[Q] Found me a EVO 4G. Help me root/recovery/ROM, it?
EDIT: Bootloader is now unlocked with S-on
As title says. I found a beat up, but working EVO 4G. Screen is flawless, and everything works (Except the search key back lighting. It flickers on and off, but it, itself works) and the edges are nicked to hell, the battery door is shattered, but somehow stays on, the battery is shot, and runs very hot.
But I'll decide to use this opportunity to throw a custom ROM on it. I have a 1gb Micro SD card I can put in it.
ESN is clean too.
So, it's running Android 2.3.5 (If there's any other info you need to know, just ask)
I know ONLY the basics of this process, like root, recovery, and ROM in this order.
My question/s are/is, which root file will I use, how do I do it, and which recovery, and how. Which ROM (Well, I want preferably a 4.2.X based ROM with stock UI)
A ROM with good battery life, and smooth performance. As close to stock Android as possible.
