Not long ago, the folks at HTC revealed that the Android 4.2.2 for HTC One X will soon be rolled out for the US carriers, also confirming what most of us feared: that Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is the end of the road for the company’s 2012 flagship and that it will never get updated to Android 4.4 KitKat.
Even though it was delayed a few times until now, the Android 4.2.2 update is finally rolling out for the AT&T variant of HTC One X. Better late then never. The update arrives after AT&T has approved the OTA roll out, a few days after HTC announced that the HTC One X Android 4.2.2 update is pending confirmation from US carriers.
As usual, HTC chose Twitter to give the good news to their customers. This time HTC’s executive director of product management in the US was the one who broken the news by tweeting that the Android 4.2.2 update for AT&T HTC One X has received Technical Approval and that the roll out is expected to begin January 29th.
Besides upgrading your OS to Android 4.2.2, the HTC One X update that will roll out in the next few days is also set to bring HTC Sense 5.0, NFC fixes, and AT&T Address Book Fixes. The list of changes could be longer, but we can’t know for sure what Android 4.2.2 will bring on your AT&T HTC One X until the carrier posts the official change log.
Anyway, we will definitely be dealing with a staged roll out, which means that not all AT&T HTC One X users will be able to download and install Android 4.2.2 on their terminals right away. Starting tomorrow, expect a system update message to pop up in your notification area. All you will need to do is click on it, download the update file and wait until it’s installed on your device. You will also be able to check for the update manually, under Settings > About phone > System Update > Check for updates.
