HTC is already updating its One flagship to 4.4 KitKat, with the One max and One mini to follow. Many are wondering will the 2012 device get the KitKat treatment?
According to HTC Netherlands Twitter page, the HTC’s 2012 flagships (One X and/or One X+) will stuck in the latest update (4.2.2 with Sense 5).
If the tweet is translated, it will sounds like:
“We can confirm the HTC One X+ will remain on the current software version, Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5.”
That means you’ll not getting major OS update, again. No update for 4.3, 4.4, etc. But why? It should run smoothly because the processor is quad-core and they both has 1GB RAM. Of course, you can flash any unofficial 4.3 or 4.4 ROM, but nothing beats a software update that comes straight from HTC itself.
Or maybe this is only a mistake that come from official statement. We’ll keep you posted.
The unofficial KitKat build for Galaxy Note 3 have been leaked for Galaxy Note 3 (only for SM-N9005), courtesy of SamMobile.

This leaked ROM works only on Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005, which has Snapdragon 800 chipset with LTE support.
P.S.: If you live in Poland and/or other countries in Europe (especially near Poland) then you don’t need to download this, cause the update is now rolled out in Poland. Be sure to check the update center! If there’s no update in your country, then you should wait until the next coming days.
The original Android Jelly Bean build (4.1) was released in mid-2012, and now this Android version is the biggest mount of all Android versions, according to Android Developers Dashboard page.
As you can see from the picture above (Click the picture to enlarge), the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is powering 35.9% Android devices. The same Jelly Bean name but on the different version (4.2) is powering 15.4% Androids, and the Jelly Bean 4.3 powers the 7.8% of Android devices.
This means that Jelly Bean versions are the most used Android devices to date (growing from 54.5% in December to 59.1% in January).
Other versions included are Android Gingerbread (21.2%), Ice Cream Sandwich (16.9%), KitKat, which is the latest Android build (1.4%), Froyo (1.3%), and Honeycomb (0.1%).
