All you Sprint customers still rocking the HTC EVO 4G LTE got some good news last night. Per Martin Fichter, a US Vice President at HTC, the once flagship Sprint device has been issued a final update, taking the device from Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) to Android 4.3 (Jellybean). While not the latest Android version, this update also carries the upgrade to Sense 5.
As the company stated in their Reddit AMA, HTC will continue to update their flagship devices to the latest Android versions for a full two years after release. Although the EVO 4G LTE wasn't a part of that promise, the company is making good on their commitment nonetheless.
To install the latest, simply download the RUU file to a Windows computer, plug in your device, and run the file. But be warned—this update will erase all your apps and data.
