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.

Nexus One users had their taste of Froyo already (check out what Froyo is all about for more info) and now Motorola Droid owners can get a piece of the pie too, courtesy of My Droid World!
Unfortunately, the update comes at a price, as there’s no Wi-Fi support in the current build. The reason for this is because the original kernel has been replaced to protect the identity of the source. However, if that’s a price you’re willing to pay, head over to the source link and try out Froyo for yourself!
The update itself is a Nandroid image (have a look at our Nandroid backup/recovery guide here), which means you need to have an already rooted Droid, with recovery flashed.

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.
