The regular price of the phone at Sprint.com is $199 after a mail-in rebate, compared to places like Best Buy that will replace the mail-in rebate with an instant one. However, you can get an extra $50 off if you buy it from Sprint.

The Comeback: HTC EVO 4G VS iPhone 4 Parody Video, This Time From Apple's Side (Battery Jokes - Check)

Earlier this morning we posted a hilarious video made by tinywatchproductions depicting an average iPhone user fanboy - the one who mindlessly gobbles up everything Steve and AT&T say and buys every iPhone just because it's an iPhone. Admit it - you know a few people like that.

Now in a comeback video, the same tinywatchproductions came up with a few things an iPhone user could counter with in a conversation with a mindless EVO 4G fan (do those exist?).

HTC EVO 4G Battery-saving, Root-killing OTA Update Re-Released, This Time With The Bricking Feature Turned Off

Though yesterday’s OTA update for the HTC EVO ended abruptly when it was reported that some EVOs were being bricked, it seems that it is now being rolled out once more. The update is a little larger than yesterday’s (30MB vs 23MB), but it seems nothing else has been changed (with the exception of phones not being bricked.)

Just like those who successfully received the update yesterday, users receiving the update today are reporting better battery lives, improved Exchange Active Sync, and, more noticeably, much improved Wi-Fi signal strength.

“Several” 2010 HTC Models Getting Android 2.2 FroYo – Including Desire, Legend, and Wildfire

It’s official: word from HTC is that “several” HTC phones released in 2010 – including the Desire, Legend, and Wildfire – will be getting Android 2.2 (FroYo) “beginning in Q3.” Considering that July is days away, that timetable isn’t too bad, all things considered.

The FroYo update has been the most publicized and anticipated update yet. As I’ve pointed out before, the Android universe is expanding at an unbelievable pace.

EPIC iPhone 4 VS HTC EVO 4G Parody Video [Warning: Foul Language - But So, So Good] #Apple #Fail

I resisted watching it for a long time after seeing it at the top of Reddit but @Eugene_373's tweet finally forced me to:

[Updated: Sprint Pulls The OTA Due To Bricked Phones]. The Promised EVO 4G OTA Update v1.47.651.1 Is Here - Not Froyo, Details Inside

Update #1 11:11AM 6/28/10: Sprint published the official announcement, though only listing the original 3 update points from 4 days ago. Go to the thread and voice your concerns to them if you've bricked your EVO with this update.

Update #2: 6:00PM 6/28/10: Sprint pulled the update because of numerous reports of bricking legitimate unrooted phones. More info as soon as it's available.

If you guys remember, 4 days ago a BGR connection at Sprint leaked information regarding an OTA update for the EVO 4G scheduled to arrive on June 28th and fixing the following issues:

  • Improvements to Wi-Fi performance
  • Exchange Active Sync improvements which include a fix to issue including new account set up, PIN policy usage, and Exchange Server 2010 Calendar Sync
  • Addresses Social Networking Sync issue with Facebook application which can improve battery performance

It looks like he wasn't lying, as a 21.43MB v1.47.651.1 OTA did hit EVO 4G this morning:

The Promised EVO 4G OTA v1.47.651.1 Is Here - Not Froyo

It is currently not known what exactly was changed, although from what I could gather from the comments over at Engadget:

  • 802.11n was indeed enabled
  • the grounding issue that prevented the touchscreen from working when the phone is laid flat was fixed (my EVO definitely suffers from that - take a look at this video around 1:40)
  • the 30fps limit was NOT fixed
  • you can select the resolution for HDMI video out
  • the update reportedly breaks the unrevoked root Edit: confirmed
A whole slew of users is reporting that the update bricked their EVOs.

The crew behind the original easy root for HTC EVO 4G and HTC Hero - unrEVOked - has released unrEVOked2 (UR2) – a tool that lets you replace your phone's (see below for supported models) stock Android recovery with the ClockworkMod recovery. ClockworkMod allows users to create nandroid backups, use custom ROMs, and otherwise customize the phone.

UR2 does not unlock the NAND on the phone permanently - it only does it long enough to install a custom recovery.
