New update for Evo 4G LTE

OK. just finished the update:

1) Prox sensor works good (didn't really had any issues with this)

 

2) I now notice that when you go to apps, the amount of app storage available is incorrect. It says way more than what it actually is. I hope I don't run into a (low storage) situation and I can't install apps anymore....

Under storage, app storage states apps: 406MB. other: 4.05GB. I don't know what this "other" is...

 

However, when you go to phone storage (internal storage), this has been corrected (whereas before it would show up as unavailable).

NOTE: When you check for device storage through the sprint zone app, everything shows up correctly....

 

3) Navigation crashes... I did not have the opportunity to test this... and won't until I get out of work today. But if anybody out there can report back, that would be great.

 

4) When I put the phone in vibrate profile, I still don't get a vibrate alert when I get a text message (still not fixed)....This was working before JB update, but it is not my top priority.

 

these are what I noticed so far.....

OK... I just noticed what is happening.. .For #2 above, the scaling is incorrect. (it says 4.xx GB out of 6.xx GB), which leaves me with about 1.6xx GB of space vailable for apps which seems correct since we only get 2GB for app storage). But for some reason, this "other" 4.xx GB is taking up and messing up the total internal (app) storage....

I noticed it removed the automatic debug mode on connection to the PC but did not address the hotspot and usb drive/htc sync connection issues. I liked the options before in ICS where we decided what we wanted to do. Did not remove the power save mode from the task bar; i have not checked the proximity sensor issue yet either. I will test the 4g after work and see how well that holds up.

from google maps to navigation

I tried from navigation directly and it still crashes. I think Google might have to release an update to the maps app as this as been reported on the s3 as well after JB update....

Anyone else have issues of the alarm not going off? Twice already this past month it didn't go off even though it's set for Mon-Fri at 5:30AM? Not sure if it is an isolated event, or maybe something others have noticed and this update has maybe fixed?

I've never had any navigation issues, including with this update. If a factory reset doesn't fix the issue, there may be a hardware problem with your phone's GPS.

 

Its not a hardware issue and a factory reset does not fix it. There is a thread over on android central if you want more details. In summary, everything worked fine with ICS and now it doesn't.

I don't think its incorrect. I think what they are doing is also including the android OS and all the processes in that total. Before that 4GB partition was not included so if you had a 16 GB device it would show that you had 2GB of app storage and 10GB of Phone storage. People were probably asking "If I have a 16GB phone why am I only seeing 12GB?" At least that is how I took it. But heck I don't work at HTC or Sprint so I could be wrong.

Actually it makes sence. No matter how you look at it (before or after), I still have the same app storage space as before, but as you stated before, it seems that it is showing partitioned differently this time.

That's strange, I've been having a problem that I'm trying to sleep and my alarm goes off and wakes me up. ;)

I have been running custom roms for a while not sure if you are running stock or not but I have been having an issue with my alarm as well. What I notice is if I set my alarm(with the alarm clock notification showing on the top of the screen) it will go off when it suppose to just fine. If I set the alarm and reset the phone, then the alarm clock notification will be gone from the top of the screen and it won't alarm but if I go into the alarm settings the alarms are still set. So basically if I have to reset my phone for any reason I make sure I go back into my alarm settings, uncheck then recheck the box and the notification icon will show up again and the alarm will go off just fine.

    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
    • Verizon site at Woodbury Commons finally got C-band. I'm seeing upwards of 600Mbps there, a massive improvement over the <1Mbps I used to see. LTE is now at 10-20Mbps which is significantly better than before where speed tests would often fail. My only complaint is that C-band is super inconsistent. Not sure if it's a software issue but sometimes I'm connected to it and get the 600Mbps speeds previously mentioned and other times I connect and only see 15Mbps. Seems like whatever load balancing the network is trying to do is still shoving a ton of people to LTE, even in conditions where I have a strong C-band signal.  — — — — — You're absolutely right. The site on top of Bais Sarah Hall at 6101 16th Ave got decommissioned. Sad that they haven't installed a new site to fill in that coverage gap.  — — — — — In other news a carrier reached out to the board of my grandmother's building in Brooklyn about installing antennas on top of it so she called me today because she knows I map cell towers and she said a lot of people in her building, especially the folks on the upper floors, are worried about the health effects lol. I asked her if she knew what carrier it would be but she said she doesn't know. A quick glance at Cellmapper tells me it's either Dish or AT&T since Verizon and T-Mobile both have sites within a two block radius of her building but AT&T barely builds new sites so I'm leaning Dish. They're asking for a 25-year lease with an option to renegotiate the lease after 10-years. The board of her co-op said that if they do it, maintenance fees will go down since they'll be offset by the rent that the carrier would be paying them. She said she already voted in favor of it but she thinks that a lot of the older people in her building are against it.
    • Galaxy S7 FE most certainly doesn't have the same level of NR CA (if at all), it also looks like it doesn't have SA NR, so it's is inherently going to be much slower since most of the spectrum is now focused on NR rather than LTE. It's likely the same generation radio as the S21 (or maybe S20). Having trouble finding which it would be.
