As reported on the XDA Developer forums, various HTC One X users around the globe are claiming to have started receiving the Android 4.1 update.
Back in October we reported that HTC had begun rolling out a software update that would bring the HTC One X’s core operating system up to Android 4.1, also known as Jelly Bean. This initial roll-out only seemed to hit parts of Asia at the time – specifically Taiwan and Singapore.
Now, however, the Jelly Bean update is spreading across the globe. A report on HTCsource claims that unlocked handsets in India, Argentina, Russia, Dominican Republic, Peru, Brazil, Sri Lanka – and yes, the UK too – have started receiving the new OS.
If you haven’t received notification of the update on your HTC One X yet, go into Settings > About > Software updates > Check now. That should give the HTC servers a nudge.
As we’ve mentioned, though, only unlocked handsets appear to be receiving the update at this point. We checked on our Vodafone-issued HTC One X and there was no sign of the update. This is, unfortunately, typical of Android updates, where operators like to test the files themselves to make sure they work well with their own custom software tweaks before allowing the updates out to their customers.
For those that do manage to initiate the update, be warned that it’s a pretty hefty file. After an initial 1.6MB installation file you’ll be faced with the main deal – a whopping 364.54MB download.
