which includes a few tweaks. For instance, the app runs a task 29 command on the device prior to flashing. If you are not familiar with this, it is a command to format the device. Among some of the other tweaks, the dev removed the check box confirmations that have to be clicked on before proceeding to the next step (ie “make sure your device is connected… etc).

The app is in testing stage, and it is currently being turned into a universal RUU (meaning it would work for any device). Drop by the thread and make su. . . READ ON »
