T-Mobile rolls out Jelly Bean update for the HTC One S


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.

    Sweet just in time to sell mine to offset the cost of my HTC One (which I’m completely in love with btw)

  • pujan

    Don’t mean to point fingers but December of 2013 is in the future. And late but at least htc one s got the jelly.

    That’s ironic, I just got the OTA jelly bean update for my Xperia Ion today

    Hallellujah! Too late, I just ordered an HTC One lol

  • Ryan Paredez

    Great.. they had to add Soundhound as part of the update.. I already have the paid version so I have to have two of the same apps on my phone for no fucking reason. Same with where is my water. They need to work on creating some sort of system to know if someone already has a paid version of app not to preload the free one. What a waste of space.

    My phone as also been syching for like 30 minutes.. I feel like my phone is going to burst it’s so damn hot

    675.49 mb for an Android update! Cyanogenmod 10.1 (based on Android 4.2) for my device takes 250 mb uncompressed. Just what is HTC putting in Sense thesse days?

    About time HTC!

    Kind of a mediocre update. No expanded notifications, extra bloatware, this is very disappointing.

  • Hansom

    People: this update REMOVES THE USB MASS STORAGE OPTION for to connect to a PC without installing the HTC sync stupid application. That means: if you was using your phone to connect to your car stereo via USB cable to play songs stored on it, you WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO THIS ANYMORE.

    Thanks to HTC for to screw a very good feature!!!

    Jellybean update has been much anticipated, but there are a couple bugs. One the obvious….the battery life, but I’ve noticed if you put it on power save, it does extend the life of the battery. Now also I’m all about my music, to load the music from my computer you have to “mount” the phone in order to transfer your files from computer to phone. The current jellybean, does not allow you to mount the phone….the option is available, but is greyed out. If HTC WANTS to keep my business this needs to be addressed soon.

    Peformed the update on HTC one S ( tmobile). No noticeable problems with battery life after the upgrade, which actually seems to have improved.

    One bug definitely has been the frequent crashing of Google MAPS app, with the GPS turned on in Navigation mode. I have tried at least 10 times after reboots, and MAPS will crash each time. Too bad, since I had almost phased out my Garmin unit out to the 2nd car, which will be now needed again back in this car. The phone GPS when turned on, sucks up battery like crazy. Its good for like 4-6 hours after, if you are lucky.
