Taiwanese mobile phone maker HTC Corporation has yet to make the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system available for its HTC One X smartphone, yet unofficial builds are already up for download for the device.
The quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3-based smartphone has a lot to offer to its users, although the latest platform release from Google’s Android team hasn’t landed on it as of yet.
The OS upgrade is expected to become available as soon as this month, at least this is what the handset vendor has officially announced last week, when it made the HTC One X+ official.
Today, however, we learn that Android 4.1 is already available for the quad-core One X, although in an unofficial manner.
Courtesy of Jelly Bean for HTC One X+, the guys over at XDA-Developers managed to come up with an Android 4.1.1 with Sense 4+ ROM for the older smartphone.
Unfortunately, the platform is not available for all units out there, but only for about a dozen of them, currently available for purchase unlocked in Europe.
The list of supported models includes: cidnum: HTC__001, cidnum: HTC__E11, cidnum: HTC__203, cidnum: HTC__102, cidnum: HTC__405, cidnum: HTC__Y13, cidnum: HTC__A07, cidnum: HTC__304, cidnum: HTC__M27, cidnum: HTC__032, cidnum: HTC__016, and cidnum: HTC__J15.
Those who found their handset model in the list above and would like to load the new ROM on it should head over to this thread on the XDA-Developers forum to learn more on the matter.
They should keep in mind that, since this is not an official release, it requires tweaking the smartphone, which will void warranty. They will be the only ones held responsible in the event that something wrong happens with the smartphone.
