Remember how the leaked "HTC Kingdom" pictures looked a heck of a lot like the EVO 3D we got our hands all over at CTIA? There's good reason for that, it appears, as a leaked Kingdom ROM has arrived via our favorite Chinese ROM dumping ground, and it's clearly labeled as being for for Sprint.

So the Kingdom is the EVO 3D. Cool. Now if only we knew more about the release date, but at least we can get our pre-order on.

Source: 911HTC

Update: So it's not the EVO 3D, eh? How about that.

That pic is not the 3d, no circles around the buttons and no camera button on the side

Never said it was. The picture above is the Kingdom. It's also missing a Sprint logo. :p

I was told here by an HTC Rep in Canada that we would be getting the EVO 3D, but it would not be called "Evo", cause you hear "Evo" you think Sprint. Calling it the Kingdom for other markets makes sense.

deltatko says:

Sorry Phil, but I think the "Rider" and "Kingdom" pictures got switched. The "Rider" looks nearly identical to the 3D (other than the red plastic) with the circles around the icons and the camera button. The "Kingdom" pic has no circles around the icons and no camera button. I'm not saying you switched them, because you just reported what 911 had, but I think they messed up the photos and the names.

Went to the source site. Is this flashable?

igeekman says:

Flash and then let me know

RC46 says:

This leaked ROM could end up being very important if the release version has locked boot loaders. Thats assuming the leaked version does not already have the boot loader locked.

igeekman says:

What would happen if I flashed this to my Evo 4G?

Noble.Four says:

Best case scenario, it just wouldn't boot.

Don't try it.

Go Android! says:

It wouldn't work at all. But what this means is we could get this ported to the Evo even before the Evo 3D comes out.

svargas05 says:

I really think this may be the follow up to the Evo Shift 4G....

I tried flashing this on my evo 4g just went back to recovery screen after trying to install, after just nadroid my back up to one of my roms had previously no harm done just wont install.

Keep an eye on this thread over on XDA. Virus is working on a port for the EVO and he says we will have it "very soon".
