If you have an update make sure to follow the format that's been established, and the following guidelines: Keep devices in alphabetical order listing the manufacturer and model Specify if the date is confirmed or rumored and link to the source If there is an unofficial ...

While that RAM restriction applies to several low-end devices (which came with less than 512 MB RAM), it is not really the main reason for missing updates. And looking into the custom-rom scene proves that many devices abandoned by their manufacturers (not too seldom for this reason) are in fact supporting newer versions. So when talking about "official ...

I'm afraid not. These bundled apps are part of the ROM image, so the app updates are part of the system update. When you install an update, it just copies the data wholesale into the phone's system partition: it doesn't install apps one by one. For this reason, there's no way to filter out individual apps from the update. You can't even remove those files ...

Official OTA's from HTC could only be installed if you posses the stock recovery. You can download the right one for you from XDA here. When you have downloaded it you can just flash it by typing this (with your phone connected in fastboot mode): fastboot flash recovery path/to/recovery.img Disclaimer: Probably the update won't work if you have a custom ...

Manufacturer OTAs can only be flashed using the recovery that came with your device, which is (more often than not) 3e recovery. I would recommend that you find a stock recovery.img, fastboot flash recovery recovery.img, then apply the OTA.

It sounds like your bootloader is locked, which is different from rooting. With a locked bootloader, you can only flash official signed factory images; with it unlocked, you can flash anything to any partition. If you're following Google's directions for installing factory images, you'll see that one of the steps is to run a fastboot oem unlock command. ...

Pretty normal. With Android 4.4, Google decided apps shall no longer have write access on the external SDCard – unless they are system apps (or have root privileges). They call that "security" (while others call it "crippling", and doubt "security" being the real reason behind – rather suspecting "cloudy interests"). While apps still can store their own ...

You are not getting update most probably because the new version of OS is not yet released for your REGION. If really want to update(not official) you can install custom ROMS. But at the end of day I would prefer you retain your present OS if its not posing problems.

To the best of my knowledge you have to wait until your carrier pushes the update. Unless you are on a Google Play edition or Nexus device, your carrier reviews the updated software from the manufacturer and adds what it deems to be necessary additions, applications, etc.

As Ross already stated in his comment, the inability to move apps to SDCard has nothing to do with Android ICS (though several manufacturers claim exactly that, it's simply not true: AOSP1 supports this since 2.2-froyo and at least up to 4.3-jelly-bean. Only with the "security change" of completely disabling free write access to SDCards with 4.4-kitkat, this ...
