HTC EVO 4G maintenance update begins rolling out

Published: June 20, 2011


Heads up, HTC EVO 4G owners: a new maintenance update is now heading your way. Just a couple of weeks after Gingerbread came to the EVO 4G, Sprint has begun issuing a maintenance update that'll include fixes for issues with voicemail notifications, the hearing aid compatibility menu, and Netflix. The full list of improvements packed into the 25MB update is below.

Obviously this update isn't quite as exciting as the one from earlier this month that originally brought Android 2.3, but hey, it's always good to see maintenance updates arrive to patch some bugs, especially when those bugs affect something as important as Netflix. EVO 4G owners, do let us know when the 4.24.651.1 update makes its way to your neck of the woods!
