Default How to: Manually apply Froyo 2.2 (3.26.651.3) update

Here's the working instructions... Lots of bad instructions and mis-information out there..

Want to upgrade manually yourself?
  1. Download the Android 2.2 firmware for the Evo to your PC.
  2. Place the file in the top level directory of your SD Card. (Do not unzip this file)
  3. Rename the downloaded file.
    (If your Windows is configured to show extensions, then rename it "update.zip" if you do not have extensions visible then rename it "update" (NOTE: If downloading the file from the above link, it's already been renamed for you)
  4. If you don't have it already, download ASTRO File Manager from the Android Market.
  5. Connect your EVO to your PC and set the connection type to "Disk Drive"
  6. Copy over the downloaded file to the root of your EVO directory structure.
  7. Power down your Evo
  8. Reboot into Recovery Mode by Holding down the “Volume Down” button as you power the phone back on.
  9. The Boot Loader will appear, A screen should appear showing your phone’s system searching for various files. Scroll down to “recovery” and press the “Power” button. (The Volume Up/Down buttons navigate the menu, and the Power Button selects the selection.)
  10. When you see the triangle with an exclamation point symbol, press the “Power” and “Volume Up” buttons at the same time. (and wait for 10-15 seconds), The recovery should eventually come up.
  11. Select Bootloader
  12. Scroll down to Recovery and select it
  13. The phone will reboot again, this time into Recovery.
  14. From the menu that appears, select “Apply sdcard:update.zip.” or "install from zip" (depending on your recovery image)
  15. When the screen displays “Install from sdcard complete” select “reboot system now” and wait for the phone to power back up.
  16. Wait a while.. the phone will reboot repeatedly and finally install the update with the new apps. (The installation can take up to 15-20 minutes)

Default **Froyo "leak" may not be the final ROM!**

As has been mentioned, this may not be the final ROM, so proceed to install at your own risk.

From Engadget:

Quote:
Update: HTC just shot us a message to clarify that this is not the final ROM version and that the company is strongly recommending not to install this. Additionally, a request has been put in to remove the file from the server, so if you still want to try at your own risk, better download now while it's still available.

Update 2: ... and now it's gone. We're sure crafty internet users can still find the file lingering elsewhere, but you won't be getting it from HTC's servers this weekend. You know the old saying, ye who snoozes, something something, tough luck.
Scare tactic from a HTC screw up? Maybe. It's also possible it was going to be a semi-quiet roll out that escalated into a very loud roar.

Those that don't mind taking a slight chance will have already downloaded or even installed already, but those of you on the fence may want to wait until the 3rd.

This post is not meant to argue either side. It's meant as a warning to those that are wary before the 3rd.

I will also add...

The Update was scheduled to be released to a certain few merchants and users this afternoon. They were notified by email to the link. Engadget (or whoever the hell else) got hold of the link and posted it up. This update for all intent and purposes is the final. Now it may be true that those who were destined to receive this link/file are beta testers to test it out and possibly get any fixes before Tuesdays official send off, but thats for another topic. So for all intent and purposes, this is the final, IMO.

Now this isn't an okay to go ahead and download it and install it. If anyone still has reservations, then like pwnst*r said don't download it. Be patient and wait till Tuesday for the file.

With that said, AndroidForums is not condoning or restricting anyone wanting to test this file themselves. Its your choice. All I ask is to read and re-read the instruction slowly and carefully and be patience while the install does what it does.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also Members,

The above post has been copied over from the "EVO 4G's Android 2.2 update starts trickling out July 30 (official OTA August 3rd)" thread. This allows you all to see the instructions without having to go in search of them in that 750+ post thread.

If you encounter any issue doing this install please post your issue in any of the following threads...

Discussions about the OTA update, the dates of release go to..
EVO 4G's Android 2.2 update starts trickling out July 30 (official OTA August 3rd)

For discussions on installation issues or error while installing, please post here...

For any issue after installation, please post in the Troubleshooting sub-section.

Thanks

But I think you should check again because HTC just removed that file from their server and you are no longer to download this file anymore. Because isn't final.

You've made an understandable error that's being fed all over the web.

The only thing that happened was that the file name was mangled - by both Macs and PCs - when providing the final DL version.

All that really happened was that it seems to contain some reference to the earlier 1.47.yadda update - either as part of the signature - or an internal install option for those running pre-1.47 -- without x-ray vision we can't be sure.

Here's the name of the file on download - prior to truncation/mangling.

OTA_update_name.jpg (click to expand)

Yet another update crisis scare averted.

Anyone that wants to verify - just look inside your Software information under Settings-> About phone.

PS - This is not a beta test file - this is a Release Candidate.

What comes out next week could be identical - or completely different.

This may be a 'release candidate', but it's not the 'final' copy. All that you type up was a waste. Like I said, the final copy is (3.26.651.3), that's not what was on HTC servers. If that is the final copy why did HTC take it off AFTER people started having problems with there phone?

Alot of people are making down right false claims that this is the final release even when htc has come out and said more then once it is not. I would trust HTC on this and not people in the forums.

Nobody knows outside of HTC what it will be.

They probably took it down because they didn't want it out there for everyone to download yet. Especially the way we are doing it.

It is suppose to be an over the air update and we are not installing it that way, so if people ruin their phone trying to install the way we are doing that could be a problem.

OK, now you're either terribly confused or your simply making things up.

HTC's intent was to limit the distribution of this RC. When it started getting widespread and rapidly adopted with a crack team of root users handing out instructions and proctoring people on what to do - they locked it down.

And please - stop being stubborn. Read the file handler I provided. This is 3.26.651.3 - period. You don't get to put your vote in on what you want a fact to be. You're simply quite mistaken about that file revision number.

And you may be right - it's entirely possible that everything I type is a waste, per the following model:

Horse. Water. Drink.

I have yet to notice people making that claim.

In fact, several of us have been arguing against that for hours and have been quite clear that this is an at-risk release candidate.

From the start.

So, these people insisting that this is final - what are their names?

Because HTC wanted guinea pigs, oops, I meant "self-volunteered" beta testers. I have the original file on my phone right now and another version from XDA on my computer. I just waited to see what the issues will be before I make my final decision on what to do.

If HTC doesn't change the version number but includes changes, are we screwed? the phone shouldn't recognize new software if we already have the right version number. this build does have some bugs.

I also think HTC knew exactly what they were doing. we are the last minute beta testers and then they can see forum feedback and make last minute changes.

I haven't noticed any bugs...yet. But if something does pop up and HTC releases the same version number but different code we can try the same manual update process. If that doesn't work then I'll be calling HTC/Sprint tech support..."Hello, yes, I just did the OTA update, my software version is 3.26.651.3 and it's not working right...now lets go through the steps to fix it".

But unless there are some new features added (in the next 2 days with coders working the weekend and not testing it) I am sticking with the version I have. Plus if Sprint sent out an OTA version yesterday to a select few for testing, I doubt Sprint would not provide those users with a method to update to a new version if something changes.

You must be hating life now that we have 2.2, considering you spent so much time and energy Thursday night and all day Friday trying to convince everyone that we wouldn't see it until late next week.

So hey, let's pretend HTC fix a bug in the release of 2.2 we're all running now.. big deal, we'll just download the new version when it comes out. Since updating Android doesn't nuke your phone, you can overlay newer versions without data loss or wasting time backing up/restoring, over and over.

I just did the update from http://filevo.com/es25thx7r1tv.html with the file

Filename:OTA_Supersonic_3.26.651.3-1.47.651.1_releaseu2cqjc2e98n4o6xn.zipSize:84.5 Mb (88566651 bytes) Report abuseUploaded on:2010-07-31 06:43:44

And it worked great just remember to rename the file to update.zip not update.zip.zip. Follow the previous instructions given and you should have no problems.

Well, I just did the update, and I get

Sorry! The application HTC Sense (process com.htc.launcher) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.

Non-stop for about 20 attempts. It was auto force-closing. Then it let me hit the force close button twice. Now, it just rebooted on it's own. And started the force close all over again. Neat.. heh.

Hrm.. now what..

lol that's what I get.. haha hrm..

Make sure it's in the right folder. I had same issue and had apparently dragged file into a sub folder of the root.

Do you see Android Robots at the bottom of that screen? I didn't when I had in wrong folder. I did when I had it in the root.

LOL

Note that under your Phone info above Software number there's also a Build number.

From Joe's Garage Software on up to Microsoft, anyone implementing process control is free to do that how they will in order to keep their act together and to serve customers.

This is _one_ Release Candidate for 3.26.651.3 - if they want to make the final rev that same number or different there's no cause for believing they're confused or concealing.

See my full file name picture above and look at your build number - as long as something identifies the package uniquely you've been done no harm.

Short-hand names or numbers are simply that.

There's too many notes in the song, Amadeus.

It is what it is.

Look at the size of a service pack upgrade from Microsoft or a sub-revision change for OS X - I'm surprised it's this small.

OTOH - if you're saying, hey, isn't that a lot to push out over the network?

Then, yep, it is - but not so different from a Qik video session.

I believe their press release said that it would be rolled over some days beginning August 3 - no doubt that's to reduce the network load and roll it out by regions or network segments.

I wouldn't be surprised if they put a PC-installer .exe out there for user download like they did for the 2.1 upgrade for Samsung Moment owners - but we'll see if that's malarkey that I conjectured or not next week as well.

What do you mean by this step:

"6. Copy over the downloaded file to the root of your EVO directory structure."

So far I've downloaded the update file to my PC and moved it onto my SD card. I've also already got Astro on my phone.

Just means the update.zip belongs in /sdcard as seen by Astro.

So basically all I need to do is:

1. Download the file to PC
2. Connect Evo to PC and set USB connect to disk drive
3. Move update zip into Evo drive
Then follow steps 7-16.

i didn't understand either

what it means is put in on your SD card, but not in a folder, just on the SD card so when you see it on your PC its on the first page/window and not in a sub folder

So I've proceeded to step 10 but after waiting several minutes the triangle/exclamation point screen has not changed (after holding power/vol up at same time). Any ideas?

Back up and running with 2.2 and the Evo feels sooo much faster than it did before -- back to how it felt before that terrible OTA update htc put out last month. However, it seems Android Market is unavailable. Anyone else having this problem?

Things can take a little bit of time to settle in.

Also - probably your first browser move will be to clear its cache.

lol decent easy link to find out if I have 10.1 working correctly? It wouldn't play a .FLV file from a ... cough.. reputable web site.
Babylon 5 Season 3 Episode 22 Z'Ha'Dum on SlashControl

Enlarge - so you can tap the lower right corner where it will show interlocking rectangles next to the (i) after the commercial.

That will pop the video out to full screen - should work correctly popped out as well as within stock browser.

That's your acid test.

Yeah, it looks like it's just having some connection issues as things slowly come back online. I went ahead and updated the prl and profile and I can access pretty much everything now but the weather widget.

Yes, play with LED Light if you have it - even uninstall if needed.

Also - now that you're there:

And remember, things WILL take a little bit to stabilize.
