Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean Update for Telus HTC One X Now Available

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for Telus HTC One X

Mobile Syrup informs that Telus is now rolling out the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for HTC One X. The Canada-based technology blog also has a screen shot to confirm the update.

HTC One X was one of the world’s first quad-core smartphones, and the former flagship smartphone of the Taiwan-based phone maker has already hit many of the big North American carries.

So far, Rogers Wireless has been the only Canadian carrier that rolled out the official Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for HTC One X, but this is not the case anymore.

The update brings Telus HTC One X’s firmware to version 3.17.661.2 and it was released Over-the-Air. Since the firmware is 629MB we’d advise you to have you smartphone connected to a WiFi hotspot in case you don’t want your data plan to be seriously hurt.

If you didn’t receive the software update notification yet, you can check for the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update manually by heading to Menu > Settings > About phone> System software updates > Check now. As soon as the firmware update package is downloaded, your HTC One X will reboot, then all the apps installed on your device will be optimized for the new software.

Besides all the treats that come with Android Jelly Bean, like Google Now, Project Butter, bug fixes, improved stability and battery life, the firmware update for Telus HTC One X will also bring the revised Sense 4+ UI, the company’s proprietary user interface.

I remind you that HTC One X packs a 4.7-inch Super IPS LCD2 with HD resolution, dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage and an 8 megapixel primary camera with full HD video recording capabilities.

If you are on Telus and you own an HTC One X, you should go ahead and check for the firmware update. Would you please let us know if it hit your device yet?

    Not too impressed. It used to be simple to choose to use my HTC as a USB drive or just charge it – no longer possible. You now have to run HTC Sync Manager or nothing! Has anyone found a way to simplify things again?

      Based on past experience with ‘latest, greatest’ updates (update broke wifi AND bluetooth on my HTC Status) I will not be doing this update for at least a month. Especially after reading your comment. I never use HTC Sync.
      Check “Settings….Connect to PC…. Default Connection Type”. you may be able to set the default connection type to “Disk Drive”. I know its there on the stock firmware. You’ll have to tell us if the option is still there in the updated firmware. It would be a bit of a pain in thew butt to have to preselect the connection type before plugging it in, but better than using HTC Sync.

      Not too impressed either. I tried downloading it 4 times. Each time it completes and then it verifies the download and then it says the download is corrupt. Doesn’t offer an option to install it other than OTA.

    Wiped gmail calendar events (not that I’ve figured out how to sync gmail calendar between HTC one X, Google nexus 7, and pc-based gmail yet), stopped receiving gmail on phone, and stopped syncing Evernote (I can edit notes on tablet and immediately see changes on Evernote on husband’s iPhone, but my HTC is in the dark). Thoroughly unimpressed.

    I’ve upgraded yesterday and so far its working seamlessly. No issues etall. Liked the new version of music player n chrome is looking so much better. Plus contrary to other comments that I saw here I didn’t face any sync issues.
