Good and EVO


urevo - for some reason we don't have an alt tag hereUR/EVO 4G LTE SIX is a custom Sense ROM for the HTC EVO 4G LTE that aims at stripping as much of  HTC Sense out as is possible while still maintaining complete functionality and the ability to make UR/EVO  “your EVO”.

UR/EVO adds the MIUI style battery bar, full sound-enhancer settings, track skip mod, long press for quick settings mod, modified HQ camera, hotspot hack, and the 5MB MMS mod.

The footprint of the ROM has been dropped significantly by stripping many of the shipped Sense applications and services. After stripping, the ROM is coming in at around  350MB, making it one of the smaller Sense ROMs for the EVO 4G LTE.

One of the things the developer reports stripping is some HTC spyware, which also removes the ability to update your PRL or profile. I must confess to being a little out of the loop on the PRL updater being spyware, as this was the first I had heard anyone claim that and if anyone can point me in a direction to look at that I’d appreciate it.

Users of UR/EVO across various threads are reporting what I have as my average battery life on most custom ROMs. Your mileage may vary, but the stripping does not seem to have a huge impact on battery vs other non-stock ROMs.

UR/EVO also includes an OTA updater for extras and alerts to new versions so you should always know when there’s something new without having to go back and look regularly.

This would be a great base ROM if you’re wanting to get rid of Sense but still want the camera. Make sure to update your PRL and Profile before switching to this ROM as after you do, updating PRL/Profile will be a pain.

    I’m still not sold on rooting. I feel like my google wallet information could be breached….

      If the ROM author installed a fake Google Wallet apk in the ROM, or a spykit, they could see what numbers you type as an unlock code, however the same is true on an unrooted phone if something has permission to view the screen.

      As the wallet application doesn’t store your data nor transmit your credit card information when you use NFC, that’s a pretty useless thing to have.

      When you use google wallet, you’re submitting to the vendor a Google Wallet temporary credit card number. Your phone does not have your CC info on it. That temp # is charged, Google authorizes and charges your card on their end.

      A hacked google wallet can’t do anything other than generate a credit card number that’s only good for that one attempt at that one place.

      and to get that credit card transaction generated you need the NFC of the receiver, your Android ID, your account.

      It’s just as easy to hack Wallet rooted as unrooted…

      All your CC info exists at and that’s all you, your phone, or any hacked apk could see.

      From the wallet site “The credit and debit cards you store in Google Wallet are safely encrypted on secure servers in a secure location. When you pay in-store, Google actually pays the merchant, and then processes the transaction with your selected credit or debit card. So neither the merchant nor the Android operating system ever gets your real payment card information.*”

      You’re more likely to be breached if you use a simple Google password, or use the same password for something else.

      If someone can get your password, they could set up another phone with your google username, install wallet, and go in-store and purchase something.

      The downside of this is they would very quickly have a useless phone as that MEID/Android ID would be tracked, banned, etc.

      You’d also see the charges instantly rather than getting a statement weeks later or a text message from your credit card issuer

        Wow awesome explanation. I didnt know all of that, just some of it.
        Thanks for the reply.

          Yeah, I think we probably need to do something on the perils or lack thereof of rooting a phone…

    I assume this is an ice cream sandwich custom rom

  • Does light weight translate into faster?

    • Avatar of Paul E King

      a little faster on initial boot, a little more free memory.. you’re probably not looking at a huge improvement by stripping sense, but you get some.

    Hmm this Rom doesn’t seem different enough for making me want to flash it. Thanks for the great reviews Paul!

  • I still can’t find anything to pull me from the deathgrip that is MeanRom. I just wish Viper would be updated. I have wanted to try that one out but I am very very happy so far.

  • How are you guys updating MeanRom. Are you doing a manual flash or the OTA?? And what custom recovery are you using?

    • Avatar of Paul E King

      There’s only one recovery that’s worth anything at the moment for the 4g lte… twrp

      I’d been doing OTA up until 43 which refused to download via OTA for some reason… they have a new script for the S-ON unsigned kernels they push.

      Unfortunately MeanROM falls victim to believing a complete install is an OTA… change 2 files, push 600 meg zip… they’re wasting terrabytes of bandwidth for incremental changes.
