T-Mobile users who own the HTC One S have woken up to a software upgrade today as the US carrier is reportedly pushing out an upgrade to Android 4.0.4. There is a very long list of improvements and bug fixes to be had that no one should have qualms with. Take a look:


According to T-Mobile the update is 150MB large, and you’ll have to be on an unrooted, stock build of 1.53.531.76 710RD or 1.84.531.2 710RD to receive it. As always, you’ll want to charge your phone until it’s above 50% before you decide to accept the upgrade, and it’s always a good idea to turn WiFi on. Read on for the full update instructions.
