CleverNameHere Rom Release 1

This rom is discontinued as I have moved on to the Nexus 7. God Bless, everyone!

This ROM is based off of the Evo View 4G's 2nd OTA (security update) and was created with DSIXDA's rom kitchen. Special thanks to pardonmyfreedom for figuring out the view's mount points.

Features
  • Rooted
  • Busybox
  • Deodexed
  • Zipaligned on boot
  • Ad Free Hosts file added
  • Bash shell & nano installed along with sysro/sysrw scripts
  • Added custom boot animation (found about 4th hand, will give credit when I can find original owner) and switched the shutdown animation to the stock HTC one
  • Hardware Accelerated UI
  • Dalvik heap increased
  • Filesystem Tweaks
  • SD card speed tweak
  • Juwe11's ram optimization script
  • New Market
  • Removed most of the bloatware (including teeter, which i'd forgotten before), and left blockbuster, qik, polaris office and sprint nav in data/app so that it can be easily removed if you prefer to do so
  • Disabled HTC update checking
  • baked in facebook, google+, es file explorer, Titanium Backup & Mybackup Root, Onlive Viewer, Dolphin Browser HD
  • Skype for chat included, along with enabling bluetooth headsets

Features in optional theming zip (coming soon, need to rebase off of OTA2)
  • Crysis Battery Mod
  • running test icon set
  • Changed off green (HTC Color) into actually green on loading circle and download bar
  • Green Overscroll
Please help me test this rom for a couple of days while I'm continuing to add features as well as offer suggestions for improvements. I already have a few in mind as well, just need to continue working through them. I'm also looking for anyone who has theming experience since I'm an IT guy and not a graphics designer ;-)

Pre-Installation Instructions

Make sure your HTC Evo View 4G is S-off and has a recovery installed, the best way to do that is to follow this guide by Globatron. You also need to have an SD Card in your view in order to be able to flash things through Clockwork Mod.

Installation Instructions

The betas of this ROM will wipe data, so I recommend backing up important information in MyBackup Root and Titanium Backup. The Full Releases (RLS 1, RLS 2, etc.) and Release Candidates (RC1, Etc.) will not wipe data, but if you're coming from stock or just want to make sure your devices is clean, do a factory reset from within clockworkmod recovery between steps 3 and 4 of the guide below.
  1. Copy the Rom .zip file to the base of your SD Card, not the internal storage of your View
  2. Boot into your tablet's bootloader by holding volume down & power while unit is powered off
  3. select recovery by using the volume arrows and hit power to select
  4. you should now be looking at a black screen with blue text, if not make sure you followed the S-off guide. using the volume keys to navigate and power button to select, select install zip from sd card using power
  5. select choose zip from sdcard
  6. select the clevernamehere .zip file on your sdcard
  7. navigate down to the option that says 'Yes - Install clevernamehere*.zip' where * is the name of the version of the rom (eg. beta1)
  8. Rom will now install and run it's course. The script will be more verbose then it is now by the final version
  9. select the +++++Go Back+++++ option
  10. now select reboot system now and the view will reboot. this will take a while, just like it did when you took it out of the box.
  11. Rom is now installed and working! let me know if you find any bugs or have feature requests.

Removing all user data before installing a new rom (Factory Data Reset)
  1. Boot into your tablet's bootloader by holding volume down & power while unit is powered off
  2. select recovery by using the volume arrows and hit power to select
  3. you should now be looking at a black screen with blue text, if not make sure you followed the S-off guide. using the volume keys to navigate and power button to select, select wipe data/factory reset.
  4. navigate down to the option that says 'Yes -- delete all user data' and select it. This will wipe ALL of your data and the data will be unrecoverable after this unless you have backed it up using Titanium Backup and Mybackup Root.
  5. device will now wipe itself and take you back to the main clockworkmod menu. continue on from step 4 of the above guide to flash the rom if you already have the .zip on your device.

Uninstallation Instructions (going back to stock)

  1. Download the shipped rom RUU from here. This was posted by Football on the Flyer Shipped ROMs list here
  2. with your tablet powered on, plugged into your computer via USB, run the RUU. It will take over after you confirm you want to 'update' and format you back to almost completely stock (I was still s-off but I had lost root of course)
  3. go ahead and update your tablet back to the latest OTA (the first OTA) using software update on your tablet.
  4. now go to this thread by attn1 about getting clockworkmod back as well as root. don't forget the view is named the express and DO NOT download anything from this link that has flyer in the name
  5. you are now ready to flash another rom or reflash mine :D

so far so good
a few questions though
  1. Can you turn 4g service on automatically
  2. is this going to be a sense or senseless rom or both?
  3. any plans on removing the default sprint crap bundled with the phone?

rom name recommendation ContraView Rom

Removing sense is always a large undertaking. I'll tackle that at a later time, so sense for now. Beta 2 is going to remove as much as possible and put it into a zip for the few users who might actually want it. I'll look into having 4g autostart as an option. Thanks for the name suggestion.

Since there are currently only 2 roms specific to the View I thought I would give yours a try as well as the XPRS rom. I really dig that boot screen. So far everything seems to be smooth without any issues. I am running it with the ADW Ex launcher and all of my primary apps work well including netflix..

Beta 2 is now uploaded. I have been working on theming and it is quite a bit harder on sense based roms than it is on touchwiz. I'll also upload the removed apks as a zip file tomorrow.
If you need some help let me know, im almost done skinning all of i00 rom. Im not sure if its the same for the View but fusion.apk and rosie.apk wont compile with m10 editor, just fyi.

I'd actually love some help skinning once I hit feature complete right before the RC. I'm headed there pretty quick, just have a few tweaks that i'd like to get implemented first

Why the hate for stock?

Do you have a completely stock updated rooted ver? What base are you using?

Edit: This was not meant to as disrespect to you. Thanks for all the hard work. The talented devs are the only reason we have this community today.

ContraDude thanks for all the hard work on this rom as its really the only rom we have on the view that is currently being worked on, once they have the kernel source released I know some devs who are willing to make some kernels for our tab. However, one request that I have which you may be able to figure out, as I could not, is how to get the android market to install apps it says arent compatible. I originally thought that changing the fingerprint would fix the issue however I have changed the fingerprint to several different devices and currently have the fingerprint showing the tab as an EVO 3d to the android market. Unfortunately this still doesnt get apps like facebook, go sms, or other apps to show up. I have attached a screenshot that shows my tab showing up as an evo3d. Also I believe that it may have something to do with other lines in the build.prop that show that the device is not a phone, not sure where those are. However I did completely take out an reference of the model number, product, and brand to mirror those from the build.prop of my evo 3d, so I changed more than just the fingerprint and it still doesn't work.

No one is willing to do their own dirty work anymore. What happened to if you don't want it uninstall it now that you have root. Do you have a completely stock rooted updated ver? I cannot find a 2.3.4 stock rooted rom for my wife's view.I saw you removed teeter which my kids love, kept in blockbuster, polaris, and telenav(no good without premium gps fee) which I don't use. I cannot take any Ota's without causing problems so I am still 2.3.3. But every rom maker out there is all about remove this and remove that. I for one have no problem removing stuff I don't use, and on the other hand do use some of the bloat apps everyone is so "remove happy" over. Sorry for the rant but it used to be the user removed what they didn't want. I thought that is what root was for. Thanks for your time.

Thanks for being a sterling example of everything that's wrong with XDA. You complain that people don't do their own work, then complain when you have to do your own work?

If you wanted a rooted stock rom, why are your looking at custom rom's? Run the s-off tool then flash the zip that gives you root. At that point you have a rooted stock rom.

Thanks for being an example of the majority of XDA users, quick to flame and not help. Yes the rant could have been left out but that was my opinion on removing apps. No one can say what the next guy will or will not use, just pointing out somewhere it was agreed that stock apps were bad. I learned with the 3d that some bloat apps are system and will not install correctly with the normal installation of apk's(reader being one of them). I can put these back into system myself as I have done it many times already. No disrespect was aimed at anybody but it seems you are ready to fire back at a moments notice.

If you wanted a rooted stock rom, why are your looking at custom rom's? Run the s-off tool then flash the zip that gives you root. At that point you have a rooted stock rom.

Custom roms can still be custom without removing stuff. It's the added tweaks that make them custom. And I am currently Stock rooted.
