    Oh ****!
    They added back the "Android Security Patch Level" info box.
    "Settings->About->Software Information" now shows the level.
    And yay, running August 1!

    I called HTC and they gave me the website to go see if I have the latest version and I do so it must be updated last night or something. But I still don't understand the message

    Thanks for the tip! For once, At&t isn't blocking an update in an unlocked device.

    How could AT&T block an unbranded, unlocked device from getting an update? You're just downloading data from an HTC server to an unbranded phone.

    Ever had a Nexus device on At&t? I bought mine directly from Google and had to factory reset it every time I wanted an update because At&t's SIM blocks the update until it is approved by At&t. My Moto X was the same way too.

    Google allowed the carriers to approve firmware for the Nexus 6. It Depended on what sim you had installed when you setup the Nexus 6 on who got to have a say-so. Att has been very slow with major OTA approvals with the Nexus 6. Even now, nexus 6 phones on att are on a different update path.

    My 2nd device did that. HTC showed me how to manually update to get around it. I will never know if that gets rid of the error permanently though as I discovered that phone had a broken speaker and I got a replacement.

    Yes, I broke my first and it was replaced with UhOh. The replacement's bass speaker was dead so I received another, which has been great.

    BTW, can anyone tell me what was changed in this update? I know about the security stuff and the camera, just wondering if there's anything cool I should be aware of.

    oh, was the camera updated? the update info only mentioned the security fixes.

    Yes, the rumor of the camera exposure being expanded for up to 16 seconds turned out to be true.

    Not sure why HTC keeps hiding that. I mean I guess this way if they don't update it, will make it less noticeable for people.

    This update is for un locked HTC phones only. It's gonna be a while before the carrier versions get it.
