HTC reaffirms Android 4.2.2 for the HTC One is still inbound


Three UK Support Android 4.2 HTC One cancelled

If you came across this little tweet from Three UK’s Twitter support team, don’t be alarmed — Android 4.2.2 is still scheduled to arrive on the HTC One. You know the drill. The rumor began churning after a rep from Three’s support told a customer that Android 4.2 for the One was “pulled” and wouldn’t be arriving for the HTC One on their network anytime soon.

Upon hearing this, the boys at Engadget were able to get a more official word direct from HTC who quickly threw water on the fire, assuring that Android 4.2 is, in fact, still coming soon to the One… it just needs a little more time in the oven. It’s entirely possible that if the release had some hiccups on Three’s network and needed to be sent back to HTC for revisions, that might explain the delay we’re seeing with the update here in the states. But then again, you know… carriers.

As for me, I’ll be dreaming of the day I’ll finally get to have quick toggles on my HTC One. Pick your feet up, HTC/US carriers/whoever!

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. I don’t want to see the damn “power saver” feature when I pull down the notification pane, anymore!

    1. *braces for downvotes* root it!

      1. I am waiting to see how 4.2.2 before doing anything. Once I see that 4.2.2 sucks, I will root and flash. :)

      2. LoL!! *only gets 1 downvote*

    2. get the following app in the app store . dont need to have a custom rom, just need to be rooted: JMZ power saver disable

    3. I’m running Sense 5 and 4.2.2 on my HTC one a
      Ready, and HtC has fixed this and now includes the power saver option in the quick toggle area. Trust, the 4.2.2 update is a dream, works really well

      1. Ima wait for the ROM I’m using to update to 4.2.2. I can’t wait to use it. Ima go check. Also the Kernel I’m using needs to be compatible as well. I think it is.

    4. tap and hold powersaver option in notification panel, tap app info, tap force stop. problem gone until next reboot :) but i agree, i think they should just make it a little icon next to the settings icon in the noti panel :/ you can check out 4.2.2 on HTC Butterfly S hands on from Engadget China, though its in chnese but hey its the first :P

  2. Hopefully it’ll come by late June/early July!

  3. Man I don’t know how much longer I can hold off rooting this bad boy, I was hoping to after the official 4.2.2 , but Trickdroid is calling me ……………….geeeeze I’ll give it another month or so then its S Off for me………….

  4. I want the quick settings and maybe drop the power save bar from my drop down

  5. We’ll probably see the HTC ONE MINI w/4.2.2 before it’s released for the ONE.

    1. Doesn’t matter as long as they both receive 4.2.2.


  7. Say what you want about Apple, but the damn carriers didn’t release the iOS software updates, Apple did–and it was all the iPhones at once, not one Phone here, one phone three months later.

    1. Yeah…. but… it’s the..eww…iphone.


    2. Tell me more about how some of the phones can’t use all of the new features.

    3. And for the phones where Google manages the software (GSM Nexus phones), it goes out to all of them (roughly) at once, too. If Apple allowed Samsung and Motorola and HTC to build iPhones, they would have the same problem.

    4. Yes, because iPhone can’t function like an android without an update that tries to catch up to Android.

  8. Running 4.2.2 here (ARHD) and it’s frakking fabulous. Trickdroid is good too. Anyone willing to take the leap and root/flash should definitely check those ROMs out.

  9. Yeah it only took a year and a half for ics. which was also “reaffirmed”

  10. In true HTC fashion, they’ll probably support the One with updates for about six months, then forsake it as they did the Rezound.

    1. The situation with the Rezound sucks, but it’s far from the HTC norm on anyone but Verizon.

      T-Mo Sensation 4G, launched with 2.2, ICS update at 11 months old. Dream went from 1.0 to Donut. Magic went from Cupcake to Froyo. Evo 4G from Eclair to Gingerbread…

      And even on Verizon it’s just super slow. Thunderbolt got ICS in February, 10 months after it was discontinued, 2 years after it was released.

    2. Usually Verizon bound hTC had no success, just look at Rezound and Droid DNA. The only hTC was successful in Verizon was probably the very first Droid Incredible. I hope hTC will steer away from stupid verizon who customize hTC phones but advertise none of them.

    3. I can’t stand when people judge a company based on a cheap mid ranged phone experience……. You get what you pay for, so if you want the updates stop being cheap and buy a high end device.

  11. You need to just flash 4.2.2 Chris. You have a dev phone.

    1. I….. I’m trying to avoid rooting. The phone is great as-is, I just really want dem toggles :/

      1. Yeah these toggles are great. And they are all consistent with each other. Single press toggles and 3 dot icon to open menu. No long press like aosp.

      2. I’m using Power Toggles for now….

  12. Long press on the power saver icon in the notification bar then press app info then force stop. The power saver will remain on but it will not show in the notification bar.

  13. Lmao @HtcOne #SlowUpdate

  14. Yea, no reason hTC opted out 4.2.2 on their best seller flagship.

  15. wie komme ich vom micro sd karte auf den internen speicher von htc umstellen.wäre für jeden vorschlag dank bar.
