HTC EVO 3D Getting Minor OTA Update, Seems To Remove Carrier IQ
It’s not Ice Cream Sandwich yet, but this new OTA update for the HTC EVO 3D should still bring some very nice improvements. Very nice, indeed.
Sprint’s official changelog doesn’t reveal much, except for the software version 2.17.651.5 and a generic “security update” bullet point. However, at least according to preliminary reports in our forums, Carrier IQ has been removed, which should be a very good reason for everyone to perform this update. Apart from that, there’s also a new kernel that’s said to improve battery life, and the new Android Market included.
The catch? It’s not rooted yet, so you may want to (or have to, if you’re perm-rooted) hold out for a bit. But then, automatic notifications for this update will only start on January 17 anway, so if you want to get it earlier you’d have to manually check by going to Settings > System updates > HTC software update > Check now.
