Looking for a stable ROM for your HTC EVO 4G? Want Google Talk with voice and video? Then Evo Deck is the ROM for you!

I have been a fan of Cyanogen’s work for a while now. I used CyanogenMod on my Eris, on my Droid, and, initially, on my EVO. It is just so smooth and clean. Once I put all my LauncherPro extras on my AOSP ROM, then I am good to go. But up until about a month ago, there was no ROM (besides leaks or ROMs made for other phones) that gave you the nice features of Gingerbread (cool copy/paste, glowing overflow – you know, the subtle/cool things that make your phone “Gingerbread”). I was always frustrated that I needed to have several launchers on my phone since CM ships with ADW, which I do not use. There were also little things that were starting to bug me (CM extras here and there). I wanted a “clean” Gingerbread ROM.

Enter Evo Deck.

This ROM gives you all the goods of CM7: AOSP Gingerbread 2.3.4, 4G, working MMS, Netflix, Theme Chooser, HDMI mirroring, the AOSP email app, and so on. If you are an CM fan, the feature you liked from that ROM is there. Also, with the help of a flashable .zip, you can enable the new Google Talk with video on your EVO.

I’m not going to lie. I am never a faithful ROM user. I cheat on Deck all the time with all of these new fancy Sense ROMs popping up here and there. Unfortunately, due to stability and battery life (thanks to Tiamat’s SBC kernel) I always come back to Deck.

Oh yeah, can I say something about the developer? Kushdeck has put out 26 versions of this “Pre-Stable” release. Talk about dedication!

If you are looking for a stable Gingerbread ROM where everything works (especially 4G, the new Talk, and Netflix), then do yourself a favor and hit the link below.
