    Even though this is a BETA release of Evervolv for the Eris, it is stable and has no significant bugs.
    I would appreciate it if you posted any issues, questions, or other feedback in this thread...don't be afraid to speak up.

    To install: boot to recovery, nand backup, full wipe(data + dalvik-cache + cache), delete .android_secure from the sdcard, flash evervolv, flash gapps, reboot, and enjoy!
    A full wipe is NECESSARY if you are coming from a different ROM!

    *ROM * GAPPS * CHANGELOG*
    Download @ evervolv.com


    *SCREENSHOTS*
    Check them out here!


    *EXTRAS*
    Find them HERE in the 2nd post.


    *SOURCES*
    Evervolv: HERE
    Kernel: HERE


    *Q&A*
    Is this CM7?
    No, this is a build that started from AOSP. However, some of the fixes and few features have been derived from the CyanogenMod Team.

    What do desirec and Eligo mean?
    DesireC was the device codename given by HTC before getting it's official name - Eris. Starting backwards, the C stands for CDMA and then continue on...E-R-I-S(ed).
    Each supported device also has a short latin word as an Evervolv-specific codename. Eligo is the codename chosen for the Eris. It means to pick out or choose in Latin.

    How social is the evervolv team?
    You can join us on IRC, irc.freenode.net #evervolv (webchat).
    Also, you can follow @preludedrew & @MongooseHelix on twitter for updates and the status of Eve[/QUOTE]rvolv.

    It seems nice here and I'm looking forward to becoming part of this community. You all were just thinking about how you needed more Hoosiers around right? ;)
    Hope you guys like it and be sure to let me know if there's anything you'd like to see fixed/changed.

    Love this ROM, stable, fast..excellent

    Any chance of adding a way changing the email font size. Need glasses to read standard fonts (too old!)

    Thanks again

    I got to looking around at fonts and someone made the default font in Evervolv, sony sketch, 30% larger. So if you like it and just want it bigger, flash the attached EV_font_larger.zip from recovery. If you prefer the default android font which is bigger than normal sony sketch, you can flash the attached stock_font.zip in recovery.

    There's also a lot fonts that you can also flash from recovery in this thread:
    350+ Flashable and "Edified" Font Packs - xda-developers
    And screenshots of quite a few here:

    I have yet to run evervolv since the Eris is used by my wife now but I'm guessing it doesn't have spare parts.... It can be installed free from the market and has an option to change the font size. It will keep the same font and will be system wide but just thought I'd throw that out there as an option as well :)

    It does have spare parts and I was going to mention that but it doesn't end up changing the font sizes within most apps. The email body text is the same size whether spare parts is set to "extremely large" or "extremely small". Nothing can just be simple these days :)

    I've added some addons, extras, & info to the 2nd post that will hopefully be useful to some. Feel free to post, send a PM, or talk to me on IRC if there's other stuff that you think would be good to add as it is a WIP. One thing I'd like to also do is try and keep a tentative changelog that is kept updated to reflect what I'm planning/working on for the next release. I see it as a pretty easy way for me to keep you all updated on what to expect and make adjustments based on your feedback.

    That second post is going to be really useful beyond just use with this ROM. Thank you for taking the time to get all of those links together.

    1.2.0b3 Released - OP Updated
    Get the changelog and download the zip HERE

    I'd recommend a full wipe before updating but you can try with just wiping cache+dalvik. Just know that I haven't tested flashing over b2 and you could run into issues.


    For anybody that would prefer an ODEX build of v1.2.0b3 - Download Here
    I'm thinking about how to best have a link to the ODEX version included on the website so until that happens, I'll just post it here.

    Have version 2.3.4 with associated google apps loaded. Trying to run Google Maps in Navigate mode and GPS won't lock. Any suggestions on how to fix? Mapquest works just fine, but prefer Maps.

    When will version 2.3.5 be available for the EVO 4G?

    This is the Droid Eris forum. You may want to ask this question in the EVO forum instead.
