Okay gang. So I have my EVO 4G. Some time ago I rooted it using unrevoked. Recently I've seen a message on my phone about the 4.24.651.1 update. I figured I should research this before applying it since I'm rooted. That led me here. I've learned a few things... 1. You seem to be able to run AOSP or Sense as my UI. The EVO factory is Sense (older 2.x version though not the fancy 3.x). 2. There seem to be a ton of ROM's for this device, I'm having a hard time deciding which one to run. Leaning towards "[ROM] 08/03/11 | SPRINT LOVERS | 2.3.3 | 4.24.651.1 | Radio/Wimax/PRI All-In-One" as it seems to be as close to factory as I can get, which is nice. Questions: 1. Should I leave my factory kernel in place? If not, why? 2. Why would someone go AOSP vs Sense? 3. I'm a "factory" type person and usually the first thing I do when I get a new PC is to reload the OS to get everything back to factory without bloatware, Is it save to assume AOSP does this? 4. Are the Radio/WiMax/PRI all the same regardless of kernel/ROM you use? I'm having a hard time understanding those items. That's all for now, thanks!
