Golden Kernel for Htc Evo Lte observations and suggestions...
what i've learned thus,
I don't like to see see apple, samsung, google monoplizing the smartphone biz. So we got try and keep Htc alive competativeIy. I recently sold a gnex and bought a Evo Lte with a broken camera. (I found out the ribbon gets unplugged and has taken apart and reasembled.)
So the stepsI I used to get unlocked/rooted/s-off are update all factory firmware/rom. Unlock/recovery via windy kids toolkit. 2.09 hboot 3.16-17 Then moonshine s-off. I got stuck with test 3 dots on windows. Managed to get it to work on lunbuntu linux. So when You get the twrp recovery save the stock 3.17 back it up so u can use it with #'s carrier settings, then you are free to try other roms.
As far as custom roms go to escape bloatware I've found 4.3 with gapps to be unstable. 4.2 builds are the way to go I got rootbox on now. Just with my screen was amoled instead of LCD to take advatage of the blackness. Going white wallpaper or maybe try Avatar 4.2.2
As far as kernels go, I finally got Golden Kernel on my Gnex after many trials and it greatly improved performance. I've heard of we have kernel switching problems and anykernel helps, but info is sparse. If somebody with skills can make this work for us it would awesome.
That was a Jeeko kernel. I like to stream adobe flash in a floating browser. Problem is it is unstable until I flashed this.
