The AT&T variant of the HTC flagship handset is being actively updated to Android 4.0.4. AT&T has released a new software build (2.20.502.7) and that 270MB update brings the One X device up to the latest version of Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.
While HTC hasn’t yet commented on the availability of a Jell Bean update for the device it should be noted that this recent update brings around several major changes including the removal of the traditional Menu Bar (instead giving users the ability to remap the device’s multitasking key to follow one of three sets of behavior: Always open recent apps, press for menu and long press for recent apps, or press for recent apps and long press for menu.) and the elimination of Root Access.
Users at XDA forums indicate that the firmware upgrade may close all current root exploits.
Subscribers should note that AT&T recently dropped the price of the HTC one X on their network from $199 to $99
