    Some of the smartphone tweakers over at the XDA-Developers forum have gotten their hands on a copy of the ROM for the upcoming HTC Wildfire S, giving us a full system dump of the phone's build of Android Gingerbread and the latest HTC Sense. While we're still waiting for the Wildfire S, these files may prove valuable to users interested in getting the software running on similar hardware, especially with that new version of Sense to play around with. This build comes from the ChinaMobile version of the Wildfire S. Look for the Wildfire S to land in Europe sometime during the next few ...

    We've posted numerous tweaks and add-ons for CHT 2.0, but today we're concentrating on some new and upcoming themes for the legendary HTC Sense mod on Windows Phone 6.5. All three themes, carefully crafted by XDA member Nordpolcamper, are Android-inspired and come with a mixed bag of skins for various parts of Sense. Sadly, only two of the themes are currently available, while a sneak peak of the third one, based on Android 3.0 Honeycomb, is shown above. The other two themes, "Gingerbread" and "Glacier," were recently released on XDA-developers. Their releases came shortly after they were ...

    A lot of people have called the HTC Desire HD an EVO 4G for GSM carriers. While the form factor and specifications may seem similar, there are a lot of differences behind the Desire HD's ample screen. It's the screen itself that will grab your attention, and well it should. When it comes to screen dimensions, somewhere there is a line between "not big enough" and "too big". I don't think we've found that magic number just yet: the Desire HD's 4.3-inch, 800 x 480 WVGA screen is "ginormous", but not awkwardly so. Many of you prefer having a physical keyboard to a slimmer phone. This phone ...

    The HTC EVO Shift 4G running on Sprint's WiMax network may seem logical to compare with the first HTC EVO 4G, but to compare the two would be like comparing pineapples to cumquats. The EVO Shift could be construed as more of a business device, with a full QWERTY keyboard combined with a professional looking design. The metallic-blue and chrome accents keep this device sophisticated but may appeal to a more specific group. Will the EVO Shift see as much action and popularity as its cousin the EVO 4G? Probably not, but being powered by Android 2.2 and having WiMax connectivity still makes ...

    A little while ago I unboxed and booted up the HTC Desire HD on camera for you. The unboxing video turned out pretty good, but due to a perfect storm of tripod configuration, lighting, and a ridiculously reflective screen, the first boot video didn't turn out that well. After several days of reconfiguring my setup and a "factory reset" of the phone, I've got a first boot video that I think you'll be a little more happy with.

    Here's what you need to do if you've got an HTC Desire HD and want superuser permissions: First off, this is temproot, not "real" root, meaning you'll need to get temproot at every boot, and we still dont' have access to modifying hboot or recovery. 1. From the homescreen tap Menu then Settings 2. Tap Applications 3. Tap Development 4. Check "USB debugging" (you can come back later and turn this off if you'd like) 5. Head to the Market, download and run VISIONary 6. If you want temproot automatically on boot, make sure you push the "run on boot" button 7. Wait 8. If everything worked the ...

    HTCSense.com is online and accepting sign-ups from people running both the Desire HD and the Desire Z phones -- phones that are running the latest version of the HTC Sense UI. Unfortunately, other Android devices, even those running older versions of HTC's Sense UI can't get in. According to a post at ePrice.com.tw, HTC is planning on letting not only other Android devices in, but Windows Phone 7 as well. Additionally, if you are running on an HTC Desire currently, if the rumors hold true, HTC will be updating your Sense UI to the new version as early as December 2010.

    Lucky for us Android users, we don't have to reboot often. When we hit the "power" button the phone goes into a sleep mode which usually turns off the screen and WiFi (unless you've told it to do otherwise). This lets the phone stay ready to receive emails, text messages, and phone calls at a moment's notice. Sometimes, however, you just want to turn the thing off: movie theaters, and when you're asleep come to mind. Unfortunately, turning the phone back on again usually takes around 30-45 seconds. That's far too long given today's technology. HTC decided to change that with their new ...

    A pleasant surprise for Windows Mobile 6.5 enthusiasts popped up on XDA-developers today, Co0kie's Home Tab Mod 2.0 beta! Unless you use a different operating system or have been living under a rock for a while, you know that CHT modifies HTC Sense 2.5 into something that is more functional and customizable. The previous version of CHT was 1.8.5, but 2.0 beta, yet again, takes Sense to a whole new level. Seriously, how does Co0kieMonster keep improving what is already a robust mod? What's new? Well, now the entire home screen, not just the quick links area, can be swiped to 7 different ...

    Though the HTC Droid Incredible is a 3G smartphone that operates on Verizon Wireless's CDMA/EV-DO Rev. A network, enterprising users have discovered a hidden menu that can be pulled up through Google Gesture Search that reveals 4G settings on the Android smartphone. It could be, since the Sprint HTC EVO 4G and the Droid Incredible have similar OS builds, the 4G settings could be a carry-over from the Sprint development for WiMax. Another possible theory is that in rolling out the Droid Incredible's Froyo ROM, HTC has been busy working on a 4G LTE phone for Verizon Wireless and the hidden ...

    Despite early enthusiasm by smartphone maker HTC in bringing th Sense UI to Windows Phone 7, company head Peter Chou had gone on record with Fierce Wireless to say that the company won't have HTC Sense in time for Windows Phone 7's launch. Chou's comments are a bit puzzling considering that we've been seeing some Sense leaks for Windows Phone 7 recently, both in pictures and videos. However, given Chou's comments, perhaps HTC hasn't optimized HTC Sense to the point where the company would be satisfied with a consumer release and the company doesn't want to rush it out for Microsoft's ...

    In this video we demonstrate the new HTC Desire HD navigation software that comes standard on the HTC Desire HD. The navigation program is easy to use and very fast to route a course. You may wonder why you would need to have a navigation program on an Android 2.2 device. Unlike Google Navigator this program saves all of the maps directly to the device or storage card. If you find yourself traveling outside of your coverage area you will still have the ability to navigate to points-of-interest and addresses. There are two versions that come on the Desire HD; Locations is the free version ...

    Although Verizon Wireless had already begun to dispatch its Android 2.2 Froyo update to the HTC Droid Incredible, the upgrade was rolled out OTA in batches. Now, it seems that the upgrade is widely available and users who are comfortable with downloading the update to their PC, transferring it to a micro SDHC card, and installing it manually can do so if they don't want to wait for Verizon to push out the update. The update file is available from Android Central. After downloading, you'll need to rename the file to "update.zip" and then place the file into the root storage of your memory ...
