Stock 4.67.651.3 kernel with Wireless-N fix available for rooted HTC EVO 4G

Stock kernelKernels are fun because they can help you overclock your rooted HTC EVO for better performance. They can also undervolt your phone for better battery life. Heck, they can even unlock full HDMI mirroring, a feature not included in the EVO 4G. 

But sometimes, you just need that stock kernel. 

Unfortunately, the EVO 4G's stock kernel has one huge flaw: Wireless-N (802.11n) is broken. And for some reason, HTC completely ignores this bug with every release they put out.

Now, if you're like me and don't need Wireless-N on your smartphone, then this may not be a big deal. But damn it, my EVO has the ability to use Wireless-N WiFi and I want the damn Wireless-N WiFi!

And thanks to OG EVO expert mjhuffer, you can get the stock kernel for the latest 4.67.651.3 OTA update and Wireless-N in one handy flashable .zip. Make sure you wipe your cache and Dalvik cache while flashing this kernel, and it probably wouldn't be a bad idea to make a quick Nandroid backup while you're at it.

    Help me understand something (newbee). So, my phone is rooted and all, and i am pretty happy with what i have so far. Since I can be curious and try different Kernal, does that mean i have to backup all my apps again and once I flash the new Kernal, i need to re-configure my home screen and themes and etc etc. I just spent good amount of time personlaizing my phone as i wanted and i don’t want to go throught that again (at least for few more months).
    So, will my configuration stay as is after i flash a new Kernal?

    More specifically, the kernel wont change stuff that a ROM changes. Feel free to swap out ROMs all you want. BUT, making a namdroid backup is still a great idea.

    OK… so here a question… with this Kernel installed… does the EVO just use Wireless-N by default? I don’t see any indication that I’m using Wireless-N versus Wireless-G. Is there some widget or some method to verify other than assuming something is going faster?

    Thanks

    I utilized a kernel that gave me the Hdmi feature, but blanked out my camera. So I installed this kernel to get my camera back but lost my Hdmi feature
