Evo died after applying 6/28 OTA update for the second time.
My Evo appears to have died after applying the OTA update. Here's what happened.
I manually checked for the HTC update, saw it available, and told it to download. Once it was finished, I let it install.
It went through the installation process, eventually rebooted, and all seemed okay. I went ahead and updated my profile and PRL while I was at it.
I decided to check for HTC updates a second time, expecting it to say "No updates found," but it showed an update available. So, I let it download and install again.
This time around, after it automatically rebooted and got to the firmware-updating screen (green arrow in the center of the green), it eventually just turned off. Since then, I have been unable to turn it back on. I have pulled the battery, plugged it in to the computer, plugged in the charger. Nothing elicits any response. The charging LED doesn't even light up.
My Evo was not rooted, although I did have the Unrevoked "app" installed.

This happened to me but was able to get through..
- Pull the battery for a few minutes and do not charge
- If no power on, repeat above a few times until getting power. If no power, fracked.
- After boot, it may stick on the Sprint 4G splash screen. I thought it was hosed here but let it through, may take many minutes.

Theres a thread about this over at androidforums.com about people applying the update twice and bricking their phones.
WARNING! Do NOT reapply the update after updating! - Android Forums
Few guys already had them exchanged at sprint it looks like. Good luck guys!

I am having similar issues, mine is stuck on the updating screen. I plugged it into my laptop and now it is doing something different. Every 60 seconds or so, the screen goes black and then pops the updating image back up again. The laptop recognizes the phone has disconnected, and reconnected, but nothing else. I cannot access the phone from the laptop.
This is telling me that the phone must be caught in a loop mid-upgrade....I think.
I have already tried removing the battery for upwards of 15 minutes at a time.

I received a notification for the OTA update, tapped the Home button by mistake, then wasn't able to get the notification back for me to click on. Does anyone know how to get the notification back so I can download the update? Sprint was no help at all, of course.
