HTC Evo Root after newest OTA firmware upgrade

Following the recent OTA update sent out by HTC, many phones were getting bricked along with other problems, but enough of that. Inside the HTC update was security patches that patched the previous vulnerability in which root was originally attained. Their was a bounty in the XDA Forums for the person who acheived this and I guess they are paying up at the moment as the bounty now says:

1. Your root method must be able to root a stock EVO with v1.47.651.1. Full root and NAND rw required. – DONE
2. This method must be verified by at least 5 other forum users that are not new. – DONE
3. Once these requirements are met, I will pay you via Paypal. – PENDING

So, congratulations anonymous user, and many thanks!

Android 2.2 Ported to Tmobile G1

Android 2.2 has been partially released only to the Nexus One, but it’s already been hacked onto the HTC EVO 4G, and it’s all up in the air which other devices will get it and when. But like clockwork, the boys over at xda-developers have ported it onto the first and oldest Android device, the T-Mobile G1/HTC Dream as well as the MyTouch 3G. There’s still a few bugs to be worked out as with all porting, but it’s reported as being stable. And loading this ROM on your G1 is probably only for the most experienced of Android hackers.      [xda-developers]



myTouch 3G Slide is T-Mobile’s next android phone, and it will be available in June. TheT-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide runs Android 2.1.The myTouch 3G Slide features a 600-MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 processor, a 3.4-inch 320×480 HVGA AMOLED display, 512MB of internal storage, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 5.0 megapixel camera, a 8GB MicroSD card, HSDPA 7.2 for high-speed, GPS, Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth and a 1300 mAH battery.

YouTube – How To Fix the Red Ring of Death #1 (Penny Trick)

I know this is off topic for my blog but tomorrow I’m going to try and repair 7 Xbox 360’s I’ve had just sitting around for like 6 months . I fixed all of these units on multiple occasions , some where bought just to be fixed but eventually the fix wore off . I gave up as I had a new PS3 to keep me company but I will not wait any longer . I have not tried this method of repair before so I think I will give it a try .
