HTC One X, one of the best Android smartphones with the giant specs, is finally receiving updates to the Android Jelly Bean OS from the Ice Cream Sandwich version which it was shipped with. The update is being sent over the air to the customers in Asia, South America and Europe, and the users who have been receiving the update are reporting that it is the unlocked phones (CID_038 & CID_044) which are getting the updates.
The Android 4.1 version update is coming along with changes in the HTC Sense 4+ interface, and this update actually is coming in two different parts – the first one being a 1-2MB small file which initially downloads and stars the download process of the main update which is 357-364 MB in size. You need to check for the update whether it is available, and the same can be done through the settings.
There should be an OTA update notification available in your HTC One X device, and if you don’t see anything already, then you would need to manually check for it by going to Settings > About > Software updates > Check now. The updates would be sent in the coming weeks for the given countries, but in the US, the AT&T customers would have to wait because the phone in that region is based on HTC One XL, which is a device based on the dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, while what is available in the international version of the One X has a quad-core Tegra 3 processor.
The only requirement as of now is that the phone has to be an unlocked one, so you are a lucky one to receive an update soon if your One X is unlocked. There is no confirmation whether the One X with a carrier lock would be receiving the Jelly Bean update or not, and whether the update with the Sense interface update will have the Google Now, Project Butter, the offline text-to-speech features included in it.
