MIUI Finally Gives HTC EVO 4G Users WiMAX
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!

If you're a fan of that, you might want an easier way to check your notifications as they come in, without losing your current lockscreen. Glimpse Notifications by XDA Senior Member xrad offers just that. You'd normally have to turn your screen on manually to see your notifications. Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
