Multitasking is a central component of the Android experience. You can open up an application, go open up five more, and go back to the first application right where you left it. Unfortunately, this process doesn’t always work the way you want or need it to. Sometimes it requires a little coercion from an outside source. This is exactly what it takes for HTC EVO 4G LTE owners.
XDA Senior Member Cloaker posted a thread on XDA linking users to an application called mcTweaker Root. After testing the application and some of its settings, Cloaker was able to get multitasking on the EVO LTE working as it should be. As explained:

You have to grant it root permission, go to memory, hit cynic killer, select On.

Every now and then, a mod so unique pops up that it bears closer examination. For HTC EVO 4G LTE owners, a mod such as this has appeared. When booted into a Sense ROM and connected to a PC, one will notice that the device mounts as two drives. One is the internal storage, and the other is a CD-ROM. Yes, a CD-ROM. Naturally, upon discovering this, the first step is to see if it can be used for something else. As it turns out, it can be.
XDA Recognized Contributor closeone has discovered that there is a file on the EVO LTE called PCTOOL.ISO, which is what causes the EVO LTE to show up as a CD-ROM when it’s plugged into a PC. Closeone explains why it is there and what can be done about it:

Not too long ago, we brought you news that allowed HTC EVO 4G LTE users to customize their bootloaders. The process was pretty cool, allowing users to make their bootloader look however they want—including making it look unhacked. After the initial project was released, users clamored for this to be made available to more devices. The requests were heard and responded to. Now, the plugin has been made available to make the bootloader customizer for a number of HTC devices.
The process for a developer to port this is not hard. XDA Recognized Contributor regaw_leinad, who developed the application and plugin, takes a time out from the stags (yes, that’s really him) to explain how:

When an OTA update is released for a device, rooted users and are running custom ROMs often have to wait a little longer to get the update. This is because developerss have to re-base the ROM, bringing it up to date with the most current firmware, and re-applying any tweaks, mods, or themes.
This is pretty standard, as anything from kernels to just a single mod might have to be reworked in order to make it compatible with the newest firmware. HTC EVO 4G LTE owners recently saw a firmware update, and now most tweaks have similarly been updated. XDA Senior Member O.M.J. has created a mod pack specifically designed to work with the 1.22 update, and quite a few things were updated, including:

Recently, we brought you news of Paranoid Android being ported to the Sony Xperia Play. Well, we are happy to report that the list of ported devices is growing fast. For the uninitiated, Paranoid Android is a hybrid ROM that allows users to scale and project every app, every widget, even system components individually. As described in the Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean port by XDA Forum Member molesarecoming:

To be honest, this is not tablet mode at all, it has nothing to do with silly build.prop hacks. This is the first and only Android rom to feature true Hybrid mode. This rom lets you scale and project every app, every widget, even systemcomponents individually. Remember, android is modular, everything is a

Just about three months ago, we brought you news that the Team Win Recovery Project had received a massive update to version 2.1. April’s release largely heralded the start of a new age in recoveries—where one would no longer have to deal with cumbersome menus, instead interacting with a very user-friendly GUI.
It wasn’t simply about the GUI either. In addition to bringing an unrivaled level of UI polish, TWRP 2.1 offered users many advanced features such as update.zip queuing, a basic file manager, and dual storage support for Nandroid backups. Additionally, TWRP added support for the open source scripting engine OpenRecoveryScript, which works in conjunction with the pr. . . READ ON »

Overclocking a device can have a lot of uses. It can help eliminate the last few traces of UI lag, it can make games run faster, and it’s always fun to point out that a dual core running 1.8GHz is faster than most desktop computers were 10 years ago. Despite the setbacks, users generally enjoy being able to overclock their phones. For the AT&T/Rogers HTC One X/XL and the HTC EVO 4G LTE, overclocking is now available.
Originally brought to the EVO 3D by XDA Elite Recognized Developer coolbho3000, the kernel modules were brought to the AT&T/Rogers One series devices by coolbho3000 as well. The EVO LTE kernels modules were ported from the AT&T One to the EVO 4G LTE by XDA Senior Member Art2Fly.

Some time ago, we brought you news of JoupunutBear S-Off on HTC devices. As newer devices are released, one always wonders if previous tools will be updated to add support. HTC EVO 4G LTE users can relax now, as Unlimited.IO now has a tool for you.
The EVO LTE now has LazyPanda, which is Unlimited.IO’s second release. Posted to XDA by XDA Recognized Developer Fuses, users are linked to the Juopunutbear / LazyPanda website where they can download the tools and view the instructions. Even though HTCDev Unlock gives users permission to flash a variety of development work, S-Off is still quite important.
The process is surprisingly simple for the end user. Most current S-Off methods require Test Point wire to. . . READ ON »
