BLU to roll out new update to fix 'permanently locked devices' issue caused by previous one
BLU recently pushed out an update to its Life One X2 smartphones that effectively resulted in units getting bricked. Specifically, the update process asked for a password to unlock/login, but users said the password they entered was being rejected.
Now, the Miami-based company has confirmed that they have fixed the issue.
