CyanogenMod 6.1 Android 2.2 Froyo Custom ROM for HTC EVO 4G is now available for download. This is an AOSP build coming straight from Cyanogen himself and is free from any extensive theming. The ROM installation process is fairly simple and you need to have a rooted HTC EVO 4G with recovery image in order to get this running.
According to Cyanogen, you might have to upgrade your Radio too. You can consult Cyanogen Wiki to upgrade your Radio and for installing a recovery image manually. Here are the step by step instructions to install / flash CyanogenMod 6.1 Android 2.2 Froyo Custom ROM on your HTC Evo 4G:
- The first step is to download CyanogenMod 6.1 Android 2.2 Froyo Release Candidate for HTC EVO 4G.
- Connect your phone to the computer, mount SD card and copy the downloaded file to SD card root.
- Now download ROM Manager from Market on your phone.
- Launch the ROM Manager and follow onscreen instructions to flash ClockWorkMod Recovery.
- Once you have Recovery flashed / installed, reboot your phone into recovery by tapping on the second option in ROM Manager.
- Once in recovery mode, scroll down to backup and make a full backup. Backing up your current data and settings is necessary because this will be your last resort in case anything goes wrong during the ROM flashing process. After backing up, you can also update the radio if necessary.
- Now go back to recovery main menu and navigate down to WIPE. Wipe all the settings including delvik cache.
- After you are done with WIPE, go to Install ROM from Zip on SD card and follow onscreen instructions to install the ROM.
- Once the installation is finished, your phone will reboot. Please note that the first reboot is always a bit time consuming, so hang in there.
And there you go! You are now running the latest CyanogenMod Custom ROM on your phone. In case you already have a CM variant running on your phone, then simply download and install the new ROM from ROM Manager. Please note that HDMI and 4G are still not working in this ROM and you might have to wait for a final release in order to get them operational.
