They could be waiting until hq opens in kansas, so that should be about 5minutes.

Lately the lack of gingerbread is turning into a famine!!! It is rather exciting and disappointing when you get a new update because you find some great things and some things which were not fixed at all. My hope is for my phone to call and text the right people so it stops getting me in trouble.

Default Gingerbread impressions/tips/problems

Thought it would be a good idea to have a thread specific to those who downloaded and are running Gingerbread now. Mods, close if you think this is redundant.

Well, I can't seem to get Netflix to work over 4G. I'll try it on Wifi when I get a chance.

Now my Evo displays the Voicemail icon in the info bar. I cannot get the symbol to turn off. I have checked my voice mail, and there are no messages. I powered down, nothing,, I did a battery pull to no avail. Very weird....As for any changes,,,nothing drastic...

New shutdown options. Powering down now just seems to put the phone into sleep mode and it wakes up very quickly. The Restart option seems to do more of a shutdown and it takes longer to boot up from there.

Well to say gingerbread is a let down would be an understatement. They shouldnt have even bothered updating the Evo if their gonna do it in such a half ass way. Gingerbread on the Evo looks absolutely nothing like gingerbread on stock google due to sense getting in the way. They didnt update sense at all from what I can see. And all of the cool features of gingerbread were not included, especially the one when you hit the button to turn off the screen and it makes that cool animation like a tv is shutting off.. its completely missing as is many other features

Slice,
You can always use this: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.katecca.screenofflock&feature=more_ from_developer

I'm going to wait to see more reactions before I upgrade. Thanks for all the reports. So far, I've learned that there's no need to hold my breath.

Stock sense clock widget now flips the numbers when it changes time...new 3g icon, new Sprint navigation Icon, and that's all I've found so far.

They also changed the applications setting's page. New UI that also shows how much memory everything is taking up.

Default Mail App fix confirmed

I can confirm the attachment bug in the HTC Mail app seems to have been fixed in the 4.22.651.1 update.

When setting up an Exchange Activesync account in the HTC Mail app (at least while using Gmail set as an Exchange Activesync account). I can download and view the attachment and there is no "Attachment is Corrupt" error. I am also able to foward an email with an attachment from my Inbox. However if I go into the Sent Mail folder and try to forward a previously sent email it does not send and I get the "Unable to Send Email" error.

The HTC Mail app is now at version 2.00.0037.60865. I'm not sure what the version was before the update though.

They specifically said there would not be any Sense updates in this release. Most of the changes are under the hood. New Copy and Paste, a few New System menus (Most Notably under applications), Fast Boot is really nice, HTC clock now flips (not a big deal at all just pointing it out), New Gmail Notification Icon (again no big whoop), it seems faster (seems being key word), New Browser. Again alot of Gingerbread changes are in the API's and the addition of NFC support. We do of course miss out on Vanilla Android UI improvements.

I think someone said it, but now Netflix app loads up but doesn't play the actual videos. It tries to and then goes back to Netflix home page.. That being an app specific incompatibility I imagine we'll see updates rolling out soon. I've tweeted HTC, Netflix, and Sprint.

**Btw it's not playing over 3G, 4G, and WiFi.

My Evo definitely seems snappier. On 2.2.2 it would get sluggish from time to time. So far gingerbread has kept it running smoothly.

That is correct. It does not wipe out your settings, contacts, apps, etc.

Anyone else experiencing this? Defiantly don't want to loose my Netflix.

Anyone tested is it working over 3G/Wifi?

Additionally, the "select text feature" is haywire on Dolphin HD web browser. On the stock browser it works fine but on Dolphin HD when you hit select text it selects the very first word on the entire website, even if it's a link at the top of the page regardless of where you held down the screen at. These are the only two browsers I have so I haven't investigated further. That's disappointing but as with Netflix I expect an update to remedy the issue.

I had quite a few of my icons revert to the default. Also, if you select an icon for an ap that has been uninstalled, you no longer get a message saying the ap isn't installed.

I never updated to 3.70.651.1, so that's the only update showing up for me. Do I have to update to that first and then update to gingerbread? Or has anyone been able to go straight from 3.29.651.5 to 4.22.651.2?

Update successfully installed this morning. Netflix launches, can browse and search, but will not play video. It attempts to launch video, but ultimately bounces back to list. Connected both 3G and WiFi. Have not yet attempted reinstall of Netflix App.

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
my brother just did the OTA update and the only aesthetic difference is the gingerbread 3G symbol at the top...are we missing something? hahah he's kind of disappointed...

Based on reviews here, I never downloaded or installed the 3.70x update. Will this prevent availability of an upgrade to Gingerbread now?
I have the same question... I never downloaded that update either. So will I have to update to that before I can update to Gingerbread?

Didn't see it mentioned, but now if you tap in a text field (i.e. text message) you get a cursor icon that you can select and drag with a magnify glass. Very handy!

also a bunch of app shortcuts display the android icon as opposed to the app icon... the work around is to re-add the apps.

from Sprint Community: 6/3 - HTC EVO Maintenance Release -...
I think many were hoping for some of the Sense 3.0 goodiness.

- SMS are intermittently sent to wrong and seemingly random contact

Have had this happen ... several times. VERY embarassing.


- "Me" instead of "Yo" in SMS thread conversations when set to Spanish

I understand there are a lot of Spanish speaking people using the EVO... kinda funny it's listed second as a "fix".


- Fix for battery discharge issue

Should be good. My battery/indicator has been acting odd at times. We'll see what happens.


- Downloads management- The Downloads application gives the user easy access

Very helpful, actually. Helps to clean up some crap. One thing I don't like is finding random/old/no longer used files when you uninstall an app. Hate that. At least this will pull up a lot (not all) of your downloads. For instance, it's not showing my Gmail Downloaded Attachments.



NETFLIX: BROKEN - Granted, only EVO 2.2 is listed as being supported - NOT 2.3.3. I even uninstalled, shut down (crashed on shut down), removed battery, inserted battery, restarted, installed Netflix, logged in, hit resume, still only plays for a second.

Go to Settings > Call > Clear Voicemail Notification to fix this. A few of us ran in to this issue and this is what fixed it.
