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..

+1

 

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.

I can't imagine this update not fixing the 3G/LTE scan issues. Keep checking for the update; I'll post my results with it as soon I can test it out.

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)... !!!!! <_<

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?

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.

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.

You'll lose root if you download an official update.

 

Wait for someone to bake it into a ROM then.

      Hello all,

      I have been visiting S4GRU for quite some time, and one of the most common issues I see popping up is confusion from users--especially when they first get 4G LTE devices and/or LTE service--regarding their signal strengths. For some reason, the signal bars on many devices do not display what most users expect them to display. It seems strange that we have to enter special dialer codes just to see what our LTE signal is!

      With that in mind, I started creating an Android app from scratch. I had never created an app before, so it took a few months before it was ready for the public, but its time has come. Robert and a few others have been beta testing it for me since October, and I recently released it onto Google Play. Robert gave me the go-ahead to give it a mention here on S4GRU, so here goes..

      It's called SignalCheck, and it is available on Google Play here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Blue+Line+Computing
       
      The "Lite" version is free; the "Pro" version has a small one-time fee but includes a bunch of extras, including signal bars in the notification area, a widget, the ability to alert a user when they pick up an LTE or 800 SMR signal, one-button instant connection reset, the street address of the connected 1X site, and menu shortcuts to some screens that are usually only accessible with dialer codes. I intend to offer S4GRU Premier Sponsors special benefits in the near future, as soon as I figure out a feasible way to do that.

      This is the first app I have ever developed, so I'd appreciate any and all feedback, both positive and negative. I have been trying to educate myself as much as possible regarding cellular technologies, as I didn't know much before I started this project. My goal is to make this app as accurate and useful as possible for all the "nerds" on here.. myself included!

      I intend to continue squashing bugs as they are reported, and adding features as they are requested. As I learn more about Android programming and cellular technology, I'll improve things. Please let me know what you would like to see, and I'll do what I can.
       
      My "Beta Crew" helps test out the app before public updates are pushed out. Membership is by invite only but anyone is welcome to join in our discussions or get a sneak peek at what is going on (see thread here).

      Here are some screen shots from a previous version.. there have been tweaks since this release, but this is basically what you get:

      With the FCC and Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon have agreed to this new unlocking policy. How does this effect sprint phones such as the IPhone. I have heard that Sprint can unlock your phone but you can not take it to other carriers such as Verizon and the IPhone can only be used overseas.  (Correct me if I am wrong). I am glad that this has finally happened. But when it comes to Sprint how would this work?
