HTC EVO 4G Users: Don't Use the Update.zip Floating Around, Wait for the Official Update!
      #38072 - 07/31/10 12:28 AM

HTC has gotten the word out for HTC EVO 4G users, that any update.zip floating around for EVO are not final and may cause problems. Official updates are coming OTA next week!

Earlier, Sprint announced it will begin rolling out the Android 2.2 Froyo update to its HTC EVO 4G customers starting Aug. 1. So again wait for the official OTA update push, people!!



If you are still wondering what's in Android 2.2 update, here is more info:

Sprint will be the first wireless carrier to bring the latest version of Android to its customers. The Android 2.2 software release provides a significant number of feature enhancements, including:

* Voice Dialing Over Bluetooth.
* Application Storage on External Memory, giving users more storage room for all their apps.
* Camera 4-way rotation allows the camera icons to rotate with the camera.
* Improved Browser Performance including a faster JavaScript engine and Flash 10x Support improving the user?s ability to view videos and available content associated with web pages.

Easy Downloading

Sprint will begin sending update notifications to users in waves beginning Tuesday, Aug. 3 and the upgrade should be available for all HTC EVO 4G users by the middle of August.

The notification will let the users know that the update is available and it will provide the simple two-step over-the-air download process.

1. Users will receive a notification that Android 2.2 is available for download.
2. Once the user has downloaded the update, they will be prompted to install the update. The user will be notified that their device will be disabled during the installation process. The phone will be ready to use once the process completes.
