According to HTC, this is NOT the final build, but I've had it on my phone for about an hour now and have no apparent issues.

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Although this is the EXACT file HTC had up on their website, I do not take responsibility for you screwing up your beautiful EVO.

You the man! Thanks so much!

i'm pretty sure if you don't know how to get a zip file onto your SD card you shouldn't be doing this manually!

Agreed. Just saying it seemed legit given it was from their site, and the version number matched the release info on Sprint's web site. There was almost no reason to question it. Seemed like a no brainer. Just glad I didn't install.

Curious as to what effect this "non-official" update will have with the official update? Will the OTA overwrite or update the zipped version everyones installing today?

Well, it's working for me so far anyway... <keeping fingers crossed>

For those who downloaded and installed already, think we'll still get the "official" OTA alert when it's ready??

to be honest - I am a little disappointed, yes it seems faster and more responsive, flashlight, sharing apps ... all cool. I just don't like the bloatware SENSE. Will root ASAP ... oh, and for some reason I was hoping for vanilla lock ...

Wow. Worst thread merge ever.

Why would you merge a thread that lets folks know NOT to download it with a million merged threads about how it's been "pre-released" and "official"?

So, in case newcomers missed it:

Quote:
Update: HTC just shot us a message to clarify that this is not the final ROM version and that the company is strongly recommending not to install this. Additionally, a request has been put in to remove the file from the server, so if you still want to try at your own risk, better download now while it's still available

See, this is the problem. HTC placed this (what I believe to be final) update on it's servers. It was found and spread on the internet like wildfire. HTC realized their mistake, pulled it, and are now backpedaling, saying "install at you're own risk!" to scare you.

If this "unofficial shady and incomplete" versions bricks phones or prevents the "official" OTA update from working, Sprint & HTC better brace themselves for some angry support calls. Even though users were warned not to install, my gosh human nature and geekiness sure does encourage us to install something that was just on HTC's own servers hours ago.

So, I stand by my opinion that some IT dude put it online too soon and it was found. There is nothing wrong with this version, HTC just wants the roll out to jive with their ever changing "launch date."

This is what happens when the "OMG we have tEh frist launch of FroYo!" announcements go out so early with a footnote that a test version will be available on 7/30. Now they are backpedaling. Just doesn't smell right.

Strange botched launch HTC & Sprint have here. Oops.

Just updated it. Seems to be working fine. Swype is not working.
Also, before the update, I cannot get 4G signal to stay. It would say 4G Signal Found and then will go way in like 15 seconds. Now, the signal stays. SpeedTest showing 3.1M down and 1M up.

Manual download URL is http://97.74.44.48/evo/update.zip

If you look at the original link:

http://liveimage.htc.com/OTA_Supersonic_3.26.651.3-1.47.651.1_releaseu2cqjc2e98n4o6xn.zip

Thats definitely not a public file source.

I understand why you merged the others, but I thought one sticky with a warning heading would have been good. Or at least combine the two in the first post.

Feel free to make that post and I will sticky it and close it so that it doesn't get out of hand. Just pm me when you do.

Figured out the issue. Just name the file " update " on your computer, when transferring to the SD card it will change the name to update.zip

When naming it update.zip on the computer, it was getting transferred as update.zip.zip

I asked HTC on Twitter why we are to believe this version isn't final, as it came from their servers. I attached their response.

I then asked them why, if it's not final, do the version & file numbers match exactly to those on Sprint's EVO site. No response.

Well, whatever the case, I just don't see why they don't release the final version to us geeks who are clamoring for 2.2. I mean, it's a good thing, you know HTC?

Apparently they aren't finished with it. That's kinda scary at the eleventh hour...

YouTube - Android 2.2 on the Evo 4G

Froyo video review. Also if someone has contacts with HTC. Ask them if the people whom already updated will be able to update to the Real OTA update

Why would you merge a thread that lets folks know NOT to download it with a million merged threads about how it's been "pre-released" and "official"?

So, in case newcomers missed it:
Lol I thought I was hallucinating. Wth happened to the thread? I didn't know the threads could be merged like that. Good to know now.

WOW! WAY TO GO HTC! I APPLAUD YOU AND AT THE SAME TIME YOU DISCUSS ME ON HOW YOU TRICKED EVERYONE TO THINK THAT THEY COULD MANUALLY DOWNLOAD THE OTA UPDATE IF THEY DIDN'T WANT TO WAIT.

WAY TO BAIT EVERYONE TO BETA TEST FOR YOU!!!

HTC ENGINEER: "Ok everyone, we have enough beta testers out there. Let's pull the file from the server and let's see what has broken. This way we can release Froyo when we finally havea stable build."

Sorry for you people who jumped the gun on this, but it's not like myself and others on this board didn't forwarn you PLENTY of times! WAIT!

When naming it update.zip on the computer, it was getting transferred as update.zip.zip
my update proceeded, in spite of that message. i had the file named correctly though. checked it in astro ON the card.

This is the reason I'm afraid to update (*bravo, HTC, you successfully scared me*).

I just wish there was more transparency around this whole update release snafu HTC created. They are being quiet on purpose to make people nervous. Well done, but they are the ones who created this mess. I'll remember this.

If I do decide to update and the OTA doesn't work, I'll just visit the Sprint store and act dumb. That or file an insurance claim.

Thanks for your post, I was getting concerned my eyes were failing me in terms of the instructions. After seeing your post, I was good in less than 10 minutes and got the congrads screen.
