Own an HTC One X? Have you been waiting for months to get Jelly Bean running on your handset? The long wait is finally over. According to owners in the UK and across Europe, they are starting to receive the Android 4.1 update for their smartphones.
According to Android and Me, owners of the unlocked version of the HTC One X in South America, Europe, and Asia have received the Jelly Bean update.
Version 4.1 is a more updated version of Google’s highly popular operating system. It comes with new features such as Google Now, which delivers information relevant to you even before the thought crosses your mind.
Android 4.1, however, is not the latest version. The latest is version 4.2, which runs on devices such as the Nexus 7 (Google’s cheap 7-inch tablet manufactured by ASUS), the Nexus 10 (a 10-inch iPad-rival made by Samsung), and the Nexus 4 (a 4.7-inch smartphone manufactured by LG).
According to One X owners, the update comes in two parts. The first part is a smaller update (1.25MB to 1.6MB). The second part is a bigger update (357MB to 364MB). Included in the update is support for Sense 4+ (an updated version of HTC’s custom UI).
Unfortunately, it seems only the SIM-free or unlocked versions of the handset are getting the Jelly Bean update. If your One X is tied down to a contract, expect to wait longer for the update to roll out. Updates are subject to networks testing for compatibility with their bloatware before their customers can enjoy the latest version of Android running on their phones.
If you want to know if the update is available for your smartphone, go to ‘Settings’, then hit ‘About’, then go to ‘Software Updates’, then finally hit ‘Check Now’.
