Verizon OTA Update for HTC Thunderbolt Being Unleashed

December 16, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It is a well known fact that the HTC Thunderbolt was the first smartphone that was launched onto Verizon’s 4G LTE Network. Since its induction, we have seen plenty of new generation phones coming into the pool.

Verizon is now showing some added concern to the Thunderbolt owners by launching an Over the Air software update for their devices.

The new update will promote the software on Thunderbolt to 2.11.605.9 version, form already existing 2.11.605.5 that arrived in October. Along with the version, a number of additional features like bug fixes, system improvements, and a new radio ROM for better network connectivity are provided.

The update will revise the device’s efforts to resolve issues with contact ringtone, bringing improvements to notification volume, update local streaming of playback even when the network connection is lost.

The software update will modernize app and widget features. To mention a few, it will update the Twitter API for Peep/FriendStream, clock app would be included in app list, and bring improvement to Exchange ActiveSync.

There isn’t any word about the date of release, but the update is expected to hold a size of 36 MB. The update notification will appear automatically, but can be manually search and download by those who can’t wait the lag. For this, go to Settings> Software Updates> Check new.

However, this update will not upgrade the HTC Thunderbolt to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Don’t hesitate to tell us as and when you get to play with the new updated device.
