HTC officially releases Android 4.3/Sense 5 RUU for HTC EVO 4G LTE to the public

RUU update

We predicted it would happen, confirmed it a few days later, and then explained why it won’t be so bad after all. The Android 4.3/Sense 5 RUU is now available for the HTC EVO 4G LTE for the public, without having to request it from HTC by email and downloading from an obscure file sharing site.

Martin Fichter, one of HTC’s US vice presidents, has posted the link on his Twitter account, and unlike previous RUUs, it looks like this is compatible with any EVO 4G LTE hardware revision in existence. It also appears to be compatible with all versions of Windows 8, fixing previous compatibility issues. There is no mention of this being a public beta, so most of you should feel fairly safe installing this.

The RUU file is 826MB, so make sure you’ve got some time to download and install it – the total process usually takes at least 10-20 minutes. Additionally, you can follow our tips here to back up your data, so you don’t lose anything important.

Update: Here’s the direct download link.
