HTC One X update begins OTA rollout


HTC is pushing out an OTA update to the HTC One X which should fix a large portion of the troubles the flagship smartphone has faced since launching. A number of users have complained about battery life and overheating (reportedly due to a misplaced power management app), instability, as well as issues with using hardware buttons in Ice Cream Sandwich that we highlighted in our review.

We'll have to wait for the dust to settle to see if this really does solve every problem users have had, but initial reports from Android Central claim on-screen menu and auto-brightness sensitivity issues have been resolved. Fudzilla also uploaded a screenshot of popular benchmarking app AnTuTu posting 11,290 — that's higher than pre-update scores, indicating improved general performance (although benchmarks are by no means definitive). The update's official title is 1.28.401.9, it's around a 30MB download, and won't overwrite any of your data. You can check to see if the update is ready for your device by heading to Software Updates inside the "About" settings menu on your One X.
