You may be referring to unlocking the bootloader. I had to do that on my DNA because verizon locks them down. Dont think Ive seen an app that carrier unlocks phones.

it is way better, but its taking a while for most sites to adopt it. the main advantage that i see is that it wont matter what browser you are on, all pages will load the same. I love chrome, and cant stand when something is only written for IE. that will totally go away

this, on the newer htc's (last 3 years or so) you need to go to htcdev to unlock your bootloader. that is not unlocking your phone in the way that has been brought up in public recently.


the market is currently flooded with reports on this from just about everywhere, and most people are confused. I located this quote a few days back and i dont remember what site is was from, but it explains it very well

"As of yesterday, it is now illegal to unlock a carrier-subsidized phone for use on another network. Doing so before your contract expires now puts you in violation of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The move is meant to protect carriers from losing the money they spend to subsidize phones before they have a chance to earn it back through their service plans. There’s already a We The People petition to reverse the decision, but is it worth trying to overturn this law?"

and there is a white house petition to overturn this

The reason that cell phones are cheaper when you buy them under contract is that the carrier is paying the difference in the price of the phone, expecting that they’ll earn that money back over the course of the contract. The list price for my phone was $699.99, but with a carrier subsidy, I only paid $200. Verizon paid $500 to htc so that I would use their service for two years, and over that time they can reasonably expect to make much more than that from me.

This pic is using auto enhance


This one is normal with tweaked settings


And this is a shot I took from a vid I took.


Imo, the camera on this phonr is great and rivals my old iphone as well as my friends iphone5. The pics look even better on this screen.

Is that the cause or effect if 4.2 not having flash? I read Google took it out in favor of HTML5, which would make sense if HTML5 was already established on millions of websites, like flash.

I have 4.1.1 and it doesnt have flash either. (Edit, nvm I have a 4.2 rom) Though I just downloaded the .apk from google and installed it. I think they should have waited till html5 was more thoroughly established before dropping flash support for android though.


Haha i wont be getting updates anyway with how haxored my phone is now

here's a tip for the HTC camera app (affects all HTC phones)... go into the settings where you can adjust the sharpness and set it to the lowest setting (probably -2) this will turn off the sharpening filter giving a more detailed, less harsh image...

Didn't see this until now.


Did you take the OTA?

Ive run both of these with no issues in the past.

He has a pre and post OTA version setup. Really the only difference is the kernel and a few features.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2105745

This was my favorite favorite one. Not as tweak happy as viperDNA but the battery life was great and very smooth.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2111723


Devs are currently working on an unofficial CM10 build for the DNA. It's almost done and working okay but it is still kinda buggy and they don't have audio yet.
