Unofficial fix for unofficial Froyo update for HTC EVO now available

Htc-logoWhile HTC is telling some customers via email to take their unofficially Froyo-ed HTC EVOs to Sprint for a software rollback followed by a proper update to version 3.26.651.6, which many stores actually haven't been able to do, the company tweeted that they are still "working on a simple, effortless solution" and asks that we "bear with [them] a bit longer."

And although HTC reminds us via another tweet that "unofficial software can create future issues," if you simply can't wait a minute longer to get the official Froyo build on your EVO, then xda-developers' Pojoman has a fix for you.

It's a ROM Update Utility (RUU) file he obtained from Sprint that will do a complete fresh install of the .6 update on your handset. Users who have applied it have confirmed that this is the real deal and that their EVOs are now up and running with the same Android 2.2 build that everyone else got in the official OTA update earlier this week.

Thanks, Chris & Joshua!
