When will I get Android 5.1 on the HTC One M8?

HTC UK tweeted in response to a customer question and confirmed that the Android 5.1 update for the HTC One M8 will arrive in August alongside Sense 7. As usual, you will have the option of waiting for the over-the-air (OTA) update or manually checking from your device's settings. You can also download the ROM from the HTC site in your country and flash it yourself.

HTC One M8 GPE Android update

True to form, Mo Versi announced the latest HTC update via Twitter in early April, stating that the HTC One M8 Google Play Edition will be receiving Android 5.1 Lollipop OTA "shortly". No further details were revealed, but Versi replied to a follow-up comment regarding the HTC One M9 to confirm that this too would be getting Android 5.1 at some point. 

T-Mobile HTC One M8 Android update

The T-Mobile HTC One M8 Android 5.0 Lollipop update began rolling out in early February, so should now be on most devices. To see if the update is ready for your device, head to Settings > About Phone > Software update. 

Sprint HTC One M8 Android update

On February 6, the official Sprint support page was refreshed and Sprint now lists Android 5.0 as the current version of the HTC One M8. The update should be available on all Sprint One M8s by now. Go to Settings > About Phone > Software update if you haven't got it yet.

Verizon HTC One M8 Android update

Verizon HTC One M8 owners got the Lollipop update in early March.

AT&T HTC One M8 Android update

AT&T finally joined the Lollipop party by updating the AT&T HTC One M8 to Android 5.02 in early April.

The HTC One M8 Android M update is not yet available. Android M is expected to launch globally in Q3, 2015. We will let you know when we learn more.

For those who have Lollipop up and running on their HTC One M8, what are your thoughts so far?

    Like to know plz how long it takes to fix error 38 on the sd card phone memory bug with Google play its been almost 5 months since I reported this problem to HTC and Google play and still no fix so the phone I bought so I could use a sd card for my movies is worthless it's shocking that the only answer is Google play will work on other devices what happens if you dont have a spare device just laying around I know this I'll never buy a HTC phone again I'll stick with iPhone's from now on seems they fix problems In days NOT 5months and still waiting it's a joke

    Can I go back to Android 4.4.4 KitKat on the HTC One M8 after I updated to 5.0.1 Lollipop?

  • Murph 5 months ago Link to comment

    So this has basically shut my phone down. Horrible text lag, constant update requests. Verizon phone. Any updates on new updates or temp fixes?

    I am also having issues with the update, why did it take so long if none of the bugs were fixed?
    My phone's home button and recent apps button sometimes disappears and i have to restart to get them back.

    Not quite accurate! Nvidia Shield is already on 5.0.1 and I think 5.0.2 may have rolled out today.

    My M8 refuses to connect to my LG TV via miracast since the update. Anyone know if this is a known issue?

    • DBS 6 months ago Link to comment

      I'm having the exact same issue. My M7 running KitKat connects just fine

  • Stephen Grant 6 months ago Link to comment

    My unlocked M8 is very, very laggy since the update - the device is actually pathetic compared to performance under Kit kit. Very disappointing.

    Anyone else unable to use face recognition unlock after the 5.0.1 update?
