    HTC refuses to confirm or deny the Evo LTE getting Jellybean, so there is really nothing to discuss...

    I still maintain that the 3D is useless as an upgrade speed benchmark. GB to ICS was a major upgrade that requires a lot of work. ICS to JB only adds on to what's already there for the most part, there's no huge programming difference.
    As far as when we'll see it, probably a couple weeks after it rolls out to the One X. I'm still betting that it'll be this year.

    Why does it feel like were asking the CIA for UFO evidence when we ask Sprint/HTC about evo software updates? Its just a stupid phone, not the cure for cancer Sprint/HTC.

    I just heard the reviewer say in the One X+ video review that HTC was going to get the jellybean update out for the one x series shortly after the One X+ launch, so hopefully that would mean the EvoLte would be shortly after.....right???

    I'll believe it when I see it. I also heard that Unicorns fart rainbows. I won't believe that until I see it either. SPRINT/HTC is in no hurry to send this upgrade out. HTC is broke and SPRINT just borrowed a boatload of money. Neither one of them want to expend the resources to update old product. When is the last time a SPRINT phone got an OS upgrade? It's like they're over trying to compete with the SIII and the OneX phones and just want to get on with life. It (the JB upgrade) may happen, but only if it's almost free to do so and they damn sure aren't in any hurry to do so if it costs money.

    There's almost no chance that the EvoLTE won't get the JB upgrade. You said it yourself, HTC and Sprint have both been doing kind of badly money wise, the last thing they want is to generate bad PR by not updating phones, especially phones that are less than 6 months old. So far we've gotten major OTA's a couple weeks after the One X gets them, after all the One X is the more popular flagship so they develop for it first then port it to the Evo as it runs on almost identical hardware. It'll be the same for the JB update, my bet is that they'll roll that out shortly after the One X+ release, which should be in time for the holiday season. Ideally we'll see the update before new years, but I doubt it'll be much longer than that.

    I live in LA and trust me LTE is coming. A few weeks ago I got 4G in Marina Del Rey and just last night I was by Fairfax and Melrose (Near the Grove) and got 4G. When I talked to the sprint rep when I was considering getting a Note 2 she told me the official roll out would be Nov 19th so we shall see!!!!! But on this subject... I'm done with HTC I tried to give them a chance and they keep acting as if this is armature hour. For a smaller company that wants to do well and Joint he Ranks of Samsung and Apple it sure isnt doing itself any favors by not upgrading phones quickly and keeping the bugs out of its phones. I'm pretty sure the EVO LTE is my last HTC phone

    It's because they want to sell One X+'s. If they spent their time worrying about old phone updates no one would upgrade. You should know by now phone companies don't give a crap about you after you buy a phone. Also you should know that with Android phones that unless you have a major bug you won't see many updates. It's been that way with every Android phone that I have had no matter who made it or the carrier.

    I may be wrong but I don't think the one x+ is coming to Sprint, so why would they need to sell more of those than the Evo LTE??

    It's funny how everyone acts like the ƎVOs never get updates. I've had all 3 of them (I don't count that tiny one!) and they get updated like crazy. It isn't always an OS upgrade every time, but they do get updated more frequently than any other device I know of. My wife and kids LGs and Sammys get updated every time there is a solar eclipse, so I'm not complaining at all. We have a OneX. They're getting updated, so will we.

    for the love of God people just root the damn thing I have an original evo type phone for at&t they want you to buy more they will get to it but only when they see fit!! So root and put custom software plus do you know how hard it is to get a proper compilation of the software to hardware where it runs smoothly? Takes time each oasp update is the is configured for the nexus device's hardware meaning hardware acceleration is tuned to that chip set and radios it takes a lot of patients plus once they get the root is optimized then they have to re skin it sigh go talk to developers and ask them and they'll tell you the same thing

    I like periods. And commas sometimes.

    Back on topic though - not everyone wants to root. Not everyone likes to root. Not everyone knows how to root. And just because you root and install a custom ROM doesn't mean everything is going to work great anyway. Cameras don't work, BT stacks are out of whack, cameras work fine but not the flash. LTE won't work because of CDMA drivers, blah blah blah. These boards, as well as the ones over at XDA, are full of bug and glitch reports and all manner of horror stories. I'm not saying that custom ROMs are bad. They're not. Especially if you have some time and patience. They can be fantastic and plain fun to play around with. But if rooting and custom ROMs always solved everything and didn't come with their own issues, then everyone would do it, including the carriers.

    Also, how did you get an OG EVO to run on AT&T?

    It's true that not everybody wants to root, and that's fine. It's also true that acting as if rooting solves everything is as helpful as telling someone to just install Linux to fix their issues with OS X or Windows. However rooting can be a legitimate fix for things and therefore a legitimate suggestion for some things. Also just wanted to point out that all the Sense based ROMs over at xda generally work as well if not better than stock. It's only the CM10 and AOSP ROMs that are having trouble since they have to basically rebuild all the drivers.

    no its the same design basically. same internals for the most part. The same snap dragon, and camera just basically a GSM verient called the inspire. Just no HDMI. I get what your saying I forgot about the cdma part lol Verizon got the same issue.I guess I'm a bit based as I will never own a phone without root. I don't give 2 s about the camera. I have taken one video, and maybe 12 pictures. I don't use blue tooth. I did love the old evo design those I had people I knew let me play with it just had horrible let battery life I wish sprint didn't suck *** here. My sister has a Motorola with sprint but she gets 1 or 2 bars at the house. Otherwise I would switch in a heart beat
