Verizon Droid Charge Tweak and Script Pack

droid charge

The newest flagship devices feature some pretty impressive specs: quad-core processors, over a gig of RAM, 16-32 GB of storage, and HD screens. However, that doesn’t mean that development work has halted on older devices. As devices get older, devs find new and fun ways of keeping them  working well. For Verizon Droid Charge users, there is a tweak and mod pack to help make the phone seem fast again.

XDA Senior Member dSlice released a tweak and mod pack that adds some flair to the Charge. Some of the features include:

I have scoured the vast online community, that is the great XDA and have researched and tested various scripts(init.d) and tweaks(build.prop and gps.conf) to help our greatly handicappe

Get Your Charge Display To Work The Way It Was Meant To

VoodooScreenTuning

Have you ever had a look at your Droid Charge and thought to yourself “wow! this is a great screen! I mean, look at these colors”, but always thought that the best could actually get better? It looks like XDA Recognized Developer supercurio had this curiosity and decided to start digging into the settings for the screen on his Infuse 4G, which carries a similar (but larger) screen. After much looking, he figured out that the overall way the screen is programmed was the same as with the Galaxy S, which means that the screen is heavily under-performing. He came up with a set of tweaks and settings that he made into an app and shared with the community. This is just a proof of concept, but basically when . . . READ ON »

The UnBrickable Mod – Spreading Like Butter On Hot Toast

unbrickable

This has to be one of the best project across our site in terms of usefulness, complexity, and potential for devices across the world. The UnBrickable mod by XDA Recognized Developer AdamOutler. In case you are not familiar with either the dev or the project, this basically is an attempt at trying to make Samsung devices into immortal devices capable of rebirth even after being bricked beyond repair. You can think of this as JTAG but without the expensive equipment and far more simplified. This project has been a complete success with the Samsung Captivate and the Vibrant and is quickly spreading over to other devices such as the Infuse 4G, the Epic 4G, and the Droid Charge. Below you will find a list of the next ta. . . READ ON »

Unbrick Your Hummingbird-Powered Device by Creating Your Own Bootloader

broken_phone_l

How would you like to create your own bootloader? Sounds a bit daunting, no? Aside from the inherent “cool factor,” having this ability could get your device out of some tough spots that would otherwise require the use of JTAG.

Thanks to the work of a team lead by XDA Recognized Developer Rebellos, this is now possible for Samsung S5PC110-based (read: Hummingbird) devices. Since there are quite a few Hummingbird-powered devices roaming about XDA, this can prove quite useful for when ODIN is not enough or if your JTAG pins are nonfunctional.

In the words of the developer:

What is it?

NoMoarPowah

If you think that mobile device modification ends at replacing Android’s modular components, you’re wrong. XDA Senior Moderator and Recognized Developer Chainfire is at it again, this time with a Charging Screen replacement for certain Samsung devices.

For starters, this modification displays both the time and numerical battery charge level when active.

droid-charge-640

If you just got your Droid Charge and this is in fact your first fling with Samsung devices, there is a very important program that you will need to become familiar with if you were to try any of the fixes posted in this site. Odin, named after the Nordic God, is essentially a RUU for most Samsung Galaxy devices. Simply put, Odin will allow you to flash tar images to your Android devices. One very useful application of this is to be able to back up and restore the complete system. Some of these images must be prepared in order to be flashed and XDA Recognized Developer imnuts provides us with a useful guide on how to make these custom images yourself. As always, please be sure to read and fully understand the instructions i. . . READ ON »

Charge Up Your Samsung Droid Charge With EE4

droidcharge

Updates are both the livelihood and the bane of Android users everywhere. Ultimately, these carrier-controlled packages determine exactly what we are able to do on our favorite toys. Often, these updates couldn’t come at a more opportune time. For example, the wireless 4G hotspot functionality baked into the Droid Charge was coded to lose functionality at the end of last month.

Now, thanks to XDA Moderator Committee member NotATreoFan, we are delighted to bring you news of a fresh new EE4 update for the charge, in which wireless hotspot functionality is now restored to its full LTE-sharing glory.

Restored wireless hotspot functionality, as well as various other bug fixes, are now just an update away. . . READ ON »

Root has Come for Droid Charge

samsung-droid-charge-172x300

It seems that as of recently, Samsung has been dropping flagship devices on every single carrier around the world. As of recently, the latest one to receive some giant screened device from Sammy was Verizon in the US and they were blessed/cursed (depending on the point of view) with the Droid Charge. Since this device was locked rom being able to use custom goodness, XDA member jt1134 decided that this could not and shall not be the case. So, he did what any good XDA member would do, he posted a guide with a fairly simple method on how to root it. It looks like the package will give you permanent root as well as Superuser rights. It also includes XDA member supercurio’s voodoo fix, as well as a few other goodies, s. . . READ ON »

Also, the Droid Charge seems to have made its way over here. This new 4.3 inch beast by Samsung seems to be something to be reckoned with. This is Verizon’s second 4G LTE enabled device and the specs are nothing short of impressive with a. . . READ ON »
