KitKat 4.4 update pulled for UK HTC One handsets
It would seem that HTC has not quite done enough beta testing for its latest KitKat update on the HTC One flagship phone, as the company has pulled the latest Android 4.4 KitKat update in the UK.
The update has already been rolling out to the HTC One devices since February 24th, but HTC has now announced that some users were “experiencing difficulties” following the KitKat 4.4 update and so the update has been stopped temporarily.
With the announcement of the update being pulled HTC stated that “”We are aware that a limited number of HTC users are experiencing difficulties with the KitKat update. As a result, all FOTA updates have been temporarily suspended. HTC is committed to providing customers with the best possible mobile experience and we are working hard to resolve the issue quickly.”

Reports suggest that some user’s issues lie with rapid battery drain after the update, but it is unclear whether this is the full extent of the problem or whether another cause has resulted in the pull.
HTC will undoubtedly get the update fixed ASAP as we are all currently awaiting the next in line for the HTC One handsets, the handset codenamed the ‘HTC One M8’, which has shown up in multiple leaks over the last few weeks.
The incoming HTC One (Two/M8/New HTC One) will undoubtedly come packing the latest Android 4.4 update as standard, so the original HTC One will hopefully have its version by the time the newer handset is released.
If you have updated your UK HTC One to the new 4.4 update then let us know if you have been experiencing any issues.
