    Just rooted last nite to be able to tether. Working great so far, and it got me curious about the FPS fix. How does one flash the fix? Is it noticable and worth the hassle?

    Which version of unrevoked? I used unrevoked3 and am able to flash kernels...gps fix works great. Smooth as butter. There are plenty of directions out there on how to do this.

    boot into recovery (clockwork) then you scroll down to install zip from SD card and press the power button to select it. Then you go to choose zip from SD card and press the power button again to select it. Then you scroll down to the zip file of the FPS fix, I forgot what the exact name of it was it think maybe netarchy. but then you install and then reboot.

    thanks worked perfect for me using unrevoked 3, did not have to use evo switch, getting 53fps right after reboot. I have been using launcher pro and the animations are much more smoother and zippy now.

    hmm? What do you mean run unrevoked again?

    Go to the netarchy link posted above and near the bottom of the NA's post, there's should be a link to 3.7.4 zip download. Download this and put it in your SD card.

    Now, Go get ROMmanager app from market and open.

    If this your first time, you'll have to flash a recovery. Click on the first menu where it says "flash clockwordmod recovery"

    After you have done so, it should ask you to choose HTC evo etc.

    After it installs, click Reboot into Recovery.

    Your phone will now reboot, and it'll go into Recovery menu.

    Which custom rom do you plan on using? I'm guessing if you're just on stock rooted rom, then gen pop build.

    I'm not sure....I'm pretty new to Android (came from an iPhone two weeks ago). I already have unrevoked 3 but I want to fix the FPS issue and also would like to be able to overclock.

    The gen pop is the one I want?

    Is this FPS fix included in Cyanogen already or does this need to be added. I literally just flashed this ROM after seeing someone playing Marvel vs Street Fighter on youtube..Thought I'd be all set after flashing to Cyanogen. How can you tell what your rooted on. I had a IT guy root mine a few weeks ago that was done AFTER the 2.2 update. (the root that took a while for ppl to figure out). I dont want to use the wrong one and lose root.

    Thanks in advance
