HTC EVO 4G LTE updated to 1.22.651.3, Google Wallet working

The HTC EVO 4G LTE is receiving an OTA update right now to 1.22.651.3, bringing with it a slew of bug fixes and enhancements. Among the most notable is that Google Wallet is now functioning as it should, allowing users to access the app, add payment cards, and access pre-existing funds.

Other miscellaneous bug improvements include a fix for the time zone issue in which many users were plagued by repeated requests to select their time zone, along with a fix for those random WiFi disconnects that some of you were experiencing.

Here’s the official changelog:

  • Google security updates
  • Wifi disconnect issue
  • Time zone issue
  • Google Wallet fix
  • Side loaded video pause issue
  • Random power cycling issue
  • Pioneer Bluetooth Car Kit connection issu
  • Gallery app crash
  • Calendar reminder (all day even time) issue

Many rooted users are reporting success with Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper, although I am not one of them. So if you are rooted, proceed with caution, or wait until a rooted stock ROM appears.

Also, it appears that this update does include a new HBOOT, so if you were waiting to gain S-OFF, you may want to do that before updating.

Be sure to let us know how the update is treating you, whether you find any new bugs, and what bugs still remain.

[Sprint] Thanks, Daniel, Alexander, and Randy!

    “Random power cycling issue”, I definitely had this one, it was really annoying. I sure hope they fixed it.

    Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper worked like a champ for me. I am using SuperSU. I would say to make sure your apps & binaries are up to date and you delete & recreate your root backup just before accepting the OTA.

      Also, Google Wallet will now open, but it still says “unsupported device” in the banner across the top. Is this an everyone thing, or because I have rooted and/or HTC Unlocked?

        unsupported device means you’re rooted. It will still work, but they want you to know it’s possible for a 3rd party to have replaced the app to grab your CC #.

        However, if a 3rd party stole google wallet and modified it, they probably would remove the “unsupported device” notification.

      For sure? I mean, it won’t get rid of the superuser app but apps that require root are still working? Did you use the HTCDev method?

      Sorry to be skeptical I just haven’t seen any reports of it on xda… would love confirmation.

    This is a fine update, but it becomes discouraging to see phones like the Samsung Epic 4G Touch which was released 2 1/2 months AFTER the EVO 3D to be getting their ICS in the next couple of days and we are still left wanting.

    Wonder if this will have any improvement on the issues with signal strength that have been reported.

    I live in Virginia and the cell service has still been pretty bad since the storms we had 2 weekends ago. Not sure if my issues are because of the phone, the storms or combination of both.

    My EVO 4G gets better data speeds than my LTE.

    I am not rooted, and won’t be rooting for a little while, so I went ahead and downloaded this update. Everything went well. I now can access google wallet, but won’t use it until there are more card options to use instead of the mastercard.
    The one issue I have ben having that was not fixed is the fact that my voicemail notifications do not show up. After the update I called and left a voicemail, and it is not showing up in the notification bar. I was hoping they would fix this as it has never worked for me. I guess I will just have to do without it.

      If you are having issues with your Message Waiting Indicator (MWI), you should call in to Sprint for help. There is a very quick and easy way to resolve this issue…then you will be able to see exactly when you have a voicemail. This will also solve that pesky issue where the MWI is still on the screen LONG after you have checked and cleared your voicemail.

      Trust me…call in to support and they will fix it for you in minutes! ^_^

    Mine didn’t work at first. In addition to downloading the update, you have to install the update. It wasn’t automatic.

    Also, new notifications are nice. You can actually read the notification (text, etc) in the notification bar without stopping what you are doing.

    This is slightly off topic, but you guys are smart. I plan to get this phone soon but was told there’s no way to turn off the 4G antenna, which leaves it constantly searching & draining the battery. Has an update been released for that? I’m in Detroit & there’s no 4G/LTE plans in the near future. Thanks, guys :)

        to turn off the 4g:
        settings->mobile network->Network Mode. Change from LTE/CDMA to CDMA only.

            Anyone, please correct me if I’m wrong, but I hear that leaving the 4G LTE on doesn’t really drain the battery any faster or much faster than when it is off. Perhaps the reason may be that LTE uses the same band as the cell calls. I think both cell and LTE both use the 1900 MHz band, and the phone only uses the 800 MHz band for better building penetration for cell calls. Does anyone have any information on this?

    Anyone know if it changed the settings from the 0.0.0.0 etc for the 3g network? (something a few of us had read about several weeks back to improve speed on the network). You know where you had to get your msid # or the like ?

    Poor battery life is what my biggest issue is right now and i just noticed its a little laggy compared to what it has been, are these the bugs we have to go through when the OTA comes out seems EVO1, EVO 3D, and EVOLTE, all have gone through the same things.

      I had about a day and a half of really bad battery after, then yesterday I unplugged at 6something AM and plugged back in at 11pm and still had 19%.

      This was a day in which I ran Pandora for roughly 3 hours on speaker while I worked.

      Really laggy still though, can’t figure out what that is.

        I’ve RUU-ed back to completely stock, then rooted using HTCdev. I haven’t made any major changes, other than installing a few root-only apps (WiFi Tether, SD Maid, etc.), and I’m still getting the weird WiFi connection issues I told you about before (connected to WiFi, excellent signal, but no data transfer). It usually happens right after connecting to my home network, and lasts anywhere from 10 seconds to 30 minutes; afterwards, data resumes and speeds are where they should be. It’s so weird!

    I downloaded and installed the update. To verify, I went to Settings>About and it shows software version 1.22.651.3 71ORD. I still cannot access Google Wallet. For about 20 min. after I installed the update I was still getting the same error message that Google Wallet is not supported. Just tried it again as I was typing this post and can now access Google Wallet. I’ll try the setup and re-post if I have any issues.
