Sprint HTC EVO 3D Ice Cream Sandwich Update Starts Rolling Out

The Sprint HTC EVO 3D Ice Cream Sandwich update roll out has begun.

We have received numerous tips from HTC EVO 3D owners who say that the Sprint EVO 3D Ice Cream Sandwich roll out has begun. Several reports also indicate the same thing so it appears that the device is amidst a massive upgrade.

Sprint had promised early August for the upgrade and it looks like it might have delivered a little earlier than expected which is always a nice touch for an Android update.

The update is currently rolling out OTA, Over-the-Air, which means that owners should be prompted to install the very large piece of software when it arrives. Once prompted, owners of the EVO 3D will download and install the update and finally get a replacement for Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

The software should also come with numerous bug fixes and enhancements though we still aren’t clear on exactly what ICS might have fixed.

The HTC EVO 3D ICS update has started to roll out.

Sprint’s EVO 3D is a little late to the ICS party. The HTC EVO 3D Ice Cream Sandwich update started rolling out for owners of the GSM variant of the device a few weeks ago.


The update should make the EVO 3D a much better device overall though it still is overshadowed by the HTC EVO 4G LTE which came out earlier this year.

The EVO 3D only runs on Sprint’s 4G WiMax network. Sprint will not be releasing any more WiMax smartphones, only those that run 4G LTE.

We have not yet heard from the HTC EVO Design 4G ICS roll out which is also slated for early August. We assume that it’s probably not far behind though.

Those who are still in possession of the HTC EVO 3D should be on the lookout for ICS, it should arrive soon.


Anyone see the update yet and if so, how’s it treating you?
