    At this point, I would not be surprised at all to see them offer a free Marshmallow update for your HTC One M8 with the purchase of a brand new HTC 10.

    I have grown so tired of waiting for this "coming real soon now!" update.

    That's hilarious. It probably won't even be out by the time the HTC 10 comes out.

    I've been wondering the same thing. We've had quite a few false starts in terms of ETAs, and now Mo Versi (for HTC) has grown awfully silent on Twitter. There have been notable issues with Marshmallow on this phone with the other carriers, so I do understand if AT&T is working through those. I've been with AT&T for many years, and to their credit their software upgrades have always been free of glitches. That said, by the time we get the software I'll be ready to get a new device.

    Related note: hoping the M10 is an amazing step forward so I don't have to succumb and get the S7 Edge.

    I think in one of the other Marshmallow att threads somebody posted a tweet from Mo and it talked how we can expect the release of Marshmallow around the end of April

    OK, an update just hit my M8. I hope it is the precursor to the fabled Marshmallow upgrade.

    Yeah I see the little "Device management is running" on my M8.. this generally means an update is imminent!

    I saw that as well and am certainly hopeful, but I'll believe it when I see it. It's never my style to be skeptical or cynical, but there have been multiple update time frames prior to this that weren't met. Fingers crossed

    Mo Versi replied to someone on Twitter about a similar update for the M9. He said "it's the update required prior to the Marshmallow OS. We're entering the lab with M update next." I'm guessing the same is true for the M8.

    No idea if this means anything, but when I checked for additional updates the timer said to check back in just under 6 hours, not the usual 24. It's the first time I've seen it do that.

    Mine did the same (though it was 7-ish hours this morning). My first thought was the incremental update pushed to the phone simply didn't reset whatever internal setting controls the "Check for Updates" process. Hopefully you're right, though, and in a few hours we'll all get a much-needed REAL update!

    Well if Mo Versi mentioned an update would come by the end of April, it WOULD be a little strange for it to arrive 3 weeks beforehand. I guess we'll see!

    Just as I expected: "Current software is up to date. You may check back in 23 hours 58 minutes."

    End of April, here we come.

    Same here I'm not usually a conspiracy theorist, but I wonder if this is all intentional with the M10 reveal on April 12th. Is AT&T delaying the Marshmallow release so their customers all get the newest device? I'm sure there ARE bugs, but how come the other carriers beat AT&T to the punch by multiple weeks? Shouldn't AT&T just release a 99.8% perfect version and then push some patches out later on? My knowledge of smartphone programming is admittedly near zero, but it can't be this hard.

    I hate when my phone automatically updates even when that **** is shut off. This is the last carrier phone I'll ever get. Received an update with no clue what it was and no link explaining anything. Thanks AT&T.

    I got an update yesterday as well, and got all excited as the apps were updating. Then I checked the software version afterwards and was disappointed to see it still at 5.0.2. It did change something though, as the phone feels like it's been turbocharged.

    Update summary
    Effective April 7, 2016, AT&T released a software update for the HTC One (M8) (0P6B120). The update is available to customers to download via Firmware Over The Air (FOTA). A Wi-Fi connection is required.

    What's changing?
    New FOTA enhancement – support for 1GB+ file size (OMA DI Client Update).

    So, this update will permit the larger Marshmallow update to occur, some day. Maybe.

    I did the update. It seems the phone is a little faster. Not sure what it exactly did, but it did something good for my phone.

    Agreed. My phone had become incredibly sluggish of late. Obviously age and use play the biggest part in that, and don't get me wrong it's still not zippy, but the update did make a noticeable difference.

    I'm guessing since the update changed how the phone handles storage allocation, a minor speed increase is a pleasant side effect. Certainly beats the alternative.

    I wonder if the fact that ATT is not carrying the HTC 10, that ATT is not updating their devices to Marshmallow.

    According to Mo Versi, the product manager for HTC, it's still in the works. The recent storage allocation update is supposed to be the precursor to the Marshmallow upgrade. AT&T is the bottleneck once again.

    Would love to hear everyone's thoughts in this threat on why AT&T decided not to carry the HTC 10. I believe AT&T is the only major carrier opting out. It seemed like HTC phones were big sellers, so why the sudden change of heart?
