Keeping with its tradition of addressing software issues in a timely fashion, HTC just started pushing out a minor bug-fixing update for the EVO 3D. The update (version number 2.08.651.2) began its rollout this morning and should be available to all EVO 3D owners by 8/23.


This is hardly a game-changing update, but it does iron out some potentially irksome kinks (Update: and brings native screenshots, just like on the European Sensation - just hold the Power button and tap Home!):

Additionally, the Samsung Conquer 4G will be receiving a security patch (EG15) on the day it launches (8/21), so if you're planning on picking one up, be prepared to update it as soon as you take it out of the box.

    The update allows me to take screen shots using Home & Power button. Still trying to find other goodies but liking what I see till now.

  • Joe

    Yeah Evo is on 2.3.4 now

  • Alex

    How does the screen shot work?

    • Ashish Raj

      Press down power button and hit the home button at the same time.
      You'll get a message stating screen shot has been taken. Screen shot gets saved in gallery.

    Hold the power button and tap the Home key. They are saved in the DCIM folder on the SD card.

    Since it makes the preloded applications uninstalable by user, if they have already been uninstalled will that update installe them again? i uninstalled the blockbuster app and a couple of sprint crapware.

    Hmm, I can't get the screen shot to work. Is there a trick to it?

    The worst update ever. My phone is calling people on its own. My third htc product that sucks. Nomore. Getting an Iphone

  • Joe C

    You should. It's a little more user-friendly less chance for user error.
