28 February 2011 No Comment

The HTC Shift Evo 4G is an Android 2.2 smart phone capable of 4G Internet connections. Better yet, the Shift Evo is able to be act as a wireless/wired modem with its tethering software. In order to tether the HTC Shift Evo, you must first root the phone in order to install your own ROM. Once your phone is rooted, you just have to install an Android Wi-Fi tethering application that will transform the phone into a mobile, Wi-Fi hotspot. The HTC Shift Evo can also act as a wired modem using the USB or serial port.

While this may seem like a dangerous process, many people have rooted this phone without any problem. Perhaps the worst thing that could happen in this process is simply just not connecting. Basically rooting the phone requires that you connect the Shift Evo to a PC computer to copy a file to directory of the phone’s SD card. Then you reboot the HTC shift Evo 4G to begin the rooting process. An easy guide for rooting your phone is available at this URL: <http://htcevohacks.com/htc-evo-hacks/how-to-root-your-htc-evo-4g/>.

Fortunately, there are many free 3G and 4G Wi-Fi tethering apps on the Internet. Simply search for “Android Wi-Fi tether” on Google and go to the Android Wi-Fi Tether Project.

Select Google Nexus One and download the app. Once the app is on your phone, use the Package Installer to install the app. After the app is installed, you can start the program to begin tethering on the Sprint 3G or 4G network for free. Note that since this is a free app, there may be limited support available. Google Nexus One is updated frequently and the development team does seem committed to working out any bugs in the software.

In addition to acting as a Wi-Fi hotspot, the HTC Shift Evo 4G also has such features like a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and a 5-megapixel camera capable of taking 720p HD video. Android 2.2 runs on a high performance Snapdragon processor but the screen is a little small compared to other 4G phones measuring only 3.6 inches. The HTC Friend Stream feature allows you to integrate your Facebook and Twitter feeds into a single news stream.
