[OTA Captured] Android 4.4.3 Lands on European HTC One M7
The secound release of the Android L Developer Preview may be the new hotness for all of the Nexus 5 and 7-2013 owners out there, but the rest of us are still living in the world of KitKat and all of its version number variants. The former flagship HTC One is obviously no exception in this regard, and it has been running KitKat for quite a while.
Now, the HTC One M7 has started receiving a new OTA update in certain regions. This update comes in at software version 6.09.401.5 and its main benefit is the upgrade to Android 4.4.3. It’s not the very latest Android 4.4.4, but it’s at least an Android update. In addition to bumping up the Android version number, this update brings OpenSSL security improvements and updates to the Camera, Gallery (Image Match), and HTC Sync Manager apps.
The 556.12 MB OTA is gradually making its way out to end user devices in various parts of Europe. However, those with a compatible device need not wait for their turn, as XDA Senior Member TeHashX has gone ahead and mirrored the OTA for your sideloading pleasure. What’s more, he’s also gone ahead and linked to various iterations of the stock firmware to restore to before applying the update.
[Many thanks to XDA Senior Member dd98 for the heads up!]
