Lets use this thread to list any bugs or problems we have come across.

By request of "test878", here is a list of all bugs in this thread. Did my best to add everything. If I missed something, or if anything I posted isnt considered a bug, please let me know and I will update. Lets first start off with the most important bug...

  • I can't seem to install Cyanogenmod7 at all and the bootloader is tied up pretty tight.
  • Anyone noticing any graphics lines in their widgets? Im getting some kind of glitch over my Youtube widget, and my Twitter widget. Update: Rebooting fixed it for now, will update if it comes back.
  • When I reboot the phone, all my apps that are on my sd card icons don't show up. I just get the generic green android icon. I tried messing with fastboot, didn't seem to help.
  • But my biggest bug and very noticeable problem is that the camera will freeze. This happens a lot. The picture will snap, the preview will come up and stay there. The phone is not frozen because I can hit the home button, but the camera will still be stuck on the same preview even after I hit the icon. Eventually stops after opening it several times. No restart required.
  • when you have the headphone jack plugged in, and you try to reboot the phone tries to reboot bug hangs with black screen. pressing the power button in any number of ways does nothing but turn the back light off and on (the screen displays nothing)
  • I have the 100% wake lock issue, its really pudding me off! Does anyone else have this??
  • WiFi will randomly (not really, it's easily replicated) drop out when connected to a Bluetooth headset, and will not turn back on unless you switch to handset or speakerphone mode.
  • I am having trouble with the clock/weather widget. It will not find my location for the weather
  • After said restart and another after it, when spinning thru the different windows, it shows all of the screen with widgets on them as blank until you stop on the different screens.
  • apps that I put in folders on the rosie and then later remove from said folder somehow show back up in that folder randomly.
  • HTC trace kb only works the first time or two, then stops working, even though it's still on in settings. Works again if you disable and the re enable, but fails the same way right after.
  • I think that the sync icon sticking is caused by HTC Watch. As soon as I deleted my account in the app and rebooted it unstuck.
  • The sizes are off in some apps because of the lcd density.
  • The notification light for gTalk is still flashing when after you open and reply to a message. To get it to stop, you have to back all the way out of gTalk, and go back to the message you just received.
  • Phone hard locks on Youtube after playing 3D videos. Screen turns off and capacitive buttons stay lit. Had to pull battery out to reset the phone. Happened on 2 different Evo 3Ds.
  • Camera goes to/defaults to 2D mode, despite the switch being in 3D mode
  • The music player is messed up for me with artists that have multiple albums.
  • When i send a message to someone it shows a green dot in the message app like i received a new message but it was just my message i sent
  • WIFI will not connect to a corporate secured network after reboot. I have to 'forget' the network, and start from scratch, each and every time.
  • Noticed when you snooze a calendar alert from the lock screen, it never re-alerts you, it acts like you dismiss it.
  • Seems the notification sound i have set does not play for my exchange mail. Plays for new gmail, but when new exchange mail comes it, it plays the 'Alpha' tone.
  • I set up my personal email last night using IMAP. On the lock screen it shows I have 99+ unread emails but on the home screen and in the email section its showing no unread emails.
  • I'm having a problem with Exchange. In People, the contacts can't be viewed Last Name, First Name, no matter how I try to configure the View settings.
  • I have had an issue with the camera freezing up on me. I'll take a pic, try to share, and it freezes. Hit the home button and it will respond.
  • my Yahoo! email won't show ANY of my mail using the native client.
  • 3D will stop working in everything but the camera and gallery. Youtube won't play anything in 3D (just displays 2d), and The Green Hornet won't play in 3D. A reboot fixes it temporarily.
  • Can't get watchESPN to actually play video.
  • Anyone having problems with the home button not responding? I have to turn the phone off and then back on before it responds.
  • When on 3G, the youtube app does not function well. It plays random videos contrary to what you selected to view.
  • I had a weird bug where the lockscreen was black from about the middle of the LCD screen all the way down, and the top half of the screen was the ring to unlock and my 4 icons. Thing is, I couldn't unlock the screen, or open any of the apps. I tried sleeping the screen on and off, didn't fix it. Finally did a battery pull and that fixed it.
  • I noticed that when you plug the phone in to charge it always seems to kick the brightness up to the max and you have to turn it down.
  • the watch (green hornet) app has suddenly stopped displaying 3d.
  • I'm having an issue where there is a popping sound before the start of any audio. It happens whether i'm starting a text or listening to any audio. It may be an issue with my phone specifically.
  • Since the OTA I have started having random touchscreen issues such as the touchscreen being completely unresponsive.
  • Also I will touch on a certain app and another app will start instead.
  • Another bug when phone is in landscape mode the keyboard calibration tool doesn't show up as an option.
  • Sometime when I try to press the screen nothing respond in sorting place or move. Also when i restart the phone the phone don't power back up I have to turn it on normal.
  • Brightness problem. I have my brightness set very low, but when I use the 3d camera to take some pictures, the brightness seems to reset to full brightness. Soon as I go back in display settings and touch the slider just the slightest, it fixes itself.
  • When I make a call the earpiece seems to go quiet when ringing and then turns up as well. It's like the ringing is fading in and out when I'm making a call.
  • Download app from Market (FeedR and Currency Exchange) the last two days. Apps installed okay, but when tap to launch app (Both apps), the screen went black, none of the capacitive buttons nor the power button will awake the phone. Have to do a battery pull.
  • I was watching a Youtube video in 3D and had an incoming call. The screen went black immediately and I had no way of answering the phone, and I got no response from any of the capacitive buttons or power button. I missed the call, and the screen remained black with still no response from the buttons. Eventually I tried the camera button and it worked. Camera app launched and I had full control over the phone again.
  • phone reboots when i take out usb cable
  • I just noticed that the Weather Lock Screen doesn't display 3-digit temperatures correctly.
  • The music player pause and skip forward buttons show a pressed state at all times.
  • I cant even see the green hornet every time i go to it or to htc watch it tell me i need to update my software and i already did that. And after I tried it again it tell me there is no more software updates for the phone.
  • When you click on the power button and select restart, it actually shuts down the phone and you have to power it back on.
  • So I was on the phone today when my battery died and my phone shut off. I went to charge it using my car charger, and the light did not come on. Waited till I got home to try my normal charger, same thing. Decided to take the battery out and now it works fine. Not sure what happened, guess its a.....bug.
  • I'd appreciate it if anyone can confirm a bug in the calculator app. When I open it, the entire app is huge, its not formatted properly.
  • Apperantly screen is not big enough to read triple digit temperatures.
  • top half of the screen stops responding at times, usually after using one of the sprint or HTC apps. pulling the battery and restarting fixed this, cant select power off as it is in the top half of the screen
  • In the stock messaging app, when using a signature it always saves a blank message as a draft after sending original message.
  • I've been having random bugs like my screen going black or 3D/2D not turning on off correctly but most of it is stuff that can be corrected easily. The most noticable one I've notices so far is where everything on the lockscreen(background and all) is smushed in the top half of the screen but you still have to drag it up from the bottom to unlock.
  • about 40% of the time I turn the screen off on my phone, the screen will turn itself back on a second later without me touching anything. Turning it off a second time always keeps it off.
  • Sometimes, my music will start playing on its own, even though no music player is open
  • I also have experienced the SD card items Icons not showing up after reboot. Also see the Force Close Pandora pop up when I have not even activated it. Good to know they're looking into it.
  • My sms messages which were recieved within an hour of rebooting and read, are remarked as unread after a reboot. Annoying.
    Seams like some sort of data shadowing.
  • I just started up my camera and there were horizontal (in landscape mode) green static lines (about 1/8 in thick) across the screen. About 10 which were equally spaced from each other and I could still see what the camera was pointing at. It would not go away even as I switched between video and still, portrait and landscape.

I have not tried any of the Fr3vo stuff so I am fully stock and on the .7 OTA. I rebooted the phone and it is gone.
  • When I pause the music player in the middle of a track, go off and do stuff in other apps or in the real world, then come back, often the music player has reset to the beginning of the track.
  • In the browser, drop-down lists don't work on some sites.
  • My icons are also changing back to the default green android for apps placed in a folder.
  • If I'm in the camera in 3D mode then put my phone to sleep using the power button, then press the power button to bring it out of sleep, the unlock screen has the parallax 3D on. The lock screen isn't in 3D of course, but you can see the distortion as if it were stuck in 3D mode. Unlocking your phone fixes this.
  • twice now I've had my phone just shut off. Not reboot. I go to turn the screen on and nothing happens. I hold the power button down and the HTC splash pops up and the phone boots.
  • Notification bar just disappears every once in awhile. Have the restart the phone to get it back.

Lets use this thread to list any bugs or problems you have come across.

Right now I am unable to connect to HTC Sense. When I make an accuount and it attempts to connect, I get an error.

I was able to connect to HTC Sense.

Started up Spiderman 3D. Played for a minute. Hit the home key. I was at the Sense UI but it was trying to display everything in 3D. Had to go back into Spiderman and quit normally and everything worked fine again

Still can't DL anything manually from the Market. I talked with Bonnie from CNET who did the review from them and she said the market was working on her review model.

I just got another OTA update when I booted back up. Maybe this fixes it? (I got a OTA when I first activated it this morning)

activation was the prl, profile and firmware update, not the OS update

just because it shows in the battery as 100% doesn't mean it's truly 100% battery, i installed Battery Time lite, the OS showed the battery at 60% but battery time showed the batter at 53%, so you could be just a little impatient

lol no the battery meter stopped moving, it was full.

however it didnt change to green at all. Gotta let it die again and try once more, but there was another guy who had it happen also

anyone confirm they got a green light?

you do realize that when the bar reaches the 100% mark the animations stop but it's still charging, once it reaches over the 90% the battery meter shows 100% when in fact it could be 91%

its safe to say if the phone came shipped 50 percent, and charged for over 2 hours without changing led colors, somethings up lol

    Some of you blow me away with your comments, and you should reconsider your presence in this community. Specifically the following..

    Well, it sounds like HTC sure f**ked this one up. Thats a lot of annoying software bugs that people are reporting. They better fix this quick.
    I don't get it.....do they not test this **** before releasing it? WTF? How can they miss so many bugs?

    I will go play with one on Friday when it comes out and then decide.

    :rolleyes:

    You don't even HAVE the phone and you're complaining??!! Those that do have it, got the phone early AND HTC is ALREADY pushing updates for a phone that IS NOT YET OFFICIALLY RELEASED! If you're an early adopter, most of the problems being reported come with the territory. If you cant deal with some of what I would consider minor issues, go get an iPhone. You sound entitled, I worry about the expectations you will have from the Devs once progress begins to ramp up. If your comments are any kind of foreshadowing of your Dev expectations, please send an email to [email protected] and request you account to be closed, do the community a favor. Thanks!

    I can't seem to install Cyanogenmod7 at all and the bootloader is tied up pretty tight.

    If you have problems..

    .. after today's software update, like missing phone icon on the lockscreen, etc you may need to a hard reset the device via settings>sd & phone storage>factory data reset. This has been shown to clear the missing icon on lock screen issue. I'm a Launch Product Ambassador with Sprint supporting the EVO 3D. Please let me know if you have questions about the device. We are actively monitoring XDA Dev and want to be sure we capture and address all issues and questions.

    People slamming the reviewers about their negative reviews and now they crying about bugs?
