Devs save the day twofold: HTC Evo 4G 30fps cap removed and HTC Aria rooted!


We have not one, but two great Android happenings to share with your this morning. First up — the Evo 4G’s sad tale of capped video performance. Or as we should now say it — the lack there of. XDA brain work is behind the hackery yet again. Contrary to popular belief or what HTC has said on the matter, the Evo 4G is plenty capable of 30+fps if you have the coding knowledge to unlock such power, that fact captured by the image above. With that said, if you’re an Evo 4G owner in search of more raw fps, check out this little thread over at XDA and get yourselves acquainted with the ongoing discussion.

But Evo 4G users aren’t the only ones having all the fun. Wouldn’t you know it, that unnaturally crippled HTC Aria that AT&T half-assed out of the gate can proudly stand from here on out as an unshackled, rooted device. Thank you notes and monetary donations can be sent to popular HTC hacker ” Eugene373″ for all of his valiant efforts. The whole HTC Aria root process isn’t exactly “easy”, though it won’t wrap your head into a pretzel either. Just make sure you follow this guide over at XDA and you should be golden.

As for motion picture goodness, hop inside for a duo of videos going into rather geeky detail of the whole Evo 4G fps debacle…
