    Hey guys,

    As my title suggests, I just got my HTC 8X update OTA on Rogers Canada's network today. I don't know what is going on and what is really new, so I was hoping maybe someone out there would know? Here's a screen shot of my info.

    It would be much appreciated if anyone could give me feedback :P so far I notice no changes after not so long period of use, but I also notice its different from what Daniel was talking about awhile back in December about 20003 update (I believe it was .421 or something?) so yeah... That's about it though.

    Got the update here as well - not sure what has changed either!

    This is another update after the Skype one though, which I got a few weeks ago.

    This happens everytime after a firmware update. The first time you change your phone volume, the pop up appears too.

    Just received a windows phone update on my HTC 8x. I downloaded and installed it, but what's new?

    My OS version is 8.0.10211.204, I read online that's portico, but all the features listed I already had before (ie, reply to calls with text) so I must've had portico before.

    Soooo... A little confused here, what was the update for?

    I'm in Canada with rogers

    Messaging improvements. A great messaging experience is now even better. You can now add multiple recipients at the same time when you send a text message and automatically save unsent text messages as drafts. You can even edit received text messages before you forward them.

    - Text replies to incoming calls. Cant take a call? Now you can send a prewritten text reply to a caller directly from the call answer screen. Its a nice way to let people know that youre not ignoring them.


    - Internet Explorer improvements. You can now change your settings to prevent pictures from downloading automaticallyan easy way to help keep data usage low. You can also delete selected sites from your browsing history and leave the rest intact.


    - Wi-Fi connectivity. Got a favorite Wi-Fi network? Windows Phone 8 will now prioritize Wi-Fi connections based on your connection history.

    Looks like the Portico update perhaps?

    The one I had was a firmware update, which as now gone up to 1532.20.20004.206. Portico was a system update which as you say is 8.0.10211.204

    I think what is causing some confusion with people who are posting is that updates can come at different times for different carriers, for example, I got Portico a few weeks ago now, but others are only just receiving it. So it's quite possible we are talking about several different updates at once!

    For those of you who are interested, it looks like Bell Canada may finally be pushing out updates for the 8x. My phone was purchased unlocked on eBay from a Canadian retailer. I thought it was unbranded (no 'Bell' logo when booting up), but in the 'About Phone' section there is something about contacting bell.ca for support so I guess it's tide to Bell after all. Anyways, I'm with Koodo since they have the best rates. Only problem is I'm having problems receiving MMS sent from others that are not on Koodo network. Hopefully when Koodo gets a Windows Phone 8 the HTC network settings app will resolve any issues. I've got the APN settings entered but something is still not right. Anyways, just got update today Firmware: 20004 OS: 10211 .... anybody else on Bell also finally get this update?

    Dont mean to state the obvious but has anyone been in contact with HTC about the update?

    Im on O2 UK but with an unbranded 8X - my firmware is now at 1532.20.20005.401

    Have asked HTC and HTC_UK on twitter for any news.

    Hi,

    I've got about 1 week ago in Sweden on my unbranded 8x HTC update: 1532.20.20005.401. I don't know what you found new, but what I discovered is that my relatively stable phone became absolutely unstable all of a sudden. It freezes and quite often, seems like whole OS stuck and restart after couple of minutes. I tried to to hard reset it - doesn't help. It manage to stuck even during initial setups ! Do you guys have same problem ? Do you know if there is any way to rollback update like in WP7 times ?

    Thanks !
