Use volume buttons to change songs on your rooted HTC EVO 4G, even when screen is off
So let's say that you're out running and all 40GB of your music is on your HTC EVO 4G thanks to Google Music. Things are going well until a song comes on that you can't run/workout to. You definitely want to get to the next song as soon as possible.
Wouldn't it be great if you could change songs without even turning your screen on, regardless of whether you were using HTC Music, Google Music, Pandora, or any other major music app?
That's where tommmytomatoe comes in. The recognized dev has just come out with a mod that should work on rooted HTC EVO 4Gs running any deodexed 4.53/4.54-based stock ROMs (e.g., The EVO Classic, Swagged Out Stock, Smooth N Sexy, and others).
Once you download and flash this flashable .zip, you should be able to go to the next track or restart the current song/go to the previous track simply by holding the volume up or down button, respectively.
This will also add the 4-in-1 reboot mod, which is a nice little bonus.
As always, be sure to make a Nandroid backup in case this doesn't work and you need to revert to your pre-flashed .zip state.
Good luck and enjoy![xda-developers]
