HTC One rocks

Those of you with rooted HTC Ones have no doubt been running leaked builds of Android 4.2.2 with Sense 5 for weeks now. For everyone else, we have some good news. It looks like HTC has officially flipped the switch and is now pushing out the update to unlocked HTC Ones, starting in Taiwan.

At around 465MB, build 2.24.709.1 brings a handful of new enhancements and additions. You can see from the changelog posted the update prompt, users can now look forward to:

  • Android 4.2.2

  • Widget panel rearrangement
  • New Lock screen style widget
  • Enhanced Home button behavior
  • Home button options added to make navigation menu bar removable
  • Show battery level in status bar
  • Quick settings panel: 12 default settings by new touch gesture
  • AE/AF lock feature: Lock Exposure/Focus on viewfinder screen

As well as:

  • Improved BlinkFeed
  • Stock HTC %battery
  • Stock HTC EQS
  • Long press home button works as menu
  • Possibility to remove all icons from the dock
  • Icons doesn’t disappear from the app drawer even if added to the dock

You can expect rooted ROMs to flood XDA’s HTC One development section in the coming hours/days. No word on when we’ll see this on other devices. At the moment, it looks like this is Asia-only for now. We’ll keep you posted.

    Can’t wait till it gets here in the US! I was so hoping they would include something that would allow you to remove the facebook, flickr, and picasa displays from the gallery…it’s a small thing but boy does it bug the crap out of me…more so than Blinkfeed…and I don’t like Blinkfeed either.

    Okay I can’t take it anymore it’s time to take the plunge and root , been all set up on my desktop for a week…………………here goes nothing the new base is already available in a ROM
    called InsertCoin- by baadnewz….in the international HTC ONE XDA. Forums ………….

      U will not regret it, your One will be running as it should have out-the-box

  • Nick Thai

    Too bad, it’s the LAST update

    • DavidVarghese

      I doubt that. It’s a flagship, and if the HTC One X will be receiving the update (which it will), then the HTC One will be guaranteed for 4.3/4.4 (or 5.0).

      Either way, I know I’ll be up-to-date thanks to the BAMFs over at XDA.
