Re: [ROM] Azrael v2.3 [[NEW 3.30.651.2 OTA]] [[Froyo 2.2]] [[Sense]] Updated 10/26/20

To install on your Evo:

1. Copy Azrael_v2.5_by_Ricsim78.zip to the root of your SD card.
2. Shut off your phone and boot into recovery.
3. Do a full wipe (Data, cache, Dalvik, SD Ext.) Do it twice to be sure if you want to!
4. Install Azrael_v2.5_by_Ricsim78.zip. It should take a few minutes to install.
5. Reboot the phone. It should take a long time to start up the first time. Please be patient!
6. If all goes well, enjoy your new ROM!
7. If not, start over from step 2 after pulling your battery.

To install a custom kernel: Let it load into the ROM first and then reboot into recovery and wipe the cache and Dalvik. Then install the custom kernel and reboot.

To install a theme: Let it load into the ROM first and then reboot into recovery and wipe the cache and Dalvik. Then install the theme and reboot.

How to backup and restore using Titanium backup Here is the method I use to backup my phone information before I wipe and install a new ROM
  • I backup my entire phone with a batch "Backup all user apps + system data"
  • Wipe and install the new ROM,
  • I open Titanium Backup (TB) and give it super user rights.
  • I hit "Updates?" in TB and make sure I am running the latest.
  • I hit "Problems?" in TB and make sure I am using Busybox 1.60
  • Hit menu and select batch
  • Select "Backup all new apps + newer versions of apps", if any.
  • Select "Restore missing apps with data"
  • Go over the list and make sure you are restoring only what you want
  • Hit run batch operation
  • After it completes, go back into TB and backup restore.
  • Restore contacts twice
  • Restore MMS twice
  • Restore Mail twice
  • If any of the 3 above do not take, do it again
  • Restart your phone
  • Verify mail, MMS, and contacts restored. If not, restore again.

Why Amon RA and not Clockwork recovery?

Clockwork does not wipe the Dalvik properly (if at all). I personally have had nothing but problems with both Clockwork and ROM manager

I have said countless times that if you use either of the above, it is at your own risk. Install Amon RA recovery and I bet any wiping/installing problems will go away.

If you already are using ROM manager, pick the option to install a custom recovery, choose Amon RA 1.8. If that option is greyed out, reinstall the latest Clockwork then install RA.

Note: Do not do a fix permissions with anything unless you need to, you can screw stuff up that way.

Trust me, the new ROM is devoid of problems (I have never tested a ROM this much before releasing it). If you experience any, it is either something you are doing wrong or incomplete wipes thanks to your recovery not doing it's job properly.

Which kernels work with this ROM?

Any that are designed for a Sense ROM. This includes:
  • Netarchy's
  • Kingclick's
  • Hero Over's
  • Ziggy's
  • HTC's

Which kernel do you recommend to use?

I cannot recommend a kernel for you because each EVO reacts different. The best for my phone can be the worse for yours.

You have to try the different ones available and pick the one that works best for you. What I do is start with their latest and work your way down until you find one that works well. Then stick with it.

This also goes for overclocking, SetCPU settings, etc.

Which themes work with this ROM?

Themes make your phone look nice but can also add problems to an otherwise smooth running ROM. You can use any theme you wish, but Nandroid first and if anything is broken, please do not blame the ROM as it is the theme that added the problem.

This includes my older modded themes and any theme made for 3.29 and 3.30 OTA updates They may work or they may work but break things.

Using my theme avoids this problem. It matches with my ROM perfectly and breaks nothing. Also, my theme is optimized for maximum speed and reduces the overhead of a theme (most themes are not optimized and add a bunch of stuff which increases system overhead, reduces battery life and speed a bit). As an added perk, it is a small download.

Hey, why are you using an older OTA when everyone else seems to be running the new 3.30.XXX.X OTA?
  1. The new OTA is not made for hardware versions 0003, 0002, or 0001. It is made for new Evo's that were made a few weeks ago and have hardware 0004
  2. The new OTA happens to drain battery faster on the older hardware.
  3. Azrael is identical to OmegaEVO is all ways except they have different bases.
  4. On my version 0003 hardware, Azrael is much faster
  5. Battery life increased immediately for me as soon as I used Azrael. With Omega, my idle usage was abnormally high
  6. Downloads and everything seem to work much better now.

The other Devs likely do not realize it yet, or they want to have the bleeding edge in their ROMS. For me, I listened to the feedback of my users and I acted accordingly (also basing it on my own personal experience).

Azrael will work better for HW versions 0001,0002, and 0003.
OmegaEVO will work better for HW versions 0004 (newer EVO's).

The new Evo's have a different camera in them, plus the software for the camera is different. The kernel is also different. There is also some hardware setting XML files in the new 3.30.XXX.X ROMS.

**Wireless tethering fix** (Thanks to Novarider for mentioning it, Vaelek for making it!)

To get wireless tethering working, Just follow the instructions below.

To install:

First, please uninstall any previous version of Wireless tethering you have installed.


  1. located at /sdcard/Azrael_apps
  2. Go to Settings>Applications and put a check on Unknown sources. Ignore the warnings, you are fine!
  3. Use Astro (or file manager of choice) Choose File manager>Install
  4. Click on Install.
  5. Profit!

Thank you very much, glad you like it!

Just to let you know, LowRider just updated his theme to version 2.6. He said the Gmail is fixed for good and there is all sorts of other enhancements.

You can download the version he customized for my ROM in my OP.
