Sprint has over-the-air updates scheduled to roll out beginning today for the HTC EVO 4G, the Samsung Epic 4G, and the EVO Design 4G. Using the opportunity presented by removing Carrier IQ, Sprint has bundled up a few other fixes for these handsets and the OTA updates, beginning today, should be 100 percent complete in 10 days. The update information is as follows:
Update to version 2.12.651.5
Updated Peep client (to align with Twitter)
Updated Sprint Zone client
Battery life improvements
3LM Enterprise Tool Access (no user interface changes)
The QIK and Asphalt 5 applications are no longer preloaded. When opening the applications using the application icon, you will be redirected to the Android market to download and install the full application.
After the QIK install, you will need to login using your original account information or create a new account. All contacts should remain intact
After the Asphalt 5 install, previous game play data (eg. levels) will not be retained.
