Only certain smartphones are eligible for this update
US-based carrier T-Mobile has just released a new software update for HTC One S, which brings some improvements and lots of bug fixes.The new software version 2.35.531.10 is pushed OTA (over the air) as we speak, though not all HTC One S owners will receive it at the same time.
However, it is important to mention that this update cannot be installed on HTC One S devices that are already updated to software version 2.35.531.7.
The latter update was pushed back in September, but it seems that not all HTC One S users were able to upgrade.
According to T-Mobile, “both 2.35.531.10 and 2.35.531.7 are up-to-date versions. If you have one of these two versions, you cannot update further as there would not be additional benefit.”
All in all, the current update for HTC One S will be live from December 10 through December 30, so users may want to manually check for it by heading to Settings / About phone / Software updates / Check now.
Obviously, only HTC One S devices that are on currently outdated software (1.53.531.16 or 1.84.531.2) will start receiving this update, which will upgrade the firmware to version Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The following changes are included in this update for T-Mobile HTC One S smartphones:
- Improved Wi-Fi stability;
- User interface improvements;
- Improvements to Bluetooth connectivity;
- Improvements to prevent devices from getting permanently stuck on 2G when updating.
Furthermore, several bugs and issues have been corrected as well, including the ones detailed below:
- data connection delay;
- signal fluctuations;
- Wi-Fi dropping connection or not connecting;
- Wi-Fi stays connected when out of range;
- device crashes or restarts;
- email links do not open;
- loading screens or lag when returning to home screen;
- streaming music skips.
