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

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.

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

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...

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

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.

S-On Kernel Installation Now Possible For EVO LTE

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...

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.
