MIUI Finally Gives HTC EVO 4G Users WiMAX
For those who are still holding on to their HTC EVO 4G phones, among the most developed and popular phones of all time on XDA, you are in for a treat.
With ROMs ranging from HTC Sense 1.0 to HTC Sense 3.5, from 2.1 Eclair to 2.3 Gingerbread, there isn’t much the original Evo hasn’t gotten. They’ve had CyanogenMod6 and CyanogenMod7 and there’s even some works for Ice Cream Sandwich and talk of CyanogenMod9.
However, there is one thing the HTC EVO 4G has never had before: Wimax on an MIUI port. That is, until now.
XDA Recognized Developer Sinistertensai, along with the very dreamy Team Nocturnal, has released an MIUI port that’s based on CyanogenMod7 (affectionately nicknamed CIUI…get it? CyanogenMod-IUI). It looks like MIUI and it feels like MIUI but it’s based on the legendary CM7 which, as Evo users already know, can get 4g Wimax. So, now, people who love the feel of MIUI can finally feel the love of 4g data.
Now, this is a brand new ROM. This means beta release which means there’s a few bugs, but we won’t hold against anyone because they’ll inevitably get fixed. Additionally, Sinistertensai has asked that any themers or developers who want help out with this super sexy ROM get a hold of him. The more the merrier, as the old saying goes.
If you’re looking to try out this highly optimized, super sexy, WiMAX-capable and MIUI-style ROM, then you can find a full feature list, installation instructions and download links in the original thread. For you MIUI fans on the OG Evo who’ve wanted WiMAX, you can now finally have it!

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this. But a particularly...
