htc m8 android update

Any rumours about when we'll see the Android 4.4.3 or 4.4.4 updates on our Rogers phones?

Hello christalweb

Unfortunately at this moment there isn't any information when Rogers will release this update. It should happen soon tho. Stay tuned or look on Mobilesyrup or Rogers " OS Upgrade Schedule" thread.

Re: htc m8 android update

Thanks for a response Meowmix but that's not a very encouraging response.


Based on the OS upgrade thread there are no plans to upgrade the M8 at all. And all I hear on sites like Mobilesyrup is how the majority of the US carriers have started releasing the upgrade or have at least reviewed and approved it. Many UK carriers have the upgrade being sent out.

I suspect that I'll have unlocked the bootloader and rooted and maybe even have Android L on this new M8 before Rogers makes any announcement.

That's kinda sad, huh?

Hello christalweb

The OS Upgrade Schedule thread is made that once Rogers is done their testing and about to release it, they post it on there. They won't say anything or post anything until they know the testing it done and ready for it.

That is because some carriers in the states and Europe dont need to get involved other then testing. This is one reason why they get it faster.

I do see your point tho.

Yeehaa

I got the upgrade today. So much for the OS upgrade thread.

 

Differences - improvements??

mobile network, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth performance optimization, all security upgrades from Android 4.4.4.

HTC Sense has been tweaked as well. Boomsound, Extreme Power Saving Mode, Motion Launch, and the Quick Setting menu have all been optimized.

The upgrade also includes updates for the native HTC apps. They include the camera, the image gallery, the settings menu, as well as HTC Sync Manager

Re: htc m8 android update

Any body who had downloaded this update had any performance issues? I would like to download it but I am put off because I've heard battery performance is worse... I think I'll wait till "Android L" comes out... If any body can share their experiences good and bad of the HTC ONE M8 update (4.4.3) I'd appreciate it...Thanks

Hello mwake

When i had the HTC one m8 and did the update, battery life seemed better and the phone ran a bit smoother then it did before.

Please do remember, everyone using the device has different opinion and usage so battery life will be different with everyone.
