While the highly anticipated Jelly Bean 4.1 update has already started rolling out for the HTC One S, users now have the option to notch the update a step up compared to what they are currently getting via the official rollout.
The HTC One S as well as HTC One S special edition can now be upgraded to latest Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean with the help of custom ROM CM10.1. The HTC One S already comes with Android 4.0 ICS out of the box and sports a dual-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor alongside a 1GB RAM, and this specification is more than enough to run the new Jelly Bean 4.2.1.
While the version 4.2.1 comes with many custom tweaks and features, it should be noted here that this CM10.1 ROM for HTC One S is still under development and could contain a few bugs and issues, accordingly. However, all the issues will be fixed as the development progresses.
Before heading on to the original steps, it is important to remember that these steps are only for HTC One S and it is not advisable to apply the same on any other Android device. It is important to backup the data before following the steps.
To perform the steps, the device needs to have at least 80 percent battery left in it, and that the USB driver for HTC One S is already installed in the PC. It is also important to make sure that the USB debugging has been enabled with the bootloader unlocked. The device also needs to be rooted and have ClockworkMod Recovery installed.
