POSTS TAGGED: HTC One
Posted March 19, 2014 at 05:00 am by Will Verduzco
Yesterday we talked about how the European HTC One was finally receiving its Android 4.4.2 KitKat update once more. The device, which initially saw its official KitKat release back in January, later had the update pulled due to issues that certain users were facing. Now, it’s update time for the Australian variants of the One.
Today’s update bumps the Australian variants of the HTC One to software version 4.20.980.1. The firmware, which is currently being delivered in the form of a 308 MB incremental OTA update, is making its way to Optus, Telstra, and Vodafone devices.
Since the update is being rolled out in the form of a staged OTA, not every device will receive the update immediately. Luc. . . READ ON »

Back at the tail end of January, we talked about how the international HTC One received its official update to Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Not too long after, the update was put on hold due to issues that some users were facing after having upgraded. Now, KitKat is back and currently rolling out to international devices once again.
The update, which is now currently rolling out for the international variant of the device (M7_U / PN0711000), comes in the form of ROM version 4.19.401.5. And just like the previous update that was pulled, this bumps up the device to Android 4.4.2 KitKat. News of this update comes courtesy of XDA Recognized Developer LlabTooFer‘s Twitter.
Just as before, the update is being delivere. . . READ ON »

Just yesterday, we talked about how Android 4.4.2 had begun rolling out to the T-Mobile HTC One. We also mentioned that a similar update was on its way for the AT&T HTC One in the very near future. Well, that time is now here, as the 4.4.2 update has begun rolling out for AT&T’s variant of the device.
The update, which comes in at software version 4.18.502.7, started rolling out early this morning. As expected, it packs Android 4.4.2 laced with Sense 5.5. Naturally, this is a staged rollout, meaning that not every device will receive the update immediately. However, thanks to XDA Senior Members clsA and smoley, we have a pair of mirrors on AndroidFileHost and Dropbox, which can be flashed . . . READ ON »

HTC has done a reasonably good job in disseminating the KitKat goods to their flagship HTC One, as well as its regional variants. The most recent recipient of the 4.4 update is the T-Mobile variant, which started receiving the staged rollout late last night.
The KitKat update for the T-Mobile HTC One comes in at software version 4.19.531.10, and it bumps up the Android version to 4.4.2 with HTC Sense 5.5. As expected, the update packs all the same features that we saw in the Verizon update not too long ago.
The update is being delivered in the form of a staged rollout. Naturally, this means that not every device will receive the OTA immediately. However, the update was captured and mirrored by XDA Recognized Dev. . . READ ON »

There are many more power users running Android than other, more brand-loyal “Sheeple” platforms. Because of this, it should come as no surprise that the Android community is quite familiar with the awesomeness that is Reddit. A while ago, we talked a bit about a Reddit AMA session held by the awesome folks behind the popular Paranoid Android ROM. Now, there’s another Reddit AMA that may be of interest to you, and it’s with the HTC Product Team.
During the AMA session, various Redditors asked a wide variety of questions including update timing and availability, the foundations of Sense UI’s framework, and even the design inspiration behind various products like the HTC One a. . . READ ON »

In its relatively short lifespan, the highly regarded HTC One has proven to be no stranger to expedient software updates. The device, which initially launched with Android version 4.1, saw a rather expedient update to KitKat on its developer and unlocked editions just one month after the release of Google’s latest OS.
Naturally, carrier-branded updates are taking a bit longer, but HTC has already owned up to and apologized for this. To that end, we’ve already seen the update start rolling out to carrier-branded devices on Sprint and Verizon. But since 4.4.2 has already been live for European devices, it was only a matter of time before the developer and unlocked models also gained a tas. . . READ ON »

In late November of last year, we were all quite surprised to see that certain variants the HTC One became the first heavily-skinned devices to receive the KitKat lovin’. Sure, the formerly Googorola Moto X already had the privilege of enjoying the KitKat goods for some time. But let’s face it, the Moto X’s skin is essentially as close to stock Android as you can get without being on stock Android.
Unfortunately, the early KitKat availability for the HTC One applied only to the developer / unlocked phones and to its GPe variant, rather than any carrier-branded devices. Now, Verizon HTC One owners can sing a little victory song, as their devices can now enjoy the official KitKat lovin’. . . . READ ON »

Ever since Android 4.4 KitKat was released on Halloween of last year, the race has been on for device manufacturers and carriers to deliver the update goods as expediently as possible. OK, fine—that last part (“carriers”) is a bit of a lie. But thankfully, they’re not completely resting on their laurels.
Just two days ago, we talked about HTC’s very public apology letter owning up to missing their self-imposed update schedule on the US carrier-branded variants of the critically acclaimed HTC One. In the public apology letter, John Mackenzie stated that updates would be expected to make their way to consumer devices within the next week or two. Now in a strange twist of fa. . . READ ON »
