Do you consider yourself a die hard HTC fan? If so, we can’t blame you. Their latest flagship, the HTC One, has been a great success, combining great build quality, snappy internals, and a remarkable screen.

If you’re a fan, we wouldn’t be surprised if you already have something in your forum signature displaying your patronage to Taiwan’s most prominent smartphone manufacturer. However, having more options is never a bad thing.

XDA Forum Member Sgt-Obst created and shared a collection of HTC-loving banners. Stylish and sleek, these 500 x 100 images are perfectly sized for use in your forum signature. Images for the HTC One, HTC One X, HTC One S, HTC One Mini, and HTC Sensation XE . . . READ ON »

Tutorial for Mac Users Looking to Unlock with HTCdev

htc rezound

Most of the development that occurs on the forums requires users to run either Windows or Linux. As such, most guides are for those operating systems as well. Thus Mac users are in a state of limbo, as most users have to wait for someone with a Mac to develop or write tutorials specifically for Macs, including the latest troubleshooting.

However, if you have a Mac and you’re looking to unlock the bootloader for your HTC device, you now have a place and a method to help you out and troubleshoot. XDA Senior Member xjedi wrote out a Mac-friendly tutorial for unlocking the HTC Rezound bootloader using HTC Dev. In his words:

I had trouble unlocking the bootloader on my iMac but got it to work.

Unbranded EVO 3D Devices Now Have a Downgrade Tool

HTC Download Bar

With htcdev.com recently “unlocking” phones for it’s users, it’s not only been a real challenge trying to find a way to completely unlock the bootloader, but it shows that HTC will likely continue to release phones with bootloaders locked down, depending on the sub par unlocking tool on their website to keep flashers and developers happy.

Of course, that’s not going to stop anyone from trying to get around it. This is the case with XDA Senior Member Flashmaniac, who has developed a tool that will guide users with unbranded HTC EVO 3D devices with certain CIDs through the process of downgrading their hboot versions so that they can enjoy the freedom of full root.

Enable GSM Phone Calls on Your HTC Jetstream

htc-jetstream

As they say, the real fun doesn’t start until your device gets root and s-off and that’s certainly the case with the HTC Jetstream. The device got root just a couple days ago and the modders and developers have gone to work making the already great device even greater.

XDA Senior Member Giblet-dono has drawn up a quick tutorial that will give your HTC Jetstream the ability to make and receive phone calls over a 3g GSM network. According to Giblet-dono, all you need to get started is:

3G JetStream
S-Off (get yours from HTCDev soon!)
Root (get yours from DoomLord)

That seems like a very short and easy list of pre-requisites. Based on the instructions, it seems just as easy as editing your build.prop file wh. . . READ ON »

GPL Compliance or No Compliance At All

logo_htcdev

This is an open letter to HTC. They took a big step toward showing they actually care about customers by starting HTCdev–as opposed to not caring, making terrible phones, and brushing off complaints about how terrible they are, making them anyway. HTCdev is HTC’s initiative to connect and work with the developing community. It shows they want to be involved, want to listen, and want to improve their products and user experience as a whole–more than I can say for other manufacturers.

Here’s my gripe. If you want to be part of any development community, comply with our ethics. And, you know, our legal standards. If you won’t guarantee GPL compliance, you shouldn’t be here. Android was creat. . . READ ON »
