    If this is already answered somewhere, please point me to that thread. However, what ROMs for the Evo have Sense 2.0? Thanks.

    To my knowledge the z ports and inspire port are the only with 2.0. Basically ports from phones that have 2.0 as it hasn't actually made it to the EVO yet.

    Yeah I tried MikZ. It seems fine, but I don't like the fact that 4G is missing. Some of the Sense 2.0 options are cool, but it isn't anything that AOSP doesn't already offer.

    The rooted ROM does not include any radio updates, which it looks like you'll need. Presumably, those are in the original download. I'm downloading that now to verify. If that is the case, we'll need to put something together to flash them if someone hasn't already.

    EDIT: Actually, it looks like people are flashing this without new radios/pri/nv (i.e. the standalone rooted version). That matches up with previous updates (new sw version with older radios). Presumably, flashing new radios, but staying on an older ROM still won't work. Too early to tell on that one. Also, it looks like this is not Sense 2.0.

    Yeah, this definitely doesn't have Sense 2.0. It's a test build, with some improvement to Sense, so there's no telling if it will be included later or not. Until then, it looks like I totally hijacked a thread :). Maybe we should start a new one for this.

    So is it Sense GB? I haven't read the xda thread yet.

    It's an official test build of GB for the Evo with Sense, but it's still Sense 1.0. Clark44 of xda is already working on including Sense 2.0. We'll see how that goes soon.

    Nice. Sense 2.0 with gingerbread would be the ultimate.

    Yeah I saw that. Did you run the test build? My dl failed at 40 and I was on 3g so I scrapped it till now. Just got net back.

    They got it rooted already?
