T-Mobile-G2-by-HTC-Android-Smartphone

If youre running CM6.1 on your HTC Vision (G2) and have been experiencing issues with the speaker LED notifications, XDA forum member pershoot now has a working fix.

The dev has worked the behaviour as follows:

  • If the device is plugged in, the light will stay solid (charging).
  • If a notification comes in with the screen off, it will blink green.
  • If the screen is turned on, the charging light will come on.
  • If the notification is not acknowledged, when the screen turns off it will blink green again.
  • When the device is not plugged in, notification blink green only when the screen is off.

Current known issues include that low battery will blink green instead of amber, rebooting whilst under 10% low battery state will not t. . . READ ON »

ClockworkMod Recovery Available for the G2

cwm

You may remember an article from last week, when we talked about Clockworkmod adapted for the Desire Z. XDA member Koush, who happens to be the creator of this very famous recovery has just released a version of his popular recovery image for the G2. If you come from older devices like the EVO, you will probably be thankful that this is now available. In case you are not familiar, CWM will allow you to preform a wide variety of actions.

If this is all you’ve been waiting for to root your G2, now its the time. Feel free to post some feedback in the thread.

Installation instructions:

  1. YOUR PHONE MUST ALREADY BE S-OFF. SEE THE OTHER THREADS IN THIS FORUM ON HOW TO DO THAT.
  2. I recommend getting on Wi-Fi.
  3. Download ROM Manage

Let the Kernels Roll In for the G2

G2 Overclock

Bound to happen, although we didn’t expect it this soon. Now that the G2 is a fully flashable device, one can only count the minutes until the first roms and kernels hit the fora. It didn’t take long for XDA member coolbho3000 to release one with his own flavor to the wild. You may know this user from a little app called SetCPU, which allows for overclocking on many Android devices. His most recent work included an overclocking script for the G2, which allowed the device to hit 1.4 GHz. The drawback on this was this was just a script, which needed to be ran every time the device was booted. Thanks to the newly acquired root, this script was baked into a kernel, which means… no more running said script.

G2 Permanent Root Achieved

G2 Root

It looks like it has been quite a day for the new Desire family owners. As you may have seen already, the Desire HD obtained perm root and apparently, roughly at around the same time, T-Mobile’s G2 (Vision) got the same gift from our devs. XDA member unforgiven512 has posted a very comprehensive how to guide (based on the work of scotty2), which will take you through the step by step on permanently rooting your G2. This is a major achievement on work that has been going on since before the release of the device these past couple of weeks.

The process is straight forward but must be followed down to the “T” as there is a risk of bricking your device (which happens to be the case for pretty much anything we . . . READ ON »

Get the HTC Typing Experience on your G2

2

If you hate the G2’s soft keyboard, you can sit back and relax because it was found that the HTC keyboard hack for the Nexus One works correctly on the T-Mobile G2. This keyboard, which is an enhanced version of the stock HTC keyboard, has some pretty nice features built-in. It’s made by XDA developer jonasl, and the features are endless – almost literally. It’s amazing to see how much work has been put into this keyboard – it’s been updated more than 25 times now, and many of them contain new features –  and it’s great that it’s also compatible with the T-Mobile G2. Yet the developer is planning to discontinue it for now:

XDA ROM Report: the Sense HD Experience on your Phone

romreport

Many reviewers have been positive about the changes HTC made to its custom Android UI, HTC Sense. Especially the htcsense.com service, which offers many features to keep track of your lost or stolen phone, is well received. However, because HTC doesn’t update its older phones to have this new version of Sense – which is a bit odd in our opinion – you will have to buy either the Desire Z (Vision) or the Desire HD (Ace, we will be calling these devices by those names in this article). To solve this, some developers ported the ROM from one of those device to other phones. This means that you can enjoy all the goodies of the Sense HD on your own phone!

To make it easy for you, we’ve created a list w. . . READ ON »

HTC Vision (G2) Successfully Overclocked to 1.42 GHz!

G2 Overclock

XDA member coolbho3000, who brought us the joy of SetCPU, comes bearing gifts for owners of the new T-Mobile G2 (aka HTC Vision). The device is underclocked to 800 MHz from factory (equipped with a Snapdragon processor, so it should be able to reach at least 1 GHz). However, after a lot of tweaking and playing around with several parameters, the dev finally came up with a patch for the kernel to allow overclocking of up to 1.42 GHz. Needless to say, according to the dev, this device will perform as you would expect from such a high clock speed. In fact, he obtained a Quadrant score of 2265 (screenshot available in the thread). The best part? There is no need for root as this is only patching the kernel and hence there is no n. . . READ ON »

Enable Wifi HotSpot on HTC Vision (G2)

android_2-2_froyo_wifi_tethering_screenshot-540x470

Wanna use your G2 as a mobile hotspot? That’s now possible thanks to an interesting find by XDA members sherifone and HamNCheese. Normally, enabling the Wifi Hotspot requires root acces, but sherifone found a not-so-easy way to do it – with emphasis on not-so-easy. Some advanced steps are needed to establish a stable connection, and temporary root, but once you have it, you will be more than happy with the result.

In short, sherifone found a way to acces the application – which seems to be already installed, but not available in the menu’s. You can do this by installing Launcher Pro, or any other application that lets you insert your own path to create a shortcut on the home screen. Fin. . . READ ON »
