Just because the HTC EVO 4G isn't on the Sense 3.0 guest list doesn't mean it still can't crash the party. We've already seen it getting some sweet 3.0 action from Leoisright's HTC Sensation port, after all, so we know it can handle more than HTC says/thinks it can.

But if you're not ready to fully commit to a new Sense (or a new ROM) and just want a taste of one of the goodies, then a fine place to start is the lock screen. GODZSON has put out 3.0's new "pull on the ring to unlock" lock screen as a normal .apk for those using a Gingerbread ROM with Sense 2.x to install on their rooted EVOs, no flashing required.

It's not guaranteed to work on all custom ROMs that meet this criteria and it currently doesn't support shortcuts (the alarm and music widget both work), but if you'd rather drag a ring up than swipe a slider down or to the side to get to your home screen, then head over to XDA for the goods.

  • There are so many reason why you should root your HTC EVO. This side is one of the biggest reasons why. Everyday we learn something new that we can add to our phones. I just hope that the Gingerbread 2.3 comes with a Sense update too. Lets cross our fingers.

  • I meant to say This site is the biggest reason why.

  • Where can I get that wallpaper!? It’s sweet!
