HTC releases Android 4.0.4 update for Tegra 3 powered HTC One X


A week after releasing the Android 4.0.4 update for the AT&T HTC One X, HTC is now releasing the update for the NVIDIA Tegra 3 powered HTC One X in Europe. While the underlying version of Android may be the same, some of the new features and bug fixes are slightly different since the two devices run on a completely different chip.

The update for the Tegra 3 One X features improvements to HTC Sense, memory management, updated browser with a dedicated tab switching button, menu button remapping to the recent apps button, enhancements to Beats Audio and other system stability tweaks. Developers will now have access to SDK enhancements for better Media Link integration and improved video calling capabilities for third-party applications.

To check to see if the Android 4.0.4 update is available for you HTC one X, go to  Settings > About Phone > HTC Software Updates > Check. Now that the Android 4.0.4 update is rolling out to the HTC One X, HTC should be able to shift its focus to Android 4.1 and hopefully deliver a Jelly Bean flavored update before Q3 is out.

Show Press Release
As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure customers are receiving software updates that improve their user experience, we are pleased to announce our next upgrade for the HTC One X will be released on August 10th.

The primary update will include an upgrade to Android version 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich), in addition to an improved Sense experience which will: enable the ability to map menu function to the ‘recent app’ key (improving visual presentation in non ICS apps like Facebook); improve tab management in the browser with a dedicated tab switching button and enhance camera capabilities such as white balance and continuous autofocus. Furthermore, customers can expect enhancements to memory, platform stability and the overall browsing experience. Other improvements include a Single Sign-On for Facebook allowing user access across applications and browsers and upgrades to Beats audio, which reflect our dedication to providing an authentic sound experience.

From a developer perspective, we are expanding SDK support for Media Link and providing a framework for video call applications to achieve improved performance and quality.

      I learned my lesson after Tegra 2. Never buy a Tegra device. nVidia protects their IP like its the last gold on earth. We could not do any serious dev work because they never gave us sufficient driver source code. All they would give us is binaries and no source code.
