    NetRipper, the developer of LeoCpuSpeed, has decided to create a similar overclocking utility for devices with less powerful processors. Msm7kCpuSpeed lets users underclock and overclock devices with Qualcomm MSM7xxx processors. This means devices like the HTC Touch Pro, Touch Pro2, Diamond, Diamond2, and Touch HD (528MHz by default) can be adjusted anywhere from 57MHz to 710MHz (19.2MHz increments). It can be clocked slightly higher, but seems to be unstable when above 710MHz. Unfortunately, the device must be plugged into a power source to receive the benefits of the utility. However, ...

    HTC has released two updates today on their European Support website, both addressing the same issue but on different devices: HTC HD Mini and HTC Touch Pro2. According to the description "this update amends the internal management of SMS functionality, and enhances SMS transmission stability". As far as installation goes, the same procedure applies to both devices: copy the downloaded file to your device and run it. Note: If you perform a Hard Reset, you will need to reapply the update.

    We've been teased with the development of multi-touch for (single-touch) resistive screens for quite a while. A couple of months ago, a Dual-Touch SDK was finally released on XDA, which brought us closer to realizing the dream, and now it seems one developer has taken it a step further by putting it to good use. OndraSter has released a video showing that he's achieved pinch to zoom functions in Opera Mobile 9.7 - using an HTC Touch Pro2 and its resistive screen. He claims it works in HTC Album as well and actually goes on to state that "it should work in theory in any application." As you ...

    The wait for MaxSense, a new UI for HTC Windows phones, is nearly over. If you haven't heard of Maxycy's latest endeavor, MaxSense is essentially a major overhaul of HTC Sense 2.5. With it, we still get the Sense features we know and love, but now they're reconfigured and combined with some sweet, new features. Most notable are the 3 Android-like home screens (customizable with widgets), Sense launcher, 75 quick links panels, and a custom taskbar. If you're a fan of Sense 2.5 "power" mods, like Co0kie's Home Tab, you're going to appreciate what's in store to hit XDA-developers very, very ...

    A couple of months ago we showed you how you could run Ubunutu on your Touch Pro2 using Haret.exe. Well, the project continues to evolve over at XDA, and the latest builds add more functionality, like WiFi, web browser, screen rotation, and more. I was able to get WiFi working through my Touch Pro2. To get it going is super easy - just transfer the files to your storage card, and run haret.exe. Thanks for the tip, Jeff.

    If you're on the AT&T network and are in desperate need of an upgrade, or are simply considering a switch, this'll help you decide. Starting today, all Amazon sold At&t phones cost a penny and the sale will last until April 16th. Sadly this deal won't get you an iPhone, but it will offer powerhouses like the At&t Tilt, Motorola Backflip, BlackBerry Bold 9700, LG eXpo among others. The following is a list of Amazon's current best selling phones on the At&t network: 1. BlackBerry Bold 9700 Phone (AT&T) 2. Motorola BACKFLIP Android Phone (AT&T) 3.

    Device teardowns are always informative and interesting, especially when they come in the form of official step-by-step video manuals for training purposes. We were fortunate to see the HTC HD2 get disassembled and rebuilt in this fashion last month, but now the spotlight is on the widely released Touch Pro2. In these leaked videos below, the TP2 gets taken apart and put back together by trained HTC employees in about 10 minutes. The Touch Pro2 makes a unique device to rip apart because of all the intricate, moving parts - after all, it does slide open to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. ...

    Verizon Wireless is having a fantastic deal on their variant of the HTC Touch Pro2. Current subscribers, looking to renew with a 2 year agreement, can purchase the TP2 for just $29.99 and new customers can have it for $79.99 (regularly $199.99). It's part of Verizon's 3 day online exclusive sale, which ends on April 8. The Touch Pro2 is one of the most widely released Windows phones to date. Although it doesn't have the power of the HD2, it's still a solid device thanks to its best in class slide-out QWERTY keyboard and large 3.6" WVGA tilting display.

    Sense UI is the latest generation of HTC's custom built User Interface running on top of the Operating System and spreading deep inside it. You'll probably be spending most of your time in Sense, so customizing it to your liking is a thing you'll want to do. This guide is for Windows Phones running Sense like the HD2, Touch Pro2, Diamond2, Touch HD, and more. By default, you can do very little to the User Interface. You can change the Home Tab wallpaper to an image of your liking but that will only be for the Home Tab and not for the rest of Sense. You can add or remove Home screen tabs, ...

    Finally! The one word many Sprint subscribers are shouting across the country today as Sprint/HTC finally released the promised Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrade for their Touch Pro2. A highly debated rumor turned out to be true, Sense 2.5 (build 2012) is, in fact, on-board here. Now we know why the update took so long compared to other US carriers who released Sense 2.1 with their upgrades. We saw the Diamond2 receive an enhancement to Sense 2.5 yesterday, so it wasn't too shocking to see it make its way into Sprint's upgrade as well. Sprint Touch Pro2 users, you can finally feast on your WinMo ...

    If you're sporting the Touch Diamond2, you can now get an official ROM update from HTC that will add Sense 2.5 with all of the cool new features. Click on for the UK English version, or you can change your country with the selector at the top of the screen. There's also a new update for the Touch Pro2, but it doesn't look like Sense 2.5. Enjoy! Thanks for the tip, FRD.

    Unfortunately, it's been a long, grueling wait for Sprint HTC Touch Pro2 users and their Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrade. After a Small Business catalog was posted the other week, confirming a March release, we're getting a clearer picture of the exact date now. A PPCGeeks member, 99accordv6, has posted an image from an internal document that shows a March 19 release date for the 6.5 upgrade. Another member has also confirmed the date. According to the document, the update will include Windows Mobile 6.5, improved social networking integration and Sense UI enhancements. My focus is on the ...

    The zoom bar on the HTC Touch Pro2 and Diamond2 (Pure) allows zooming in/out while using certain applications like Opera Mobile, Excel, messaging, and some others. Personally, I don't use the bar at all because I find that it's either poorly implemented or I simply don't use the apps that support it. Well, I may actually start using it now, but not for what you may think. In the video below, we show you a hack from thx1200 that adds D-Pad actions to the zoom bar. So when you're in an app that's not "zoom aware," the bar can be used to move/scroll vertically, activate items and more. ...

    The XDAndroid project, for Windows Mobile devices with (W)VGA displays, has progressed tremendously since we last filmed a video about it. A few months ago, we loaded it onto an HTC Diamond2 and not too many components worked. We were able to navigate around parts of the interface and use apps that didn't require a data connection, but that was about it. Progression of time and development tend to go hand in hand, so we decided to follow-up on Android for Windows phones. This time we tested it on an HTC Touch Pro2 (CDMA) and the results are astonishing. Watch the video below to see Android ...

    Sprint's Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrade for the HTC Touch Pro2 is long overdue and many users have been getting quite irritated. Although Sprint publicly stated that it will be out by the end of Q1, TP2 owners seem to have the mindset of "I'll believe it, when I see it." I don't blame them as every other carrier seems to have either launched their variant of the device with 6.5 preloaded or released an upgrade for it soon after. Hopefully this latest posting by a PPCGeeks member will help ease the pain that comes with the waiting process. Platin465 has posted part of a Sprint business pamphlet ...
