The n00b Friendly Evita Q&A Thread!


Why?

OK, I noticed we don't have anything like this in our Evita forum so I've created this thread as a safe place for new members to ask questions.

If you're a new member you probably have a bunch of questions, this is a place for you to come and ask anything you want to without fear of persecution.

Even if you're not a new member, please feel free if there's something you want to know.

I'd also like to encourage some of our valuable knowledgeable members to help out with answering some questions here.


What You Need To Do

All I ask is that you search properly before posting, it is in our rules after all. It's more than likely the questions you want to ask have already been asked and answered before, it's just a matter of finding them. The Evita FAQ thread would be a good place to start. Also, this thread is at a point now where I've covered pretty much any question you could think of asking, so please use the search feature to find your answer because I can almost guarantee it exists here already. If you've searched thoroughly and can't find the answer, or if you don't understand the answer, please go ahead and post here. Please provide the following information if you're going to ask a question:
-The model of your phone (at&t, Telstra, Rogers etc).
-Your bootloader details (the first five lines).
-Your current ROM/kernel.
-Your current recovery.
-All events that lead to your current situation.
-What you've tried already (detail please, don't say "I've tried everything").
-Anything else that's relevant.
Please don't ask which ROM is best/most stable/fastest/prettiest/can eat the most hot dogs. No matter which way you word it, the question is not allowed. To say one ROM is better infers that others are inferior in some way. This is disrespectful to the devs who spend their spare time bringing us these ROMs free of charge. Each user has their own taste anyway so there is no best ROM. Check out the available ROMs and flash a few, you'll find out pretty quickly which one is best for you, plus that's half the fun anyway.


FAQ

For frequently asked questions please see the FAQ thread here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2136172

There is a great deal of very useful information in this thread so I'd suggest having a read there before posting in here. If there's a question that hasn't been asked there, or if you don't quite understand one of the answers please feel free to ask here.

ok. I'll bite. Especially since I don't have to start a new thread!

A while back I flashed the Telstra OTA to get the 2.15 Hboot and see if it worked better than the AT&T 3.18 (2.14 Hboot.)
Probably not the best idea but I didn't know any better at the time. I forgot all about this since it was running fine even though I'm in the US and not Australia.

I see many AT&T folks on the 3.18 RUU with 2.14 Hboot and I wonder, does it matter? I also seem to be immune to some of the WIFI and Data problems I notice many folks have on the 4.3 and 4.4 Roms.

My Radio: 1.31a.32.45.16_2_10.141.32.34aL
The one I should have been on with 3.18: 0.24p.32.09.06_10.130.32.34

I'm guessing that the Telstra and AT&T radio workings are very similar. I see my settings from time to time and the bug to change it to what it is "supposed" to be kicks me. Should I RUU back to AT&T even though every thing appears to be functioning fine?

You needn't change your firmware if everything is working ok. The fact that a radio is labeled Telstra or at&t or Rogers doesn't really mean a great deal, they'll operate on all networks. I'm in Australia and I'm using the Telstra 2.40 radio but for a very long time I was using the at&t 3.18 radio with great results.

I'm not a noob, but will the Evita ever see Sense 5.5?

I know you're not a noob

I don't think anyone here can really answer that definitively. There's been speculation that the upcoming at&t update might be Sense 5.5 or Android 4.3 or possibly both, but in the end it's just speculation.

Well I know the Evita could run it beautifully. Because the HTC One Mini just got the android 4.3 sense 5.5 update and the phone has almost the same specs as us except bigger camera and a newer processor.

Yes there's no question about whether our device can run it, it absolutely could. I guess the question is will HTC release it to us? Our phone can quite easily handle Zoe but HTC claimed it wasn't able to. Many people believe this was a ploy by HTC to get people to purchase their new flagship devices in order to experience Zoe, and I have to agree with this theory. So, what I want to know is will HTC use the same kind of strategy to deny us Sense 5.5?
