Technically correct but it may take awhile for it to be pushed to your phone. They usually do that in waves which could take a few days.

I'm a noob to this but I am running unrevoked on HTC Evo 4g. I have a pop-up on my phone now asking me to do a "System Upgrade 4.22.651.2 (109.21MB)" is this the update y'all are talking about? How do I go about updating with unrevoked?

FYI I live in the Houston, TX area.

Thanks

No - that is the original GB release that was pushed out a week or so ago. You shouldn't apply this OTA update to your phone if you are rooted. Look for a new rooted ROM that you can apply instead. (I am not rooted, so can't tell you exactly which one)

They seriously need to bake a new batch, because this ginger was stale on delivery. Since this upgrade my voice to text doesn't work, neither does any of my apps that have compass functions. C'mon Google get it together!

Try rebooting (restarting) & if that doesn't work - try pulling battery.
I know after rebooting this AM, it came on for me when I checked for HTC SW updates.

Thanks for the tip but they both do not work. It still keeps asking me if I want the 3.70 updaye and not the 4. something update for gingerbread. Nomunk, aee you sure about that cause I am still on the 3.2 software build and they dont have the timelog on there either. It took that feature off way before gingerbread since I dont have gingerbread and it still doesnt tell me how long I've been on the phone for.

I have had no issues with my phone since the Gingerbread release, and the small maintenance release I got today.

Prior to the GB update I had rooted my phone. When GB wouldn't load on a rooted phone, I reloaded my saved ROM, installed GB and away I went. All downloaded apps work.

For those having issues with trying to get the update, keep pressing the HTC software update option. I had to do this twice today to get the maintenance upgrade and at least three times before the GB upgrade would initialize.

Good luck

See, that is what I am asking about. It isn't just stuck looking for the update nor I am having problems updating anything. Whenever I click on the HTC Software update. What comes up is this.. "A system update is available.. Would you like to download the following system software update? -System Upgrade 3.70.651.1 (58.11MB) - FOTA update. " And that is the only update that keeps coming up, whether I reboot the cell phone, take out the battery and even factory reset the cell.

Still no voice to text And seems like issue only with evo 4g . Closing all apps now makes sense reload white htc screen tried everything. Is htc really paying attention to user issues been almost 2 weeks and no acknowledgement that anything is in the works. And seems like issue only with evo 4g

Be sure to do a factory reset after you have downloaded Gingerbread 2.3.3 with the latest build number 4.24.651.1 Nothing on your SD card will be affected but it will delete all apps you have downloaded. Your Evo 4G will thank you for the reset by turning back into a superfast flawless phone.

The second update to fix netflix broke my ability to set EX Launcher as my default. Does anyone have a workaround? Is rooting the phone the answer?

Resolved. Kind of silly on my part ...
Which Launcher do you prefer?

You're not rooted, are you? Rooted phones don't get the OTA updates like non-rooted phones.

If you're not rooted the first thing you have to do is update your firmware. IIRC you cannot get the Gingerbread update until your firmware is up to date. But everyone on a non-rooted Evo should have gotten he update by now.

No, I am not rooted at all. I am updated as far as I can tell..

Android Version, 2.2
Baseband Version, 2.15.00.09.01
Kernel Version, 2.6.32.15-ge2fb08e
Software Number, 3.29.651.5

System Upgrade, 3.70.651.1

I have never rooted or plan to at all. Will I have to go to Sprint to get the update?

Is this really necessarily a must? Its seems ever since me and my wife updated to the great bread of ginger , it seems almost everytime we exit an app or anything the screen goes with with the green HTC logo and then has the loading rectangle box for a few seconds before the phone can do anything else.

And if I do a factory rest wont the updates go back to out of the box versions?

I finally let Sprint do the update and all related maintenance fixes yesterday. After a few hours of replacing apps and layout, everything is fine except for the same issue you have. Unless I back out screen by screen, I get the HTC logo and a "minor reboot". Other than that, I'm happy with Gingerbread...so far.

Did the factory reset last night and the phone is pure kick a** now. No more HTC screen or minor rebbot after backing out of things anymore and the phone is lightning fast.....

It was a pain in the but DLing all my apps and putting the phone settings back to my liking , but it was well worth it. Going to do the same to my wife's phone tomorrow....

I wouldn't know and it has been 9 months and still NO Gingerbread update on my phone. Does anyone know what I can do or should I just give up and buy a new phone? I hate buying a new phone to get new features but some how I am screwed out of gingerbread with this one.

If you go to Settings -> System Updates -> HTC Software Updates, is the box checked to receive them automatically? Have you tried pressing the "Check Now" button? What happens? If that doesn't work, we can still get you the latest official update .

Default Gingerbread is good

I got my update almost a month ago and it has been good for me.

Until the update, my EVO 4G had started doing some screwy things, like typing all by itself. As I detailed in other posts, I figured there was something seriously wrong with my phone.

Then the OTA update came and seemed to have cleared up my problems.

The only problem I do seem to have is the minor reboots after using the browser for an extended period of time. My guess it is the Android system trying to dump full temporary memory. While it is annoying, it is a minor annoyance.

So for the most part, I do like Gingerbread.

On question, I see everyone saying that a Factory Reset is recommend. Is this something I really need to do ?

I am hesitant to do it because I really do not want to have to reinstall a bunch of my app and redo my current setting.

You should have been on gingerbread well before a month ago. That update came out in like June...


The newest update is still gingerbread, just an updated version of it.
