the evo i got is running ‎3.30.651.3 and i want 3.70.651.1 can i just use an update.zip? and where can i find it?

On your phone:

Menu > Settings > System Updates > Firmware Update

It will search to find any updates, then give you the opportunity to download and install any updates.

I'll have to let someone else answer that as I have no idea...

I don't understand why it doesn't find new firmware. I just got my phone on Thursday and the update worked for me.

Do you know how to manually install an update? Do you know what flashing is?

Otherwise I would stay away from it.

You can only flash ROMs if you have root access and a recovery installed (clockwork or amon_RA). If you have both root and a recovery, the you reboot into recovery, nandroid back up, wipe data/cache/dalvik, then flash the zip. Reboot into updated OS.

If all this sounds foreign to you the you will need to read up on rooting and installing custom ROMs. Both can easily be found on this forum.

You cannot flash a zip unless you are rooted and can boot into recovery. Since you do not have root on your EVO the only way you can update, that I know of, is via the OTA process.

Sorry I wasn't able to help you out, but I have never heard of a manual update process involving a zip file ROM image that doesn't require root. Maybe some of the more experienced guys will respond. Good luck! Hope you get it all figured out.

If your phone is not rooted and you want the 3.70 software you need to run what's called an ruu from a computer. But, if the phone is not bone stock it will fail. I've seen the ruus posted over at xda

Place the PC36IMG.zip file on the root of your SD card. Shut down and turn on into Hboot then flash the PC36IMG from there

Yep, if the phone isn't looking for it, or it doesn't show up, you don't need it, or it's not for your generation of phone. I am now running 3.70.651.1, but it showed up as an OTA. Truthfully, it's just bloatware. I don't notice ANY difference in performance, anywhere.

reboot into recovery mode, Use the volume button to select RECOVERY,Hold the volume up button and press the power button. Choose applysdcard:update.zip. no need for root. idk why you are mentions ROMS
