AT&T's HTC One X+ finally gets its Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5.0 update
Last Monday, we told you that by the end of this week, the Android 4.2.2 update for the AT&T HTC One X+ would start its rollout no later than Friday with Sense 5.0 along for the ride. The good news is that the update has begun, right on time. And this means that the BlinkFeed streaming news and social media feed is now available for your phone along with the new photo gallery, Music Channel and Miracast.

Since the update is rolling out in waves, don't jump if it hasn't hit your phone yet. You can also try to pull it out of your phone by going to Settings > Software Update > Check for Updates. Some of the new features include the Daydream screen saver, the Battery Percentage Notification that allows you to have a more precise idea about the battery life left on your phone, the new lock screen that removes the ring, a new notifications bar and quick settings, the updated app tray, Auto Exposure and Auto Focus lock on the camera, an updated camera interface and a new recent apps list.

We also have some good news for those with the HTC One X. HTC says that shortly after the update starts rolling out for the HTC One X+, it will start to be pushed out for the AT&T version of the HTC One X. HTC states the update will take 20 minutes to complete. We would suggest that you be connected to a Wi-Fi network when updating your phone. And your battery must be at least 35% charged for the update to complete. If this is the end of the road for the HTC One X+, the phone is going out with a bang.

While S3 is already rocking with 4.3 and will be updated to 4.4 Q2 of this year, 4.2 would be the last update for HTC OneX & OneX+...really, HTC??.....and now you're wondering why you're struggling due to poor sales.

I'm curious to see what excuses can HTC can make now. The One X and One X+ are powered by quad core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and 4.2 is the last update for both phones which doesn't make any Sense. The Nexus 7 (2012) is powered by the same processor and it's updated to Android 4.4 KitKat.

while they share the same tegra 3 platform, they don't share the same internels, the nexus 7 uses a t30l soc, the one x uses a ap33 soc and the one x+ uses a t33 soc. all of them are different and nvidia decided to stop support on the ap33 and t33 which isn't in a lot of mobiles or tablets compared to the t30l which is in the nexus 7, surface, and a lot of other products.

I have a OneX in drawer, its the Qualcomm dual core. Then came the plus version with tegra.
The older one I have is known as One XL.
(AT&T,Telus version)

The htc one S has the same Qualcomm snapdragon chipset as the htc one xL but theyve stopped the one s on 4.1 no more then that.

They stopped the One S at 4.1 because some versions of the One S had the Snapdragon S3 chip rather than the S4, and Qualcomm dropped support for the S3.

Apparently, they would rather drop support for all variants of a model rather than only update a certain variant and leave others behind, which is questionable.

Stop trolling haters. Its the nvidia that ended support for tegra version in one x. Its not the same soc as in nexus.
