Official Gingerbread update for the HTC EVO 4G is now available

HTC EVO 4G users can now manually download the Android 2.3.3 update.  Sprint will start pushing out update notifications to EVO 4G owners on June 6th, but they are allowing users to trigger the update manually by pressing Menu > Settings > System Updates > HTC Software Update > Check Now > OK > Yes. The update file for the EVO is 110 MB in size, indicating that it does not include any of the new HTC Sense  features found on the HTC Thunderbolt or HTC Inspire 4G.

The Gingerbread update will include a new Downlaods app for easy access to all your downloaded content and should also fix a few random SMS and Gmail issues which has popped up since the EVO’s last update.  Be sure to let us know how the update process goes and how you like the latest build.

Update: Several users are reporting various bugs/hiccups with the update. We’ve heard the gamut here, from individuals stuck on the triangle with exclamation point screen to the update breaking LED notifications, Netflix, and the phone constantly reporting having a voicemail message when one doesn’t exist. Experiencing any of these problems? Let us know in the comments. [via Android Police]
