Rogers reportedly pushing out Windows Phone Portico update for HTC 8X

No surprises here as 1PM ET rolls by reports of more Windows Phone “Portico” updates have begun to come in. This time, it’s for the lucky owners of the HTC 8X on Rogers who are reportedly now getting the combo OS and firmware update.

Rogers (along with AT&T) began pushing out the updates for the Nokia Lumia 920 on Wednesday but the 8X was left on its own. Now that looks to have been fixed as users can manually check (via Settings, Phone Update) to grab the new OS off of Microsoft’s servers.

Of course there is no love yet for AT&T users as we just checked our 8X with negative results. Still, seeing as Rogers and AT&T overlap a bit, we wouldn’t be surprised to see AT&T’s 8X get an OS bump soon as well. Yesterday, T-Mobile US began updtes for their version of the 8X after a 24 hour delay. Thanks, Sean W., and others for the tips!

Let us know in comments if you have had luck getting the update on Rogers.
