Sprint and HTC have started pushing a minor (yet not unimportant) software update to the HTC Evo 3D. After installation, your Evo 3D should be running version 2.08.651.2.
The update fixes lockscreen hangs, Spiderman demo lockups, the fact that birthdays were one day off between Facebook and the phone’s contacts, also nixes a random GPS coordinates issue, adds the ability to transfer contacts via Bluetooth (seriously, that wasn’t there before?), and the lockscreen now displays 3-digit temperature values correctly. Apps like Spiderman, Watch, and Qik have also received updates. Additionally, more apps have been made uninstallable by the user (meaning you can now easily get rid of more bloatware).
The update is available today if you force your phone to check for it, by going to Settings > System Updates > HTC Software Update > Check Now. If you don’t do that, the update will begin to get pushed to Evo 3D devices on August 23 (that’s the coming Tuesday). Of course, the update may take a few days to reach your particular device, so don’t panic. Or just manually check for it, if you’re anxious.
Needless to say, this is an over-the-air update and you won’t be needing a computer to install it. Happy updating!
