The HTC One owners on Sprint network are waiting for a software update for their smartphone desperately as they are facing some issues with the performance of the device.
The wait seems to be coming to an end very soon as Sprint is reportedly going to release the first software update for the HTC One devices.
According to a post on Sprint's community page, the software build number 1.29. 651.10 has been rolled out on May 16 and will reach to different HTC One handsets running on Sprint network in stages.
The update is supposed to fix different issues related to the HTC One smartphone.
BlinkFeed improvements, New Sprint Zone Client and Improved Back and Home key sensitivity are the enhancements listed by Sprint but users have, so far, not observed anything related to the BlinkFeed.
Many of them were of the view that the new update would come with a feature that will allow them to turn the BlinkFeed function off, but the users who have already updated their handsets to the new update, have confirmd that they are still not able to turn the BlinkFeed off.
The update is available over the air (OTA). However, it can also be flashed manually by following these simple steps.

1. From the home screen, tap All Apps
