While most of the popular HTC handsets have already received Stagefright fix as an update, today seems to be the day for European HTC Desire 820’s to receive one such update. Tucked into the 370.95 MB update package, the version 1.29.401.5 software update for HTC Desire 820 in Europe will fix one of the most critical vulnerability found on Android.
There are some other enhancements and bug fixes included in the update too, but that’s all about it. No Android 5.1 update for Desire 820 yet, in case you were wondering.
Other devices of HTC like Sprint HTC One M8, Desire 816 and HTC One M7 has already had their Stagefright bug fixed via an update. Recently, Verizon HTC One M9 Android 5.1 update was also released, and that also fixed the Stagefright bug on the device.
To force the 1.29.401.5 update on your Desire 820, go to Settings > About device > Software update, and tap on ‘check for update’ button to force the device look for it.
