Work In Progress to Give HD2 Touch Screen-Enabled Recovery

The legendary HTC HD2 gets a lot of cool modifications. The phone can run 3 different operating systems and holds the throne as the most developed phone of all time.

And it doesn’t stop there, as XDA Senior Member munjeni has recently released a touch-capable version of ClockworkMod Recovery for those running Android on the HTC HD2. It’s a pretty cool modification to an otherwise stable and effective recovery, as it’s big claim to fame is that it gives those tired, worn out volume rockers and power button a well deserved breather. It instead gives the user a few touch buttons on the bottom of the screen that the user can use to navigate the always familiar ClockworkMod interface.

The features are pretty simple and so far it’s been updated daily since it’s initial release just a few days ago. It’s most recent update, which was today, includes:

- fixed glitches during boot
– added stock cwm theme with cyan text color
– added button effects

It’s evidence that munjeni is willing to support this until it works perfectly, so for those holding out til it’s completely done should probably keep tabs on the original thread. There you can find additional screen shots, a full change log for every update and download links along with installation instructions. As with any recovery installation, there’s always the danger of something going wrong and permanently damaging your phone, so be sure to exercise caution! For those running Android on their HD2, it’s definitely something worth checking out.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...

New Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
