Telstra today announced on their community forum something that many HTC One XL owners have been painfully waiting for. The Jelly Bean update was approved earlier today (Monday 24th December). Deployment is also scheduled to begin today at 4PM, so keep checking your phone for an update, or use our forced OTA update guide.
Other countries have already seen the update rolled out. Containing Jelly Bean 4.1.1 and HTC’s Sense 4+, it weighs in around 650MB, so it’s strongly advisable to download the update on Wifi.
Update: The One XL OTA update
will actually begin pushing out at 9PM is rolling out as we speak.
Telstra also posted an update on another of their handsets. In what is quickly becoming comical, or a farce, depending on which way you see it, Telstra have once again delayed the Samsung Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean update due to a “new and potentially serious” issue being discovered. Further investigations into the issue are on hold until the new year, so don’t expect to hear any more on the update until mid-January.
