This is Deck's ReLoaded. For a background on this project please see this thread. Deck's ReLoaded is based off of Kushdeck's 1.3d GB AOSP ROM, the undeniably best GB AOSP rom to ever grace our EVO's.

With the combined efforts of LOTK, Ropodope, and myself, we have taken what is widely known as the best GB AOSP rom and made it better, faster, stronger, and by god sexier too! This aint your average GB rom, prepare to be blown away by raw speed, and unmatched stability. With Deck's ReLoaded we have taken the exceptional and made it extraordinary!

An excert from Paul E. King's review on Good and Evo
"What you notice most about this is it's smooth. You tap an app, it's open. You go from screen to screen, there is no lag noticeable. It feels almost like it's outperforming my EVO 3D..."
You can read the whole review here- Good and Evo

was kind enough to include logcats.

4G icon does not "color in" to reflect actual signal.

Themed Recovery, splash screens, and coming soon, the Shwag Bag

LOTK, Ropodope, and myself recommend that for optimum wiping/flashing and overall best recovery performance you use SMELKUSMOD ReLoaded RA themed recovery. This is hands down the BEST recovery available for the EVO 4G. Options galore, including auto reboot for those time you restore a nand but want to take a nap, it's set it and forget it. To install: Rename to PC36IMG.zip, place on root of sd card, reboot bootloader, select "yes".
Click "Smelkusmod" above for download.

Deck'd Blues Mod undo for .44 RLS: http://db.tt/opyu3wSG
Flash from recovery

ATTENTION: We WILL not be entertaining questions regarding the use of or "perceived" user issues relating to dark tremors a2sd. With the release of Philo 500 there are NO rom issues relating the its' use. it works fantastic! both the stable and beta 04 version of a2sd work incredibly well and has been tested extensively and by other users. Do NOT attempt to ask such questions in THIS ROM thread. Take IT and ALL other NON ROM related issues to the Deck's Reloaded Chat Room in General. You have been warned.

For all questions related to DTA2SD refer to these guides

What you need to know about Apps2sd vs Dark Tremors a2SD

The 10 Step guide: How to properly setup Dark Tremor's A2SD

If you need an a2sd zip file for flashing you can choose the one you want here:
