HTC One Android 4.2.2 Update: Changes Detailed, Roll Out Soon

The HTC One Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update apparently has rolled out for some devices, specifically the dual-SIM variant in China, and thanks to that small roll out, we now have a full change log for the update and a sign that the Android 4.2.2. roll out for the international HTC One should be just around the corner, possibly today.

For weeks now, the HTC One Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update has dominated Android news as owners of the flagship device wait for HTC to roll out the latest version of Android to their device. The update has seen a number of significant developments including rumored release dates and timing with two carriers revealing that they expect the update sometime in July.

However, the update itself had yet to roll out, that is, until today when noted HTC leakster @LlabTooFeR revealed that the dual-SIM HTC One on China Unicom started to receive its update. It’s unclear right now just how widespread the update is or if it has hit tons of people but it looks like the update has indeed landed for at least one owner of this variant.

The roll out has produced a change log for the update as well which shows what HTC One owners can expect from HTC’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean update. The changes are fairly substantial and should please those that have waited patiently for the software to arrive, assuming it doesn’t bring any big time bugs along with it.

What’s more is that @LLabTooFeR says that the international HTC One Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update could roll out at any time, even today. And given the emergence of the update in China, that could definitely hold up. Whatever the case may be, the roll out appears to be close and could very well be touching down soon.

HTC tends to stagger its roll outs, meaning, some regions get it before others. After the unbranded models get the software, carrier models then get it and thus far, carriers have suggested that they will be rolling out the software in July.

American carriers still haven’t made their plans known but since they are typically last to software, there is no telling if they will roll out Android 4.2 Jelly Bean to the HTC One in July or not.


  1. Any idea about messaging changes? I know one of my biggest upsets with my HTC one coming from the iPhone was the lack of notification and popup support with the messaging and group messages.

    • I hadn’t even thought of that until I read your comment. Now it’s going to bug the crap out of me! haha

    • Pop up notification isn’t On android unless you use a third party application from the Google play. I don’t see group messages coming to android at all until BBM is here and Google will attempt to get rid of it and bake it into messaging software. Also the notifications are good, they may not be as good as iPhones but it works great for androids! Haha.

    • Give “Go SMS Pro” a shot
      , you can find it in the play store, and it replaces the stock sms, very customizable. It has pop-up that wakes the phone just like the iphone, and even has doodle, which means you can draw on pictures that you send via mms.Hope this helps.

  2. I’m curious about that “New Lock screen Style: Widgets”. Is that what will allow us to use Dashclock Widget on the One?!

      • I know it’s a 4.2 feature, but I’ve had 4.2.2 on my One for a couple weeks. Granted, it is a pre-release version, but it was directly from HTC, and it did not support lock screen widgets. It’s a nice surprise.
