    finallly got mine working. None of the directions stated to go into recovery and then hit volume up and power and hold till the menu comes up saying update from zip. Man like pulling teeth sometimes.

    I know it has been mentioned just above but prior it was not, even on the unrevoked page. gshhhh. All it said was boot into recovery buy power and volume up. Skipping that after that you have to go down to recovery and go into that.

    You've got to hit the UP volume button and the power button at the same time.

    Edit: whoops, reread that, guess you already have. Uh, mine worked immediately... not sure why yours is taking so long.

    Mine took a couple times of doing it and it eventually came up. I got a error message at first and then it worked.

    Here's how to do it using modified PHANDROID instructions;

    Want to upgrade manually yourself?

    1. Download the Android 2.2 firmware for the Evo
    2. Rename the file update.zip and copy it to your microSD card via USB. [Note: make sure the file is named update.zip and not update.zip.zip.] NOTE: must be in the TOP LEVEL directory of the SD card.
    3. Power down your Evo
    4. Hold down the

    Unrooted phone here - downloaded the update, put on my SD card, re-named the file to update.zip via Astro.

    It all went off without a hitch. get into recovery mode, power+ vol up, and choose to update from udpate.zip.

    When it's all done... everything looks exactly the same on my phone.

    I am officially Froyofied. Yahooooo

    For anyone that is scared they will lose all data. You won't and everything should still be there. This was holding me back from making the jump until I just said screw it, and did it anyway.

    Well, it is from the HTC web site. And version number jives with what's on Sprint's site.

    http://liveimage.htc.com/OTA_Supersonic_3.26.651.3-1.47.651.1_releaseu2cqjc2e98n4o6xn.zip

    http://support.sprint.com/support/a...your_HTC_EVO_4G/case-wh164052-20100527-115429

    Version: 3.26.651.3
    Release Date: 7/30/2010

    And makes sense to do it this way. Host it, punch an email out to Devs with warning could mess stuff up. HTC knows the devs will "leak" the link. All of us become testers before the "official" release.

    I follow their instructions:

    I make it as far as selecting Recovery, and then go to a black screen with a picture of a phone with a Red triangle and and exclamation over it. Don't see that in the instructions.

    Ah, wait, if I hold power an new menu shows up now. And gives me the option to update from the SD card's update.zip file. Ok - was getting nervous.

    By the way, on the first boot after the update the screen wasn't shutting off after the timeout. Just rebooted the phone and now it's working.

    Oh, and so far the phone seems to boot MUCH faster than before.

    SO tempted to do this...but at work all night, tethering with EVO is my only internet option...if I screw it up I'm SOL all night. But it doesn't sound complicated.

    Why can't I access CNN.com?

    I want to test flash and every time it loads (halfway) it shuts down and stock browser closes the windows.

    Anyone can access CNN.com?

    This worked for me. I have an UNROOTED Evo. I edited the instructions to show how to get the phone off the phone and triangle correctly. Also, I added some further instructions on checking the right name for the file and what to expect after the yellow typing info.

    THIS PROCESS WILL TAKE ABOUT 15 MINUTES. BE PATIENT FOLKS AND GOOD LUCK!!
