    That is also a possibility. I can't recall which exact apps I had disabled prior to the update but I can tell you that AFTER the update, NO application was disabled.
    Hmm did you do a reset, because the one ones I had selected remained disabled after update.

    A factory reset? No. Now you are making me question what I said earlier. I do have a right to be a bit confused, because I just bought an Evo LTE for someone else and have been configuring that one at the same time when the update hit both of them.

    As I'm driving around, there's a notification pop up that shows drive time to home/work and distance...what is that?

    Was Internet Pass Through Available before? It allows you to use the Internet connection on the computer when you are connected via USB.

    This has been the biggest peeve since the update. How am I supposed to take naughty pics of my lady friends and put them in Vaulty with shutter sounds all over the place !!! -_-
    The reason (I'm assuming, at least) is because of laws in a lot of Asian countries making this mandatory. Rather than making a new version for the US, I'm sure this build of JB will be used across a number different countries, with minor tweaks per device, and changing it for ours is an unnecessary hassle. I remember when camera phones first came out there was a rash of "peeping toms" taking pictures up girls' skirts on crowded subways, etc in Japan. Basically if this is your reason for complaining about the shutter sound, you're just a pervert. It's not a big deal, and most countries have this and it really is more of a privacy protection issue than a "let's annoy our end-user" issue.

    Went back, took it off, then turned it back on (every time requires a pattern, fresh), still acts the same way. I am pressing "cancel" to prevent it from blocking text previews and such... I don't need it THAT secure.

    I guess I will just have to add two more unlocking sessions to my routine every day to set the ringer up and then off. There are far more annoying things out there to deal with than this.


    It has been this way on all EVO's i have owned that i can remember...
    If im not mistaken, this is part of the security feature, for only one scenario i can think... Say someone steals/finds your phone in a public location.. this prevents them from turning off the ringer, so you could for instance call the phone and try to locate it by the sound... or some security features make the phone "scream" to hear it..

    Yes. Funnily enough, the only time I ever used it was to download the JB update.

    You can change your lock screen wallpaper to make it different from your main wallpaper.
    You can block text messages and phone calls.

    I have to make some more corrections to your post. You *CAN* disable Stocks, and Mail (as well as Friend Stream, as I previously noted). I have not tried the others. So far, the only ones I cannot disable that I tried are Sprint Zone (like before the update), Flikr, and FM Radio.
    I did a factory reset after updating so that I could start fresh and avoid any conflicts. I'm willing to bet that has something to do with it, because I definitely can't disable any of those apps

    HTC media link HD performance is buttery smooth with no lag, hiccups, or buffering. I also did media link firmware upgrade. Extremely happy now. Supports 1080p flawlessly.

    This may not be new, but it's the first time I've notice it. Two finger scrolling in the messaging app pops up a window containing the date of the messages.

    In the People app, two finger scrolling pops up the first letter of the name at the top of the screen.

    There is definitely something strange going on. On MY phone many were disabled before the update. However, I have another Evo for my CEO that had never been used yet, had nothing disabled, was updated (by me) and THEN I disabled most of the same apps as on my phone with no problem. I can't keep it all straight in my head, however...

    The pop-up stuff is not new... that happens with scrolling (and is nice). But I don't think I knew about two-finger scrolling as a short cut. Or maybe I did? I am losing my mind...

    It didn't do it before, at least the behavior was different. It's definitely a lot nicer though because the little slider on the right so tiny I often open a contact inadvertently because I can't get to the edge of the screen just right.

    On the camera there is a button on the screen to quick switch to the front camera.
    Love this one. It was such a pain to switch before.

    It's working just fine on my Nexus 4. Maybe it's not on all Skins of Android? What phone do you have?

    Ya know what's even stranger??? When trying to fix my proximity sensor I did 5 hard resets and completely reset my phone up 4 times(yes I am a glutton for punishment lol). Now I cant remember which ones, but there were a couple apps that kept going between letting me disable them, and not letting me do it each time. I know the Flicker for HTC Sense was one for sure.
