Unofficial port of CyanogenMod 10 makes its way to the HTC EVO 3D

Less than a month after the unveiling of Jelly Bean, the newest version of the Android operating system has managed to make its way to the HTC EVO 3D as an unofficial alpha port of a Galaxy Nexus build of CyanogenMod 10.

While it’s a fairly early port and not something that you’d particularly enjoy running on your phone, the fact that it’s booting and behaving somewhat like it should is quite remarkable.

Currently, the list of what is not working is pretty extensive (audio, 3G, WiFi, 3D, etc.), but with the way development goes, my bet is within a week or two we’ll have things at least as functional as CyanogenMod 9 has thus far been on the EVO 3D.

It’s currently being developed on Sprint/CDMA but looks like it will be ported to the GSM EVO 3D shortly, going by developer comments.

Once again, it’s a pretty exciting time in the EVO 3D root world. Hopefully the bugs will be squashed and features added soon and we can get a daily driver out of a CyanogenMod JB ROM.

    Ah! This is awesome. I was hoping for news of something like this. I knew I’d hear about here it first!

    Here’s to hoping this ends up getting official CM9/CM10 support. The EVO 3D deserves some official love too.

  • Have HTC released the kernel source for evo3d yet? That would be a big help since we cant get any love from sprint.

      The EVO 3D kernel source was released last year. There have been numerous custom kernels made for the 3D based off of that source and subsequent updates.

      The only kernel source not released that I know of is the ICS kernel source for the 3D, and since ICS is not out on Sprint that’s kind of a bit off.

        Indeed. The ICS kernel source is really the last thing preventing the EVO 3D from getting the official AOSP ROMs that I’ve been looking for.

        The month is half way over now, so hopefully Sprint just outs the ICS update so that HTC can follow up with the kernel source. Official CM9/CM10 here we come.
