    what synergy did you flash??

    this guide should help you out...just follow the steps

    http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all...ooting-dummies-guide-gingerbread-edition.html

    more than likely you didnt perform a full wipe....you have to wipe the cache, dalvik cache, and data ( i do them 3x each ) then flash the superwipe zip...THEN flash the rom and reboot....

    It took me 3 tries to get Synergy loaded and working correctly. This thing is a demon to get loaded. Wipe cache, data, dalvik 3 times, factory reset twice, flash super wipe 3 times... and I finally got it running stable. Then again it lasted me all of a day before I was back to my comfortable home on Mik3D... :) I did like how customizable Synergy was though.

    yeah i flashed the godmode one and it took almost 45 mins to boot up. it took forever. this rom you need to be patient with and make sure you have plenty of battery before flashing it.

    I had zero issues flashing it ... just takes a long time to boot up ... so does that new Merge rom !!! Anyways ... if this is the first rom you flashed im guessing there was an issue with wiping. You must be very thorough. They they just stated ... wip davik cache and cache and data 3x each .... run superwipe zip .... then flash. You should be good to go !

    The flashing process of a GodMode rom is what takes so long, after flashing and rebooting the phone, the boot up should be a normal 5-8 min, tops;)

    Mine didn't take quite 45 minutes, but when I finally did get it loaded, the "Godmode" edition that is supposedly twice as fast as an overclocked EVO turns out to be the slowest, laggiest, choppiest ROM I have ever used. I have never seen any cell phone run this slow. There was no EXT partition set up on my SD card, and there were no instructions on whether or not it needs to be done prior to flashing Synergy. If so it needs to be added to the install instructions, if not then this ROM is just a donkey. No offense to Synergy's devs, the other versions are amazing. I was really looking forward to this new method of storing the Dalvik and finally getting to the top of the ever elusive Quadrant scores no matter how irrelevant they are.

    Wow, does it really take that long? I haven't dabbled into GodMode yet.

    And is your avatar from the windows stock photos? It looks kinda familiar, and that's the only place I can think of where I have landscape photos...
    :p

    I just deleted my Synergy nandroid for the 4th time. Forget this rom. It hates my phone or me I don't know but the thing hangs and locks and freezes all over the damn place. Mik3D for me, it even has better options IMO. I'll live without the Synergy skins/mods.

    Synergy god mode wasnt bad for me at all... just used up a lot of space will try it once more once i partition my new sd when i get it

    it is mentioned though that you have to be using amon ra recovery to get god mode to flash maybe thats why your having issues?

    What recovery u got? I had the same issue when I flashed synergy, just after rooting, I went as far as to let it boot for an hour, and still the white screen... I was using clockwork recovery.... someone suggested I try amon, so I did, reflashed synergy+godmode, and rebooted, phone was up and running in normal boot time after that.

    FWIW, when I had issues with godmode, I tried the non-godmode version as well, and had the same issue.... Amon hasn't failed me yet....
