CyanogenMod for the EVO Finally Gets WiMax!
You guys waited for it, and while it is still a work in progress, CM lovers will finally get a chance to use their favorite roms in the way the EVO was meant to be used…. with 4G speeds. XDA member Shinzul just posted that the first available alpha of the work him and XDA moderator toastcfh along with a few other people and testers have been cranking over the past few months. The #TeamWin has finally released this CM rom equipped with the awaited WiMax capabilities. The rom itself is rather buggy, but it looks like WiMax is in working state. There are several bugs present with this rom, so don’t expect a fully functional and stable release because this isn’t it. However, after some testing, fixing, and tweaking a final version will come to pass.
Use this one at your own risk and try to provide good feedback to the devs so that the final version gets closer to a reality.
Courtesy of #TeamWin, I present the first public release of the CyanogenMod Wimax Alpha!
Over the past month and a half, toastcfh and I have worked endlessly day and night, over vacations and holidays to bring this achievement to the great community of XDA.

It's a slippery slope...
