New Update For Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G LTE

After the firmware update that the AT&T HTC One X got earlier this month that cleans up that dreaded three-dot menu bar on the very bottom of the screen, a very similar update has been coming for the HTC EVO 4G LTE on the Sprint network. This “system enhancement update” sits around 171.81 mb in size, and will deal with the menu problems that the handset has been experiencing.

If the “dreaded” bottom menu bar takes up way to much of your screen real estate on your precious HTC EVO 4G LTE, then thank Sprint for releasing this OTA update that is the perfect cure for this issue. This new firmware has a built-in remapping option where it will let you reassign the recent apps button to the menu button, which will them remove that pesky black menu bar in the process if you so choose to go this route.

Not only that, but the firmware update will also be bringing HTC EVO 4G LTE users the latest Sense 4.1 to the handset. Sense 4.1 will help improve the overall performance of the handset, along with providing a fix for the multitasking issues on the device, which I am sure, you all are going to be really, really thankful for.

Since Sprint only just began pushing out this new software update yesterday, it’s most likely going to take a bit for the OTA (Over the Air) update to get to every user that owns the handset. Have you gotten the update yet? If you have, are you enjoying it? Is the addition of Sense 4.1 helping the overall performance of the handset as HTC claimed it would? Most of all, have you tried getting the menu bar off the handset yet? Does it work well or is it another flop?

Let us know in the comments below, we’d love to hear how it’s working out for you!

  1. Installed the update – now all my ringtone are gone except the default. Called Spring – over an hour and supervisor (Anthony) swore that nobody had reported that kind of problem – that I should restart my phone and remove the battery! Restart did not restore my ringtones. Any ideas as to how to remove the fix or return the ringtones? They are assigned on the contact list.

  2. As Brad stated, I’m in the KC market so yes I do get 4G. Before the update it was spotty and would never stay connected for more than 30 seconds. After the update I actually get 4 bars on 4G in my 3rd floor office and can hold it all day!

  3. Sprint only has 4G LTE in selected markets, so depending on where your area of residency is, the 4G LTE service may or may not be available in your area.

  4. You have been getting 4G? Do you ever have it constant? I just did the update, and yes, it seems smoother, but it still does not seem to get 4G.

    I don’t know. I guess I’ll see…

  5. Installed this two days ago on my LTEvo and it’s like I have a new phone. The constant Sense crashes are gone, solid connections to Wifi/3G/4G without all of the flip-flopping between the three, menu remap to the recent apps button is fantastic, overall just a much more smooth operation. My wife has the same phone and she was experiencing even more issues than i was prior to the update, smooth as silk now. Thanks HTC for actually listening to us, this is one of the most powerful phones on the market, now it runs like it is.

  6. The EVO 4G LTE is Sprints name for the HTC One X. So that phone is already released. Sprint chose to stay with the Evo naming convention.

  7. I’ve owned an Evo of every flavor. The Evo LTE is light years ahead of the 4g. Maybe I misunderstand the question. I mean it’s literally twice the phone.

  8. When will the Sprint HTC One X come out? I have the HTC EVO 4G but whats the difference between Evo 4G & the LTE? Also any word of any other HTC Sprint device rolling out soon?

  9. Just got the update download and I see the new tabs option. That is great but I still have the bar at the bottom of the screen? Do I need to do anything special?
