When the Cyanogen Mod team said that its Cyanogen Mod 9 was stable and then released the build a couple of weeks ago, the list of supported devices was flooded with Samsung and Sony Ericcson handsets. Fortunately, even though the team said they’ve stopped development on Cyanogen Mod 9, they continue to work hard at it. Since then, they’ve wanted to bring the popular firmware to as many devices as possible, and the HTC EVO 3D is no exception. Owners of the devices will be excited to hear that you are, as of now, able to download a nightly build of the Cyanogen Mod 9 right now. The current build is only available for GSM variants of the device, with CDMA remaining unsupported at this moment. Hopefully, as the team continues to work hard, it will become available for both variants of the handset. Still, those that own a GSM phone will be ecstatic to see that it’s now available. Cyanogen Mod 9 is definitely one of the better ROMs to flash out on the XDA Forums.
Nightly builds for Cyanogen Mod 10 (Android 4.1 Jelly Bean) only just began a couple of days ago. That said, it may be quite some time before the HTC EVO 3D see’s any nightly builds for that. Still, hold on to hope EVO 3D users, there is currently no reason as to why it shouldn’t receive the update to Cyanogen Mod 10 at some point in the future. If the HTC Dream can run on Jelly Bean with very little lag, it’s very possible for the EVO 3D to get the very same results (except without the lag).
If you didn’t know, a nightly build is something someone threw together during the day and compiled at night. Thus there is a possibility that you could be experiencing numerous bugs, but usually the Cyanogen Mod team is very good at releasing some stable nightly builds. Still, not everyone is perfect, and you may very well encounter some of those nasty bugs.
If you currently want to get your hands on Cyanogen Mod 9 for your HTC EVO 3D, you can download the latest nightly build from the source link below. It’ll take you to the Cyanogen Mod Downloads website. This is a “bleeding edge” release, so you just need to be aware that you’ll most likely find a lot of bugs throughout your Cyanogen Mod 9 experience. Before flashing the new ROM though, just make sure that you back up your entire handset, and then put Cyanogen Mod 9 on there.
As always, if you decide to go ahead and flash the ROM, the Cyanogen Mod team or TheDroidGuy is not responsible for your actions if things somehow go the wrong way. If you brick your phone, you brick your phone. You are the only person at fault and no one else. Not trying to scare anyone out of it, but flashing can sometimes be a dangerous task, but at the same time, the rewards of flashing are pretty awesome.
Let us know how it all works out for you!
