AT&T HTC One X+ Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update now rolling out
The update to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean for AT&T’s HTC One X+ has started rolling out, around five months after the same version was made available to the international model. This is the last new version of Android that this device will ever receive, as officially stated by HTC not long ago. The update for the One X should follow at some point – hopefully this month.
So if you own an HTC One X+ bought from AT&T, now may be the time to manually check for software updates. That is, unless your handset has already notified you that an update is available. According to some members of the XDA Developers forums, you might get a smaller update first, and then (perhaps hours or days later) the big one which actually bumps up your Android version.
The small update weighs in at around 4-5 MB, and the big one is a hefty 532.1 MB in size. So obviously you need to download it via Wi-Fi.
Aside from the goodies included by Google in the 4.2 release of Android, you’ll also receive HTC Sense 5, the company’s newer interpretation of its UI overlay compared to the Sense 4+ that the One X+ shipped with.
It’s unfortunate that HTC has decided that the One X+, which isn’t even 18 months old at this point, deserves to be forgotten from this point on. But it’s hardly surprising, now is it?
