Thought the Fascinate was the only device getting a
super exciting bug-fixing update today? Wrong!
As it turns out, Sprint's just decided to push out updates to not one, but two devices: the infamous HTC EVO 4G, and its slightly older brother, the Hero. The former of those two devices is, according to Sprint's official changelog, getting an update that fixes an issue with multiple GMail Account syncing as well as an issue with calendar event editing... and nothing else.

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. Read More
EVO 4G owners, we have some great news for you today. According to the official Sprint press release that just came out, the Froyo update will be pushed out in waves to your devices starting August 3rd and continuing through the middle of the month.
