European HTC One handsets start to receive Android 4.4.2 update (Update: OTA zip available)

by: Mark WilsonJanuary 28, 2014

Android 4.4 KitKat

HTC is starting the rollout of the Android 4.4.2 update to HTC One handset in Europe. Back in November the company had told HTC One owners to expect the update to appear by the end of January, and this is precisely what’s happening. As ever, the availability of the update is dependent on country and carrier, and it is likely to take some weeks before 4.4.2 is available to everyone.

The OS update weighs in at 308MB and, as well as bringing KitKat to the HTC One, it also adds support for Bluetooth profiles as well as cloud printing options. Unspecified security changes are also part of the update — including the removal of Flash support. In keeping with the look of stock versions of KitKat, HTC’s OTA update sees the battery icons text changing to white; there are no other reported changes.

As yet there is no word on when US HTC One users can expect to see the update, but it is probably not too far behind the European roll out, given the recent announcement that it’s “in the hands of carriers now”.

Update: XDA users have captured the OTA zip file you can use to flash the update manually. Check it out here. Via:

      To be honest with you as I’m aware they won’t bother to update One X and X+.

      • Jayfeather787

        I know but they should release it for the X and X+.

        • VladUK

          I agree with you 100% that is why I sold my One X+ because I had a feeling they wont upgrade it.
