Re: Evo 3D Software Update August !8

I wish they fixed the reception quality ( drop calls, phone is always on roaming, bad 4g recepton) my old touch pro 2 beats this phone hands down on reception.

I wonder if this will patch the root process... Hope the update is good and it doesn't screw with our root.

In case anyone is wondering, If your rooted, you should never do the OTA updates.

Not rooted and just ran update. Update includes 2.3.4 and a new swype keyboard. So far update feels like phone is smoother. Hope camera issue is fixed.
In regards to signal coverage I haven't had any issues since my phone was replaced. Also I use roam control which is awesome.

Re: Evo 3D Software Update August !8

The Update is available now. Just finished it and am extremely happy that HTC has fixed the problem of not being able to access the menu key when an inbound call comes into the phone while the screen is locked. The older Sense version on the EVO 4G allowed this to be done so that you could send a quick text message to the person calling you, instead of answering their call. This came in handy when I was on the phone and received another call, so that I could easily setup a canned text of "Thank you for calling, I am on the phone or busy right now, I will call you back as soon as I can" or something similar. Now I can enjoy my 3D even more!

Edit: I could have swore that this work initially, but now I cannot get it to work, so I guess they did not fix this. bummer.

Re: Evo 3D Software Update August !8

I imagine that it'll break root with the ota. Every ota has broken root before i dunno what would change about this one, I advice anyone that has root just wait for omj to come out with a rom withing hmm lets say 5 hours? I actually havent noticed any of the following issues occur with my 3d..I heard someone say that the phone is much smoother. Ill confirm on this when i see it, right now my 3d is a blaster...im rooted with omj's latest, have a custom kernel RCMIX_3D_kernel, also have changed the proxy and the call volume..cant be much happier. Although i woke up with an error 16 upon my consience lol (costumer care took care of that quick fast). Im officially a geek
