When the first reports of the M9 overheating came to light, many forum users began a collective joke-round calling the phone a popcorn machine, a grill, and other unoriginal remarks that we’ve seen with every device that presents sign of overheating, from gaming consoles to graphics cards. In this sense, the internet is not very inventive, and the cycle of rehashed jokes re-surfaces on different products every year or so. This time it was the M9’s turn and it was...
Your HTC One Max Hasn’t Received its Official KitKat OTA Yet? Here’s a Mirror!
The gargantuan HTC One Max is HTC’s answer to Samsung’s Galaxy Note line. And while it lacks the S Pen functionality of the aforementioned ‘phablet,’ the One Max is a viable alternative for those looking for a traditional smartphone experience on a very large device.
A few days ago, the European version of the HTC One Max started receiving an OTA update to Android 4.4.2. And then some time yesterday, the Sprint variant of the device started receiving Android 4.4.2 as well.
The update for the European version of the device comes in at software version 2.61.401.3 and baseband version 1.54.401.1. The Sprint version received its update to software version 2.09.651.1 with baseband version 1.48.50.0109. And although they feature different version numbers, these updates both pack Android 4.4.2, laced with custom HTC’s Sense 5.5 UI. Sadly, it’s not Sense 6, but we’re not too far off from an official update.
As expected, these updates are being delivered in stages, which means that not every device will receive the update good immediately. Luckily, the community has stepped up by mirroring the updates so that everyone can get in the action, regardless of whether or not it’s officially their time.
The update mirrors for the Sprint update come courtesy of XDA Senior Members YoungAceAtlanta and Jm@n, who mirrored the update on Google Drive and Android File Host. On the other hand, the update for the European version of the device was mirrored by Senior Member pradeepvizz over on Android File Host.
If you’re running either the Sprint or International version of the device and would like to update to KitKat but haven’t yet received the OTA, head over to the mirrored update links above to get in on the action.

It is all well and good stating figures, but what does $20 million of crowd funding mean for a company? The Pebble Time just recently ended their Kickstarter with over 4000% of their initial request which was just $500,000. This level of funding is unprecedented for Kickstarter and it passed $1 million in less than an hour bringing with it a level of fame unavailable to many other OEMs. Produced by the Pebble Technology Corporation (PTC), the Pebble Watch has...
