The new app installed is Google Now, and just like the early Google+, it's a bit of a power hog with the default setup.

Might want to look there first.

What's the problem with Google now does it sync a lot or is it just always active?

if you have Facebook installed and have updated it to the latest version (2.0) you will need to go into the settings and change the refresh interval as it has defaulted back to update every 1 hour. As far as the battery life on Jelly Bean it has been the same for me since I've updated (100% Stock Phone) I noticed the change in the Facebook settings and having it update every 1 hour will kill your battery.

the microphone is to the right of the space bar above the period symbol, long press and it will come up...it seems to be more responsive than before... you also have to long press the smiley button to insert smiley faces now

all you have to do is cut off a pair of phones you dont use or get a mini jack adapter. you know the ones that allow you to connect a smaller or larger jack?

Now I can see a company making a small plug(like your super small usb plug for wireless mouse) and marketing it as a camera silencer.. Wait. maybe I need to patent that and give half to marctronixx

What would be sweet would be to make something smaller with a resistor that, when plugged in and used with Tasker or similar, would not only mute the shutter sound but launch the camera app. That would be cool!

Good point. I have the whole adapter kit that came with an extender. Need it small enough to not be obtrusive, but large enough to get a grip on it to remove when needed.

This is what I need. the little guy from Saw sitting on my phone and plugged into my headphone jack. BTW. Googling 3.5mm plug cover yields alot of results

http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/621907970/SAW_Jigsaw_Puppet_Jack_Cover_earphone.html

Just realized though, that these aren't metal, thus probably not tricking the phone into thinking you had headphones plugged in.
PS: Tried Bluetooth, but I still had shutter sound. Hopefully someone can come up with a headphone toggle via a widget, though I doubt that is even possible.

My battery was draining fast after the update.
But yesterday I factory reset it and it seems fine now, even back to normal.
One thing that did seem to resolve with this update was how hot the phone was getting during navigation. Now it doesn't seem to get hot.

It's a good idea, but if you leave it on wouldn't you not be able to hear the ringer?

Also, has anyone tried using a stealth camera app? There is this one available...

Search the Play Store for silent camera for other choices as well.

The stealth cameras aren't likely to win you friends, yeah?

JB upgrade seems to be going well except one major problem. I can't seem to connect to my PC via USB. I choose USB File Sharing and Disk Drive and nothing happens. Any ideas?

It seems this might be the thread to post issues since the JB update. Here are a few things I have noticed/don't like:
Keyboard changed: symbol button on wrong side now, slows down typing
Missing mic on stock KB (came back after rebooting)
Songs skip/crack via Bluetooth in my car now. It's so bad I can't use streaming Bluetooth anymore because it happens multiple times during a song that used to play perfectly before the update.
When I answer a phone call sometimes the screen goes black before I even put it to my head and then when I move the phone away from my head at the end of a call the screen sometimes does not come back on, I have to press the power button to get the screen on (prox sensor problem all the sudden?). I can see the prox light on sometimes while the screen is black.
Touch screen is not as responsive to touches. Sometimes I have to mash my finger on the screen to get the phone to detect the touch.
When I plug the phone into the HTC USB cable and plug it into the port on my car the radio won't detect it anymore. It will say READING USB DRIVE, then disconnect and reconnect and do that over and over. On the phone the charge light will be flashing and the USB Debugging message will appear and disappear over and over. The car reads my flash drive fine so I think it's the phone.
<edit> also forgot to mention, so far one time I unplugged the wall charger and the phone still showed it was charging. Light was on, battery app said it was charging still. I had to reboot the phone to reset it.

I've been sounding off to HTC through their support/contact link at htc.com, and I urge people with feature downgrades to do the same.

I've complained about the update installer not clearing cache, and the new behavior when you plug in to a PC.

Tell them your story politely and request an update to fix this nonsense asap. If you bought the phone today with your problems with it, would you take it back for another brand? Let them know that you believe that this is affecting buying decisions.

They won't fix it if we don't speak up.

Keep the first contact clear and simple, you'll get a case number and a link if you need to add to it.

Ok, after playing with jb for a few days I had to do a factory reset. I used MyBackup and the restore crashed sense. I had to reset again. Sigh, so I'm not without my important stuff since all of it is backed up by either Google, Dropbox, or my SD card. But I've had to fiddle with all my settings. I lost a two characters I really liked in two separate games. It's all good in the grand scheme of things.

1. But, I can't seem to find the place to change the clock on my lock screen. I looked under settings>personalize>lock screen and there doesn't seem to be a way to do it like I did it in ics.

2. Also using Swype to enter text in some text fields on some websites is extremely frustrating now. It's rather buggy. The Sense keyboard has a couple of issues too with entering text into text fields on websites. I use Dolphin Browser.

Does anyone know anything that might help with those two items?

Unless that 'friend' is my wife who is in bed trying to sleep while I'm taking pictures of the dogs doing something cute or stuff that I'm listing on Craigslist. This idea that people who want their camera to be silent are ALL perverts needs to stop. It's also a ridiculous notion to think that people who ARE perverts aren't just going to circumvent the stock camera app for their nefarious uses is naive at best. I'm sick of being made to do something because of a few bad apples.

Stealth cameras and silent cameras are two separate things. Look at the screenies in that market link.

Stealth cameras display a fake screen of email, a website or a notes app rather than a camera screen. Their intended use is clear. The more people that download them, the more that lawmakers and special interest groups get upset.

I hardly think that a crappy stealth camera is what you want when taking non-stalker pictures of your own dogs.

There are very nice silent cameras according to user reviews.

Or because you're rooted, you could sideload the camera I suggested without installing a whole rom, something that you mentioned in the root forum that you don't want to do. (Download rom to pc, unzip, grab from /system/app, and copy over your own. Wipe caches, fix permissions, and enjoy the best camera you'll find on this phone. The dev said that he is ok with sharing.)

Anbody use the panoramic camera after the update? Can't seem to get it to work. I hit the shutter and it immediately says I'm panning too quick before I've even moved it. The black screen on phone calls is randomly back which is a little irritating. Battery life seems to be worse but it could be that I've been playing with it more than usual. I can live with all though since I still have yet to have a missing text notification. The latter seems to be fixed correctly so far. Haven't missed a work text yet which is VERY good!

I didn't bother looking at any of the links because the discussion was about audible shutter sound not being able to be muted. That's the conversation I'm having.

Is it the stock JB v4.2 camera with Sphere? I would be willing to put the effort forth if it were.

Understand. I was originally trying to separate wheat from chaff on the topic.

Sorry, not sure, I'm back on ICS, but maybe not.

The features controlling compression (stock does too much) and video bitRate (stock does too little) and other image quality settings is my focus (no pun intended).

Understood on both counts. For me, the sound effect isn't a daily problem so I doubt I'll put too much effort into it. But, at some point, I will be pissed I didn't do something about it when I'm at a presentation or something where silence is expected and I want/need to take a picture. There have been a few times over the years where I was very glad I had the ability to mute the shutter sound effect and NONE of them were illegal.

I'm sure that this feature was most likely brought on by scared corporate attorneys and embraced by r&d as one less thing to do.

Ok if we continue chatting on this but any more and I think we're better off with post moves to a new thread, ok?

Exclamation Jelly Bean Update Bugs!

Iím having severe proximity sensor issues which I had when I first got the phone but then the previous update fixed it, however itís back with the Jelly Bean update. The little red proximity sensor dot stays on all the time after a call unless you put the phone on speaker before hanging up. I want to break my phone as sometimes if itís dark my phone will not turn back on so that I can end my call or put someone on speaker or even answer another incoming call, ARG! It works better in super bright rooms but it worked fine before the update.

My battery life is worse than before and I have almost all of the Google apps disabled except maps. The power saver always kicks on automatically when your battery gets low, which is more than annoying and there is no way to disable it.

The 4X1 people widget is now gone and there is no way to make the other two fit to itís old size. I donít want to waste a whole or half a screen on people link access.

The background wallpaper no longer moves when you swipe between each home-screen like it used to. So the image always stays static in the background and old wallpapers which were made to scroll are messed up.

The new ďBattery UseĒ power options are horrible. There is no real way to tell which apps are using your battery as the percentages donít equal 100% and they removed the most important one, ďScreenĒ which allowed you to see how long your screen has been on for?! They also removed standby usage option which would allow you to see how long your phone had no signal. So they basically handicapped the ďUsageĒ power options and made them completely useless.

The HTC Hub is gone along with the tons of ringtones, sounds, themes, etc. How are users supposed to download the flashlight and other HTC apps like the different calculators, word of the day, stopwatch, battery widget, etc? They forced us to use HTC Hub and now they remove it permanently? WTF?! The new update is so eclectic with many greens left over from previous sense versions mixed with the new blue color scheme. Ugly.

Many times since I updated my text messages refuse to send or send much later or never. Even with perfect signal I still have issues. Offline Google voice typing never seems to kick in when I have a crappy signal or no signal. The only way I could get it to work was by disabling 3G and WiFi? So what good is it?

Typing always brings up a keyboard notification in the shade that keeps asking me which keyboard I want to use (input method), HTC Sense or Google Voice typing and it never goes away. Every time I start to type it pops up and then goes away when Iím done typing.

The new sense keyboard a lot of the time misses words and spellings forcing me to go back and do it. The smiles are huge and there is no way to make them normal sized. And sometimes the mic icon on the default sense keyboard disappears and you can no longer do voice typing?! Only a reset Iíve found brings it back? This is extremely annoying! Not to mention some people are having sever keyboard distortion in which the keyboard is unrecognizable and unusable!

The new voice-mail app is horrid and too bright. They constantly try to get you to accidentally click the monthly subscription to their transcription service. I want the old voice-mail app back. There is also a bug in which the screen goes black when listening to a message and all you can do is exit to get back to where you were?

Various other bugs and issues include: You can no longer mute the phone while taking pictures for the shutter sound even when the phone is in silent mode. WiFi doesnít work for some, I personally havenít had this one. Many Bluetooth functions are now broken and no longer working as they did before the update such as controlling your phone from another device via Bluetooth (car, etc). I can no longer view my SD card as a drive when I have my USB cable connected which makes it annoying to transfer files and such. Iíve had some touch screen issues with the screen not recognizing touches similar to the folder touch bugs many have had in which the screen doesnít detect the correct position for onscreen item selections. Adobe Flash Player can no longer be updated and it doesnít even appear in the market anymore? The USB Debugging notification is persistent when a USB cable is connected even if the option is off!

This will be my last HTC phone as this amount of bugs in a final release is crazy bad. I love my EVO but these issues are just too plaguing and serious. And I bet we donít see an update to any of these for at least a few months if not LONGER! I just started this thread to get a list of the bugs started and that way perhaps we can get it to HTC to fix our phones, so here's to hoping!


Thanks,



5th

Default No Voice microphone on keyboard!

After JB, I traded the EVO 3D that I bought on the first day for this 4G LTE dinosaur April release phone. But now, it should rock with slick JB, I thought. I bought an LTE for my wife in April, and I like it better than the S3, but now I hope it gets the support it deserves.

HTC Hub is gone. Can't get HTC flashlight, and my keyboard microphone is not there. Well, I got the microphone back. It's on the Sense keyboard above the period, but not on the swipe keyboard at all. My calendar appointments are all doubled, with a warning that there is a conflict. If I delete one, they both are gone. Not crazy good. The phone is cool, and I love the way it feels. JB is the first OS for this phone; I ran all the updates after purchase.

The proximity sensor issues is the one thing that is bothering me the most. It gets real annoying when I can't end a call especially when leaving a voice message and the only way to end the call is to hold the power button down until the phone turns off. Hope a fix comes soon....real soon.

You should be able to just tap the power button and the screen turns back on

Default Jelly Bean Update??? ugh

So I have to begin by saying I'm not a big phone geek. I love my HTC EVO LTE but probably don't fully utilize all it's functionality.

Last week it prompted me to do a system update- I'm assuming to what is referred to as Jelly bean. So I did the update....and from I can see so far it sucks. Here's what I've noticed...some of this I may be able to change but I haven't figured out how yet.

1- My PIN to unlock the phone has always been numeric- so a numeric only keyboard has always come up to unlock it. Now that has been changed to a full keyboard which makes typing the numbers in more difficult. Not a big deal but how do I get my numeric keyboard back to unlock the phone??

2- Voice mail- when you delete a voice mail it now immediately plays the next voice mail as opposed to going back the main voice mail screen- this is driving me crazy. I've searched setting but see nothing to adjust that setting. ???

3- In notifications, before when I would receive an outlook e-mail and clicked on the notification, it would bring me to my outlook e-mail. Now, when you click on the outlook notification it brings you into the actual e-mail that is new. I would much prefer to just go to outlook as opposed in the actual e-mail.

There seem to be some others that I can't think of at the moment, but any thoughts on these would be greatly appreciated...

Considering rooting this thing tonight due to all the issues, some which other have so it's not just me. Let the research begin, I guess.

Am I the only one with no issues to report? Both my phone and my wife's phone are functioning flawlessly for the last few days since the update. I flashed the rooted ROM and have had none of the issues that others are talking about. I guess we're just lucky.

There are many people who do not post on forums who are not having any issues at all. typically those folks don't post up to say "well golly, the update worked without any issue.."

I usually have had good success with the upgrades on Android. I have not had to factory reset. 'course I don't mod my phone and have a lot of things running on it. I keep my phone real basic- one home screen. nothing on it but the Google search bar, black wallpaper sans designs or live animations. i keep my caches clean and don't install and run a lot of junk, so i've had good results.

if and when I upgrade to JB (I think ill wait until January when the update wants to self install itself) i for see no issues with it (i didn't install the ringtone fix update when it was briefly available before being pulled off the shelf).

whew! long winded post to say you are more than likely not alone...

Tell them your story politely and request an update to fix this nonsense asap. If you bought the phone today with your problems with it, would you take it back for another brand? Let them know that you believe that this is affecting buying decisions.

They won't fix it if we don't speak up.

Keep the first contact clear and simple, you'll get a case number and a link if you need to add to it.
This needs to be bolded, underlined, italicized, *stickied*, and repeated over and over again. I'd love to see this post broken out onto the front page as a PSA to all, as has been done in the past. Along with HTC update best practices(back up, factory restore before and/or after taking an update - an essential part of cache cleaning). I think we, that have been around for a while, tend to take for granted information that we begin to recognize as common knowledge or par for the course. Seems like just in this thread alone there are a number of folks that don't know or have forgotten the HTC update process that we have assimilated over the years.

This feature or lack there or has flip flopped a few times intentionally or accidentally across the Evo line of phones and even across updates. I will not speculate or talk about the widely supposed reasoning (I wish we could talk about the camera shutter sound without this supposed resoning coming up everytime - it lets 'them' win), think about corporate lawyers, or R&D.
It is my belief that Sprint and HTC both have a hand and "say" in this. It has been anything but consistent. HTC has stated that the door is open to us, the end user, to have the final say in this. All we have to do is speak up.
AndroidForums.com | HTC Evo 3D - Disabling Shutter Sound?
Quote from HTC: "I have noted your request for full control of this and other sounds. If enough users like yourself request this type of thing, it will be changed."
See above, in EarlyMon's post, for the way to contact HTC and report a bug or issue ^

No.
You are not the only one with NO issues to report. And NO, Joe bag-a-donuts is not the only WITH issues to report.
EarlyMon, don't these over-generalizing questions fall somewhere onto your hierarchy of post-update posts?
Even if you are someone with no issues to report, you can help everyone out that owns this phone by opening a ticket with HTC to fix the problems that others are experiencing, in specific detail. We shouldn't just think for ourselves as we can accomplish much more as a tightly banded community.

Most of the time when I just tap the power button the screen just flashes on then right back to a black screen and sometimes when I tap the power button the the buttons on the bottom of the phone blink once or twice and nothing happens on the screen its just black.

Hmm new issue that has popped up for me. When attaching a Screenshot I have taken of say a text thread to an MMS, the quality is degraded to the point where the text is largely unreadable. Some pictures attach fine but others are extremely degraded in quality. I know when you attach a Picture to MMS it compresses it and reduces the file size but it looks terrible now. If you want to test it the best example is to go to Settings > About > Software Information > and then take a screenshot. Then open messages and attach it to one, the text will be almost unreadable. I have not tried this with any other Messaging apps yet because I use the Stock. A small workaround I have found is to Screenshot and then Crop the area I am trying to show and attach that. It is still degraded but readable.

Mine works this way but in reality should I have to? No. Before the update when I was done on a call the second I removed the phone from my ear the screen came back on. Why are most forced to go through an extra step to place calls? The proximity sensor (at least for my phone) has been broken by the last update. :-(

No, you shouldn't have to. I'm just saying that poster doesn't have to power the phone down to end a call.

I would encourage those of you experiencing the issue to report it to HTC

Could you help me diagnose it? If you hold the proximity sensor up to a bright light during a call and then take it away does it respond?
