HTC One on Sprint will receive OTA update today to version 3.04.651.2, Android 4.3

HTC One plastic siding

The Sprint-branded HTC One will receive the Android 4.3 OTA update today, along with more enhancements to HTC Sense, according to HTC America president Jason Mackenzie on Twitter:

This makes the Sprint HTC One the first US-based carrier-branded HTC One to get the update – a distinction that Sprint should be proud of, given its less-than-stellar update history. According to Sprint, the build number is now 3.04.651.2, with the following changelog:

  • Fixes issue where Swype does not automatically enter spaces in Exchange email
  • Application Updates: Sprint Zone, Visual Voicemail
  • HTC Sense stability improvements
  • Updating OS from 4.1.2 to 4.3 (Minor update)
  • Fixes issue where Swype does not automatically enter spaces in Exchange email
  • Application Updates: Sprint Zone, Visual Voicemail
  • HTC Sense stability improvements
  • Updating OS from 4.1.2 to 4.3 (Minor update)

Does anyone else find it funny that Sprint is calling this update “minor?” If you get this, be sure to let us know if you notice any other enhancements or fixes, or – heaven forbid – the introduction of new bugs. (It wouldn’t be the first time!)

            Thanks, that’s nice to hear. I contribute to the Solid Signal Blog and can get mentioned on the HTGuys podcast quite often so when I run into something you guys can use I’m more than happy to share. Do check out the blog and podcast.

    Installed it, but like all phone updates I’m doing a full wipe/reset first. Just to clear any gunk from before up.

    My twin brother has received the HTC One update but nothing here yet for my EVO 4G LTE. (Mid-Atlantic region)

    Does anyone know if doing a factory reset before upgrading is a good idea? I ask because I always do but with this small update I just might skip it.

    No problem, G&E. Glad to be of service.

    Hoping to see this update on my wife’s T-Mobile HTC One by mid-October. Right around Android 4.4 time, haha.

  • Got the update, htc backup keeps doing the backup. (5th time in 20 minutes). I am on wifi and have roaming guards turned off, but keep getting the error message that I have lost data due to roaming. Also it has wiped all my home screens and returned to default twice. I have already rebooted twice to see if it helps.

  • Also I have a new icon in the status bar that I don’t recognize. Looks like a broken N or 2 arrows pointing in opposite directions.

      That’s the NFC symbol. You can go into Settings and turn it off in there.

      I hope that helps. Cheers.

      Reply
    • I wondered that too. It’s to let you know that NFC is active. If you turn off NFC, the icon disappears.

  • Ralph, I don’t think updating has anything to do with the play store, it seems to be having issues of its own.

  • The Issue that the Evo 4G LTE had with contact’s sync’d Facebook profile pics as Contact Avatars appears to be back with the 4.3 update on the HTC One

    Kind of off topic but here it goes. I am rooted via HTCdevunlock (so I am still S-ON) and want to install a new 4.3 ROM. Can I simply flash the a new 4.3 Sense rooted ROM over my 4.1 CleanRom, or do I need to relock it and RUU to stock and update that way? Or what steps do I need to take to update to 4.3?

    Sorry for the off topic but I graduated college and don’t have time to follow this stuff like I used to before I worked.

    I’m getting a “4G services are unavailable as the SIM/UICC is invalid.” Never had that happen before. I’m gonna call Sprint and see what they say.

        I was told to take it in to a Sprint store so they could look at it first hand. I reset the phone a few times, and it seemed to correct itself, but a plethora of other issues are starting to rear their collective ugly heads, such as my phone constantly attempting to switch from Wifi to 4G to 3G and back again just arbitrarily; the slow charger notification; and I’ve had overheating issues constantly since I got this, my second One. I’ll get back once I talk to the powers that be.

    I did the update and since then my battery seems to be dying really fast. I just turned NFC off I think that might have been causing it. My HTC One always says SIM not available. I was told it was because there is no 4G in Ohio. Also I always get this (I think Sprint message) that is an add from xxxblondie something and I alwasy disable it when I see it then I have to reset my phone because I will no longer be able to access the play store. It just says no connection error retry. It really sucks sometimes. I’ve reset this phone like 5 times and I’ve had it since May. Sometimes I regret gettting this one. Maybe I would have been better to go to the S4 or iPhone.

  • Just updated and the first thing I noticed was the NFC icon. Quickly turned that off. An awesome thing I noticed was the new symbol when you have the notification window pulled down. Brings up all of the settings shortcuts and also has a screenshot button so you can take a screenshot without having to do the power+homebutton combo. My apps all updated with no problem so, so far so good on my end!!

    • I also want to mention that the HTC one is fairly new to me so if that was already there and I just now realized it, please excuse my post :)

      I STILL THINK IT’S AWESOME!

  • Just updated mine. The new screenshot is pretty nice in that it gives you the preview right after and the ability to share it. I also LOVE the new “Settings” button from the top drop down.

    Waiting forever for that spacing problem to fix in the emails. Really glad that was fixed. Overall, new update is minor but still great.

    Looks like a few new aps were added onto though. Bloatware I’m guessing, so I’ll have to go through those and see if any of them are worth saving.

    I got the update last night. The only thing I’m not too keen on is that in my texts, the contact icon doesn’t always show up. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t.

  • i think i’ll wait for the dust to settle to see if it’s worth downloading…you know how it is when it first comes out and all the problems crop up…my HTC ONE is working just fine and love it so far

  • after update, went to charge my phone and it now says “slow charge, use HTC One charger for faster charge”. I am using a HTC-One charger. Notification icon in upper left hand corner to show this.

    You can now include Instagram on the blinkfeed, as well as “Kid Mode” & “Gallery”. Kid Mode is also an odd option when you hold the power button.

    By the way, did anyone notice the Daydream option in the “Display, gestures & buttons” category or am I late?

    So I have had my (red) Sprint HTC One for about 3 days, and it has issues, similar to the above (and maybe other threads) so this is mostly for the “yea I have them too, it’s not just your phone” post. It is stock (not rooted) and I upgraded immediately when I got it, to 4.3. Right after that upgrade, I decided to do a factory reset on the phone for the “just in case…start fresh” factor. Hard to tell if I had these issues before as I didn’t use it very long before I upgraded to 4.3. They are as follows:

    1. Notification that there is available WiFi where I am (when I am not already on WiFi), even though I have all the settings of notification (or checking for that matter) checked OFF.
    2. Missing profile pictures for people in the HTC stock text messaging app. This is intermittent, not sure what triggers it, but if I delete the text app from multitasking and then reopen, that often brings the pictures back.
    3. WiFi and Mobile Data signal intermittently failing and/or not getting very good throughput. It was better on my Evo4GLTE…that’s unacceptable. And no, for the WiFi it’s NOT my router or ISP.
    4. Keyboard intermittently switching back to the stock HTC keyboard, even though I chose everything to use Swiftkey. I have had to re-choose this often, and sometimes it remembers, other times not so much. And then even more annoying and strange, when the HTC keyboard does come up (even though I had previously chosen Swiftkey as the default keyboard), the HTC keyboard starts in voice mode…not even sure why it would or could do that since I’m not pressing the voice key, and there is no setting to make it do so or not.
    5. MASSIVE battery drain. I have checked what is syncing, and it’s not much and not often enough for this amount of drain. I know there is the “new user” battery drain, this is not it I can assure you. All the normal things are working as usual, I check and double-check all the apps I have, most of them are only on manual or infrequent syncing (if at all), PLUS I did not have any problems on my old phone (Evo4GLTE) with any apps draining the battery quickly or with any of the settings which are almost identical on my “One”. In fact the battery on my old phone (stock, unrooted) would last me 16-20 hours on a moderate/heavy use day. This new “One” should be better, but in fact if I let this phone go without charging and only very little use (few texts, few mins on internet etc) it would probably last 3-4 hours at best. THAT is a very big issue.

    Please let us all know if there are any bonafide solutions to any of these. I don’t want “turn off all mobile data or any syncing” because you know…we shouldn’t have to. That’s not a solution, that’s a band aid or a crutch, and I won’t do it. And I don’t need “battery saving ideas” because I’ve used Android for about 4 years now, and I’m doing all the battery saving I care to (unless there is some brand new and unobtrusive thing that would help that doesn’t turn off all services or severely decrease functionality).

    Any help will be MUCHLY appreciated. Thanks.
