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!!

  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.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more.
