Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE Finally Receives Official Android 4.3 and Sense 5 Update via RUU!
Some say that a device just now receiving Android 4.3 is rather late to the party, and that most users here much prefer AOSP-derived SENSE-less ROMs—and they just might be right. All we know is, it’s called the Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE. Forgive me, as perhaps I’ve been watching too much TopGear.
Getting back to the point of this story, another device has just now entered the Android 4.3 fray, and it’s Sprint’s take on the popular One X: the HTC EVO 4G LTE. The update was shared by HTC VP Martin Fichter on Twitter earlier today, and it is not available via traditional methods. Rather than coming in the form of an OTA update, the firmware is delivered via a side loadable RUU that will completely wipe your data in the process.
So without further ado, head over to HTC’s Download Server or Martin Fichter’s Tweet to get in on the action. And once you’re done, be sure to drop by XDA Senior Member WindyCityRockr‘s update discussion thread and the comments section below to share your thoughts. It may not be KitKat, but it’s a step in the right direction!

Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far... Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...

In a bid to save face in light of the scores of agitated customers, Sprint published a blog post...
