Options: There are a few options for updating your HTC One M9. You can wait for the over-the-air (OTA) update to be pushed to your device automatically, you can manually check for the update through your Settings menu (Settings > About > Software Updates > Check Now), or you can downloaded and manually install the update from your manufacturer's website or HTC itself.

You'll get the same update in all cases, it just depends on how long you want to wait to get it.

HTC One M9 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update

Canadian owners were the first to see Marshmallow arrive. Carriers Rogers, SaskTel, Videotron and Wind are all beginning to see the update roll out. 

The news means that a US rollout can't be far behind. We'll let you know as soon as we hear more.

HTC One M9 Android 5.1.1 update

No major carriers have updated the HTC One M9 to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and it seems very unlikely that they will now with Marshmallow planned for the device.

However, you can get CyanogenMod 12.1 for your device, which is based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. The ROM is currently issuing nightly builds, which are experimental versions of an as-yet-unfinished piece of software. Plenty of bugs are to be expected, so don't download and flash the ROM unless you are comfortable with unstable software.

You can download CyanogenMod 12.1 for the HTC One M9 here.

T-Mobile HTC One M9 Android update

The T-Mobile pushed out the HTC One M9 Android 5.1 Lollipop update recently, bringing devices up to software number 2.7.531.6.

The update introduced, among other things, Anti-Theft, camera enhancements and battery improvements, though we can't confirm to what extent battery life has changed. 

The update can be downloaded manually from HTC's support page or accessed via your settings. Don't forget to check out all the details over at T-Mobile's support page.

AT&T HTC One M9 Android update

The AT&T HTC One M9 update rolled out on July 16. The Android 5.1 Lollipop update for M9 on AT&T brings new features and enhancements to the M9 camera along with some bug fixes. Check out the AT&T changelog for details. The update had been scheduled for July 15, but when a carrier comes in only a day late, we're still happy.

On April 21, AT&T announced it was pushing a patch for the AT&T HTC One M9 to address camera and heat issues along with the usual bug and performance fixes. The One M9 update brought the software up to version 1.32.502.31. If you want to take the manual update route, you can visit HTC's support page.

Sprint was the first US carrier to update the HTC One M9 to Android 5.1. The Sprint HTC One M9 Android 5.1 Lollipop update arrived on July 1. The update changleog mentioned the phrase everyone was looking for: 'temperature management optimization'.

Sprint was also first out of the gate to address the problematic HTC One M9's heat and camera problems. The Sprint HTC One M9 Android update arrived on April 11 and pushed the software to version 1.32.651.30. You can download the update from HTC's support page if you want to flash the ROM yourself, or you can manually check for software updates in your settings or just wait for the OTA to arrive.

  • Living in nanaimo Canada, got the marshmallow 6 update a few days ago, can't access files like I could in the lollipop 5.1 on the unrooted bell even with apps. Es file explorer doesn't help either so I am concerned. The Du battery saver app from the Play store helps keep the phone from overheating & extends the Battery for over 60 hours though. Still the fastest phone on the planet though & hopefully one day HTC will double the current 3 gb of ram even though the dual 8 core processor @ 1.555 is quicker then the iPhone6 my far.

      • I saw your comment related to HTC One M9. I have a Verizon branded version of this phone, but connected to the Canadian Koodo network. Do you know when V5.1 will be available for my Verizon phone, or whether I can get a developer version loaded onto my Verizon phone?

        I'm assuming you live in the States somewhere, so your response would help me.
