FullHDMI for HTC EVO now available in Android Market
Just two weeks after orrebmas released the first public beta of FullHDMI, an app he created that enables HDMI mirroring on the HTC EVO 4G, it has been updated to version 1.0 and is now available in Android Market for $2.99.
FullHDMI requires root and a special kernel for full functionality, including audio control and hardware acceleration, but it will work without the kernel or root. The mirroring experience will be slow and choppy under the latter condition, though, so root at the very least is certainly recommended (tutorial here). Both AOSP- and Sense-based ROMs are supported.
The app features a sleek new UI (compared to the beta) and supports portrait and landscape orientation, custom screen mode, and resolution switching.

For those who don’t know, the HTC EVO’s current out-of-the-box HDMI functionality is limited to outputting personal video recordings, photos, and a handful of apps. HDMI mirroring removes this limit, allowing everything displayed on the EVO’s screen to be shown (mirrored) on your TV. Yes, that means all your apps, games, and movies can be enjoyed on a big screen.
