HTC releases, then pulls Android 2.2, aka Froyo, update for the HTC EVO 4G

My, it has been a busy Friday for HTC.  Earlier today, the company released an early build of the Froyo update for the HTC EVO 4G through a download link on HTC’s website.  However, HTC quickly killed the download link, apparently because this Froyo update was not final.

While HTC’s link to the Froyo update is now dead, you can still download the update from a number of mirrors online, like this one.  Again, update with this ROM at your own risk – it’s not final.

This update brings a number of new features, including the ability to use the EVO’s camera LED as a flashlight, the ability to use the LED flash with the video camera, Flash  10.1 support, and the ability to share applications.

If you don’t want to test the waters with this update, you can just wait until Tuesday, when the official Froyo update from HTC will go live.
