CyanogenMod WiMAX Alpha ROM gives 4G back to rooted HTC EVO

Wimax-cyanogen-evo It's only been a few weeks since VIP devs Shinzul and toastcfh accomplished the monumental task of getting 4G working on the AOSP-based CyanogenMod custom ROM and as of yesterday, the fruits of all their hard work can now be enjoyed by anyone with a fully rooted HTC EVO.

CyanogenMod WiMAX Alpha, as the new ROM and kernel combo are being called, is now available for flashing. As is evident from its name, the ROM is still an alpha so there are bugs like not being able to use WiFi while 4G is on and having to reboot the EVO to turn 4G back on. 4G tethering isn't working either, and you need to follow specific steps to turn 4G on in the first place.

Even so, the ROM is stable enough for some (including Shinzul) to use as their daily driver and will only continue to get better over time. Nothing can stand in the way of the EVO community!
