10/25 - HTC EVO 3D Software Update - 2.08.651.3

Update will not install on my phone.  The update downloads.  Ask if I want to install update,  I accept.  Reboots phone and then goes into a hung screen; black background, triangle with a exclamation markt in middle, and a little blue Android.  Just sits there, nothing happens.

I have to remove my battery and restart, but update never installs.

10/25 - HTC EVO 3D Software Update - 2.08.651.3

I don't know if it is my particular phone or a software issue, but I'm having problems. I will go to the local tech center to see if they can duplicate it and fix it this week.

I have a Seidio desktop docking station and the car mobile dock Sprint sells for my Evo 3d. They worked fine up until sometime last week, I think.

I don't know EXACTLY when the problem began, but in the past couple of weeks I started noticing that my phone didn't charge when it was in either of the docking stations and was in 'docking mode'. In fact, the battery was depleted after hours in the cradle. When I pulled the phone out of either cradle and attached the cable directly to the phone it would charge.

Today I experimented a bit. The same problem was occuring [in both the car dock and the desk dock. So, I plugged my car charger directly to the phone, put it in map mode and observed the battery widget. The battery power level dropped by a percent by the time I got to my destination: about 20 minutes away, give or take.

So, I don't know if it is hardware or software related. It just dawned on me this morning that it could be related to the OTA update. I called Sprint and they couldn't find anything to explain it.

Next stop the Sprint Corporate store for tech support. Arggh!

I am also getting issues with camera as mentioned by jenmariemc.

After the update when I open camera app entire screen goes black. Hardware navigation buttons doesn't work except the Home which exits camera app and takes me to Home.

Did anybody got this issue and resolved ?

I am planning to go to Sprint Store today.

Does anyone know if its possible to revert to 2.08.651.2? I think I have an issue with phone book access to bluetooth devices through PBAP. Before the update my car would show the name of the caller now it doesn't. Makes sense if they increased the security in this update that they would have messed something like that up.

For what it's worth, I checked for updates last night and found this one.  Let it update.  Done.

No ill effects at all that I've found.  Mine also sits overnight in a HTC cradle and mine still works fine.  Camera works fine.  If there seems to be any differece, it's faster and smoother, maybe, but that's not unusual after a reboot.

hmm.. interesting to see different people having different experience for same update

BTW.. I got my phone reset from sprint store, now it's working perfectly. the current firmware version still show's 2.08.651.3.

I have no Idea what they "actually" did in the service room. It took a lot of time though.

One thing I hate is we can't restore the phone as it is after reset. HTC should provide that feature, after all it's their custom UI.

I hate to arrange all those homescreens again.

From what I understand, every update is like this. There always seem to be a few people who get bricked by the update.

Ever since this update installed my battery life has severely degraded.  Anyone else notice this?

It may or may not be related, but I experienced the same thing, with the Android OS running in the background and draining the battery.  I pulled the battery doing the "hard reset" and things are back to normal draining 4-5% per hour.

I am having a smilar issue; however, I am not getting to that screen with the black background and triangle.  When I try to install the update, my phone starts to power-off and resets automatically.  The update never installs.  This was happening on the last update too but during one of my random attempts it started to download instead of powering off?  To be safe, I saved the download file instead of installing it.  Then I installed the zipped file from its location in my phone.   Is there a way to mannually download this update from the internet so that I can avoid this problem?  This constant rebooting is driving me crayz! lol!
