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!

Microsoft To Invest in Cyanogen’s Future OS War?

Reports indicate that Microsoft is investing in the rogue Android forker Cyanogen. The funding round is said to be upwards of $70 million, and could allow for a cooperation between Cyanogen and the Silicon Valley giant in the ongoing battle of mobile operating systems. This could be a strategic movement in coordination with other investors given Cyanogen's expression of rebellion against Google's tightening control over Android, as the custom ROM maker has recently spoken out against the "tyranny" of Google in regards...

Samsung Cutting Bloat, Trimming TouchWiz

Reports keep iterating over the rumors that Samsung has been trimming down TouchWiz for its upcoming devices.
