AT&T and HTC are apparently in the process of rolling out the HTC One X Android 4.0.4 update, an update that brings an extremely useful feature along with it.
According to Android Central, the AT&T HTC One X Android 4.0.4 update is hitting some devices Over-the-Air (OTA) right now, though, it doesn’t appear as though everyone is seeing the update as of yet. The changelog for the update has also yet to arrive.
The update is massive, checking in at 270MB. That means that those HTC One X owners who are lucky enough to receive the update today should expect a fairly lengthy download and installation process.
That being said, once that process is over with, the HTC One X will be a much improved device.
The HTC One X on AT&T has, since day one, had an annoying feature called the menu bar which served in place of a menu button. When an app opened that didn’t have compatibility with Ice Cream Sandwich, the device would show three useless little dots instead of actual navigation buttons.
Thankfully, this update changes things, allowing users to long press on multitasking button to use it as a menu button. That may not sound like much to those that don’t own an HTC One X, but it’s a dream come true for those that own the device.
It also looks like the software might break root. So, those that are using a rooted HTC One X should probably avoid this update as it may contain security fixes that don’t play nice with rooted devices.
We assume the update is also full of other bug fixes and enhancements though, those will remain unknown until HTC and AT&T spill the beans.
All in all, this is a crucial update for the HTC One X and one that owners should be overjoyed about.
Anyone seeing it just yet?
