First of I would like to say that none of these hacks and files are my own work. This stuff was done by all the amazing phone developers over at XDA Developers. I am am simply writing a few posts on rooting the HTC Evo since most of the information was all spread out over the forums and I had a hard time gathering it all together in a organized manner.

NOTE: Please make sure you have completed parts 1,2 & 3 of this tutorial series before attempting this part.

Testing your Local Area Network (LAN) speeds on a regular basis is a good idea to make sure you don’t have any major issues that have crept into the network. I would recommend a couple different free tools to use to accurately test every machine on your network. Below will be a brief explanation of each of the solutions followed with instructions and possible issues you might run into.

Windows clients and servers can be tested using Totusoft’s LAN Speed Test which could also be used to test Window’s clients that have network shares to Linux servers. The application is extremelly simple but will provide a nice basic overview of the speeds your LAN is capable of. The application writes a file to any network share, clears the file cache, and then reads the file back to make sure its not reading the file from cache instead of writing it over the network.

When doing quality testing on websites it is beneficial to not only have all of the latest major browsers for testing (including Internet Explorer, Safari, Mozilla FireFox, Opera, and Google Chrome), but also to have older versions of some browsers installed especially older versions of Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is notorious for making huge changes to the way it handles CSS and other design elements between versions. Just because a web site looks great in IE7 does not mean it will display correctly in IE6, IE5, etc.

In my day to day work, I need to have access to multiple operating systems in order to test various things.  Unfortunatly running multiple desktops gets warm and traveling with multiple laptops gets cumbersome.  I serached out and tried various virtualization technologies that would address my problems.  In the end, after testing VMWare, various Xen ( Xen was purchased by Citrix ) incarnations, I finally settled on VirtualBox. Virtualbox was created and sold by Innotek. Sun eventually bought innotek in February of this year.  VirtualBox allows you to install the software on a base system (called the “host”) and within the software you create multiple virtual computers with different operating systems (called “guests”).

Frequently it is convenient, when testing and debugging (or even just when browsing normally), to purge all of the cookies for a particular site. Although it is possible to do so through FireFox’s cookie manager (accessible through Preferences, Privacy, “Show Cookies”), it is much easier and quicker to use the aptly named [Remove Cookies for Site][] addon. Simply put, it adds a context menu option and optionally a toolbar button to clean off all of the cookies for the site currently being viewed.
