CyanogenMod 10 Released on HP Touchpad and Wildfire S

CM10

At this point, it just wouldn’t feel like summer unless we spent a little time talking about Jelly Bean. With releases coming out for seemingly everyone at this point, the devices with ports almost outnumber devices without. As the march continues, two new devices have managed to get some Jelly Bean—one of which becomes the second device to get Jelly Bean that wasn’t released as an Android device. They are the HP Touchpad and the HTC Wildfire S.

For the HP Touchpad, the unofficial CyanogenMod 10 port was developed by XDA Forum Member jcsullins, but posted on XDA by XDA Senior Member BIGSimon. For the Wildfire S, XDA Recognized Contributor benjamingwynn posted the unofficial CyanogenMod 10 . . . READ ON »

All-in-One Toolkit for the HTC Wildfire S

AIO Toolkit

We’ve covered several toolkit releases over the last few months. From mskip’s universal toolkits for Samsung devices to a plethora of toolkits for HTC devices, there seems to be a toolkit out there for everyone. Well, almost everyone. The HTC Wildfire S hadn’t received support for one of the more popular HTC toolkits.

This is now no longer the case, as XDA Recognized Developer hasoon2000, who created nearly all of the HTC toolkits linked above, has released his hallmark toolkit for the Wildfire S. It is very similar to the other toolkits, and has the same methods and features. For those unfamiliar with the HTC All-In-One Toolkit series, features include:

- Install HTC Drivers
– Get T

Bootloader Customization Now Open to More S-Off HTC Devices

Bootloader Customizer

Not too long ago, we brought you news that allowed HTC EVO 4G LTE users to customize their bootloaders. The process was pretty cool, allowing users to make their bootloader look however they want—including making it look unhacked. After the initial project was released, users clamored for this to be made available to more devices. The requests were heard and responded to. Now, the plugin has been made available to make the bootloader customizer for a number of HTC devices.

The process for a developer to port this is not hard. XDA Recognized Contributor regaw_leinad, who developed the application and plugin, takes a time out from the stags (yes, that’s really him) to explain how:

Simon’s Wildfires Utility Brings Intact Warranty Root and More

HTC Wildfire S

Utilities and tools are quite popular here on XDA. They provide quick and easy access to a number of otherwise tedious modifications. They are also typically updated frequently, so users generally have the most current methods for doing almost anything. For those carrying the HTC Wildfire S, you now have a multi-purpose rooting tool that promises to make the process more streamlined than manual techniques.

XDA Senior Member simonsimons34 has released a beta version of his app, which is aptly titled Simon’s Wildfires Utility. While there are some bugs to work out, the utility is capable of doing any number of things from rooting the Wildfire S to unlocking the bootloader in such a way that it does no. . . READ ON »

Get LINK2SD Working for the Wildfire S and Others

HTC Wildfire S

Freeing up internal storage is one of the things that most people with older Android phones commonly have to deal with. Some app-crazy individuals with newer phones have had to as well. However, there can be some issues with that. Typically, people use APPS2SD to help them out, but you can’t move things like your launcher or anything with a widget. It is also quite time consuming for those with a lot of apps.

A popular application called Link2SD has fixed many of these problems, but it involves a very complicated set up process. For those wielding the HTC Wildfire S, there’s a guide for that. XDA Senior Member d33ps1x has written a full blown tutorial on preparing an SD card for use for the Wildfire S. . . READ ON »

HTC Adds Bootloader Unlocking Support for Wildfire S and 4 Other Devices

wildfire S

Following their move to unlock all bootloaders on phones released after September 2011, HTC announced today that the HTC Wildfire S, Wildfire, Desire, Merge, and A315c (a Wildfire CDMA variant) joined the official list. It looks like all the devices they added right after Christmas are on the list as well.

The dropdown menu of supported devices on HTCDev’s bootloader page changed formats as well.  Now included, at the very bottom of the list, is an All Other Supported Models option.  That is for all future models, because eventually HTC won’t have that list there.  You’ll also notice asterisks by some devices in the list.  HTCDev explains,

In certain cases you may be required to install

Calling All Devs – S-OFF On HTC Wildfire S

wildfire-s

We all know HTC promised to unlock all the 2011 devices but that has not happened on the HTC Wildfire S, released back in May and still remains S-ON as there is no free software solution due to lack of dev support.

XDA member *se-nsei. along with a group of members is trying to pull attention to the Wildfire so we wanted to support the campaign for more devs and invite them to actively participate in development and ROMs for this forgotten phone!

So please spread the word and perhaps this device can join to the ICS party too!

For more information on how you can help, please continue on to the original thread. . . READ ON »

HTC Strikes Back! Flyer, ChaCha, Salsa, Wildfire S, Desire S, and Incredible S Fora Added

logo

Looks like HTC opened up the flood gates this past week at MWC (Mobile World Congress). They have introduced their upcoming line up, which explains why their performance was not as strong at CES. In any case, since we haven’t really had a whole lot coming from HTC lately (aside from the Inspire and the Thunderbolt), we felt that it was in the best interest of our community to try and get us moving with the current. All of these devices are running Android, but the biggest surprise from this line up is HTC’s entrance into the Tablet wars. Although, to be fair the HTC was here first with other “large devices” such as the HTC Shift, which even though was considered an UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC), still . . . READ ON »
