[OTA Captured] Sprint HTC One Max Receives Sense 6, Brings Features from the M8

Back at the tail end of last month, we talked about how HTC had updated its software update pages to display their progress in bringing Sense 6 to older devices. At the time, every available HTC One Max variant and practically all of the M7 devices were receiving carrier bloatware as part of the “integration” stage.

Now less than one month later, almost all of these devices are  prepping for release in the “certification” phase. However, one stands above the rest in receiving the Sense 6 update first, and that’s Sprint variant of the HTC One Max.

The update, which first began making its way to consumer devices earlier today, comes in at software version 3.02.651.5. As expected, it brings Sense 6 to the device, as well as practically all of the features of the HTC One M8 (2014) except for Motion Launch. This includes new gallery and camera apps, BlinkFeed improvements, Sense TV enhancements, a button to clear all recent apps, and the Extreme Power Savings mode we first saw a little while back on the Sprint HTC One M8.

The update will eventually make its way out to consumer devices on Sprint over the course of the coming week or two. However, XDA Senior Member nfinitefx45 has gone ahead and mirrored the OTA for your sideloading pleasure. Naturally to install this, you need to be on stock software and be running the stock recovery.

Head over to the captured OTA thread to get your fix early. And if you’re on another carrier, keep your eyes peeled, as the update will be hitting your device soon as well!
