    From the rest of Mo Versi's tweets, it appears Lollipop for AT&T M8 is scheduled for approval today (4/6) and will be available for OTA tomorrow. So hopefully you M8 users will have a sweet treat waiting in updates tomorrow morning!

    Yeah, it's either scheduled for approval today with OTA tomorrow or It'll roll out today, he wasn't really 100% clear but its a little hard to do that on twitter. I'm more inclined to say a roll out tomorrow.

    The M7 OTA didn't start until pretty late in the day, if I remember correctly. I'd expect AT&T to be just as inept in this case.

    I expect AT&T to muck it up (again) but I've got my fingers crossed for you stock M8 AT&T customers!

    No update yet, even after changing the time to April 30. AT&T said there was no update showing for Lollipop for the HTC one m8. My M7 has it already. Hopefully when it does update it's without many issues.

    The update is not affected by your phone's time and date but rather by the server time and date. If customer service says there's no update, there's probably no update today. AT&T has to get faster with their updates. Maybe less bloat and more emphasis on making sure it works properly?

    Until the server begins to push the update, checking for it does nothing really. Customer service usually has no idea there is an update until the moment it starts or even after.

    Honestly, watching for a tweet from HTC's Mo Versi is probably the best thing. He usually announces when update starts or they've gotten approval. AT&T may put up a notice on their blog, but I wouldn't count on much communication from them period.

    Something tells me we aren't getting it tomorrow judging by AT&T and HTC's silence.

    I'm getting a new phone on Wednesday so it looks like I won't see lollipop on the M8. Pretty sure this next phone is also going to be my last AT&T phone with the way things have been going with them.

    You'd think that any novelty AT&T has gotten out of watching deadlines go wooshing by would have worn off by now.

    I highly doubt they care about the updates. It's time, manpower and wages for an update to a phone people already have. What are you going to do? Just walk away and get a new phone somewhere else? That isn't remotely cheap or practical.

    Software update don't make carriers money, new subscribers do. Until the OEM's put their feet down and demand more timely updates it's only going to get worse. Either Google needs to take better control of the update process and pressure the carriers or someone like Samsung needs to say 'Get it together, get the updates out, our you won't see another Galaxy phone on your network for years.'

    I don't see either happening anytime soon.

    As much as I love Android, you have to admit Apple does updates way better. Android is an endless update cycle, you are always behind. No sooner than you get your update (assuming you do) Google releases another one.

    Apple owns all of the power over the carriers. If a carrier did not follow Apple's rules, they would threaten to leave the carrier, which could cripple the carrier.

    I hope we are getting 5.0.1 at least.

    Google also has the unfortunate issue of Google makes the code, then it has to go to the OEM's to tinker for a few months and then it has to go to the carrier. Apple just makes all in house and send it out.

    I checked for an AT&T update on my phone and it said to check back in 2 hours and 15 minutes.
    Usually it tells me to check back in 24 hours.

    To check for updates immediately go to Settings, select Apps, then scroll to the "All" tab. Search for "htcdm", and press clear data.

    It's the carriers who delay the updates for Android. Apple handles their updates themselves, but the actual carrier has to push the updates for Android, and that means that they can add their own bloat to it. So you get all the crapware on the phone in addition to the actual software update, and very often the carrier screws up their update process due to either the bloat they've added or some change they've made. HTC released the Lollipop software for the M8 months ago. If you don't have it yet, blame your carrier, not HTC or Google. Google Play Edition M8s have been on Lollipop since right after Lollipop came out.

    AT&T ought to care about keeping their customers happy, or they could decide to go with another carrier. It's easy and relatively inexpensive to unlock an HTC phone to work on T-Mobile or Ptel. You don't even need to unlock it to use H2O or one of the other AT&T MVNO's.

    I'm using H2O and I'm very happy with them.
