Enable Wireless N on EVO 4G
You may have heard that the EVO 4G’s wifi chip supports wireless N technology, but how do you go about enabling this on a Sense ROM?
XDA forum member chuckhriczko has found a way to do this and has even provided the download link for the required driver if you don’t fancy editing the /system/lib/modules/bcm4329.ko file. If you fancy having a go yourself using a hex editor, it is in this file that you can see where HTC disabled the wireless N and it is the same file where you can re-enable it.
Some knowledge of using adb to pull and push files to your device is required and of course a wireless N capable router or access point will be needed to test the results.

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
