Google recently announced the next version of Android, 4.1 Jelly Bean, at their Google I/O 2012 conference in San Francisco.
The Android maker also announced that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS would initially roll out for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S and Motorola Xoom devices sometime in mid-July.
However, the Android developers have already started working on porting the unofficial Jelly Bean ROMs on Nexus devices and now it has come to HTC One X too.
Shortly after news surfaced online about the leaked Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROMs for the Verizon Wireless variant of Galaxy Nexus (both LTE and GSM), the Android developer community released a bootable Jelly Bean ROM for HTC's flagship smartphone, the One X. The news came from XDA Developers in the form of a thread in which a developer who goes by the name 'tgascoigne' released his port of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the One X.
Hence, if you have HTC One X handset, you can now run it on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. However, this ROM leak is not 100 percent functional. It has bugs related to Wi-Fi, audio, camera and more. Voice Search and Google Now are one of the best features of Jelly Bean for a device like HTC One X. The new OS also brings a faster, smoother user interface, enabled by "Project Butter."
However, remembering that downloading the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM for the HTC One X handset will wipe the data of the handset. Hence, do not forget to take a full backup before you proceed to flash it on your device.
Details and a download link for the ROM can be found over here, on the official thread on XDA.
