I am new so I see that Kings rom seems to be popular but are there anymore then that and cm7?
well that depends on what you are interested in
mikfroyo 4.6, koni elite iii, fresh 3.5 (he has a beta of a leaked GB), and don't forget kings unleashed r5
kings gb r3, cm7 (bunch of different themes ie first blood), salvage mod, destoryer, and miui.
you can get all of them in ref#2 in my sig.
Good looking out. Can you post a view of some of these on this page
If you go here: http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/284413-roms-kernels-download-page.html there is a pretty substantial list of roms and other mods along with the links to their threads on XDA. Most have screen shots of the rom.
Man this is awesome for real. Im using kingsromr5..but ima do the blue ballah one next..if some one could come up with a black and gold rom with egytian type deal it would be pimp as hell.
I'm sorry I don't have anything useful to add to this thread, I can't get over how funny the OP's screen name is! Just saying it out loud makes me laugh!
FRENCHY!!!! How dare you stray off topic in a thread!!! oh wait, i do that all the time... OOOHHHH!!!! BRAINSTORM!!! im gonna make a new username!! "threadjacker"... hows that sound? appropo? (sp?)
oh, and gorilla.... CM7 is sooooo worth checkin out at the very least and use the tiamat kernel in my sig if ya feel so inclined
GorillaBang is the shit huh!!! NamRedrum is what I used to use but I have grown up a lil bit LMAO..naw on the real its just something that i put out soon as I got my evo
i've been using Myn's since RLS 2, but i'm looking into experimenting new roms.
I tried CM5 when it was out, but I didn't like AOSP because i thought it was ugly... what do you guys recommend? Is AOSP worth trying to get used to? And what's the big difference between that and Sense. (i.e. better battery? less compatibility etc.)
dude i was sooooo like you. i was a sense guy all the way. i tried a few aosp roms that were out but they were to buggy at the time. but then i flashed kings gb r2 and then r3 aosp roms which are based off of cm188.8.131.52. and i have never looked back to sense again. aosp roms now have everything working. i tried the latest r4 but i did not like the theme very much. i love the setup in my sig. the tiamat kernel is awesome!!!! you can get the rom and kernel from my sig ref#2
thanks ocnbrze, i really appreciate it, I think i will have to try it!
random question: do you use handcent on cm7? and if you do, is scrolling through your list of conversations really choppy (it's slow for me on myn so i had to switch to gosms)
I just use standard cm7 with a custom splashscreen and bootanimation with a solid and tweaked kernel and launcher pro... launcher pro aka LP has a ton of customizing options and color choosing options. Of course your own background is a must etc etc I guess once I think about it, there's a few more things too lol I turned on the animation audio too which ill advise can be a bad thing if you're restoring from a nandroid that has it enabled lol
yeah i use handcent on cm7. myn's has always been slow and laggy for me when i first tried it. cm7 is awesome!
+1 i really love lp as well. it just seems a lot more zippy then adw.
Ya the member part when using the phandroid app really sets of his user name...lol
I just wiped and went over to CM184.108.40.206/Tiamat 3.3.8, i can say the battery life is already noticeably better than it was with Myn's 2.2/netarchy-sbc and it is also much snappier and faster.
However, this AOSP rom has a two things that I miss that sense had.
a timer/stopwatch app
Smartdial (when i dialed in sense it wasn't a number, i dialed as if typing someone's name with T9)
what can i do about this?
Download a stop watch app
and when you go to dialer hit the magnifying glass on your phone and start typing
Ah well what about any feature that if i start dialing the first few digits, it has gives me a list of people that match up?
and also visual voicemail, does AOSP have anything like that?
It will if you hit the magnifying glass, I think...
You can still set up vvm, if not most use google voice
what do you think about this one
[KingsROM][SHIFT 4G] Blakk ODEX...and is it just a shift rom or can regular evo run it?
That was ported from the shift for our evo. You can flash it and I like it very much.
