It appears as though Sprint has stopped pushing out the over-the-air EVO 4G update released to its customers just yesterday. In an official statement, Sprint wrote:

While the vast majority of consumers successfully downloaded and installed the most recent HTC EVO 4G software update, we have received a handful of reports from customers having some issues with the update. In light of this, HTC and Sprint have decided to temporarily halt distribution of this software release until we can investigate further. We expect to be able to resume software updates shortly.

Shortly after the updates release, rumors began flying around the internet about “bricked” handsets after the new code had been applied. True or not, it looks like Sprint isn’t taking any chances with its flagship handset.
