Default EVO 4G's Android 2.2 update starts trickling out July 30 (official OTA August 3rd)

Interesting to see if this holds. Whether it does or not, we'll be seeing some Froyo soon:

Happy 2.2 Tomorrow, Official!

EVO 4G's Android 2.2 update starts trickling out tomorrow, loads of new features and fixes in store? -- Engadget


It's been made official! Notifications will go out starting August 3, but Sprint's doing something extremely cool by allowing eager users to opt-in early and grab the download at their choosing

So the update will be available to use tomorrow from our phones by going to the check for updates in the settings.

Either way, we are getting it soon...too much buzz going on for it to be otherwise. I'm hoping it is tomorrow 'cuz I predicted it would be out in July...hehehehe.

It says they are letting "client-initiated" downloads be the test bed which means it's likely that we can look for it like we did the brick (I mean first OTA) update. So they are going to see how many bricks they get this time.

I'm sure many of us will be too anxious to wait and will go ahead and try it. I think I might be on that list. I was game planning my root process too. I think I still might wait so I can get the Cyanogen root + Camera Mod if their trick doesn't get it done.

I would love HTC and sprint forever if they knocked out all three birds with one stone.

Froyo #1
Camera (H.264) #2
FPS (distant) #3

Oh, this is good too...it's more than just Froyo:

"Turns out this is no mere 2.2 upgrade, though -- they're making a bunch of changes, too, including a host of new preloaded widgets, a flashlight mode for the camera's LED flash, light-assisted 720p video, and "improvement" to the quality of said video capture (something we specifically complained about in our review).

People did the last OTA update over it and were fine. It just broke root, the problems were only with people that applied it twice.

ok, so this means that the free wifi root thingy wont work anymore right? Or will it just be a matter of time before someone bypasses whatever they are doing to stop it? I was just about to root my EVO but now i dont see a point.

:lmao:

Me too, but everyone convinced me I was wrong.

:lmao: some more -

I told WaSTeLaND he was wrong about August 5, but never told him that sekritly I expected later but was still holding out for July.

The memo says push-out is for 8/1 - and I can live with us being that wrong.

:lmao:

I got a new EVO that had the old firmware 1.32.651.6 and did the 1.47.651.1 OTA update. After the update I was prompted to do it again, and went ahead (despite all the warnings, I wanted to see what would happen anyway) and to my surprise everything worked fine, no issues whatsoever.

I'm curious about this as well. Free wi-fi hotspot was a selling point for me and I'd hate to lose it.

Anyone that's in the know understand how the hack works and if it's just a matter of finding another exploit?

The update was taken down then pushed again after it was fixed.

Yes in the sense that you will lose root.

The wifi tether that's being updated is the built-in $30/mo one that used ot be free on 4G. It'll no-longer be free.

I'm not rooted now and I plan on checkign for this update like a fiend. I'll root it later, I'd rather have Froyo than free (w/root) wifi tether right now.

It took less than 2 months for us EVO ownerts to get froyo.

Sprint ain't wasting any time with its flagship smartphone.

The engadget article notes (in one of the screen shots) that Internet Sharing is being renamed as USB Tethering. I wonder if there are udpates there that will allow free USB Tethering like on Verizon. I can hope.

Has anyone not rooted/ or paying the $30 been able to do either of these two things:

-Use 4g through USB tethering.
-Access Gmail while USB tethering.


I could do neither with easy tether.

Gmail requires use of HTTPS, you need to upgrade to easy tether pro to enable HTTPS pages. Works fine here.

The easiest thing is to do what I am going to do. Wait a day and the devs will have it fixed so we can have it and be rooted.

Or, if you are really worried, can't wait for it and don't want to try it overunrevoked3 (which would likely work but break your root), you can flash back to total stock and then update.

Me, I can wait a day longer. I can't wait for all the "froyo killed my cat" threads.

If you naively believe that past experiences are a guarantee for future performance... you are destined for disaster.

If you don't want a brick, it doesn't hurt to take as many precautions as possible... and keep in mind any testing that is done is most likely done on regular units with stock/OEM Android builds.

OK, let's face it.

The Froyo update for the EVO is now officially old news.

That said, we still have one piece of unfinished business.

There's a new rumor going around that part of the EVO shortage has been the holdback related to this because the next round of retail supply will coming new in the box with Froyo.

And that logjam's about to clear real soon now.

Well that is what Im hoping since Unrevoked isnt a full root. But if need be I will be unrooting and also reverting back from the FPS fix kernel.

Why would you take that chance when Evo's are so hard to come by?
Come to think of it.....why would you take that chance at all?

Although this is exciting news, video recording still seems to be limited to 24 fps -_-

EVO 4G getting Android 2.2, loads of new features and fixes tomorrow? - Engadget Galleries


Even though they mentioned "light-assisted 720p video, and "improvement" to the quality of said video capture"

Let's just hope its much better than now. But "improvement" only because using a light in dark situations screams for solid white people. Flash is too bright. Other than that sweeeeeeeeeeeet.

They already fixed this, so you can try updating all you want and nothing will happen.

Latest EVO 4G update is back online, presumably won't brick your phone this time -- Engadget

Just wait a week and there'll be a rooted version of this OTA ready. Don't go blowing your root access just yet till the devs take a look at what this update is all about.

Come on now, let's not get ahead of ourselves...

I used free WiFi tethering on 4G last Friday and I'm not rooted. Quite frankly I was pretty surprised that it worked.

Jury's still out - check out the next page.

I've gotta believe that the world of superphones is going H.264, just a matter of time.

And if they don't then I will courtesy of Cyanogen.
