OK....there will not Be a PURE google official release for the evo 3d -
all official releases will have the HTC Sense skin.

There are plenty of Fully functioning ICS Sense ROMS out there.

I have the EVO LTE and my 3vo. I like ICS, I do not like Sense 4. Anyone concerned about missing the "lightweight" new Sense, don't worry. It's not light and it's nothing to write home about. I've dumped most of it, and if I haven't been a hard core Sense fan, I'd do until one came along, if that tells you anything. If you want a good Sense clock replacement widget, check out the ones by Droid27 in the store, put that with Sense 3.6, and you're missing out on nothing in Sense 4, in my opinion.

And if you want a good ICS launcher when you finally get the update, go for the Nova launcher, it's superb.

Meanwhile, back to waiting for the official release.

I read somewhere (maybe even on here) that it's expected that Sprint will hold off until sales on the new ICS phones start to decline so the 3D update doesn't effect people's willingness to buy newer phones.

Not sure how true that is though

They've never done that before, makes no sense. The new phones are LTE in addition to ICS, with no reason to expect a sales decline anytime soon.

Just root and stop waiting for sprint. I got tired of these updates being pushed back all the time so i took the plunge. I'm now running ZR3D and it's amazing. Follow the instructions exactly and free yourself.

Oh, it's definitely true. I just called Sprint today to complain about the Sense crashes and memory leaks I've had on 2.3.4 for the past few months (and seemingly backed up by other reports of similar issues), and the response I got was to go into a Sprint store to get the phone upgraded to ICS. Which told me two things:
1. Sprint has ICS in its system, all ready to go, but
2. Sprint is refusing to release it for $ome $tupid rea$on.

We can all speculate on when the release will be, bottom line, do yourself a favor and simply root like others have mention, I have been on ICS for over a month and I love it and do not have to wait, the only issue, is not that we have ICS is that now we want more, LOL

Sprint nor HTC have ever been forthcoming with their releases, and they are not the only ones, I usually go by the saying when it is release it will be released and this way your expectations are not overwhelmed. You will get the ICS update sooner or later. ROOT ROOT and get it now and put your release date into your own hands, JMO

I'll patiently sit back and wait for the update to come to my phone. I'm not worried anymore. Sometimes after waiting so long, the anticipation gets numbed.

P.s. Rootingp is not an option for me.

Do any of the roots actually support WiMax fully? I'm not gunna root if I don't have 4G...and I would like to still be able to fully use my camera (and 3D)...so if there is a ROM that supports everything, I wanna give it a try...

Every ics Rom that was made after 5/24/12 has everything fully functioning. All threads are dated with when they were updated and will say 4.0.3 (I believe)

seriously. I went to my phone to try it before reading it all. Damn you sprint. Nothing is worse than hearing "a couple more weeks" either, cause it's been like that for months.

Oh man, just wanted to give a quick shout out/thanks to Sprint, who is pretty much the only carrier with the Evo 3D now that still hasn't pushed the ICS update out...and Jelly Bean could be here in under 3 weeks.

I'm not 100% sure the Evo3D will ever see Jelly Bean. If I understand correctly, the drivers for the 3D camera are fairly hard to code for. I'm the tiniest bit surprised we're getting ICS, frankly. Very thankful for the ICS upgrade though & patiently awaiting the ICS Evo3D experience.

It's debatable. We're still in that 18 month window, but Sprint has said it's now past it's EOL. But I think I'm going to agree with you on not getting JB. Sprint is now pushing the LTEvo pretty hard, the Evo 3D is now the Evo V on Virgin Mobile, and the 3D drivers might have to be recoded (even in a slight bit) to conform with Project Butter.

Hi!

I've recently updated my HTC to android 4 and sense 3.6.
Before the update I saw how many text messages had been sent in a thread(near the person's name) but now I can't find it anywhere.
Please tell me where can I find it!

Thx,

I am disappointed on how this was handled by Sprint and HTC. I truly hoped google was reigning in the hardware makers and the carriers regarding updates but I see nothing has changed.

With the phone only being a year old we can't move to the next phone so we are stuck. And even if upgrading was an option I shouldn't feel the need to just to get an update that my phone spec wise can easily handle.

Even though I have never rooted, I have a lot of respect for the guys who create the various ones and share them with who needs them. I will probably end up rooting this phone before it is all over.

There are truly few other options I see. I don't like the iPhone even though I use all other apple products -macbook pro, iPad, and apple TV. My next phone may be one google has more control over, so that i can ensure I get the latest updates.

If google is going to truly grow, it will need better control of app and hardware development.

My next phone will be a Nexus (I have no doubt) & my Wife wants an iPhone. Getting the Android updates so late is just unacceptable & the manufacturers (& carriers) are not getting any better about it. It's very frustrating. Especially after they continue to tell us they will improve the fragmentation & then they simply don't do so.

The added complexity and the gamble of the 3D was definitely a mistake for Sprint and HTC (something I could talk about for hours). ICS was a full 1.0+ version release away from our current gingerbread though, so if you want to be optimistic about things, Jellybean is only 4.1. Perhaps the code changes from 4.0 to 4.1 aren't that significant to warrant as long a wait for JB as the wait has been for ICS.

This. My next phone will be the next Nexus phone as well. Almost tempted to get the current one just so I can start playing with JB but patience has always served me well.

I think I'm going to save up my money and buy me a Nexus also. I'll have to pay full price now since I just bought my GS3. I'm also going to root my 3D. No more waiting for Sprint. I'll have Jelly Bean on my 3D before Sprint puts out ICS. Lol.

I have the new(current) Galaxy Nexus on Sprint as well the the 3D...The Nexus is great besides not being able to have LTE yet...so the 3D is still a lot faster for web stuff/downloads...I really like the pure ICS of the Nexus(soon to be Jelly Bean), but I still think the 3D is almost on the same level as far as phone performance...The Nexus does certain things better...the 3D does certain things better...

My next phone will likely 99% be the new iPhone tho...that specs are that thing are ridiculous and I use Apple for everything else already...so it only makes sense

After using the EVO 4G (original) & the EVO 3D recently, I switched to a Nexus this time - and based on what I've seen so far, I suspect I'll stick with the Nexus series going forward. (whether I stick with Sprint or not will depend partly on how late the updates are pushed to the CDMA Nexus - and of course on how good their LTE network turns out to be)

Yes, I know, I shouldn't worry about updates because of the ease of rooting etc - but I shouldn't have to worry about installing a custom ROM (with some broken features - like MMS on the current JB ROM out there). That's one of the points of getting a Nexus - timely updates. If I wanted to install custom ROMs, well, the EVO 3D will do just as well. The Nexus doesn't have some incredible hardware compared to other phones.

Having said that, the old EVO 3D is still in the family, on the second line that had a Windows phone. Works great (better battery life and better wifi performance compared to the Nexus).

Looks like I was right in being skeptical we'd see the update in June. I recall there was speculation it might appear in April or possibly May, with June the absolute latest. Sprint then says a June-July upgrade slot. We now find out that EVERY OTHER (non-Sprint) 3D got their update last week, while we Sprint suckers are still waiting.

My official guess is the earliest we'll see the Sprint update is Sunday July 29th, assuming a Sunday release date like some other updates. This is the last Sunday in July. If it comes sooner, I guess I'll be pleasantly surprised.

I also will say I bet there is a likelihood it gets bumped out into August, seeing as how ICS has been out for 6 months already and we STILL don't have an official update.

Perhaps I'm missing the obvious, but an official Sprint ROM isn't likely to offer anything new/better than what the community ROMs out there, is it?

Also, I'd love to get a Nexus device, but unless they're willing to offer 32GB minimum, and 64GB for breathing room, I'm on the fence due to the lack of expandable memory. Same reason I'm not getting a Nexus tablet. I know Google wants me to use their cloud stuff and everything, but between Sprint coverage/speed and the way I use my media, it's just not going to cut it.

Sprint and VZN do offer 32GB on their Galaxy Nexus

I don't know if I would want a Nexus, at this point. I'm actually enjoying TouchWiz. It's just not as pretty as Sense, IMO.

I do agree with EM that Sense 4 isn't anything to write home about. Although, I will say this about Sense 4: They did the ICS App Launcher/Widget launcher right. You can sort widgets by app name and then preview the ones available to the apps. That, right there, is something that the other ICS launchers sorely lack (save for maybe CM9's trebuchet). It makes placing widgets so much easier.

Thumbs down ICS Update = No Mobile Data

So last night my HTC Evo 3D did an official update to Android Version 4.0.3, HTC Sense Version 3.6, Software Number 3.28.707.1 and now I can't get my mobile data to work. WiFi, Bluetooth all work fine but not mobile data. I've tried all the setting I could, uninstalled apps I thought might be affecting it. No luck.

Has anyone else seen this problem?

Cheers.

It's GSM. I just did a factory reset and that seems to have solved the problem. Dunno why I didn't think of that in the first place. Maybe because I hadn't had my coffee yet.

You're right, my fault, I was kind of jumbling two different ideas while typing that (Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus). Still, would like to have the expandable option so that I'm not getting "ripped off"* for additional memory.

*Say, for example, Nexus 7. 8 GB for 199, an additional 50 for another 8 GB, when I've seen 8 GB cards for roughly 50 cents per GB, or $4.

As for ICS, I'm enjoying my custom ROM, though, most of the changes I'm enjoying are from going from stock to custom, not GB to ICS.

I am really disappointed with Sprint and HTC on this one. It's been more than a year since I got my Evo 3D and there's still no update to ICS which was supposed to be delivered months ago.

Not that I don't know how to, I just choose not too. I've never had a problem that I can't fix (yet) on my phone, and I've seen too many people having "unknown" problems since rooted.

Anyways, I'll be upgrading to the Evo 4g Lte early next year. So, for the time being...I think I'll keep it the way it is.

P.s. Ice Cream Sandwich is about to drop anytime soon. Yeah!

I feel the same way. I think they could have given us this update a lot earlier than what they're doing. :O

They come up with this crap about this and that...whatever!! I hope this month (July) is when we will finally get to enjoy ICS.
