The already awesome HTC EVO View 4G just got even better. The official OTA software update to Android 3.2, Honeycomb, is rolling out for View owners across the country right now. The update comes in at a whopping 216.96MB, which is understandable since there's a lot that comes with it. For this reason, you'll probably want to use WiFi when downloading.
There are some things you should know about before accepting this update:
- Your homescreen will be reset to the default HTC settings after applying this update.
- Illuminated hardware keys will be disabled since Honeycomb already includes corresponding on-screen buttons.
- If you are rooted, proceed with caution: you should only apply this update if your system/app folder is completely returned to stock and you have flashed your stock recovery image (not TWRP or ClockworkMod); otherwise, you will encounter errors.
- Additionally, you will lose root after applying this update. The safest way to update and keep root is to wait for a developer to figure out a way to apply this update without losing root.
Keep checking G&E for more information on this update as we learn more about it.
Update: If you rooted using Revolutionary, definitely hold off on applying this update for now. The new bootloader that's included in this is causing major hiccups that I'm trying to sort out right now.
