Carousel Animation for EVO 3D Finally Removed
Not every aspect of an OEM skin is a wanted feature. Sometimes features—especially pointless features—are just annoying and a waste of processor power. Perhaps one of the best examples of this is the carousel animation on the HTC EVO 3D. For those who don’t know, a user can swype across the screen and if they do it too fast or too far, the home screens will spin in a carousel motion for two full revolutions and then land on the same home screen it started on. Annoying, right?
EVO 3D users can finally get rid of what is one of the most pointless features of the OEM skin. XDA Senior Member ozkaya has released a mod that will remove the carousel animation and return the phone to its proper working condition. Unfortunately, the compatibility list for the mod is small, including InfectedROM for Sense 3.0 and Sense 3.5, along with the latest base of stock ROM. The list is sure to grow, however, as this is one of those mods that users have been clamoring for since release day. Presumably, it won’t be long until all the devs pick it up, and make it work with their ROMs.
Installing the mod is easy. Simply wipe cache and dalvik and flash over recovery. You can find all the download links and additional details in ozkaya’s thread. If your ROM isn’t supported, check back every couple of days, as more ROMs are sure to make the list sooner or later. And, as always, make a backup before applying the mod, just in case something goes awry.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
