It has been one month since Android 5.1 appeared for the HTC One M8 GPe and was promised for the One M7 GPe. We are not clear about the cause of the long delay, but the update is finally here for the M7 GPe too.

HTC One M7 Android 5.1

Starting today, users can grab the LMY470 update over-the-air. The update weighs in at a substantial 280MB and will update your One M7 GPe handset to Android 5.1 Lollipop.

Android 5.1 doesn’t introduce any major new features, but does make adjustments to wireless connection set-ups, system volume controls and notifications, and introduces a small selection of new animations. HD Voice Calling, dual-SIM support and Device Protection have also been thrown in for good measure.

If you have S-OFF setup in your bootloader, you can also grab the update file to flash manually through the stock recovery. Otherwise, hammer away at that “check now” button to see if the update has come through.
