UPDATE: See my updated review of the latest Evo Deck ROM!
It’s been awhile since I’ve updated my ROM on my HTC Evo 4G, mostly because I let my friend borrow it but I finally got it back plus there are many great Gingerbread ROMs for Evo now.
For one, the CyanogenMod 7 ROM is highly recommended except it doesn’t support 4G.
BUT, there’s a Gingerbread Evo Deck ROM which is based on CyanogenMod 7 with 4G enabled plus HDMI mirroring.
I just installed this ROM and it is pretty amazing, my 4G works and also I can use the Google Talk Video. (The ROM is based on Android 2.3.4 latest Gingerbread.)
How to Install Gingerbread Evo Deck ROM!
First, download the ROM file here:
Evo Deck ROM Download
(Or you can also check here for the latest version at XDA Developers.)
Second, download Google Apps here:
Download Google Apps
Third, copy over the two files to your Evo’s SD Card.
Fourth, reboot into Bootloader by hitting the Power Button while holding down the Volume Down button.
Go into Recovery, backup your current ROM (optional), then wipe data/reset to factory.
And flash zip from sd card and zip both gingerbread-evo-deck-1.2b.zip and gapps-evo-20110509.zip.
One more note, the gapps file might not install, if that happens, just “Toggle signature verification” and try again.
Reboot and rejoice, you finally have Gingerbread Evo, rooted!

Your 4G should work out of the box but in case it doesn’t, you can check out this post on XDA to update your 4G radio to the latest. (I didn’t btw, my 4G works fine. Getting 6.4Mbps down/941Kbps upload here in San Francisco!!!!)
Here’s Google Talk Video working now on my phone:
