    CyanogenMod 9 Release Candidate 1 finally available


    The CyanogenMod blog finally announced the release of its CM9, Release Candidate 1 starting with 37 different devices. The first wave of devices that will be receiving their RC1 build of CyanogenMod 9 ROM include the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Motorola Xoom, Galaxy S2, Galaxy Note, ASUS Transformer and the HTC Sensation.


    Watch the list of devices that can benefit from the build get longer quickly. The team made this commitment via its CyanogenMod blog, “As we’ve mentioned before, this release serves as the first wave of RC1′s. With the ‘core’ OS stabilized, our device maintainers will continue to work on their device trees to bring up more devices, this includes some of the newer releases as well as some from the older generations; but we’ll save that for another day,” the team said.


    If you love flashing your Android device with a custom ROM, CyanogenMod is one of the most popular ROMs out there. It’s known for being one of the fastest and most stable custom ROMs available.


    To see if you’re device has made the release candidate list, head on over to Get.CM now. If you don’t see it there yet, keep checking back.

    If you’ve been looking for root access to SIM unlock your HTC One S without waiting for permission from your service provider or paying a third-party for it, we’ve got good news. There is a way to re-set your HTC One S device so that it can be used on any GSM service provider you choose.


    The key to SIM unlocking your HTC One S


    You may have heard awhile back that HTC Sensation owners had figured out that HTC had included that device’s SIM unlock code within the /dev/block/mmcblk0p6 block. HTC quickly got wise to their error and encrypted the actual SIM unlock code with a key generated from the phone’s IMEI number.


    Not to be out-maneuvered, some crafty developers have discovered a way to generate the SIM unlock code for the HTC One S. Users will have to use their phone’s IMEI number to calculate the encryption key, and subtract that number from the UN_Lock_clode inorder to get to the phone’s SIM unlock code.


    If math makes you nervous, here’s the Bash Script that automates the process.


    To obtain HTC One S SIM unlock code with Bash Script


    Root your HTC One S


    1. Download Bash Script zip file
    2. Extract unlock.sh file from zip to /system/ folder on HTC One S
    3. execute the .sh file directly from root explorer or open terminal emulator and run:
      su <enter>
      /system/unlock.sh <enter>

    To SIM unlock the HTC One S


    1. Once SIM unlock code displays on screen (also saved to /sdcard/sim_unlock_code.txt), note the number and turn off your device
    2. Remove the microSIM card from phone
    3. Insert a microSIM card from another service provider and turn the HTC One S back on
    4. When prompted, enter the SIM unlock code

    This root exploit can be used to get a free SIM unlock code for a rooted HTC One S. For those who don’t want to root their device, you can ask your wireless provider if they’ll give you an unlock key (usually after 90 days of phone ownership.) You can also purchase a SIM unlock code from a third-party source. It should run you around $12.
