HTC Rhyme Security, Bugfix Update Going Out on Verizon

Advertisement

Last month, we turned to the streets to get some impressions of HTC’s Rhyme. Especially due to the unusual positioning the smartphone received, supposedly targeted towards sales directed at women, we wanted to see how the phone’s design and construction struck you. Perhaps by now, some of you have gone on to pick the Rhyme up for yourself; if so, be on the lookout for a new software update headed your way.

Verizon’s tipped the coming availability of the update on its support page for the phone, and an internal leak suggests it was ready to go out as of yesterday, so Rhyme users will likely see it in the immediate future if it hasn’t hit their phones already.

This release looks like it contains the security patches for the potential privacy leak HTC acknowledged last month. Beyond that, there’s also a revocation patch to deal with a recent Certificate Authority hack and a fix for Bluetooth security. Bugfixes include one related to the update process itself, as well as one stopping the inadvertent sending of certain text messages. These changes bring the Rhyme up to system software 1.26.605.11.
