    Default Breaking news: ATT jelly bean update for the HOX is being written by hand.

    Turns out, the reason we have been waiting for the jelly bean update for so long over here in the states, is because of one executives unique experiment.
    He states "We have heard that the cortex architecture in the ipad chips is optimized by hand over at apple, and we decided to take this idea one step further"
    He continues, "We have been writing the code to the HOX jelly bean update entirely by hand, with ink and paper, in an attempt to make the best android update ever seen, free of bugs"
    This unorthodox approach is taking the company up to 3 times longer than regular updates, and has yet to be proven as more reliable. The HTC One X is a solid 2 upgrade cycles behind, and may be inching up to 3. When asked if they would begin work on the next update in this fashion, the executive replied "Oh hell no, we're cranking that out and getting on with ourselves. Don't be ridiculous"


    But seriously folks, wtf.......

    This is fictitious, why do the one XL's in Asia and Canada have the update? Htc may have done the "written by hand" but were finished last month, December 17th when they released the 4.1 update to Asia markets. The only thing att does is add their restrictions and bloat and to make sure their apps work on it before they release it.

    I have the 4.1 update on my phone via rom, and it is stable with no issues

    And "the one x is a solid 2 upgrades behind"? Right, the gs3 got jelly bean December 13th to 27th and they were considered "on time". Whoever wrote that article that you are quoting is clearly just **** hurt that they don't have the update yet

    Um, I think he was being sarcastic. "**** Hurt"? Sure, since every One X in the world except AT&T's pretty much has their update now.

    Besides, I'm pretty sure they're carving it into stone using ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs. Pen and paper kills too many trees.

    I was stating whoever wrote that article, but if you made this up I must say its the best venting on the forums for lack of update I have ever seen. Bravo. Haha

    Now I will tuck my tail and walk

    My whole thing is, why keep complaining when you know it's not coming yet? You can do something about it ya know -- root and put ViperXL on it.. No bloat, better performance and you get to stick it to att by tethering without needing the plan for it

    Article I was quoting? I'm flattered, but no. I was just being silly, after being frustrated with waiting on ATT.
    I want to use my xbox controller and HOX as a homemade "nvidia shield", but then I remembered that I don't have USB on the go until the jelly bean update.

    So when should we expect JB? Later than expected? Will we fall far behind from Rogers instead of just being lightly worse? AT&T is losing so many customers in the future, me included. It's past early January where they were speculating, will we even receive it Q1?

    Ya, I highly doubt that they will lose "so many customers" considering the majority don't care about updates. And if you leave att you will pay more (Verizon) or have worse service (sprint).. So have fun with that

    It will be absolutely hilarious if the Galaxy Note, S2, and Skyrocket get JB before the HTC One X, which seems quite possible at this point.

    I'd throw my One X on the highway if that were the case.

    Lol. Yea, I just seen AT&T tweet that a couple hours ago. How embarrassing for HTC, and clearly this is why they're losing the early adopter/enthusiast crowd to Samsung.

    They're losing the early adoption because htc didn't advertise anything. Samsung spent millions upon millions in marketing, htc doesn't have as many products as Sammy to back it up with that good of marketing.

    I think the whole "this phone hasn't seen an update yet!" Fury isn't as widespread as most people think. The majority of people that buy phones don't choose based on updates. They look at specs and quality.

    I barely watch TV and the only ads I've seen about a Samsung phone are the ones linked on forums and the ones I searched for because I seen it during the super bowl or something. I do, however, follow tech blogs and I see a Samsung Rugby Pro getting updated to JB and release dates for GS2 JB updates while the HTC One X on AT&T is still stuck on ICS.

    You don't need marketing to tell me which manufacturer offers a better, more future proof investment.

    And no, it's not as widespread as you're saying people think, but this is Android Central, not the Facebook Soccer Mom group.

    You mean to tell me that you haven't seen the multiple commercials making fun of apple customers? There's more than a handful, and it was brilliant if you ask me. Meanwhile htc sat on their thumbs and released a device to one major carrier, rather than all 4 in the US.

    If you've ever had a htc phone before this, not getting an update "on time" isn't new. Shoulda chose a different phone instead of crying on the Internet

    I have never rooted, flashed, etcetera and I'm wondering how easy it is. Also, I've heard that certain features don't work on a rooted, flashed phone. 1 that I heard was burst mode for the camera. Is that true?

    It really is easy, but I would advise to read up on it plenty, before you actually unlock-root-and rom.

    I was running the newest ViperXL, it's sense JB (the same JB that att is holding back, only with tweaks).. Any sense rom will have the sense camera, and I can confirm burst mode works very well. AOSP roms have the stock google/cm camera, and it doesnt have as good of a burst mode.

    This toolkit is the easiest way to get things done.

    But I advise you read up on navigating through the bootloader, and how to properly flash before you do it.

    EDIT: this toolkit is for the AT&T/Rogers one x (known as the OneXL).. If you have the international one x, there is a different toolkit

    Bizzle69, you seem so angry and confrontational. That's surprising, seeing as how your username would suggest that you are the epitome of sophistication.

    It was in response to the "Facebook for soccer moms" comment.. But you are right, shoulda kept my mouth shut.

    Just frustrated with seeing people being irrational about this whole thing, but that's just my opinion. Maybe I'm wrong

    I got tired of waiting for the JB ugrade I dumped my phone for a Nexus 4. I also believe the issue that people have with HTC is the One X + vs One X. The One X + launched with JB and we still can't get JB and the Samsung Rugby is getting it.

    I'm not trying to state or start anything, but I was just thinking and came up with an idea. Samsung is indeed paying millions upon millions for advertising, and the HOX and HOX+ are major competitors with the S3. Could it be possible that some deal was made, or something was done to purposely delay the update for AT&T to get HOX users that care about updates to make the jump to the S3? I know there are many problems with this idea, like why do something that gets people mad at your company, and it is probably just bloatware, but what are the chances that something like a deal happened?

    I would say the chances of a deal being made like this are slim to none. Samsung has made a ton off their smartphones recently, and the one X isn't that well known of a phone to warrant such a thing. AT&T is notoriously slow with updates, January has come and gone more or less, and who knows when they will begin pushing it out now.
