1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

Just rooted my phone. Installed Titanium Backup Pro, but can't use the application.

    Hey everyone, thanks for any help in advance!

    I rooted my phone successfully (I think) using the method laid out here:

    http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all...ooting-dummies-guide-gingerbread-edition.html

    After rooting, I paid for and installed this program through the marketplace:

    https://market.android.com/details?...iY29tLmtlcmFtaWRhcy5UaXRhbml1bUJhY2t1cFBybyJd

    The app is not in the app list on my phone. When I go back to the marketplace and find it in "my apps" and click on it, it says it is installed but the "open" option is greyed out. Does this mean that the root was somehow unsuccessful?

    Extremely confused,

    Mogus

    No, you just forgot to download the actual app.
    The app you paid for is a key to unlock full use of the free version.
    Just download the free app too and you will be set.

    I would go with MikG 3.0


    And you can use ANY of the ROMS on that page, no matter the version of android or sense

    I have not changed recoveries. I followed these instructions exactly:

    So I think I am still with clockwork mod. I guess what you're saying is that I should switch recoveries to amon ra using these instructions before I flash a new rom?

     
  8. Rxpert83

    Rxpert83 Dr. Feelgood

    Exactly. The changing recoveries portion of the guide will walk you through it.

    CWM is just buggy and you can prevent a lot of problems by using Amon Ra to make sure you get a good wipe before flashing. Also download Superwipe (should be in the flashing portion of the guide)

    Okay, successfully switched recoveries to Amon Ra.

    Another question regarding this section:

    How do I find the backup on my SD card to transfer it to my computer via USB? Where is it located?
     
  11. Rxpert83

    Rxpert83 Dr. Feelgood

    Its in a folder called Nandroid if you make it with amon ra. If you made it with clockwork..... nandroids are recovery specific so just make another.

    If you used clockwork it should be in the clockwork folder on the sd card


    (there is a recovery that can use both, but for the time being lets get you up and running your first custom rom, we can switch recoveries again later)

    By the way, +1 to MikG, it's the best ROM on the Evo (IMHO of course).

    Once you get the hang of it, I would also recommend gingerbread-evo-deck which can be found in my signature, but get familiar with your new setup first. Pretty soon, you're going to be flashing roms every other day like the rest of us.

    I flashed MikG, and I have to admit... this is pretty sweet. I'm only beginning to understand the possibilities. Thanks again guys. Will I ever have to update it? What if I just leave it on my phone for 6 months plus?
     
  15. ocnbrze

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    that will be up to you. if there is ever another update for the evo, just wait for the devs to create a rooted update version. then all you will have to do is flash the update and you are updated.

    never accept an ota, that will either brick your phone or unroot you.

    Mik makes a lot of updates to his ROMs...the 3.0 version hasn't had any updates for about 3 weeks, which is honestly about as long as Mik goes without pushing out a new update. But this version is so solid that if you never wanted to flash anything else, you'd probably be totally happy just keeping this forever. I'm running it at the moment and it's the first Sense rom I have consistently ran in quite awhile.

    This is what I was worried about. Is ota an update from HTC? Not sure I get it exactly.

    The developer might offer updates if he feels like it needs it or he wants to add or change something.

    you might get the flashaholic bug we have and decide to explore that rom and kernel page too...

    You can stay on that rom forever if you want though. Might need to wipe cache and dalvik cache in recovery at some point, if the rom starts to get laggy or some app starts acting nuts, that usually helps.

    You should make a nand of this setup now and another after you get it set up the way you want it.

    You should go into settings and about phone and updates and uncheck htc updates. You don't want to accept ota updates now. the roms are alrady better and the updates might bork your phone. any new good thing that shows up, the developers will cook it in.

    Thanks for the info. A question about Nandroid backups:

    The size of the backup file on my SD card in the nandroid folder is 583 MB. If I create another now, will it overwrite the current backup? I don't want to keep too many of these backups on the card because I only have a 8 GB SD card. Can I remove the old ones and save them on my computer and only keep the most current on the SD card?

    It will not overwrite your prior nandroids. They will both be in the folder. You can delete or transfer to your computer for safekeeping any nandroids you no longer need. I usually only keep my latest on the card, and a few that I know work on my computer or backed up "on the cloud" somewhere.


    Also as far as updates go, mik usually does flashable zip updates where you dont have to wipe the full ROM and start fresh......which is nice.

    Wipe dalvik & cache, flash update, restart, yayyy

    After I'm all finished, can I turn fastboot back on or does that need to stay off?
     
  23. dustwun77

    dustwun77 Endeavor to Persevere :)

    I have left it off. the phone does start up more rapidly with it on, but it is never completely off.

    If it is on and you need to get to recovery, which happens sometimes when flashing, you won't be able to get to it with fastboot on. easy fix then though, just pull the battery for a few and put it back in and try again.

    I just leave it off, personal preference as far as i know.

    Okay, I'll leave it off too then. It's not really that much of an inconvenience as I don't restart my phone all that often. Just trying to make sure I know what not to do. Thanks!
