    I'm on a Hong Kong unlocked HTC 8x. No GDR2 update available only Portico. Thank God! :-)

    Hi , I bought 8X with GDR2 update and everything works perfectly, I listened to music one and a half hour and nothing happened, no random reboots. wp_20130807.png sorry for that language, I am from Slovakia and it is unbranded.

    I don't dare to use XBox Music, and now my phone has more and more lags. This GDR2 isn't a joke, it's a BAD joke :-(

    My 8x got bricked last week while using Xbox Music. Waited four days for it to run out of battery. Now it's back on but I don't want to play my music anymore. Bought an Android phone but can't stand using it. Using Android is like poison. Hoping for an update for HTC 8x for bug fixes. My 920 is in Nokia Care... Tsk.

    Still no update here, on T-Mobile as well. Waiting patiently. I hope it won't be delayed for ever such as how 7.8 was, you had to force the update or you would NEVER get the update no matter how long you wait.

    Advice on installing this GDR2 update for 8x

    **********DO NOT! DO NOT! NOT INSTALL!! - I REPEAT DO NOT INSTALL UNLESS YOU WANT TO BRICK YOUR HANDSET***********

    I suspect the new radio app is the culprit coupled with XBox Music (Sub cancelled)

    It bricked my Virgin Mobile HTC 8X (Dont say we didnt warn you)

    despite all these warnings I see pop up, I am pretty sure I am still going to install the update.

    Call me stubborn, but I just can't not do it.

    Mine didn't wake up after days so I send it to repair and the clerk there told me to pay 180 eu becaus it is not under warrenty because the screen is a bit cracked (just on the top of the screen a little bit, worked flawlessly for me though) with an excuse that he can't fix it if he doesn't change the screen, what a **** -_- gonna call HTC customer support today and try them to exchange it for me or something, really not pleased with this update fiasco.

    HTC today regarding the update and they have advised me it is still being pushed out and works on serial number and how old the handset is basis, so older serial will get it first :)

    So I guess we won't be seeing gdr3 or wp8.1 all because you said to not update. Not going to happen, I'm updating even if it breaks my phone, right now it only seems to affect unlocked devices.

    Actually it hasn't permantly bricked the handset because that has magically revived itself after being dead for 24hrs..........

    Just don't listen to any music!!!

    If you don't listen to music on your phone then you *should* be fine - and hopefully by the time you update MS would have sorted out the issue with the update.....

    My phone has now magically revived itself after being dead for 24hrs......please see the other threads regarding this.

    I am only talking about this GDR2 update, you would hope Microsoft would sort out this mess before GDR3 wouldn't you?

    partly it seems like its on HTCs side to fix the problem, not Microsoft. It is after all affecting only their 8x devices.

    If my device does somehow break, I'm sure that T-Mobile will just give me a new phone that they state they will replace with their protection plans even with accidental damage.

    You always have an opportunity to restore the original firmware in case of bricking after the GDR2 update!

    How is this achieved then? How do I uninstall GDR2? tia

    Afaik once you update the device and have rebooted it a few times and used it for a couple of weeks, there is nowhere that gives you the option to revert back to the previous firmware, unless you know something I don't Svetoslav :)

    great if its up to HTC then it will never get fixed, with their zero input approach into supporting WP phones once they are released.....guy at HTC I spoke to yesterday basically blamed Microsoft as it was there update, I did explain surely Microsoft techs liase with HTC techs to test these updates incase of bugs and he didn't really have much to say on the matter, tbh though he is just a guy answering the helpline, the majority of forum users here are more technical.

    He was a nice dutch guy, extremely polite but information wise totally useless tbh.

    Well it's decision time; I've received the notification that an update is available.

    I think I'm going to do it. If it works it works and I can go on with life. The phone is working fine as it is, but I wouldn't mind having an FM radio; it would be handy for listening to ballgames at work (where streaming is disabled over the company net). If it doesn't work and the phone bricks, I have a warranty with Best Buy; I bet they'll exchange it for a Nokia if I ask. I still have my old flip phone, so even if they want me to send my 8X in for repair, I can get that turned back on and at least have phone service while it's in limbo.

    I will sally forth fearlessly.

    you must have the at&t version. Sadly T Mobile still hasn't released the update yet. I wish they would hurry up, there isn't much or any difference at all between the at&t and T Mobile 8x except probably preinstalled apps.
