HTC Glacier ROM Leaked - Is This The New myTouch? [UPDATED]

Somewhere behind the Great Firewall of China, a group of devout HTC hackers are working hard at doing what they do best. Over at the now-famous 911sniper blog, another ROM belonging to an as of yet unannounced HTC device has just been posted ahead of time.

Sadly, the filehost they chose appears to be running their server through a 56k modem, so not much can be said right now as to the ROM's contents.

    Modder's Column: The Hunt For The Best HTC EVO 4G ROM

    Modder's Column, formerly known as Modder’s Monday, is a column dedicated to rooting, hacking, and other forms of modifying Android and is written by Jaroslav Stekl, a man who spends his days coding, hacking, hiking, and of course, writing for Android Police.

    As I mentioned in the last edition of Modder's Column, one of my favorite things about Android is how customizable it can be, even for novice users who would rather not spend all day hacking their phone.

    Last night we posted about Flipzmod3's caffeine-fueled rampage on the new OTA update for the HTC EVO. The OTA got rooted really-really fast, and now we have a fully-working, stable ROM based on it.

    Last night, flipz, the author of Fresh ROM, sent out a test version of Fresh ROM 3.3.0 to all the donors/testers, and we did our job well. We nitpicked every tiny little bug, and the result is that tiny little .1 at the end of the public release flipz announced this morning, with fixes for all known bugs.

    ClockworkMOD Recovery Now Available For The Epic-It Was Only A Matter Of Time

    There is talk of rooting and ROMs throughout this article. If you aren't familiar with the process or its pros and cons, you can check out our primers here:

    Well, SDX didn't waste any time rooting the Epic 4g, so it should be no surprise that they have now gotten a custom recovery running on it. Apparently it wasn't easy but, after much trial and error, the SDX devs finally arrived at this beautiful, beautiful screen:

    Picture 21

    They were even so kind as to create a one-click, dummy proof method, the hardest part of which is the installation of the Android SDK.

    Coming Soon: Stock Android 2.1 For Samsung Galaxy S

    It seems a few community developers (@barakinflorida) have been inching towards releasing a functional, bone stock version of Android 2.1 for the Samsung Galaxy S (That is, without Samsung's TouchWiz interface). Their efforts are paying off, as this video shows.

    The only big issues remaining lie in getting the camera/camcorder to actually, well, work. A relatively minor inconvenience, and a problem many developers have struggled with when developing full-ROM releases for phones with UI overlays.

    Clockwork Recovery Successfully Loaded Onto DROID X, Custom ROMs On The Way?

    We don't have a whole lot of info on this, but apparently Clockwork Recovery (a custom recovery image) has been loaded onto the DROID X. This could imply custom ROMs based specifically on Motorola's ROM may be finding their way to the DROID X. Also, this means if your phone "softbricks" (ie, bootloader not corrupted), you can makes a nandroid backup, and then restore it.

    hiu

    To be clear, this doesn't mean the DROID X has been unlocked, nor has the encrypted bootloader been circumvented, it just potentially allows flashing custom software to the system partition (ROM).
