Awesome ROM dev Flipz has sent out a beta of his newest ROM(Fresh Evo 3.0) to testers. Unlike other FroYo ROMs, such as CM6, Fresh Evo 3.0 is based on the official (but not final) Android 2.2 update (accidentally) released by HTC last night, rather than AOSP (Android Open Source Project) code. Hopefully, this provides an experience close to stock, but with minor improvements.

Fresh ROMs tend to provide better performance (both in terms of benchmarks such as Linpack, and in terms of usability – scrolling smoothness and so forth).

EVO 4G owners, we have some great news for you today. According to the official Sprint press release that just came out, the Froyo update will be pushed out in waves to your devices starting August 3rd and continuing through the middle of the month.

Sprint will allow *any* EVO to receive the update without waiting for a notification by initiating the update request manually (Settings > System updates).

It's interesting to note that earlier today, Engadget spotted what looked like a slide from the Sprint's internal system, shining some light on the upcoming rollout process.
