    Will the EVO V ever "officially" get Jellybean or are the days of 'offical' updates for the EVO V long past over?

    I talked with their customer service a few months ago and asked if the V was getting a jelly bean update and they said they had no plans on updating it.

    Once a device hits around a year or so old, and sees one update, usually its SOL. Minus Nexus devices. So my guess is officially no. Though there are some CM10 ROMs, and they are working on a JB/Sense ROM on XDA.

    You are more likely to meet Jesus than see an official Jellybean update.

    But don't worry, if you root it you can flash an unofficial jellybean rom thanks to G60madman :D.

    The problem is that virgin never updates their devices. HTC won't either, making the chances extremely slim...

    At the moment? Depends. Can you live without sending mms? Do you like vanilla android or sense?

    Right now, maybe not. But there's so many other reasons that makes rooting pretty much essential for me. Number one being able to pwn my phone and install/remove, flash and change anything and everything to my hearts delight. :D
    YMMV. :p

    I seldom use MMS, but if need be, the only ones I text with is family and they all. have email addresses. I can easily send it that way.
    But for right now, I'm wondering how I ever got along without Google Now. And I can even update.

    There has been a fix for MMS. U can send and recieve now. Tested it or myself. Im currently using the ROM and it is GREAT! Im using it as my daily driver! The only thing that doesnt work is 3D. I can easily let go of that! If you need the fix, I am happy to give you the link to it!

    I am shocked that these phones even launched with ICS 4.0

    NEVERMIND JB 4.1

    Lol true. Virgin needs to step it up if they want to compete with Metro as well as other small companies. The other guys really have some good phones nowadays. Anyway I'm just waiting to see how it goes and the best carrier with the best phone will get my monthly monies:)

    I believe we will see jelly bean. I no every body here will say there's no chance or whatever but you no I just think we will idk why I just do. Coming from the Motorola triumph never getting a update that it really deserved that was of course there's no jelly bean it didn't even getting gingerbread but this phone came with ICS so I just think we will...that's just me and my opinion. Until we 3 softwares behind everybody I still believe we will get jelly bean

    Actually the phone came with GB, it was updated to ICS when Virgin started selling it. I've been using Virgin since they were the first prepaid with Android on the Samsung Intercept and to this day 2

    Sorry, after re-reading my post I can see that it wasn't very clear. I was talking about the Intercept being the only Virgin phone to get updated. From Eclair to FroYo. :rolleyes: :D
