HTC has finally begun rolling out its Android 4.1 Jelly Bean upgrade to unlocked, international One X handsets. In addition to all the new features and improvements Google’s latest mobile platform brings, the update reportedly makes the One X “extremely fast.”
When your handset will receive it, however, is a guessing game. Android Central reports that HTC’s rollout is a complicated one, and that not all unlocked handsets will receive the software at the same time; it all depends on the region in which your handset was purchased:
Rather than being pushed to all phones in a particular region, HTC pushes out updates to certain devices based on their CID (Customer ID) in each region. For example, phones with a CID of htc__612 are sold to carriers in Taiwan, and they started receiving their OTA last night. Alternatively, my unlocked phone with a CID of htc__044 hasn’t received it yet, even though it’s also sold in Taiwan (among other locales). I told you it was complicated.
If your handset has a CID of “htc_612,” then, you can be sure you will be receiving the upgrade imminently if you haven’t already. What’s more, HTC has confirmed that the update is “rolling out now” around Asia and Europe.
