HTC One X Jelly Bean update begins on Three, AT&T waits


There are a number of Android handsets that are seemingly taking ages to see newer versions of the operating system, and this is hardware that was once flagship devices only a few months ago. This certainly can be said of the HTC One X that is now being updated to the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean software on UK carrier Three, but US customers of AT&T still wait.

The Jelly Bean OS first started to arrive on the handset back in November of last year, and more recently customers of O2 were treated to the new firmware. Now UK carrier Three has taken to Twitter to reveal the availability of Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update.

The update is being pushed out via an over the air update and as with all Android updates will be released in a staggered fashion, so if your handset hasn’t been hit with the notification yet don’t worry too much.

You can check for it manually via the main settings option of the handset and then selecting About phone, before choosing software updates and check now. The update is reportedly 360MB in size so you will be wise to achieve the download via a stable Wi-Fi connection, and also make sure your battery has plenty of charge left as well as backing up all your personal data.

The carrier has also provided a support page for users needing some guidance with the process, and this follows news earlier that customers will have access to unlimited LTE data at no extra cost. Three are certainly feeling in the charitable mood recently to try and tempt consumers to the network, as they recently offered a nice set of free headphones for customers pre-ordering the Sony Xperia Z.

Now customers of US carrier AT&T will see yet another major carrier update the HTC One X to Android Jelly Bean, which although in another country but still frustrating. Has your HTC One X received its Jelly Beans yet?

    I own HTC One X through AT&T. I would LIKE the official JB rom, but I got tired of waiting and re-unlocked and re-rooted. I’m running the Viper JB Rom…don’t know if I’ll do official now or not.

    THIS is the very reason my next phone will be the Nexus 5. Off-Contract and unlocked.

    tired of HTC and their broken promises. My other phone HTC Droid Incredible 2, should have had ICS update last August and STILL Waiting. HTC have now started not responding to customers who ask about it. All they have said in recent months was “were working on it”. Ugh

      Don’t think it is HTC that is holding up the update. Seeing as how almost all the other One X variations have the JB update I would point fingers at ATT.

    HTC but out the update months ago. This is all ATT. They have to embed their crap/bloatware all over the device and make sure that it works (well, their version of works) and also make sure you can’t disable/remove it.

    I was at an AT&T store yesterday 2/5/13 and the sales rep was fixing my HTC One X as I had a Warranty replacement. He told me that an HTC rep had been to their store earlier in the day and said that the Jelly Bean update is starting today 2/7/13 for US users. We’ll see….
