The smaller brother of the EVO crew, HTC EVO Shift 4G, has just received its first permaroot. This is thanks to the crew over at XDA Developers Forums, in particular bcnice20 and some dev friends of his or hers (Joeykrim, Toastcfh, scotty2, Guhl, preludedrew, and riggsandroid and Cosine83.) This means that you'll be able to go wild and crazy with your device, hacking it all to pieces and putting it back together again as you see fit.
The HTC EVO Shift 4G finally is available to the masses and you’re probably wondering if it’s worth the upgrade. The phone seems to be marketed as a high-end entry-level device, and from our time with the device over the last week or so we’re ready to give it the full Android Community review.
The EVO SHIFT 4G was apparently purchased at both Best Buy and Sam's Club earlier today. Those who pre-ordered the device should be getting theirs very soon.
Walmart has just prematurely listed the HTC EVO Shift 4G on their site before its unveiling at CES 2011 this week. The highly publicized device will be available on Sprint and will be ready to utilize their "ultra-fast" 4G network.
