AT&T HTC One M8 set to score Android 5.0 Lollipop starting April 7

HTC's Mo Versi took to Twitter this evening to announce that the company has received technical approval on the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the AT&T One M8, with the OTA scheduled to begin on April 7.

It's been a long wait, and it probably didn't help knowing that the One M7 on AT&T scored Lollipop a week ago, but One M8 owners on the carrier will finally be able to enjoy all of the things Lollipop brings to the table including a new multitasking UI, revamped notifications, and the lovely Material Design starting tomorrow.

Once you snag the update, be sure to head over to our One M8 forums and let us know how Lollipop is treating you.

  • April 7 of what year?
    J/k lol Posted via the Android Central App
  • Not sure if I want to to unroot and give up xposed.... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Xposed is now available for lollipop. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Really? I thought everyone has had it for months Posted via the Android Central App
  • A couple days before my s6 edge arrives.... Just so awesome! Wow...smh From my M8 OR NEXUS 5
  • They want you to buy a new phone, not get free updates. They were waiting on the new shipments to go out.
  • Doubtful.
  • Not really. Do they want you to spend money, or receive an update and be like "well I guess I can hold onto this phone for a little while longer" Takes just a little bit of common sense to figure it out
  • Att doesn't make much on the devices. They don't make a cent on Apple devices and the margin on androids is under $100. - worked in inventory in a retail store. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Same here (S6 reg) Hopefully that means I get a little better battery life for a few days. Been absolute crap on my M8 recently. Posted via Android Central App
  • You may have a rogue or poorly written app sucking the battery. It takes 36 hours for me to get down to 50%. Taking a look at the battery manager may give some clues, and you can disable any suspect apps without uninstalling to see if they are the culprit. Posted via the Android Central App
  • You sir or madam are in the minority for phone usage. Most of us probably get around 12 hours give or take. Posted via the Android Central App
  • He's in the minority without a doubt, but 12 hours is a little too far on the other extreme to be the average.
    My G3 which is not known for steller battery life lasts about 18 - 20 hours on average and that's with fairly average usage I average 4 - 4 1/2 hours SOT a day. If your only getting 12 hours you may be a very heavy user, have some rogue apps sucking up your battery or your battery itself may be on it's way out.
  • I give it some moderate to hard use, but then I also do things like turn on extreme power save mode when I go to bed. I don't think I could kill it in 12 hours, unless I let Google maps run in the background, lol. Perhaps my particular device is a freak though.. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I know right Posted via the Android Central App
  • Dont downlpad it. Battery life blows. Posted via the Android Central App
  • This is gonna go well... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Doesn't Lollipop 5.0 have a memory leak or will it be safe to install 5.0 on my M8? I don't want to willingly install a version that has a known memory leak, and everything I've read says that 5.0 has this problem.
  • Hopefully, it's fixed. Perhaps one good thing about getting updated last.
  • Running Lollipop 5.0 on my M7 and have not noticed any issues with memory leaks. If anything, the phone seems more stable, as prior to the update I was getting a number of "Play Services has stopped unexpectedly", "Hangouts has stopped unexpectedly" and in the days since the update, no errors. Overall, 5.0 has made my M7 feel like a new phone. The full Material Design experience is a excellent.
  • AT&T sucks when it come to update.Galaxy S5 will probably never get Android 5.0
  • I am downloading it now... 549.7 MB. Bumped the date to 4.8.15... Very slow down load speeds though Posted via the Android Central App
  • Also seeing slow download speeds. Only at 15% after about 10 min.
  • Installing now.... Fingers crossed Posted via the Android Central App
  • Oh wow I didn't actually expect this to ever happen Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hopefully they got all the bugs worked out of it... We'll see.. 40 apps to optimize yet Posted via the Android Central App
  • It's 5.0.2 and Sense 6... Posted via the Android Central App
  • I have a feeling that Sense 7 won't drop til the 5.1 update, so sad. Last night I had a update reminder, so maybe that's lollipop waiting for me. Haven't updated it though, wanted a fresh install when lollipop dropped and now I can. =) Posted via Android Central App
  • You know what? I've given up on my Note edge getting it. Ridiculous. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Achingly slow download, 50% in 25 minutes. I seriously hope it fixes the MMS/Group Messaging problems.
  • They'll probably do the same thing with the S5 that they're doing with the M8. Release the update a couple of weeks after the new phone comes out so people will buy it instead of waiting for an update.
  • Very slow update....It had better fix the MMS issues!!!
  • Just finished my update at&t in Boston. HTC m8 Posted via the Android Central App
  • Anyone have a link to manually download update?
  • go into your settings and push the date and time forward a day
  • No sim installed currently. I am looking to MANUALLY download and install.
  • Go to the HTC website. The have the manual download process there, but it will do a hard reset in the process of manually loading the ROM. Posted via the Android Central App
  • This doesn't work. Have done it multiple times and still don't have the update.
  • Anyone else's GPS turn on randomly? Keeps turning on on my phone and its really annoying. Posted via the Android Central App
  • YES! Have you figured out how to fix this?
  • Same here and I am sick of it. I have tried to block access to GPS to virtually all apps including weather, but the localization switch turns on randomly. I am seriously considering giving up on HTC and Android and going back to BlackBerry. I simply need to have my phone under control!
  • I still don't have Lollipop on my AT&T M8. No it isn't a rooted device and no I don't want to reset it as I don't want to rebuild all my accounts and data. WTF AT&T!!!!???
  • More than 2 months went by and my HTC One M8 from AT&T has not received any OTA update for Android 5.0. I am still running Android 4.4.2. Does someone here knows why is that? I bought this phone as internationally unlocked, may that be the reason why I am not getting the proper updates? Thanks guys!
