Early this morning, HTC One M8 users on T-Mobile were greeted with a prompt notifying them that a system update, build 2.22.531.5, is now available for their device. The update, which brings the firmware up to Android 4.4.3 seemed to hit rather suddenly given the absence of the usual support docs giving users a heads up ahead of time. No worries. We’ve already been updated and here’s what you can expect from the 4.4.3 update:
HTC One M8 2.22.531.5 software update (582.04MB)
- Android 4.4.3
- Security fixes
- Mobile network
- Gallery (Image Match)
- Settings (Power History)
- HTC Sync Manager
Sense experience optimization
- HTC BoomSound
- Extreme Power Saving Mode
- Motion Launch
- Quick Setting
IMPORTANT: Once you’ve updated, make sure to check for another software update to find an important GPS update waiting for you (pictured above).
You can manually check for software updates by opening up the Settings app and selecting About > Software updates > Check now (also handy if should you not feel like waiting for the update to hit your device). So far, our One M8 is behaving normally, but should you encounter any bugs or issues, feel free to let us know down below.
We should also note that HTC included all the security fixes from Android 4.4.4 in their 4.4.3 update, so don’t feel like you’re missing out on anything.
