An in-depth look at Synergy RLS1 with GodMode on the HTC EVO 4G


It's been about two months since G&E last looked at Synergy ROM for the HTC EVO 4G. Since then, the ROM has come out of the invite-only beta and put out two release candidates. The most recent update included GodMode. And today, Synergy RLS1 was released. 

Synergy's goal is simple: "Bring together an all-star team of some of Android's most talented ROM developers and deliver arguably the best base Android rom experience ever." But what is GodMode? According to one of Synergy's developers, "in a nutshell we are setting up a yaffs2+ext2 partition." This drastically improves the I/O performance of the EVO 4G, resulting in some impressive benchmark scores. 

To see the ROM in action, check out my video review below. 

Be sure to check out Synergy RLS1 + GodMode (or without GodMode) for yourself.
