It may not seem like it at first, but yes the commercial below is supposed to be for the EVO Shift. So what’s the problem with it? After you watch, you should notice a particular lack of said EVO Shift. The commercial is essentially 30 seconds of Sprint boasting about the original EVO with a Shift cameo at the very end. The lead in makes sense and all, show… Read more

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.

HTC EVO 4G dock by KiDiGi

Just last night my extended EVO battery died on me (after 36 hours of use) right as I lay down in bed, shut off the lights and plugged in my earbuds. I went through my four batteries–yes, I have four–popping each one into the back of my EVO and rebooting in search of enough juice to send me off to dreamland by way of the Coast to Coast AM highway. During… Read more

Amazon has both devices available for $99.99 on a new contract. The catch is that you must be a new Sprint customer; extensions aren’t part of the deal. And, not to pressure you, but if you purchase by the end of… Read more

Ben Heck solves HTC EVO power issues like a mad genius

I was satisfied with the results I experienced after I first got my Seidio 3,500mAh extended EVO battery, and consistent with the lifetime tests I ran using Juice Defender, I can still get close to two full days of standard usage between charges. I think I found a pretty good solution the the EVO’s battery issues. But I took the dullard’s way out…. Read more

MIUI ROM running on the EVO 4G

This unique ROM was put together by Chinese coders for the Nexus One and Desire. It has been ported to the EVO and you can grab the zip (at your own risk) over at xda-developers. I’m sure I missed plenty of features when shooting the first video embedded below, which is why I also included a second video showing off the features on Desire. Looking for an… Read more
