HTC One

Minor OTA bumps the software version up to 1.29.651.10, update is pushing out now

Sprint and HTC are pushing out a software update for the HTC One. It's a minor update, addressing a few issues that the phone shipped with, which means you'll want to get this one installed as soon as you can. Specifics are:

  • BlinkFeed improvements
  • New Sprint Zone client
  • Improved Back and Home key sensitivity 

We expect BlinkFeed "improvements" and adjustments while the service is finding itself, and Sprint needs to keep their Sprint Zone client current. The interesting portion is the Home and Back key sensitivity adjustment. They can get a little wonky, especially when using a screen protector. Hopefully, changes are getting dialed in to make the buttons as responsive as the rest of the phone.

You should see notification of the update soon, and the impatient among us can manually check in settings. When you get this one, be sure to share your experience and let us know how it affects your button sensitivity.

Downloading now!

dorelse says:

Well, the buttons do seem 'bigger' and more able to pick up taps in proximity to the icon.

acrewdog says:

Did you get a bunch of app updates right after the system update?

decypher44 says:

Nevermind. I think I read your question wrong.

dorelse says:

Yeah, I sure did... wonder what that's about?

DWR_31 says:

When you do a system update workout updating all your apps first you will be prompted to update after.

Good to know that we (T-Mobile One owners) aren't the only one's experiencing shit with the capacitive buttons when a screen protector is applied.

Neal Veen says:

AT&T having the same issue. Hope both we get the update soon.

acrewdog says:

Yeah, well, you get to have unlocked phones and stuff. For once Sprint is better at SOMETHING!

Nothing gets me going in the morning like a System Update!

svinyard says:

No more Camera adjustments??

Had it this morning. Good to know updates are rolling out.

scooter7 says:

Interestingly the update removed the shortcut to the stock email app that I had on my main home. No big deal, as I just re-added it.

decypher44 says:

Since this is the first Android-based phone I've owned, I'm a little nervous about updating. There were ALWAYS glitches whenever my BB phones would update. Sometimes, very bad glitches.

Anything I need to be concerned about here?

I've been using Android for 3 years and have never had an OTA system update go bad.

decypher44 says:

Thanks for your reply!

zhecht says:

Obviously you never owned an Optimus S, where the Gingerbread update prevented the phone from charging, disabled predictive typing on the stock keyboard, corrupted SD cards inserted in the phone, and prevented the device from being recognized when plugged into Windows computers. It took them seven months to fix that one (although they eventually did provide a downgrade method to go back to Froyo).

bumpandrun says:

I have been on Android for three years and have only had a problem once and they fixed it withing a couple of days. The problem wasn't major (can't even remember exactly what it was).

JohnboyInFl says:

will it affect root status?

Dude, if you are rooted NEVER, I REPEAT NEVER take any OTA update. You could lose root permanently and never get it back. Whatever ROM you are running the owner will make a rooted version of this update and you can flash it. Hope you didn't take it already.

JohnboyInFl says:

i did not update.. i am not running a custom rom yet. just unlocked and rooted today. always ran cm on my og epic. so looking forward to the development that is happening with this device.

thanks!

Dvs1j says:

Got mine dl right now

Well, that's much better. Will test in the car later, but much better than it was.

egreenwood1 says:

The capacitive button responsiveness is a lot better. I had been swiping over the buttons because it wouldn't register taps every once in awhile. Just hit about 50 taps on each button and it worked fine on all of them. Great fix sprint!

Also my "Talk" icon finally switched over to the "Hangouts" icon!

junior38 says:

Done..

lEssence says:

What about all the others HTC one devices?

bumpandrun says:

Nothing yet but can't wait for the button fix!!

Much improved.

Gator352 says:

Only if they would fix Bluetooth!

I've found that buttons are much more responsive. Also, and I really don't know if this was an issue with many or not, but before this update, I was having a devil of a time getting the quick controls to appear in the stock browser. After this update, I'm not having that problem anymore.

Perfect HTC Thank you it fixed all the problems.

manimsoblack says:

I don't use a screen protector, sense launcher/blinkfeed or sprint zone but meh why not run it anyway.

Sleepwlkr45 says:

Yes! I was just complaining to a friend about how I couldn't work the capacitive buttons to change tracks when walking with it in my armband! She told me with my luck I would have to wait til the Next One came out! Don't even know what the other improvements are and I'm happy! And a little worried about what that says about me as a person....

Sonkway says:

Been working great since the update!

thegov says:

My music app is acting wonky now. Not showing album art, playing in a different Window that doesn't give me the option to download album art. Just different and weird.

pwinters says:

THANK YOU! This was the only thing I was getting put out with on the ONE and this definitely made a BIG difference.

mipd1980 says:

Well a little too late, I got two defective units So Samsung ended up getting my money. Sorry HTC I just could not wait for my buttons to work. I need a working phone when I buy it. No Problems with the GS4.

topper2dy5 says:
