      I tried Avi ROM but didnt like it, sorta buggy, try mikfroyo.

      • Orlando says:

        Ok trying the mikfroyo this weekend… what do you recommend the best ROM to have on the evo? I’m sorta still new in trying all the ROMs. I’m a dude that like gadgets as well as speed. The one thing I cant stand is lagging apps and lagging op systems. I guess I’m looking for the best. But I have been following Max for sometime now and trying to keep in touch. By the way Max Thanks for the email. Will Keep up with you as much as possible on twitter (MwaV300). Thanks

    Got 4g up and running by turnoing on nation wide data roaming with other providers. Sprint owns Clearwire and the wimax probably needed the ok to go looking for other networks than sprint. Check your wimax settings.

    Hi, just rooted and installed cyanogen about two days ago and noticed that my battery life is draining super fast. been trying to find is there is an app that is draining it but all looks well on the “cell usage” part on setting also tried killing running processes but i have hardly any apps installed to kill.
    Anyone with any ideas

      Try using JuiceDefender. So far it’s working wonders with my EVO. Within 5 hours, battery has been improved almost 2x.
