yes the update will indeed show up again.
After reading about the update, been thinking bout going back to the evo 3d, since the update has the audio been increased? is it noticeably faster?
You guys better check this out. HTC is monitoring everything you guys do. Not just Google, but HTC as well. It is possible for them to check and report if you are rooted as well
I was just going to ask you how you got this to work as i have tried and it did not work for me, and then I saw your edit at the bottom of your post, maybe we should bombard HTC with emails about this, that is the best way to get things done with them. IMO
No, it is still not working like it did on the original EVO 4G, but then I got to thinking, that in all reality, when the phone is in sleep mode and you get a call you want to ignore, you can simply decline it to send it to voicemail. My thinking is that HTC feels that the only time you should be sending a text message to the caller is when your truely on the phone (which does in fact work) or if you happen to be using your phone in some fashion, when you get an inbound call.
For me, I like the option to be able to control my phone as I wish, and not as HTC thinks I should, but it is what it is.
I reported this to them when GB 2.3 came out and they told me that it would be chagned in a future update, so maybe the squeeky wheel gets the grease so to speak. I am all for everyone reporting this to them if it gets it fixed.
This has been going on for a long time, including with the Evo.
Yet another reason to root - or go to Settings, About phone, Tell HTC and turn it off.
On my Evo 3D, there is no "Tell HTC" option after about phone.
Umm what firmware version are you on??
Depending on the root path taken, the Tell HTC option may not appear.
Note that suggestion was the OR path to being rooted.
I used to have any HTC mirror app before I updated to this latest software version. I used to an app that turned on my front facing camera to make sure I am still looking good. Now it's gone! Is there a way I can get it back? Thanks.

If you still want to use the mirror app go to your search button on your home screen and type in mirror. It will then appear. But for some reason it is not listed in the apps.
Its on my phone.
Ah, danke. Didn't realize that that the rooted update files actually removed this...
A quick report about the shutter sound - I am not rooted, was never rooted. I always had the option to have the shutter sound off, OFF.
After the update I took some photos one night and noticed the shutter sound. I was annoyed and went to look at the option to shut it off and found it gone... that's when I found threads on forum after forum about the missing option after our phone update. I remember that night trying to mute all the sounds in my phone but the camera shutter sound was still there.
Last night I took some photos and the sound was gone. I played with the settings back and forth, setting the volume on and then turning them all off. No matter what I did the sound was gone. Very strange - I prefer it off but without knowing why it came back and is now gone I can't be sure it won't sound off when I don't want it to.
I kind of want to believe what others have suspected, that if you had it OFF BEFORE the update, it retained that setting unless you used the default option at some point after the update - but again, my sound was always off, came on after the update, and is now gone again.
I tested it about four times this morning and no matter what sound setting I had the shutter sound never returned. However, with the new native screenshot option if the phone is on silent, there is no sound... if I have the volume on the screenshot has the shutter sound. Very inconsistent in terms of the shutter sound with this update...
I wanted to follow up on this for everyones sake. I persisted with requiring email conversation and I reached past my initial contact that said they HAD to call me and got to their escalations team by mail and this is what they had to say on the subject (Excludes my side of the interaction):
It is pretty easy to contact them and get through to them, and the best part is they have a track record of listening to us the end user. So if you are looking to get rid of that pesky shutter sound take a quick minute and send HTC a message regarding it please.
(I'm thinking of breaking this out into a new topic with a poll, if there is no objection from the mods or anyone)
Haha, I just contacted them too about this. I hope enough of us will comment on this to them so that we can get it back.
Wish people would do the same for the sound volume which I have asked many to complain about, I even opened a thread and people have complained over at HTC forum thread I created and still all they say to me is they have not had any complaints about that, I referred them to the thread and they said they do not go to the forums too often.
It is smart of them to put native screenshot onto these phones imo, 1. Because it should've been there in the first place, it's not rocket science and 2. Because it keeps some percentage of people from rooting just to get this feature, and to some degree I am included in that. I <3 to post screenshots and that's my first reason to root. Now I don't really feel like making the effort...yet.
I agree that was a smart move on their part. Afaik this the only Android I know of that does this natively without root. I take screen shots a lot. For example, when I pay a bill on my phone I take a screen shot of the completed transaction with confirmation number and payment details and save it. Believe me, it has come in handy a few times.
If you're rooted you can remove the HTC spyware. I posted how in that thread.
After doing this software update, every single app I've downloaded does not let me move it to the SD card. I've tried 10+ different apps so far. Yes, it can be pure coincidence but I never had this problem until I did the update.
Anyone else having this problem?
ive moved every app i had to the card and had no issues. using a 32 gb sandisk.
are you rooted?
did you do a factory reset?
first post ive seen on this dealing with the update...
good post by Mod Early Mon:
I noticed when I updated the other day that certain apps would not move to the sd card. I think it is the apps that have some data still in internal memory. If you didn't have these apps on the sd card before you updated, you might not be able to move them. Example of what I am talking about is the Equalizer app. I did not have it on my sd card when I updated. The option to move it was removed after the update. I did have it on the sd card when I first downloaded the app and then decided to put on the phone. After update I could not put it back on the sd card. Yesterday I went to the Sprint store to have my phone repaired. They came me another phone . The phone did not have the update on it. I redownloaded the Equalizer app and others and moved them to the sd card. I updated. They are still on the sd card with option of putting them on the phone. The update seems to lock in what you already had on your phone before the update. Just my thoughts. Have you tried removing these apps and then reinstalling them?
can anyone confirm that when you got the update, the audio quality is better then what it was, and that call quality is more clear, or is it the same?
