The long awaited update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the HTC One S has finally started rolling out late yesterday evening. As far as we know, the update doesn’t yet include T-Mobile’s One S in the US, but most European markets should be covered. As is usually the case, devices bought unlocked and SIM-free will probably have priority in receiving the update, whereas those customized by carriers will need their approval in order to roll out.
The update comes in at a whopping 612 MB, and you can only download it via Wi-Fi. After applying it, you’ll be running software version 3.16.401.8, and Android 4.1.1. So Jelly Bean alright, but not the latest version of it unfortunately (that would be 4.2.1 at the moment).
The update brings with it the usual bits and pieces found in the 4.1 branch of Android, as well as an enhanced UI and better performance for the Camera app, a new landing page and Event / Map view in Gallery, and better power management.
So there you have it. If your One S hasn’t yet notified you that an update is available, you can always force it to manually check by using the option found in Settings > About phone. If you’re impatient, that is.
