Welcome fletzie!
Here is an excellent guide for rooting your Evo 4g: (I assume that is what you have :0 )

If you have any questions, just start a new thread and ask my friend.

Just an FYI: All who are waiting for Wimax to shut down before getting another phone, I do see a considerable difference in speed with LTE vs Wimax. All the streaming apps I use through my car while driving. No actual bench info yet but very happy with Sprint LTE here in Atlanta.

You won't be sorry if you did. You still get the user battery swap option as well as sd card expandability. Too bad HTC had to limit our choices. I wouldn't have jumped ship if they didn't.

2 years ago I wouldn't be caught dead with a Samsung. Just goes to show how far this company has gone.

Looks like I am done with the EVO 4G.

I thought I was going to hold off for a quad core HTC, or Samsung Galaxy S4, but I decided to get the EVO V 4G and move to Virgin Mobile. It saves me over half my bill, and is a phone upgrade at the same time. The new phone should be paid for in 4 months. After that, who knows...I'll probably stick with it for a whole year to reel in the savings.

Like most Americans, my paycheck just got hit with a SS tax witholdings increase. The switch will help me lower my bills.

The way the economy is now, prepaid is becoming the way to go especially with more smartphones being offered. I doubt I will ever get a contract again. I'd rather use a dumb phone on a cheap prepaid plan than pay all that money on a 2 year contract.

I'm here to tell you I've been overly pleased with my GN2. Blows away the EVO 4g. Rooted with modified boot animation and launcher...pure love. Of course Samsung is planning to stop using android in the future. We'll see how that hurts their business.

BGR hyped up a story.

At no point has Samsung said that.

They rolled out a replacement for their regional os, Bada.

According to BGR, once again, the sky is falling.

the smart play is not to put all your eggs in one basket.
they will make devices for everyone..
Google
Microsoft
Samsung
Apple ( yes.. parts)

RIM? not even sure they will make it far enough out of the gates..

Kept mine until last Sunday when the battery finally went flatline. Had to dust off the EVO LTE I've had for some time now just incase. It was a great ride. One phone I absolutely enjoyed using.

I have a hot-tubbed EVO 3D, an EVO 4G that is pristine [minus battery and SD Card] (both Sprint; the 3VO has a brand-new Gorilla Gadgets MegaBattery, and back cover); I also have a Samsung Prevail (working - 2gB SD Card), & all have root - I'd trade 'em for anything that'd work with Boost Mobile, that'd run ICS/Jellybean on up.

But, maybe pigs have wings - I'll go to a local shop to trade up

Default It's time to say goodbye...

Last week me phone started going into Car Panel mode randomly throughout the day. I cleaned dalvik cache and cache, I reflashed my ROM, I flashed an old ROM, I froze Car Panel in Titanium Backup, I uninstalled Car Panel in Titanium Backup. But after days of trying I am going to have to say goodbye to my EVO. I truely felt like I gave my phone the equivelant of CPR to a human, doing everything I could think of before I had to call it.

Maybe it is not a complete goodbye, I will still use it for an mp3 player, maybe play some old games, maybe keep it around for a desperate backup situation, but it looks like it is time for me to move on. Whether I wanted to or not, I am being forced to move to another phone.

I am on Sprint and have been holding out for a Nokia phone for what feels like a year. I was eligible for an upgrade over a year and a half ago but I have held onto my Evo because I didn't think there was a better phone or community out there. I have wanted to try a Windows phone for quite awhile now and with Sprint only having 2 Windows phones, I have gone with the HTC 8XT.

It has only been 2 days on this new phone, but I am realizing really quickly that I am going to miss how much help there is out there for certain phones and OS's. This is getting a little long but wanted to say a thank you for all that have answered my questions, developed ROMs, written tutorials, or even asked the question I needed an answer to before I even asked it.

I didn't necessarily talk to some of you, but here is a thank you to some of the people who got this forum going or seemed to have answers to questions that helped me along the way.

twospirits, ocnbrze, Caloy, tube517, dan330, EarlyMon, Matlock, Covert_Death, and most definitely billsmed who seemed like he was the 1st (unofficial) moderator of the Evo forum who put the work into getting all of the information and rumors together.

I completely understand...my OG EVO started acting crazy before I replaced it with my HTC One.

Mine started randomly rebooting itself, and freezing up. Like you, I knew the end of my OG EVO was near.

Lucky for me, my OG EVO started crapping out about the same time the HTC One M7 was launched.

I have to say that I made a great decision, choosing the HTC One.

Bought my Evo in 2010, just ported my number over to AT&T GoPhone tonight, and am on a semi crappy Avail 2 right now. I got tired of Sprint's dropped calls and pathetic data speeds. I don't even care that I don't have unlimited data anymore, Sprint was so slow I never used the data anyways, except for navigation. So, the 2 gigs I get with GoPhone should be just fine.

Hoping to upgrade to a nicer phone in the spring once I recover from xmas purchasing... maybe the Nexus 5.

I'm getting a kick out of reading this thread. Now that you long timers are finally retiring your EVO 4G's, the devices are finding new owners and popularity due to the Freedompop service. I just got a refurbished one from them. It seems like a very nice phone, however the battery life so far is just dreadful compared to more up-to-date smartphones I've used.

[I'll be reading more here about how to maximize the battery life. There are years worth of reading material. Any other Freedompoppers here? Not sure if the Freedompop apps and configuration are especially bad for the battery life? Any suggestions are welcome. I can start a new thread so as not to hijack this one.]

While I personally am not with FreedomPop, go ahead and start a new thread so others can more readily see it, and chime in about your battery issue!!

Ah the Evo

May it be several years old, still by far one of my favorites along side my retired Evo 3D.

Like those better than my LG G2 (bricked now oops ) as well my retired GS3 and current Moto G.

If I could find a way to flash either to Verizon prepaid I'd probably be using one of those 2 at the moment.

Yeah, the EVO was a beast when it came out and has a long shelf life. Now, FreedomPop has revived it.

I still have both of mine but they are collecting dust.

I moved on to several phones after but I'm on the Note 2 now (rooted)

Those of you who still have your EVO 4G's could activate them on FreedomPop BYOD and get some free VOIP calling/texting and data each month. Or consider selling them to someone else who wants to.

Unfortunately, it's not offered in my location, yet. I'll check it out later though

If you are interested in getting the service, it actually does work on 3G in addition to on WiMax. You can sign up even if your address doesn't pass the check. You might just have to enter a location with WiMax coverage on the initial page currently to get around a bug on their site.

As per:
https://forums.freedompop.com/discussion/comment/4415/#Comment_4415

"If you're getting a recaptcha error on the BYOD page, it's an error with the site; freedom pop is aware of it, and presumably working on a fix. HOWEVER you can get around it now. This error only seems to appear if you get the message saying you don't have coverage and you click "Get Anyway" What you have to do is; enter an address on the first page that DOES have coverage. Try 815 Boylston St 02116 (boston apple store) It will say "Great News! FreedomPop service is available in your area." and you can continue to checkout normally. Make sure that you put in your real address when you checkout, though."

I've had my EVO for 4 years now and my new One M8 is being delivered on Monday. I would have kept the EVO until support is completely gone but it's had a rough life. I travel for work a bit and I work in industry (lots of dirty manufacturing facilities). It also comes with me mountain biking, camping, boating, geocaching, and every other rough environment you can imagine. In January the volume button quit working, then the camera. I brought it in to be repaired and the tech bandaged it so I could get some functionality back (he repaired the camera and volume buttons) but a week later the GPS quit working.

I've been eligible for an upgrade for sometime now and decided it was time to get a new phone. I've had HTC for my last 2 phones and I can't say a bad word about the product the company puts out. I rooted this one with Cyanogenmod last year and got a good bump in performance but I need working buttons and GPS on a phone. I can't wait to start playing with the M8, I don't think it will be a disappointment.
