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]

    Mine is just finishing up the install now, fingers crossed!

      Expect lots of serious bugs and reboots….its android. Additionly, gingerbread is already obsolete which adds to the fragmentation disaster!

            Brings new meaning to the term “ball gag”. But anyway…these are usually signs of a failed flash. It’s why I disconnected my service and put a custom ROM on.

      I have the Evo 4G. I use Handcent for my texting. The LED notification is no longer working. I have read all of the posts on this page and no one seems to know how to fix it. I turned off the stock sms notifications and still nothing. Ive rebooted 2 times. Anyone know of anything?

      • http://Website yaya

        I am also using handcent and I am having the same issue.. Please fix :(

        • http://Website TheStock

          HandcentSMS – Orange LED stopped working on new arrival. Tried LightFlow.. nothing works.
          VoiceSearch – inconsistent and unreliable now.
          Tried reinstalling both. Nothing fixed.

          • Erica

            Same issue. Swype slower. Facebook app consistently won’t retrieve notifications or load anything. Handcent double click to change a word blocked by a new copy cut paste box from update. Also, hardly any working memory with new update. I demand they fix it! I don’t pay this much for a broken phone.

      • http://Website Tiffany

        Mine doesn’t work either, driving me crazy.

      • SO

        I have a similar problem. Used Handcent, got double voicemail notifications and then it suddenly started sending me text messages when I get a voicemail. I uninstalled Handcent and now my regular voicemail app is completely broken. I do not receive voicemail anymore through the stock voicemail app. I have no idea how to fix this. Can I downgrade to the previous version?

    • http://www.vasilys.com Vasily

      I tried so many times to upgrade to gingerbread and I get the triangle with the exclaimation point and the screen freezes there…..

      • craig divine

        I get the same problem is there a third party ap that can help with this update.

        • Courtney

          Same. I’ve tried it four times with same triangle and exclamation screen.

    holy crap doing it now

    Cleared VM icon, no issues with gmail. VM icon hasn’t come back. No other problems at all.

    • http://Website Rob C

      How did you clear the voice mail icon?

      • http://Website bleed green

        Rob, try a PRL update. Mine has now been gone for two days.

        • http://Website andrew

          yeah im having the same voicemail icon problem too. it says i have 3 new voicemails. I tried updating the PRL and a message comes up saying that the PRL could not be updated (error code 1012)

  • http://Website phil

    Live backgrounds freeze when I unlock the screen, most often happens with water.

  • http://www.3for.tv Greg

    Once it finished updating, My phone was constantly rebooting/sprint startup screen. I had to hard reset:

    (Hold power and volume down) to make it work again… but lost EVERYTHING. Guess I needed a fresh start anyway…

    • http://Website Mark

      quod erat demonstrandum

    • Mr. Lowe

      THIS is my problem as well. My phone can’t seem to stop rebooting. When it gets to the home screen, it turns off and reboots again. I have to hard reset, clear cache, and totally reset the phone, re-enter everything (mail accounts, profile info, etc), restore my apps…and a day or so later, it will do it all over again.

      This time, I’m trying a hard reset, TURNING OFF THE AUTOMATIC UPDATE feature in the “System Update” menu (under Settings). We’ll see what happens then.

      • K

        Factory resets don’t work – problem (auto shutdown, reboot loop) continue. I’ve gone through three complete factory resets to no avail. Off to the store tomorrow…

        I loved my Inspire – right up until this “upgrade”.

  • http://Website Stephen

    Installed, do not see any problems. Not noticing anything major, which is expected. When I got an email, the notification in the notification bar is the default icon. Closing out of an app has a fade effect back to the home screen.

  • http://Website mark

    Did the update no probs.

    Good:
    - selecting text is much easier!
    - space indicator in the app section is nice
    - come with a restart button now!
    - comes with telenave

    Bad:
    - telenav is so slow and lane feature is a monthly fee
    - can’t uninstall the crapware.
    - doesn’t come with Google talk with video.

    That is what I found so far.

    • http://Website Stephen

      Yah no 2.3.4 with Google Video Chat leaves MUCH to be desired. First time I ever really feel the want to root this thing to get 2.3.4.

      • http://Website Doctor Who

        As arnie would say, Do it, do it now!

  • http://Website adam

    Voicemail notification appears after the update and wont go away, really like the restart option now from power button.

    • http://Website Robert Cuppernell

      I am also having problems getting rid of the voice mail notification icon

      • http://Website Anna

        Got the update yesterday and now I also have a “pending voicemail” icon that cannot be removed.
        How did you fix this?
        Thanks!

        • http://Website TEE

          I kept getting the VM notification also. If you go to your settings>call> and tap “Clear Voicemail Notification” it should go away.

          • http://twitter.com/vitaminjeff vitaminjeff

            Thanks so much for the tip TEE! The phantom voicemail notification was driving me crazy!

          • http://Website WillRM

            For the record, I cleared the notification MANY times using the “Clear Voicemail notification” which worked — but then after a seemingly random period, a new notification would appear (with not message of course).

          • http://Website jacob

            Guys to remove the voicemail notifacation go to settings, call, then clear voicemail notification. Worked for me after update for my EVO. Good luck.

          • Abhijeet Joshi

            Thanks a ton for the tip. It was driving me crazy too. Does anybody know why SIPDroid doesn’t work on HTC sensation? Is it the locked bootloader?

          • telo62

            My “Clear Voicemail Notification” area is greyed out so there is nothing to tap on. This used to work on the older version but now…nuthin’.

            Still have my VM Notification…

  • http://Website E

    Jus did it on mines I like the fade effect no problems at all just wish I had the app that I opened on the notification bar

    • http://Website AnthonyRyan

      Updated my brother’s evo to gingerbread yesterday morning and no problems at all no vm icons nothing.. I guess he’s one of the lucky ones

  • http://Website bjhoppy

    Netflix won’t play. Only issue so far.

  • http://Website Nick

    The Netflix issue is most likely due to Nexflix hard coding the app to work with specific handsets. If you’re having issues with it, be sure to leave a comment on the Android Market so that the Netflix team can update the app to work for the EVO again.

  • http://Website palopezneri

    Netflix don’t work…:(

    • http://Website Greg

      Remove netflix and then reinstall it to see if that fixes it.

      • http://Website Doctor Who

        Netflix is no longer available in the market on my pnhone.

        • http://Website jay

          Same here Netflix dosent work uninstalled an its not in the app market

  • http://Website Nicholas

    Turning off internet is no longer an option when holding down power…

  • http://Website Janson

    It’s a long install and reboot, but everything works well. Some of the notifications have better graphic design. I like the new Sense animations.

    Netflix is definitely busted. Evo 4G with 2.3 is not listed as supported on the Netflix Android market page, which kind of sucks, but must be a temporary condition.

  • http://Website Anonymous

    I met with my HTC rep the other day and he told me that the MyTouch 4g, G2 and Inspire 4g are all getting the Gingerbread update over the next couple weeks.

      Are you sure about the inspire getting gingerbread?!?!

  • http://Website thom tuttle

    So not diggin this new update. I’ve got the voicemail icon…and no voicemails. It also messed-up some of my fav apps

    • http://Website Robert Cuppernell

      I can’t get rid of this voice mail icon either. Driving me nuts!

  • http://Website Richard Yarrell

    I woke up to the gingerbread update this morning at 6am. There is many great differences the flip clock now flips correctly, the gingerbread keyboard is totally the best keyboard ever, the fast boat feature is slamming, the text is more crisp espically in the browser and sending of texts, and the browser in general works with much more fluidity. The install was very fluid inside of 10mins I was up and runing and the battery management is so much better when you go to settings and runing services you can better control all the processes. I am very pleased with this update. I have had no related problems or issues.

    • http://Website Grimdeath

      How did you get the stock Keyboard? All I see is the Sense Keyboard, Swype, and my newly installed SwiftKey X Beta keyboard.

      • http://Website Da Beast

        He probably downloaded it from the market just like anybody else that has it on their Evo because the GB keyboard is in the 2.3.4 update with the new sense.

          all

  • http://Website Joshua

    I cant get the update to trigger on mine…..HELP!!!!

    • http://Website DROID Sam

      A few people have reported that switching the WiFi and then back to 3G/4G can fix this issue. Also, you might want to try manually changing the date in your settings. Sprint’s update system is a bit weird. That last trick worked for the first few updates that Sprint rolled out.

    • http://Website bleed green

      Yes, turning OFF WiFi will trigger the update. Then you can turn WiFi back on for the download.

  • http://Website Julio E

    Netflix not working won’t let me change my home screen I download launcher pro and can’t see it on the app drawer .

  • http://Website Jeremy

    I dont see any “fade” effects. And how do you clear the voicemail icon??? I’ve tried everything that i know to do.

    • http://Website Nick

      Possible fix: go into Settings -> Call Settings -> Clear Voicemail Notifications. If that works, be sure to let us know.

      • http://Website Jeremy

        SHIZAM! That worked. Thanks!

      • http://Website Rob C

        That worked. Thanks!!

      • http://Website bleed green

        Nick. You d man!

      • http://Website bleed green

        It was worth a try Nick. Comes back after power cycle. We have two EVO’s. One had voice mail during upgrade and has this issue. We cleared all voice mail on the second EVO prior to upgrade and no issue on that one.

  • http://Website Ben

    What about the EVO Shift?

    • Nick Gray

      The EVO Shift’s Gingerbread ROM leaked out a few weeks ago. Based on that, we will probably see Sprint and HTC roll out the Android 2.3.3 update for the EVO Shift in a month or two.

  • http://Website Ivan

    Sprint + HTC= #win. First HTC phone to get gingerbread is the Evo 4G…That is why I’m sticking with Sprint and the Evo line of phones!

      Could have been faster with this update! Like atleast a month ago!

  • http://Website Fawad

    I bought an unlocked Inspire 4G phone and i’m using it on the Rogers network in Canada. I tried to update it from the phone but it keeps telling me that the phone is up-to-date. It’s running Android 2.2.1, How do I update it to 2.3.4 Gingerbread without having to root my phone? Could someone please help me out. Thanks.

    • Nick Gray

      The Inspire 4G Gingerbread update is now yet available. HTC and AT&T will probably be rolling out the update in mid summer.

  • http://Website Axl

    The voicemail icon solution is not as it seems. Whenever I reboot the thing re-appears. I want my visual voicemail :o/

    ALSO, I use Handcent for texting and now everytime I get a text I get notifications from both HTC and Handcent…not cool :o/

    • Nick Gray

      To fix the SMS notification issue, you will need to turn off notification in the HTC SMS app.

      • http://Website Axl

        Thanks for the HTC Messaging fix (I should’ve known better). Now to get this VM issue permanently fixed. Thanks again!

  • http://Website docoverkill

    yes you can clear the vm indicator with the setting function but it keeps coming back over and over. any fix for that.

  • http://Website Brad

    Once it finished updating, My phone was constantly rebooting/sprint startup screen. I had to hard reset:

    (Hold power and volume down) to make it work again… but lost EVERYTHING.

    Also SMS LED no longer works after this “update”, so it seems

  • http://Website Melissa

    I had the voicemail issue which I cleared via settings and it’s stayed gone through a reboot of the phone. What I *can’t* get rid of, and I can’t find any information about it, is that in my notification bar there are now four icons, all the same, that look like little documents with a gear in the top right corner.

    I can’t get rid of them. At all. They don’t seem to MEAN anything either.

    Anyone else have this issue? I have an HTC Evo 4G.

    • http://Website Melissa

      Whoops, the gear bit is on the bottom left of the icons. It’s making me crazy! Does anyone else have this issue?

  • http://Website Belinda

    Does not work on my iPhone 3G! Gingerbread is broken and this crap should be pulled immediately!

    • http://Website facepalm

      oh god i hope this is a troll

  • http://Website Melissa

    Okay, the icon matches “HTC DM”, “File Browser” and some other important services. It’s there times four in my notification bar – HOW CAN I GET RID OF THEM?

    This is making me insane.

  • http://Website Muggs

    This update is a waste of much anticipation. Hardly anything new. My keyboard is the same although selecting txt is no longer a dread. Netflix doesn’t work and they left the Vomitware from the last update on the phone. Pissed. And can’t hard reset. Sense is the same. BOOOOOO!!! I don’t root my phone as to not void it’s warranty & I always break/lose my phone. So middle fingers up to Sprint/Google for this bogus “major” update.

  • http://Website C

    Did update and vm icon will not disappear. Spoke with sprint and they are aware. Only solution they recommended was a hard reset.

  • http://Website C

    Going to call settings and selecting clear vm icon does work. THANKS

    • http://Website Louis

      Thanks for that post on clearing the VM. So simple, made me feel really dumb.

    Just updated –

    Bad news: Netflix is a no go, VM icon is frackin’ annoying and won’t go away…

    Good news: finally got a back space function that is similar to the select text icon when using the keyboard…woo hoo!

    Other things remain to be seen…I’ll have to keep playing with it… I really want to root my phone but I’m sceeerrrddd! I don’t want to break it, lol!

    : )

  • http://NoNetflix Nicole

    Ever since the update, no more netflix… I wonder how long it will be till this is fixed… really frustrating because I pay monthly for netlix and now it doesnt work on my phone… and I used it alot during work… I know thats terrible LOL.
    sucky, very disappointed! The update was supposed to benefit not annoy. Where is my undo button?

    • http://Website bleed green

      I don’t think that is an accident. Blockbuster obviously has deal with Sprint, and Netflix is competition.

      • http://Website Doctor Who

        Where are you getting that idea from?

    • http://Website Deanna

      I think Sprint broke Netflix on purpose. Sprint is the cheapest carrier for unlimited data. I know that I was personally watching like 6 episodes of TV every day at work on Netflix. I bet you that Sprint was losing a TON just in the few short weeks that Netflix was available for the Evo.

      Just my theory…

  • http://Website Dominick

    OK ,,,, heres the total bugs I have found…

    NO NETFLIX….
    LED indicator with the Handcent app NO LONGER WORKS…
    Speech to text was an isssue with the above but turned off and on a few times and it is working again.
    Also… if they are not gonna give us the new sense,,, we should be allowed to turn the existing OFF!!

    • http://crap Nicole

    I updated with the odexed, rooted update from XDA and my LED works fine with Handcent, I can record video in 720 and I have no voice mail indicator stuck on. I have an Evo I got on day one, maybe that is why I’m not having issues. I keep testing stuff because I keep reading about all of the issues. Weird.

    • http://Website Kevin C

      Yeah, I think the ones with a smooth upgrade don’t have anything to post about.

      I have not had any if the problems I saw posted. I do have one minor annoyance: the more aggressive memory clearing keeps kicking the HTC launcher out while I’m doing other stuff, and it takes a long time just saying “loading” when I hit home. I haven’t seen others post this, so maybe just one particular widget is slowing me down.

    Updated with no problems other than Shootme screen capture app no longer works on non-rooted Evo. On startup it says it needs root access. Reinstalled & still won’t work. Android should come with screen capture built in! Definitely notice faster game performance. Miss the silent sound option on the old shutdown screen. Don’t use Netflix so no report on that. This is not a major update. Battery life is greatly improved, so for that alone it is worth the update. Text selection improved, but still needs more improvement.

    I’m waiting until Monday to see if Sprints pulls this update. I just started using my Netflix app, so I could miss it for a little awhile if we’re talking improved battery life. I was considering the 3D now that I see they are jerking us by not improving Sense on the original, I might hold off another month or so to weigh more options.

    • http://Website Scott

      This happened to me tonight. Any fixes to this problem yet? This really pisses me off. My phone is stuck in this loop. The ony fix i found on the internet was to hold down the search button and type: settings then go to applications and clear the cashe on htc sense. I’m unable to do this because when I push the search button I am only able to do a voice search which goes to the internet or a QR search which opens up a camera app QR Droid.

    I am not getting the voicemail problem, but I am having issues with Kik sending, but not delivering messages. Also, and this is weird, I am intermittently roaming while sitting here at home. I installed the update last night and this didn’t start until about an hour ago – been using the phone for 6 hours this morning, no issues. The triangle pops up and goes away. Right now it has been up for about 5 minutes. I am NOT in a roaming area, WTF?!

      Update your PRL and PROFILE under settings “system updates”. The PRL will ping your tower and your profile..well it will be updated. Should fix that roaming problem.

    On an unrEVOked EVO 4G running 2.2 (baseband 2.15.00.11.19, software 3.70.651.1) I got the update notification. For grins and giggles I tried to apply the update without unrooting, and got the little happy droid with the white triangle and exclamation point.

    So, assuming that was an unhappy upgrade, I simply did a battery pull, and booted into recovery (power / vol down), loaded up the Clockwork Recovery and restored my system from the backup that I performed immediately prior to attempting the update (I’m no dummy…).

    Just booted, and have my happy 2.2 ROM back in business, still rooted, Netflix still working, no silly VM icon, etc. etc.

    I think I’ll hang out here until the brilliant folks at unrEVOked update their amazing product to support the 2.3.x update (and of course, Sprint fixes their (in)compatibility with Netflix, or vice versa, whomever needs to tweak the version check.

    Good luck out there, and happy ROMing.

    Ever since installing the update, have been getting voicemail notification when there is no voicemail (driving me crazy). My son updated his EVO at the same time and no such problem so clearly it’s more than just the update — that is, update alone is not causing the problem. Saw suggestion above to update PRL which I had just completed — so we’ll see if that does the trick.

    Updated to a rooted 2.3.3 two days ago.

    Good:
    Reboots quick
    Starts up after shutdown in less that 20 seconds
    Extra (small) eye candy (like the red and green lines on the answer/ignore “bar?”)

    Bad:
    Random alerts for texts, notifications, download complete (via sounds) – happens in waves
    Voicemail icon
    LED – haven’t seen it on since upgrade – just noticed cause I don’t use the LED much.
    A little less than half the phone calls I make or receive end up starting on speaker for no reason.

    Very frustrating.

    My phone is constantly displaying a low or no storage icon, despite the fact that i have deleted just about all of my apps, and i’m not receiving text messages. Seems like lots of others are having this and similar problems?

    I wish you weren’t forced into doin updates. This Gingerbread update sucks! Why would you take away call duration from the call history option?? Seems like a basic function that people would probably want on their phone. This has been an issue since the upgrade in June 2011, but they apparently are too stupid to fix it.

    Mine is always having that triangle with explanation and I really want to update my phone, what do I do?

  • Marty DeBusman

    I started the update then it froze with a “White Tirangle with a yellow explanation mark and a blue droid?” I pulled the battery, when it restarts it loads then it suddenly shuts down again a goes back to the “White Tirangle with a yellow explanation mark and a blue droid?”.

    I seem to expercing the same problems that others are having. Real quick I have the htc evo 4g and everytime I try to update my phone with the gingerbread update my phone freezes and a white traingle with an explanation mark in the middle comes up. I have been trying this for the past month and I have made no progress. Help would be much appreciated thank you!

    I have tried updating to Gingerbread for a while now. I continue to get the exclamation point and triangle halfway through the installation process.
    For some reason, this phone has a lot of bugs. My stock messenger has a bug that sends messages or shows that they are received in the future (a message sent at 1:30pm Wednesday will show up at that time but be listed on my stock SMS as received at 1:30pm Thursday).

    I have heard this new update has a bunch of bugs in it as well but really, I keep trying to update it because I keep hoping they will come out with a new update that actually works!
    I just re-downloaded it and am waiting for my phone to have enough battery to install. Cross my fingers!
