It’s been less than a week since HTC started the rollout of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update for One X in India, and now the company is deploying the upgrade worldwide.
According to HTCSource, there have been many reports from HTC One X owners across the globe claiming the Jelly Bean update is now live and available for download.
For the time being, it’s been confirmed the update is pushed through OTA (over the air) in India, Argentina, Russia, Dominican Republic, Peru, Brazil, Sri Lanka and the UK.
HTCSource also says the update has hit CID_038 and CID_044 devices. In order to check out the CID of your HTC One X, you’ll need to install a third-party application via Google Play store. Simply search for CID and choose the highest ranked app that shows up.
HTC One X owners that have yet to be notified on the update can manually check for it by going to Settings / About phone / Software updates / Check now.
It appears that HTC is pushing a small minor update prior to the large Jelly Bean file, so those who will see a 1.6MB file available for download, they should install it immediately if they want to be able to upgrade to Android 4.1.
We’re no yet sure exactly when carrier-bounded HTC One X units will receive this update as well, but rumor has it that AT&T will be among the first operators to offer it. Stay tuned for more updates on this one.
Aside from bringing the phone’s software to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, the update brings the new HTC Sense 4+ user interface.
The camera UI has been enhanced to offer better performance and there’s a new landing page and Event/Map view in Gallery. HTC also included some power management improvements as well.
