    Will (& WHEN) will HTC release security patch(es) for the "Quadrooter" security threat! Our M8s apparently are not getting the next android version, but [hopefully] HTC will see fit to continue to provide security patches for active HTC handsets!

    Anyone have information about this?

    I had an online chat with an HTC "Support?" representative who said that the patch for 'Quadroote' comes from Google.

    Cool that Smitty! Meanwhile don't sideload. We'll get it in September latest. Probably.
