A couple of weeks ago, HTC started rolling out the Android 4.0.4 ICS/Sense 4.1 update for the HTC One X. The new update contained a lot of major performance enhancements, an updated Sense launcher without any of the fancy 3D animations for less reloading issues, and the ability to map the Recents app capacitive key to act as a Menu key instead.
Starting from yesterday, HTC has started rolling out the same update for the smaller brother of the One X, the One S. The update should get rid of the random lags and stuttery animations that many One S userrs have been facing for sometime. There is also a knew kernel and baseband included in this update that should improve the power management and network reception of the device.
Quite a few Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean firmware have leaked for the Samsung Galaxy S3, with there being a strong rumor of the official update landing on 29th August at the Note II unveiling at IFA in Berlin from Samsung. On the other hand, there has been no word from HTC on the Jelly Bean update availability for the One X and One S, especially when the International One X packs in the same SoC as the Nexus 7, the first device to launch with Jelly Bean on-board.
