Jelly Bean for our HTC EVO 4G LTE??

Recommended Posts

The package weighs in at 364.54MB' date=' um that is pretty large. Seems like people might need to wipe some stuff off the phone to install...[/quote']

 

The JB update for the S3 came in at 270 mb range

I think the GS3 and the EVO LTE are remarkable pieces of hardware, but the GS3 seems to have fewer hardware issues and received the JB update first. Everything's all topsy turvy. I got the EVO because my OG EVO was always at the forefront and was essentially impeccable hardware, and the Samsung phones were rife with GPS and other problems that come with cheap plasticy phones.

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.

 

Love the Note2 feel. First phone that fits my hands. When typing my thumbs don't feel claustrophobic to each other.

 

No more HTC for me. I mapped a lot of 1x with that phone lately on sensorly. After the touch pro and tp2 fun with swapping those out for keyboard issues all the time I gave them another chance with the EVO LTE. Maybe in 5 years or so.. And I will definitely not be buying it on launch day, it will be a few months after.

How did you get it? Did you buy it outright or trade in your EVO LTE? Did you sell your EVO LTE or go to a store and request another phone due to the LTE issues on the EVO? Thanks

Sold some old tech I had and didn't need. Then used my other lines upgrade and donated the EVO to them.

There is another leak that says people got Jelly been for EVO before they pulled it. The date they say will be December 2nd. Ugh another few days, but that seems kinda early to since the One S does not have it unless i missed something.

That's not happening either, and no noone got the update at all before so dunno how that story got twisted through the grapevine...

It is speculation that the update got delayed as HTC and sprint wanted to modify some things.....

The leak say it was due to higher than exspected sales at black friday that the update was pulled. Sever load for activation would have given new customers a bad tast in their mouth. So they pulled it till the 2nd of December.

The other thing I heard is that they pulled the update because HTC/Sprint wanted to modify stability with Sense UI....

Only time will tell the story I guess....

I heard a rumor that the update is actually going to come but only at some future date. But you know how rumors are.

Is the date always in the future? I can believe that. ;)

I heard there was a rumor that there was a rumor that there was a memo that said there might be an upgrade to the rumor generator.

 

My general rule is to believe half of official memos and no rumors.

Well to hear something is better than nothing... I am sure there was a reason you brought up this page other than clicking on the check for update. I like shareing info with others. If the update does not come out on Dec 2nd I'll keep it to myself but this date just seems right to me and maybe i am just hopeful.

      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"

    • I can confirm that 15MHz PCS is live across all of northern Brooklyn at the very least. I went to Red Hook, Williamsburg, Park Slope, Sunset Park, and everywhere in between today and encountered 15MHz PCS everywhere.
    • So they have pdfs of their coverage, but the map still isn't updated.  They added a few more cities. They are now at 179 million people.  Expanded DSS.  https://www.att.com/5g/coverage-map/ https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/at-t-expands-5g-to-28-new-markets-continues-dss-deployment  
    • Wonder how they will move on their network.  If they deployed it like TMobile is deloying 600MHz, I'd put a line on them. 
    • I'm surprised TMobile is so inconsistent with bands deployed per site. Some sites have full on builds some are two or three bands and others host single bands. While Sprint might have been weak off the beaten path, they consistently deployed full builds on almost all macro sites in NYC.
    • A full deployment has never been T-Mobile's strategy, and that's why they've never been the best in Seattle. Despite having the best site density (by a lot), their network experience falls far short of AT&T, Sprint and even Verizon now, who I would have claimed was in last place a year ago.  The trend for the last 4 years has been that AT&T and Verizon never climb a tower without deploying every LTE technology available at that time. Even today, the same cannot be said for T-Mobile.  I would estimate that more than 35% of T-Mobile sites in Seattle are still midband only. And some are still B2-only whereas others are B4-only. That makes coverage/capacity inconsistent between sites and handovers at the edge of cell sloppy, to say the least. To really compete with the big two, they're going to have to rethink the way they're deploying their RAN and stop deploying the minimum needed to get by. Hopefully we see those changes going forward, because they definitely have the economies of scale necessary to do so now.
