TWRP Running On The HD2!

You may remember that a few months ago, TeamWin released their own recovery image for Android devices. Much like ClockworkMod, Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) can be used across a wide variety of devices. Thanks to the efforts of XDA Recognized Developer arif-ali, this highly multi-functional recovery image can also be used in the legendary HD2. This recovery image is still a work in progress but it allows the end user to seamlessly do all the customization that he/she is used to and much more. TWRP specializes in handling partitions in a much more thorough manner than other recovery images as it allows you to select individual partitions to back up, re-size, and much more. It also allows you to customize the background color of the whole interface, so it does not get boring.

The dev in this case did enough work on the original development to get it going for the HD2 and has so far obtained a rather good resulting port. There are only a couple of minor bugs, which are reported in post #3 of the thread. If you do have an HD2 and would like to help the dev with this, please leave your feedback.

TeamWin Recovery Project, or twrp for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. 

You can find more information in the original thread.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

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...
