AlterROM Redux (Codename: CHIMERA) is a custom Android ROM for the HTC Evo 4G (Supersonic) which aims for optimal speed, rock solid stability and a high level of customization. Based on a highly optimized version of the 4.67 OTA update, but with most of the SenseUI removed, AlterROM gives you the stability of stock without all of the overhead of Sense 1.0. Utilizing the powerful AROMA Installer, AlterROM gives you the power to choose exactly which modifications you would like in your ROM when you flash, from alternative launchers to custom kernels and everything in-between. AlterROM aims to allow you to make your phone truly yours!

Installation Instructions
1) Backup Apps/Settings & Do a Nandroid backup
2) If coming from another ROM (even the original AlterROM), Wipe all through recovery
3) Flash update zip & follow on-screen instructions
4) Reboot
5) Give the ROM a few minutes to settle on first boot. Depending on how many optional apps you've installed it can take some time for the everything to startup and the performance to normalize. Be patient.
6) Enjoy!

Prompt
AlterScript
*Included in AlterROM Redux as of v1.0.1

AlterScript is a script created to maintain AlterROM. It is still a W.I.P. and some features (such as Odex) are experimental. Always make sure you have a good NANDroid backup before doing any system wide changes. Use at your own risk. YMMV.

For best results, it's recommended to run AlterScript through ADB, rather than directly on the device. Not sure why, but the Odex option will occasionally freeze the phone. Nothing is damaged, but it requires a battery pull (or adb reboot) to recover.

Location on AlterROM: /sdcard/AlterROM/scripts/
Download Latest Version: Current in AlterROM Redux v1.0.1*

Options:
  • Odex AlterROM (Experimental)
    If you odex AlterROM, you'll need to immediately reboot to recovery and wipe cache and dalvik-cache. Script will reboot device upon completion. Also, you will need to reodex after every version or mod flash and possibly clean install some version.
  • Re-optimize Performance
    This will re-optimize performance settings to AlterROM defaults. Nothing more, nothing less.
  • Cleanup AlterROM
    Coming soon...

Attached some to the OP. Note that the background is not the default, as I have not figured out how to set that in GO Launcher EX by cooking, and the Lockscreen shown is the default GO Locker, which is not installed in my initial release. ROM comes with the standard Android lockscreen.

I wanted this rom to be as stripped and customizable as possible from flash.

Nicely done, Did you remove every possible sense related item (Without breaking the ROM of course)? I been wanting one like that which can give the most possible AOSP like experience. Going to give this a try.

Thanks. TBH, I played around with other launchers (LauncherPro & ADW.Launcher), but I liked GO Launcher EX the best. This is actually my first time using it at all.

I like Sense, but I can't theme to save my life, yet... wanted a little more than stock and to give more freedom to the users.

IMO, you could still release your ROM. Tommytomatoe's base is a LOT more optimized than mine is right now. I thought about using it myself, but decided it would be more beneficial for me to learn what was done.

Yes, as far as I can tell. I left in the Music, Calculator, Sound Recorder and Weather apps (maybe a couple others that are Sense themed), because they looked better with the ROM than some of the market alternatives that I found.

I have plans to try to theme everything I can to fit more with the default look of GO Launcher EX, but I'm still very new to theming.
