Swiping Notifications available for rooted HTC EVO 4G running 4.67-based ROM

Developer ca1ne is simply amazing.

If you use Sense 1.0 ROMs on your HTC EVO 4G and you haven't thanked this guy yet, then you definitely should. He brought the 4-in-1 Reboot Mod to the Gingerbread OTA update and later added it to the Advanced Power Menu. He was also the one who originally got Quick Settings and Recent Apps ported to Sense 1.0.

To see what he has brought the OG EVO world now, you're going to have to check out the video above. Yes, that's CyanogenMod 6.1. Yes, that's an old HTC phone. And, yes, that is "Hey There Delilah."

What you should really be taking away from this demo video is the ability to swipe notifications away.

This is actually really great. Think about a time when you had an app update, but you also had a missed call. You wanted to get rid of the notification for the app update, but you wanted to return the missed call later. Before this mod, you were forced to clear all of the notifications (or leave them there). But now thanks to ca1ne, you can swipe away notifications one at a time on Sense 1.0!

Unfortunately, since this is a new modification, it doesn't play well with old mods . . . yet! So, notification pulldown tweaks like Quick Settings and Recent Apps that don't normally come with Sense 1.0 will end up being removed. Fortunately, ca1ne  is working on incorporating Swiping Notification with Quick Settings, so you won't have to choose between the two forever.

If you are running a 4.67-based ROM (i.e., a ROM based on the latest OTA) on your OG EVO like EVO 4G Stock Nocturnal Edition or Red Line and don't mind losing your Quick Settings, be sure to check out Swiping Notifications at the link below.

    FYI, it may be unclear from the forum, but this is based on the actions already in CM7. So if you have CM7 flashed, you are already good to go. I really love this feature.

    Do take note that if you flash it over a ROM w/other notification pane mods then you may overwrite those, as alluded to by G&E above… So if you don’t wanna lose a theme, battery % tweak or w/e then take caution and make a backup before flashing; and/or just ask your ROM’s creator to bake it in.

    Also, there’s a version compatible w/Leedroid (search for it on XDA), which is another mod w/an UI front-end that lets you implement may of teh other mods being referenced to, on the fly w/o flashing any extra stuff after Leedroid. You can add and re-order Quick Settings, hide stuff like the GPS/alarm/clock, add a battery %, etc.

    Glad to see swipe coming to some android mods. Hopefully Google will adapt this at some point. With Web OS now open source maybe they can combine cards and swipes (the best of webOS) into android and we can have the best of both worlds. I miss a lot of the gestures from WebOS.
