CM10 on my EvoLTE
I posted this in another thread a day or two ago but I thought I might as well put it up in a more easily readable area as well. I've been running deck's 8-20 build of CM10 on my Evo since I filmed that and I'm pretty impressed. It really is ready to be used as a daily, everything works, the only thing that's still a bit messed up is the camera which is a bit laggier than on Sense ROMs. I'll be doing a followup video to this first one this weekend, so if anyone has any questions or something you'd like to see in the video, let me know!

- Something AOSP
All that said the stock JB camera software lags behind Sense: no burst mode, shutter is not quite as fast, etc. A lot of people keep a Sense ROM in backup and switch over when they know they are going to need the camera for important shots, then switch back when done.
Keep in mind that this is still very much a "development" ROM, and while everything "works," there are things that are not yet fully optimized. Even with all that, going back to Sense is painful after having run this for a couple of weeks.

HDR = High Dynamic Range. The camera takes 3 instantaneous shots at 3 different exposures and then combines them to give you closer to the range of light to dark that the human eye sees. As you can see from the images in my previous post, HDR images can be dramatically better.

With the camera turned on, tap "A" and choose "HDR".
Experiment. Some lighting situations benefit enormously and some hardly at all. Sometimes landscapes in full sun look better without HDR. I see the most dramatic results indoors with normal lighting and flash turned off.
HDR must be reactivated for every camera session. It turns off when you turn the camera off.
I just now made two images of the coffee table in front of my chair. The first image is without HDR and the second image with HDR turned on.

Re: CM10 on my EvoLTE
Okay i have to admit, i haven't done much but point and shoot with my camera so far. I mostly use it when my daughter dont have her digital with her.
Now i have to say wow, what a huge difference. Today near me its overcast and the HDR setting takes the bland and makes it truly outstanding.
I hope Deck gets the camera fully functional on CM 10 because i love aosp but i dont want to sacrifice function for it
On a side note: I never took the ota update due to root. When i install CM10 will that stop the pesky notification light from always blinking. Blinked from the day i bought it

Re: CM10 on my EvoLTE
sense camera will be a while if at all for a port to CM, just use a different camera app on cm and you can achieve HDR.
there is a later version of cm10 as well. 8-26My Wallpaper Collection!!! Updated 7/12/2011 (some NSFW)

I just backup and restore between mean ROM and cmx. When I know I'm going to need the camera I just quickly restore my mean ROM from twrp and shoot away! For everything else, I rock with cmx! Nothing like fully functional multitasking on a silky smooth AOSP ROM! A full back up takes about 3 minutes to complete. A full restore takes about 2 minutes.
