1. Install HTC Sync on your PC
Officially HTC Supports to unlock the boot loader, so you can download it from htc dev website: http://www.htc.com/www/help/htc-explorer/#download

2. Unlock your phone's bootloader
Note: HTC Explorer isn´t listed as a working device yet but it has been tested and works perfectly. Choose "all other supported models" when selecting device.

3. Add a recovery
That will allow you to flash .zips like customs roms or themes .To access it press "volume down" and "power" buttons simultaneously while booting the phone after removing and reinserting the battery or just untick the fastboot mode in Settings>Power and switching it off then pressing the key combo while booting.
  • Download A310E Recovery.zip
  • Extract it anywhere on your PC (eg. C:\Recovery)
  • Connect your mobile via usb cable and put in "charge only" and enable "USB debugging"
  • To enable USB debugging Settings>Applications>Development>Tick USB debugging then select OK.
  • Now run the recovery.bat file.
  • Your phone will now go off(Don't panic) and reboot into bootloader
  • Then the recovery will be installed.

Done! You got the recovery installed if no errors, you can now install any compatible .zip ROM or app.

Note: I edited the recovery.bat and removed any unnecessary commands so no errors occur
Done! You got the recovery installed if no errors, you can now install any compatible .zip ROM or app.

4. ROOT the device
  • Place this Superuser.zip file somewhere in the microSD first.
  • Go into Recovery mode ("volume down" + "power")
  • Install Superuser.zip with the option "install .zip from sd" from the recovery menu.

Quote:Note: After rooting dont restore to factory setting if you don´t want to end up in a bootloop, if this or similar happens the only solution yet (fully functional) is installing this Asian rom or this Custom rom by me. Make a backup first and wipe cache and rom partition with the option in the recovery menu.

With the Asian rom everything runs perfect with the disadvantage that only English and Chinese is available. You can modify the applications that come with it by removing and adding the ones you want before flashing it in recovery (open /system/app folder inside the zip and modify the system apps installed, just be careful not to eliminate necessary system apps).

How to increase Internal Memory of HTC Explorer

Configuring Your SD Card to use as Internal Memory with LINK2SD:

1. On your PC:

Download and install MiniTool Partition
Wizard onto your PC/Laptop.


2. On your Explorer:
  • This app needs root privilege.
  • To root your mobile follow this guide.
  • Install Link2SD from Android Market onto Explorer. It is a free download.


3. Creating Secondary Partition on Your SD Card:

You now need to create a secondary partition on your microSD memory card that will enable you to use Link2SD.

Note: We will use MiniTool Partition Wizard to create a secondary partition on your microSD card. This partition can be ext2, ext3, ext4 or FAT32. We will use FAT32 as it is supported on all phones and should lead to less troubleshooting later (and the stock kernel of explorer only supports the fat32 partition,if you have any custom kernel with ext2,3,4 support i suggest using ext4 ). You can use any partition manager of your choosing, but the steps below guide you through MiniTool Partition Wizard.

There is no need to wipe your memory card when going through this process, just ensure you have at least 0.5GB to 1.0GB of free space to make it worthwhile. You also do not need to use a microSD card adapter as the process below creates the partition whilst the phone is connected to your PC.

  1. Connect your handset to the PC via USB and then launch MiniTool. You should see the details pop up under ‘Disk 2'.

  2. Click on the memory card under Disk 2 in Mini Tool and then in the left pane, press ‘Move/Re-size Partition’. On the blue bar under ‘Size and Location’, move the right arrow towards the left to create the size of the secondary partition desired. In the example below I created a secondary partition with 1018.63MB of space. This value can also be typed in manually in ‘Unallocate Space After’.
    [Image: MiniTool11.jpg]
  3. Once this is done you should see that your memory card is now split into two partitions under Disk 2 of Mini Tool. Right click this new partition and then press ‘Create’.
    [Image: MiniTool12.jpg]
  4. You'll see a pop-up ,just press ‘Yes’ to continue.
  5. You should then see this ‘Create New Partition’ window. Under ‘Create As’ click Primary and then under ‘File System’ click FAT32. Leave the cluster size as default and you can assign whichever drive letter you want. Once finished press OK.

  6. This should bring you back to the main Mini Tool screen. Now hit the ‘Apply’ button on the top-left of the screen, denoted by a tick symbol.

  7. This will bring up another pop-up window and will take several minutes to both re-size and create the secondary partition.

  8. If successful, you should see message below. Congratulations your card is ready to use in conjunction with Link2SD. Restart your handset before moving to the next step.

4. LINK2SD

This application makes it easy for users with root privileges on their phone to move applications to the SD card.

  1. Open the Link2SD app on your phone. You should be greeted with the following menu, check the FAT32 option and click OK.

  2. You will then see the Superuser Request, click ‘Allow’.

  3. Once you see the following message, restart your phone. The app should now be ready to use.

  4. To make sure everything is installed correctly. Click the Menu button and go to ‘Storage Info’. This will show you the internal memory and your two partitions on the memory card. In my case, you can see that the second partition is 1GB(as i've used it for some apps its filled but u must see 1GB free i.e 100% free in your case).

  5. Now you need to move the apps of your choice to the memory card. Click the Menu button and press ‘Multi-select’.
    [Image: link2sd8.jpg]
  6. Choose which apps you want to move by clicking the tick box next to the app. System apps are greyed out and cannot be selected. Link2SD can only move apps that are already on the internal memory. If you have apps already on your SD card, you will need to move them back to the internal memory before you can link them with Link2SD.

  7. If you want to move all of your apps, pressing the multiselect will bring up another menu allowing you to do this by selecting select all.

  8. Once you have chosen which apps you want to move, you then need to hit the menu button and press ‘Actions’, which will bring up the following menu. Press ‘Create Link’.
    [Image: link2sd11.jpg]
  9. Leave all three check boxes ticked and press OK. Link2SD will now do its work and move/link the selected apps to your memory card.
    [Image: link2sd12.jpg]
  10. Once finished, you should see that the apps you have moved have ‘Linked -> SD Card’ in orange font in the Link2SD app list. Reboot your phone.
    [Image: link2sd13.jpg]
  11. Congratulations your phone is now using Link2SD! You should now go to Settings by pressing the menu button and configure how you would like Link2SD to work. The main decision here is whether you want to Auto Link newly installed apps to the memory card. Given that you’ve gone through the hassle of installing Link2SD we suggest you enable Auto Link and make worrying about your internal memory a thing of the past.

Now Never Worry About Internal Memory afer doing this.
