    sup guys/gals, i've been following a few of you for a couple days and followed all ur guides, thankyou! im rooted and battery is a lil better. My advise on a custom rom is to get xda-developers involved. They dont have a section for our phone yet but once they do one of their developers will surely make us a rom. I just left my htc hd2 and wat they did for that phone is beyond a miracle. do anyone got pull with those developers or know how to put in a request for our phone


    but my knowledge with android is limited, because the htc hd2 was not a native android phone, we had to do a lot of work arounds so im lost on some of these things we are trying to accomplish for a better working phone because the "right" way to do things wasnt introduced to me due to a none android phone

    i have already asked them to make a section for our phone and they have decided not to.
    very disapointing.


    I dunno what it is thats so complicated about makeing a section for a new phone. They made one for use here on these forums but when i first requested it I got a angry message back from one of the mods/admins.

    Once the HTC Thunderbolt comes out, maybe they'll change their mind...cause they'll have a ton of people working to root a heavily anticipated LTE Android

    why don't we PM some of the developers then and ask them to either open a section on xda or here?

    did that, they said they only deal with the Top 4 carriers. (Metro is #5).
    Verizon, ATT, T-Mobile, Sprint.

    I wonder if being the first with a functional 4g system will bring Metro up higher in the rankings.

    A Bounty thread is when everybody interested in donating post how much they will donate and we keep updating the total amount in the first post until it catches someone eye. Then we donate the money to whomever interested in completing the job after its complete and confirmed working

    If I keep turning 4G off after phone calls and keep it off throughout the day, the battery gets me through an entire workday without a charge. Once I'm home I charge it anyway. And I haven't even gotten rid of bloatware yet or underclocked the CPU. Dunno why your battery life would still be horrible at this point...it's definitely manageable for me now.

    You've already got one built into the phone...
    Settings --> Applications --> Manage Applications --> Running
    also --> Running Services
