EVO 4G LTE Android Jelly Bean Update 3.15.651.16

I’m excited mainly for offline voice typing and Google Now! Google Now is such a huge feature and I don’t know why more carriers and Google don’t advertise it more often? It blows away Siri but no one even knows what it is. I showed it to a friend of mine who has a GS3 and they didn’t even know they had it! They couldn’t believe how cool it was. I do hope they fixed some of the other bugs but it looks like they fixed some (contacts) according to the doc. I really hope this isn't fake as I would want to do harm to that person, j/k lol. Have a great night boys and hopefully tomorrow we'll be Jellin! Jellin wit Jelly Bean baby! I remember others saying don't bash HTC as they are probably readying 4.2 instead and I told them no chance. I doubt we'll ever see 4.2 on our EVO LTE but if we do maybe around the time the next EVO iteration is being released?

I think the Evo will get it just a question of when. ..

I don't see what all the hoopla of Google Now is, I toyed around with it and took it off. Maybe its the stigma of the idiots talking to their phone on the idumb commercials making dinner that has tainted my judgement.

 

For me it's kinda cool to just have info I didn't have to ask for..

The thing about Google Now is that instead of you going to your device when you want info, Google Now will bring the info to you. Examples like sports scores, etc., are abundant.

 

One other example is in my Calendar. If I has a location in an appointment, not only would it remind me of it, but it would tell me when I would have to leave to make it on time, accounting for traffic, and offered to navigate (this was on CM10 on my LTEvo)

 

I still have a hard time talking to my phone though. feel like a tool if i do it. especially if i have to repeat my request. . . in public. . .

Had Google Now on my old rooted Evo 3D. Actually got pretty annoyed with it after awhile. Sometimes I'd search for different menus of restaurants and then I'd get directions to those restaurants for the next hour or so. It is a cool concept though.

The point with Google Now is you don't have to ask, it already knows. I very rarely talk to my phone. The info is just there.

 

Sent from a phone using an application. That's pretty cool.

contacts issue fix: YES.

LTE scanning improvement: A MUST

Google Now: Mehh... OK

JB smoothness: (it is smooth now with ICS), so don't know how much better it will get.

 

Anyways, any improvements are always welcomed.

(Unless we end up with a new round of problems based on the update)... !!!!! <_<

You might give Google Now a try on a JB device if you haven't already. I know it was kind of patched together to get it to work on ICS and I had problems with it all the time. I've used it a couple of times on my Dad's GS3 and it worked perfectly.

Any update that doesnt causes problems is a good one in my book.

 

PS. Does anybody know if I update via OTA will I lose my unlock/rooted privs?

 

I would not take the OTA. Just wait for your favorite dev to update and then update the radio and such via the bootloader (I'm assuming you are S-OFF).

Sorry, no idea what S-OFF means. I just unlocked the device thru HTC unlock site and rooted thru another computer one-click program. I know I have superuser access and dont want to lose it because of the setting changes I have made to my device.

    • Update just showed up for both of my phones. So far I don't notice any difference, LTE TA is still reporting as 0, I was hoping the new routine might fix that. I sent a diag report from both phones in case you need any of that info. I'll let you know in a day or so if its crashing as frequently or not. 
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta release is rolling out now, and should become available on Google Play shortly! Some notable changes: New "swipe to refresh" -- flick down on the main screen, and the data will "refresh" -- I put this in quotes because it will *not* force the modem to be polled (that's unfortunately not possible), but it will 'wake up' the app and display the latest information if for some reason your screen did not automatically update. I am still working on improving this. New cell identification methods for Android 12+ devices -- new routines are available in Android 12 and this is my first attempt at implementing them. I have not seen any changes positive or negative on my Pixel 6, but hopefully someone sees improvements. I will continue exploring these methods and adding new features as I get them working. Location service auto-restart -- if your location has not changed in 10 minutes, the background location service should restart itself. This is a work in progress that I intend to optimize during beta testing. Missing/invalid TAC values included in web uploads -- this will need some testing, because I can't replicate it myself. The option to log cells with missing TAC must be enabled for this to have an impact. Feedback welcome as always!
    • Another converted keep site: Sprint eNB 9436 -> T-Mobile eNB 895067 (40.60777246698788,-74.16199692361377) Looks like they're using the FFVV-65A-R2-V1 here, as well!   Edit: Also, I know this technically isn't NYC, but here's a Jersey City conversion. Not 100% sure on either eNB. Sprint eNB 105863 -> T-Mobile eNB 876452 (40.72265196811989,-74.08804945021805)
    • More confirmations incoming! T-Mobile eNB 880561 (40.74176835140717, -73.88364207139453)   Sprint eNB 6191 / T-Mobile eNB 880065 (40.71339007010928, -73.85695387371624) Confirmed this site but was unable to get a photo because the antennas are set back from the edge of the building. I could see them from super far away but there wasn't a good area for me to pull over and snap a pic.   Sprint eNB 6189 / T-Mobile eNB 877995 (40.71183894845567, -73.83529788316665)   Sprint eNB 253741 / T-Mobile eNB 875537/875538 (40.70170960850086,-73.83302208208359)   Sprint eNB 79912 / T-Mobile eNB 875989 (40.86349197342981, -73.923456682535) — — — — — T-Mobile eNB 880536 in the Bronx isn't a Sprint conversion but rather, T-Mobile changed the eNB when they upgraded the site. The nearest Sprint site at 40.8150405321864, -73.93010756429787 still has all of its antennas up and is literally within spitting distance of two other T-Mobile sites in an area that's very industrial as opposed to residential or commercial so a keep site isn't particularly necessary. You can see on Cellmapper that the old eNB stopped broadcasting about two days after the new eNB went live.  — — — — — Also wanted to add that I spotted AT&T C-band antennas quite a bit in both Queens and the Bronx. I would expect a summer C-band launch announcement from them because they're moving FAST. At least in my area, it seem like they're upgrading at a faster pace than Verizon is. Some more pics: AT&T eNB 116408 / T-Mobile eNB 42887 in Woodhaven. This one is interesting because T-Mobile upgraded this site but in the process didn't put any Ericsson n41 antennas. There are just two of the RFS antennas that we normally get.   AT&T eNB 112047, bad pic but the arrows on the billboard are pointing right at the C-band antenna lol   — — — — — Last edit I promise: I noticed T-Mobile submit a permit to convert the keep site I found in Staten Island (Sprint eNB 75141). I 100% guessed it's location since I connected to it literally 4.5 miles across the water while inside a building. Glad to see I was right!
    • Support for the -1 TAC is good to go now, so I'm ready whenever you are!
