    I may have figured out a way to flash back to 8.0 for the people on dev preview. If somebody could just find or gt a copy of an htc 8xt 8.0 rom than I can know for sure and and let everyone know. I emailed htc and asked for a copy of the rom. Hopefully the will be nice and give me a copy.

    I asked for the same thing when DP was newer, they recommended I RMA the phone to them.

    Yaaaaaarg! Finished Updating! This was the "21 step" update. After rebooting and scanning the SD card for errors I found my app "folders" were removed and the loaded apps returned as separate tiles on my home page. (no worries ..'an easy fix later) I didn't check the version on the about page at first, but checked back to the Phone Update page to see if there were any other updates available (just in case...) and THERE WERE! More juicy morsels? The cog wheels are rolling again...(back in a few)

    This confirms the DP and the Sprint 8.1 Update. I will be checking to see if the WiFi Issue has been "fixed". This was my MAJOR issue! My wife's Non DP phone updated last week to 8.1. Her OS version is 8.10.14203.306

    Phone has been off the charger for awhile now. No reboots and Wi-Fi is still going strong.

    ok that is good, i may try enabling the dev preview than if it is not going to stop future over the air updates. HTc emailed me back and said the rom could be downloaded through htcdev.com, but they only have android roms there. I emailed them back saying that and asking for it again. I would like to get it in case of future need.

    Me three! Downloading now....wow I can't wait to tell the world in another hour or so I can in a stable manner connect to a wifi network with my smartphone! Hey guys we hung in there, lost hope, but in the end the update has come even for us select few on DP. I'll report back when the update fully completes and will be looking out for your replies as well. It makes me puke in my mouth having to hear that ********* make me feel like an a-hole for participating in the DP program when all along the update was coming to us and his suggestion didn't work. Happy Saturday night from the US East Coast!

    I'm doing a hard reset, removing the SD card and will attempt it again...I'm glad everyone is seeing it tonight, regardless of my troubles.

    I agree, and I did try that first.

    Threw another error, quite frankly, I'm impressed it rebooted...

    I'm back up, but it doesn't find the update now, and errors when trying to restore a backup.

    I think mine is messed up now... I'll try again tomorrow.

    finally got the update after enabling the developer program again. everything seems to be running smooth now.

    looks like my panic was for nothing. unfortunately, i did a hard reset and lost all my app data and a few apps that are no longer published.

    Yep, I couldn't find the update again either... reinstalled the DP, enabled it, and the update is found again... weird, that is not how that's supposed to work.

    I also lost some apps, 5 Night's at Freddys 1/2 for starters.

    On the plus side, it seems to have removed the work requirement for a alphanumeric passcode on ny phone and now accepts a 4 digit pin.

    4 times the charm? Let's see...

    (In the meantime, my HTC One is an ok substitute.)

    Just got the radio firmware update! Had to re-enable dev preview first. Now its downloading more, so I assume this is just the rest of the preview updates that were mentioned in the beginning.wp_ss_20141221_0001-1-.png

    I made it. Whew.

    Didn't really do anything different...just kept trying, finally made it through. I have the updated Radio Software OS version...glad to have Wi-FI back!

    (I also had to have DP Enabled before my phone would see the update. I do wonder if MS didn't have to have the HTC release on the DP servers perhaps in order for us to see it? Just a thought...)

    Good for you man you have been well involved in our journey to get this update. Happy secure WiFi'ing. As basic as it sounds it leaves one in a ****ty position having a phone that can't handle this basic feature. Happy Holidays to you all.

    Was notified of an update earlier this afternoon, and have been enjoying Wi-Fi without any reboots for a solid few hours! It seems to have just been a slow rollout after all.

    So far so good after about 24 hours on the update. Solid Wi-Fi, no crashes.

    Can someone post the current OS and Firmware version numbers so I know I am up to date and can disable PFD for the time being?

    Okay, it sounds like Stephen, Johnathan, Dorelse, and Grizzly have all done a little different thing to get from DP to Sprint 8.1. Can one of you post the exact steps?
    12-23-2014 09:25 AM
  25. TonytheEE's Avatar
    Okay, so I remember when the Sprint 8.1 came out, I got an update on my phone, but I still had access to live folders and whatnot.
    I just did a hard reset and I'm at the same OS number as Stephen and cbmiller above, but my firmware is still at 3030.00.21501.651. You guys seems to have 3030.00.31005.651. and higher Radio software version. do I have to reinstall developer preview, like some of you are mentioning?
