    Same issue as above. I'm on DP, and I've tried checking for updates with both the preview enabled and disabled, and no matter what it shows as updated.

    I have a Verizon HTC 8X with DP. I did a soft reset on the phone, and I check for updates but I'm not getting one. Any advice?
    Current info:
    OS ver 8.10.14219.341
    Firmware 3030.0.41301.605
    radio software: 0.17.50.0918_3
    radio hardware: 2.126.3 D4

    Thanks,

    Brian
    On DP here too with DP enabled and no update yet. Might be a rolling type of update and it could take awhile before all phones get the update.

    I believe the only advantage to getting the Verizon update for those folks that are on DP is the clock fix for the HTC hub app.

    HTC 2/12/2015 update page:
    Windows Phone 8X by HTC (Verizon Wireless) - News & download - Support | HTC United States

    Basically this page lists the steps in the update process for GDR2 for Verizon. For new features go to the Verizon link at the bottom link....and click thru to the 'Benefits of Software Upgrade' PDF.
    Also note the firmware needs to be at v. 3030.0.52009.605 before it will update to 8.1
    So in my case I was at 3030.0.42201.605 before and went thru the update to the 52009....(including migrating data). This 52009 firmware update auto/offered and installed to me....then it allowed the update to 8.1 which still ongoing, migrating data again...

    I have been on the Preview for Developers program and I received the OTA update this afternoon. No hitches or glitches.

    Out of curiosity, did anyone notice a change in the notification center from PD to HTC/Verizon update? I thought we had 5 buttons at the top instead of 4. Or am I confused with Widows 10?

    It's always been 4 unfortunately. I wish it were 5, but only large screens get that many.

    That is good news. Did it just fix the HTC hub or did it add other stuff?

    Still waiting here. Tried checking with the check box for dev preview checked and unchecked. My phone has been a buggy mess for months, hope the firmware fixes things so it'll last until there's a new flagship. Do NOT want to sign a new contract right now

    Here is what HTC has to say about the firmware 3030.0.52009.605. In the past their information has not been very accurate so it is hard to tell what really is going on.

    My Verizon HTC 8X is on the Microsoft Developer Preview 8.10.14219.341 with firmware 3030.0.41301.605. When it checks for updates it shows up to date. How do I get the new firmware 3030.0.52009.605?
    ‎9‎:‎34‎:‎42‎ ‎AM Thomas B.
    let me check on that. 2 or 3 minutes please.
    ‎9‎:‎37‎:‎32‎ ‎AM Thomas B.
    Unfortunately we don't have the ROMs for you to download. You would need to check with Microsoft to see if they have it and where to get that from.

    If your phone was on 8.10.14219.341 preview with firmware 3030.0.41301.605 then I believe the only change is getting the new firmware 3030.0.52009.605 through the update. The new firmware fixes the clock on the HTC hub tile and a few other things.

    The question I have is why it appears that some HTC 8X phones on 8.10.14219.341 developer preview with firmware 3030.0.41301.605 are not downloading the new 3030.0.52009.605 firmware through the Verizon update.

    I've talked to HTC and Verizon. They say this is a rolling update that goes out in batches, and everyone will get it but it might take a few days. Still waiting here.

    I'm a little amused, how big could these batches be? How many possible users could be left ? A few dozen? :P

    Mine isn't picking it up. I turn off PfD and on, and no update. Still on firmware version 3030.0.41301.605. I'm wondering if its because I don't have a sim card in. The 8x is my test/backup phone. Maybe ill try popping my Icon's sim in later.

    It's my main phone, so my sim card is in, still no joy. Thinking of getting a Go phone on at&t till there's a new flagship
