If you thought that your Three UK branded HTC One S will no longer receive the official Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean OS (as we all know that HTC released the OTA update for the unlocked and international devices back in December last year) I now bring something to cheer you up. The carrier just announced that the Jelly Bean firmware has been launched and the OTA software will soon embrace the One S smartphones.
Anyway, don’t get too enthusiastic though because we all know what happens with the stock updates. Usually it takes a while for the OTA update to be made available for all the users, so you should be patience as who knows when the Android 4.1.1 firmware will be coming to your HTC One S (it is a matter of days not more, so don’t panic either).
The upgrade is bringing all the Jelly Bean 4.1.1 features to your One S along with the latest Sense UI, the Sense 4+. Furthermore, the firmware has a size of 600 MB, so it is recommended to download and apply the same via WiFi.
Now, if you have already updated your phone to a custom ROM software, or if you have rooted your device, then we will shortly bring a guide that can be used for manually installing the official Android 4.1.1 OS on your One S, so don’t worry the stock Jelly Bean flavor will embrace you too.
Remember that the Three UK OTA update for the HTC One S is already available, so on your phone go to “Settings -> About ->Software Updates” and check if the ROM is there or not. If you have flashed the Jelly Bean OS on your smartphone do tell us how you find the new software and if there are bugs or issues in the system.
