HTC EVO 4G Update With Netflix Fix: Beginning Now

We like to keep readers informed about all the latest software updates for their smartphones and just yesterday gave information about the latest HTC Thunderbolt update. We also gave HTC EVO 4G owners news a few weeks ago of the Gingerbread update and now the EVO 4G is in for a maintenance update with a Netflix fix plus much more.

The maintenance update is being pushed out now by Sprint and the fix to give Netflix compatibility back, after the last update bugged it, will be a big plus for many users. There will also be an SMS fix to correct an intermittent problem with messages sent to the wrong contacts. The update to version 4.24.651.1 also includes many other fixes according to Phil Nickinson over on Android Central, sourced from Sprint. Check it out at the link for the full list.

Sprint informs that this latest update is for users currently on version 4.22.651.2 (the Gingerbread update) and version 3.70.651.1 (Froyo). Android Police also reported that this update would be coming today and an update shows it is indeed rolling out now and also shows a summary graphic of the update.

Are you an EVO 4G owner who has been waiting for this maintenance update to fix issues such as Netflix compatibility? Once you’ve received the update let us know if all your bugs have been ironed out by sending us your comments.

          I’ve looked several times now with both wifi and 3g (no 4g in my area) and there is no update. Really don’t want to be given the run-around here. Is it out or not?

    Did update and came out to be really easy!! Market still not showing Netflix app for the evo. So I downloaded from xda and it came out to be really good and plays movies!!! Stll app shows a update message for it, but it wont update because still the “app” is not available in the Market for the EVO.

    I installed the update and tried logging into Netflix. I get a message “We’re sorry, but something went wrong” Go back or try again. I tried about 10 times. Anyone know what’s going on or how to fix?
