HTC EVO 4G LTE getting 4.1 Jelly Bean update today according to leaks

HTC recently released some details stating when they'll be updating their many devices to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, but today we have some additional info on their flagship HTC EVO 4G LTE. Some new reports have been flooding in lately that the EVO 4G LTE will actually be updated via OTA update to Jelly Bean this week. Now, according to some leaked documents it looks like today is the day.

Obviously we'll need to treat this as a rumor for now, but if the leaked internal screenshot tells us anything, EVO 4G LTE owners will be in for some tasty treats today. So far we've not received any confirmation that it is indeed rolling out -- but we expect to hear more shortly.

The image above is a leaked document from the Now Network, showing the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update is set to start rolling out today, November 15th, to the HTC EVO 4G LTE. After looking over a few of the details it looks like this will be a slow rollout over the next week or so, then all devices should be updated in due time. It mentions November 27th specifically today, but most users should receive the update before then.

The last bit of the document states Android 4.0 ICS instead of Jelly Bean, which obviously is wrong, so for now we're chalking this up in the rumor mill until we actually see devices get updated today. For those that don't want to wait, you could always grab a stable build of CyanogenMod 10 for the device, but this update is coming straight from HTC with Sense UI included. Stay tuned for more details.

    Man, if this turns out to be true, this will be like an early Christmas for me. I updated my Nexus 7 yesterday, and now maybe my Evo today!

      Keep in mind this is 4.1 Jelly Bean, not 4.2. But still

    • Jeremy M

      Sprint Social Media Team says that they don’t know when Jelly Bean will be ready for the EVO. Of course sometimes Sprint customer liaisons are the last to know.

  • disqus_Tr7duX3EaR

    I say fuck HTC and sprint all sprint customers to stop paying it bill and bankrupt there ass

  • Mark M.

    A couple of days ago, I needed to contact Sprint tech support regarding an issue and the person I spoke with mentioned to me that a significant update would be coming OTA directly from HTC by the end of the month (November). She said it was supposed to have been released several days earlier but HTC was running behind schedule. She would not be more specific about the update but I assume it is Jelly Bean. Just thought I would pass this info along…take it FWIW.

  • Robert

    Nothing here :(, I just checked my phone for updates, I’m starting to think I made the wrong choice picking EVO over Galaxy S3, my wife just got it and it already has JellyBean.

  • Rod

    • http://twitter.com/ON_da_Mark Mark

    • sprintLies

      another lie. Just a few days left though.

    • sprintLies

      dude disqus_Tr7duX3EaR today IS the 10th. Where tf is this update you speak of?

      • sprintLies

        disqus_Tr7duX3EaR your silence is deafening. Today is now the 11th and the update that HTC promised you is still missing. Did I call their bluff or what?

  • Bar-1

    Saw a build number come through today 3.15.651.16, which is a few higher than the leak. I would expect this in going to happen this month.
