The HTC EVO 4G may be getting an official update to Android 2.3 before the end of June, but if you absolutely, positively cannot wait, an official version of Gingerbread for the EVO has just leaked out. After downloading and installing the ROM, you'll find Android 2.3.3 loaded up and ready to go, and best of all is that this build has already been rooted and deodexed for your pleasure. So far the build seems to be working well for most, so if you feel like giving the ROM a go and feel comfortable with loading this leaked build up on your precious EVO, you can find everything you need right here.

Unfortunately, there's been no word on when we can expect Sprint and HTC to push the EVO's official Gingerbread update out except that it'll be during Q2, but I'd be willing to bet that we'll see it sooner rather than later. If any of you brave souls out there decide to install this leaked version of 2.3 up on your handset, be sure to let us know how it's working out for you!
