Boost the Speed of Your EVO’s 3G and Get Your Music Faster

Have you ever wondered if the download speeds over 3G could be improved on your EVO? I am sure that most of you have run SpeedTest.net at least a few times to check if Sprint is giving you the best they can. As it turns out, there is a way to actually make things a tad faster. XDA member Avalaunchmods has written a step by step procedure on how to increase the download speeds over 3G by .20 to .60 mbps! Not an incredible boost, but it certainly helps. The procedure is rather easy to follow, especially if you have ever done NAM programming on any CDMA phone. For this procedure, you must have a Sense rom (as you will need EPST) and your MSL or Master Subsidy Lock. This number can be obtained in a number of ways, including calling your carrier. However, the easiest way is to download MSL Reader from the market (free app). The changes will be gone upon flashing to a new rom.

As an added bonus, the download speeds of music applications like Rhapsody will increase as well, which was actually the whole point of this hack. Did this work for you? Please post some feedback along with the rom that you are using to see if this mod works better for other roms.

As we all know, HTC and Sprint borked downloads for apps like Rhapsody, Mog, Thumbplay.

I recently ran across the subject and i found a fix. It is very simple.

You can find more information in the mod thread.
