Jelly Bean for our HTC EVO 4G LTE??

Recommended Posts

I think that they are waiting on AT&T. The flagship phone has to get it first. Remember, for the Sense 4.1 update it came out shortly after AT&T's did. Since the One X+ just came out, I think AT&T will start pushing out JB soon. And then the EVO.

That would be a pretty bogus reason IMO. The One X is only available on AT&T and Most would consider the EVOLTE the better phone. If the update is ready then they should just release it.

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.

Yep, can't wait to hear all the complaints and comments. It will make for great entertainment.

Strange. I just checked for an update and it forced me to connect to wifi. So I did, but nothing...it never did that before.

That's odd.

Would that cause the phone to reboot though?

 

I don't remember if it rebooted or not but it did look a little similar to update install. I almost did a screen shot but I was driving and did not think it was wise.

Looking more like a hoax. No update yet.

This has been confirmed by Sprint so it is not a hoax... ...but the date it will be released is the problem. Working with stuff like this you can enter into a oh no that problem needs to be fixed before we release it phase. I have seen one hour before a release of an update to a software program and it go back to the drawing board and take almost another month.

Hey, kckid the pic on page 4 is what the reply was to. Check it out. Only problem i see is there seems to be a que to who will get the update i think it might be due to the size of the update. My guess is it could be over 200mb but time will tell...

Samsung has made a lot of mistakes with previous devices but they really kicked up a notch with the gs2 and now the gs3/note2. As much as I love htc and still prefer the evo(just barely), I don't see how much longer htc can last in this game. I wouldn't be surprised if samsung eventually bought htc out at some point.

If they do, I hope they make some build quality improvements instead of just using plastic.

This really pains me to say it BUT my mother just got a GS3 and I played with it for awhile and i was impressed.

I've had the GS3 for about a month now, and still prefer the EVO. It's a nice phone that for sure, but I'll take Sense and the EVO's camera any day over Touchwiz, and am not one for rooting, so yeah.

Samsungs "plastic feel" build quality probably isn't going any where any time soon but I am more concerned about the screen quality since I hate amoled screens. If the galaxy s4 comes out with an slcd 3 screen then it will make my purchase a lot more tolerable.

How many people compare the "build quality" but slap an otterbox defender or similar case on it anyway?

My evo lte feels awesome when I take it out of my otterbox commuter once a month! Lol

 

In my experience plastic seems to take more punishment then aluminum. Plastic seems to absorb a lot more energy without getting permanent damage. Drop the evo lte and it will scratch the paint or get a major dent. I still love the evo though.

My gs3 came by ups on monday. Went to put the battery in and activate it. Felt like i was going to snap it in half pulling off the battery cover. Then I played with it for about and hour and didnt like how flimsy it felt in my hand. So I jumped in the car and went and picked up a defender. Much better feel now.

 

Just doesn't feel anywhere near as tough naked as my og evo did

The package weighs in at 364.54MB, um that is pretty large. Seems like people might need to wipe some stuff off the phone to install...

      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"

    • If I had to guess, they'll deploy just enough to meet their federally mandated requirements (70% of the US population within ~3 years), based on where the concentration of their Boost Mobile customer usage is. They've got a sweetheart roaming/MVNO agreement with T-Mobile for seven years so there will be a ton of places it won't make sense to build out. They'll deploy with 600 MHz in those areas first, since that'll be the quickest way to satisfy the buildout requirements...plus 700 downlink. AWS deployments will probably start with the same cell sites, but i expect there'll be AWS-only sites in cities as that's one fewer set of radios to set up and I'm convinced Dish will build this network as cheaply as they possibly can.
    • The main scenario where I envision NR CA being useful is edge of cell scenarios, where N71 can be used for PCC and N41 as SCC. You gain the better and more stable uplink from low band, extending the range of N41. There are a lot of places now where B41 uplink is basically failing, but can still be used for download if uplink was on another band. The wider carrier widths of N41 width helps, plus NR is supposed to be better with weak signal uploads than LTE I believe, but it would still be nice to have and see N71+N41. It would also likely take load off of N71. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
    • The nice thing about T-Mo's 5G network though is that there shouldn't be a burning need to aggregate NR, with the exception of areas where their 2.5 holdings are chopped up into smaller channels due to licensing weirdness (which to my knowledge is a relatively small chunk of territory). Since NR channels can be 40/60 MHz, you just plop one of those channels down in 2.5 and have a significant amount of capacity to play with, while n71 is left for folks who aren't close enough to the cell for n41, similar to how T-Mobile prioritizes B71 right now. If T-Mobile wants to fill in more speed in areas with contiguity issues, they can add B41 channels (which they're already doing in some areas). B41 is less efficient of course, but virtually every Sprint phone can use it, as well as plenty of T-Mobile phones, so they can push more users to T-Mobile primary without making (more of) a hash of their network. At some point of course, they'll want more capacity in areas where they don't have enough contiguous spectrum to just make a bigger NR carrier, but the X60 will have dropped by then...sounds like it could actually wind up in the iPhone 12 series.
    • For a bit there, the S20 series were the only current-gen-5G capable phones on Sprint, so the LG and now OnePlus variants came in late enough in the game that you can safely assume their numbers were <100k combined. Remember that Sprint has been pushing the S20 series *hard* with discounts, so they're selling like hotcakes (I'm sure they're above 500k for the entire line at this point). As for the folks getting the first-gen 5G phones, 75K total is actually pretty decent for a network that was only lit in a few markets, with no timeline for elsewhere. I'm curious about what Verizon's numbers are at this point. Their current mmWave network almost certainly covers less territory than Sprint's 41+41 network did, and they aren't discounting their phones any because they don't have a burning need to push folks to the new network like Sprint does. Going to guess that, despite being a larger carrier, they still haven't cracked 500k 5G phone sales. Wouldn't be surprised if AT&T hasn't either.
    • NR right now is operating in a mode called non standalone (NSA). LTE has to be the anchor band (primary carrier) and NR is aggregated. It uses the LTE core. For voice calls, it actually drops the NR carrier. Honestly I'm not sure what about those phones prevents them from being able to use B2 or B66 as an anchor other than software/certifications. I'm not aware of any technical limitation of the modem that would prevent it Supposedly standalone (SA) NR is coming by the end of the year. This will use NR as the primary carrier, and use the NR core (and enable VoNR). I think it can still aggregate LTE carriers as secondary, but no current modems support aggregating multiple NR carriers. For that we have to wait for the x60. I guess technically once SA NR comes, these older phones would be able to use it. The issue would be whether or not they're actually capable of SA, and if they can do VoNR with software updates. And I guess also whether or not they'd get those software updates if so. Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
