New EVO Official Update Out and Rooted

Thanks to our favorite leak provider, XDA member Football, EVO users can now enjoy a brand new stock rom, courtesy of Sprint and HTC. Fast as our community works, within an hour and a half of being posted, the rom was uploaded to several mirrors in different flavors (Odexed and Deodexed), loaded with root permissions and busybox, all ready in a zip flashable package, courtesy of XDA member aamikam.

The update seems to present some updates to the camera, a new version of the kernel, newer hBoot, and a few system changes as well. This is a fairly minor revision, but the bug fixes can improve on the cooked roms from our beloved chefs.

kernel has changed.
recovery.img has changed.
hboot has changed.
radio is the same.
system has changed (as calkulin outlined).
wimax is the same.

You can find more information in the original thread and in the rooted version thread.
