Gingerbread Successfully Ported to… the Vogue!

Vogue

We have seen some rather good devices that just flat out refuse to drop from grace in the past, but the HTC Vogue has to be the toughest cookie out there. XDA member dzo has made the first official port of Gingerbread onto the HTC Vogue. This little device has nearly bug free ports of every Android OS that has come out to date and it seems that with a few exceptions like GPS and ability to shoot video, this device is fully functional (yes, even the camera).

The dev mentioned that this is just a simple build and that he, as usual, is just putting his efforts out in the open for other chefs to have a chance to play with this new delicious treat. Speeds have been reported to be similar to Froyo builds, so if you feel adventurous̷. . . READ ON »

Atools: Do Everything Needed to Prepare Your Android Rom for Vogue/Kaiser/Polaris

atools

There are many parts in an Android rom port package. You have to make sure that everything is properly set up or you will end up with a non booting rom. With this in mind, XDA member l1q1d has taken on the task to make a one stop application to help you prep everything in your zImage, default, and even your nbh prior to flashing. The best part is that it is written in Python, which makes it unique due to cross platform compatibility (Mac, Linux, or Windows).

If you feel the need to modify the rom to suit your needs, take the app out for a spin and make sure that you report any bugs back to the dev.

This is a preliminary release of atools. With this application you can:

  • download and edit latest nbh
  • download latest zImage and configu

NBH Editor Updated to Version 4.0

NBH Editor2

A while back, we posted an article that talked about an application for putting your personal touch on the Android NBH files prior to flashing. This was created by XDA member loserskater and since then, he has released a few updates with the latest being 4.0. Aside from the list of updates that he has implemented over the last few months, this latest incarnation of the program was completely re-written using Python, which according to the dev, should make the app much better regardless of the system being used.

The dev mentions that he is looking for feedback, so make sure that you drop by the thread and leave some feedback.

Updates:
(8-29-10)4.0
Thanks to l1q1d for lighting the fire and doing the initial coding.

New Version of Super Froyo for Vogue Released

incubus

After a period of hiatus, an update for the Android port for Vogue/Kaiser/Polaris made by XDA member incubus26jc has just been released. As with every version of this port, the update brings a myriad of updates and fixes as well as the usual smoothness, stability, and speed that you can only expect in these ports. RLS13 features the boot image of the Droid eye, but with a twist… incubus26jc has rendered it green, so while it looks different than usual, it goes very well with the rest of the theme that he used for it. If you have one of the aforementioned devices and are itching to use Android, give it a go.

Speed Up Android Installs on the Vogue with BSG

Schermata 2010-07-03 a 13.09.59

Good news for users of Vogue, Kaiser, and Polaris users who are constantly updating their Android roms. XDA member l1q1d has recently come up with a boot script generator. In case you are not familiar with this, in order to install or update a build for the Android port for these devices, you must go through a special loader which runs with HaReT (normally accessed by pressing the “Enter” button on the device). This brings up a set of commands, such as “install system”, “update system”, and “clear data”. This is necessary whether the OS is being installed via SD card or directly in NAND, and it takes a little while to get the system “ready” for the f. . . READ ON »

Android on Vogue’s Guide to Everything

Vogue

We have featured the Android port for the HTC Vogue in many occasions. While the Vogue is an old phone, with no wifi capability, and quickly dying and being replaced by newer devices, it is a fantastic device that offers very good performance and specs in a stylish and very portable package. One of the best features currently available for this device is its capability to run quasi-perfect ports of every Android build available, even Froyo.

These devices have every feature functional on most roms, including:

  • Can be flashed to NAND (wiping out WM in the process);
  • Camera;
  • BT;
  • EVDO;
  • Market;
  • GPS;
  • Great battery life;
  • etc.

One of the biggest nuances that plagues the Vogue is its lack of Wifi, which makes it incredibly . . . READ ON »

Make Your Own Android Vogue NBH with NBH Creator

Screenshot-NBH Creator

XDA member mnjm9b brings us a nice little tool that will allow us to put our own roms together for the Android port for the HTC Vogue. The tool can also be used by the HTC Kaiser and the Polaris as well since they share the same ports. The utility is for Ubuntu but the dev says that it may work for other Linux distros as well. You need to have the zImage that you want to flash onto the device. It is really a simple utility to use and can help aspiring cooks to compile their builds in a seamless manner.

NBHCreator v 0.2b

NBHCreator makes the nbh file for flashing android to nand.

This utility works for Vogue, Polaris and Kaiser.

Prerequisites:

Froyo on Vogue… Fully Functional

incu

You may remember a few days ago that we posted an article about Froyo having been successfully ported to the HTC Vogue. Well, thanks to the constant efforts by our devs and testers the kinks have been mostly worked out and everything in the latest build is fully functional. By everything, we do mean everything (GPS, BT, Camera, Voice Search, etc). The build, developed by XDA members dzo and incubus26jc, is really fast and rather stable as well, very much suitable for daily use. So, if you have a Vogue and want the absolute latest in Android development, be sure to check RLS 5 out.

This build used to be more customized by me but as time goes on and DZO keeps releasing better builds with more features, It has become less o

First Froyo Build for the Vogue Hits the Forum

incu

You may remember an article which talks about Froyo being successfully ported to the Vogue by XDA member dzo (in case you don’t, here is the link). The build was plain and without the usual amount of stuff that we are used to seeing in our devices, but it was Froyo nevertheless. Seeing this, XDA member incubus26jc, who is responsible for bringing us many other Android builds and tools for the Vogue, has released the first “loaded” release of Froyo for the device. As previously pointed out, there are several things that are still not functional (like the camera, BT, or GPS), but it seems that the device can make and receive calls among other features that may make it good enough for daily use.
