AT&T HTC One X OTA now headed out to users, brings new option for old menu button

It appears an upgrade is headed out to AT&T’s version of the HTC One X. The update no doubt includes the usual bug fixes, security updates, and general enhancements, but one change many of you will like is a new option for accessing the legacy menu button for apps which do not yet implement the action bar’s menu button.

The option would allow users to long-press the multi-tasking button to access those legacy menus instead of having a grotesque black bar taking up prime real estate. Check under your settings menu for the upgrade. Some aren’t seeing it just yet but we’ve seen enough reports to suggest this thing is real. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

    Does it renable the removed Sound Equalizer? That’s BS that they removed it at all.

  • Yasser

    Should have been the opposite(normal press=menu & long press=multi task menu)

    • Khang Tran

      cool thing is with that update, it really does give you that option =)

      But then the button wouldn’t make sense

    • Yasser

      Well,on my s2(which was stolen :/) I remember that menu button was used a lot more than multi task button(long press home button) so it’s better to use menu key faster than multi task but it’s still a nice update to the one x.

    HTC should follow Android standards with on-screen buttons. They wouldn’t confuse their customers.
