Fresh Evo ROM Review for HTC Evo 4G!

Fresh Evo ROM is another ROM (sorta like Evo Zone) based off the leaked Gingerbread HTC Evo 4G ROM. It’s really plain stock ROM but unlike Evo Zone, doesn’t come with Sprint apps (bloatware). If you don’t need all the Sprint apps but you like Evo Zone, I would probably get this Fresh Evo ROM.

The Fresh Evo ROM also lets you check for latest ROM updates, which is a small feature but neat for upgrading your ROM on the go later. I might stick with this ROM for a day or two since it comes with everything I need, 4G and camera working, plus no Sprint apps.

MIUI ROM for HTC Evo 4G Review!

MIUI ROM is one of the other big ROMs out there like CyanogenMod 7, they’ve got a whole bunch of ROMs for different Android smartphone including the HTC Evo 4G.

How to Install Evo Zone ROM Gingerbread Android 2.3.3 on your HTC Evo 4G!

Recently, someone told me they installed the latest CyanogenMod 7 ROM for Evo 4G and wanted to install Sprint apps (like Sprint TV) back onto their phone.  Well, I tried it this morning and CM7 doesn’t support Sprint apps because Sprint apps use Sense UI and CM7 doesn’t have that.

Anyways, to make the story short, I found another great Gingerbread ROM, the Evo Zone ROM, which comes with Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread and Sprint apps loaded.  Now, some of you might not like the Sprint apps so I will have some instructions on how to remove some of the apps you

MikFroyo ROM version 4.4 Review!

Remember I was using MikFroyo ROM version 3.0 couple months back? Well, after trying out various different ROMs like the Kings ROM and CM WiMax Alpha, I decided to revert back to MikFroyo ROM, except now there’s a better version.
