WiMax working in CyanogenMod 6.1.1

Fantastic news for folks running CyanogenMod on their EVO 4Gs: WiMax is now working under Cyanogen 6.1.1, according to this xda-developers thread, and the Twitter feeds of the hackers responsible, toastcfh and shinzul. One of them is getting amazing DL speeds, as seen in the image below.

This has been at the top of the request list for EVO users for some time and a pool of just over $2,500 has been raised by xda-developers members for the purpose of getting the feature up and running in CM. WiMax is not yet available in the CyanogenMod 6.1.1 offered up at the official CM site, but 4G is likely coming to your hacked EVO soon. Perhaps in the next CyanogenMod release?

Thanks for the heads up, folks!
