Avatar ROM 2.1b released for HTC EVO 4G LTE

2013 03 03 22.11.34 - for some reason we don't have an alt tag hereAvatar is a custom AOSP ROM for the HTC EVO 4G LTE built on a CyanogenMOD 10.1 base that is designed to mimic the themeing capabilities of MIUI.

It includes the Bazooka Launcher, which is a evidently a modified Trebuchet that enhances your lockscreen with either the zipper and buckle (the one that’s included here), or you can switch back to a stock look. It also includes a theme chooser that downloads converted MIUI themes, an OTA updater that will check for ROM or Gapps updates, and a really pretty nice boot animation.

The default theme is called Denim. All the included apps are pocketed, and all additional apps are pocketable as well with the Denim theme.

The ROM was snappy as most CM variants, seemed welcoming from the first flash, and presented a lot of what I like about AOSP and everything I like about MIUI, along with some things I think solid MIUI-lovers will probably dislike. I dug it though.

It installs surprisingly quickly – so fast that I thought that I was having an issue with TWRP at first, but that was not the case.

Since it’s a CM base, you’ll need to grab a copy of a 4.2.2 compatible Gapps package, which is conveniently located in the first entry in the source thread.

There is also got a stable release that is based on Android 4.1.2/CM10, if the 4.2.2/CM10.1 version gives you any problems.
