A small update for the system software on the HTC EVO 4G that was released yesterday has been withdrawn after some users reported problems.
However, shortly after users began installing it yesterday, reports started to come in of problems, some severe enough to “brick” devices.
According to a statement from Sprint:
While the vast majority of consumers successfully downloaded and installed the most recent HTC evo 4G software update, we have received a handful of reports from customers having some issues with the update. In light of this, HTC and Sprint have decided to temporarily halt distribution of this software release until we can investigate further. We expect to be able to resume software updates shortly.
