    Is the update officially out yet for carrier free phones? And if so in which countries? I bought mine in Germany.

    Going by HTC's site, it looks like only Verizon and Sprint (with the 8XT) will be receiving the update. Both are still in stage 3 - certification.
    That sucks!!!!

    Verizon has left the 8X out in the cold. Verizon conveniently failed to mention anything about the 8X in today's announcements.

    Okay, I just got the following Tweet from Verizon:



    I just tried updating my phone, but it still tells me I have the latest version installed. Moreover, the HTC site still says it's in stage 3 - certification. I'm waiting to hear back from Verizon about this.

    I was tired of waiting and I installed the developer version. It has been working perfectly fine for 1 month already.

    My 8x has all the developers updates on it and I have been suffering with random reboots for several months. I factory reset it even, reupdated, and reinstalled everything but it didn't help. 40% of the time I pick it up and unlock it and it is either off or it starts to unlocked and reboots. I may have to switch phones.

    Well, on 15th January they wrote: HTC 8X (Spark) Windows Phone 8.1 (GDR1) Testing complete, awaiting rollout.
    I guess good news for you.. I am from Croatia and I have no idea what's going on with updates here..

    STARTING? They have pissed me off for the last 8 months. I've about had it with Verizon and Microsoft. If Microsoft can't force Verizon to update the phones we were promised would continue to get updates, I need a new carrier and phone. And now they are talking about Windows 10 update, and I am still on 8.0.

    I didn't get truely pissed about it until I heard about 10. It was just a minor nuiscance for me as I've been focusing on my warframe with my warframe clan (until that god awful liset update that made the game borderline unplayable for me) then I got back into console gaming for awhile then back intro fallout new vegas and then I hear about win 10 and i am furious

    The Windows 10 Preview for Phones will be released before Verizon releases the 8.1 8x update.

    So, I just contacted HTC and they verified that the HTC 8X is NOT getting the Windows 8.1 update...ever! While it was in Stage 3 of development, it apparently failed and they don't plan to move forward. Sad news. It will be a new Lumina phone for me...now I just need to decide which one.

    Does the HTC 8X have even Windows Phone 8.1 (forget update 1) anywhere? I mean without running the Developer Preview.

    For your information las night I got the WP8.1 Update.
    Finally last night I got the update for the international unlocked version. This is what happened: It first updated three "updates" in a row in order to be able to update to Windows 8.1 (about 45min); after these updates you have to search for update in the apropiate configuration box. It then shows the Windows 8.1 update. After agreeing the terms and continue it starts downloading (via WIFI) and installs (this proccess takes around 1 to 1 1/2 hour). It is worth the waiting. I am replacing my Lenovo Android phone (which is also a good phone) back to HTC 8x as my main phone.
