About a month ago there was a security flaw in various HTC Android devices that potentially allowed malicious apps to access and collect your personal info. HTC issued a press release saying that “So far, we have not learned of any customers being affected in this way and would like to prevent it by making sure all customers are aware of this potential vulnerability”. They promised a security fix was coming and they have followed through. Several Rogers HTC Evo 3D users are reporting that the software has been updated over-the-air to version 1.20.631.3, this also apparently increases performance and fixes the SENSE force close issue. If you have an EVO 3D check your device >> Settings, About Phone…

    It’s funny how Android crowd has to put in weeks and weeks of work, constantly tweaking and modifying their phones, so they could, hopefully, get at least some sort of a decent performance out of them, while Apple peeps get a solid, working unit right away, and get get back to having a life right away. Interesting!

      Right and I take that that logic doesn’t apply to the iOS5/iPhone 4S battery woes, does it ?

    We’re tweaking our phones because we’re able to and love the ability of customization our phones give us. You can’t customize because apple won’t let you. At least HTC came out with a fix for their users, unlike Apple who denies when their phone has a problem.

    I’m getting the upgrade now. Love my EVO 3D, it’s super fast, and simply more capable than my old Blackberry or the iPhone 4S. Anything I could think of doing on it, I CAN!

    Running Bell HTC Sensation, unlocked and using on Rogers.
    I got the update about a week ago.

    Software has been updated to 2.3.4, but ever since then, Messages keeps force closing.

    Doesn’t stop me from loving it though.

  • Rogers user

    Will this update kill revolutionary root/s-off?

    I get a Caution logo with a blue droid when it reboots to install the update… I am guessing this is due to the root software?
