The Weekly Q&A: Week 29

Q&A img Xda-Developers is a great source of information. Part of the reason for this is the general attitude of the members here. Websters Dictonary defines community as "joint ownership or participation." By working as a community, the members of XDA have been able to come up with answers to some of the most difficult questions posed in the mobile world. Part of my job as an XDA News Writer is to find those answers and provide them to you in a quick and easy to follow manner. Thus begins another addition of The Weekly Q&A. This week we will be focusing on HTC Visions: G2/DZ.

HTC Vision (G2) Gets Gingerbread Sense, Courtesy of Team Villain

SenseGinger

For all of those eager G2 owners out there, you are probably happy with the Gingerbread builds available for your devices. However, you are left with a big void in your heart as Sense is missing from your daily interaction with your device. Thanks to our friends at Team Villain and XDA member HomerSp, Vision owners can now enjoy their beloved Sense back in their devices. This is a breakthrough development as the port was created from a merge of roms (Huashan and Wildfire S). The port still has a few things that need some tweaking (let’s face it, porting Sense to other devices has been a hard task since the days it was called TF3D back for WM). However, it is a port that can easily be used as a daily driver. The latest p. . . READ ON »

Polished T-Mobile G2 Battery Cover

DSC_0044

Some members like to go deeper when personalizing their devices, even further than just software. XDA member znanoDA took a step into personalizing the body of the device itself, making a chrome polished finish for the battery cover of the G2. All started because the plastic layer started to peel, which is a problem many will be familiar with. After noticing this, he decided to use sand paper to get rid of the plastic. The finished work looked nice and shiny. The original poster mentions that he used the following materials:

  • Automotive Wet/Dry sand paper
  • 400-600-800-1000-1500-and finally 2000 grit

Be aware that the only responsible for making this will be you, so proceed with caution. If you have another metho. . . READ ON »

Forum Merge Coming Up Soon: HTC Desire Z and T-Mobile G2

logo

After some research, developers discovered that the custom ROMs for the Desire Z were able to run on the T-Mobile G2, and vice-versa. The hardware of both devices is almost identical. XDA member steviewevie suggested svetius (the user experience admin) about this and he decided to merge the forums soon.

This means that developers won’t have to start different threads for both phones – making everything just a bit easier for everyone:

I think it’s going to be a very very good thing, because after all the G2 and DZ are essentially the same phones and run the same custom ROMs, so it will be good to have everything in one place. I think it will also encourage peopl

HTC Vision (G2) Hinge Teardown/Repair

P1010689

So for those of you who are a bit squeamish, look away now….because XDA forum member verkion has written up his experience on fixing his loose G2 hinge.

If you don’t want to use magnets in case the compass is affected, take a look at the XDA member’s teardown. verkion couldn’t find an online teardown showing the actual spring mechanism for the z-hinge and has helpfully provided a photo of the actual mechanism (pictured).

The fix actually proved quite simple – assuming you can get to the pictured point of disassembly, tightening up the mechanism apparently is super easy. Take the spring out, stretch it, and put it back in!

Head on over to the forum thread for more discussion.. . . READ ON »
