[OTA Captured] Android 4.4.3 Lands on European HTC One M7

HTC One M7 Android 4.4.3

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 OpenSS. . . READ ON »

Android L Developer Preview Ported to HTC One

HTC One Android L Developer Preview

With each passing day, we grow closer and closer to the eventual release of Android L. We could just sit around, waiting for Google to release the source code and system images, but waiting for an official release is far from being fun. XDA members love porting fun, and custom ROM development provides the required dose.

The Android L port for the Google Nexus 4 was more or less expected, and came relatively shortly after Google released the developer preview images for the N5 and N7-2013. Not many expected to see a HTC One (M7) port, but XDA Senior Member ssrij and a team of developers managed to port the Android L Developer Preview to this former flagship device.

The port is still in alpha sta. . . READ ON »

HTC Commits to Delivering Android “L” to M8 and M7 within 90 Days of Release

htc - Android L

We still don’t know what the “L” in Android L stands for, but we’re already salivating at what this update will bring to consumer devices. Promising improved performance, a refreshed UI, better battery life, and much more; L is a legitimately significant release, and possibly the most important version since Ice Cream Sandwich.

With all of the new features introduced in L, it’s no wonder that many users are now wondering when they’ll get to experience this latest version on their own devices. We already know that the developer preview will be available for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) tomorrow. And now, HTC has taken the opportunity to commit to releasing Android L upd. . . READ ON »

sens6

Update: XDA Senior Member clsA was kind enough to capture and mirror the update for your early-access sideloading pleasure! Head over to this post to get started.

This past Saturday, we talked about how the AT&T HTC One would finally catch up to the other M7 variants and receive its official update to HTC Sense 6. As a quick refresher, the update first made its way to the developer and unlocked variants of the HTC One M7 about three weeks ago. A couple days later, the T-Mobile variant of the HTC One M7 receive its taste. And then last week, the update hit the Verizon and Sprint variants. Now after quite a long wait, the update is finally here for the HTC One M7 running on America’. . . READ ON »

[OTAs Captured] Android 4.4.3 Rolling Out to Google Play Editions, Kernel Source Available for HTC GPe Devices!

GPe

Today will undoubtedly be remembered the day of Android 4.4.3–at least among us die hard Android fans. Immediately following yesterday’s official release, we’ve seen quite a bit of Android 4.4.3-related activity. Early this morning, we saw the Android 4.4.3 OTA make its way over to the WiFi-only variant of the Google Nexus 7 (2013). Just a few hours later, we talked about all of the changes made in 4.4.3. Not too long after, Motorola began updating its “Moto” devices to 4.4.3. And finally, Google began rolling out the 4.4.3 incremental OTA to the flagship Nexus 5.

Now, we’ve just gotten word that Android 4.4.3 has started making its way out to various Google Pl. . . READ ON »

AT&T HTC One M7 to Join the Party and Receive Sense 6 Early Next Week

m7sense6

Two weeks ago, we saw the Sense 6 roll out to the developer and unlocked variants of the HTC One M7. A couple days later, the T-Mobile variant of the HTC One M7 receive its taste of Sense 6. And then earlier this week, we saw HTC Sense 6 updates roll out to the Verizon and the Sprint variants of the device.

With so many M7 device variants receiving Sense 6 updates, many on America’s second largest mobile carrier were quick to wonder when the AT&T HTC One would receive its taste of the updated Sense goods. But thanks to a tweet by HTC US President Jason Mackenzie, which was quickly reiterated by VP of Product Management Mohammed Versi, we now know that the update will start rolling out to consumer devic. . .

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 wit. . . READ ON »
