The wizards at xda-developers have woven their magic once again and solved the woes of those EVO 4G owners who upgraded their handsets to HTC's leaked 3.26.651.3 version of Froyo last Friday.

Problem

If you remember, shortly after the .3 leak was posted, HTC announced that it wasn't the final Froyo release. Indeed, a few days later, on Monday, the world saw a new, this time official, OTA with the version number ending in .6.

Another Point For The Dev Community: Official HTC EVO 4G Froyo Build Rooted

Be forewarned, though – the update may not play nice with the previous (non-final) update that was released.

Full instructions:

You might be able to just flash this over the leaked ota, but I advise doing a full wipe before flashing just to be safe.

The official German O2 Twitter account posted a tweet this weekend that the Motorola Milestone (better known as the Verizon Droid to us Yanks) will be getting Android 2.2 in mid-late September of this year.

Fresh Evo 3.0 Bringing FroYo To HTC EVO 4G, Based On Official HTC OTA Update

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).
