During The HTC Utopia In Progress event, HTC discussed their work with the speakers of the M9. With Boomsound integration they aim to bring a "first class audio experience," featuring speakers similar to that of the previous HTC M8 model. As Graham Wheeler (Director of products, EMEA) and Aaron Baker (Senior Manager, Global Social Media) put it, "people are always listening to music on their phones, its an important part of the phone...

[OTA Captured, RUU Available] Sense 6 Now Rolling Out to Verizon HTC One M7
Back on Monday, HTC USA Product Manager Leigh Momii stated that the Sense 6 update for the Verizon HTC One M7 was set to roll out to consumer devices some time this week. When Sprint updated its support documents to state that the update would begin rolling out to its variant starting today, many wondered when the Verizon model would receive the update since it was announced first. Now, we’ve just gotten word that the rollout for the Verizon model has finally begun.
Coming in at software version 4.10.605.3, today’s update 642.8 MB update for the Verizon M7 brings all that we’ve seen in Sense 6 updates for other devices and M7 variants. This includes a revised BlinkFeed interface with more content options, improved UI design, a revised camera and gallery UI, and some minor home screen improvements. In addition, there are some device-specific fixes to bugs involving ISIS Wallet payments and the inability to power on the device.
This update has begun making its way out to consumer devices through a staged OTA rollout. As such, not every device will be in the initial wave. Luckily, XDA Recognized Contributor dottat and Recognized Developer santod040 were kind enough to mirror the OTAs for those who are unrooted and running stock recovery. And if that’s not enough, dottatt even repackaged the update as an RUU that can be flashed via TWRP as a complete update on S-Off devices.
To learn more about the update, head over to this thread. If you wish to sideload the OTA update on your own device, head over to dottat’s mirror or santodo40’s mirror, and if you want the complete update in RUU format, head over to dottat’s repackaged firmware thread.
