T-Mobile HTC One S Android 4.1.1 update now available

T-Mobile HTC One S Android 4.1.1 update now available

The Android 4.1.1 update for the HTC One S is finally being pushed out by T-Mobile. We’re not sure if it’s a coincidence that the update has been released 24 hours after T-Mobile’s HTC One retail launch, but it does look a little suspicious.

If you have not received a notification on your HTC One S to download the Jelly Bean update, you can manually ping T-Mobile’s update servers by going to Settings > About > Software updates > Check now.

With HTC One S Android 4.1.1 update weighs in at 675.49 MB. Due to the size of the update, T-Mobile has made the decision that the update can only be downloaded over Wi-Fi. If you’ve owned your HTC One S for a while, we’d suggest doing a little storage cleanup before you start the download process. Half way through our first download attempt, we received a notification which said that download could not continue because of inadequate storage space on the device.

T-Mobile has yet to release the official change log for the HTC One S Android 4.1.1 update, but we’re assuming that HTC has included all of the same Jelly Bean and HTC Sense 4+ features that the HTC One X received last month.

  • Google Now, which provides you with the latest relevant information you need, when you need it. Whether you’re checking the weather, checking flight information, tracking a package or more, you can get the information that matters most immediately in a single swipe.
  • Changes to the notification display that groups updates from the same application together and allows you to expand or collapse any notification.
  • The ability to view the full text of an SMS message and the full photo of a MMS in the notification window.
  • An event notifications display that offers more of the event description, allowing you to quickly see relevant details without having to open an app.
  • New countdown timer for the front-facing camera.

Just for fun. We created a video highlight of the HTC one S Android 4.1.1 download and install with the HTC One. Enjoy!

    Yay! I’m using the hotspot on my HTC One to update my HTC One S! I had a feeling this would release shortly after the launch.

  • Carlos

    Great to see it happen – I was starting to worry that it wouldn’t.

    I just purchased the developers edition 64gb HTC One. I’m planning on taking my unlocked phones to Tmobile. My question is will I have access to 4GLTE as well as HSPA+ on this phone. I’m reading different things and I’m confused. Any help would be appreciated.

    • Carlos

      Alex, you’re asking in an article about a different phone model…

      It’ll depend on where you are. The developers’ edition supports some HSPA+ frequencies, but not the one that T-Mobile has mostly used in the past (1700MHz, I think). That’s typical of international models of unlocked GSM phones, or AT&T phones. T-Mobile has recently started rolling out HSPA+ on other frequencies (a lot of people call that “refarmed”). If you’re one of those areas then you’ll get HSPA+. You’ll also get LTE wherever T-Mobile has it.

      If you’re not in one of those areas, you’re better off using AT&T or a prepaid MVNO that uses AT&T’s network.

      My developer gets HSPA on tmobile on reframed towers at 1900 mhz here in Texas.
      Once tmobile launches LTE, it will work also without issues.
