    Ok for some reason my evo no longer vibrates no matter what rom i am on. If i use the the up and down volume buttons and choose vibrate it will vibrate. but if my phone is asleep and i get a notification it wont vibrate. Any ideas on how to fix this cause i have no idea, why it will vibrate just fine when i put my phone into vibrate mode instead of silent or ringer but then i get no vibrate when i get a notification..

    I had the same thing happen to me. I was using netarchy's burnt droid when i noticed my phone was no longer vibrating. I searched and found an app called sound manager which i was going to use while i searched for a solution. For whatever reason, after setting up sound manager to vibrate, my phone started vibrating again, even with the app off. I never figured out why it stopped vibrating, but give sound manager a try, hopefully it helps you too.

    My buddies phone I just rooted last week is having the same issue. Well, it's not vibrating at all, no matter what profile he's on. I just had him download sound manager but it's still not working. From what I've read, even stock phones have the problem as well. Something to do with the hardware. Think I'm going to wipe everything and reflash the rom to see if that fixes it. If not, it's unroot time and off to sprint.

    My EVO was rooted using unrevoked. It worked great for a couple of days but know my phone wont vibrate anymore. If anyone has found a fix, that would be great. I've tried the sound manager technique and that didn't work. I unrooted my phone and that didn't work either. I'm all out of ideas 0_o
