HTC posts Lollipop RUU for T Mobile HTC One M7

HTC just posted the full Lollipop RUU for T Mobile’s One M7. Considering that most carriers have already started rolling out Lollipop OTAs to One M7 and M8 versions, HTC decided to upload full RUUs of Android 5.0 to its own websites. These files help you update your device if you haven’t received the OTA automatically or if for some reason, you were unable to implement it (*cough like a bricked device, maybe? *cough).

To be able to install the RUU you will have to first download the 1.5GB file to your computer. You have to install HTC Sync in order to get the needed drivers to connect to your device. If you don’t feel sure about it, HTC offers helpful instructions above the download link so be relieved you can safely use them. This update will wipe your data so you should back up everything you want to save before attempting the process. After the process is completed, your T Mobile HTC One M7 will have software version 7.18.531.2.

European HTC One M7 gets update to Android 5.0.2

European HTC One M7 owners can rejoice in the fact that their devices are getting an update to Android 5.0.2 this weekend. This OS version will be running on the same Sense 6 UI version, which means that the changes will not be as drastic as they are on AOSP ROM versions.

The download itself will have 804.8MB and this means you will have to be prepared and maybe connect to a WiFi network before hitting the Download button.

This brings the ROM version to 7.19.401.2. Some devices have already received the update so most of the European owners can manually check if their phone has not prompted you yet.

T Mobile’s HTC One M8 updates to Lollipop on Monday, HTC product manager says

T Mobile’s HTC One M8 is getting its Lollipop update as soon as Monday. It’s gotta be true if Mo Versi, HTC product manager, posted it on Twitter. The company is trying very hard to attempt to bring its devices to Lollipop as soon as possible, even if certain US carrier versions take more time to update than others.

The OTA update files get sent to the first batch of One M8 units on Monday February 9th, which means that, at late as February 13th, your T Mobile One M8 should be updated to Lollipop. T Mobile HTC One M7 is still late to the Lollipop party, but considering that the One M8 AT&T and Verizon versions are still on KitKat, this is a good sign things are developing well on the T Mobile front.

HTC released the RUU file for Sprint’s One M7 manual Lollipop update

HTC just posted the RUU file so that users can now manually install Lollipop on the Sprint One M7. If yesterday we told you that the Sprint’s One M8 will be getting its update next week, now we can let you know that the Sprint M7 is also getting the Lollipop treatment. If you don’t have access to a Wi Fi network, you can manually install the update via manual download.

 

HTC One M7

 

You will have to download the 1.5 GB file to your PC and be sure the device is detected when you plug it in. Then you will have to install HTC Sync Manager where you will find the necessary drivers. Then you just launch the file and it will show an installation wizard. This action is completely re-flashing your phone, which means it is likely that everything will be deleted. Be sure to back up your files before manually updating.
