Truly Epic

Android Central forums moderator Ragnarokx has been hard at work building a great Froyo ROM for the Sprint Epic 4G, and it looks like a total winner.  Whether you want to blame Sprint, Samsung, or both for the hold-up of the official Froyo build for the Epic 4G, it's time to take matters into your own hands and see what your phone hardware is really capable of, and this is the perfect way to do it.  The TrulyEpic ROM has a huge feature list, here's a sampler:

  • Based On Froyo DK28
  • Deodexed
  • Zipaligned
  • Custom launcher (AMLauncher) optimized for speed, includes 3D app drawer
  • Removed Samsung and Sprint apps (can restore w/available zips)
  • Modified kernel supports EXT4 filesystem
  • Edify script/ClockworkMod3 compatible
  • Galaxy Tab email app, resized for the Epic's smaller screen
  • ClockworkMod3 baked into ROM for "reboot to recovery" apps

And that's less than half of the changes and enhancements.  I've told you guys once before that Ragnarokx is the man to see if you're tired of waiting for Froyo, and with the release of TrulyEpic I urge you to consider tossing the shackles, rooting your Epic 4G, and enjoying what it seems nobody in a corporate office wants you to have.  Ragnarokx is prepared to do whatever it takes to help -- you can find him lurking in the Epic 4G hacking forums.  Check out the TrulyEpic ROM here, it should help you make that decision.
