A little more than two weeks ago a revolutionary (pun intended) new unlock and root solution was released by AlphaRev and Unrevoked that provided S-Off and NAND write access to a number of HTC devices. That tool received an update today that adds a number of previously unsupported device to the mix:

  • HTC EVO 3D GSM
  • HTC Thunderbolt
  • HTC EVO 4G running Gingbebread
  • HTC myTouch 4G Slide
  • HTC Droid Incredible 2 running Gingerbread
  • 0.4pre3
    - Fixed support for HTC myTouch 4G Slide (doubleshot) 1.44.0007

  • 0.4pre2
    - Fixed support for HTC Incredible 2 (vivo_w) 0.97.0000, only works on Gingerbread now!

    As Sprint's newest dual-core WiMax device, there was the little doubt that Motorola Photon 4G would inevitably be compared to the HTC EVO 3D. The battle nearly started itself in the comments yesterday once our Photon 4G Review Roundup went live, as the EVO 3D loyalists came running to defend their beloved device. Fortunately, Bob Kovacs of Wirefly took it upon himself to find out which device is better by throwing them both in the ring together to face off in the Schmackdown.

    Enthusiast blog SprintFeed has uncovered a screenshot of Sprint's end-of-life (EOL) listings which indicates the handsets that Sprint will cease ordering in the coming weeks and months to free up space for its newer catalogue of devices.

    The Android devices that will be getting the axe in July include the Motorola i1, followed by the white HTC EVO 4G in September, and the Samsung Transform, black HTC EVO 4G, and Samsung Epic 4G in October.

    Canadian telecom Rogers have given Android users north of the border a bit of good news this afternoon, as they've confirmed that their release of the HTC Evo 3D will have an unlocked bootloader.

    This response came from Rogers rep "RogersKatie" in the discussion thread below a blog post announcing their forthcoming Android products. This hopefully confirms the carrier's official stance on the matter, and isn't a matter of miscommunication.

    As a Canadian consumer, this is a great step in the right direction when it comes to keeping our devices up to date and in line with Android devices in the United States.

    In the ever expanding quest for root access on the EVO 3D and its T-Mo cousin, the Sensation 4G, another chapter has unfolded. XDA devs have achieved sticky-temp root on both handsets, which basically means that temp root will now survive reboot. This still isn't permanent root, though, as the SU binaries are not in the default path(s), but instead an alternate location which can lead to some root apps not functioning properly.

    It's hard not to love SetCPU developer Michael Huang. He's been on the overclocking frontline for many devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S II and Motorola XOOM, and now he strikes again with an custom tweaked kernel (update: to clarify, the kernel source isn't available, so this isn't a rewritten kernel - he used a hex editor to modify it) for the HTC EVO 3D that allows for a stable 1.8GHz.

    EVO 3D
    Last Updated: February 8th, 2012

    To say the HTC EVO 3D has a lot to live up to would be a colossal understatement. Its predecessor, the EVO 4G, ushered in a whole new smartphone era - one replete with 4.3-inch, 4G-capable Android behemoths.

    And at least on paper, the new EVO is a marked improvement over the original, packing a significantly crisper display, a processor with twice the cores, and of course the much-ballyhooed stereoscopic 3D capabilities.

    AmazonWireless has gone slashing more prices today - this time on the EVO 3D. You can pick up the 3D on a new 2-year agreement or line addition to your existing Sprint account for just $150 right now. That's $30 less than it was yesterday, so if you've been waiting for the right price to pick up your 3D, now seems like the time to do it. Those looking to upgrade from their current Sprint handsets will still have to pay the old price ($180).

    Update: It turns out that this may not be as encompassing as we originally thought. According to Reddit member apantek, only a very limited amount of bloatware can be removed, leaving the bulk of it untouchable (this has been confirmed by our own Jaroslav Stekl). The unremovable files include:

    • Facebook for HTC Sense
    • Flickr
    • Footprints
    • HTC Hub
    • Peep
    • Picasa web albums
    • Polaris Office
    • Ringtone Trimmer
    • Spider-Man
    • Sprint Zone
    • The Green Hornet 3D
    • TrimIt

    So, while Sprint may be making steps in the right direction, it's not completely there yet.

    evo 4G vs evo shift vs evo 3D

    It's June 24th, and you know what that means: the heir to the throne of the EVO 4G, one of Sprint's most successful Android devices ever, has officially gone on sale. But considering that reviews have been mixed and that purchasing the EVO 3D will lock you into a two-year contract, the buying decision is understandably difficult.

    To help you find out whether Sprint's latest flagship phone is right for you, we've put together a handy-dandy table comparing the specs of all three members of the EVO family:

    Spec type EVO 4G EVO Shift 4G EVO 3D
