B2G Firefox OS Alpha

Firefox OS Alpha 2 release ini General is very good OS. Believed on her Official Release, this OS will be great on BUTTONLESS DEVICE like Galaxy Nexus, since Nexus S still have hardware button, the only HOME hardware button work. "Back Soft Button" in the app on top location will hard for a Device More Than 4 inches display size, since most user using only ONE HAND for phoning, setting, browsing ... etc. Thus good idea to move "Back Button" into lower part of app / device.
I did not do some speed test .. or else, in general the app still laggy and feel too slow for modern OS. However the appearance is intuitive. Personally I do like Windows Phone Model Tiled appearance, this looks cover whole face of device, not with a Wallpaper , since wallpaper is not really important thing to tweak device appearance. Application lay out is preferred by most user. I personally wanna to use this nice Firefox OS on Crespo as daily device, but I can not find any chance so far to SYNC my Contact with Google Account ... well this is Mozilla Decision to accommodate user's Google Account OR NOT , sync Contact so far only available with Facebook Account ... I do not have facebook account.

Firefox OS Alpha on Crespo

Good idea to flash and test for someone who has a device supported by Firefox OS, it is nice, Zero chance to brick device and easily can come back to Android at anytime. Flash Via CWMR / TWRP Jelly Bean For Crespo my build for someone testing Firefox OS and wanna to back to android

HTC EVO 4G Sprint Unbricked

SOFT BRICKED HTC EVO4G is not hard to be revived. By searching with help of stubborn giant software corporation Google, finally found a way to REVIVE The device
  • Logically by flashing stock RUU, the device will revive back, however the following situation prevent to flash stock RUU
  • RUU Available in Windows Platform, must start from ANDROID STATE, mean the device must boot into android, but the device can boot at hboot and fastboot state only
  • Flashing system.img, boot.img and recovery.img via FASTBOOT become impossible since the device is S - ON
  • Tested flash rom.zip via fastboot ... IT WAS FAILED


As linux lover (I do not hate microsoft or dislike Apple), using Linux Machine to tweak android smart phone (IMHO) is really handy, unless the tools will not work on Linux. By Theory flashing RUU (Rom Update Utilities) in Linux should be possible, unfortunately, RUU is available on windows platform only. No worries a good independent developer released a Linux Tools named UNRUU. after successfully compiling UNRUU on gentoo machine, it is easy to use UNRUU to extract a ROM from RUU set.
  1. From Bricked HTC EVO4G have been known original Version Main is 3.70.651.1
  2. From XDA WIKI Page Stock Rom Version 3.70.651.1 is available


  3. Go, find It and Download
  4. Extract rom.zip in RUU by using UNRUU from stock RUU

  5. Command is quiet simple

    unruu RUU_SuperSonic_S_Sprint_WWE_3.70.651.1_signed.exe and immediately o file named rom.zip will be available
  6. Flashing rom.zip via HTC oem RUU State by fastboot
  7. Presumable, we are in a folder and execute a command unruu RUU_SuperSonic_S_Sprint_WWE_3.70.651.1_signed.exe and rom.zip is available
    • Boot phone into bootloader and then fastboot mode
    • Execute a command
    • $ fastboot oem rebootRUU

    • Device will turn into RUU Mode as below


    • Execute a command
    • fastboot flash zip rom.zip

    • Device will on flashing mode


    • Computer screen will show the process

  8. UPON FINISH FLASHING AND REBOOTING .. DEVICE WILL BOOT NORMALLY


HAVE A NICE REVIVING BRICKED DEVICE
