I don't have developer options after updating anymore. They replaced it with the cloud print.

Never mind. Found a way to reactivate it. For some reason, it's not just there as it was before kit Kat.

You have to go into about, software info, more, and then tap build number seven times.

kenjag1,



Thanks for the post. When did you get KITKAT? Im hearing other customers saying they are still waiting. Was this OTA or did you have to look it up in settings update?

I looked it up in settings, system updates, then HTC software update, check now. There doesn't seem to be any bugs that I have found. Keeping fingers crossed! There is also a HTC Sync Manager driver update(1.7.16.0) for those that use it. This is found by plugging your phone into your computer and going to the HTC Sync Manager (Must have downloaded first) then it will ask you to update.

Try going to Settings, Mobile Data, Automatic Connections, and then un-check the box. Turn WiFi off then on again. See if this works.

Still nothing .... I see it scanning and making attempts to connect but fails to do so.
