HTC and T-Mobile have finally released the GDR2 OS and firmware update for the 8X Windows Phone. The information, posted on T-Mobile’s support forum, confirms the new OS as 10327 and Baseband 3030.0.33501.531. The update can be installed over-the-air, so long as the recipient is on Wi-Fi at the time due to the file size.
Windows Phone Central originally reported a planned rollout of GDR2 back in July and although HTC did have their support page up for that OS change, the update never materialized. Some users had complained that the 8X became more unstable after GDR2 and perhaps T-Mobile decided to do further testing before rolling it out to their customers.
Users can tap into their Settings > Phone Update to check to see if the update is available. The update will bring the following improvements:
- Camera Improvements
- Data Sense
- Improved user experience
That’s in addition to the rest of the GDR2 changes, which are minor. The update itself is 217 MB and users will need at least 50% battery to initialize the update process.
