Jelly Bean for our HTC EVO 4G LTE??

Recommended Posts

I just now had a "sprint zone" update pushed to my phone... Hopefully that's not what we're all waiting around for!

Hey i did message you saying my sisters evo lte had gotten an update. What sucks is hers was connecting to Lte and my evo wouldn't even hold LTE. It wouldn't hold even if I toggled airplane mode. I was busy so couldnt check her phones version or firmware as s4gru told me and she just left on vacation.

 

Make matters worse for me, the BBY mobile guy that sold me the phone was at my local best buy and offered me to try and exchange the evo at sprint if not go back and he'd switch me a new galaxy s3 lol...Being real though I rather everybody get the best out of sprint lte than me getting a free exchange.

 

It would have been a baseband update at least. If the version number didn't change in the about android section then it was no software or firmware update.

I would take him up on that offer. I'm not a big Samsung fan but the GS3 is a great phone. Sprint just switched my Evo for the GS3 and it is a slight upgrade.

 

I went in for another try the other day... guy was like a friggin idiot. He kept saying LTE wasn't being launched until next year anywhere. Umm.. go check the map on line. He comes back and says no that's the old 4G. He goes on to say that Sprint is testing 4G here to see how it works out but only testing phones can connect. I asked him where and he told me a few towers would cover the entire city since it used the old Nextel data band since they shut down the data for Nextel. Umm??? Soo...I picked up my phone and just walked as it felt like I was arguing with a fence post.

It is just as I figured, no update for the EVO Lte 4g. Oh well, we will get it eventually, probably right after the Samsung Slll gets Licorice or whatever the next big update is going to be called. :lol:

To be honest I really wasnt expecting jellybean for the Evo this quickly anyways. It wouldve been a pleasant suprise, It will be here eventually, just got to be patient and wait it out.

My wife received an update to her EVO this morning. But it does not appear to be Jelly Bean. She emailed it to me below:

I asked her to let me know if she got an update on her EVO a few days ago. This morning she told me there was an update that appeared. She said she accepted it, and it rebooted. I asked her to send me screenshots of the menu. I won't be able to go check anything until I get home.

This is what I have on my Evo from the last update awhile back. The only difference is the PRL. Mine is 24006.

Blur, I'm not sure how you do it. I think this is the second time you have told a story like that and a visit to the Sprint store..

Your wife is awesome. I can't get my girlfriend to tell me if her phone is in 3G or 1X, she does does this :unsure:

Can you see why I HATE to go to the stores here? I have no idea where they find these people but they are always different people anytime I go.

At this point I just want my LTE connection problems fixed. JB can be pushed out later.

If the above update fixes the connection issues I'll be a happy camper

Well if it's bug fixes and an LTE fix I'll still take it no matter what Android flavor.

I received a sprint zone update this morning. I bet that is what she received. I show the new version number being 4.3.18.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was jelly bean anyway, I guess only time will tell.

I think you're right. I asked her to notify me if her phone gets an update. I didn't specify or explain any type. :lol:

Would that cause the phone to reboot though?

Can you imagine the number of pissed off people if this update is NOT JB?.....

 

If its NOT JB then I can't see what issue other than LTE connection fix would prompt them to spend time on a MR OTA... Especially with JB update around the corner.

Even looked at Htcs twitter and they have confirmed they don't know about a jellybean update but they also confirmed they are working out the connectivity issues.

      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"
