Temp Root Achieved for HTC Flyer

It looks like despite all the woes that HTC is facing, people have not gotten discouraged from getting their products. The latest lineup of devices, most of them being equipped with new versions of Sense are hitting the shelves left and right and as a result of that, our devs are getting new toys to play with. You may have read already about a temp (perma-temp) rooting method, which was developed for the HTC Sensation and EVO 3D and that enables some root functionality to the devices (busybox, SU, allows installing unsigned apps, etc). However, the root does not allow for custom rom or kernel flashing as of yet. It seems that after messing with several other methods, XDA member Elim has found out that the same tool used to root the Sensation and EVO 3D can indeed be used for the HTC Flyer and its variants. Keep in mind, once again, that this will not allow you to flash any custom roms, but it will allow you to remove bloatware and make your device a bit more vanilla.

Please leave some feedback behind if this worked for you.

1.3 Use fre3vo tool
After some changes and with the help from agrabren we got successful temp root rights. Until now we found with this tools the following exploits:

  • HTC EVO view 4G: last version contains exploit
  • HTC Flyer WiFi 16GB: exploit at adress 38126600:a00
  • HTC Flyer 3G 32GB: exploit ad address 38125e00:1200

You can find more information in the original thread.

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
