Keeping a ear out in the EVO community we hope this OTA covers some of more important features you all have requested. Better battery life, NFC, and update to sense. There will be smaller features/fixes included with the OTA as well.
To use NFC will require the purchase of one of these.
Netcom shows off microSD card with integrated NFC goodness (video) -- Engadget
When they come available, but software will be included to support it. Expect further updates from Sprint and Google on EVO 4G and EVO 3D with respect to NFC.
Sense update is modified in order to get gingerbread out to the EVO community in a timely manner. Expect improved performance with sense and h/w web browse express. Cosmetics wise there will be small changes to sense UI.

If any of you have concerns about how this update will affect your root or your ability to root, please see this post over at the All Things Root subforum:

http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/346921-2-3-ota-update-w-rooted-evo.html#post2767714

And keep your eye open for the rooted version of this OTA over there as well. Hint: rooted users will want to flash this and NOT accept the OTA.

I'm curious to know something regarding gingerbread on the Evo. Obviously gingerbread is a very small upgrade from froyo, that being said many of the few new features of gingerbread (mainly aesthetics) dont seem like they will be applied to the Evo. Obviously the new dock won't be seen on the Evo because of sense, but I wonder if sense will also get in the way of other visual improvements. For example, the menu changed from white to black, the notification bar is slightly changed, etc. Also, one of the new features of gingerbread is the new android keyboard, but sense phones don't come with the android keyboard in the first place, so my concern is that the upgrade to gingerbread is already so small, but sense getting in the way of a few features can make it even smaller. Thats why I believe that including an updated version of sense along with the update to gingerbread was so important. Hopefully gingerbread will be well worth the wait.

Just for the record are we once again the first phone to get updated to 2.3 (aside from the nexus one) or did the droid x already beat us to the punch?

Droid X already got it yesterday, a buddy says it sped up his phone noticeably.

It might have been faster to just search the web for this information...
Some of the features that gingerbread is supposed to bring are:
Faster speed.
Better Android battery life
Better application management
An updated user interface (sense will overwrite that)
A new keyboard
Improved cut-and-paste
Easier file management
Better camera management
Near Field Communication (NFC) (EVO won't benefit from it - unless you get a NFC equipped microSD card)
SIP based Internet calling

Hopefully updating to Gingerbread will fix this problem where the Evo can reboot spuriously.

Both are OTA, tomorrow you can get it by checking for upgrades, Monday it will be pushed.

I think that's so early adoptors can provide feedback for any problems so they can address them before the push.

Moved some posts to - NFC possible for Evo?

And also - Unrooted backup to save game state?

They talk about garbage collection and games. Garbage collection is a programmers term that means: make better use of memory while the app is running and don't bloat up memory. It's not just for games.

That in turn (on any computer) tends to make things run a bit snappier.

Hey Early,

Feels good to be back in our "home" forums, eh? Can't believe it's been a year, and now once again, the Evo forums are buzzing because of this update.

Maybe you need to prep a "How to fix Gingerbread" thread! Don't worry, everyone; I only said that to anti-jinx us.

Since it's being reported that "manual" updates will be available by tomorrow, it only takes a few seconds to check if you're up at midnight EST. If you're not up or don't feel like staying up, then you can check first thing when you wake up.

Who says you can't go home again? I hang here a bit, marctronixx is the (often hidden) mod power holding it together here.

I have it from reliable sources for other HTC phones who got the update in Europe already that it's the exact same as How to fix Froyo - therefore, I renamed the thread a few weeks ago in anticipation.

http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-support-troubleshooting/141369-how-fix-froyo-any-rom-update.html

Truth is - if the Dalvik cache gets tangled or stale bits, it'll need a cleaning.

I make the backup/reset/restore part of my normal procedure for any rom swap or update.

For those unfamiliar:

On top of Linux, they added what we call a virtual machine - basically - a computer inside a computer. This is called the Dalvik Virtual Machine or the Dalvik VM.

Android apps are very tiny, relatively speaking. They run inside the Dalvik VM, and rely on tried and true Linux services for the heavy lifting (this is why you can seem to exit your music app, but music is still playing, or why mail continues to download when you're not running mail so far as you know).

The Linux side is fine, hardly changes.

When you upgraded to Froyo, you got new software for your Dalvik VM - but the old Dalvik memory areas are left behind, often corrupted, and not properly cleaned up by the installation.

The factory reset cleans up those stale, tangled, goofed-up, compatible-with-Eclair memory areas.

That makes your apps straighten up and fly right.

And when apps straighten up and fly right, Froyo runs faster and actually uses LESS cpu to run the same apps you've been running - so you should see battery life improve in most cases.

Hope that makes sense.
Substitute any two Android revisions and it's still true.

The update is coming from Sprint servers, their HQ is in Kansas.

Also - as we learned from past updates - we have our calendar and clock - and they have theirs.

Anything before the June 6 push-out will be gravy.

My wife has an unrooted white evo, I got my evo the first day it came out (i am rooted). But its weird because last time sprint pushed out an OTA (the crappy blockbuster,nova update) her phone had the option to upgrade the OTA about 12 hours before mine did....

(I was unrooted at the time of that OTA)

I am dissapoint from that sprint shot, no mention of chat, which means 2.3.3 instead of 2.3.4. The native chat works great in honeycomb, get that chit working on my evo!

Rooted, will wait to see if Myn skins this rom.

if you are rooted.. and you take the ota...


1. you might loose root.
2. you might have software issues.. and not boot or force closes.
3. cant fix because you lost root.. no access to nandroid backups.
4. might have to wait. for a new root method to fix your issues.

so.. wait a short time.. for a dev to bring out a safe ROM.
if you have to have the OTA... find the RUU and unroot and put it back to stock first.

Default Does the 3.70.65.x system upgrade need to be in place to receive the Gingerbread update?

When I click to check for "HTC software update", it still comes back with:
"System Upgrade 3.70.651.1 (58.11 MB) FOTA update" is available. This is the same result I've had for months.

Based on reviews here, I never downloaded or installed the 3.70x update. Will this prevent availability of an upgrade to Gingerbread now?

It very well may prevent that. Same thing happened on the Froyo update - users had to be at the last revision before it would recognize as Froyo-update-able.
