EVO Froyo Update!!
 

 
We're not certain that this date is going to hold -- things like this have an uncanny tendency to slip at the last possible moment -- but we're at least hopeful to see some internal Sprint communication that they're trying to get the EVO 4G updated to Froyo as soon as tomorrow, July 30. It'd be the perfect way to kick off the weekend, wouldn't it?

Turns out this is no mere 2.2 upgrade, though -- they're making a bunch of changes, too, including a host of new preloaded widgets, a flashlight mode for the camera's LED flash, light-assisted 720p video, and "improvement" to the quality of said video capture (something we specifically complained about in our review). Unfortunately, it looks like the hotspot hack might be sealed off with this update, but that really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

As we said, we're hopefully the date sticks, because Sprint has identified it as a "high priority for competitive reasons" -- in other words, these guys must be feeling the Droid heat -- but the PR is apparently going to identify the week of August 1 as the first push, so the devices getting the OTA tomorrow might just be a very small, select group to ensure that nothing spectacularly bad happens. We're pulling for you, EVO owners.

You know those custom roms never are flawless like the official Rom...this is prof cuz the day the official Rom drops they create a new release of their custom joint each time

And besides if these developers are smart enough to develop source code I wouldnt put it past some of them uploading your sensitive info to their little personal servers

I'll stick to officials

Update: It's been made official! Notifications will go out starting August 3, but Sprint's doing something extremely cool by allowing eager users to opt-in early and grab the download at their choosing. Follow the break for the full press release.

Looks like Tuesday is the offical day

We'll see how long you keep saying that when the next hot Android device rolls out and your updates stop while the custom ROM world keeps going.

And we wil see how long you stay in the custom Rom world once all your email,Facebook, and bank accounts get hacked.

Custom roms don't do s**t but give you a fancy a.ss wallpaper other than that they're usually a baggy piece of s**t compared to stock roms. My evo has flash out the box and thats the only feature I craved...I'm Gucci bruh

If you have root and or wireless tether you don't want to update or you will lose it. FYI. If you don't know what I'm talking, you probably don't have either so don't worry about.

I can use everything on my EVO except 4G and its not even available where I live and please don't knock CM6 unless you have tried it. Its a lot more to it than just fancy wallpapers. If you like to wait on the 'official' release more power to you, but my phone is a lot faster than yours.... I guarantee it

We got 4G down here but honestly its not as fast as I thought it would be....Sprint/Clear needs to add some more bandwidth to those towers.

Using the speed test Android app the fastest I've gotten was 3.73Mbps down and 1.39 Mbps up

Yall hold it down with the custom roms and do yall thang, I'm hitting the htc update button every 30 mins hoping it'll give me the froyo update

Yeah I will let yall know if it does.

I live in Greensboro and i went to Raleigh last week and 4G wasn't any faster down there either. I havent been to Charlotte since I've had my Evo, what do your speeds look like?

I think Charlotte is ahead of everywhere else , I work for TWC and I know yall started rolling out Docsis 3.0 and we're still 1.1 up here :(
