    Anyone else notice that the HTC tile works now on non-DP phones? My wifes 8XT (officially updated tonight), her HTC tile is keeping the correct time.

    No updates to the 8.1 DP 8XT's at the house...which makes sense I suppose? They're at a higher release 8.1.1 than the official update. I would think they'd be at a lower firmware version though.

    Your phone blue screened on you? Wow! I've heard that Windows Phone 8 was based on the same kernel from the desktop version. But goodness, they even included in blue screens?

    Well I hope you're able to install this successfully.
    Yes exact same blue screen as a windows 8 pc. After I restarted it updated fine. Just took close to an hour to finish.

    Just compared my DP 8XT's version numbers in the About -> More Info section to the officially updated phone. Only the Radio Software version number is different. (Obviously the DP 8XT is 8.1.1 now, its the OS version is higher).

    The 8XT, updated today by HTC officially, is 0.40.50.0918, DP Updated 8XT is 0.40.50.0830.

    There's our WiFi patch I'm assuming...firmware versions are the same.

    So excited about this update! I was bummed as heck just yesterday when I tried looking for the new Minecraft PE release and I didn't have 8.1 :(

    Currently at the cogs, might go work on other stuff so I'm not sitting here staring at it.

    While you're in there, could you please post the OS and other version numbers? Screenshot is fine too. Thanks!

    So how do you suppose we go about getting the firmware? I checked for updates today and several more came through but they were all related to DP. No firmware update available.

    Did the preview program screw this process? Are we never going to receive the updated firmware because we have a "newer" version of the OS?

    Same here on latest possible dev preview and haven't received the update yet. I hope we haven't waited this long and it doesn't work for those of us that upgraded to dev preview.

    I just tried what someone else tried which is to turn off dev preview, remove the app, and restart but to no avail. I guess we will wait it out a little longer. What a bummer!

    I spoke to an HTC tech support mgr today, they did just feel that we'll see it eventually as it rolls out in waves...I'm doubtful of that though...

    i'm a bit confused by the whole "released in waves" thing. does that mean it's location based as to when you receive the update?

    the fact that quite a few developer preview users are reporting in that they haven't received it is making me nervous. i wouldn't doubt HTC's ability to screw this up.

    They told me its divided up by S/N's of the phones. They used the example S/N's ending in 'ABC' are first, 'DEF' 2nd, etc, etc.

    I'm really suspect its messed up and DP users aren't getting it...I'm hopeful that we'll be able to get our new MS reps to get HTC to take a look at their rollout criteria...I suspect we're being excluded somehow...(not intentionally, mind you...)

    So if they aren't pushing the firmware update to DP users then my Wi-Fi is essentially borked for good.

    I think we just need HTC to understand what's going on...I haven't reached out to anyone this weekend, but I'm hoping to find someone to contact. Anyone try tweeting Joe B. yet? Maybe Daniel, or the new MS employees can help us...

    I haven't. I sent Sam Sabri a PM asking if they had a way into HTC's walls to get them to understand that the HTC upgrade servers aren't recognizing that we need the update (at least the firmware portion) to fix our phones as well.

    Honestly, if they pass us over, I'll be taking the $1/mo lease for an iPhone 6 from Sprint along with my other 2 8XT's as well. I'm really tired of swimming upstream...

    Has anyone gotten it?

    I tried this morning and still nothing yet. I'm really thinking we're $hit out of luck. Even if it got sporadically rolled out, by now we would have received it and I would think at least one of us would have reported in. This just sucks. We waited all that time for this bull. All I frickin' want is my wifi issue fixed, is it that much to ask????

    I would be satisfied if I could just downgrade my phone to Windows Phone 8.0 I'm on HTC 8X but we are all in same hands.

    I haven't heard anything back from Sam. I'm not sure if we all need to start tweeting @HTCUSA (nicely) to get them to fully understand that we're not getting the update or what. Sprint says that the update comes from HTC's servers, not theirs, so it'd be HTC looking at why we're not getting it.

    I updated today!....I'm in LA and my last name ends with a "G" if that's how they're deciding how to roll it out.

    It took about an hour and I had to delete some apps to clear room for the 860MB of space I needed on the phone to upgrade. The biggest change, by far, is the ability to put apps on the memory card. That is huge and a game changer for this phone! Haven't thoroughly played with Cortana yet but I know she'll wait, and wants me. Looks like lots of new stuff to play with so I'm happy.

    Edit: FYI I updated from 8.0. No DP for me.
