Your HTC One Max Hasn’t Received its Official KitKat OTA Yet? Here’s a Mirror!

The gargantuan  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.

Device Review: No.1 X1 Rugged Smartphone

We are almost at the end of Q2 for 2015, and we have seen most of the flagship phones for the year already. While flagship phones usually offer bleeding-edge specs and are the most sought after phones, there is a huge market for non-flagship phones. Some offer value, others offer unique differentiating features. Today, we are going to look at the X1 phone by a Chinese company named N0.1. The company promises a truly rugged IP68 Certified phone. The device has a Quad...

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
