The unlocked version of HTC Windows Phone 8X already joined the list of devices that received the GDR2 update few weeks back. But it appears as the update is making its ways to various carriers as well. AT&T announced on their support forums that the carrier started rolling out the GDR2 update for HTC Windows Phone 8X. The update is sized at 207MB and can be downloaded over WiFi only. Once updated, the GDR2 update will change the OS version to 8.0.10327.77.
The update brings support for LTE bands 2 and 5, and the much awaited FM Radio support to Windows Phone 8X devices but you need to connect your headset before you can turn on FM Radio. Windows Phone 8 GDR2 update also brings Google CardDav and CallDav support along with Additional enhancements to Bluetooth, music, and battery performance.
If you are an AT&T user using Windows Phone 8X, you should get a update notification by now. You shouldn’t be worried if it’s not reached you as the rollout process is gradual and may take some time to reach all devices. If you want, you can manually check for the update by navigating to Settings > Phone Update and then tap on Check for updates. If it’s available, just follow the onscreen instructions to update your device. It is also recommended to create a backup of your device before you update it.
