Details:

HTC introduced SmartSync with Sense ICS (all devices)
Unfortunately HTC messed it up again because there is no interface to control this feature.

HTC SmartSync forces the WiFi and data connections to disconnect after 15 minutes screen off time between the hours of 00:00 and 07:00 am.

For some this isn't an issue and can ignore this thread, but for some it is important to have a constant data or WiFi connection during night (for example so that mail can sync etc).

This app is built using the HTC OpenSense SDK and works as a simple toggle to disable HTC SmartSync allowing you full control over your data and WiFi states. It works on all devices running ICS Sense 3.6 and above (note: I have not tested it on Sense 5 but in theory it should work). Unlike the original app by j4n87 or indeed the venom tweak for this, this app does actually work on JellyBean.

This app does not require root.

The PRO version of this app adds the ability to reboot the device directly from the app (this feature does require root access).
Disclaimer:

I am not responsible if your data connection still disconnects and you miss important mails etc.

Hi Jonny,

I using ARHD 7.2 for Sensation and wondering is there a way I can using the smart sync for 24 hours instead of 7 hours. This will help me save more battery.

Await your revert.

The values for time are hardcoded into the original code, you would have to decompile the relevant jar file and edit the smali to do this.
