    After rooting how would one go about uninstalling this software?
    Apps like Root Explorer or Titanium Backup should be able to delete any bloat apps you don't want.

    not 100% sure but i think you should be ok as long as you are at least connected to the internet via WIFI. the EVO MAY need to talk to the Sprint servers during the update process so i would make sure you're connected.

    maybe delete the update from your SD card using Astro and then try to re-download the entire update and then try to install?

    not sure yet - i'll get a better feel for this tomorrow after a full work day. my EVO UI does seem snappier, crisper, and faster though.

    I am also having garbled audio problems with the update... some streaming audio programs refuse to work including Sirius radio and Xii Live... Winamp works, but with garbled audio... HELP! anyone fix this?




    I just installed the update and now I am having problems with audio streaming. I was listening to streaming audio via shoutcast prior to the update and it was working clear and fine. After the update, went back to the same shoutcast station and there are all kinds of interference and "bubbly" noises going on. I've tried a few different apps and different stations, all with the same result. Anybody else having problems like that?

    I would suggest not updating if you use streaming applications such as XiiaLive since this update introduced some issues with streaming... I think Sprint is behind this streaming restriction...

    I'm running the 3.29651.5, rooted of course. I have no complaints. So should I update or wait?

    I decided not to update due to a lot of complaints I've been hearing, and not just from a few folks on this forum.

    I'm gettign the update, it starts installing, and then goes to the triangle-exclamation mark. I then have to remove the battery to get it off of that. I tried it three times, letting it sit for 3 hours the last time before removing the battery.

    Any ideas? I had unrEVOked 3, but restored the backup I made before installing it. I do have HBoot.

    Maybe I need to un-unrevoked.
    ----------------------------------------
    OK, I did the cache wipe, factory reset, restored a backup from pre-unrevoked. I still have the S-off at the top of the boot screen, so that means I still have unrevoked? I got the triangle again, too. Maybe I just don't do this update.

    Nope, I didn't get it yet, but I think it's my phone. It still sits and spins on 'checking' after I do a manual check for HTC software update. Grrr...

    Everything I have read sounds like I need to do a hard reset, but I'm waiting until after the holidays. Plus, losing the streaming doesn't sound like a good thing, lol, there's bound to be a fix coming soon for something that important. Right? Right!? (lol)

    I would recommend unrooting your phone then doing it, or waiting for the rooted version of this update to become available; or, forget the update altogether. That's what I did primarily because so many people have said this update messes up badly their video and audio streaming.

    Definitely enjoying my tunein radio stream as I respond to this thread. Maybe a full erase weighs help, although it shouldn't b necessary...just verifying that at least someone is streaming w/o issue.

    About the full erase, I just wanna recommend this move. Having my device for six months, my tests were showing slower quadrant speeds than a standard evo and was just above the Galaxy S series. Now w/ the update I'm running only slower than the Nexus 2.2 standard...great optimization if the background is clean I guess, and I assume I'll have some improved battery life. Yay!
    Well I hate to disappoint but tunein radio is the only streaming radio app that still works...and def not the best of em

    So I'm new to this forum but have done a decent amount of reading around. Anyways, I haven't rooted yet (regretfully), and d/loaded the latest OTA (regretfully), and after doing so, am experiencing certain problems the have just about made the phone useless as far as my standards go. I can't stream from my favorite radio apps, my 3g coverage has gone to shi in areas that it used to perform top notch to the point that it even switches to roaming in the area I spend the majority of my on phone time in (the same area where I consistently had 4-5 bars pre-OTA) & is almost unbearable to even browse the web w/, and I've got a mystery "big brother" HTC loggers app along w other waste of space apps. First, is there ANY way to rollback to the previous OTA 3.29 (I have hardware 0003) and any way that I can root now that I've made such a dummy move update w/o reading into it first. Any help would be appreciated!

    In any text entry area (such as a text message) tap and hold the area that you would enter text. An option will pop up and you should choose input method then swype.

    Like many I am a little annoyed about the beta swype issue and my battery life has seemed to tank lately ... still not going to complain though

    Anyone else experiencing a major change in battery life after the update? I went from 12-16hrs life on light use, mostly texting, push exchange email, a light surfing to tqake the phone of its charger at 7am and only 25% battery life left by 11am. Anyone else?

    Well, perhaps I won't tell anyone here that after speaking to a supervisor at Sprint on an issue, I was told that this update is, in fact, causing major problems. It also doesn't appear that they think there's much they can do about it either.
