The HTC One X is one of this year’s flagship Android handset, but unless you’re running a custom ROM right now, chances are that you’re not on Google’s Jelly Bean, the Android 4.1.1 kind.

But now a tipster tells us that HTC is finally rolling out the Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean update for the handset – we have no idea when Android 4.2 will be available for the device – with various other Android sites confirming the news.

In case you’re based in either Europe, Asia or South Africa and have an international One X model (either CID_038 or CID_044) then you should check whether your Jelly Bean update awaits for you. These are unlocked One X versions, mind you, so if you rock a carrier-branded model then you’re probably going to have to wait some more to get your hands on Google’s buttery Jelly Bean update.

As for the nature of the update, HTC Source reports:

Similar to the Android 4.1 update for the HTC One X in India, users will first see a smaller 1.6MB download which is followed by the main 364.54MB Jelly Bean update.

In other words, make sure you have a decent Internet connection and enough battery juice to get your Jelly Bean on!

Thanks, David!

    Eventually coming to South Africa!!! I have been waiting quit some time to update to Jelly Bean. As I am not a fan of custom ROM’s because HTC Sense provides the best custom performance the HTC One X can handle. LOVE IT

    HTC has promised this update a long time ago and we still see nothing in Europe.

    My One X is an unlocked one bought from the UK with a CID_001 identifier. No sign of any update yet. Anyone know when its expected?

      CID_001 over here in the UK too – no sign of it. Pretty sure this CID is one of the unbranded one, but the author of this article begs to differ?

    I’m glad I’m out of the manufacture dictated update cycle with my Nexus coming this week, no more waiting and won’t have to upgrade for another at least two years.

    I got the OTA update (as mentioned in the article – a tiny one followed by 360MB..Huge improvement in battery life :) is the most obvious change!

    With Android 4.1.1 on my HTC One X now I cannot see it as a hard drive in my Mac. Is there any possibility to continue using the HTC as a hard drive like before?.
