[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.
You can learn more by heading over to the HTC One M7 update thread. And if you’re looking to get in on the OTA action a bit early, head over to TeHashX’s mirror post.
[Many thanks to XDA Senior Member dd98 for the heads up!]

While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
Battery life is an important aspect of your smartphone, especially if you use it for more than just calls on the go. Since you're on XDA, you probably do and want to get the most out of your battery. Now, you can't magically expand its size but no matter how much its capacity is, you should make sure it's not draining faster than it should be.

We are very close to entering the last third of 2015, and we have now seen many of the biggest flagship lines issue their latest iterations. Phones like the LG G4 and Galaxy S6 were some of the most anticipated devices in smartphone history, and the hype surrounding the M9 and OnePlus 2 had us discussing for weeks. But for the most part, the awe has vanished. There is a feeling that virtually all of us at the XDA office...
