Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 update now rolling out to the HTC One
As recently reported, Google’s latest iteration of Android is now rolling out steadily to HTC’s flagship smartphone, the HTC One.
The Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 update has been spotted on HTC One phones in areas of Northern Europe, with numerous users confirming the arrival of the new software.
So far we’ve spotted reports from HTC One owners in Russia, Denmark, Georgia, Norway, Sweden, Romania, Serbia, UK and Finland, all claiming to be running Google’s shiny new OS on their phones.
We’ve been frantically checking on our SIM-free HTC One here in the UK but as yet we’ve unfortunately not gotten our hands on that new Jelly Bean flavour. However, users over at XDA-Developers have enjoyed success in updating their SIM-free UK models, so it seems that the update is rolling out in small batches at the moment.
HTC’s variation of the 4.2.2 update will bring some of Google’s features including lock screen widgets, as well as improvements of their own which come tied to the Sense 5 interface. These include the removal of the black menu bar, new quick settings, improved file management and more.
Once it has arrived, the update can be downloaded over the air, although we recommend ensuring you’re connected to Wi-Fi before getting started – you’ll eat up a big chunk of your mobile data allowance otherwise! To check for the update manually, follow the steps below;
Open Settings > Tap About > Tap Software updates > Tap Check now
If you’re lucky and your phone finds the update, tap Download and follow the on screen steps to upgrade your software. If not, keep trying!
