While HTC has been on the hot plate in regards to Android updates, most notably with their lack of support for the HTC One S, there is a silver lining for those who have the HTC One predecessor in their repertoire. The update to 4.2.2 is being rolled out in Taiwan for the HTC One X+. For those who cannot wait for an official update to arrive to their devices, there is a system image and custom ROM also available.
