HTC and Sprint unleash Froyo for the HTC EVO 4G
If you havn’t heard, Android 2.2 for the HTC EVO 4G has finally landed. No,m this isn’t another one of those pre-releases that have been floating around for the past few days. There’s no five step process to manually download an install the update either. From your home screen, simply press menu > settings > system updates > firmware update. Your EVO ping the servers to check for the update. Since HTC’s servers are getting slammed right now, it will probably take quite a long time for download the 84.4MB update (we’ve been at if for nearly 20 minutes over Wi-Fi).
Those of you who still get a message saying that there is no system update to install, keep in mind that Sprint is staggering the updates so that their systems don’t crash. If you wait a day of two, you’re turn will come. However, there’s a little tweak you can do if you’re not to keen on waiting. In your phone’s settings, simply change the date to two weeks out and then restart your EVO. Once the phone boots back up, it’ll ping the servers again and find the file to download.
Let us know how the download and install process goes.
