Its gonna be a while for it to roll out everywhere. The important thing to note is that if you are rooted NEVER accept an OTA!!

Actually this OTA installs an app. Plain and simple. Just like flashing "gapps", with only one "gapp", but in the form of an OTA

Which would be just another reason not to accept it. Its easy enough to side-load an app, why even risk it?

And that is assuming that is truly the only thing in the OTA. During the last OTA the enhancements/fix list said nothing about upgrading android to 2.3.5

Its a 6 week rollout and we're only in week 3, so you just have to be patient with it.

I want to get my hands on this update and see what's included.

I've been trying to manually receive it for weeks. I assume your friend isn't rooted so I can extract the OTA file. I guess I'll just have to wait until I get it . I hate waiting. It's bad enough I have to wait for my next device to clear customs when I should've had it in-hand today.

Actually, if it's rooted, you can allow the update to download, just don't install it.

Then, use a file explorer with root capability to navigate to /cache, and copy the file that starts with OTA over to the SD card. Then you can post it somewhere for me to download and dissect .

If you're up for it, that is. Typically, the rule is not to accept the OTA, but the only way for someone (a dev, or me) to actually use it is to download and not apply. After that, you can disable updates. If it was pushed to me, I would've done it already .

If I get it soon I will get you a copy. Do they even come if you are running a custom rom, I switch roms alot but have long stretches with CM and don't think I've ever gotten an OTA. Or I may have and forgotten about it.

AOSP ROMS will not check for the update, but any sense ROM is able to.

I just downloaded and installed this update a few minutes ago in South Orange County, CA. My phone is now stuck in an infinite loop that keeps returning to this error message:

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

Underneath this message is a button that says on it "Force Close." Every time I press this button, I get the same error message. I tried rebooting the phone several times, but that didn't help. My phone is not rooted and had the latest updates up until this one.

Any suggestions?

I'm eligible for an upgrade, so maybe Sprint will give me a new phone for free if they can't fix my EVO 4G. I want to upgrade to the EVO 4G LTE.

I'm getting some weird behavior with it too. My Market won't download anything, and the phone keeps hot rebooting.

If anyone else wants to try out the new OTA (stock unrooted users only), I created a thread for it over on XDA:

[OTA] 5.07.651.1 Update (ZIP DOWNLOAD INSIDE!) - xda-developers
ocnbrze and argedion like this.

Is this update still available? I saw this update last week but was too busy to do the upgrade then. But I cannot see this update anymore. My phone says it is up to date already.

If you want to try it, you can always just install it from the link in the post above yours. Note, however that you won't be able to remove the update unless you decide to root your device. I have seen reports of better battery life with the update, but I've also seen some reports of weird behavior.

I have yet to receive an update hopefully within the next few weeks I can get it. It's been a while since an update if I'm right. BTW I'm in Michigan, just outside of Lansing.

I have a rooted EVO on Boost. It's using a Rant's ESN. If I turn on the 4g antenna will Sprint detect it's a Rant and since a Rant is unable to do 4g...turn my phone off?

The good news is that this fixed the wifi problem from the last update. The wifi antenna no longer resets every 5 minutes.

I got pinged to receive this update a few hours ago. My generic EVO extended battery literally died just before I had a chance to accept or reject it (irony?), but I would have rejected it anyway.

I'd like to keep my options open for a future root, assuming I can solve an unrelated problem with HTC Sync.

What version of android are you on? If you took the last update to get you to 2.3.5 then your going to have to use HTC dev (hboot 2.18) from here on out and that will always be available. If youve been denying updates for longer than that (hboot less than 2.18) the old root methods still work.

Either way, I'd say root it.

Do you know what your hboot is?

Yes, unfortunately I accepted the previous update to 2.3.5. Before joining AF, I wasn't aware that updating made it harder to root. I'm also not sure how to determine my hboot.

I'm in between the initial steps from the [Revised] Rooting Gingerbread 2.3.5 Dummies Guide because I read that a functional HTC Sync is a prerequisite for the rooting process.

I installed this update over the weekend. My Evo seems to run a bit faster. Where can I find the list of new features supported by this update?

The newest OTA just added a wireless connections manager

It also added App Associations, in order to comply with the Apple patent/lawsuit issue.

Ziplip Two months - Too Late

Almost two months and still no update here in the S.F. Bay Area.

I had hoped to hang onto the original EVO a little longer with the update but it looks like I'll just take a $65 trade-in against $149 (Amazon Wireless) for a new EVO LTE.

I doubt this update alone would keep you on the EVO for much longer if you are already considering an upgrade. If you toggle wifi on and off as you need it like you should you probably won't notice much of a battery life increase.

Wink HOT Dang - Just Got The Update

COLD Dang - just got a new EVO LTE in the same morning. Good thing I did not activate it, thus deactivating the original EVO and I would never have gotten the update short of a WiFi APK download.

No problems at all. Don't forget to update your PRL and then your PROFILE.

I think I'll keep the original EVO now instead of trading it in for $65. It makes for a good bathroom reader.

How do you turn off the optimizer? It's annoying me greatly as I don't have any wifi networks I connect with and it keeps telling me there are some in range (I live in an apartment so that's all day and night).

That's not the optimizer - there's a setting under WiFi to notify of available networks. Just uncheck that box, and no more notification!

But to answer your actual question, the Optimizer toggle is under

Settings -> Wireless & Networks -> Mobile networks -> Automatic Connections

Received my update two days ago and installed. The only thing that I noticed is that the option to view youtube videos through either the mobile youtube app or the web when a link is clicked is no longer available. Now if you click a link to a youtube video it defaults to the youtube site which sucks because the videos don't play smoothly when viewed through the website.

Unfortunately that can only be fixed by rooting now.
