AT&T and T-Mobile HTC One KitKat update has been approved [Update: rolling out!]

February 23, 2014

HTC One Review

Update (2/23): After first going live for T-Mobile yesterday, the update has now started rolling out via AT&T’s network as well!

Following on the heels of Sprint and Verizon, it looks like Android 4.4.2 KitKat is on its way to the T-Mobile and AT&T versions of the HTC One!

According to Mo Versi, HTC’s Executive Director of Product Management, both networks have given technical approval to the Android 4.4 update. Judging by how quickly things went down for Verizon, once approval is given, its only a matter of days (or even hours) before the update starts rolling out.

 

 

So what’s new with the Android 4.4.2 update? Obviously the biggest change is Android 4.4.2 and all the goodies that come with KitKat. Aside from this, the HTC One is also receiving Sense 5.5, which includes several HTC specific changes such as camera improvements, the ability to turn BlinkFeed off, gallery changes and much more. We also imagine that there are at least a few minor carrier-specific changes as well.

 

 

We’ve yet to hear any reports from AT&T or Sprint users that suggest the update is live, but hopefully the wait isn’t a long one. When it doubt, you can always check manually for an update by going to your device’s settings.

So how about it, anyone get the update yet? If so, which carrier are you on?

      If AT&T customer I would not get too excited yet. They are known to be last and drag feet with Updates.

        I’ve got new Note 3 with AT&T and no update yet. But I still like 4.3 jellybean, so not getting impatient about it.

      • ahpompeep

    It sucks. No longer supports Adobe Flash. Any news, or blog sites that use it cannot be viewed. That’s just for starters. No longer have options to set lock screen picture. You must use Google Now if you plan to set Google search widget on home screen, which I hate. Too gimmicky and unnecessary. Not happy.

    • Amine Elouakil

      No support for Flash but that was the case since the 4.2.2 update.
      You can still set lock screen picture and you set a quick toggle widget by sliding from left to right on lock screen, as for google now that due to kitkat, not to sense

  • Realspear

    AT&T must be having trouble loading on bloatware. I’m switching when my contract is up, this is the last straw.

  • Shane

    That’s great but im in Ireland and have been patiently waiting for the update for the past 2 months, when should I get it?

    • Amine Elouakil

      The updates was already released in for while in EU, unless you have a carrier looked phone and if that’s the case you need to ask your carrier

  • Jesse

  • Vara

  • Angel hernandez

    • ronald gibson

    • Matt Phillips

      I haven’t received mine either on T-Mobile, anyone know why this could be? I’m a hundred percent stock with stock recovery..

    Been using it for a little bit now. Some bugs throughout, unfortunately. The easiest of them to fix is the battery problem (And is potentially caused by any major update).

    Unfortunately, there is a call routing bug which automatically starts random calls in speakerphone mode. As one would imagine, this is very unpleasant (painful) if you happen to put the phone to your ear.

    I presume, as this bug could have a potential health risk, they will fix it quick. Keep your fingers crossed. :-)
