HTC EVO 3D Whiteout Instructions

So you've got a brand new HTC EVO 3D in your sights, but you're thinking you want to take a trip down the color-based new world of Android casings that's exploding all over the landscape these days. What will you do? Here's what a fellow by the name of Zoidpilot over on XDA Developers did - simple and not at all destructive, right? Wrong! But you can't make an EVO omelet without breaking a few cases, right? Also you'll need Pop Tarts, but we'll get to that later.

HTC EVO 3D and Sensation Overclocked to 1.7 Ghz

Did any of you guys see this coming? I did but not this soon as the EVO 3D and Sensation 4G are still locked down. No kernel source has been released and the bootloaders are still locked tight for the time being. The man behind the photo you see below is Michael Huang who is the developer behind setCPU, you can follow him on twitter at @coolbho3k. Following him on Twitter he has just teased all of you proud EVO 3D and Sensation owners showing you what is coming soon.

HTC EVO 3D and Sensation 4G Temp-Root Available

Those developers over at XDA and other popular development communities are at it again working hard to bring us the things we need, things like temp-root for the HTC EVO 3D and the Sensation 4G. Earlier the group TeamWin found an exploit and were able to achieve root access. Now those nice guys are letting everyone else join in on the fun while they keep working.

TeamWin Finds EVO 3D Exploit, Root May Be Coming Soon

You may not know who TeamWin is but they are the guys that brought things like WIMAX and HDMI Mirror to CM7 for the EVO. They are hard at work but they have families and jobs just like the rest of us and this will take time. According to a few tweets along with an already huge thread over at XDA they have found an exploit in the kernel used on the HTC EVO 3D and are looking good for root access in the coming days.

Netflix will work on new Evo 3D with a little work

I know that there were a bunch of Android fans out there that were waiting impatiently for Netflix to finally launch its app for Android users. Once the app hit it was welcomed, but as some found out the app only supported a limited number of handsets leaving a bunch of Android users without streaming TV and videos. If you picked up the new HTC Evo 3D, you were one of the users without official support.

Euro HTC EVO 3D official: dual-core HSPA+ 3D superphone

The HTC EVO 3D has been officially launched in Europe, with the glasses-free 3D smartphone set to go on sale from July 2011. Offering a 4.3-inch qHD resolution screen like the HTC Sensation, only supporting 3D graphics without the silly specs, the EVO 3D has HSPA+, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and a dual 5-megapixel cameras that support 2D and 3D stills and video at up to 720p HD resolution. OS is Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.0, and there have been a few tweaks made to suit the 3D capabilities. We met up with HTC last week to discuss the EVO 3D, and the company told us that, while it could have made the whole UI 3D, after tests it decided to keep things predominantly 2D as the third dimension was unnecessarily distracting. HTC Watch will offer 3D video content to buy (some territories will get a preloaded copy of The Green Lantern in 3D), though there won't be any 3D games at launch; HTC tells us that they're in the pipeline. 3D photos can be easily sent to users with non-3D devices as 2D versions, meaning backward compatibility. Otherwise, the HTC EVO 3D has dualband HSPA/WCDMA supporting up to 14.4Mbps downloads and up to 5.7Mbps uploads (network depending), a microUSB port that supports MHL HDMI (with 3D output if your screen can handle it) and both WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0. There's 1GB of user-accessible ROM and 1GB of RAM, along with a microSD card slot, and the whole thing weighs in at 170g and measures 126 x 65 x 12.05 mm, though the blunt edges make it feel a significantly bigger, heavier device than the curved Sensation. We do like the dedicated camera button and physical switch for toggling between 2D and 3D modes. As for the bootloader, since the EVO 3D was in development while the decision to open up future HTC devices to third-party ROMs was made, it's not clear what will happen. HTC told us that's still being discussed internally, and that it's "not as simple" as throwing a switch on production units. Pricing is also to be decided, though it'll likely come in alongside the Sensation.

New Multi-Core Benchmarking System CF-Bench Tested on Sensation, EVO 3D, Galaxy Tab 10.1, A500, G-Slate

So we got wind of a brand new app on the block, one that may well replace our favorite dual-core benchmarking application Smartbench 2011 in a heartbeat. Of course, we'd never wish such a thing to happen, and given that we've recently had such awesome fun with that benchmarking system, we wish them only the best, but let's have a look at another option here. This is CF-Bench, a benchmarking tool that's got support for testing multiple cores on your Android device, allowing you to test both native and managed code - joyous day, let's see who gets the best!
