Verizon Pushing HTC Rezound Update Right Now

Rezound Update

Just yesterday, Verizon approved an update for both the DROID Incredible 2 and the HTC Rezound. While we still haven’t heard anything from Incredible 2 owners, we do have one Rezound owner that has already been pushed the update. Inside, there isn’t much to talk about. Instead, all we get from Verizon is that it brings “HTC device enhancements.” Sweet.

The update is 6.9MB and will bring the phone up to build 3.14.605.13.

Keep your eyes on that Rezound, folks!

Cheers Brian!

    This update broke the root access on my phone and I spent half the day fixing it yesterday. My phone was left half rooted and half unrooted, with the effect being that none of my root apps worked. I kept detailed notes on what exactly I did to fix the problem and get my root access back, if anyone else has this issue I’d be happy to share.

    my Rezound device died after the update and now waiting for a replacement.

  • Chomp747

    Okay just noticed a change…I have swift keyboard and the update reactivated the rezound keyboard. Had to manually start swift again.

  • xXCrushLifeXx

    I’ve noticed tht the songs are now in alphabetical order..

  • Chomp747

    My update just happened. I don’t see any changes…

  • kplg

    i saw update message but it didn’t seem to do anything when I clicked OK
    The message just disappeared…would I have seen an update process ??

  • phip2816

    Woke up to a message telling me that my HTC Rezound and been updated. However I haven’t seen a difference. Unlike the other post’s my ringtone was not changed and I have seen no adverse effects. Perhaps someone will discover the specifics.

    I think this settlement may have something to do with the update and is why there is no information about it.

    i pressed cancel on update screen and update still occurred. only obvious change was my ringtone was changed without my consent

    • Chomp747

      You’re the second person I’ve seen that comment about the ringtone. I checked mine and it’s still the same…still can’t find what they actually “updated.”

    Plus it added facial recognition!

  • seppyp

    It’s awesome! You can disable any app that you want and it will remove it from using up ram and starting up all the time.

      How??

    • Blue

      This was always there

  • Sam

    well, i noticed that i used to have ICS 4.0.1 and now its 4.0.3 and the difference between those is very minimal… just some bug fixes and alterations to the calender, accessibility, certain graphics, and apparently some camera apps (but i havent noticed those yet). at first when i turned my phone on though i freaked out because my phone lost all its widgets but i just had to restart and they came back.

  • C Berry

    Got my DINC2 update a few days ago. Can’t tell much of a difference. My world clocks disappeared and I cannot add them back.

  • RPB

    I dont know wtf some of you do with your rezound but mine works just fine after the update no wipes or resetting ringtones or anything unusual…

  • CB

    It seems like I have been getting improved battery life since the update, but it has only been ~24 hours so it’s not yet conclusive.

  • WallyIAm

    So far, the only change I’ve noticed is that the update changed my default ringtone to “VZW Airwaves.” Thanks Verizon.

  • RichK

    Downloaded the update yesterday. All went well and I see no difference. Does anyone know what the update was supposed to do?

  • jason sharp

    Got my update for Inc 2. The only thing I notice is that the mobile hot spot actually works now. There also seems to be some sort of download /file manager when download files

  • Tony Perez

    I’m waiting until someone reports that these “enhancements” really are. It’s such a subjective word! It may enhance something for VZW but not necessarily for users!

    update reset and wiped my phone……lame

  • http://twitter.com/matthew1065 matthew urban

    the incredible 2 is 4.5 mb in size

  • munchkin

    any news on the htc rhyme?!

  • reggie1225

    Update with “HTC Device Enhancements”? If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck…it’s probably a trap.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rudi-Xeno/726467137 Rudi Xeno

    Anyone have any idea what these device enhancements are?

    I’ll stick with my CM10.1. Thanks Verizon!

    • http://twitter.com/timothyjmiller Timothy Miller

      I can’t figure out how to do cm 10, Rezound is not listed, can you help me?

      • michael arazan

        Go to XDA developers, or google “xda Rezound cm10.1″

  • Greg Rodgers

    Got it about 31/2 hours ago. I cannot see anything different except…I had an annoying issue when I clicked “settings”…I would sometimes get a message “settings has stoppped Unfortunately”. This does not happen anymore.

    • JechosaCher

      as Angela explained I’m stunned that someone able to earn $7936 in a few weeks on the internet. did you look at this web page

  • Dave

    I just got the update pushed. No idea what the device enhancements are.

    • Anon

      Knowing Verizon, new bootloader encryption? ;)

  • http://twitter.com/claydos66 Mike C.

    Done.

  • Frank

    Downgrade for those on the global leak…

    • Rodys Gonzalez

      What Global Leak??

      • Greg Rodgers

        A few months back…Verizon sent a select few an update for Global Capablities. Shortly after..there was a rumor that the update to all was coming in Sept 2012. It never happened.
        The folks at XDA grabbed the update and made it available for install via RUU bootload.
        I’ve read the other day on another board that a person spoke with a rep from Verizon and was told that Global was infact coming with an upgrade to JellyBean.
        My guess is…the reason we have not been told about the “enhancements” is because JB is coming.
        HTC doing an underwraps job like they did with the HTC One.
        I hope….

    Downloading now

      You must have this site confused with xda. No one gives a crap if you’re downloading something here.

      • Justin Winker

        No need to be rude.

        “While we still haven’t heard anything from Incredible 2 owners, we do have one Rezound owner that has already been pushed the update.”

        Seems like DL cares.
