HTC One Android 4.3 Update for Verizon Approved, Here is the Changelog

The HTC One on Verizon is ready to receive its Android 4.3 update this week. Tipped to have been approved by HTC’s executive director of product management, Verizon has now posted the support documents, making everything official and giving us all of the details surrounding this update, which as been finalized as build 2.10.605.1.

In terms of new stuff after the update, users will see the ability to add their own tracks to Highlights videos. And that’s pretty much it. The rest is bug fixes for charging with a Mophie Juicepack, correction of faint ringing noise with earpieces, and the option to play purchased ringtones.  Oh, Verizon also took a moment to add more bloatware to the phone.

With approval by Verizon, I’d imagine we will see the update begin to rollout as early as today, with an extended rollout happening throughout the week.

Let us know if you see it!

  • riley2cool

    Updated on my htc one, but I noticed my phone is a tad bit slower and the battery drains faster than normal. Please hurry Kit Kat.

    • Mohammad Asad

      Same here, supposedly the update was supposed to improve battery life. Not the other way around

  • madonk

  • EgySisi

    Here are 3 MotoX codes, Expire in a couple hours. Couldn’t us them myself. Enjoy.




  • ReturnOfTheMack

    I’m running CM so this doesn’t mean much to me unless there are any new radio’s/hboot/bootloader/etc. Glad the update is out though, on to KitKat Verizon.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    I don’t understand why HTC has some 4.3 variants with 5.5 Sense UI and some stuck on 5.0

  • HowEasy

    OR I have a better idea. Just use CM and 4.4 like a good boy.

  • M3D1T8R

    $150 off Moto X Motomaker code, expires in five minutes! I couldn’t do it myself, someone use it please!


    • Cliff Lee

      Thanks a lot! I lost mine and I was trying to get one for my wife for Christmas and I used this code and it worked. Thanks for being a giver! Seriously!!!

      • Brandon Sobotta

        Awesome stuff.

    • EgySisi

      Hey, A fellow league player. Why would you ever have teemo as your picture…?

      • M3D1T8R

        Because that’s me! Almost always Teemo. Look it up. : )

  • MikeSaver

    My Moto X just lol’d

  • strikeir13

    This just makes me more happy I jumped ship to the Moto X…

  • BigDeeNY99

    It never fails.. No matter what phone I get VZ always updates every other phone…. Not waiting this time..Rooting as we speak and will load 4.3 without them. Not giving up my Note 2 for awhile. maybe for Note 4

    • Cubanito1967

      I am ready to pull the string myself and root my Note 2 also. Funny I saw that new Galaxy Gear commercial and at the end it said now compatible with such and such devices the Note 2 being one of them. Well they obviously did not mean the Verizon Note 2!

      • BigDeeNY99

        Similar thoughts when I saw it…!! I laughed!

    • T4rd

      Note 2 was Samsung’s fault, not Verizon’s, but now that other Note 2 variants have just gotten updated in the last month or so, Verizon is actually sitting on it right now.

      So I installed Beans (mostly) stock 4.3 port last night it damn does it fly compared to the 4.1 ROMs I was on before.


      This is actually Verizon’s official ROM too (which is why you have to ODIN the baseband/modem package with it too), but they just haven’t pushed it yet. Install Wanam Xposed (in the Play Store) and you can mod/theme TW to pretty much eliminate the need for a full custom ROM since you can change anything you want from within the app.

    • Blue Sun

      Load 4.3? Isn’t there a 4.4 ROM for the One?

  • Brian

    can’t wait for kitkat

    • starnovsky

      Give it another 6 months

      • T4rd

        Pretty sure HTC said the One would have 4.4 within a few months of its release. That’s probably with the exception of the Verizon One though, hah.

    • Tyler

      They said 90 days when 4.4 came out. Keyword being said.

  • AnthonyMoya

    It would be nice if it fixed the purple tint when using the camera in low light. I got a replacement because of the tint and it ended up being worse on the new one.

    • StuckOnVerizonForever

      Its cause ultrapixel sucks

      • Adrynalyne

        I doubt the hardware is the reason for the purple tint.

        • DERP

          The ultrapixel hardware IS the reason for the purple tint.

          • Adrynalyne

            Show some documentation proving that, please.

    • Kmac

      I agree the camera was the only issue for me on the One

  • gtg465x

    Haha. Verizon is sick. Their crap app is the key OS enhancement?

  • Chris Hughes

    Wait…wait to see if it breaks rumrunner if you have any interest in ever using it.

    • Josh

      I just tried running rumrunner after installing this update and I’m afraid to say it does not work.

  • Warwick

    Hell just froze over.

    • Adrynalyne

      No, with Verizon employees doing something, it actually got warmer.
