AT&T pulls Android 4.1 update notice for HTC One X
Earlier on Thursday, a post on AT&T's blog announced that the Android 4.1 update would be coming to the carrier's version of the HTC One X. But it looks like the post was put up by accident as the announcement was later taken down. Still, while it might not happen today, the post could indicate that the update will be coming soon.

Android 4.1 should be coming soon to AT&T's HTC One X

Android 4.1 should be coming soon to AT&T's HTC One X

According to AT&T, the update will bring the usual Jelly Bean goodies like Project Butter for lag-free UI responsiveness, Google Now for the latest information you want when you want it, and the Notifications enhancements that allow you to take action right from your notification page. In addition, you will be able to view full SMS messages and MMS photos from your notification page.

Also coming is a new countdown timer for the front-facing camera to help you better take self-portraits. Keep your documents, photos and videos safely tucked away in the AT&T Locker, the carrier's name for its cloud-based storage offering. AT&T DriveMode will automatically send a text message to those trying to call you, text you or send you an email when you are in a vehicle moving faster than 25MPH. And AT&T Messages is a universal in-box for your texts, calls, and voicemail messages.

Ok, so none of these features will be on your AT&T HTC One X today, but it does give you something to look forward to.

**UPDATE**

Well folks, it seems that Jelly Bean is a go for the veteran smartphone, seeing that's the official word from AT&T. As always, you can snag the update by clicking on the "Check for updates" option in the Android settings. Be merry folks, be very merry right now!

HTC used to be the best at upgrading their devices.

It was released, then pulled, and then released again.

It's AT&T to blame this time as the global variant received JB months ago.

The Global versions used the Tegra 3, so that is even more of a fail.

Either way, still pretty slow to receive the update.

My Evo got JB last December, so something tells me this is more AT&T's fault...

The international One X got it back in October. This delay is AT&T's fault.

Look who is him! The one who called me an "HTC fanboy", tell me something, am i an HTC fanboy or are you just a mad HTC hater?

My One X has been running JB since October, just saying.

Look at the damn troll. My EVO 4g LTE has jelly since November. Same same the one on ATT. Stop trolling.

Yeah. The GS3 got it ages ago so HTC still sucks. I am just stating the facts here.

The EVO 4G LTE got Jelly Bean in December, The GS3 on Sprint (the first in the U.S to get it) got Jelly Bean in October. 2 months isn't that big a difference, it's the same time frame that Verizon had for the Galaxy Nexus' 4.1 update, and the same for the other U.S GS3's (aside from T-Mobile) to get 4.1.

The international One X got 4.1 in October, the international GS3 got it in September, but there were a lot of bugs so Samsung cancelled the update and released a revised version in October.

It was AT&T's fault for the delay on the One X, not HTC's. You called me a Samsung hater (falsely, might I add) when you're bashing HTC for no good reason.

Well, it's better late than never. My Atrix was promised ICS until AT&T canned that idea. Hopefully, this update along with a new case will make me hold on to my One X a little longer to decide between the One or GS4.

Makes you wonder how long it will take the AT & T HTC One to get key lime pie. Too long HTC.

Ever since I updated to 4.1 on my one x my Wi-Fi has yet to work, even though my tablet and all other devices are working fine

Sounds like typical HTC testing. Which means that they probably didn't even test it before releasing it over the air.

I just wanted to add some feedback. . The update is working great but there are some minor bugs. When you turn off the screen and want to turn it back on, from the time you press the power button until the screen turns on there is about a 3 second delay and is very annoying. There is a lot of junk from att but that is expected. The camera interface is friendlier. They decided to add this annoying toolbar in their browser but an easy fix is just to download another browser. Otherwise, the update is solid.
