HTC TP 2007 Daylight Savings Patch

I picked up this wonderful device Saturday and noticed this Sunday morning that it had adjusted for daylight savings (DST). It appears that the TP is missing the Microsoft DST update for Windows Mobile (KB949168) and, therefore, is not aware of the new 2007 DST standard where DST ends the first Sunday of November instead of the last Sunday of October which happens to be Sunday today. After installing the patch I manually changed the time back to 1:59AM and it correctly rolled over to 2:00AM without adjusting for the old DST standard.

*** Note ***
Unless you bought your TP and had it powered on prior to 2am Sunday 10/26/2008 you won't notice the old DST taking affect due to the missing 2007 DST patch.

Re: HTC TP 2007 Daylight Savings Patch

Good to know, and good catch.

I've just had issues with DST in general since I'm in Arizona. Tapping on the clock always brings me to the date and time settings and changes the timezone to -7 MST, when I really am in -7 AZ (no DST), so it winds up being that every time I want to change my alarm times, I have to also change the timezone back to AZ, and re-sync the time from the cellular network, otherwise it is effectively an hour behind.

Re: HTC TP 2007 Daylight Savings Patch

I hard reset mine and the clock ended up at the wrong time, so thanks for the post. While I'm here, how do I tell the phone my local area code? Since the hard reset, it lost my local info...

Re: HTC TP 2007 Daylight Savings Patch

My Titan I would set it for MST -7 Arizona and it would automatically not change for DST.
This version does not and like you said every time it synchronizes it shifts it up one hour.

This very well could be a user issue but it seems almost like its a ROM issue. Not a big deal just a little annoying.

Re: HTC TP 2007 Daylight Savings Patch

I would think that with WM 6.1 the patch would be included.... but here is the link on HTC's website as well.... http://www.htc.com/us/supportcontent.aspx?id=12064

Saddly none of those patches make it work for Arizona

I have to manually change it from Pacific to Mountain this is the whole point of them having an Arizona selection is because we do not observe DST. Not a big deal or anything but it worked on all my other WM phones?
