Manually updated mine this AM. It is a BIG download, recommends using WIFI. Install was lengthy and several periods of apparent non activity (blank screen), however, just leave it alone and it will eventually finish. So far NO issues, but it is still early......
Device(s): Evo Shift 4G - Cyclonic / HP Touchpad - CM7

Be careful with this update, from what I've gathered it includes an updated hboot. (0.99.0000) This could potentially lock down the current root exploit we have. Someone is taking the update and is going to test the rooting process.
For non rooted users this is pretty big update

... and a firmware.zip which contains the following images:
Edit: looks like if you take this update, it will be unlockable through htcdev.com (which I wouldn't recommend as it will void your warranty and they will know... no fooling them with a simple ruu). Still can't confirm if the old root method will work, but its not looking good...

Obviously, taking this update makes you lose root, but I can confirm personally that 1) The bootloader unlock procedure at htcdev is now supported on our phones - fastboot get_oem_identifier (or whatever that command is) pulls a token now and the process completes successfully; and 2) 2.77.651.3 is rootable using the existing 2.3 methods and I just flashed back to 2.76.651.6 without any trouble whatsoever by re-flashing misc.img.
By rooting, misc-ing, and downgrading, HBOOT is returned to 0.98.0001.
Keep in mind, this will void your warranty and it's not the same as achieving s-off.
I can't update anything right now - shows I have voicemail updates, application updates, etc... but they won't install because there is insufficient internal storage space available.
I have moved every single app to the SD card that will allow, uninstalled all but a couple of essential non SD apps, deleted all the data I can find from browser, facebook, etc... can only come up with about 30 MB of internal storage space which apparantly isn't enough.
mine should have been through wi fi.. thats what i have on... all it shows right now is the circle arrows over a phone.. im really starting to hate this phone.. not to mention the once in a while my touch screen doesnt work..
The HTC EVO Shift 4G is an intermediate release in the EVO series. It's a phone aimed at the entry level market and while it may not be as powerful as its predecessor, it's no less deserving of its name. The EVO Shift 4G is essentially Spri... Read More
