Useful Wiki Pages Containing Guides, Tutorials and ROM for EVO 4G
There is a lot of information available in the XDA forums, but it is always hard to keep everything in one place. The XDADeveloperWiki offers the possiblity to gather and share important information, guides, and tutorials. Although the user interface of the Wiki is pretty outdated, it is still a very useful way to keep all information in one place. XDA moderator toastcfh decided to make use of this system by amassing all guides, tutorials and ROMs that are currently found in the EVO 4G and other Android development sections. It is a very good way to keep overview, especially for beginning developers who need all important information without having to look everywhere for it.

I decided to create a guide and tutorial wiki because it seems a lot of great info is being buried in the forums. I just made a page on the Rom Wiki and used the format from it to create a Guide and Tutorial Wiki. Everyone is welcomed to update it as it is a Wiki. All thats asked is to keep it organised, so it will remain useful for everyone.As toastcfh already mentions, the Wiki allows any user to update the info.
Jump to the thread to find the links to the Wiki pages, we hope this will encourage developers to keep learning!

The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
