Enter God Mode

How would you like to have an incredibly fast rom, based on the latest of the latest for your EVO? Sure, you can find a few roms that will fit this description and many will indeed offer some speed improvements and enhancements, but in order to make your device truly fly, people fall back on overclocking the processor.

SD Card Partitioning 101

The eternal quest to get the most out of our non expandable, very limited internal storage has been a paramount objective since the early days of mobile devices. We have, through the years, gone through solutions such as removal of bloatware, which is software bundled in our devices by manufacturers and carriers, compressing apps, having files online on systems such as dropbox or ftp, and much more. On Android, one rather big limitation was that you could originally not place...

Updated Your EVO 4G To Stock 4.24 And Miss The Reboot Options? Here Is A Fix…

We all like and enjoy the ability to reboot into diferent modes on our Android devices. It saves us from having to manipulate our devices in weird and strange ways as well as having to perform weird button combination presses. If you updated to the recent update to Gingerbread on the EVO and like the stock rom, you will likely be missing out on this great feature and the ease of a one click access to Recovery. Well, fear not...

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...

The Definitive Wake Lock Issue Fix For EVO

One of the most annoying issues that has pestered the HTC EVO 4G for a long time is the one known as the "Wake Lock", which is an issue that seemingly keeps your phone wide awake even though you put it to sleep. This seemingly innocent issue drains your battery like crazy. This is not rom type specific, which means that you will get it regardless of you being on a Sense rom or an AOSP rom. There have been...

Tired of Software Skinning? How About Hardware Skinning?

Personalized devices have been a cornerstone of our little world. Skins of all kinds and for all kinds of applications have made their way across XDA, giving us the right amount of eye candy that we need when we look at our screens. But what about the phone itself? Devices have different designs and as of late, different color schemes on the body. One such case is the HTC EVO 4G, which sports a red interior that appeals to quite...

WiMax Notifier for EVO Gets Updated

There was an app sometime last year that came out for the EVO, which allowed you to use WiMax's LED light to display notifications for SMS messages. The app was left alone for a while until recently. XDA members JGW310 and Noxious Ninja decided to pick up the project where it left off. However, they are doing a whole re-writing of the app to make this great concept do even more than just alerting you of inbound text messages. The new...

Safety Issue With Stock EVO MicroUSB Cables

We are stepping sideways on the news right now to bring you a rather interesting discovery made by XDA member Childofthehorn. She claims that the cables that are manufactured by HTC to connect our devices to the computers and chargers, particularly those that come with the EVO (USB to microUSB) are badly engineered. After talking to a few people, it seems that hers is not the only one to suffer the tragedy. It seems (and we will let you read all...
