Vodafone Australia skipping GDR2 update for the HTC 8X, waiting for GDR3

Vodafone Australia has released some details surrounding the mysterious GDR2 Windows Phone software update for the HTC 8X, which has been in the news recently. It turns out the manufacturer is skipping the operating system update from Microsoft. This is due to HTC 8X customers getting in touch with some issues since updating their smartphones. 

That's the bad news. The good news is Vodafone and HTC will be aiming for GDR3 once it's released.

"HTC have advised they won’t be releasing this update as they’re focusing on the release of GDR3. Timings for this update will be announced soon."

The above is published on the update section of the Vodafone AU website. So not all hope is lost, folks - especially if you're with other networks.
