The buttery smooth Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has made its way to the international version of HTC One X, days after the new OS first wowed attendees at the Google I/O conference, thanks to the fine works of the folks at XDA-developers.
The Jelly Bean port for the HTC One X, which was based on the Galaxy Nexus Android 4.1 ROM, is by no means perfect as it’s still in its early days. Here are the currently known issues:
Note that there might be more bugs that need to be worked on. The developers’ priority is to make the phone function, data and WiFi work on the port, so you may want to hold out a little bit longer if you want to use your phone to, umm, make calls and connect to the web. That being said, the One X Jelly Bean port seems to be running smooth with no reboots, hangs, lags and the likes. It’s up to you to decide whether the loss of some of the major functions of the phone is worth the trade-off.
Head to the original thread at XDA-developers for more details and instructions on how to get a preliminary taste of Jelly Bean on your international HTC One X. And as always, proceed at your own risk.
As for folks who like to keep it safe and stock, Ausdroid reports that HTC has just released the following official statement regarding Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade for their phones:
We are excited about Android Jelly Bean and are planning to support it across a variety of our devices. We are reviewing the software to determine our upgrade plans and schedule, so please stay tuned for more updates on specific device upgrade plans.
Yeah, it looks like HTC Jelly Bean updates are still a long way to go. Want to play a guessing game of how long it’ll take for the Jelly Bean update to reach your HTC devices?
