How to Update HTC One X, One X+ to Android 4.2.2
To update, you won’t need to download anything or transfer it from the computer as this is an OTA (Over-the-air) update sent by the company itself, so you would need to go to Settings > About > Software Update and there you need to click on “Check Now” so that the device checks for any available updates, where the Android 4.2.2 update would be available, and you can update the device from there. It’s advised to take a backup of the data before you proceed with the update. This process of manually searching for the update is only for those who don’t automatically get the update on their home screen.
