With Sprint gearing up for it’s LTE rollout, it’s very possible that the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4g Touch could be Sprint’s last WiMax release.

That doesn’t mean the development stops, however. XDA Senior Member autoprime has released a modification that will allow users full access to the Epic Touch’s WiMax settings. As autoprime explains:

As the WiMax enthusiasts already know… we can edit 99% of the same values as the OG Epic already using both ##DATA# > View > WiMAX and ##DEBUG# menus. Possibly the most useful edit is setting the Entry Rx levels from -89 to -110.. allowing those in low signal areas to still jump on 4G. The big edit that was missing on the E4GT was th

MIUI Finally Gives HTC EVO 4G Users WiMAX

MIUI HTC Evo

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 CIU. . . READ ON »

LTE on Sprint? Maybe someday…

nownetwork1

There was a time where I would gladly jump ship to another carrier to get the best phone out there. I switched back and forth every couple of months it seemed. For me, I settled down when the G1 came out, stayed on T-Mobile though the Nexus One and the Nexus S. But then, I was given a new reason to jump ship. Verizon Wireless launched 4GLTE in my area, and that was all the reason I needed. A faster network is a vital thing in a world with multitasking, streaming content, and “the cloud” on our devices. In the US, the faster network surge started with Sprint and their WiMax network. Much of the HTC EVO’s success is often attributed to Sprint’s WiMax network.

LTE vs. WiMax, The Great Wireless Debate

lte_vs_wimax_logo

For those who haven’t been following the debate of LTE vs WiMax network upgrades we are here to fill you in on what is going on in the latest of wireless networks.

LTE :

This stands for Long Term Evolution and it is a network upgrade (and albeit a big one!).

Verizon has proposed theoretical speeds that could be up to 75Mbps down and 20Mbps up based on multiple sources. If speeds like these can be achieved, it would allow for broader development in areas such as HD Media Streaming and Data Intensive apps. So far this sounds great and it would require a new phone along with it, as current CDMA phones do not support LTE network protocols. Currently, Verizon and AT&T have confirmed LTE roll-outs (AT&. . .
