Enable Wireless N on EVO 4G

Enable Wireless N on EVO 4G

You may have heard that the EVO 4G’s wifi chip supports wireless N technology, but how do you go about enabling this on a Sense ROM?

XDA forum member chuckhriczko has found a way to do this and has even provided the download link for the required driver if you don’t fancy editing the /system/lib/modules/bcm4329.ko file.  If you fancy having a go yourself using a hex editor, it is in this file that you can see where HTC disabled the wireless N and it is the same file where you can re-enable it.

Some knowledge of using adb to pull and push files to your device is required and of course a wireless N capable router or access point  will be needed to test the results.

I've been around XDA since 2007 when I bought the HTC Touch, well things have moved on a lot since then, and I've tried my hand at developing for WM and Android (still learning), but wanted to contribute more by becoming a News Writer for XDA.I write mainly Android articles, and some Windows Mobile. We're always sifting through the masses of threads for front page news, but do let me or the other guys know if you think anything is newsworthy including any breaking news!
