HTC Ville Caught on Video

htc-ville-leaked-online

Just a few days ago we were talking about how HTC has been making a lot of noise in many news lately, and now we saw a video where the HTC Ville  shows off HTC Sense 4.0.
Some of the leaked details point that this metal uni body device will have a thickness of 8mm and the following specs:

– Sense 4.0
– 1.5GHz Dual Core Processor
– 1GB RAM
– 4.3 “QHD
– 8 megapixel camera
– VGA front camera
– Bluetooth 4.0
– Android 4.0 / 4.0.1 ICS

The video clearly shows some lagging, but this may not be a final build of the software.
The Ville is expected to be among the devices HTC unveils at Mobile World Congress soon, so expect more about this phone as this story develops.

More Details About HTC Sense 4.0

555

HTC Sense is one of the most popular customizations UI on the Android mobile interfaces, and just a month before the start of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona we have some leaked information about the upcoming Sense 4.0.

According to the source the unlock screen now show us more information from our list, quick access to contacts and even the ability to open the notification bar directly. This is not exactly a customization of HTC as this feature is included on Ice Cream Sandwich OS. Also, new widgets are included, like the one that allows access to websites that have previously saved in the browser. That’s not all, because now the email client also includes surprises so good that according to the source t. . . READ ON »

Early ICS Port Arrives For the Original Transformer

TransformerICS

The Transformer Prime has been getting lots of attention lately. With an ICS OTA update and several fresh mods, Prime owners have more than enough to tinker with.

What about the Prime’s older brother?

The original Eee Pad Transformer TF101 is finally getting some love in the form of an (admittedly) early Ice Cream Sandwich build. XDA member paulburton has released a working version and the respective source code.

From the original thread:

I thought some of you might be interested in what I’ve been hacking on for the past couple of days, ICS running on the transformer. It’s very early days but the touchscreen, keyboard & wifi are working. It feels quite smooth swooshing between homescre

EternityProject Brings Moto RAZR GSM ICS Update and Different Method to Flash Firmware

Droid Razr

EternityProject head developer, and also XDA Recognized Developer, kholk and his crew have brought a few really great things to the Motorola Droid RAZR in a relatively short period of time.

For starters, they’ve posted the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the GSM version of the RAZR, available immediately, in their thread about it here. Along with the download links is instructions on installation and screen shots. As stated, this is for the GSM version of the phone only, so those toting the CDMA model will have to wait just a little bit longer for theirs. Also, if you plan on checking it out, make sure you fulfill all the requirements before flashing.

Additionally, the team has brought an alternative to flas. . . READ ON »

HTC Rezound Gets Pure AOSP Ice Cream Sandwich Port

icsandwich

The HTC Rezound has a number of Ice Cream Sandwich ROMs. Most of them also include HTC Sense or are based on HTC Sense framework (often called “senseless”). However, there isn’t a whole lot of AOSP love going on in the HTC Rezound forums. At least, there wasn’t a few days ago.

XDA Senior Member dmeadows013 has been working, released, and is now actively updating an Ice Cream Sandwich AOSP port for the Verizon’s beastly HTC phone. Based on the HTC Evo 3D port of ICS, the ROM is still only in beta and one can expect to have issues.

Here’s a list of what isn’t working:

-Data
-Phone
-Wifi
-Camera
-Bluetooth
-Texting

So it isn’t quite ready for prime time, daily driver us. . . READ ON »

Le Pan TC970 Ice Cream Sandwich and CyanogenMod9 in the Works

Le Pan

The development on cheaper, lesser known tablets has been surprisingly active in recent weeks, and Matsunichi’s modest 9.7″ tablet is no exception.

The mid range tablet is currently being worked on by XDA Developer Junior Member fv+ with some help from XDA Developer Junior Member chinabull.

The duo doesn’t have ICS or CM9 working just yet. However, with updates on their progress appearing every 1 or 2 days, it is only a matter of time before they get an alpha for users to test. The latest update on their progress:

Great news!
With chinabull’s help, I found out how to generate the 20 bytes SHA1 checksum for trhe images contained in the firmware.
It is the SHA1 checksum of the image + the

Samsung Galaxy Mini Gets ClockworkMod and RZ Recovery

RZ_RECOVERY_2

Users of the Samsung Galaxy Mini have had a lot of excitement. Not long ago, CyanogenMod9 was successfully ported to it and it’s also had CM7 for quite some time.

XDA Senior Member squadzone has kept the train rolling on the development for the Galaxy Mini with his simultaneous release of RZ Recovery and ClockworkMod Recovery. This gives users a more familiar recovery experience and makes the process of making back ups and flashing ROMs a little easier.

Both recoveries work perfectly fine, with the exception of the RZ Recovery being unable to read ClockworkMod backups. The feature list for the RZ Recovery is:

LG GT540 Optimus Gets ICS

lg-gt540-optimus-2

In this time of bleeding edge performance, older devices fall by the wayside as newer, better versions are released. The day a phone is sent to the low activity forum of XDA, is the day that the community officially aknowledges the end of a device’s useful life cycle; it means that development has slowed to a crawl and new ROM’s have all but stopped being produced.

The LG GT540 Optimus is one such device, however, developer mikegapinski refuses to let it die. You see not only did he build a custom ROM for the Optimus, but he built an ICS ROM. Your not reading that incorrectly. From his website:

USB/WIFI Tethering Working with alternative apps 80%
RIL Working 100%
Sound Working 100%
Headset Working 100%
