HTC One Android 4.2.2 update hits the UK

HTC One Android 4.2.2 update hits the UKFor (some) HTC One users in the UK, the wait for the latest version of Google’s ubiquitous smartphone OS, Jelly Bean Android 4.2.2, is finally over.

The Taiwanese manufacturer made the announcement on its Facebook page this morning, and it sounds like good news for at least some of the UK mobile networks.

The problem is, see, the networks need to approve Android software updates before rolling them out, and inevitably some networks are tardier than others.

Meanwhile, those with unlocked handsets would generally expect to be at the head of the software update queue.

Browsing through the comments, HTC One customers on O2, Orange and Vodafone all claim to have installed the Android 4.2.2 update, though it’s not entirely clear if their handsets are of the network locked variety.

If the HTC One Android 4.2.2 update doesn’t pop up immediately, tap these things: Settings > About > Software Updates > Check now.

Predictably, there are several comments from angry customers bemoaning the fact that the HTC One S has been abandoned, just over a year from its release. HTC confirmed as much earlier this month.

Anyone here rocking an HTC One? Any sign of the Jelly Bean Android 4.2.2 update? Hit us up below.

Yup update is definetely here! But I do have a sim free model so not too sure about network branded phones.

Yep, I've got it too on my sim free model. Only problem is it looks to have broken Google Keyboard; it's not even possible to select it as an input option anymore :(

Wish we went back to a time when 'we' reported on changes to the first digit... not the second after the comma. You know...

So, what does 4.2.2 do to the One? Any noticeable improvements? Features?

I downloaded the update onto my Vodafone supplied contract HTC One at about 2 pm (U.K. Time) on Monday 15th July.

Nice seeing that SIM-free owners are at the head of the queue...unlike those of us with Xperia Z's, Voda and 3 released their branded 4.2.2 two weeks ago, still nothing on SIM free!

Well they finally got rid of the stupid black bar for the menu. The phone was pretty fast before the update, so no real improvement there.The exapandable notifications are pretty neat.

But overall nothing that amazing tbh.

Got the update today - with three

Firstly there was a small system update then a restart, then I checked again the latest 4.2.2 update available....downloading just now

I'm still waiting for my update. Is your phone a Three branded phone, or an unlocked phone with a 3 SIM?

cau96176  Jul. 18, 2013 at 14:07

My phone has no branding and I bought it from affordable mobiles so I suppose there is every chance it is unlocked.....but I am unable to check.

Ive managed to upgrade to 4.2 and there's some improvments although I appear to have lost the beautiful tile page style in my photo gallery.. When one hits the gallery app it now goes stright to your photos tabs, shame..
