Just got the update installed yesterday. Loving it.

The menus switch more seemlessly now and the GPS button is now fixed!

Battery life seems bout the same for me, but I guess it'll take more time for me to notice differences.

Nah, it still beeps with the power saver off. Maybe actually having it on will stop the beep. Or I can just deal with it lol

Very probably. I think the OTAs do a quick firmware check to see if you're up to date. If not, they don't try to apply. So you probably have to take that one and then check again.

If you're rooted on HBOOT 1.4, do not take the OTA.

Have you turned the phone all the way off (with "Fast Boot" unchecked in Settings > Power or by pulling the battery out) since your update?

You may also need to do a factory reset to clear everything out. Make sure to back up everything you care about before doing that.

And, if it still does it after a factory reset, then I'd take it to Sprint and complain that the update screwed up your phone.

I'm assuming you have never rooted?

What was the software version? It might be related to this if you haven't already had it: Maintenance Upgrade for the HTC EVO 3D Rolling Out

Update your PRL, then update your profile. If you don't know how, they are in Settings > System Update. Then reboot your phone. If 3G is still bad, call Sprint. The tower in your area may have some problems.

I was browsing G&E and came across a tip on a ROM customization by tommytomatoe that features what I've been looking for. [Mod] Extended Quick Settings - Sense 1.0 Legacy - xda-developers It provides some customized extended quick settings for the Evo 4G.

HTC, please add a brightness shortcut similar to this, ASAP:

Welcome to the forums Sandore,
You are on the right track, however, HTC does not put things under firmware but very rarely so you will not find it there.

Make sure you have 3G/4G/Wifi on and you are going to want to go to:
Settings -> System Updates -> HTC Software Update -> Check now button.

Thanks for the reply. Not to totally rain on your idea, but I already am familiar with this widget. It just doesn't cut the mustard for me.

I'm not a fan of toggle widgets since they cannot be put into a folder on the home screen at this time and plus you are almost always stuck with someone's preset on one level or another. I don't want to click through 2 or more settings either. There are better toggles on the market, but I don't want to use a 3rd party application or toggles at all for something like this. More widgets and toggles are counter intuitive and the slider should be the notification bar (like touch wiz) or easily accessed in the quick settings under the notifications bar.

What they said ^^^ there is no system update option anywhere. Its under settings, then system updates. In here you'll find Android software update (firmware), profile update, PRL update, and HTC software update (the one you're looking for)

Default EVO 3D Software Update Problems

I recently allowed my phone to update to software version 2.17.651.5 through Sprint. Not sure if that was a good idea or not - but it's never really given me any problems before this.

After this update it seems a lot of my apps freeze randomly. Occasionally going out of an app and back to the home screen will freeze up the entire phone. This will last 30sec to several minutes; and usually cure itself. I haven't had to physically remove the battery to regain control (yet! knock on wood!)

I was just curious if anyone else has experienced this problem.

I have not rooted the phone or anything - Although I have been considering it. I'm hesitant to because I did that to my HTC Hero with very poor results and I could never 'undo' what I did to that phone. I don't want to go through that again with my E3D...

Looking forward to reading if anyone else had had similar issues...

Smith Micro Software Announces Mobile Network Director? Solution To Manage Data Overload For Mobile Operators

I noticed in the Smith.apk settings (*#*#76484#*#*), they are very Gingerbread specific and specifically set to expire 03/30/12. Not to say that they can't extend that date somehow, but I'm willing to bet we might get ICS before 03/30/12. It falls in line with the Q1 predictions from Sprint and HTC too. This current update is a band aid until 03/12, and they are right now working on the ICS build I'd bet? Its not really new info, maybe just further confirmation of suspicions?
As we are past 03/30/12 now I just wanted to follow up on my hypothesis. I was wrong, I can admit that. Its ok. Glad I'm not a betting man.

When you dial into the Smith settings it now shows "Smith - Expired!".
If it is expired and non-functioning now, Sprint is going to want administer an update sooner rather than later? Think about all the data they are missing out on logging and mining from us. Maybe their ICS schedule just got pushed back a few weeks further than they expected? Or maybe it has been an inconsequential date the entire time.

I suspect/hope we will find out when our Ice Cream Sandwich update will be this Wednesday at the Sprint-HTC media event.

You can filter your logcat to see if there's anything being transmitted by smith.apk. Logcat apps (I like alogcat) do not require root and show you everything that's being logged.
