That Was Quick: T-Mobile Gets HTC 8X Windows Phone Update Rolling

T-Mobile’s been putting owners of the HTC Windows Phone 8X on a bit of a roller coaster ride this week, full of ups and downs. Two days ago, we saw the carrier post to its site that the Windows Phone 8 build 10211 update, already having landed on the international 8X, was coming to the US just one day later. That sounded great, but then yesterday, instead of letting the update loose, T-Mobile instead posted a follow-up message notifying users of an unexpected delay. We didn’t know precisely what the carrier’s motivation for this decision was, only that it promised that the update would be going out as soon as possible, once a few tweaks had been made. Well, we’ve been around the block enough times to know to feel a little pessimistic about that development. Imagine our surprise when today, just one day later, the update is back on and currently heading out to HTC 8X users.

Chances are, you might have seen the OTA update notification come through already, but if you haven’t, go and do a manual check for updates. There you’ll find Windows Phone 8 10211 “Portico”, all ready to go. Hopefully, whatever issues that caused T-Mobile to delay things have been resolved, and you’ll be able to update without issue.
