Rooted running PA, any reason why I should give this a go?

it only makes sense, if you like sense

mgianni19 says:

I see what you did there :)

almost installed.... :)

a22matic says:


smdx says:

I can't wait to install and use the new Unicorn(tm) feature!

jarobusa says:

Downloading now... Huge file.

Installing now. I wonder how the servers are holding up.

MrLadoodle says:

Why would they be under any strain, its not like the One X update.

Razgriz24 says:

Too bad it doesn't fix the borken multi-tasking issue. That's what made me give mine back and get the GS3

wmurch3 says:

I thought this was fixed a while ago. I haven't noticed anything big lately with multitasking.

hmmm says:

I think this is because it was blown out of proportion mostly by people who don't have the phone. In every day use it was never really an issue except to a very minority of people who used a ton of apps at the same time. The thing is the minority on the internet can sometimes be the loudest, most outspoken group.

crxssi says:

Quit posting false SPAM.

The "borken" multi-tasking (as you put it) was fixed with the PREVIOUS update. Get a clue and have fun with your plastic, non-Jellybean, poorer screen GS3...

adck9d says:

Hopefully this will solve the contact issues as well. Oh maybe just maybe LTE will come to St. Louis. *Looks for shooting starts*

crxssi says:

I have seen reports that the problems that some people were having with contacts is fixed now. Never had the issues, myself.

Happy for my Htc Evo 4g Lte friends on Sprint.

Erckul says:

+1 this is how you support the community. Well done !

If you are rooted and you take this update you lose root, and there is ZERO gurantee that you can get it back. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

Just curious... How is the Google Now experience?

crxssi says:


gattzzz says:

Where is my One X update?

Bolatw says:

Got it

nfaubert says:

Downloading now

debsawyer says:

Got it! I keep getting an 'ANDROID PROCESS ERROR'.

84guy says:

no freakin expandable notifications? or an i doing it wrong O.o

wmurch3 says:

i just tried it with a text message and it didn't work. I was really looking forward to that.

84guy says:

found out its pinch but still wont work on stock messaging but works on others

sarius07 says:

It works on the stock music app. The new notification is much nicer but can be pinched to go back to the old view with only a pause button. Haven't tested it on anything else yet.

Edit: Okay, I've tested it now with sms and gmail as well. It works for all of them, but sms is definitely bugged. You have to try several times before it expands/shrinks and when it changes the background draws over the notification tray.

zeo2k#AC says:

Camera makes click sound even on silent and vibrate >:-[

Grahaman27 says:

its a law

kinster02 says:

Well, at least I get to try it before I switch to the Note 2 next week but the EVO LTE will still be in the family.

CoolBeit says:

I always hear people hating on Sprint, but they seem to be doing a much beter job with Android updates than any of the other carriers.

crxssi says:

And they always have. Now they just need to freaking speed up the work on the network, damnit!

Bkos17 says:

Updating now. Cant wait to start playing around with it.

adck9d says:

ok found a bug, on my home screen i have folders in which i categorize all of my apps. The top of my screen doesnt register a touch, rather than opening my folder it thinks I am touching the bottom part of the screen.

anyone else experiencing this?

a22matic says:

+1, I noticed that from jump... Before I rebooted, it started working. After rebooting, I'm getting the same thing. Hope this passes... I'll try to create another folder to see if it happens with that. FYI - my folders that are not on my home screen (and in my tray) work just fine.

adck9d says:

Exact same issue with me.

Can't wait for Mikey to update MeanRom.

sarius07 says:

Duplicate Post.

jbozak says:

Hopefully this fixes the recent lag of the stock HTC messaging app. Excited to have google now (it will have it, right?) since I've had it on my nexus 7 for an eternity now.

crxssi says:

I have seen reports that the problems that some people were having with contacts is fixed now. Never had the issues, myself.

sarius07 says:

I hit the button to get more details on the connection optimizer, and when I hit back, it cancelled the process. I don't see anything for it in settings or under All Apps. Anyway to get back to it?

Edit: Finally found it. Settings > Mobile data > Automatic Connections. It was checked by default.

jpsheridan says:

Just got the update in Dallas about 30 Minutes ago.. So now to see what all it fixes and how it performs now. Hope the rest of y'all get it soon. Good Luck!

Duffin says:

Ooh, there are some new skins in the Personalize app. Graphite looks pretty neat.

Eclectech says:

I've got it and I'm so happy! FINALLY!

jimbo says:

If you have appointments in your HTC calendar / agenda, write them down before updating because mine disappeared or were deleted as a result of the update.

Perhaps, hopefully, due to integration with Google calendar.

Update :
After about 20 minutes my previously set calendar appointments Synchronized.
False alarm.

So far so good I think. I think I was the first one to download it too. I was hitting that update button like every 10 minutes!

I'm enjoying JB with no problems...Re-thinking about switching to the GS3

JMLuppino27 says:

anyone else having wi-fi issues?? specifically the phone not recognizing home wi-fi network, says that it is out of range while standing in front of it...any help greatly appreciated...thanks in advance!!

crxssi says:

The fix is to turn off the "DLNA" setting. Seems to not work on some people's home networks (probably due to other devices on that network?)

Most people have no such problems, so it might take a while to figure out exactly what is going on.

Dan Willfong says:

Exact same issue. Always connected flawlessly and automatically before. First time after install i finally had to reboot router and phone saw it. today came home from work and again said not in range, deleted and re-added the network connection on the phone and it found it again... hope this doesn't continue

jonyah says:

Patiently waiting for a rooted version I can install. It's not worth giving up root for.

Divegeek says:

Yay! I'm enjoying it so far

jorgeix says:

installed about 2 hours ago. My phone seems to be working as good as it was before the update. I don't see much new on this update. I just wish they had eliminated any "green" thought sense. Most menus and buttons are blue now, but still there are some green ones, and the battery indicator is still green. Good job HTC, still sprint sucks as there are no signs of LTE in Phoenix.
Non-rooted EVO LTE.

bnrbranding says:

Finally! The only downside to having an Nexus 7 and a non-Nexus phone is knowing what you are missing on your phone. Hopefully Sprint will finish rolling out LTE here soon...

Grahaman27 says:

how about the multitasking? does it still not work?

crxssi says:

??? Multitasking has always worked. It didn't work WELL on the first release of the device, though. But that was fixed in the PREVIOUS update quite a while ago. Where have you been?

fam617 says:

As an N4 owner this makes me laugh...sorry...#snob

bigtank says:

get back to me when you actually have a current gen phone #noLTE=so2011....bOOOsh

spokenwordd says:

LOL I see what you did there...

crxssi says:

Yeah, as an Evo LTE phone owner, your N4 makes me laugh.

Oh, you have no storage and no SD card... LOL!
Oh, you can't use the device on Sprint or Verizon... LOL!
Oh, no kickstand or metal case.... LOL!
Oh, you have no LTE radio.... LOL!

Point: No device meets everyone's needs.

vision63 says:

I like it a lot but where are the cursor arrows on the keyboard. Now you gotta precisely touch between the letters to place the cursor.

Hold down the "," button (left of the space bar) to get to your keyboard settings and enable the arrow cursor keys from there.

vision63 says:

Yea! zacharyzblewski, I man-love you.

crxssi says:

Got it!

Evo LTE rules!!!! (Plus, it got JB *BEFORE* the Galaxy SIII :P )

Mrshades says:

Well, before Big Red. Not before Sprint... my kids S3 got JB a few weeks ago.

crxssi says:


focr6 says:

aww how cute! enjoy yall!

Sent from my Galaxy Note II running JB since oct 27, when my previous S3 got the update as well! :p

As if anyone really cares when you got it. #nolife

eldaino says:

the note shipped with jb. the s3 didnt and stayed on ics almost as long as the evo.

sense>touchwiz imo

Klotz says:

Just realized, if you don't have Lte in your area, be sure to set network mode to CDMA only as this update defaults to search for an Lte network killing your battery.

All of you GN2 & GS3 users can take to comments and go to hell. This is for Team EVO. Let us enjoy it.

Seriously?!!! My phone has sucked rectum ever since I updated! Nothing works as it should! I can no longer connect my phone to my computer and access files on both my memory card and my phone, I keep getting an error that something has unexpectedly stopped, my phone shuts itself off, ALL of my apps force close and this is getting on that last nerve that I reserved for my son's high school years! I absolutely cannot take it and am ready to throw this phone out of my window while driving on I-10! Time to move on and go back to the Galaxy III because this crap SUCKS!!!! Oh and did I mention HTC told me they really cannot fix the problems I'm having because that was the purpose of the update...well if the update is causing my problems...yeah, it's time for me to move around!

mmmx412 says:

i agree! this new update sucks!! my phone has problems all the time now!

I need the download update for rooted please!!
