    I think the rash of updates has more to do with the release of android 4.2 than anything specific to our phones.

    Even though I'm rooted and have been running JB (CM10) since early August, I'm still following this closely to see what (if any) improvements the move to JB will bring to Sense.
    What phone does Sprint have that will be on 4.2 that would determine a change within Sprint Zone?

    If it was true, then I would have thought at least one of the 10K would have been a forum reader on xda/ac/etc.


    on the flipside, why would sprint have confirmed to so many people (assuming they are telling the truth)

    I was referring to the rash of updates on all the other apps (I got a lot of updates too), not Sprint Zone specifically. I've noticed that on or about the time any new increment to Android is released, most of the developers on the Play Store will update their apps to ensure compatibility. The Sprint Zone update could very well be a precursor to an OTA, or it may not be. We wouldn't know for sure without a changelog.

    All we have is an alleged screen shot from a "friend," and a few "confirmations" from Sprint CSRs - who we all know are notoriously clueless. Not a word from any "official" channels. Everything is rumor and innuendo until a credible source confirms an actual update on their phone.

    I just searched Twitter for this that tweet. It's legitimate. Update coming today then?


    But who knows. The Sprint tech could just be referring the PRL or Sprint Zone update.

    AND

    Sprint Care‏@sprintcare

    @supermanbren007 I do apologize. The update is to improve the current software on the device. No mention of Jelly Bean being released. *HMS


    Soo... NOT JB.

    REALLY?? That's quite the back pedaling "I do apologize" who writes this stuff? One minute we're getting JB and the next minute there's not even an update ready at all from HTC... How do you F that up?

    Those 3 letters at the end of each tweet indicate who in a large group of sprintcare twitter customer care reps tweeted each message. So, this is probably not much different than talking to someone on the phone.

    I'm still holding out that it's JB. It sounds to me like they acknowledged JB, then had to backtrack because Sprint hasn't officially announced it.

    That's pretty much what I said,,, that I think an update is close because all of updates to my apps.

    I interpret that to mean you think there's an OTA coming from Sprint to update the EVO 4G LTE from Android 4.0.x (ICS) to Android 4.1.x (JB) based on the fact that you've seen several apps updated.

    What I said is completely different. I'm saying that the devs are updating their apps because Google has released Android 4.2 (still JB) to ensure compatibility. NOT because our particular phone may/may not be receiving an update.

    I'm confused about people saying that a lot of their apps are getting updated so there is likely a phone update imminent.

    Aren't Play store apps universal? What does one have to do with the other?
