HTC One Android 4.2.2 update sticks to Sense 5.0, brings new features
The HTC One is a flagship phone of 2013 stuck on an OS released back in 2012, which has understandably upset many. Worry not, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is almost here (thanks to this developer, it is here!), and it brings new features with it.
In case you’re the lucky owner of a beautiful HTC One, we have some good news for you. Developers at XDA Forums have released the first custom ROMs based on HTC’s unreleased Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and it brings along with it new goodies. To start with, your HTC One is updated to the latest stable version of Android OS, and we all know what that means. Daydream (a screensaver of sorts), Quick Toggles and PhotoSphere are just some of the exciting new features with the latest (and soon to be succeeded by Android 4.3) Jelly Bean flavor.
At present, there are two custom ROMs which offer Android 4.2.2 to you, both based on Sense 5 (for stock lovers). While Sense hasn’t changed much, small fixes and tweaks here and there are just waiting to be explored. Head over to the links posted below and have a look at it for yourselves:
