EVO 4G users, rejoice! As of a few minutes ago, you can enjoy unlimited free WiFi/Bluetooth tethering using the Wireless Tether for Root users (or simply android-wifi-tether) app.
The app's main committer Harald Mue, who doesn't even have the EVO in his possession, together with a community contributor Andrew Robinson (who does have one) have figured out what was going wrong with the EVO compared to other phones and together collaborated on a fix all within 2 days of finding the problem
Hey, wait a minute, wasn't the EVO released the same 2 days ago? Community dedication never ceases to amaze me.

Yesterday, we reported that the EVO 4G was rooted, right in time for the launch day. The root method, however, required a full wipe and was quite tedious.
The same hour the root instructions were released, a new root method, called unrevoked, was promised and scheduled to come out by midnight. However, Sprint's OTA update fixing the SD card issue also patched up the vulnerability that both root methods used.
Fear not though, unrevoked was still released a few hours ago and works for both pre-OTA and post-OTA EVOs and only pre-OTA Heroes.

Earlier this week I've covered EVO 4G's photo (8MP) and HD video taking (720p) capabilities with beautiful shots and videos of Paris.
I could leave the subject alone, but you see, after Paris, I went to the south of France - Nice, Monaco, Monte Carlo, and other beautiful towns. I then fell in love with Monte Carlo and shot some videos and more photos of it with the EVO, which I can't not share with you, right on EVO's launch day.
Since I've already reviewed and discussed the camera and camcorder features and flaws in the previous 2 posts linked above, I'm not going to include them here - just enjoy the EVO and the beautiful scenery.

The EVO 4G, which is coming out in only 2 days on June 4th, comes with a pretty decent 8MP camera. One of the best things about the camera is that it in turn comes with a shockingly bright for a cell phone dual LED flash. Here it is:
Wouldn't it be perfect if you could use these LEDs on demand, turning the EVO into a bright flashlight? You can do that with some other phones, and EVO's little sister HTC HD2, which has essentially the same body but runs WinMo, even includes a native app to do so.
