    I'm refusing the update simply because I don't want the restaurant "ads" popping up on it.

    You can turn those off. It's a little hidden though. Highlights>Settings>Notification on Lockscreen>uncheck Meal time bundle.

    Ah, ok. Are the preview images on the Play store similar to the darkness you mentioned? If not, could you post a screen shot? I know it already darkens the wallpaper before this update, so I'm curious how bad it is.

    That's at my brightness turned up at half. I like the customizing but dimming the wallpaper makes it look terrible now

    On the previous lockscreen update, they only updated the lockscreen clock widget, and the new clock widget wasn't clear on bright wallpapers.

    So in the latest update they dimmed the lockscreen wallpaper, in order for the clock widget to be more visible.

    They handled the issue wrong, as what they should've done is give the user the options to modify the lockscreen clock and wallpaper. As what they did is force a none-changeable settings on us.

    I don't have what you guys are talking about in my M8 (factory unlocked / without contract) so I guess HTC has nothing to do with it. It could be related to your carriers.
