It is kind of confusing i guess... There are ROMS out there that uncap the fps. To my knowledge they do it by refreshing the screen faster. Some say this can damage the screen but some say thats how the HTC HD2 is from the factory. I don't know all the details but what I do know is I've seen first hand someone with a rooted Evo with a custom ROM that had the fps uncapped and it's no placebo effect. It's SO much smoother scrolling around n stuff. Much more responsive too. What I would like more than that though is for HTC to raise the fps capture during 720P videos. 22fps is absolutely unacceptable for "HD". Especially when the competition is doing over 25 and some at 30fps..

My guess is the excuse of it being hardware is just to hold us over and make us forget. Many petitions and things are being put on a lot of forums, and everyone is doing the part of emailing Dan Hesse and HTC to fix the issue. Dan Hesse did email a member back over at XDA and said they are trying to find a fix.

This can be changed in the software by disabling the HDMI while not in use. Therefore letting the Snapdragon use full GPU, it's just up to HTC to find something stable to let this happen.

Re: 30 FPS capThe HDMI out is problematic and a joke anyway. They should have just nixed that idea and went for as much fps as it can muster.
I have never experienced one issue with the HDMI yet. So that claim is baseless... The HDMI is a fantastic idea, but it would be better to actually show the home screen on the tv.

So from what I am understanding.. The 30fps can be changed in the software. Just HTC probably won't do anything about it.. Maybe they figure let the android people hack an d mess with it. So maybe if someone kind find a way to lift the 30fps and still have HDMI out work.. They might be able to make an app for the evo and make some money!

I think htc won't do anything about the 30fps issues because the geek to average person ratio is probably about 10 to 1 with one being the geeks. The average person don't notice anything wrong with their frame rates and probably can care less about increasing it...so why try to fix something thats not broken to satisfy a few geeks...i'm okay with it.

I'm so glad I rooted my phone and flashed a rom/kernel with a fix.
It's a night and day difference. Performance increases tenfold.
To others it may not seem like a "problem"...
But to me it's a problem and needs a "fix"...
Yeah, I got an e-mail from HTC saying that they are looking into it.

The evos screen looked so much better with the colors and screen res but the Aria destroyed my Evo with the all around buttery smooth operation... that ticked me off more than a little.
Question, is it true what the xda devs say? How the hd2 uses the same "refresh twice as much" method they are doing to the evo to fix the cap? If thats the case then im not so worried anymore about screen durability, and i can buy a bigger mah (but same size) battery for the slight drain
I hope this 2.2 root happens soon because i rather have a perfectly working evo than switch to the epic

The HTC HD2 doens't have the cap either. playing around with the Win Mobile 6.5, it's buttery smooth, and scrolls to the touch. Next to my phone, his phone looked as if his phone was faster than mine, which made windows mobile look better than android!
But at any rate, we know it's the EVO.

Re: 30 FPS cap
All other android phones operate up around 50 fps in the general UI parts of the OS. There is no risk of damaging the screen when this is the norm. Google even says that they target 60 fps for the OS and hit that number most of the time. Obviously hardcore games don't. But the general UI sure does.
