Want to install a custom ROM on your rooted HTC Evo 4G LTE?
It’s pretty simple to do. First, you will need an unlocked bootloader and TWRP Recovery installed.
Step 1. Download the custom ROM you want to install, usually a “zip” file. Don’t unzip the file and copy the whole file over to your Evo 4G LTE. You can also download ROMs straight to your phone but I don’t really recommend it as downloads can get corrupt when downloading on your phone plus downloads really slow. If you can, try downloading on your computer then copy over to your phone.
In this example, I am installing freEVO LTE ROM, which has just one zip file. If there’s multiple zip files, copy all of them over to your phone.
Step 2. Once ROM zip files are on your phone, reboot into bootloader by holding down Volume Down and Power buttons together for 10 seconds. Let go of your Power button for 1 second and hold it down again.
Step 3. Choose “RECOVERY” and hit the Power button.
Step 4. Once in TWRP recovery, choose “Wipe”.
Step 5. Choose “Factory Reset”.
Step 6. Swipe to wipe, this will erase all your personal settings and apps so make a backup before doing this!
Step 7. Next, go back to main menu and choose “Install”.
Step 8. Browse your filesystem and find the ROM zip file you copied over earlier and install it. If there are multiple files, you need to install the main ROM file (the largest) then the rest by repeating Step 7 and 8.
Step 9. Once done installing ROM zip file(s), choose “Wipe cache/dalvik” and swipe.
Step 10. Reboot and you should find yourself with the new custom ROM running, enjoy!
