Fix For “N” On 4.24.xxx EVO Sense Roms

Many of you are aware of the fact that Sprint, in all of their infinite wisdom decided to cut 802.11 n support from the EVO 4G when they released the latest update for the device (4.24.xxx.x). As weird as that move sounds, it is quite an annoying one, particularly if you stay with the stock version of this update or if you go to one of the various custom roms that still have this disabled. If you find yourself missing out on much higher data speeds on your N network, then check out what XDA member MultiDev has come up with. The dev found that the driver for this needed to be replaced for it to support N, so he took it upon himself and released a guide on how to get this functionality back on the EVO 4G. The dev gives two possible ways of getting this done, one of which involves adb and a few commands, while the other is simply flashing a zip file via recovery. Several members have tried this already and it seems to work well with some members reporting the longer range as well as increased speeds, typical on N networks.

Please try it out and leave some feedback for the dev.

As many of you know, wireless N support was removed in all the GB updates for the Evo (both the 4.22 and 4.24 stock ROMs lack Wireless N support)
