    No Evo 3D =( I'm not surprised, but I'm sad. I originally bought a HTC because of how good they were with updates, and buying a "flashship" phone I was certain my Evo3D would get good update support.

    Also note that the Rezound & Sensation are not on the list. =( In my opinion, this is a pretty big deal. These phones were marketed on their Carriers as flashship devices. I'm not the type to complain but I'm really disappointed in HTC over this.

    the 3D is retired/obsolete, as in no more support. i would be surprised if they DID have it setup for the update.

    I would be surprised as well. I was actually surprised we got ICS honestly. I am grateful for that but still disappointed we are not gonna get JB =\

    Do you know any good JB ROMs for the Evo3D?

    I have HBOOT 1.58.0000 I just found out. :( I don't want to get too off-topic though, so I'll post in the Root forum. =) Thank you for the recommendation.

    Well, to be fair, if you look at that list. It is all 2012 handsets. If I remember correctly, HTC stated they would be figuring out what 2012 handsets will get Jelly Bean updates first. THEN, they will start looking at "older" devices, like 2011 handsets, and see which of those, if any, would get Jelly Bean.

    I will not hold my breath that the Sprint HTC EVO 3D will get the update though. Sprint and HTC swept it under the carpet pretty quickly. Also, it is a Wi-Max handset and Sprint wants Wi-Max to continue to be downplayed from here on in. So, I guess at best, there might be a slim chance of it happening.
