Hello,

can't wait to test this new rom but the download link seems to be wrong for me ... I've checked on you're androidfilehost account and download this from toady in replacement, is that good ? http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23159073880936363

That seems to be a 4.3 Evervolv build. Am I missing something?

I don't think so..omnirom of course is always android and the appearence is similar in every versions..but I think that is a different concept on a programmative side. Finally a real android open-source? read from the link in the first post to know better how does this project consists in ;) (if you really downloaded en evervolv rom, try the link right above my post, it works)


Domenico you are fantastic. Please never leave our evo 3D!!!! Thank's to you we can have the latest versions of wonderful projects like omnirom in a very short time after they are announced. Simply the best!

Well the evervolv default wallpaper and the evervolv name all across "About phone" led me to that bold conclusion. I'll try the new link now

Omnirom for now lacks most customization,it's still a big WIP,and I used evervolv device trees(with my edits,tho)
don't be surprised if it says ev all over the place

Well,my evo is gone,and I'm gonna buy a nexus 5(please google hurry up!)
Since hopefully working on the n5 will be boring and not fun as its on the evo I might port 4.4 or whatever comes next

Yeah even me was interested in nexus 5, even if today didn't come out anything from google..but max in a couple of week will be out for sure, let's see :fingers-crossed: of course working on a device AOSP listed is easier (fully working rom, a recent kernel available, bootloaders factory unlocked without nonsense HTC restrictions)..but working on evo 3D gives more satisfaction LoL So now you are developing in a "blind way", I mean without a phisical device..and you roms boot!! I am impressed :cool: Good luck for the 4.4 developing , hope to see in future :D

Rom still isn't bugless,don't send me PMs with bugs,I already know what is broken
Anyways
Little(quite big tho) experiment
Take a read at http://www.linux.org/threads/flash-friendly-file-system-f2fs.4477/
This file system by default is used on motorola moto x and together with @namenlos we found that it delivers better performance also on our little evo.
As (I hope) most of you know,formatting to a different file system requires a set of utils,thus a different recovery and the loss of all of your data.
I didn't find any good reason to make all of you erase all your data,flash a different recovery and running manually format lines,so I came with a different flashing method..
It is more complex than usual and might not work fine(remember,no device,so no testing)
Download https://www.dropbox.com/s/utdclidhbi4yokp/first.zip and https://www.dropbox.com/s/dkj9n7jb8u1i2vp/second.zip and http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23159073880937120 and place 'em on your SD card
tl:dr:
Flash first.zip,once it ends reboot to recovery,wait for it to reboot,boot again to recovery and flash f2fs.zip

Here's a little insight

First zip does the following things:
Make a backup of your /data(make sure you have 1.2 GB free on your SD)
Make a backup of your recovery
Flash a custom TWRP made to work with F2FS
And adds a custom openrecoveryscript to tell the special recovery to flash second.zip(ensure you have it in root of your sd)
Asks you to reboot to recovery(please do it)
Once you reboot,custom TWRP starts,reads the script that tells it to flash second.zip
Second zip does the following:
Format as F2FS /data and /cache
Restore your data
Restore your recovery
Reboot(you should then pull the battery and reboot to recovery)
From your recovery,flash "f2fs.zip" which is the rom itself,reboot and enjoy

NOTE:
Kernel is not evervolv,it's a hybrid between a old johnnyslt with tweaks,new EV and my various changes

Oh yes fantastic file system on the moto x huge gains in performance for a dual core processor, battery performance is unbelievable, 5 hours screen time and you'll still have power left over, loving mine:D

I am willing to test it but one thing prevents me from doing that (apart from a lack of free time). How do I get back to the standard FS? do I just restore the backup i would create in the recovery?

To go back to the old Rom you might have to restore the recovery first. Just go into fastboot usb mode and flash the official recovery. Then you can restore your backup comfortably in TWRP for sure. IIRC it should also work on the modified TWRP, at least when I tested it.

    Hey man, sorry to break in on a different device's thread, but I'm trying to build OmniROM 4.4 for my N8013 and I got it building but can't flash, I get the same set_metadata_recursive issue. Can you describe what the problem is and how I might update my recovery to fix it? Or will this just require a completely new version of TWRP? I know OmniROM builds TWRP in tree now but my recovery is about a megabyte smaller than the latest one on the TWRP site so I'm afraid to actually flash it. Or would that be reasonable/likely to work? Thanks!
    Recovery size might be due to different boardconfig flags,anyways,I generally ask Dees_Troy on #twrp to build recoveries,just give him the modified kernel,he has always the correct device tree

    Well,it has been a long and nice journey to work on evo 3d but sadly everything has an end..
    I hope to see some of you in the nexus 5 forum
    I might try to get 4.4 booting on shooteru before leaving
