Ladies and gentlemen I am glad to bring you the first ever gingerbread beta of Evervolv for the Evo 4G! First thing I would like to say is that this rom would not be possible without the CyanogenMod team. I am merely here to bring you how I like my phone setup and give you more options over a base build of the gingerbread genre. My qualifications are inferior to what is required on some of the fixes that were made. Thus I rely on the CyanogenMod Team for their expertise in these fields.

With this being said I'd like to introduce the Evervolv team (the guys who make this rom happen).

  • Preludedrew (developer, Evo, Droid Incredible, Hero CDMA, Evo Shift 4g, N1)
  • mwielgosz (HTC Aria, HTC Evo 4G, HTC Evo 3D maintainer; Java development)
  • Cocide (linux, overall scripting, Evo support)
  • Milesje (java/android & overall, Evo support)
  • Adhvanit (Overall graphics & theme design, Droid Incredible support)
  • Deck (Evo & MT4G)
  • TypoKnig (file mirror)
  • RyteSyde (wallpapers & graphics)
  • Exxodium (wiki/wallpapers, Evo Shift 4g support)

This is where i would like to thank all of the donaters to the Evervolv project. Any and all donations are not used for personal use. I have and will only use them for further development. (i.e. Droid incredible, Evo Shift 4G, java and android books). I will be compiling this list and updating it constantly. If you do decide to donate for the furthering of the evervolv project, please leave me your xda ID in the message so I can give you recognition on here.

Man, nobody has commented yet. Need to devirginize this thread!

Downloading right now... worried that the CM base will carry the phone wakelock contagion, but my temptation to try another AOSP rom overshadows it. :)

Edit: Gave it a try, quick review:

- Seems quicker than most AOSP roms I've tried
- Interesting theme and take on notification bar
- Wifi connects VERY quickly
- All normal stuff seems to work fine

- Notification bar toggles don't work ... at all
- Themer doesn't affect signal bars or battery
- GAPPS does not include Voice Search

I realize its in beta, so hopefully the bugs will be tackled by stable release, but overall pretty good. I'd definitely take it over CM7 (which, despite its status as a pioneer, is moving farther and farther from stability in exchange for adding new features ... Ubuntu-esque?), and while I'm not huge on the style of the font/icons, I can see how a lot of people would dig the cool factor. That said, there are other AOSP roms that, at this stage, are more stable and fully featured.

I'm heading back to OMFGB, but I shall keep tabs on future development. Best of luck!
Thanks for the edit post I was just about to flash but my hold off for a day but this is still looking cool I really hope they don't stop dev on this like most evo ROMs these days I plan on keeping my evo for a while longer.
