    HTC Evo 4G to get firmware update on Monday? | Electronista

    The HTC Evo 4G will soon be receiving its first firmware update, according to a Sprint contact talking today. Due for a release on June 28, the update is said by BGR to improve the handset's Wi-Fi performance, make various Exchange Active Sync enhancements and a social networking sync with Facebook change that mainly improves battery life.
    The Exchange Active Sync changes will fix issues related to setting up a new account, PIN policy usage and Exchange Server 2010 Calendar Sync. HTC's update is not confirmed, but it is very likely as the new handset is due for its first maintenance upgrade

    Hopefully the update will make the wi-fi range better. Have my fingers crossed!

    If this if true it would be nice. It would mean HTC is dedicated to updates for this device.

    Careful folks. I lived through the Hero 2.1 upgrade rumor mess. Not saying this isn't true, but if it doesn't land on Monday - don't get mad. I'm sure they are working on this or they wouldn't have at least said it. Especially right now given the iPhone4 problems surfacing that, in my opinion, trump any issues we've had with our EVOs. I think they will do everything in their power to make GREAT face with everyone. :)

    LOVE the EVO! :)

    So, would I have to unroot to take advantage of these changes? Using the Fresh 0.3 ROM right now.

    I'm sure that Toast, and Damage/Trev E will have an update out within a couple of hours of release if it becomes reality.....

    I don't think this will be a new android version. more like a patch.

    we are on 2.1-update1

    if this is true we will move to 2.1-update2

    the software and kernal numbers and so on might change. this would just be like maintenance as the guy said, which is a good thing :). update1 came on the first day remember.
