in Android, Tips and Tricks

Frustrated with the poor battery life of your HTC Desire? Well, we all are. Even the Nexus One users are going through the same.

HTC Desire posted a rather ridiculous (but working) trick long back on how you can boost your HTC Desire’s battery life. The same goes for the HTC Evo too. It’s ridiculous, because it involves charging your phone, then turning it off, then again charging and then turning it on and then again charging – Weird, eh?

Android 2.2 Ported to HTC Deisre Via Unrevoked 3.1

by on July 20, 2010
in Android

The wait for Android 2.2 operating system to be supported officially by HTC on its Desire smartphone through an over-the-air update is getting longer and longer by each passing second. Hackers and Linux developers are now constantly coming up with builds of Android 2.2 which can be easily ported and run efficiently on the HTC Desire before the OTA update comes flying in to Desire users.
The most recent effort in this regard has been the Unrevoked tool which can bring a custom built version of Android 2.2 on HTC Desire. The official statement about Unrevoked at its official site says the following information about the tool: “unrevoked3 is a tool to flash a custom recovery image to your Android phone. A custom recovery image allows you to perform advanced tasks on the system partition, such as flashing custom ROMs and taking a full backup of your phone (a “nandroid” backup)”.
The utility is now available for several operating system platforms which include Microsoft Windows (XP, Vista, 7), Apple’s Mac OS X operating system, and open source flavors of Linux. What’s great about the utility that not only it ports the Android 2.2 on HTC Desire, but it also ports it efficiently on other HTC smartphones which are in line waiting for the awaiting the OTA official Android 2.2 update (only Nexus One is getting OTA update right now). The other smartphones which can have Android 2.2 through Unrevoked 3.1 are:
Sprint HTC Evo 4G (HTC Supersonic)
Droid Incredible (HTC Incredible)
HTC Desire
HTC Aria
Droid Eris
Although users of HTC Legend and Wildfire are still out of luck as this tool currently doesn’t support these two HTC smartphones. So if you’re a Wildfire or Legend users, we urge you to wait eagerly as the support might just be added soon enough.
