Among the rumors of Microsoft killing off the device and closing down Zune Originals some people were starting to think the rumors were true. Maybe this will change their minds. The Zune HD has an optional firmware update. While no specifics are known quite yet, by the the version number it is just a bug fix. Either way, it shows us (okay, maybe only me) that Microsoft has not forgotten about the Zune HD.. yet.

So plug in your device and run the update… and let us know if you find anything different. It should update from 4.5(109) to 4.5(114).

Seems it’s only a security update to fix a vulnerability found in the web browser. That’s according to the Business Developer for the Zune HD, Dave McLauglan.
