Today’s a good day if you’re an HTC One owner on T-Mobile. The company has started rolling out their Android 4.3 upgrade, just as we were promised. The upgrade brings us up to version 3.24.531.3. Android 4.3 brings a lot of under-the-hood changes such as OpenGL 3.0, ANT+ support and the TRIM garbage collection system to keep your device smooth over time.

On the HTC Sense side of things, the upgrade will bring us updated BlinkFeed features, including support for Instagram posts muddled in with all the rest of your news and social updates. You can also make video highlights as long as you want them to be.

We’re not sure how big (in size) this upgrade will be, but HTC recommends you connect to WiFi, charge your battery up to at least 30% and set aside at least 20 minutes to complete the whole thing. Be sure to find instructions for updating below, and let us know if things go well for you in the comments section.

To manually perform the update, follow these steps below:

1.       From the Home screen, tap All apps and then tap Settings.
2.       Tap About.
3.       Tap Software updates.
4.       Tap Check now.
5.       Tap OK to download the update.
6.       Tap OK to start the upgrade process. The status of the download can be viewed in the Notifications pull down.

8.       Tap OK to begin the update process to software version 3.24.531.3.
9.       The device will reboot and begin installation. You will not be able to use your device during the installation process (approximately 10 minutes).
