The European HTC One M8 has started to receive its first major post-release software update — the second in total, following the launch-day update that added Extreme Power Saving mode. M8 handsets in parts of Europe are getting a 66MB update to firmware version 1.54.401.10, adding a variety of stability fixes. Here's the official changelog —
- Radio stability improvement
- Camera stability
- Video highlight stability
- FM Radio stability
- Weather app barometer update
We haven't spotted any noticeable changes besides these fixes — as with any stability update, it seems most of the changes are behind the scenes. If you've updated your Euro HTC One M8 already, hit the comments and let us know if you're seeing any differences.

I still don't quite understand why that wasn't already in the phone. The only variant that had this was the Sprint M8. Kinda confused... Brought to you by the Nexus M8
The extreme power saver? It probably had to be approved by carriers in the US. Posted via Android Central App
It would be nice if they fixed the Media Link HD compatibility.. the M8 doesn't format properly and displays a black border around the whole picture, does a crappy job scaling output to the Media Link and, if you reinitialized the media link, it can't get the wifi connection info from the M8 like it does with the M7.. so it can never reconnect to the home access point. FAIL
They are using bezel as a trademark. If it is good enough for your phone, it is good enough for wherever you project your phone too... I am joking before anyone gets their panties in a bunch...
Like said in another post....
I got mine fully updated with the extreme power saver and this out of the box. moved from nexus 5 to HTCm8
just checked mine, no update available?,
This update is old news here in Germany. It came out on May 21st.
I've had an update when I first turned it on (170mb) and nothing more but I am with the 18.104.22.168 version. Can someone explain how is that possible?!

No update here in the UK. Posted via HTC One M8
Got my update on Thursday Vodafone uk
Got the update here on my Three UK M8. It has taken me from 1.54.771.5 to 1.54.771.9 Can't see any changes other than that the app drawer animation seems to have changed somehow... don't know if that's just placebo though. Also the softkey highlights seem to fade differently.
