    HTC has kept its word. Specifically, last week, it was Sprint's HTC One M8 that got the upgrade. We were told that it would be within this week that the manufacturer's latest phone on the Now network would do the same ditty. Funnily enough, it did, after T-Mobile launched its Marshmallow upgrade for the LG G4. HTC One M9 units on Sprint have begun to receive over-the-air updates to Android 6.0. That's pretty much the story right there. As with the One M8 and LG G4, Sprint is the first US carrier to update its variant of the One M9 to Marshmallow. AT&T, T-Mobile Verizon users will have ...

    The original NVIDIA Shield Tablet had Android Marshmallow coming to it. The update was billed as not having much adulteration, but it was apparently not tinkered around with enough. Shield owners who have received the update have reportedly lost Wi-Fi connection. The company posted in its forums that it was stopping the OTA roll-out to investigate why those problems are happening. It has suggested to those affected that they should reboot, then factory reset, then powering off their tablets for a few hours. Users then subsequently found that the Wi-Fi MAC address set to 02:00:00:00:00:00, ...

    HTC promised short lead times for the One A9's Android updates. 15 days, in fact. Turns out that BlackBerry's running on its own speedy pace, too. We told you about the unlocked BlackBerry Priv notching its first security update on December 1. It's been 14 days since then and we now see AT&T coming up with its tailored-update. All the same camera and performance improvements touted with the initial release are here in the Big Orange flavor. Today's also the day when BlackBerry's suite of apps get its updates on the Play Store. Canadian carriers Bell, Telus and Rogers sent out OTAs on ...

    Back to the wave of Marshmallow that will be tiding towards many Android OEM releases in the future (including the HTC One A9): we told you about Polish LG G4s preparing for their updates to version 6.0. Those phones were to be the first existing non-Nexus phones to get an OTA update. Not exactly anymore. LG Poland responded to a customer's question on its Facebook page: One user below the official response commented that the Marshmallow update was available on the LG Bridge PC interface suite. We aren't certain what the technical issue is nor how long it will take before the OTAs start ...

    My goodness gracious, it's been a hectic couple of weeks in the Android world. We had the Google event in San Francisco prior to the public release of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. CyanogenMod modders pounced on the sugar and started working on the 13th iteration of their firmware. And all of this time, we've been getting word of phones and phones and phones being promised the jump to 6.0. The Google Play edition HTC One M8 has been verified by Mo Versi, the company's Vice President of Product Management, to be on the list. There's no pinpoint on the calendar, though: @athreya7777 M8 GPE ...

    With the Motorola-made Nexus 6 starting to arrive in customer's hands, the Nexus 4 is hardly noteworthy anymore. It's screen was a measly 720p and measured 4.7-inches with a pixel density of less than 320. With a quad-core Snapdragon APQ8064 processor clocked at 1.5GHz and an Adreno 320 GPU, LG's Nexus 4 was a powerhouse - back in its day. It shipped with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, but got fairly timely updates all the way up to Android 4.4.4 KitKat. Then tragedy struck. Google's support window on devices follows the industry standard of about 18-months. The Nexus 4 was announced in October ...

    Google started selling their Nexus 4 and tablets with Android 4.2 earlier today -- though the ordering process hasn't been ideal. Another special treat was the beginning of Google's roll-out of Android 4.2 to Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 owners. As with all updates, the Android 4.2 roll-out will come to your device when it's your turn in line. We're not that patient, so of course we found out how to get the official OTA update and flash it on our devices without having to wait in that dreaded line! First off, like any other "flashing" procedure, you assume the risk of potentially bricking your ...
