Reports of bricked handsets force Sprint to pull HTC EVO 4G update

Remember that 1.47.651.1 update for the HTC EVO 4G that we told you about yesterday?  Apparently, Sprint and HTC have pulled it down from their servers due to some technical issues and reports from customers that the update has bricked their precious EVO 4G.

Some users who reported the issue may have been running a modified or unofficial ROM but others have claimed to have issues on the stock build that Sprint rolled out just after the launch of the HTC EVO 4G.  Many HTC EVO owners explained that they installed the update twice (update notification reappeared after the initial update was complete) before their handsets became inoperable.

We haven’t experienced any issues with our EVO 4Gs after the update, but feel free to let us know if your phone is no longer working or if things are simply acting up.

While the vast majority of consumers successfully downloaded and installed the most recent HTC EVO 4G software update, we have received a handful of reports from customers having some issues with the update. In light of this, HTC and Sprint have decided to temporarily halt distribution of this software release until we can investigate further. We expect to be able to resume software updates shortly.Sprint Customer Service
