    I never did hard reset my 8x but had to delete some games. Over 9gbs of "other storage" (yes I tried shrink storage and other methods). Update went successful.

    Yeah so I guess my sim card is stuck since I used tape lol. Oh well.

    they should be forced to provide change logs. I bet if i called HTC they would have no idea what was updated.

    Well as you can see, the 2/20/13/update (which was Portico) had 389 components. So this was about a quarter the size of that update. But there does seem to be quite a few things tweaked across the board. Maybe one of our s/w experts at the forum here can figure out more precisely as to what the packages/components relate.

    Update: At least for Verizon users, you are evidently getting this update too and it fixes three items (thanks, aceoforder):
    Fixes the "SIM CARD NOT DETECTED" error
    Fixes an issue with Skype calls not having audio
    A battery-drain bug that can occur when a user enables Internet Sharing and then turns it off

    Same update received international version of this phone.
    After analyzing I found that update contains only files from HTC and Qualcomm.
    Can't say much about Qualcomm updates, but for HTC I can see that these drivers\services have been updated:
    - Low Space service - could it help with other storage now?
    - Sensors
    - Battery provision
    - ACPI
    - Bluetooth
    - NFC
    - Touch panel driver (from Synaptics)
    - Headset
    and a few other things which is hard to understand by its name. For example "weathervideo",

    Hey! My clock is always on in the upper right corner, now. Was this always like that?
    Also, the ring sounds different, and seems to go back to 21/30 when I wake the phone up.
    Still no "other" fix, though.

    Any occasional OS stuttering still?
    What kind of stuttering does the OS suffers? Is it too occasional, too annoying?


    I was thinking between buying HTC 8x and HTC One, and HTC 8X is much cheaper.

    A few Verizon 8X's (mine included) started stuttering - just little annoying pauses when you try to do something - randomly a month or so ago. After this update the problem has disappeared completely for me - smooth as butter like always.

    Again, I don't think it was a widespread problem and seems to be fixed now.

    Sadly this update did not fix the Bluetooth compatibility issues with my car. I'm still unable to stream music over Bluetooth. The first song plays but is unable to play the second song. I have to hit fast forward or the play button to get another song to play. I'm still having problems with the phone functions as well. Was hoping this update would fix this. I could do a factory reset but don't know if that is worth it.

    yes but do remember, portico was a software update from Microsoft as well as a hardware update from HTC and Verizon. From the looks of it, the update covered basically everything hardware related

    I got this update on Saturday. I was having intermittent issues with 3 areas of phone operations. 1) SIM card detection errors. 2) The "End" button on calls has a lag, and 3) occassional random reboots. I have not noticed any more problems with the SIM card detection since the update. The lag on ending calls seems to persist. Not sure yet about the random reboots.

    I was having quite a lot of SIM card errors and random shutdowns. I did the update last week and it didn't seem to fix anything. I'm still having these problems. I'vbe had to restart the phone twice this morning alone with a SIM card error. And I just found out it was off again. This is really annoying. Anyone else?
