Q‘Is there a way to make the HDMI on the EVo 4G work with all videos?’

A YES there is. If you aren’t rooted already do it and download HDMwIn from the market.

  • Q&A originally posted in the EVO 4G thread.

Q‘Is it possible through your phone to check recent activity or if its possible to get a notice if someone is trying or has accessed your Gmail account from another computer?’

A Nope. Your only choice is a browser.

  • Q&A originally posted in the EVO 4G thread.

Q‘Will the custom WP7 ROMs update to NODO or will you need to install a new ROM?’
