Navigation Bar edits crashes NBA Jam

My latest gaming addiction has been the NBA Jam release on Android. It was recently on sale for 99 cents so I couldn’t resist. The updated graphics and zany gameplay makes it just as fun as the original. There are just two quirks that I really wish this game didn’t have. The first small annoyance…




Unlocking, rooting, and recovery for the Nexus S

Although the Nexus S has been available on the market now for over a year, it’s actually a bit confusing for first time users to unlock and root the device. Give it a try, do a search and try and find the right adb and fastboot drivers for Windows 7 64-bit. I’m willing to bet…




[MOD] Volume Wake for Bulletproof 1.4 Rom

One of my favorite roms on the Sensation 4G is Bulletproof 1.4, based on Sense 3.0. It has the right mix of tweaks and mods to make it smooth and quick in the heavily populated world of S4G roms. However, one thing that was missing from the rom is the ability to wake the phone…




4EXT Recovery Themes

There is a new recovery available from┬ámadmaxx82 called 4Ext that incorporates many features and options that every crackflasher needs. Did you ever want to queue up .zip files for flashing with backup, cache wiping, and numerous other options? This recovery and it’s associated control app has it all. My normal routine is usually wipe cache,…




[FIX] HTC Sensation 4G screen of death

A lot of custom rom users on the Sensation 4G have noticed screen of death occurrences and reboots/lockups. A developer on XDA has dug deep and found that the HTC RUU (Rom Upgrade Utility) and OTA (Over The Air) updates differ in that a rpm image located on the RUU is not present on the…




T-Mobile Sensation 4G S-Off and Perma-root

Over the weekend, the T-Mobile HTC Sensation 4G was “cracked” and to everyone’s delight s-off (security off) was achieved. This basically allows for custom kernals and roms to be installed via, you guessed it, a custom recovery. Here’s how to do it. Power off your phone and then press volume down and the power button….




T-Mobile G2x Official Gingerbread is out!

The official LG Gingerbread update is finally out for the LG/T-Mobile G2x! You will need to grab the LG Mobile Software updater. Please note that this will break any root access you already have. So in typical DroidHype fashion, here is a link to grab a ClockworkMod flashable pre-rooted zip of the new 2.3.3 update….




Flash Xionia Recovery on the LG Optimus V

The LG Optimus V on the Virgin Mobile network is by far one of the best values in Android smartphone computing. Not only is the Optimus V an excellent entry/intermediate device, it’s also on one of the nation’s cheapest smartphone plans starting at $25/month. Like it’s siblings, the Optimus V is very welcoming to custom…




Failed rom and kernel flashing on the G2x

So from some insane crackflashing I did recently on my first G2x unit, I found out it suffered from some similar problems that my Droid Incredible experienced. On certain roms or kernels, it would just lock up the G2x on the initial boot screen. Not only that, it also heated up the CPU immensely in…
