Jelly Bean for our HTC EVO 4G LTE??

Recommended Posts

I think the big thing that facilitated the flip flop in updates between the 2 companies is related to who was/is working on a Nexus device at the time. When HTC was rocking out the updates they were just finishing up work on the Nexus One. They had access to the code long before any other OEM. Samsung has worked on the last 2 Nexus phones and we have seen the speed of updates increase because of it. Look how fast Asus got updates to their tablets rolled out. Think working on the Nexus 7 had anything to do with that? Samsung is posting updates to all of the SG3 phones currently. Think having access to the code while working on the Nexus 10 has anything to do with that? Just my theory on the role reversal of the 2 companies regarding OS updates.

I think the JB update for the evo is arriving sooner than we all think. I would even venture to say within the next two weeks, this of course helps me sleep better at night so thats what I will keep telling myself in the mean time. Hopefully the lte issue will get fixed right along with the JB update.

Don't know if this is true or not, but there has been speculation that Jelly Bean is comming soon.

However, the screenshots shown has conflicting information.

Anybody knows if update 3.15.651.11 is comming and what it consists of???

Jelly needs 512 in ram. So the evo og should be out of this category.

If this does come out tomorrow then it looks like my prediction from a few weeks ago nailed it. Interesting, very interesting.

On that press release it doesn't say. What is misleading is you see the jelly bean behind the Evo. I think it's just the normal update :angry:

Looking at the first picture on the top it mentions the update firmware number and also jelly bean 4.1.1 operating system...

...I guess we will all be waiting to see what happens tomorrow. But if we get JB, I am a happy camper!. (well, any updates are always welcomed)...

Well I did have a little help from someone I was corresponding with but I am not the type of person to post hearsay because that always causes a thread to head south quickly not to mention that I am very sceptical by nature and take everything with a grain of salt, but if it does come out tomorrow then this person will be 2-0 so far.

I have been it contact with HTC tech support via e-mail over the last couple of days regarding LTE connection issues.

The last e-mail I got was last night and she told me that the next update would include a fix for the LTE connection issues.

She told me the update would be very soon but did not specify when.

I was considering posting that info last night but decided not to, because the thread on connection issues got heated and was temporarilly closed by Mods.

So I hope all this is true and we will all be happy campers tomorrow.

Yes. Also, the update states (Sprint Connections Optimizer), so maybe it will have something to do with improved LTE scanning, etc..

If all of this indeed turns out to be the case, I will be in the nearest Sprint store before you can spell LTE. I've been sitting on an upgrade for quite awhile, waiting it out to make sure there is a fix available before being locked into a two year obligation with a faulty device.

 

However, during this wait the Optimus G has caught my eye. I know the Lg is quad core, 2gb ram, zero gap, and a few more goodies, but I do love me some HTC. Also, if the above update rumors are true, the evo will now be on Jelly Bean and the Lg waiting still. We know their history, but Lg could turn it around, ala Samsung. With the Nexus program and the Optimus G, Lg has the potential to break into the Android big boy ranks (Samsung, Motorola, HTC) maybe even take HTC's spot.

 

So bottom line crew, what would you do, take a chance on a Jelly Bean packing rejuvinated Evo 4g lte, an unproven ICS spec'd out LGOG beast, or wait it out again on a potential Q1 2013 4th generation Evo? How say ye?

Well, It's hard for me to tell you which phone to go with. I do not have experience with LG. I had the OG EVO and I loved it (granted that I never saw Wimax), but in any case, I thought it was a good phone. Then when the EVO 4G LTE came out, I was at the Sprint store the same day it came out...!!!.. And since that day, I love it. I know that the phone has it's hickups here and there, but for me it is a very solid performer. I am speculating that the EVO will improve it's performance significantly with JB on board as it has been seen in the One X that was resently updated to JB. IF you like the HTC Sense interface, (which I became used to), then HTC is your answer....

...as for Q1 2013, we will probably see faster, better resolution cameras, etc etc etc... it's just the nature of technology. You get your latest phone today, next week is not so latest anymore....

I just received another e-mail from HTC suggesting that I manually check for software updates.

I did check but nothing available right now.

 

My question is... are they hinting that an update will be available soon??

Maybe.. its tomorrow

      My Evo LTE does not get 3G without having the upper back cover of the phone off.   How does that work?
    • By Terrell352
      One of my two contracts are about to end November 6 and the other in May. I have three options and am having a really hard time deciding on the best decision so I decided to ask my S4GRU brethren for advice. Option 1 is to just keep my EVO 4G LTE until next year when all  of the new April-June phones arrive but I don't like this option because the terrible LTE reception and the fact that Sprints LTE roll out is going a little slow for my tastes. Option 2 would be "if" the Nexus 5 has Tri-band LTE I could sell my Evo for 150 if I'm lucky and pony up the rest of the money while not having to renew my contracts so if I get tired of waiting for Sprints network to come to life I can jump ship to T-mobiles pre paid $70 plan and test there network to see if its better than Sprint's network all while not taking a financial hit or I can keep the Nexus 5 as my tri band Sprint device until next years phones come out and keep both phones. Option 3 is if I get the G2 on best buy pre order for $100 with the $50 gift card which I will use to buy the quick case. I will also get the benefit of getting to keep my Evo LTE so another 2 phone benefit option is nice. Any suggestions

      Today PRL 51095 was pushed to iPhone 5 on Sprint. Anyone with a LTE world phone also get the same PRL file?
       
      Not sure what is different yet. If I knew how to extract the PRL from my phone I would gladly send the file to digiblur for analysis.

      Here is a list of what the author says are bugs in Jelly Bean on the EVO LTE.
       
      "most of the issues have been Sprint’s."
       
      "There are rumors coming up from the stores than an update is coming soon to fix many of the bugs, but as far as I know there’s no official timeframe on that and that leaves many non-root users out for weeks with buggy equipment"
