    Verizon is holding many updates from us. For example we are a few versions down from the newest android version. We don't even have sense 5, whereas HTC one does. Our last update was minor bug fixes, I think, in april. Updates should be coming in, at the most, every 3 months

    I read somewhere that HTC wants 4.3 on the DNA. How long that'll take, nobody knows. Verizon never really gives a time frame and sends out updates after "extensive testing".

    Latest word is that they are skipping 4.2 and going to 4.3. HTC will release sometime in September, but Verizon testing could hold it back quite a bit longer than that.

    Droid DNA should see Android 4.2 and Sense 5 by the end of September.

    Verizon’s Droid DNA, its version of the HTC Butterfly, is still without Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Sense 5 despite the update being available for the HTC Butterfly in Asia and elsewhere. Fortunately, it’s for good reason.

    Like the HTC One, the Droid DNA will skip Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and head right to Android 4.3 with Sense 5 on board. And like the HTC One, HTC plans to get this update to customers by the end of September.

    HTC and Verizon have not issued a specific date for the updat

    Do you think it's possibly at all, if AT&T puts out the ota first, that (since the dna is sim unlocked) you could put the AT&T sim card in (if you're on another carrier that doesn't have it yet) and take the ota then Pop back in per say Verizon sim card?

    Well, I'm on Verizon and I've already flashed the HTC one port of sense 5 to the dna. But I was just thinking. So that should work because Verizon is ALWAYS last.

    According to Jason Mackenzie, HTC’s president of global sales, the HTC One and DROID DNA will receive Android 4.3 before the end of September. We have recently seen the international HTC One receive Android 4.2.2, but Mackenzie also confirmed this weekend that the U.S. version will likely skip right to 4.3 since 4.2.2 was so minor.

    I wouldn’t say we are surprised at all by this, as HTC seems to be attempting to update phones as fast as possible these days, but it was nice to see the DNA name-dropped in there. Launched at the end of last year as HTC’s flagship for Verizon, we feel as if it gets neglected from time to time.

    Does Verizon really give a damn about the DNA?

    I know, I was reading another post from Android and me that said HTC one received its update already, but it was only for rooted devices that's why I reposted that last post!
