HTC released a brand new Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OTA Update for their HTC One Developer Edition device. This will add some tweaks that will improve and add more stability for your smartphone. The update has been released yesterday, but there is no official log file detailing all the changes.
The new firmware build is 1.29.1540.17 and it has the ‘System Enhancement’ tag line which means that you won’t any new major features or functions. Not all HTC One users have received the OTA Update Notifications, which is why you should check the System Updates menu. It measures only 17.55MB in size, which means that you download and install it with the mobile data enabled, too.
Rooted devices might not receive the OTA Update notifications, but you can still check for any new updates via System Settings menu. However, if your device is rooted, then you might experience some problems with the update. That’s why it would be best for you to restore your device to stock Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and only after that you should flash the new files.
Since the new Jelly Bean 1.29.1540.17 firmware update was released for the unlocked HTC One model, it means that it shouldn’t take long before the carrier-branded variants of HTC One will receive the same update. At the moment, there is no official word on the availability of this ‘system enhancement’ release for the standard HTC One model despite the fact that several users have told us that they’ve seen the update being pushed for T-Mobile HTC One.
Did you receive the official OTA Update for your phone? If you did, then you should tell us in comments if you can sense any improvements and if the HTC One runs better than before.
This should be the last Android 4.1.2 -based OTA Update available for the HTC One, as HTC should still be ready to launch the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean build soon.
