Sprint’s HTC One M8 updated, gains Extreme Power Saving Mode

If you’ve got an HTC One M8 on Sprint, be on the lookout this morning for a system update. Sprint’s rolling out software version 1.54.651.8. And while the changelog is for whatever reason vague — stability and call performance improvements, is all it says — you’ll also see you now have the Extreme Power Saving mode.

This is an update we knew was coming, of course, as HTC previously told us it was waiting on U.S. carriers to approve the update that has already pushed out to non-U.S. versions of the M8.

Sprint Details Galaxy Tab 3 OTA Update To Software Version T217SVPUANB8

GalaxyTab3-ThumbSprint has posted the details regarding an impending OTA for the Galaxy Tab 3. This software update won’t turn the tablet into a brand new device, nor will it even bring along much in the way of fresh air, but it’s better than nothing. Software version T217SVPUANB8 will improve WiFi, install KNOX, and make the WiFi “auto network switch” default to off. That last one’s pretty specific, but Sprint says it will ultimately enable users to connect to any WiFi network regardless of its strength by suppressing the “Your internet connection is unstable” error message.

AT&T’s Optimus G Pro gets a small software update

G pro

It's still Android 4.1.2, but OTA brings small fixes and enhancements

Software version E98010n is ready for AT&T's LG Optimus Pro. The 65 or so megabyte file is still Android 4.1.2, but bumps the software version up from E98010k ("n" is more than "k" so it has to be better) and contains these few changes, per AT&T:

  • Closed Captioning: Closed captioning option will appear in full screen mode for video files that are closed captioning supported.
  • Battery and Data icons in AT&T apps folder: You now have quick and easy access from your device home screen in the AT&T folder to manage data usage or optimize battery life.
  • Dual camera: You can take still photos using the front and rear camera at the same time.
  • Video pause and resume: You can pause and resume while recording a video.
  • Smart video: With eye detection, if you stop watching a video, the video will pause.
  • Home button LED: You can set the home button LED for "Favorite" contacts. Go to "Favorite" contact > Edit > Home Button LED.
  • Unused apps: You can set notifications for unused apps at: Settings > Apps > Menu key > Unused apps.

The usual rules apply — you'll need to be on Wifi, you can only "officially" check once per day, and your battery should be nice and charged.

There's a thread in the Optimus G Pro forums where folks are discussing the update, jump in!

Thanks, Mike!

Sprint’s HTC One getting an update for HD Voice, bugfixes

Sprint HTC One update

Word on the street is that Sprint's version of the HTC One is in the midst of a software update today. Still no KitKat — we're looking to January for that — but some update is better than none. The sparse changelog (on the device, anyway) reads thusly:

  • HD Voice enhancements
  • Fixes and invalid alert message after inserting SIM card successfully

Good fixes, it sounds like. The update brings you to software version 3.05.651.5 and weighs in at about 250 megabytes.

Sprint HTC One Receives Minor OTA Update To Software Version 3.05.651.3 That Fixes "No SIM Card" Issue

HTCONE-ThumbThere are still a few months to go before the standard HTC One gets upgraded to Android 4.4, but in the meantime, Sprint is rolling out a minor OTA to the aluminum-bodied flagship. This update addresses an issue following a previous upgrade where users were presented with a “No SIM Card” message informing them that 4G LTE will not work without the required card. The phone should now also more accurately display how strong a radio signal it is picking up.

Verizon Kyocera Hydro Elite Receives First OTA Update To Software Version 2.006VZ

KyoceraHydroElite-ThumbThe Kyocera Hydro Elite may not be a top-of-the-line device, but it comes with something most phones don’t – water resistance. It also packs 4.3-inch display and a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, making it an admirable midrange handset. Now Verizon is distributing the first OTA for the phone, and while the Android version number remains the same, this update impacts many areas of the device.

KyoceraHydroElite

The touch screen’s sensitivity has been adjusted, including the virtual keyboard, and the call screen now stays lit for over 15 seconds when active.

Verizon’s LG Intuition Gets OTA Update To Software Version VS95022B, Finally Receives Android 4.1

Intuition-ThumbWhen the latest version of Android starts rolling out, it’s well-known that the vast majority of devices out there will never get updated. It’s not the best situation, but it’s one that at this point in time, many of us go into knowingly. So you LG Intuition owners out there, you already you’re not going to see KitKat come to your device, but at least you will finally now be able to leave Ice Cream Sandwich behind.

Nexus 4 software update JWR66Y detailed by T-Mobile

It looks like those carrying a Nexus 4 will soon be getting a new software update. This one has been detailed by T-Mobile and looks like it will be arriving as software version JWR66Y. Take note of that trailing Y though because the rest of the software version number looks rather similar to the previous version — JWR66V.

nexus_hero2-540x3584

The JWR66V update was the one that brought Android 4.3. This latest update isn’t quite as exciting however it is one that we suspect Nexus 4 users will be happy to get. The update is security related. In fact, that is just about all that is coming with software version JWR66Y.

The T-Mobile changelog notes the improvements as being “security” related and that is all. That aside, the update is available as of today and looks to be rather small in size — just 1.8MB. As we often see coming from T-Mobile, they make sure to point out that you should have an un-rooted device with at least 50 percent battery life before beginning the update process.

Bottom line here, this is a small update that likely just brings a few fixes. Of course, we are thankful that T-Mobile posted these details if for no other reason than it will keep users from speculating and wondering about what was included. Those with a Nexus 4 in hand can navigate to Menu -> Settings -> About device -> Software update to get the process started.

Sprint’s HTC One getting an update for HD Voice

Sprint HTC One

If you've got an HTC One on Sprint, be on the lookout for a little update starting today. Sprint's pushing software version 1.31.651.2 that has an "HD Voice enhancement" and fixes things so Sprint's ringtones will show up in the ringtones list. HD Voice, of course, requires you to be speaking to someone else who has an HD Voice-capable phone.

Verizon DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR HD MAXX receiving software update

This afternoon, Verizon is pushing out a software update to DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR HD MAXX owners-which will bring their software version up to 9.20.1. There’s not many new features, other than a few enhancements and bug fixes to SMS, Bluetooth connectivity, and GPS.

Also included in this software update seems to be a security patch, which could or could not be the “Master Key” exploit everyone has been raving about.

The software update is not available OTA yet, but should be within the next few days or weeks.

Verizon Galaxy S4 being updated to VRUAME7, not available OTA

Screen Shot 2013-07-09 at 11.09.40 AM

This morning, Samsung and Verizon pushed out a new update to the Verizon Galaxy S4, bringing it to software version VRUAME7. The way to receive this update is a bit odd, however, as you must connect your Galaxy S4 to either a Windows PC or a Mac, and use the Software Upgrade Assistant from there.

As noted by Droid-Life, the update brings some new features such as the ability to move Applications onto your SD card, as well as a transparent notification bar for any type of wallpaper. Another thing that should be noted is that this new software is unable to be rooted with the old method, so stay away from this update if you’re currently rooted.

There is no changelog available direct from Verizon yet, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled.

Sprint’s HTC One getting an OTA update

HTC One

Minor OTA bumps the software version up to 1.29.651.10, update is pushing out now

Sprint and HTC are pushing out a software update for the HTC One. It's a minor update, addressing a few issues that the phone shipped with, which means you'll want to get this one installed as soon as you can. Specifics are:

  • BlinkFeed improvements
  • New Sprint Zone client
  • Improved Back and Home key sensitivity 

We expect BlinkFeed "improvements" and adjustments while the service is finding itself, and Sprint needs to keep their Sprint Zone client current. The interesting portion is the Home and Back key sensitivity adjustment. They can get a little wonky, especially when using a screen protector. Hopefully, changes are getting dialed in to make the buttons as responsive as the rest of the phone.

You should see notification of the update soon, and the impatient among us can manually check in settings. When you get this one, be sure to share your experience and let us know how it affects your button sensitivity.

Via: Sprint Community. Thanks, ahaxton!

LG Revolution Gets [Minor] OTA Update – Software Version VS910ZVB, Actually Removes Bloat

LG-Revolution-Verizon

Verizon just posted up some software update documents for the LG Revolution, one of the aging first-gen LTE handsets that debuted on the network way back in 2011. The software version is VS910ZVB, as opposed to the build that rolled out a year ago  – VS910ZV9.

zv

The new build includes some OS security fixes, removes quite a few pieces of bloatware, and updates Google Maps Services. Given the removal of bloat and patching of holes, this may well be the last update the Revolution ever sees. I’m sort of surprised it got this far. You can expect the update to roll out to what few Revolutions remain on stock software over the next few weeks.

AT&T LG Optimus G getting an Easter update

AT&T LG Optimus G

A quick heads up for you owners of the AT&T LG Optimus G — there's a software update rolling out today. As reported in our Optimus G Fourms, you'll still be on Android 4.0.4 (build IMM76L), and you'll now have software version E97011c. Other than that, we can't quite tell you what's changed. 

So the wait continues for some Jelly Bean love for the AT&T Optimus G, but some update is better than no update. 

We've got the updated about screen after the break should you deem it worth a gander.

Thanks, Tim!

The Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 is receiving its update to software version VRBMB1, a day after the change log for the latest build was posted online. The Android 4.1.2 update weighs in at 150MB and is currently being pushed over the air to owners of the handset.

Expected changes include keyboard and Bluetooth enhancements, the ability to use the camera while placing a call, and a manual refresh on the lock screen stock ticker.

OG Droid Incredible random reboot fix now rolling out

Android Central

The original Verizon/HTC Droid Incredible is rapidly approaching its third birthday, but if you've still got one knocking around then there's a new update you should be downloading. Software version 4.08.605.19 — still based on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, by the way — has begun rolling out this morning, according to reports from the Android Central forums and tipster emails.

Verizon's official changelog shows only one notable difference in this new software, and that's a fix for random reboots on the device. So it's great — if a little strange — to see this kind of a fix being rolled out for such an old handset. OG Dinc owners, keep a look out for that OTA notification this morning, and be sure to hit the comments so we know how many of you are still out there!

Sony Xperia T Jelly Bean update rolling out now

Sony Xperia T

Just one day after passing through certification at the PCTRB forum, the Jelly Bean update for the Xperia T has started pushing out to users. This is an unusually quick turnaround from certification to going live, usually taking a couple of weeks. It's all the more surprising considering Sony put out an alpha release of the software just a week ago. That being said, we're not going to complain about more users getting their hands on Jelly Bean. The final update is software version 9.1.A.0.489, which consists of Android 4.1.2 and the 3.4.0 kernel.

Its unclear which regions this rollout is starting in, but XperiaBlog notes that some users in the Netherlands have it. Considering the speedy push for the T, we can hopefully see confirmation of the update coming for the TX and TL soon as well.
