T-Mobile sends out an update for the HTC One (M7); no, it is not Android 5.0
T-Mobile has an update for its customers sporting the HTC One (M7). The update will bring the software version to 6.10.531.10. Don't expect this to be the Android 5.0 update; that won't be coming until February. Instead, this update is being sent out to fix a call audio issue on the phone. T-Mobile subscribers with the HTC One (M7) will be receiving notification of the OTA update from now through January 30th.

The update weighs in at 201MB, and before you start to download and install it, you need to make sure that your battery is charged up to at least 50%. Additionally, you won't be able to install the update unless you are connected to a Wi-Fi network.

Instead of waiting until the end of January, you can always try to coax the update out of your phone by going to Settings > About > Software Update > Check for Updates > OK.  You can also sync the HTC One (M7) to your PC, and follow the directions at the HTC website.

Some recent T-Mobile updates have been breaking root and locking bootloaders. So if your M7 is rooted, be careful accepting this update.

I could had sworn that HTC bootloader was easily unlocked with a Dev account, causing it to be well open until you relocked it again . maybe you mean at&t?

This is a known calling issue on tmobile devices. Basically what is happening, is the phone will receive one ring, but no audio will come through or it will just end the call. At times clearing the phone data in the app manager, worked, however was not 100% by anymeans. This lead to lots of warranty exchanges and when the update came, there were lots of emails and warranty exchange cancels because of the update fix. So no this is not about locking a bootloader. This is an update to fix a issue that basically makes the phone worthless for calls. Edit: Best part was.....it was identified as a google now update issue that basically bricked the software for audio
