Android 4.4.2 KitKat update starts rolling to the HTC One
Just as promised for the end of January, HTC One owners are starting to receive their over the air Android 4.4.2 KitKat update. We received numerous tips from folks with HTC One over in Europe that the update has hit their handsets.
In addition, the firmware file itself has been extracted and available for sideloading on your handset, if you are too impatient to wait for the official notification to pop up on your HTC One display.
If you are interested, get over to XDA-Devs for downloading, ROM cooking and installation instructions. As for the US versions of the HTC One, One mini, and the One max phablet, these are currently undergoing carrier certifications of the update, so we should be getting the KitKat goodies on the Ones at this side of the pond by the end of the work week, too.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
