    the results definitely seems positive . no brick phones reported ....
    I hope battery life is more stable to, I got surprised by a flat phone a few times on the 1st GDR2!
    Used 50% in a day which is normal for me, see what happens tomorrow.

    Hope ur update comes soon, being able to use my phone without worry of bricks is nice!

    The latest update installed here.

    No Brick, but battery life is rubbish now on this phone. Died prematurely yesterday while using Runkeeper (uses GPS) and taking some photographs and video, battery was NOT flat but phone turned itself off without any notice, push power button nothing, hold power button for 10secs phone came back to life, thank god.

    I have a feeling this GDR update fiasco is not over yet, and our phones will never perform as good as they used to battery wise.

    Will monitor the situation and see what happens.

    Not impressed with this though, feels like I have a second rate phone now, next purchase Nokia - Never touching HTC again, support is non existent

    Well the good news was I could switch the phone back on after holding power button for 10secs

    Probably what the update was for, allows us to switch phone back on!! :D Same issues will monitor things.

    Requesting a callback from a manger from HTC will keep you updated.

    Requesting a callback from a manger from HTC, UK Support say there is no problem with GDR2 and 8X phones......priceless.

    Even linked them to this thread.

    If you go back to one of my earlier posts, you'll see that shortly after the latest update, the battery life was atrocious, for like a day. It went from 80% to 20 in a matter of hours, with moderate use.
    Now, and I **** you not, it's better than ever.

    Right now it's been off charge for 15 hours and is at 60%. And that's after listening to music constantly at the gym for about an hour and a half, browsing 6sec for half an hour. Watching various Youtube vids, reading the Guardian and Weave for a grand total of an hour. Not to mention about half an hour of call time and absent-mindedly fiddling with the phone.
    I'm impressed. See if the problems persists after a day or two, and then you'll know to start worrying.

    Hi Milky,
    Was the wifi on even in sleep? 15 hours and 60% is very impressive. Right now on my pre GDR2 I'm getting draining at from 3% to 5% per hour with wifi always on. I've only have whatsapp, battery, bing news and finance running on the background.

    "There were reports over recent months about the GDR2 update bricking some users' HTC 8X phones once it was installed. I tried to track down information about this from HTC. An HTC spokesperson told me earlier this month that they were not able to replicate this despite reports and that user reports in forums didn't specify carrier names, so they were unable to check on it. I can (happily) report my phone is fine after downloading GDR2."

    More Windows Phone GDR2 updates are rolling out | ZDNet
    Hmmm..... did they really fix the bricking bug?

    Yep, WiFi always on. GPS on, 3G on, Bluetooth off, NFC off, Light theme, Medium brightness.

    AccuWeather, AppDeals, Battery, EnGadget, HTC, myTube, Timer, Weave and WPCentral allowed to run in background.
    Not as impressive today though; 12 hours off charge and @ 45% right now. Draining at 4%ph.

    Oh No.. now that Microsoft has bought Nokia Devices, will HTC still update the 8x or just show the finger to Microsoft and WP?
    I still haven't got GDR2 yet.

    that's seriously a Thread for us ... Hope Htc will atleast Fix this Music Hub Bug if not update typically ... Finger Crossed !!!

    P.s - While this is one side of story, others are saying Htc trying to convert its flagship phone HTC one to Windows ... is this True, Any idea ???

    Yup, it looks like what I feared has come true. HTC has shown the finger at Microkia. Looks like ALL HTC 8x probably won't see any more updates including gdr3.
    HTC deserves to die with this kind of screw customer attitude.

    Even though a few us haven't even received the GDR2 fix I really hope the 8x will receive the GDR3 update. I just read some of the cool things it might be bringing to the WP OS.

    - Disable screen rotation
    - Driving mode (block incoming calls and texts during driving
    - Bluetooth update
    - Close open apps from the multitask screen (when holding the back button)
    - Backup and restore function

    Pinocchio is becoming a real boy :-)
