Guys, I have a question. My mother has two EVOs. One is activated at a time and the other is my rotating backup phone. The micro-USB connectors keep failing so she can't charge. I have to rip them apart and repair them constantly. It's easy and saves having to buy new phones. I get on Sprint.com and do ESN swaps back and forth with no problem.

When I have to switch, I do a nandroid backup of this ROM from Revolutionary CWM, and then restore it on the other phone. Both have the same firmware, radio, ROM, etc. But when I restore the ROM from nandroid, it can't activation or all I get is Data Call Failure.

How can I make this work?

    • Some apps file names have been changed to work with the debloater app
    • Some apps from data got moved into /system/app/ for the same reason as above (and to save more room on data)

    Known Bugs:
    • Long pressing on tabs to remove them will not work.
      I had issues keeping the bounce overscroll and the tabs working together so i decided that it is an "OK" bug to have since most of us never use the long press on tabs anyways and might like the bounce overscroll better.
    • As far as i can tell any other bug is really minor... but ill add to the list as time goes on
    • If its grayed out... its not a bug...
