HTC EVO 4G Maintenance Software Update Rolling Out Now

HTC is rolling out a software update for the first ever 4G phone the HTC Evo 4G. The software update is basically a maintenance update and updates some applications of the phone along with adding some bloatware. The update also includes SWYPE keyboard, Kindle eReader and a demo version of NOVA game from Gameloft.

HTC_EVO_4GHere is the full change-log thanks to Android Central :

Blockbuster (including WM DRM 10)

  • Kindle eReader
  • Preloaded try/buy video game: NOVA from Gameloft
  • Sprint Zone update
  • Latest Telenav
  • Latest VVM App
  • Latest Sprint TV app
  • SWYPE Keyboard
  • Scan Now Widget for 4G (does not need to be available on any panel, just a widget option users could find and use).

As you can see from the above change-log, this OTA update basically adds more bloatware to the EVO 4G.

The software update also breaks root so rooted users should not install this OTA. Alternatively, they can install this rooted and deodexed RUU based on the OTA from teshxx.
