Verizon HTC One OTA Update Rolling Out Without Android 4.3
While everybody is getting Android 4.3 OTA update for their HTC One, Verizon opted out from the scheme and decided to do an update without including Android 4.3. We’re talking about update version 1.10.605.10 who is going to make your HTC One run smoother and is going to reduce or eliminate the locks up which were…never reported by HTC One users. And even if an update is a subject of joy, this one is very questionable as we previously saw that HTC made the decision to update the smartphone to Android 4.3 worldwide, for both unlocked international versions, and also on regional scale for carrier locked versions including Canada and USA.
But the question remains: why did Verizon wanted to do its own update when they could very easy include the Android 4.3 update in the same equation, and why did they choose to fix something that had no problems. I mean, no serious locks up were reported by HTC One users, but still, Verizon fixed the issue. That sounds very suspicious for us and we thing this update has the role to delay the Android 4.3 update.
Anyway, the OTA update version 1.10.605.10 has 33.8 MB and if you haven’t received any notifications, you can manually check for this update by accessing Settings – About Phone – System Updates and then search for the update. In case the update is going to be found, I recommend you to connect the smartphone to a Wi-Fi network before proceeding, in order to avoid any charges by the carrier, and you will save som MB from your data plan.
There won’t be any surprises if Verizon will deliberately delay the Android 4.3 update, it always has the tendency to delay updates and remain the last carrier to receive an OS update. I just hope that this update has nothing to do with the Android 4.3 general OTA and that it will receive it as soon as possible so that everybody could enjoy the features listed for OTA version 3.22.631.1.
Please tell us if you found Verizon update version 1.10.605.10 useful and if it really fixed any previous locks and glitches you encountered.
