    I rooted my phone with Unrevoked 3 and just installed the FPS fix kernal. For those of you who have not done so yet, I strongly urge you to give it a try. The smoothness of the phone after installing the fix is 10 times better. My FPS went from 30 to 50-55 as measured by Fps2D. I will be observing the battery life over the next couple of days to see if there is any impact on the battery life.

    Now that I have gone this far, I am considering installing a custom ROM. Which ROM's can I install given what I have done so far. As I understand it, by rooting with Unrevoked 3 there will be some that I will not be able to use.

    Thanks!

    Another Unrevoked Root, if you are planning on running CM6(froyo) wich is the hottes ROM(BETA) out right now it wont work with Unrevoked.Unrevocked does not fully unlock NAND.

    U can run FRESH which is pretty good 2 and stable,that what i had when I was Unrevoked and didnt wanted to fully root.

    @exBBuser, did you flash back to stock first or did you go over UR3 with the simple root? how exactly did you do to get from UR3 to where your at now?

    @Alto101, what things did you notice were smoother after the fps fix? like games, scrolling, app opening and closing transition etc.?

    Scrolling, all tansitions and games are all smoother. The whole user experience feels snappier but I cannot say how much is in my head but the scrolling is very noticeable. My wife also has an Evo and comparing her unmodified phone with mine you can easily see the difference while scrolling.

    I rooted with simpleroot and I flashed the kernel I found from toast thats for fresh 1. 0. 1, I then went from cyanogen nightly to bakedsnack and the fps worked on both.

    -Download the zip from this site. [Kernel]netarchy-toastmod, FPS 'fix' for Epson + Nova, now with hdmi - Version 3.7.3c - xda-developers You can choose whether or not you want the overclocking or not. I chose not to when I did it a couple days ago. -

    -After the file downloads put the zip file on your sd card (don't put it in any folders)

    -After that shut down your phone and boot into recovery (clockwork) with the volume down and power button.

    -Go to the choose zip from sd card and select it. (make selections with the power button, scroll with volume keys)

    -Scroll down to netarchy toast mod

    -install it

    -after it installs reboot your phone.

    After it reboots you can install 'fps2d' to confirm that you're running more than 30fps.

    I just looked on the FPS fix release notes and it said it doesn't work with 2.2 roms... that means I can't use CM6 if I flash this FPS fix right?

    None that I can notice. The only issue I have is every 2 days or so my phone goes into a reboot cycle which can only be fixed by a battery pull. Soon after, the 30 FPS cap returns. I just flashed the latest kernal and so far have not had any trouble.

    When the cap has returned I have been very annoyed with how slow and jerky the phone feels. I am really upset that HTC did not give users the option of uncapped FPS or HDMI. I for one would have chosen the uncapped FPS. (I have not tested the HDMI with the kernal fix but from what I have read it works so HTC could give us both options).

    This was happening to me too, the phone would hang and reboot itself. I stopped overclocking and it has been working fine and has not happened again. The 30fps does not return when i reboot though, so not sure what happened there. Plus over-clocking was killing my battery. Had the evo today at the beach with just fps fix and no overclocking and it lasted about 8.5 hours until it reached 17% when i plugged it back in, and the beach has really bad signal so it was probably looking for signal a lot which is bad for the battery, time without signal was 7%. So just the FPS fix does not seem to hurt battery, if it does it is not that much, well worth it.
