Runnymede Port For The EVO 4G

Looks like a good month to have an EVO 4G. Yesterday, we posted an article regarding a port of the latest Sense 3.5 rom to the Desire HD and the Desire S, which came from the unreleased HTC Runnymede. After having worked on the original build from XDA Recognized Developer capychimp, XDA Recognized Developer eVoKINGS has successfully ported this new build to the HTC EVO 4G. This build is by far a final one, but so far it seems that it comes loaded with a “real” version of Sense 3.5 and it also comes loaded with Android 2.3.5 as a rom base. Much like it was the case for the Bliss port that we spoke about last week, the current project (as it is less than 24 hours old), still has a lot of broken options such as wifi, inability to mount the SD card, broken wallpaper previews, no cameras, and last but not least rather low storage space right after flashing (some people have reported about 40 MB left without installing a single app). On top of that, if you were looking forward to the Quick Launcher widget from the Bliss build, it seems that you will not be getting that either or at least not until someone brings it into this build (currently being worked on).

If you don’t mind the aforementioned bugs and would like to test this, please help out the EVO community and leave good feedback on bugs, so that the devs working on this will have a better shot at making this fully usable.

This rom is based on Runnymede WWE ruu
0.82.401.1 android 2.3.5

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
