Closer to Perfection – One S Port for EVO 3D Gets Major Update

You may recall that not too long ago, we wrote an article about the first ever port of the HTC Endeavor (One S) for the EVO 3D, brought to you courtesy of XDA Recognized Developer TMartin. Well, as it turns out due to some time constraints on his end, the dev could not update the ROM as much as needed and thus, it never really took off from the pre-alpha state. That was until now because thanks to the generous donation of an EVO 3D, XDA Recognized Developer newtoroot has been brought into the game to help TMartin with the port.

In case you are not familiar, the HTC One S is one of the latest devices released by HTC, a variant of the One X, which comes loaded with ICS 4.0.3 as well as the all new Sense 4.0 interface. The appeal of this project is really a two-fold ambition: A. Sense 4 will not be coming to the EVO 3D anytime soon (the official update to ICS is rumored to come with Sense 3.6); and B. because porting stuff is fun and some people claim that it cannot be done. All in all, we do it simply to break limits.

In any case, newtoroot just released a brand new ROM in beta stage taking on TMartin’s work. The dev has been able to get the ROM working in such a way that it literally jumped from Pre-Alpha to Beta in a matter of days. Some of the things he fixed were:

  • Wifi
  • Data
  • MMS / SMS
  • GPS
  • Phone
  • Speed and stability
  • more…

Having said that, this ROM is still in beta and as such, many could consider it a non daily driver. The ROM has no Bluetooth or working cameras. And on top of that, transition animations must be turned off since the kernel being used right now does not play well with these animations, and causes continuous freezing of the screen. Last thing are actually the device’s sensors, which seem to be somewhat laggy, particularly the accelerometer. The latter actually causes some freezes due to the device trying to go to the mode being requested (landscape or portrait). Due to HTC still not having released the new ICS kernel for the EVO 3D, the correct drivers for the device are not yet available, but are being worked on. So, there is hope that we will see a more complete ROM very soon.

Please leave any thoughts or comments on the thread and if you happen to come across a bug that is not reported, please leave the feedback clearly in the thread so that it can be reviewed by the dev.

Ok this is something i threw together for you guys to hold you off while tmartin and myself work on a really solid rom… I want to say Thanks to tmartin and the user who donated the device i cant remember his name at the moment but ill add him in the OP later… without them this would not be possible for you guys so show them some love….

You can find more information in the original thread.

Android M Code Name: Macadamia Nut Cookie

While the official name for the latest iteration of Android has yet to be revealed, the code name used internally by Google has been seen to be Macadamia Nut Cookie (MNC). This will almost certainly not be the final name for the release with rumors so far leaning towards milkshake, much like Key Lime Pie became Kit Kat and Lemon Meringue Pie became Lollipop. The acronym MNC has now also started to appear in several locations in AOSP, just look out...
