AnthraX has been a name in custom HTC EVO kernels for the past few years, but since breaking away and setting up, now it’s also becoming an exclusive development site for ROMs based off of the kernels. NegaliteBluROM ICS, an Android Ice Cream Sandwich/Sense 3.6 ROM for the HTC EVO 3D, is one of the first two exclusive ROMs being hosted on Chad Goodman’s site to incorporate Anthrax kernel development.

NegaLite-BluRom ICS is a stripped-down, AnthraX-driven, Sense-based ROM based on the Virgin Mobile EVO base. It comes with the Playstation Store Support, XLoud audio, Sony Bravia mods, LeeDroid tweaks, and a host of other options that we’ve come to love in various ROMs.

Although the developer suggests you be S-OFF, you should have no issues with S-ON and 4EXT recovery.

If you’re going to flash a ROM with a custom kernel (or without, for that matter), make sure to make a nandroid backup beforehand. If you’re not S-OFF, you will need either 4EXT recovery, Flash Image GUI, or flashing using Fastboot mode in order to write the kernel data. If you boot up and have no WiFi, your kernel did not flash properly.

It should be interesting to see what all developers become AnthraX-exclusive ROM distributors.
