Jelly Bean for HTC One X begins global rollout, AT&T variant expected soon


It’s been a long time in the making, but it seems today Jelly Bean has finally begun rolling out for the international version of the HTC One X (Tegra 3 powered). According to our friends at HTC Source, the 364.54MB update has been making its way across the globe, hitting One X’s in India, Argentina, the UK, Russia, Dominican Republic, Peru, Brazil, and finally Sri Lanka. Of course, this is only the beginning and if you’re currently with international One X in your possession and haven’t received the update, expect it in the coming days.

The Android 4.1 update is said to bring a handful on improvements ranging from better camera performance, to improved battery life (always welcomed). While this means the Jelly Bean update has been fully tested on the One X hardware, keep in mind AT&T’s version is the One XL — the dual-core Snapdragon S4 variant of the X. If testing on AT&T’s network works without a hitch, hopefully it’ll only be a few more weeks before we see the Jelly Beans arrive stateside.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Sprint?

    … Crickets …

    1. Wrong article, bruh. O_o

      Oh shoot. EVO LTE! Didn’t really consider that a “One X variant.”

      1. HTC EVO LTE 4G? Maybe?

        1. This is why carrier branded exclusives are dumb.

          1. they are dumb… except when the carrier actually makes the phone better than the original..

          2. Then why not just make the original better…haha.

          3. lol yeah well thats the manufacturer’s fault, not the carrier’s in that case.

          4. I like the EVO LTE a lot. Such great build quality.

          5. And it has a SD Card slot… Leave it to Sprint to make the One X variant for them better than the original

          6. The EVO LTE is better than the One X, but by differentiating it, you mess with the update schedule.

          7. Yeah i know, but in the end, would you rather your updates be delayed another month if it meant certain features that others consider deal breakers? I personally would choose the features, and then just complain about the updates later lol.

  2. I hope Scott over at XDA pops out a Clean Rom Dev version when the XL software is out.

    I still haven’t found any ROM better.

    1. He has said he would several times.
      I do not doubt the man, it’ll be coming soon as he gets a rip of it.

      1. I stopped following the thread so I never knew if he for sure said a JB CR dev would be coming. That’s great to hear though.

      2. Side Note. Decided to flash CM10 today (last time I flashed it was 2 months ago). It has come along beautifully. Going to use it as my daily driver for the next couple weeks and see if the improvements on battery life are good enough to keep it permanently.

  3. Carriers…….your the reason why we get updated last!

  4. I’d say us EVO LTE owners will have the update before December 20th.

    1. if we don’t get it by then, the world will end on the 21st!!! come on sprint!!!

    2. Hope not… That would be weeks of anxious waiting

    3. After playing with the latest stable CM10 on the EVO LTE, I’ve given up all hope for Sense not feeling like a completely bloat-ridden pig. The only downside is the lack of the awesome burst mode camera (which, believe me, was a hard one for me to get over)… but considering how liquid smooth the rest of the experience is, I’ve learned to live without it.

  5. Chris, here I thought you were replying to someone else … The EVO 4G LTE, the forgotten red headed step child …

  6. The one x better not get jb before the Samsung s3

    1. one x came out first, so it shouldve gotten it first

      1. Yes but s3 is at&t money maker and biggest seller

  7. Whatever happened to before the end of october

  8. The end of the world will be here before my gs3 gets its update to JB on AT&T

  9. I say don’t expect anything from AT&T. They have proven time and again to be incompetent when it comes to releasing updates in a timely manner. Been waiting too long for my GS3 to be updated. You know AT&T must suck if India and Sri Lanka get their updates before one of the largest carriers in the U.S.

      1. Perhaps I spoke too soon. AT&T did end up releasing Jelly Bean…… Through Kies. So all that time wasted on “testing to make sure network can handle the upgrade” was a total waste of time.

  10. ive had my htc one x international version updated over the air over a month ago ???

  11. Bring on the HTC One S updates…

  12. Only reason, next to memory I jumped to the X+
    Just got my sister a regular One X for the camera mostly, nice to see this!!!

  13. This is the 2nd time when I see an article on this website about One X getting JB. And BTW: Asia doesn’t mean globally.
