The HTC One X’s wait for Android 4.2.2 (the last official update for the phone) will soon be over. @moversi (product manager at HTC) has shared that AT&T has completed technical approval of the update which has a scheduled OTA release date of January 29. The AT&T HTC One X’s Android 4.2.2 update will be accompanied with Sense 5 which will give the phone a new UI along with new features like BlinkFeed and Video Highlights – two features which made their debut on the HTC One. We are disappointed that the HTC One X will not be updated beyond Android 4.2.2, but the bump up to Sense 5 should keep most One X happy with their handsets until they are able to upgrade to a new phone.

What Android 4.2.2 or Sense 5 feature are you looking forward to with the AT&T HTC One X update this week?

    Halle-friggin-lujah! OTA targeted for 1/29, add another 4-6 weeks “just in case” which would put 4.2.2 out about a year after it debuted. AT&T bites the big one.

    It’s stories like these that frighten me away from OEM’s like Samsung, Sony and HTC. I do prefer Stock Android but some features of custom UI’s like Sense I do like.

      Unlocked version seem to get updates faster. You could also go with a GPe version of them, which nave received updates fairly fast.

    If my memory is correct the HTC One X and X+ was released in the SAME year as the Galaxy S3 with close specifications so how comes the S3 will get even 4.4 Kitkat while the One X going to 4.2 yet month end oh my shame on HTC we expect better from you

    • eryc

      Part of the problem is that the One X uses a Tegra processor and the 4.4 update isn’t going to work on HTC with that.

  • Derek

    This is what’s wrong with Android. All this time waiting for a 4.2.2 update….the current version of software is 4.4.2. It’s still two versions out of date.

  • JASON NEWLAND

    UPDATED IT THIS MORNING FOR MY ONE X AND GUESS WHAT HAPPENED? WENT THRU THE MOTIONS OF UPDATING AND WHEN I CHECKED THE SOFTWARE, IT STILL SAYS 4.1.1 OK THEN

    • enriquey

      WTH…Updated 30 mins ago as well but software info still reflects 4,1,1

    • jmchatton

      It’s probably like the One X+ update, where there were two OTA updates. The first is a roughly 16 MB prep update, then the second is a larger, roughly 500 MB update that is the one that updates the OS and Sense

      • jmchatton

        This is definitely the case. I have a One X and I’m doing this now. Just turn off automatic day and time and set the day to tomorrow, then check again for updates.

        • enriquey

          NIce, seems to be processing the 530mb update!

          Kudos on the simple workaround!
