Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE Jelly Bean update now available to download


After months of waiting and watching other devices get promoted to Jelly Bean status, the HTC EVO 4G LTE is finally getting its day in the sun. Starting today, owners of Sprint's marquee handset can manually make the jump to Android 4.1.1 by tapping through Settings > System updates > HTC software update > Check Now. If that's too much finger work for your liking, the firmware's network push is slated to begin on January 3rd. Aside from a layer of HTC's Sense 4+, this new software adds Jelly Bean's improved browser performance and gives users the option to add custom ringtones that actually work.
