    Hello, I picked up the HTC EVO 4G and love it. :D

    I teach Java classes and look forward to learning to write apps for the phone.

    Favorite Apps so far:
    - My Tracks to keep record of mileage when I'm biking and walking.
    - Notebook - random thoughts
    - anything that uses microphone

    I haven't found a good podcast app yet. Anyone?

    Mainly I hope the phone will help me with my productivity with my businesses.

    However, I just lost > 24hrs trying to learn to install Custom ROMs.
    I got root somewhere along the way, but cannot install new ROMs.

    It was frustrating trying to understand things in the tutorials, and not have things work. ROM Manager doesnt want to work on my phone. The IRC android-root channel was quiet, until some guy was a jerk to me.

    I had tried searching forums and the youtube for the best tutorials, but anytime i try to install a custom ROM my phone goes into a boot loop.

    So, hoping to find a friendly environment to be able to explore my phone, understand it, and help others.
