Sprint is busy pushing out a relatively minor over-the-air stability update to all its carrier-branded variants of HTC’s former flagship smartphone, the One (M7). Sadly, this upgrade doesn’t bring any major software modifications, such as Android 4.4.4, but it does transport a fix for a rather annoying problem that many users have been complaining about for a while now.
After update software version 5.05.651.2 has been installed, users will notice that they once again have the ability to mirror both local content and cloud-stored media to a Sony Bravia Smart TV via Miracast – a feature they’d lost due to a flaw in Sprint’s version of the KitKat operating system for its variant of the One (M7).
To initiate the upgrade manually, make sure you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network. Then, from the home screen, press the Menu key, followed by Settings. Scroll to the bottom and tap ‘About Device’, then ‘Software Update’ and ‘Update Now’. Follow the prompts on the display of your device and your phone will start to download and install this 15.4 MB stability update.
