stops working when the device is rooted. I will root the phone as long as there is a good mod that retains all the functionality of the stock rom. Anyone with an Evo 3D that can give me some advice? What rom and root method did you use?

When you say all the functionality, I assume you mean the things that come with the Sense ROM. Like the e-mail client, the camera, the button layout, widget control, etc, etc. Correct?

Well, I guess all I can think of that I need is camera, 3D and GPS. When I rooted my HTC Zero my GPS would overheat and shut off the phone in a matter of minutes. I thought the phone had gone bad, but when I removed root and returned it to stock and tested the GPS, it worked perfect. I just don't want something like that to happen with this phone because it's plenty fast without a custom rom.

Use a Sense based rom like Synergy, I used that and it was fast and stable. As for rooting what HBoot are you? If 1.5 you need to unlock via HTC's method.

Just rooted yesterday with HTC method and flashed CleanROM. SO far so good. Everything functions like stock. My battery did drain faster, but I'm working on isolating the problem with that.

Battery drain was due to Facebook for Android trying to sync my live stream (even though I unchecked the box under 'account&sync' menu). I think it was due to my removing Friend Stream, so if you do root, you may want to keep FriendStream on your phone, just in case. I'm now at almost two hours off the charger and still at 96%.

    • Or, more simply, have a physical SIM that I can just move from one device to another.  Problem [already] solved.  Carrier doesn't have to be involved at any point in the process. I'll be among many (I'm sure) who will be glad to know if you see it.  Here in the DC area, Dish hasn't really done much yet.  I think I've seen some Dish gear around Richmond, but nothing here. - Trip
    • I like VICE.  They actually report on news no one else is willing to report. A lot of the places they go no sane person would want to be there.  They put their life on the line in many cases to get a story. From stories about the avocado wars in Mexico, being in the front lines against ISIS and Ukraine, to being embedded with terrorist organizations.   FAA might have some conspiracy 5G nut on their team or something.  At work ever year we have some one come in and say "hey, can you turn off the WIFI in my room? I don't want its radiation".  It doesn't make sense and their reasoning is always uneducated conspiracy. I can see someone coming into my office and acting crazy over C band disregarding everything else.
    • I think on esims it depends on how they implement it. If you can freely activate them on one phone while having it loaded on many that would be great.   I will let you know when I see Boost Mobile native 5g live here. So far no sign of even the plmn being active which I figure will be my first indicator. I look at changing networks with the TNX Sim and seem to get a full list of all carriers and their alternate plmns.
    • This is a result of the change I mentioned above, sparked by @PedroDaGr8 trying to log AT&T cells with a non-AT&T SIM that was reporting "out of service" but still capturing cell info. For the moment (subject to change as I keep testing and getting feedback), the "Connecting to" prefix will disappear when you connect in a scenario like that. I may adjust it to show a special prefix like "Limited LTE" or "No Data LTE" to make it more clear what is going on, but I also need to make sure that's only appearing at the proper times. When you were seeing just "LTE" in your screenshots, was there anything unusual about your connection? I see the app indicated you couldn't make calls; could you transfer data? Can you send a diagnostic report next time you see that?   I'm seeing this more frequently, unfortunately -- it has something to do with Android's power saving efforts I believe. Was the app in the foreground when it happened? When the screen updates, the notification and home screen widget are also updated -- but as seen with the widget for the past couple of years, Android doesn't always execute the update. I'm constantly trying to find ways around these limitations, since the app is useless if it's displaying stale data.
    • Bleh, hope not.  The eSIM is a huge step backwards to the bad old days and I have no desire to encourage their use. But in any event, maybe I should get Boost service, then, if people are already seeing it.  I can use it for AT&T until Dish native gear goes live in this area.  Have to ponder that a bit. - Trip
