Share And Comment

We love it when carriers announce updates. And that’s exactly what Sprint has done. The Android 2.3 Gingerbread update will be available starting tomorrow for the HTC EVO 4G. The actual rollout over-the-air will start on June 6th. However, if you “can’t wait”, users can initiate the upgrade download. How? “To access the update – from the home screen/Menu/Settings/System updates/HTC software Update. This will initiate the upgrade process.”

We can bet a lot of money on users initiating this download and not waiting on the OTA. Be sure to come back and let us know how much you love it. For more information, check out an official note below from Sprint.

HTC EVO™ 4G from Sprint will receive the Android™ 2.3, Gingerbread, update through an over-the-air maintenance release beginning on Monday, June 6.

Sprint will send update notifications to users in waves. The notification will let users know the update is available and provide the simple two-step, over-the-air download instructions.

Users will receive a notification that Android 2.3 is available for download.

Once the user has downloaded the update, they will be prompted to install the update. The user will be notified that their device will be disabled during the installation process. The phone will be ready to use once the process completes.

Can’t Wait Until June 6?

For those who just can’t wait to get Android 2.3, there will be an easy user initiated option to download the upgrade starting on Friday, June 3. To access the update – from the home screen/Menu/Settings/System updates/HTC software Update. This will initiate the upgrade process.

The software release upgrades HTC EVO 4G to Android 2.3, Gingerbread. This version of Android improves download management through the Downloads application, offering the user easy access to any file downloaded from the browser, email or another application. It also fixes the devices ability to stream media through certain applications for the device.

Gingerbread restores HTC EVO 4G’s ability to sync multiple Gmail™ accounts, display email attachments in the email client and fixes battery discharge issues.
