HTC EVO 4G LTE owners: you guys ready to roll up your sleeves and get down and dirty with some ROM flashing? True to their word, HTC VP Martin Fichter posted a link on his Twitter account today that allows any-and-all HTC EVO 4G LTE owners on Sprint to manually download and flash the Android 4.3 with Sense 5 RUU for their device.
So why not over-the-air like traditional updates? According to HTC, they had been investigating ways of getting the over-the-air route but in the end, the EVO LTE’s memory constraints made that method impossible. No matter, for those that really want Android 4.3 and Sense 5 on their device (or even know the difference between that, and 4.1 Jelly Bean) you can now do things the XDA way: manually.
Simply download the 826MB zip file here and using a Windows PC, connect your device via USB and open the enclosed EXE file. Follow the onscreen steps and you’ll be on your way to the latest Jelly Bean experience. Keep in mind that the RUU will delete everything on your device — even the internal storage. So make a backup before starting. Godspeed.
