5/3 - HTC EVO 4G Software Update - 5.07.651.1

Re: 5/3 - HTC EVO 4G Software Update - 5.07.651.1

So what happened here? I this EVO update a dead issue? No posts here in two weeks. And the link above posted by 14KNIGHT is dead.

This update is not available for me. I reluctantly applied the last update 4.67.651.3 some time ago because

I wanted Carrier IQ gone and have had worse battery performance ever since. Was hoping something would make it better. Seems like there has been a downside to every single incremental EVO update that has come along. Since this original EVO has reached EOL status, I'm guessing we won't see much at all in the way of any new updates from here on out. I'm either going to have to try a root solution or limp along with this phone until the iPhone5 comes out, which is what I'm saving my upgrade for. Even though there are many benefits over iOS, I'm just tired of dealing with the inconsistant and often problematic Android OS updates. Been a Mac guy all my life anyway but never owned an iPhone.

Time to come home.

Same here.  We have two Evo 4G's in the house, and neither have received the update.  I just tried a battery pull, but no go.  I too am hanging on for the next iPhone.  I love Android and the ability to customize it, but right now, I just want a phone that won't freeze and be buggy.  I had a good 3 year run with it, and became a MAC man 4 years ago, so I am ready to merge everything. Good luck with your phone.  If I learn anything I'll let you know.

Anyone have any further info on this?  Still no update for me here in NYC.  Looking foward to freeing up the space... I need that 35MB badly.

Hello, still no news to report, although I would imagine they are somewhere near the end of the rollout phase, which means they may make the update available to all soon. since the timeline was estimated near six weeks from 5/3
