AT&T HTC 8X is also now getting the Portico Windows Phone update
Nokia isn’t the only one getting Portico today (OS build 10211) as it looks like AT&T and crew have thrown the switch for their HTC 8X, which was noticeably absent when the Lumia 920 got one a few weeks ago. Rumor has it some minor bugs were found and needed to be stomped out before rolling out.
As mentioned earlier, Portico is a small OS revision but those little features go a long way for everyday use. Such additions in the update included SMS call reject, persistent Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi hotspot preference and IE enhancements. The update will address stability and reboot issues that have plagued some users. HTC also has some firmware (10009) to go along with the update to polish off some settings and device features.
Users can head to Settings –> Phone Update –> Check for Update to manually fetch the over-the-air OS upgrade (Wi-Fi only, we believe due to the size). Installation can take upwards of 20 minutes and if it “hangs” on 100% installation before the reboot, no worries as that is normal.
Sound off in comments on your progress. Thanks, rekkid, for the tip!
