Well, that was fast, although not entirely unexpected – it seems the official (really this time) update v3.26.651.6-1.47.651.1 (let's call it simply .6) for the HTC EVO 4G is being rolled out as you read this, a whole day early.
As promised, it’s coming over the air - just go to your Settings > System updates and force it through.
If the OTA update is not showing up or if you've opted to install the earlier update last Friday (3.26.651.3-1.47.651.1 - let's just call it .3), then you can try downloading it via this direct link below and follow the steps in Friday's article to install.
We haven't yet had a chance to try installing .6 over .3 manually using the link above.
Have you? Does it work?
- Settings -> Applications -> Installed applications -> All -> Market -> Clear data
- Now start the Market again, and it should be all fixed up
In either case, you're safe, as HTC did mention they would be taking care of the .3 -> .6 situation:
Fortunately, HTC isn’t the only source for Froyo ROM's for the EVO – CM6 has been out for a few weeks now, and Flipz just released his own Froyo build, based on the previously-leaked build mentioned above (which I’m testing now – hands-on coming tomorrow).
EVO owners, let us know what you think of the update in the comments.
