HTC Evo 3D

New ICS ROM leaked for the HTC EVO 3D

Owners of the HTC EVO 3D are clearly selective consumer who only appreciate smartphone hardware with 50% more dimensions than the standard two. Think how much more they'll appreciate them with Ice Cream Sandwich. Yes, in addition to ported ROMs and other leaks, you can now try out HTC's official Android 4.0 build, by way of an RUU file. Many thanks to BriefMobile, who leaked and posted the file themselves.

HTC EVO 3D CDMA Ice Cream Sandwich ROM leaked

There have been a surprising number of Ice Cream Sandwich builds released from the major manufacturers, but I honestly wasn't expecting to see this one. A generous XDA member has posted the Android 4.0 ROM for the HTC EVO 3D, straight from the source and ready for flashing. This particulate software build is intended for Virgin Mobile's US version of the phone, but it will work with The Now Network as well.

HTC EVO 3D LTE prototype leaks in video

Hot off the news yesterday that HTC will be releasing an HTC EVO 4G LTE for the Now Network later this year we now have something even better, if you like 3D of course. A prototype has been spotted of an unknown HTC device with dual cameras, but this is most likely the successor to the EVO 3D. We'll be calling this the HTC EVO 3D LTE for good measure.

HTC EVO 3D heads to Virgin Mobile as the EVO V 4G

In a smartphone world starting to get crowded with powerful dual and quad-core processors, 720p HD displays and more it appears that Virgin Mobile is still a little behind the times. New details are confirming that the decent but slightly outdated HTC EVO 3D will be headed to Virgin Mobile soon, possibly this summer as the HTC EVO V 4G.

Virtuous S4X brings ICS and Sense 4.0 to HTC EVO 3D and Sensation

Whatever else they might be, custom ROM developers are speedy. Barely three weeks after the first official ROM for the Endeavor (now officially revealed as the HTC One X) leaked, an industrious group of devs have released a series of ROMs based on the leaked code. The Virtuous S4X series of ROMs isn't the first family of custom ROMs to bring Ice Cream Sandwich to HTC's devices, but it is the first to bring the ubiquitous Sense along for the ride in its fourth incarnation. At present only the GSM version of the HTC EVO 3D and the HTC Sensation are supported, and the ROMs themselves are in beta form and their first release at that - don't expect daily driver performance. Work from the developers includes resizing and recalibrating ROMs to work on qHD (960x540) screens, smaller both physically virtually tan the HTC One X's 720p panel. In the best tradition of custom ROMs, they've also made a few speedy tweaks and removed bloatware that isn't strictly necessary. HTC has committed to bringing Ice Cream Sandwich (and probably Sense 4.0) to both the EVO 3D and the Sensation, but it might be months before the updates materialize. If you can't wait, download the files, reboot into a custom recovery and get crackin'. Both will require a full wipe (even from a stock ROM) so make sure and back up your data with Nandroid. It'll still be a few weeks at the very least before the HTC One X is released, so it'll be a while before the developers can upgrade their source files.

HTC removing Carrier IQ from CDMA phones starting in January

After the public relations disaster that was the Carrier IQ scandal, HTC and its carrier partners can't get the software off of their phones fast enough. In the case of phones on The Now Network, customers don't have to wait much longer: the next update should remove the controversial software, according to The Verge. HTC is removing Carrier IQ from all its affected phones, starting with its CDMA models - Verizon customers can breathe a sigh of relief, since they don't use the service.

Slide 2 Wake enables locking and unlocking by sliding capacitive buttons

This sort of thing is why I love Android. A n innovative modder named "bponury" from the fairy land that is XDA-Developers has posted a video of his latest creation, the Slide 2 Wake kernel. It enables a quick sleep mode via a swipe across the capacitive keys from right to left, and an easy unlock from wake via a swipe from left to right. Thus you can turn your phone on and off without ever actually touching the screen.
