Sprint HTC Evo 4G LTE to Receive Android 4.3 in Mid-Feb

Capture

Despite the massive success enjoyed by the device’s predecessor, the Sprint HTC Evo 4G LTE never quite became a pop culture icon like the HTC Evo 4G. But even though the Sprint’s branded version of the HTC One X is now nearing its planned end-of-life, it still has a decent amount of loyal users a year and a half later.

Thankfully, HTC is still actively supporting the Evo 4G LTE, and they have now publicly stated their update plans for the device via Twitter. When asked on Twitter about HTC’s update plans for the device President of HTC America Jason Mackenzie stated that the update would be released to Sprint for internal testing in January, with an update rolling out to consumers in mid-Februa. . .

DirtyRacun Released for HTC EVO 4G LTE–S-Off for HBoot 1.15/1.19 without Downgrade

dirty_racun_ftw_totallyawesome_givethesepeopleatrophy

For some HTC EVO 4G LTE owners, it’s been quite a while since S-Off was possible. When HTC updated the HBoot to 1.15, the popular LazyPanda S-Off method from UnlimitedIO was no longer compatible. To make matters worse, HTC released another update to 1.19. Previously, we brought you news of a downgrade method that required users to hard brick their phones and use Qualcomm Download Mode to bring them back to life with an older HBoot to then use LazyPanda again. Now, UnlimitedIO has a new S-Off method.

XDA Recognized Developer LadyX, on behalf of the entire team, has released DirtyRacun. Like LazyPanda that came before it, the tool gets you S-Off. The best part is that there is no complicated and potentially da. . . READ ON »

S-Off for 1.15 and 1.19 HBoot on the HTC EVO 4G LTE

LazyPanda

When the HTC EVO 4G LTE got its last update from Sprint, an unwelcome passenger came along for the ride. Up to that point, all of the HBoots—HTC’s bootloader—could be unlocked and given S-Off. The newest updates brought HBoot 1.15 and 1.19, which couldn’t be hacked through conventional means. Thus began the long, hard road to unlocking it yet again. That long road is now over.

XDA Forum Member Mac_Gyver, along with the help of a whole bunch of other members, mods, and developers, have solved HBoot and the EVO LTE is one again unlocked.

Now the bad news. The method requires a considerable amount of both patience and expertise. Much like the HTC EVO 3D downgrade method, this is both a softwa. . . READ ON »

S-On Kernel Installation Now Possible For EVO LTE

Kernel

When it was first rooted, the HTC EVO 4G LTE had a lot going for it. If you chose to unlock using HTC Dev, kernel flashing was actually possible. While S-Off is like the holy grail of unlocking on any HTC phone, the fact that people could flash whatever they wanted really made it unnecessary for the average ROM flasher. Unfortunately, with the latest set of updates, HTC updated the HBoot and locked it down. Now, EVO LTE users don’t have the freedom to flash whatever they want.

Thankfully, there’s already a fix for that. XDA Forum Moderator and Recognized Developer xHausx has ported an old favorite from the HTC EVO 3D. Essentially, it’s a way to modify an update.zip to trick the phone into flashing t. . . READ ON »

Fix YouTube and Netflix Video Buffering Issues on the HTC EVO 4G LTE

HTC-EVO-4G-LTE

The screens on Android phones seem to just be getting bigger. Thankfully, they’re also getting higher resolutions so anything that shows up is big and beautiful. So when popular video applications like YouTube or Netflix have buffering issues, and you can’t use that big screen for its intended purpose, it can be a little annoying. HTC EVO 4G LTE owners have been experiencing strange buffering issues even with solid connections to their cell towers, but now there’s a fix.

The tutorial is written by XDA Senior Member motcher41 and involves changing HTTP and RSTP proxy settings. You’ll need your MSL code, and motcher41 provides a couple of ways for users to get it. Of course, you’. . . READ ON »

Mod Your EVO LTE Custom ROM with Short Order Kitchen

Short Order Kitchen Old School

Even though it’s not real development, ROM kitchens can be quite handy to individual users who wish to spice up their personal ROMs. By being able to add a tweak here or a mod there, users won’t have to switch ROMs just because they’re missing one feature they consider to be important. For the HTC EVO 4G LTE, there is a new kitchen called Short Order Kitchen that’s looking to fill that role.

Brought to our forums by XDA Senior Member kf2m, the kitchen is more built for adding mods to your individual ROM rather than for building ROMs to release to the public. As kf2m explains:

This is a very simple kitchen for doing some quick mods to a ROM.
How many times you have a favorite ROM that you add some twe

Remove the Bloat with ROM Cleaner for One X, EVO 4G LTE

vacuuming

Once rooted with a custom recovery, the door flies open, and users can do pretty much whatever they want to their device. Many will simply stay with the stock ROM and enjoy the benefits of being rooted. That doesn’t mean they don’t have options as to what they put on their devices. One very popular task among rooted users is to remove bloatware. For HTC devices, such as the HTC One X and the HTC EVO 4G LTE, you can not only remove bloat, but you can remove HTC Sense as well—though some will say that they are one and the same. What makes this particular debloater cool is that it uses the AROMA installer to allow you to customize your debloat, similar to what we saw on the Xperia PLAY a few days ago.

HTC Sensation HQ Camera Mod Ported to EVO 4G LTE

Cool Camera Shot

With the camera quality becoming more important with new smartphones, making the cameras on already released devices can mean a lot. With applications that help cameras and their features on the rise, it’s no surprise that phone cameras are being frequently modded to perform better. One such modification for the HTC Sensation and HTC Vivid makes the camera much better. Now that mod is available to HTC EVO 4G LTE users as well.

The mod was ported to the EVO LTE by XDA Forum Member williamford. Not only is the mod available for download, but williamford also explains the method that was used to port it. This could be a good learning experience, as we here at XDA have been encouraging users to learn new things. . . . READ ON »
