Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE Update: Google Wallet Working Again, Local Search Still Available
Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G LTE users were greeted with a small OTA update this morning. However, the small update brought big news with it. After the update Google Wallet is working flawlessly again and is working just like it should be.
Apparently, not too long ago, some EVO 4G LTE owners were initially unable to set up a Google Wallet account. The reason being that the application was unable to process the addition of any prepaid cards. However, Android developers discovered a little trick which involved changing the build.prop file on the HTC EVO 4G LTE, which ultimately leads it into assuming that it is a Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
But, now there is no need to implement that trick since the update itself returns the functionality back. The update which Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE received this morning also does not rob away the local search feature which was stripped out of Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Nexus due to the lawsuit between Apple and Samsung.
Sprint also released a list of changes which the update brought with itself to the HTC EVO 4G LTE. The first thing which made the list was Google security update, while the rest of the list was about various bug fixes for instance the Wifi disconnect issue, time zone issue, side loaded video pause issue, random power cycling issue, pioneer bluetooth car kit connection issue, gallery app crash, calendar reminder (all day even time) issue, etc. are all fixed now.
Like all the traditional OTA updates this one too can be downloaded manually by going to settings>system updates>HTC software update. However, chances are that you must have already got the notification.
Be sure to comment when the update hits your HTC EVO 4G LTE, and tell us what other improvements you have noticed after the new update.
