    well it updated. took about 5 minutes. hehehe cute little image of an android getting out of a package.

    Anyhow, I don't notice anything. from what I have read it is supposed to be noticeably different but I see nothing.

    I received this update and the default movie player no longer plays my mp4 movies for some reason. I think there were some hidden changes in this update.

    Sounds like it was a Verizon update. If it says android 2.2 then it was just a carier update.

    It's probably just a carrier company update and not the actual Android OS update.

    My update keeps failing. Could it be because I am rooted?

    My EVO updated and now my battery won't make it half way through the day. With my usage I made it all day, no problem. I don't want block buster and this nova game turning on all the time, how do you get rid of an update?

    I haven't used WiFi on my home network since the Froyo screwed it up. The fist thing I noticed after this latest update was WiFi now works! Hallelujah!!

    How do you check the software/update version on the Evo?

    I was platying around with my wife's old HTC Hero this morning when all of a sudden it wanted to update the software. I decided to what it was all about so I let it do it's thing. After it completed I decided to check the software version, it reads 2.32.***. Is Sprint serious? Gingerbread on this old dinosaur? It has a slower processor than our new LG Optimuses, which supposedly is an entry level phone. You've got to be kidding me........

    I have yet to be asked about updates to GingerBread on the Droid X. I wonder what the hold up is.

    Hi, welcome to the forum. I would recommend you post a thread in the HTC EVO 4G forum. That would be the best place to ask this question.
