Honeycomb Rolling Out To HTC EVO View 4G, Don’t Update If You’re Rooted

According to reports in our forums and confirmed by Sprint Support, the EVO View 4G, essentially Sprint’s version of the HTC Flyer tablet, is now getting an update to Android 3.2.1 over-the-air. It brings all the Honeycomb goodness you’d expect, but, due to the differences to Gingerbread, will also reset your homescreen to factory-defaults. However, it’s strongly advised to hold off on the update if you’re rooted, as pointed out by forum member globatron:

  1. If you take this upgrade there is no HTC unlock for the View yet.
    • This means no root for now
    • This means no custom ROMs for now
    • This means no rollback to gingerbread for now
    • In other words this is a dead-end for now.
  2. There is no S-OFF tool for the view when running on HC (revolutionary will not work)
    • This means no root for now
    • This means no custom ROMs for now
    • This means no rollback to gingerbread for now
    • In other words this is a dead-end for now.
  3. There is currently no known working temp root exploit on HC (again this means no rollback)

For more information, see the forum thread.
