XDA Recognized Developer -viperboy- has been hard at work bringing some customized goodness to the HTC EVO 4G LTE community. There are two items I want to bring to your attention that have been posted on the XDA forums over the last few days.
viperROM eLiTE v1.2
This is the first custom rom available for the EVO LTE. -viperboy- states that “you can expect the best battery life, outstanding support, and a great place to ask your questions and contribute to the ROM!” The rom has too many mods and additions to list myself, but has Wifi Tether, Titanium Backup, Android Terminal Emulator, Root Browser, and Metamorph baked in to name a few. The XDA thread includes requirements and a how to for flashing the rom complete with downloads. To check out the full details on the custom rom magic check out the thread here.
Dual Core Mod
-viperboy- posted this mod for the EVO LTE on the 30th. He states, “here is a mod that should give you better performance by keeping cpu1 (the second CPU) online all the time. The system will handle how it scales. Some people on the EVO 3D felt that it gave them better battery life, some didn’t. Some thought the performance was much better, some didn’t.” He mentions the EVO 3D because the idea came from the same mod done for the EVO 3D. Several users on the forum noticed immediate performance enhancements with the mod although most were reporting no difference in benchmarks. Included in the post is a how to as well as a method to determine if the mod is working correctly.
So, if you’re lucky enough to be the proud owner of the HTC EVO 4G LTE, be sure to head on over to XDA to check out the handiwork of -viperboy- and crew. If you decide to flash the new rom or mod your new phone, let us know how it goes and what you think! Happy flashing!
