Now, there’s no certainty here, as we don’t even have a release date for the update, but it’s possible that a lucky hacker got their hands on an early release.

This all started with the Evo 3D, when Sprint gave owners the option of uninstalling bloatware, such as the Sprint Nascar app, from the device without the need for root.
