The HTC EVO 4G was announced last year by Sprint and it still is one of the most popular Android handset in the United States.
The handset launched with Android 2.1 on-board, but received an Android 2.2 FroYo update pretty quickly. HTC recently confirmed that the EVO 4G along with a bunch of other handsets, will be tasting Gingerbread by Q2 or Q3 of this year.
Now, one of the XDA member wdfowty has managed to get his hands on the leaked RUU of the EVO 4G Android 2.3 Gingerbread update. The leaked RUU has already been rooted, zip-aligned and de-odexed by another fellow XDA member.
Users who have flashed this ROM on their EVO 4G are reporting improved responsiveness, and increased free space in the internal storage of the device.
Sadly, the ROM comes with Sense v1.0, which means that the Sense version on the EVO 4G will remain the same even when the final version of Gingerbread comes out.
HTC EVO 4G owners should head over to this thread to know more about the leaked RUU.
