EVO 3D pre-launch update

It's not the strangest thing in the world to see an unreleased phone get a pre-launch update -- think way back to the Motorola Droid X -- and the Sprint EVO 3D is the latest to do so. Software version 1.13.651.7 will bring a fix for "Calendar entries in certain formats force close while editing." Important, indeed.

Oh, and look at that. Our review unit's already got the update. It's a sizable 26.59MB and installed with nary a problem. More in the link below, if you're interested.

Does this update unlock the bootloader?

themuffinman says:

Would be nice if it did. What kind of calender bug requires an update this size anyway?

I downloaded the update and checked...it seems as though it updates the bootloader from 1.30.0000 to version 1.40.0000, but it still says "signedbyaa"...

Does that 26.59MB take away from the 1GB of RAM or the 4GB internal storage?

Nah just an overwrite of existing data.

Phil, can you check to make sure there is still less lag than the Sensation? The Desire HD's Gingerbread leak ran extremely smooth, but the surfaceflinger libraries were updated in the official Gingerbread release which caused everything to seem choppy like the Sensation. After that experience with the Desire HD, I have no doubt that the difference in smoothness between the Sensation and 3D is caused by software. Here's a thread on xda for a little more proof that the issue, like it did with the Desire HD, likely lies in software: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1058921

HTC's calendar always seems to have odd bugs like this... They've fixed like three of them on the EVO over the last year (some were introduced thru updates). Glad they're getting to it quickly tho.

Wait, the bootloader is still locked? I thought they were unlocking it? I'm picking mine up tomorrow. I hope I don't have to wait long to root it.
