Fresh Jelly Bean Ports Arrive on the HTC EVO 3D

Users of the HTC EVO 3D have been rather lucky lately. Despite HTC withholding the Ice Cream Sandwich update and kernel source code until the very last second (and indeed until the next iteration of Android, 4.1 ‘Jelly Bean’, began landing on other devices) clever developers and a dedicated community of ROM cooks have managed to keep the seemingly abandoned device on the bleeding edge. Those of you who have held on to this 4.3 inch, glasses-free 3D, dual-core device, even as HTC shifted it’s attention to the new EVO 4G LTE and away from its dedicated EVO 3D community, can now give themselves a pat on the back. A plethora of Jelly Bean ports are arriving on the handset, even with the blatant lack of OEM support. Some of the more notables include:

As always, you can find information and threads about these and other great ROMs in our HTC EVO 3D forums. Don’t forget to Nandroid backup your entire handset before flashing anything. Also, be sure to thank the devs who brought these builds, long after the manufacturer deemed the device worthy of attention. If you haven’t tried Jelly Bean on your EVO 3D, now is the time. So pick your preferred build, and flash away!

Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
