Default HTC EVO 4G LTE Android 4.3 Update Delayed

EDIT: I'm completely blind EM posted this a few weeks ago.

Nothing to see here, move along....


Just read this a few minutes ago. Can't believe I didn't hear about this sooner.

We have a really good Sense 5 rom currently running for the rooted users, so maybe this update doesn't seem as critical. I dunno.

Sense 5 Port - Android 4.1.2 - working Bluetooth, Face Unlock

Article can be found here:
HTC EVO 4G LTE Android 4.3 Update Delayed, It Seems

Were any of yinz really looking forward to this happening sooner than later?

My wife's phone now. I waited anxiously for 4.3 to drop for my Note 2, only to be disappointed. The update added little discernible improvement for me. Essentially , it's little more than moving around the deck chairs a little. The dev community has largely moved on and there is precious little in the way of rooted 4.3 (MK4) roms beyond a couple of basic almost stock roms. There appears to be little or nothing more to come either. I ended up going back to my heavily themed ( and now 6 month deserted by its dev) 4.1.2 based rom. The other issue we're now seeing with the LTEvo is the battery which seems to have noticeably diminished capacity (inevitable?). I didn't think this would be an issue when I bought the phone, but this may be a reason to avoid phones without removable batteries in the future. I'm not even sure my wife will hold out with this phone for 4.3 to drop . The complaints about battery life are growing louder.

Sense 5 might be a reason to stress out about the delay, but I don't think 4.3 itself is.

If a factory data reset doesn't cure the battery problem, it's the easiest of this series to get into and replace the battery.

If I don't see something that really changes my mind, I'll do that and run this puppy until yet another generation comes out.

Thanks for the info, KENNECTED.

I have a new EVO 4G LTE, and I will hold out until the update drops.

I have a good feeling about this.

Always assume that updates break s-off, so if you want that, go for it ahead of time.

QFT.

Always root pre-update - Rule #2.
Rule #1 always perform a nandroid before doing anything.

So ... in other words, if I want the benefits of s-off — I should go ahead now and root this bad-boy before the update drops officially?

Hmm, interesting!

There are no other ways of getting s-off after accepting the update?

What's your crystal ball say?

You can unlock your bootloader with HTC's unlock code and root from there.

S-off comes from devs exploiting security holes. The reason we have so many versions for this phone is because HTC keeps plugging the holes.

The next update may be broken in days.

Or, as people who waited at one point with the original Evo, you could take the next update and wait for months.

Or forever.

No one can predict it.

Hence the advice, whenever you get the chance to s-off an HTC, never wait.

Latest s-off method is a walk in the park compared to the first method I used.

No telling what the next one will be like, if there is one.

Thanks for the ongoing pep talk and assistance, EM.

I am waiting on a new battery for my Windows 7 laptop, hopefully the update don't drop before then. Lol.

I totally love this phone.

And no, HTCdev.com unlocks the the bootloader, does not give s-off.

We really ought to continue this in the ATR.

Yes and no.

Yes except for different carrier (therefore radios) and we have an SD card. (And although functionally the same as the One X otherwise (therefore software wise), the LTEvo has a more expensive chassis and easier to replace battery than the other One X models. And kickstand fwiw.)

When the others were being said to get nothing more, we were getting pushed out a month.

Notice that AT&T users got 4.1 long after we did, and not all users got the HTCdev.com support we did - so somehow in non-obvious ways, the carrier agreements seem to matter.

HTC has always kept announcements about our phone separate from the sister models.

And it still agrees with the tweet from 2 weeks ago, that 4.3/5 is in the works.

Anyway, we'll see - I don't even know if I'm going to go with the update when it does come.

Really the only think I'm looking for in the update is to have the camera integration 100%.

I love what I'm running now, just seems the camera doesn't work quite as good as it did on ICS / JB. Personal opinion entirely there.

Hate to be a pessimist but the recent One X announcement sours my hope for an update anytime soon, if ever, on this phone. This will be my last HTC phone. My OG Evo was getting updates months ahead of my wife's Galaxy 1 but now the roles have completely reversed with HTC essentially dropping the LTE like it never existed and focusing solely on the One while my wife's S3 has been updated a few times already.

I don't know why they even bother to advertise a phone, market it, sell it, then forget in three to four months.

And this type of trend is becoming extremely common amongst most manufacturer|carrier.

The LTEvo was released 21 months ago.

Until they say otherwise, it's getting a major update at the 22 month mark.

That suggests that the bailing on the HOX is carrier related, something we've seen proven over and over and over again.

But always blamed on the makers (ask the Sammy users who never got updates that Europe did, or some of them 6 months later).

The pullback on the HOX started in Europe, and it was laid at issues with the Tegra 3. Then it spread to the other US carriers.

No idea where the idea is coming from that they're abandoning support after 3 or 4 months.

What's next - blaming them for poor performance by the Easter Bunny?

Oh, yeah! ... I do love dental floss.

Anyway, isn't it kind of strange on how HTC has taken an interest in giving the Evo 4G LTE one more update -- I really appreciate that.

I'm quite sure the owners of the HTC One+ are not pleased to hear that their device won't be getting sense 4.3.

I hope this doesn't deter most people from continue buying HTC devices.

Sprint is actually pretty good for support. The SGS4 got Jellybean first, but in the US, that was on Sprint; those on other carriers had to wait. I can cite lots of examples like that.

Except the 3vo - that's when it all started downhill and then they broke every ICS promise (so I can relate to some healthy pessimism here ok).

And it's definitely flipped around from when HTC updates came first - but not after Samsung started making the Nexus instead of HTC. Funny how that works.

Is it safe to accept the software (4.3) update without performing the burdensome full wipe and reinstalling all apps etc.? I understand that many folk with the Samsung GS4 had major problems after updating to 4.3. Any of that stuff after updating the HTC EVO 4G LTE?

This update won't be an OTA. And it will require a full wipe and reinstall of apps.

Ok, because of the raging misconceptions going around the blog comments out there, especially on Phandroid, I'm going to leave the original partition layout here.

1392596909524.jpg

No, you can not get an Android with just one partition.

No, partitions are not something that happened to this phone only.

Yes, the new update requires application of a special factory image called an RUU to re-size and redo the partitions.

No, they couldn't foresee this 2 years ago.

Yes, if they guessed and made the system partition bigger, it would have meant two years of complaints about less user storage.

Notice how much larger /data is - that's the biggest (and most positive) effect of this update. Well, that and the updated version of Android. Oh yeah, and the updated version of Sense .

At least a few of us are still having a problem with no data roaming after installing the update. Voice roaming is working fine....

There's an additional roaming setting that controls data that's disabled by default. The setting to enable it is hidden.

Dang, when I tried updating it went as far as to restart my phone while it 'waited for bootloader' and then gave me an error saying that there was a problem with the drivers. My phone was stuck on the HTC logo and I thought I may have bricked it but a long press/hold of the power button restarted it.

Any tips? I'm on Windows 8.1

Okay, time for the noob to ask a stupid question.

A lot of people around the net are saying that you must uninstall HTC Sync before you can do the update, but those are the only backups I have for my data.

Do you really have to do that? And if so, does anyone have a suggestion as to how to backup my data?

This will be my first attempt at a RUU sideload, and I'm going to need a little bit of "nursemaiding".

Sorry to sound so dumb. If you'd rather reply via PM, that's fine, too.

I just don't want to brick my phone. I can't afford a new one.

The first thing the program does when you run an RUU (after checking that its the proper device) is reboot the device into bootloader. I remember getting around issues with the RUU a long time ago by manually rebooting into the bootloader.

Also, try running the RUU.EXE file as an administrator (right click>run as administrator)

I've never used HTC sync myself, so you'll have to excuse me for the noob questions to follow

How does it store your backups? Would it be possible to copy those somewhere else so that if you uninstall it and reinstall it later you'll still have everything backed up?

What sorts of things do you use it to backup? That can help us recommend alternatives.

Contacts can be automatically backed up by google, photos/files can be transferred to the computer before the RUU and put back into place afterwards.

Since this a progressive RUU, there shouldn't be any issues with firmware mismatches, so we can rule that out.

There can be a number of factors, drivers, HTC Sync, antivirus, even the operating system with the newer windows.

First, I'd delete anything that has HTC from your computer. Plug the device in, and then allow it to reload the drivers. Do not install HTC Sync at this point.

See if the computer recognizes the device by going into your computers Device Manager. It should be shown as "Android USB Devices", with "My HTC" shown under that". Or something similar, since I'm not on a stock rom I can't be 100% sure this is what you'll see.

Temporarily turn your antivirus software off. Sometimes it will see an RUU as malicious software, and block it.

I believe there is a work around for folks with Windows 8.1 that I saw in the Captains thread over at XDA, but I'll need a little while to find it. Once I do, I'll post up a link for it.

Hopefully some these will help yinz out.

Good call EM, forgot about Helium.

Helium will allow non-rooted users to back up things that usually require root access.
