Alot of people seem to have gone for the asda deal. This thread here is to keep all the technical talk in one thread.

Talk about roms, rooting, guides, issues and anything Evo 3D!

Ive had this phone for about two weeks now and will answer any questions to the best of my ability.

KuK and gx3k are also very knowledgeable, so im sure they'll help out aswell.

Hey KuK. Got As far as this last night and it showed loads of info in the cmd prompt. Looked like loads of different command line switches. What would be my next step for the mail? thanks for your help btw :)

Hi, 2 not very technical questions...

when i charge the phone it stays at either 96% or 99% for hours and never charges completely.

also, i saw on the original deal thread that people suggested removing the battery, pressing the power button for 15 seconds and then putting battery back on and switching on. What does this do? Is it some kind of reset?

Thanks in advance.
#43
I am not sure why your battery wouldn't fully charge. Must confess I haven't checked my percentage, I just charge it and move on with my life :)

I think it is some kind of reset for when the phone was stuck trying to boot or something. Have a look a few posts before that one and it might say what the problem was.

Just use ASTRO to install the apk?
#55
do a reboot again

should installed itself into the app drawer
#56
An adb reboot or standard? I looked into the system/app folder with astro and notice there is another mail.apk in there and a mail.odex should I leave them alone?
#57
standard will do
#58
And sorry to be ignorant but what exactly do you mean by app draw? Just where you click on All Apps?
#59
Still nothing showing in All Apps.
#60
In setting/applications/manage applications, there is only a mail widget of 0bytes showing.
#61
yes, left button .... under "M" for mail
#62
Maps, Market, Maxthon Mobile, Media Share, Messages, MikTweaks, Mirror Music, MyServices. No mail :(
#63
Shall I try an adb reboot again?
#64
he he

try it with a Mail.apk
#65
KuK
he he

try it with a Mail.apk

Sorry what do you mean 'with a mail.apk' ?
#66
it should have not been 2 mail apps

did use Mail or mail last time
#67
I only pushed one apk to the phone. Can't remember if I typed Mail or mail but it pushed the right one as I checked the date on it in ASTRO. The other one is an old mail.apk not one I put there. Maybe came with rom but didn't install?
#68
So do I try navigating in ASTRO again and just running the apk with today's date on it?
#69
adb push Mail.apk /system/app
#70
Will there be a guide to factory reset the phone as well. Also what happens if you change memory cards? Will I still be able to upgrade to ics if install mikrunny? Thanks in advance for any help!!
#71
What do you have in you system/app folder with regard to mail, mail.apk and mail.odex? Should I cut both mail.apks out and try again with adb?
#72
Won't let me delete the mail.apk
#73
try that... astro should not let you install a system file.
#74
error: protocol fault (no status)

This is what I got the first time I did adb reboot after pushing the file over. Just got it again after pushing the file over again.
#75
do a adb

adb push Mail.apk /system/app
#76
However I do now seem to have Mail in my app drawer and it runs to the Choose Mail Provider screen so I am not going to complain :)
#77
is still in your folder

#80
Ohh can't say I have heard that. Lemme check my settings. I was thinking a thunderstorm/lightning sound would have been cool with the flashing.
