I once served in the USMC from 02'-08' I purchased the G1 in 2008 and then watched the Android OS turn the mobile world upside down. I then got the Nexus One followed by the Samsung Vibrant. I also have the HD2 running Shubcraft CM6. I've been following the Android community for a while now and couldn't be happier doing anything else. "Go Green, get -C}[\][D[R[-][][D-"

    Guilty. Yeah, this one did the trick. No muss, no fuss. I was wary about Sense UI on EVO at first as I really like it, but heard folks saying it would delay release of Froyo to HTC phones. Here we are, with EVO being the first carrier-based phone with it. This bodes well for Gingerbread before the end of the year.

    One question I had – did this increase the resolution of the screen, or am I imagining things. I swear the screen looks sharper.
