Use Your EVO on MetroPCS

If you are one of those lucky/unlucky (depends a lot on personal experience) people to be able to get MetroPCS coverage, you will be happy to read that there are ways to fully utilize your Android devices with the carrier. As long as the phone is flashed by Houdinisoft (done by MetroPCS stores across the country), the phone can be used on their network. However, the drawback is that most data apps will not work with their internet service as the internet settings needed for this cannot be easily input by doing something like adding and APN. XDA member killac93 found the following guide, which addresses all the issues that plagued Android users in MetroPCS. This guide is particularly written for the EVO, so we would not recommend trying this on other Android phones, unless you know what you are doing.

Alrights guys, don’t know if anyone has posted a tut for this yet but I finally got this EVO up and going with web. I don’t know who the original poster of this was but it sure rocks!!

So Lets Begin First you will need the following Items

  1. Cdma-Workshop (Any Build) i will not post…..hint….Search
  2. Qpst v2.7 build 323 (I have attached this)
  3. Htc Hero DIAG Drivers (I Have Attached This)
  4. Htc Sync (Its On The Link At The Bottom)
  5. BetterCut or Anycut ( I have made a link for…Anycut)

Ok Now that we have the Files Lets Start Flashing

You can find more information in the guide 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.
