Hotfixes available for HTC Touch Pro 2 and Pure – auto-update for Windows Mobile NEARLY worked for once

wmupdate The Update icon in Windows Mobile has always been a bit of a joke, but it seems there is some grumblings of it actually working for once.

With HTC’s recent release of updates for the AT&T HTC Tilt2 and HTC Pure, FuzeMobility reports that updates were in fact detected by the Windows Update utility on Windows Mobile, but when he attempted to use it it unfortunately failed to download the hotfixes.

Well since the Pure has a hotfix available I figured I’d see if it could be picked up from the phone so I went to Settings – System – AT&T Software Updates and shockingly it found an update. Then I tried to install it and seemingly nothing happened and then I got a text that it failed to work.I repeated a few times, soft reset, toggled the proxy…same result each time. …  Of course, this is still a far cry from the phone telling me that there’s an update available without the user needing to do anything…and of course it didn’t actually install any updated. But hey, it’s baby steps, right?

Since we have to get the hotfix the usual way, read about them below:

Hotfix: Inconsistent Caller ID function on the HTC PURE/Tilt 2. | 12.17.2009
