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

The white sceen issue is due to a problem loading HTC Sense on the change over   HTC is aware of this and is working on a resolution for this .

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

I had an EVO and now I am trying out the 3D. A couple quick questions; are we still having the same issue with the white screen and green HTC lettering every once in a while? It seems like it happens after texting. And going to the home screen it just says loading... Very annoying.

Secondly, I notice on the 3D that they don't have the arrows in the text app to move the cursor around? Why not? The EVO got it with Gingerbread. It really is a PIA to text without it.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
