    I notice that the Kindle eReader is included. If I already downloaded the Kindle app from the market, do I have to uninstall it? Will the OTA update overwrite it?

    Could this have anything to do with HTCSense.com?

    Crap. I don't want game demos on my phone that I can't uninstall.

    Rooting is looking even better to me now.

    Wasn't there an app that does root easily? Thought I saw that in the market or on AppBrain.

    Yes. If you are rooted wait until a rooted version of this OTA hits. If you apply this, you will lose root.

    Thanks for the quick response. Now this would just be an update for HTC software. This isn't necessarily updating the Android Version (Froyo) Correct?

    Not to familiar with how android updates work.

    Yes this is an update to the software. Sprint will occasionally push these out to the phone to fix bugs, add programs, etc. But this is still Froyo.

    The info for this update states Hardware versions 0002/0003. Maybe that is the reason some people are either not getting the update or are having trouble installing it. Check your hardware version.

    Try uninstalling the beta, then powering down your phone, then restart. You'll get the intro screen for the HTC keyboard, you can skip that, then open up a text box, long hold it, then select input method, and swype should be there as an option. That's what I did and it worked great.

    Copy/paste from the Sprint Support Site:


    Last Updated: Dec 15, 2010

    Just like your computer, your phone's software needs to be updated periodically to make sure you have all the latest fixes and enhancements to keep it running at optimal performance. Follow the steps below to check your current version and perform any needed updates.

    From Sprint:

    "Team, There has been a new software version released for the Evo, please reference the CE forums for the specific update details. Please understand this is a tiered roll, each device will not be able to update until the unit is eligible for the update. This is to prevent overload of the server. The user will receive a notification when eligible for the update. "

    0003, just checked... for some reason I've always had issues with OTA updates. I get them eventually, but not right away like most.

    Downloading the update now. I'm very excited about getting Swype since I missed the Beta by just a couple of days.

    hardware version 0003 here, still running 3.29.651.5. HTC software update just sits and spins with no feedback. Server may be getting hammered + tiered rollout = sit and spin?
