Thanks to HTC we now have 2.3.4! This is the latest OTA update being pushed, the only things I have done to it is root and added busybox. If you are already using a stock ROM these can be flashed with only a Dalvik wipe. If you aren't sure what to use I am currently using the Odexed update zip, the Radio & PRI updates and the RPM update. The odexed ROM can be skipped if you are just wanting the Radio updates. Instructions on how to flash everything and what the difference between an Update and Firmware are can be found on Post #3.

If you're not sure how to flash this Disturb3d1 has made a great video showing how to update.


Update Zips
These must be flashed through the Recovery.
Note About Mods: Since this update is Android 2.3.4, while the old one was 2.3.3, all of the framework mods will need to be remade for this version. Using any of the old ones will cause issues and could make the ROM unstable.


Completely Stock 2.08.651.2 ROM - As is from using the OTA update (MD5: 662790FC8DAF4B86CAFD27AE29E02CFC) (MD5: 77D088F46CC37BF2C2CE9227CED4AC94)


Stock 2.08.651.2 With HTC/Sprint Spyware Removed
[ROM] Stock 2.08.651.2 With HTC/Sprint Spyware Removed


These must be flashed through fastboot/hboot.
Rmk40 from the Sensation side has a thread containing info about the different partitions here. At the moment it looks like the radio, rcdata and RPM partitions are the only ones of use to us, but you should be fine if you decide to update everything else as well. Also, if you need an easy way to check MD5 sums you can find a windoze tool for it here(Thx riggsAndroid!).


Full 2.08.651.2 Firmware Zip Extracted From The RUU
This is mainly for devs but it can also be used to restore your phone if needed. Flashing it will restore your phone to a completely stock state and will wipe everything! (MD5: 29F1698BCBF478A7297703D812718D35)


All 2.08.651.2 Firmware Minus hBoot (MD5: BCEA75347F8194EB1C10B2711E98A225)

SBL Secure/Secondary Bootloader? (MD5: 5604349AD611241CF1AC152FD3B0DE45)

TZ Trusted Zone - Not sure of it's purpose (MD5: 75749FBCCE1331A5A85D2A154E15B276)

How-Tos - SteelH has posted a ton of info on how to modify the stock ROM and he is constantly adding new stuff, so check back often. If the link is bad search for all the threads started by steelh in the Evo 3D apps & theming section. - How to disable the shutter sound - Wifi Tether App updated for Evo 3D - Stock Kernel with the RAM disk modified to disable Sprint's spyware and add init.d support. - Unlocked native hotspot

If you know of any more mods that aren't listed here just give me a holler and I'll add them

More - Some clarification about the ROM and Firmware.

I took a closer look at the files in the OP and it became clearer since I've done this sort of thing many times. So... for anyone on stock rooted OTA who wants to just update, here's what I did. Note these instructions are for TWRP recovery. Works, s-off and root confirmed after the update:

(1) Download and from OP.

(2) Put on the SD card root.

(3) Power down. Pull battery if you run fastboot.

(4) Hold power and down volume to enter bootloader.

(5) Select "Recovery" and then go to the "Wipe" menu and wipe the Dalvik Cache.

(6) Back to the main Recovery menu and choose the option to install a ZIP.

(6) Select from the list of files and then confirm.

(7) BE PATIENT. It's a big file and you could see nothing happen for a few minutes.

(8) Process should eventually complete. You can go back in the recovery menu and reboot. Once successfully rebooted, if you want to update the radios, PRI, etc., continue below.

(9) To update the radios, PRI, etc., rename to and put it on the root of the SD card.

(10) Once again, use power and volume down to boot to the bootloader. This time, it should find automatically and will prompt you to update. Say yes and let it go.

(11) When the update is complete, choose the option to reboot.

(12) Remember to remove the file from the root.
