The paid version of FullHDMI For EVO 4G has been around on the Android Market for a while now, providing full HDMI mirroring for the rooted HTC EVO 4G without the need of custom kernels (except for mirroring at 720p and audio output switching). A recent update of the app eliminated the need for root access, making it much easier to set up compared to its free alternative, HDMwIn that requires root access as of this writing.
And now, a free version of the app is available on the Market. That’s right, HTC EVO 4G users without root access on their devices can now enjoy full HDMI mirroring for free. There is a catch though, and not a small one – the free version does not allow mirroring in landscape view.
The app supports both AOSP and Sense based kernels. HTC Gallery, however, still remains unsupported. As mention earlier, mirroring at 720p (1280×720 display resolution) and Audio control (switching between audio output through the phone and the micro HDMI port) still requires a custom kernel, for which you’ll need root access.
Therefore, FullHDMI version is more suited for EVO 4G owners without root access who aren’t looking for advanced functionality. If you already have or plan to get root access on your EVO 4G, you might as well try out HDMwIn. It’s free and, unlike the free version of FullHDMI, allows mirroring in landscape orientation.

Update: Unfortunately, FullHDMI For EVO 4G Free is no longer available in the Google Play Store, which means that users with unrooted HTC EVO 4G are now out of luck. However, if your device is rooted, then you might be interested in taking a look at our detailed coverage of HDMwIn (free) for rooted HTC EVO 4G.
