Can anyone from Rogers confirm when we expect to receive Windows Phone 8.1 update for HTC 8X?
The Nokia Lumia line up from Rogers already received the WP 8.1 update. Also, will the update include recently announced Update 1?
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
Quick update, it's working now! I don't know why, after downloading US language/keyboard and setting region to US, it wouldn't work. So I changed region back to Canada, rebooted, and now it works! Setting it up right now 🙂
edit: I do not have windows developer preview. This is stock from Rogers. Giving it a try now, works pretty well, this is fun!
I know verizon in the US wont be releasing theirs till October sometime, so im sure Rogers will be around the same period.
Forget it. HTC 8X user will never get windowsphone 8.1 update. Firstly they told March then july and now October. But still there is no informations about it.
Best Phone is Apple and Google phones. You will get all the updates.
No windows Guys......
Please forward this to every HTC 8x users and make them understand that windows phone is not good for update. Now a days smartphone is useless if user does not get any updates.
Straight Forward Person.
well windows websites states there IS A 8.1 upgrade for this phone available and other PHONE COMPANIES have been updating.
SO Rogers????? what is the problem..you dont want to pay for it?
you charge us enough..
I think Rogers is waiting for Windows 10. Rogers just doesn't want to provide any product support to its users. I have a 8x and an Optimus G. Both are running on ancient firmware. Avoid Rogers hardware at all cost.
Been keeping a eye on the update list and seems that it never changes sooo Darrell whats up with the windows phone update for HTC 8x windows phone..........takes any longer i might as well purchase a new phone with the update on it and to be honest bell phones seem to be looking better and better since rogers takes its sweet time..............sooo is there a definetive date not a "COMING SOON" ???
Rogers Darrel is a mod on here. He only posts update on that thread when the back end team office of head office gives him any updates. Until then he can't post anything and might not know what is going on. Hopefully he can come in and chime a bit.
@vjkumran, actually even Android phones are restricted by the carriers. Google Nexus phone maybe the only exception. Microsoft should follow Apple and push the firmware update themselves. Hopefully Rogers will give HTC 8x users the 8.1 update before Win10 is here.
I think its a combination of device manufacturers and carriers as each one has to modify the OS to their needs before releasing it. When I was looking into the HTC ONE M8 as a possible buy a lot of complaints by HTC users is that they didn't get as many updates.
According to some articles the Denim update should be out "soon"
I got tired of waiting for the Rogers updates windows phone 8.1 update 1. so I installed the Dev preview. I now get updates from microsoft directly to my phone and will probably get windows 10 however doing that to your phone can and probably voids your warranty. My phone hasn't had a warranty for a year so I don't really care. An option but definitely research the possible risks before considering the Dev Preview.
