    Don't update that EVO - Some getting bricked!


    As we posted earlier Sprint was doing some OTA updates to the HTC EVO 4G, but the update has now been pulled. Apparently it was bricking some phones, so until they are able to rectify the situation we would not advise updating your phones.

    Sprint has the following to say:

    Did anyone get this update? Working good or not working? Let us know in the comments.

    Got the update earlier and no problem. It did take a while and the phone rebooted several times. I just let it run its course and no issues. Have to say though if i seen the warning before the update i would have waited.

    I was just at Sprint communities and it appears that it has been a world wide problem and have stopped the updates .
    So everybody thought it was hard to get an EVO before wait till they have to replace all those bricked phones WOW !!!

    One other thing i have an app called paint joy that i used to show me the grounding problem. The whole top half of my screen would not respond to touch while sitting on my bed (non issue) but holding the phone in one hand gave me touch response on the whole screen. After the update the phone works in hand or not very well. On the other hand my shoot me app dont work any more
