Update the software version on your HTC EVO 4G

I have the HTC Evo 4G phone with the 3.29.651.5 software number. I am trying to update my software to 3.70.651.5, but my phone will not update through the HTC software update.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thank you for your assistance.

if your positive there is a update availble you can try a factory reset though that wil wipe all your apps and unsynced contacts...or check that your profile and prl are updaed.

That's the update from earlier this year. It's not new.

@JRODGERS25   I'd take it to a store and let them load it. Sometimes my Evo sees my computer, sometimes it doesn't. I don't know if a hard reset would trigger the over-the-air upgrade again or now. Have you tried checking firmware through settings and getting it OTA?

I have had an EVO since launch day and to me the 3.29.xx.xx verison of software was the best release. If you are on it and have the option to stay on it, i would stay on it.

Srint added more BloatWare and after the 3.70.xx.xx update my device seemed to go down hill. I have also gone back to factory stock and hard reset the device with no luck. I am trying to find a way to take my device back to 3.29.xx.xx

3.70.651.5 was the software update that crashed the streaming functionality of our EVOs! Why would you want to update your EVO with that software? For months now, I've gotten the same runaround that a fix for this fix is in the works. So this along with all the 2.3/2.4 anticipation comes along with this phone. Unfortunately, the tech at Best Buy updated my phone's software for me (without asking me first) prior to handing it to me. It was already with 2.2 but the software version was outdated, hence, he updated it with 3.70.651.5

3.70.651.5? is that a newer version? the last one i recieved was the 3.70.651.1 which is still on my phone. i wonder if the .5 is the fixed version possibly?

not a clue. just tried to update everything and it said no updates available....weird. unless it was a typo and was supposed to be the .1.

either that or its something that has to be pushed through a sprint store which i really hope its not. ive seen enough of them in the last few months lol
