    HTC Software Updates | HTC United States

    HTC's software update site has Verizon listed at the certification stage. Considering it says the same thing for Sprint (which is getting the update now), methinks Verizon users should get it soon.

    (Of course, Verizon is infamous for their overly thorough certification process, so I could be wrong. :-P)

    And Lollipop is infamous for its ability to break things, so I wouldn't care if it came with a $100 bill - I still wouldn't update to it.

    No rush for me. I rather wait a couple weeks to see reviews before updating. I do not want to have a phone with all kinds of problems. Remember what happen to the nexus 5 & 7 with the 5.0. By the way I have 5.0.2 in my nexus 7 and there is nothing that make me say wow. Kitkat is running fine on my M8.

    It won't make a big difference until they update to Sense 7 after the M9 is released. So it will be awhile before we will get the full Lollipop experience on the M8, which is disappointing 😔

    It's actually been updated to stage 3...along with all other carriers so I'm inclined to believe it's gonna hit soon.

    You guys can go ahead and load it up when it comes. I'll sit on the sidelines for a week or 2 to see if anyone's phone goes thermonuclear.

    And hope it doesn't force install itself. I've seen that before.

    I will do a factory reset before I install it, as I personally believe anyone should do before they install a major software update. (In the case of Android, that means anytime the dessert name changes.) I think a lot of issues could be avoided that way.

    I wondered if it is best to do a factory reset before or after a major update. I have always done a factory reset after the update.

    Thanks

    I have no evidence or data to back it up. It just logically makes sense to me that wiping the phone before the update would prevent the possibility of any old data becoming corrupt in the transfer to the new OS. A reset after the update would probably be fine too, but I'm not sure of it.

    I've been thinking about it. I have 5.02 on my N7 and the way that Sense is set up, I really don't see a wow factor to 5.02. Almost like....meh...

    Well, it looks like it wasn't as near as I thought it was. It's still 2-3 weeks away. Oh well. My phone is running Kit Kat just fine. I'd rather Verizon take their time to make sure everything works as it should.

    I remember reading that there was a delay with HTC and Google that affected some carriers. I would rather wait awhile and get something good. I see a lot of upset Samsung galaxy S5 owners out there on Verizon.

    You really think handing the software over to Verizon so they can load their bloatware on it is a good thing? I don't see them adding anything else to the mix that will make it better than what we've seen already. Google's part is to make it better, not Verizon's.

    True, but this time also includes extensive testing by Verizon to make sure the device works well with its network (and just works well, period). They don't want to release an update then get flooded with customer service calls because the update killed people's WiFi.
