This article mentions rooting and the flashing of non-stock roms. If you’re unfamiliar with either term, hit up our primers here and here for additional information

As with most popular Android phones, a community of developers has cropped up over at xda-developers, who are dedicating their time and leet programming skills to ‘cooking’ and releasing improved ROMs for the EVO 4G.

In this case, developer Avalunchmods has released an overclockable version of Froyo for the EVO 4G, ported from the leaked Nexus One FRF72 release, and it seems like it’s nearly good enough to be a daily driver. The ROM's biggest issue at the moment is getting the camera to work, but for users who don’t use the camera often, or just can’t wait to get Froyo running on their EVO, it’s probably worth checking out.

We haven’t had a chance to load it up on our in-house EVO, but we’re planning on giving it a run through in the next few days. You can grab the ROM here.

The specific features that are currently working in the ROM are:

  • Working-A2dp BT
  • Some mono headsets.
  • Wifi
  • GPS
  • Phone
  • SMS
  • MMS-Handscent
  • Video player
  • Lights
  • JIT
  • Market

And as previously mentioned, the camera is not yet functional.

Has anyone given this ROM a test drive yet? How is it running for you? Let us know in the comments.
