Unlocked HTC One M8 now receiving Android 4.4.3 update, carries same security fixes as 4.4.4


Unlocked HTC One M8 2.22.1540.3 update

It was last week HTC product manager Mo Versi revealed via his Twitter profile that — after hitting the HTC One M8 Developer Edition — owners of the unlocked HTC One M8 should be expecting an update to Android 4.4.3 late this week.

Right on schedule, owners of the region-free unlocked HTC One M8 are now reportedly receiving the update that, while it may not be the 4.4.4 update as found on Nexus/Google Play/Motorola devices, includes the same SSL security fixes that 4.4.4 addresses in the first place.

The update brings the software build to 2.22.1540.3 and is actually quite large, tipping the scales at a little over 592MB. That being said, if you want to make the process as speedy as possible, connect to WiFi and jump into your Settings > About > Software updates > Check now.

    1. But Sprints 4.4.3 wasn’t nearly as large..

    2. Sprint is the fastest carrier for updates out of the Big 4. 1. Sprint, 2. T-Mobile, 3. AT&T, 4. Verizon. HTC is the fastest of the mainstream OEMs though.
