    I think the best way is to read the things in post #2 of this guide...

    http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all...-rooting-gingerbread-2-3-5-dummies-guide.html

    It will help you to make a nandroid backup first (a must do before flashing anything) and flashing roms.
    Then read the rom's op for additional instructions.
    Do you know what recovery you have?

    o.k...I have heard issues with that recovery but we can change the now or later..(need to know if you are s-off or s-on first for that)
    Amon ra or smelkus mod recovery are very good recoveries.
    I use smelkus, but like I said, need to know if you are s-on or s-off...
    Just wipe really well with that recovery...perhaps 3 times....wipe all 3 times EXCEPT SD CARD...do not wipe sd card.;)

    You mean like cm9 or cm 10 etc.? Not sure as
    I dont run cm myself, and the whole nightlys and cm roms confuse me.
    However, there is a cm9 based rom that PapaSmurf has put out and I believe an update will be coming for it, and when it updates, I will be trying it.
    See this link
    [ROM] [LOTK] SmurfMod9 (8/1/12) - xda-developers

    Otherwise, currently I am on DecksReloaded, which will also update soon.

    Ah, gotcha.
    Something better is matter of opinion. I used to be on MikG v3.11 when I first rooted.....very nice sense rom that's close to stock that I themed out with all the themes/mods for it.
    Then I found Decks Reloaded...AOSP based rom....very quick on my phone..quicker than MikG. AOSP roms, like cm, tend to be quicker than sense roms such as Mikg.
    Anyhoo, just check out the links biker and I have provided and try some for yourself:D
    If you have any flashing questions just ask...!

    The first ROM that biker recommended in the 2nd post, is a great ICS ROM for the EVO 4G to try out. Savoca's Strike!

    Loaded the CM7.2 "stable" but all it does is constantly repeat the splash screen.

    I just want a stable ROM with Sense that is secure and doesn't have all the Sprint bloat.

    Any help appreciated.

    Yeah, I thought about trying that but his download page is dead.

    Does not bode well.

    Found it here:

    Which recovery do you have? I would highly recommend the Smelkus v4.3 recovery. If you're stuck at the splash screen, my guess is that you didn't wipe everything properly. If you move to smelkus recovery, in the wipe options, do the top 4 wipes, then flash rom, flash gapps.

    Even if you're not interested in cm7 anymore, I would still move to smelkus recovery;)

    MikG 3.11 works quite well, and better than OEM ROM.

    Energy (same developer as Energy for WP6?) looks like it has good potential also.

    Sticking with MikG 3.11 for now as it is very capable.

    smelkus is a recovery while titanium backup is an app. they do completely different things. tb backs up apps and its data and can freeze and uninstall apps. smelkus can make nandroid backups, wipe and flash roms and such.

    so what recovery do you have?

    Hmmmm......I wondered about that.

    Would the rEVOlutionary program I used to root it be one?

    You mean, a recovery? No revolutionary is just the program:)
