Hi folks,
1st timer. I have just managed to unlock the boot loader and root my EVO 3D GSM that is on HTC's stock android 4.0.3*ROM.*


Is it a nonsense to ask if I can immediately flash an old HTC stock gingerbread ROM *or am i strictly limited to just ICS ROMs ?

Is it worthwhile to even have stock gingerbread on the evo3D? My reasons are to get smooth 1080P 3D video playback that seems impossible on stock ICS. Tell me if you have direct experience of any custom ICS ROM that has flawless 1080P 3D video playback and I will gladly try that.

3D functions are important to me.


Thanks in advance for helpful replies

Try MX player from the playstore
And u can't flash the gingerbread rom because the Stock ICS hboot(1.53) it's not compatible with non ics rom,u need to downgrade our hboot to flash gingerbread,jellybean or kitkat roms

I have tried MX Player but could not work out how to force playback vids in 3D. So it was no use.

Any EVO3D owners on anything other than stock ICS here have L R view vertically
misaligned 3D mode overlay menus and choppy 1080p
SBS squished video playback?

The video here shows what I am finding... Thanks for watching.

I have hboot1.53 so I'll steer clear of a stock Gingerbread downgrade for now thanks
Glad to hear you dont have dropped frames for 1080p 3D playback in MX Player but how do you reliably engage the 3D screen, what ROM do you run and do you have the 3D overlay LR overlay being vertically misaligned like I showed at the end of my video?

I now have 2 Evo3Ds, one on Stock ICS and one on Stock gingerbread. Both exhibit the same dropped frames for 3D 1080p playback and much the same problem of vertically maligned menu items in 3D apps. Although I found the camera app menus is lined up properly under gingerbread, but other apps are off by a couple of pixels. Annoying...

So I CONCLUDE that the evo3D ICS upgrade did not introduce these 2 issues... They existed in stock gingerbread too.

I think the HTC EVO 3D isn't able to play Full HD 3D video.
1: The display can't even reach HD resolution
2: The GPU isn't optimized for Full HD video

I've also tried to solve the problem with overclocking, but the only results were heat and a short battery life.

The only working workaround for me is using a video converter with 3D and downscaling support. There you have to decrease the resolution and the bitrate. After that you're able to play the video on your device.
