Verizon is great but I never had a problem with sprint. No dropped calls nor anything.

No root of Froyo needed. Some people say it doesn't work others have no issue. I just can't tell if I am seeing videos with the Lite or 10.1.

I installed the file from my lap to onto the SD card. Then used appinstaller to to install the .apk file on the phone.

I installed it today but have yet to verify if it is really using the Flash Lite or the 10.1.

Simple Root Unlocks HTC Evo 4G in One Click



Windows: Rooting an Android phone often involves entering commands into a terminal or working through multi-step procedures. Not so with the Sprint Evo 4G, which you can root and modify to your heart's content with a one-click Simple Root tool.

Springing from the XDA forums, this app also offers one-click buttons for unlocking your phone's flash memory and flash your chosen firmware image onto your 4G phone, after you connect it via USB. It's a much more simple process than rooting a Droid, and vastly easier than unlocking an older G1 or other Android model.

Simple Root is a free download for Windows systems. As with all rooting or firmware-modifying tools, be aware that bad things can happen, and you should make backups where you can.

SimpleRoot .1 —— 3 Click Root w/ nand unlock!! [xda-developers via AndroidGuys]

No Problem. It is amazing how quick these guys get the stuff to work in different applications than intended. And the EVO seems to take the mods well. One button rooting? haha That is awesome.

I guess I will surf around and see if I find some sites that have a lot of flash media and try them out. Hopefully it actually works. lol

I know we had this convo already but my friend bought the EVO and hated it he said it froze and that the battery lasted him a couple of HRS! I thought we agreed that it should last 20 HRS?? and then i stumble with this video....

what do you all think??

My Evo got 25-26 hours on average with the stock battery. I don't use 4G much as the coverage by me is spotty at best. But that included lots of text messages, emails, some talk time, GPS and such. I didn't think that was bad at all.

Worst case was leaving the factory settings, GPS on, watching videos and such I still got 14 hours. A couple of hours is unheard of. My 1750 battery I get 26-30 hours of use.

There is no question that the EVO is lacking in battery life when you leave GPS, WiFi, 4G, blue tooth and other power sucking modes on all the time. Use them when needed only. Will save a ton for sure. They just use a lot of power to run those.

4g isn't worth using right now even if u get full signal. I can get 20+ hours with lots of use. Maybe your buddy got a bad battery. But most folks are getting excellent battery life.

I don't know about that. I had a full signal last night and did a speed test. 3.5 - 4.5mb down is nice versus 3G at 1.2 or so max. Especially when streaming stuff. For surfing the web and most emails attachments 3g if fine.

When i had full 4g i was hitting almost 5mb. On 3g i average close to 3mb. For normal browsing, 4g isn't needed. Maybe if i was video conferencing or something

i agree with mook... unless you are downloading bigger files (like teathering on a laptop), i cant see a need for something faster than what we already have... christ my phone is faster than most peoples home internet connections
