HTC EVO View 4G Port For EVO 4G…. Now With HDMI!
A little while back, we spoke about a rather interesting port for the EVO 4G, courtesy of XDA member the_plattypus. Well, while it seemed that the project was stalled for a while,the dev has been silently working on improving it and working out bugs and kinks. A few days ago, he posted that the rom was indeed getting better and that several things that people were longing for were finally fixed such as the ability to mirror your device onto a high definition screen/monitor through the device’s HDMI out. Other improvements include the newer Gingerbread 2.3.4 build being used as a base, and finally a smoother Rosie to play with.
The development will be put on hold momentarily due to technical difficulties with the dev’s computer in the form of his power supply being hit by lightning. He should be back shortly though. However, if you want to try it out and report back, it will certainly be useful to the dev.
