EVO 4G LTE Owners: Get Your Official JB Update Now
If all rumors were true, we would likely be living with aliens, and Elvis would likely be alive and kicking back in his cozy shack in Las Vegas while sipping, well, virtually everything in front of him. That said, rumors have a tendency to give us a bad aftertaste since they normally tend to not be true, which is a very nice slap back into reality. However, when they are true, it normally takes a second or two to sink in, but we tend to jump with joy shortly thereafter.
XDA Forum Member 27s started a thread earlier today based on a story posted by AndroidPolice that stated, with a screenshot of unconfirmed and unknown origin, that Jelly Bean would be rolling out to the HTC EVO 4G LTE sometime today.
Lots of skepticism went around for the better part of the day, until people started reporting that they were getting OTA update notifications via Sprint Zone. If you can see the featured image in this article, you will see that the update is in fact the much awaited newer version of the Android OS, which has been making rounds through all of the Android world, mostly in the shape of AOSP-based ROMs.
The new version should come with a few goodies for EVO 4G LTE owners to enjoy. However, the best part is that now there is a fully JB-compatible version of Sense to play around with, and port back to older (but still very much capable) devices like the Sensation, EVO 3D, and others.
Please post some feedback. And if you happen to get your hands on a dump of the download, post it so that others can see what it had for lunch. Who knows what goodies (or baddies) this new build may have.

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...
Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
