We’ve already brought you reports of a work in progress for the HTC HD2 getting touch-enabled recovery. As it turns out, there’s several other phones who’ve had it for a couple weeks already.
There’s a few phones they’re actively supporting their touch-enabled recovery on. For those who are unfamiliar, touch-enabled recovery is a recovery that utilizes touch screen controls to navigate instead of the old school volume rocker + power button method. We can all agree, those poor hardware buttons could use a little break, right?
Those wielding the Sony Xperia ARC have a few more options, as you can check it out via DooMLoRD’s kernel for Gingerbread, and Ice Cream Sandwich. It’s also available in Stock Gingerbread form as well.
It is important to note that all the touch enabled recoveries are based on the legendary and always awesome ClockworkMod Recovery. So you already know it’ll work.
So for those with the aforementioned devices, if you’d like to check out the touch-enabled recoveries on some awesome kernels from a couple of XDA’s finest, then hit up the source links and check em out! For everyone else, the UtterChaos train is firmly rolling, so don’t be surprised to see them working on other devices very soon!
We are getting into the final quarter of the year, and you probably know what that means… Holidays are just around the corner. For us techno-driven mobile enthusiasts, it also means that a slew of brand spanking new devices is just around the corner. Several are already out like the SGS2 for some carriers in the US while some others are coming soon. Well, the case for our latest addition may not fall under either of these categories. However, it does fill a gap that many of our members were trying to get filled by requesting this. In case you are curious about its technical specs, this device is pretty much at the level of performance as the EVO 4G and devices of that generation, which boasts a relatively large screen at 4.1 inches (0.2 inches smaller than most large devices out there), a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, 512 MB of RAM, and a few other things here and there. It is, like most Huawei devices, something mid range for the budget conscious among us.
So, if you were among the people who requested this and have something that you are dying to share, please do so and let us know about your experiences with this device.
