    The EVO ROM was just leaked:

    Shipping HTC EVO 4G ROM released into the wild -- Engadget

    So, I downloaded the ROM, extracted it and pulled out the YouTube.apk. Installed it on my Incredible and now I have the HD icon in the bottom right corner :D It looks awesome. Works over WiFi and haven't tried 3G yet, I get crappy signal at home.

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Thanks. How did you get into it? I might be having trouble because I am on a mac. .exe is a no go.

    From what I can tell, it's the exact same app except for the fact that it streams in HQ by default, over WiFi at least.

    Its BIZARRE to me that 35 people have downloaded this apk and only one other person has thanked the OP for it......

    So when you all installed this did you chose update? I did and it worked flawlessly. Even the widget after a restart.

    pardonmyfreedom: this may be a long shot, but can the camera and video recording app be pulled to try to get 720p recording?

    I'm wondering this too. I was able to extract the ROM .exe file using uniextract, but can't seem to get the .cab files to extract. Probably the wrong forum, but does anyone know?

    Hey...can you extract the WiFi tethering app? I know everyone is saying it will probably require root...but it couldn't hurt to try it on the incredible could it :)

    I extracted the system.img file using an open-source utility that Google wrote. It's called unyaffs. There's a Windows binary floating around. I did a search for unyaffs.exe and found a download link. Ran it in the command line: unyaffs system.img and it extracted to the current folder.

    As far as other apps, I tried quite a few including Camera, Qik, NewsReader and the WiFi Tethering. All of them failed when I tried to install, however.

    Thanks for lookin' out GmB. :D

    So instead of manually choosing HQ on the Incredible, this one just automatically does it?
