HTC-One-X-Final

It looks like HTC's One X is receiving another OTA update, this time weighing in at ~35MB and bringing the device's software build up to 1.29.401.7. The OTA appears to have begun rolling out today, but unfortunately no one is totally certain what the update accomplishes, as HTC has (as yet) neglected to release an official change log.

Though HTC is remaining quiet about the update, some XDA users have speculated that it fixes color temperature/RGB accuracy, and perhaps fixes some other minor issues. In other bad news, the Update.zip file – while it is available for download – is not flashable. Those interested can download the file at the link below, however.

Of course we'll be here to report on any confirmed details that may emerge regarding this update. In the meantime, check out the XDA thread linked below for the latest word from users.

    the download shows a version "1.28.401.9 CL56522 release-keys"

      The download shows 1.29.401.7 and lists 1.28.401.9, as I bets it's the FROM version since it's an incremental update.

      What you pasted, found in version.txt, is likely either what the script expects to be the version of your device for the update to succeed or HTC forgot to update it, but if you look at the file name on HTC's servers, you'll see the new 1.29 version in the name.

      I looked at the update script, and it expects the system to be one of the following for the update to go through:
      htc_europe/endeavoru/endeavoru:4.0.3/IML74K/56522.9:user/release-keys
      or
      htc_europe/endeavoru/endeavoru:4.0.3/IML74K/60260.7:user/release-keys

      I'm not sure which one 1.28 is, but I bet it's one of those 2.

    Do you reckon it fixes the screen banding issues found on the One X? I wanted to get one but my friend showed me how screen banding has become a huge problem on the One X and I'll wait for a fix now.

      Jeez, banding is still an issue on new phones? The SGS II has horrible banding, I would have thought they would have figured it out by now.

      have been using mine for two weeks.. no banding issue

    • chlo1ber

      Don't have banding either. What people don't realize is, that it's often the app itself that only offers 16bit colors.

    im running stock rom (rooted) so do i need to unroot and flash stock recovery to be able to update to 1.29

  • Abdulhafiz37

    Update 1.28.707.10 already fixed the screen banding issues and the problem on the notification bar.

    This also updates radio images and kernel.
    And apparently it attempts a battery fix:
    /system/bin/chownto /sys/htc/power_save_policy /data/data/com.android.browser

    Plus, a few apps got huge updates:
    - Rosie (apparently some graphics update)
    - MovieEditor (13mb, whoa!)
    - Many of the HTC apps (Contacts, Watch, and so on)
    - Browser
    - Idle Screens
    - GPSD, RILD, and WPA-Supplicant updates
    - Camera, EGL, Audio, GRAlloc, HWComposer libs updated (last two plus EGL might be fixing the remaining banding)
    - WiFi and BT modules updated (but almost all modules got some patches)
    - Laputa Engine, HWUI, HTC RIL, and some video codecs also updated
    - Secure CA certs updated

    That's all I can get without an actual device.
