Marshmallow rollout for AT&T’s HTC One M9 and M8 begins now
Owners of one of HTC’s last two pre-10 flagships subscribed to America’s second largest carrier were already growing impatient with AT&T’s Marshmallow lag a couple of weeks ago, when it was finally announced technical approval would be coming soon after a “slight” delay.
That only made Ma Bell’s One M9 and One M8 users angrier, as international unlocked updates to the latest and greatest Android iteration started way back in December for both phones, and Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon all followed that up with major software makeovers of their own in February and March.
At long last, AT&T closes the circle today, nearly 60 days on the heels of 6.0 deployments for much lower-profile HTC handhelds like the Desire Eye, One E8 and One M8 Eye in other regions. Bet you’re on the same page as all those T-Mobile fans/AT&T trolls encouraging John Legere to put a profane Olympic tattoo on the shoulder of a track star now.
But all’s well that ends well, even when it ends so ridiculously late, and at least now you can stop complaining about the HTC 10 not getting full and proper “big four” support. That’s probably for the best, if the silver medalist intends to keep obstructing and putting off fundamental updates like this.
Let us know if you’re able to download over-the-air and install Android Marshmallow on your One M9 and M8 without a glitch, and most importantly, we want to hear about newly added carrier bloat that may have delayed the rollout. You have the floor.
