Last September, HTC’s integrated Twitter client Peep stopped working because Twitter’s switch to a new authentication method called OAuth. Three days later the app started working again, being allegedly fixed by Twitter itself (we believed it was making an exception in Peep’s regard).
Last week reports of a security leak surfaced concerning Twitter passwords being leaked and a fix, at least at that time, was offered by HTC on-demand in the form of a secure Peep application.

Dark Forces Team (DFT), the group which brought us several useful tools for the HTC HD2 such as HardSPL and MAGLDR announced support for two new devices today; the HTC Rhodium (Touch Pro 2, Tilt 2) and HTC Topaz (Diamond 2, Pure). MAGLDR will support dual-booting Windows Mobile 6.5 and Android on these devices.
MAGLDR is a custom built on-device bootloader which replaces the factory bootloader, and provides support for loading multiple operating systems. In addition, it supports advanced debugging and ROM dumping features. The bootloader is currently only released for the HTC [...]
After releasing a Daylight Saving Time official update for the HTC HD2 and HTC Touch2 last week, the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer did the same for the popular HTC Touch Pro2 and HTC HD Mini handsets.
The description looks to be the same and the update for both devices “readjusts your clock to account for the hour gained during Daylight Savings”. As far as installation goes, download the proper EXE file for your handset, copy it to your smartphone and apply from there. Since this is a software patch, you will need to reapply after a Hard Reset or a ROM upgrade. [...]
In recent months, smartphones with more than capable processors seem to be getting boosted with various overclocking utilities, but what about handsets with less firepower, like the widely released HTC Touch Pro2 and its 528MHz CPU? An overclocking tool would be a perfect compliment, along with software tweaks like CHT 2.0, in keeping the faithful Windows Phone relevant while users gauge the market for either a Windows Phone 7 or possibly an Android. We covered one such utility before, called Msm7kCpuSpeed, but that seemed to be more proof of concept than practical application, as it [...]
Verizon appears to have locked down the 850MHz and 1900MHz bands on its new Motorola Droid 2 Global handset, which essentially makes it impossible to use the device on AT&T stateside. Granted, Verizon clearly markets its worldphones as only capable of 900MHz and 1800MHz compatibility — presumably to thwart exactly the type of network-hopping usage that the hardware technically facilitates — so the end-user can’t really complain of false advertising. Still, the temptation to use worldphones on domestic GSM networks is a strong one, and phones like the Windows [...]
