Good news for all those using the HTC One S from T-Mobile.

Per reports, T-Mobile has started rolling out a minor update for all its subscribers using HTC’s One S that pushes a minor security enhancement to the device.

“Beginning February 19, the HTC One S devices will start receiving an update to software 2.35.531.12 710RD. It will be pushed to devices though an OTA or customers can choose to update earlier through settings,” T-Mobile states.

There are two ways to pull the new update. The first is the normal OTA (Over The Air) update where T-Mobile will push the update to the user’s device. The other is manual pull down where users, if not willing to wait for the OTA, can update immediately through the settings menu.

“The update for the HTC One S from T-Mobile will require you to adhere to the standard issue requirements, namely having a stock version of the Android operating system that is unrooted, a minimum amount of 50% battery life and of course, we would recommend you having performed a backup on the HTC One S prior just in case Murphy decides to drop in on the update process,” Ubergizmo states.

Moreover, this new update’s size is around 49MB, so it shouldn't take all that long to download and get installed. Users need to note that this is just a small update that only takes cares of the device’s security, and so to expect anything apart from that (like maybe a new Android version) is completely pointless.

Before going ahead with the update process, users will need to be sure that the device is running Android version 4.0.3 / Software number 1.53.531.76 710RD, 1.84.531.2 710RD, 2.35.531.7 710RD, or 2.35.531.10 710RD.

Users may also request the update from the update servers, even if they have not received the Over the Air (OTA) update. To do this, press the Application key from the Home screen. Next, touch Settings, then About Phone, Software Updates, and then Check Now.

Later the user will be offered on-screen prompts that they will need to follow. Once this is done, the phone will restart and update.
