The HTC EVO Update

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
If everyone didn't already know, the Evo now comes with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) and the price has been lowered. But what i don't know is if
the new price is an online/new customer only kinda deal, or if it's in stores as well?

P.S. By "New customer" i mean either an actual new customer or a new plan.

dont like the OTA release of 2.3.3...no root yet. I would get a 2.2(Froyo) and root it and install a rooted rom of gingerbread like CM7 or the EVO DECK roms

Can you still get one with 2.2? And do you know when they will have a root out?

2.3.3 on the HTC EVO 4g is FULL OF BUGS right now. My girlfriend HATES her evo 4G. My 3d is real nice though.

Netflix app not working is a major problem for her, is there any way to revert back?

Do you have to update it, or does it come with 2.3?
Also, back to my original question. Is the price drop an online only deal?

But is the activation fee waived at Radio Shacky? I think I'll wait till December to upgrade to a EVO 4G because maybe by then it'll be FREE!

The store price is the same as online $99.99....i just asked my local sprint store that question yesterday.

Well, as this seems to be the only and appropriate thread, i thought i would ask you guys about the update. First off, do all the new Evos come with 2.3.3 pre-installed or do you have the option not to install it? And if it does come pre installed, is there a way to root it to revert back to Froyo or a different rom?

We just got one without 2.3.3 and made the mistake of taking the leap ... any info on this question?

AFAIK there is no root yet.
