    im new to the evo (got a new one as part of an advance exchange of an epic 4g) and i gotta say so far i love it. the root process seems a bit more in depth than on my old epic but i think i can muddle through. what i need more than a little bit of help on is choosing a rom. im running gingerbread 2.3.3 currently and kinda love the htc sense. im looking for a rom where everything (or as close as u can get) works. there are so many roms for the evo out there. if it helps at all i was running SRF ( [ROM]SyndicateROM Frozen 1.1.0 (Takiya) :: EC05/1.3ghz/NoCheckboarding :: 3/27 - xda-developers )
    on my epic.
    thanks in advance for any advice and sorry for such a rambling post.

    welcome to the forums!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    try mikg2.50 and if you want what the evo3d has try the mik3d. it is still in beta, but everything works and sense 3.0 is awesome!

    Why choose one? Flash them all untill you find one you like then flash them all again :). But yes Mik3D is the one I keep coming back to, or EVOlvedROM... I can't decide.

    checkout the roms/kernel sticky. it is pretty much up to date with all the current roms out there. try any of the sense 2.1 and sense 3.0 roms.

    Its sense so i can do the prl thing at will, and just the overall smoothness of it. I still run launcher pro and beautiful widgets etc etc so it looks alot like cm7, but just behaves differently. I actually froze some of the sense stuff with TiB pro tho LoL it just kept running in the background even tho i had NOTHING to do with it!! Ive not noticed any lagging by freezing that crap, but i have noticed a better battery life :D

    this might be a silly question but id rather ask than mess up my phone. will mikg 2.5 work with revolutionary?

    not that silly...well maybe a little:D

    revolutionary is just a tool that will do three things basically
    1.it gives you s-off which is your securities of your phone.
    2.it will unlock nand protection so that you can change permissions and read and write to the system partitions (like flashing a rom).
    3.it will give you a rooted stock rom with a custom recovery

    after that the future is wide open. you can now flash anything and do anything you want to your phone. you can leave revolutionary behind. you can delete the su file.

    SO far... this is my fav rom... However, the battery life (in my case) has been either worse than stock, or equal to... For me, this is no good, cuz I use my phone a lot, and am in the woods a lot, with no power source for miles, so I'm about to try some AOSP for the 1st time...

    I should add, there were 2 reasons I rooted my phone in the 1st place... 1st, is the fact that sprints GB ota eff'd my phone up, it became laggy, certain things either didnt work, or didnt work well, and the battery life nosedived after the ota,
    2nd... Well, I want more battery life than what I had with the froyo that came with the phone, and from the reading I've done, AOSP is prolly gonna do that for me, but I guess we shall see....

    Really do like the breed rom tho... its just sexy and smooth....

    If you're looking to theme, try Myn's RLS1 Synergy. There are many themes and such to enhance your phone to your liking;)

    [ROM] Synergy - [RLS1+GodMode 08/05/2011] - Now With Warm Sprinkles! - xda-developers



    I would suggest trying the non GodMode version first;)
