Nice to hear about your work, I was a big MIUI fan on the Evo4G, this may convince me to unlock (only get 4G in a few specific places anyway).

Awesome. Hope you don't mind that I moved your thread to the rooted sub-forum. I left a re-direct, so that people can still click on the thread to get here.
