The Android Jellybean update has been rolled out to a number of prominent smartphone models over the last few weeks. However, the HTC One S and HTC One X have seen the software update provided in certain areas only. Just recently, the update went global, allowing users in all major markets to download the new software version.
If you own the HTC One X, you should have received a notification that the new version of the software is ready to be downloaded and installed. If not, you can check manually by going to the settings menu, and then selecting software updates, then check now.
If the phone says there is an update available, simply follow the instructions on screen. It is highly recommended that the phone is connected to a Wi-Fi network before you commence the download otherwise it could make a considerable dent in your data allowance as the update is around 365MB.
When you have downloaded the software onto your phone, you will notice that the interface is much faster as a result of ‘project butter’, which makes more efficient use of the phone’s ample processing power. The update also brings new features like Google Now and a few changes to the on screen Qwerty keyboard and design of menus. It also makes the face unlock feature more accurate than with Ice Cream Sandwich.
Although the newer Android v4.2 Jellybean update has been released, the new update to v4.1 should bring plenty of new features to keep HTC One X owners happy until details regarding the next update are released.
The HTC One X+ is the Taiwanese manufacturer’s upgraded version of the One X, and comes with Android 4.1 Jellybean straight out of the box so there is no need to update the device if you own the One X+.
