Rest in peace HTC… Oh, I mean my HTC HD2. Good bye, my very first smartphone. HTC HD2 was a great piece of hardware back in year 2009 (check out my HTC HD2 unboxing). It is the best developer friendly smartphone ever. Yes, you can run stock Windows Mobile 6.5, Windows Phone 7, Android, Ubuntu and Meego on HTC HD2. I don’t think there will be a phone that can do so in the future.
Backup Android applications, games and data are fairly easy with Titanium Backup. However, root access is required in order to use Titanium Backup just like most other Android backup applications in Google Play Store. Can I backup and restore Android applications and data without root access? Yes, you can but adb knowledge is required. No worry, ClockworkMod team has make our lives easier by coming out this useful application ~ Carbon – App Sync and Backup. Carbon does not require root access. Therefore, I can use it on my unrooted HTC One X.
Unlocking your device may void all or parts of your warranty. That’s the statement that I get from HTCdev – Unlock Bootloader website when I tried to begin unlock bootloader. Well, you can ignore the may and parts words in that sentence. I double confirmed with HTC Malaysia (when I visited HTC Service Center in Penang). All HTC smartphones (including my HTC One X) warranty will void upon unlock its bootloader. No matter you install custom ROM, root it or leave it with stock ROM. Your HTC smartphone warranty is gone forever…
