Install
There is a great guide on how to flash a custom ROM here: http://www.freeyourandroid.com/guide..._flash_htc_evo
  • If you're S-ON, make sure you follow the instructions from post #3.
  • This ROM uses Aroma Installer which uses Touch Screen controls. To use touch screen, it is recommended to install 4EXT Recovery using the unstructions in post #3.
  • If you choose to install the ROM without a touch enabled recovery, you can navigate the install using Volume Up/Down and select any options using the camera shutter button.
  • If coming from another Sense 3.6 ROM, wiping data should not be necessary.
  • The install formats system, cache, etc. so there is no need for super wipe scripts.
  • If coming from a Sense 3.0 ROM (or other version), please backup your apps using Titanium Backup and perform a nandroid backup. While flashing the ROM, make sure you wipe data which can be performed during the install
  • Optional: You can flash the latest firmware by following this post using this firmware: PG86IMG.zip
  • Download the ZIP file to your SD card
  • Reboot into recovery and "Install ZIP from SD Card". Follow the Aroma Installer wizard
  • Reboot
Issues
  • If your WiFi isn't working, install WiFix
  • You may run into a problem with missing AOSP Notifications and/or Settings apps. To fix it, reinstall the ROM without AOSP Notifications and Settings, boot up the phone, then reinstall the ROM with AOSP Notifications and/or Settings and it should work.

Instructions

S-ON Users

If your phone is S-ON, you'll need to perform an extra step before or after flashing the ROM. Without flashing the kernel manually, your phone will not boot. This extra step can be automatically performed if you have 4EXT Recovery Touch v1.0.0.5 RC1 or newer installed.

Installing 4EXT Recovery Touch (You must be able to boot into Android):
  1. Install the 4EXT Recovery Updater while in Android (ie. before flashing this ROM)
  2. Start the 4EXT Recovery app and select "Online install | upgrade"
  3. Follow the normal prompts
  4. Click "Yes" to "connect to 4ext.net to get new data"
  5. When it detects EVO 3D GSM, press "Yes"
  6. Select the top version and acknowledge the prompts and click the "Install" button
  7. The recovery should now download and flash
  8. Once flashed, click "Yes" when asked if your device is S-ON
  9. Click Yes to set the timezone and you're all set to flash the ROM
  10. Reboot into Recovery and flash the ROM

Ensuring 4EXT SmartFlash is enabled:
  1. Boot into 4EXT Recovery 1.0.0.5 RC1 or newer
  2. Select "Tools"
  3. Scroll to the bottom. If it says "enable 4EXT SmartFlash", select it. Otherwise, it's already enabled.
If you have already flashed the ROM and it won't boot, you can perform the 4EXT Recovery method by either restoring your previous ROM from nandroid backup or flash a ROM you have already confirmed to be working. You should now be able to install the 4EXT Recovery using the steps above.

Otherwise, you'll need to flash the kernel manually. To do this, you need to install the fastboot drivers using the "Installing Fastboot and ADB" instructions below and run a command from your computer. These instructions are designed for Windows:

Flashing the kernel using fastboot:
  1. Reboot your phone into "fastboot" mode using the "Booting into Fastboot Mode" instructions
  2. Connect the phone to the computer using the USB cable
  3. Download this kernel to a folder on your computer (eg: c:\boot.img)
  4. Flash the kernel using the command: "fastboot flash boot c:\boot.img"
  5. Reboot your phone with the command "fastboot reboot"

Installing Fastboot and ADB
  1. Download and extract the Fastboot and ADB tools to a folder of your choice
  2. Reboot your phone into "fastboot" mode using the "Booting into Fastboot Mode" instructions
  3. Connect the phone to the computer using the USB cable
  4. Open a Command Prompt and switch to the folder where the fastboot and adb tools are installed (eg. "cd c:\fastboot")
  5. Type "fastboot devices" - it should display something like "HTXXXXXXXXX fastboot"
  6. If it doesn't, you'll need to download and install these fastboot drivers. Once installed, disconnect and reconnect your phone to the computer
  7. The drivers should now be installed.

Booting into Fastboot Mode:

There are several ways to reboot into bootloader mode:
  1. From rooted Android, install the application Quick Boot to easily reboot into Bootloader
  2. In the Recovery, there is usually an option to reboot to bootloader mode. 4EXT has this option under the "Power" menu option
  3. From Android or Recovery, you can reboot into bootloader using "adb reboot bootloader"
  4. By using the "Power" and "Volume Down" button combinations. More info here.
Once you're in bootloader mode, select "Fastboot" with the Volume Up/Down and Power to select.

Upgrading the firmware/radio (S-OFF users only):

WARNING: Flashing the new firmware will wipe your data (your apps and settings).

To preserve your data, you should perform a nandroid backup of data using Recovery (or full) before flashing the firmware and restore your data afterwards.

To backup your data using 4EXT Recovery:
  1. Boot into recovery
  2. Select "Backup | Restore"
  3. Select "Advanced Backup"
  4. Select "Data" (the process takes a few minutes)

To restore your data using 4EXT Recovery:
  1. Boot into recovery
  2. Select "Backup | Restore"
  3. Select "Advanced Restore"
  4. Select "Data"
  5. Select "Restore from Advanced Backup"
  6. Select your backup (usually the last one)

Upgrading the firmware:
  1. Copy the new firmware file (PG86IMG.ZIP from the Downloads section in post #1) to the root of your SD card (eg. /sdcard/PG86IMG.ZIP)
  2. Reboot into Bootloader mode using the "Booting into Fastboot mode" instructions above
  3. Your SD card will be scanned for the update
  4. When prompted, select "Yes" to update using Volume Up
  5. Once the process completes, reboot the phone
  6. If wanting to boot into recovery, remove the SD card from your phone, mount it on your computer and delete PG86IMG.ZIP from the card

Smooth, very responsive touchscreen, everything good ics themed except for ONE.thing:
If i choose something (my favourite forum in tapatalk or the colour of a toogle in aokp statusbar if its enabled e.g.) the forum is marked green. This should also be blue like the blue from the aopk statusbar dude to get the full ics feeling

Good question, and I don't have the answer. However, it's safe to update.

Sweet install. So far a pretty wicked ics. The quick menu is missing the "rotate on/off" button.
