HTC Droid DNA Gets Its First Software Update, But Don’t Expect Android 4.2


Verizon has announced that the HTC Droid DNA will soon be getting its first software update, but it isn’t the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean upgrade you’ve been hoping for. It will deliver a slew of important bug fixes, however, improving sound quality and Wi-Fi connectivity, and allowing users to finally load videos in Hulu Plus.

The update will come with build number 2.04.605.2, which is based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Here is the entire list of improvements it makes, according to Verizon:

  • Users can load videos in Hulu Plus
  • Improvements to HotSpot connectivity
  • Improvements to audio quality for wired headsets and earpieces
  • Improvements to Bluetooth connectivity and volume levels
  • Enhanced reliability and stability of Contacts List
  • Improvements to Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Improvements to default browser’s zooming capability
  • Incoming messages show correct timestamp
  • Improvements to Recent Apps functionality

While this may not be a major Android upgrade, then, there are plenty of improvements and fixes that are sure to make a big difference for Droid DNA users, as you can see.

Verizon hasn’t announced when the update will arrive specifically, but you should see it soon. It will come over-the-air, and you’ll receive a notification on your device when it’s ready to download. The file is over 100MB in size, according to Android Community, so you’ll want to make sure you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network before you hit update.
