    I just installed this rom on my wifes Evo 4G, and she loves it. It seems to work pretty well and she says it’s like having a new phone.

  2. Ianto says:

    I was sooooooo excited about this update… until I got into my car tonight. I discovered that something in this update doesn’t let the EVO 4G play nicely with Honda/Acura Handsfreelink. In fact, I had to pull over to the side of the road and turn my cell phone off because the car system kept repeating, “The system does not allow the phone to initiate Bluetooth pairing,” over, and over, and over, and over again. Went to my backup Sprint Lovers ROM and everything is fine again.

    Does my evo need to be rooted before I install this rom?

    • noah says:

      u can get to recovery if the phone is not rooted
      but u can go from the phone settings and then system update and then htc software update

  4. Nate says:

    Why would you do a recovery instead of flashing the ROM?

  5. Diego says:

    Just what I was looking for. You’re awesome I love this phone!!!!

    I attempted to install 4.53.651.1 on my rooted phone and during the process it rebooted, a triangle with an exclamation mark in it and an android to the side was on the screen. I had to remove the battery to restart my phone. what does this mean ? I discarded the install for now. again a reply is appreciated….

    • mcd says:

      same thing happened to me so I removed battery and when it started up said system update is available to install but I am holding off to find out if I should install or not. Any answers from anyone that has installed or attempted to install the update.

      • Orlando says:

        I am a experienced rooterr and will download this tonight and see how everything works. also if you guys have figured out everything before I get back to you, please respond to this and let me know, but I will flash this and get back to you asap.

    how do i get the deodexed zip?

  10. VinceHollywood says:

    So when I install this ROM I should have free hotspot??

    • Broxton says:

      If your phone is rooted, just go to the market and install “wireless tether for root users”.
      open the app and accept when asked in superuser. works great!

  11. Dmonklan says:

  12. Broxton says:

    I have HDMI mirroring and wifi tethering, what is the advantage of Installing the Rooted OTA 4.53.651.1 ROM on HTC Evo 4G?

  13. John says:

    can dark tremor a2sd or other a2sd app work with this?

  14. Isaac says:

    Hi, I’m a NOOB at this, but i tried following the directions on your video here and run into a few problems.

    1. I’m not sure where exactly to put this file “4.53.651.1_Rooted_Deodexed_Signed” I just dropped it onto my sdcard but the phone wouldn’t read it from recovery, I even tried zipping it into a zip folder and renamed the folder to “ClockworkMod Recovery” and still nothing.

    2. I did everything as shows in the video up until (1:44) and then my phone shows me on black screen two green circular arrows and one arrow in the middle pointing down on a phone, and right after it shows a phone with a red triangle with exclamation sign. and it freezes at this point.

    PLEASE HELP ME. here is some info about my HTC EVO 4G phone:
    Android version: 2.3.3
    Build & Software number: 4.24.651.1
