It looks like all you EVO 4G owners will be getting an update in just a short few days. Apparently in five days on June 20th an OTA update will start rolling out to fix a bunch of issues that were recently added with the EVO 4G 2.3 Gingerbread update. We have reported about a slew of issues since the update and it is nice to hear fixes may be coming so quickly.

Some of the main issues is the ghost voicemail indicator that appears for no reason at all and continues to come back even after you've deleted all your voicemails. Another huge issue that has caused a lot of grief lately is the Android 2.3 update for the EVO broke Netflix for many users, the update should also address this problem as well.

UPDATE: more information on this update HERE

Obviously with all updates especially something that will roll out over the air to all the users need to be tested first, we are assuming these fixes are already being tested if they plan to start rolling out as soon as June 20th. The ad mentions that updates are subject to change without notice, but that is nothing new in the world of Android updates. So stay tuned as you just might be getting that update come Monday and you'll be back to loving your EVO all over again.

    Hmm..so does this mean the Netflix issue was actually from HTC’s end? If so then this sux for us custom rom users…guess we will have to wait an extra day or 2 for the roms to be updated

    Hopefully the generic folder icons, the HTC screen when exiting apps and the compass fix will be in there also.

    1. Pandora Does Not Work 
    2. My videos can’t play, every time i try to play them i the screams turn black and i cant see or hear anything. 
    3. When i’m using the internet explorer app and press home, it takes a long time to reload my home screen. This happens countless of times.
    4. When i check the task-killer app, a massive number of apps are open thus my phone slows down considerately.
    5.TeleNav is always active and sincerely i dont own a car so whats the point of wasting my memory. 
    6. My other app aren’t working properly either. 

    THANKS SO MUCH HTC! You just lost a loyal CUSTOMER!
    I’m really upset with this crappy update, you guys should be taken over by apple!

    The reboot times is much longer now, I’m still having the same problems even after update.
    1. I cant use Pandora and other apps tend to force close. 2. My videos can’t be play, only a black screens appears and you can hear voices only. The home screen refreshes continuously. Does anybody knows if HTC plans to unveil more “updates” to fix these annoying bugs?

    My only issue is after spending a significant amount of time on a application or the internet, when I close it my screen has to reload and that’s annoying me.
