All of these M7 updates naturally lead many to wonder about the status of the M7′s larger sibling, the HTC One Max. But other than a Sense 6 update for the Sprint variant released at the beginning of this month, carrier variants of the One Max have taken somewhat of a back seat to the M7. But now, the Sense 6 update has finally arrived on the Verizon variant of the HTC One Max (despite not yet showing up on HTC’s Software Updates page), and it brings all the goodies that we have seen on other recent Sense 6 updates for last generation HTC devices.
The update, which actually started making its rounds yesterday afternoon, comes in at software version 3.08.605.1. But before we get too excited, this particular update lacks a few of the goodies that we’ve grown accustomed to seeing in Sense 6 updates for other HTC devices. Most notably, this build does not bring the new Extreme Power Saving mode or HTC Backup. However, it still brings the device up to Sense 6, which is a step in the right direction.
If you’re rocking a Verizon HTC One Max and wish to update to Sense 6, head over to the links above to download either the sideloadable OTA or the repackaged RUU (for S-Off users). Alternatively, Flyhalf205 is currently cooking up a custom ROM based on this OTA that will incorporate all of the features missing in this OTA.
