Android 4.2.2 for HTC One – Vodafone update pending

Vodafone Android

Holding true to recent form Vodafone has continued to be early to users with OS updates on their current line of phones. While it’s not yet being pushed out, the much anticipated update to Android 4.2.2 is complete for the HTC One and OTA testing is underway for Vodafone clients. The update will add a host of new functions to the device including battery percentage displayed in the status bar and the ability to change home button actions.

Also cited in the blog post is the Galaxy Nexus is set for an update to 4.2.1 in the coming months, unfortunately Samsung have not given Vodafone a date to expect this software yet.

Have you got an HTC One with Vodafone? Looking forward to the update? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

    Looks like no one’s with VodaFail? What about Telstra can’t they get it together

  • Michaela O’Leary

    It’ll drop soon, because I’m leaving the country ;)

  • Marco

    really! So ppl who bought unbranded HTC ONE don’t get the update 1st only ppl who bought phone off vodafail. I call this bull bc vodafail are just trying to lure ppl on there crap network.

    • jacko

      im with vodafone and there lot better then craptus

    • SakuRedux

      Yes, because Vodafone are totally the reason the update isn’t out for unbranded phones yet, because they have so much to gain from that.
      Besides, Vodafone have a good track record of releasing updates as soon as possible.

  • Jason

    haha “vodafail”? well let’s look at what’s happened over the last few weeks; they’ve fixed their network & activated 4G (which I have now as an existing customer), VF have a larger spectrum than all other AU networks & now HD Voice calls for free – works on 2,3 & 4G (htc one, iphone, galaxy s4 etc)
    can’t wait for the update, even though the OS is fine right now :)

      I agree with a number of points but have some clarifications :
      They’ve done well over the last couple of weeks and while they’re increasing their coverage, I probably wouldn’t go so far as to say they’ve ‘Fixed’ their network, but it does continue to improve.

      The HD Voice Calls acually don’t work on 4G, we don’t have VOLTE(Voice over LTE) here just yet.

      But I agree overall, Vodafone as a whole is certainly making great strides towards becoming a much improved player in the Australian Mobile Phone industry.

  • Shane

    Still waiting on 4g, but I agree. The network especially in the last week or so has been incredibly fast and reliable. Amazing they are getting this update so early since I haven’t even heard about it on American sites. Now happy I didn’t jump ship from Vodafone when I got my HTC One.

  • Ian

    If I flash the stock HTC image to my Telstra HTC One would I get OTA updates from HTC?

      Hi Adi,

      You’re all good. The rollout has not yet begun, according to the Vodafone website the rollout of Android 4.2.2 is in a state of ‘Testing complete, review underway.’ But rest assured as long as you have a data connection the HTC One will receive a notification to update as soon as HTC begin pushing the update to Vodafone Australia branded handsets.

      • Adi

        MEANS HOW MUCH TIME IT WILL TAKE TO ROLLOUT. DO U HAVE ANY IDEA.???
        HOW MANY DAYS???
        IF IT IS REVIEW UNDERWAY..WHAT IT MEAN???

      • http://ausdroid.net/ Daniel Tyson

        We don’t have any direct way of finding this information out. The review could take a couple of days, to a few weeks, it depends on if there are issues found during testing.

        I would recommend you contact Vodafone directly to see if they have an idea. They are on Twitter : @vodafoneAU or you can jump on their webpage to see if they have a contact email address for Tech Support.

        No need to shout. :)

      • Sachin

        I m not shouting u. . M just asking u ok. U just take a manner from ur mind how to give the answer if anyone ask u about update.. How dare u to say m shouting.. BD

      • Vinny

        I think Daniel here has been more than courteous in giving you the answer buddy!!!! and you need to learn some manners for sure.

      • http://ausdroid.net/ Daniel Tyson

        Sachin,
        My reference to shouting was your reply was delivered in all CAPS, which on the internet is a way to convey shouting.

        As to an update I believe I have given you the best possible answer we have, in a courteous manner as well as giving you avenues to pursue Vodafone as to the availability of the update.

      • gill

        such a rude perso you are Sachin ,,, go back to school and learn to talk and behave ,, they are not responsible people ok

  • Adi

  • Adi

    can u plz sugget me Daniel sir???

    • http://ausdroid.net/ Daniel Tyson

      Unfortunately they’re not offering the update via alternative methods at this stage and will only allow the update to progress once the Vodafone servers are updated.

      This means that even if you are not using Vodafone as a carrier, you will still have to wait for the update – as well as pay any costs for the data usage when it’s finally made available.

      • Adi

        daniel means f i use vodafone network than update should be come.???
        actually now m using airtel in my htc one..u mean i will have to use vodafone network than that is possible to come???Adi

      • http://ausdroid.net/ Daniel Tyson

        The update will not come until Vodafone let HTC push it, no matter what network you’re on.

        You Still have to wait for the update. there is no getting around that unless you want to install unsupported software.

  • Adi

    Dear Daniel Tyson u got any current news about the rollout of update by vodafone.??

    • http://ausdroid.net/ Daniel Tyson
