The long-awaited Android 4.1.1 update for the T-Mobile HTC One S has finally arrived. The update is considerably late when compared to the international rollout which began in December of 2012, but it’s only a month behind the Android 4.1 update for the AT&T HTC One X.
To start the download process, you can manually ping T-mobile’s update servers by going to Settings > About > Software updates > Check now.
T-Mobile has yet to release its official change log for the HTC One S Android 4.1.1 update. Based on what we know about the Jelly Bean update for the international HTC One S, the US version should be getting HTC Sense 4+, Google Now, Project Butter, offline speech-to-text, advanced notifications, a handful of UI tweaks, an updated camera app with Sight Seeing mode (allows you to launch the camera app by pressing the power button) and a new gallery app which sorts images by events and time while plotting them all out on a map.
Since we have a T-mobile HTC One S on hand, we decided to document the Android 4.1.1 update and install process by creating a Video Highlight with the HTC One. We hope you enjoy it.
