HTC has confirmed that they are unable to hit the 90 day Challenge. Mo Versi, HTC’s VP of Product Management wrote of the development in a blog post today, saying:
We’ve been working hard in the labs with Google and our carrier partners ever since the code release and are making great progress so far, but if you’ve been following the progress of this rollout you will know that Google has had to address several issues with this release. We’ve been diligently working to fix some of them on our end and incorporating Google’s fixes as quickly as possible, but despite everyone’s best efforts some carrier versions of the HTC One (M8) and HTC One (M7) will not meet our 90 day goal, which is February 1st. While we are committed to delivering within this time period, we are even more committed to ensuring these updates result in an even better experience with your device because that is what the updates are intended to do.
It seems that HTC has given a legitimate reason behind the delay. Now we expect that HTC provide the updates to the carrier locked as soon as possible.
