HTC One Android KitKat upgrade UK rollout halted

The HTC One Android KitKat update rollout in the UK has been halted due to user difficulties.

HTC has decided to pull the Android 4.4 KitKat update for its flagship HTC One for the time being, while it resolves the difficulties users are having with Google’s latest mobile OS.

Users have been complaining of poor battery life following the KitKat update, but HTC hasn’t explained the extent of the unspecified issues and whether the problems go beyond the battery life.

“We are aware that a limited number of HTC users are experiencing difficulties with the KitKat update”, reads the official HTC statement. “As a result, all FOTA updates have been temporarily suspended. HTC is committed to providing customers with the best possible mobile experience and we are working hard to resolve the issue quickly.”

The temporary suspension comes just a week after the initial KitKat update rollout for the UK.

HTC America managed to push out a very quick KitKat update rollout, but unfortunately the British version seems to be having some problems.

It wasn’t even part of the first wave of European countries to get access to the latest Google mobile OS.

There’s no information as to when the KitKat rollout will begin again in the UK, especially as the HTC UK updates status page has relisted the update as being in the “integration” stage.
