HTC Americas President Jason Mackenzie got HTC One owners' hopes up a few days ago when he tweeted that the long-awaited Android 4.3 update was scheduled to roll out within the span of a week. These updates are aimed at the developer edition of the HTC One along with HTC Ones distributed by Canadian carriers. While we're still waiting on the latter, the former has arrived.

There it is, straight from HTC. But we know many of you are skeptical, so here's additional evidence.

HTC1

As you can see above, the update rolls the HTC One Developer Edition up to version 3.22.1540.1, bumping Android up to 4.3 and delivering enhancements to Sense 5.

So there you go, get excited. As for other HTC One owners, we'll let you know as soon as further updates arrive.

    No news for HTC One EU.

    • Ricardo Neves

      Let the US have it first, since they were stuck with 4.1.2 all this time :)

      • Dominick White

        The verizon HTC one as been on 4.2

        • Justin W

          And that was also released some 6 months after every other One, so it should rightfully be on a newer software version.

  • PhoenixPath

    Is there an RUU for 1.29.1540.17?

  • epicmau5time

    Wonder if Samsung will ship it's 4.3 for the s4 at the same time it does for all its legacy devices.

  • IwfEP247

    YUP still on 4.1.2 thanks T-Mobile !

    • remister

      It's gonna be another long wait for both of us. Time to tweet Tmobile to hopefully give a timeframe also.

    • Simon Belmont

      My guess is we'll see it next month. Perhaps, ironically, right after the KitKat unveiling.

      From the tweets, it sounds like it's not too far off, but you never now. Carriers can be fickle.

    • Chris

      If Verizon get's it before you do, then you know there is an issue.

    • PhoenixPath

      Just converted mine to Developer Edition today....got tired of waiting for T-Mob.

      • http://dualshockers.com Joel Taveras

        My converted One (which I gave to my dad) got the OTA and now his data doesn't work. How is yours holding up?

        • PhoenixPath

          Mine's working fine. Have you tried flashing the latest radio available for your carrier's device? I did not need to do that, but I saw that there were plenty of others who, for whatever reason, did.

          I've also got Xposed and the Sense 5 toolbox from ARHD running on the OTA...and they work great.

          (I was also able to pull the gallery and clock from 4.3 GPe so I could have a half-way decent alarm clock/stopwatch and access my picasa albums. This required pushing them to /system/app and wiping cache/dalvik.)

      • Robert Boluyt

        I've been mulling converting my TMO One to a GPe or DevE, but haven't found a good guide I've been comfortable following yet.

    • Kpennett

      This Update HAS NOTHING TO DO W T-Mobile, It's AN HTC/Google Update, If you bough this Phone from T-Mo, Then you Don't Have the Developer edition, So, Why cry at T-Mo???

      • Weston

        Because moron. T-Mo slows down the updates. Because T-Mo and the other carriers think they have to take their time testing the phone on their network and adding their own customization and applications to it. It is T-Mobile's fault. T-Mo, has the update right now and could update the phone but they are choosing not to. Carriers control the updates.

  • Kpennett

    So, Anyone Else Want to Know WTF the "N" Icon on the status bar is all about?
    Already Another thing I DO NOT LIKE Is that the "Speak" App Automatically Starts when in Car Mode.

    • TY

      NFC.

      • Kpennett

        TY, I Should have Guessed that, But It wasn't there Prior & I didn't turn it On...

  • Adam Goldberg

    EVO LTE WHERES MY UPDATE TO SENSE 5???

    • Weston

      Ask Sprint.

      • Adam Goldberg

        I would but I can't put up with Sprint, Lord of the Vague any longer. lol.

  • JLS_Indy

    Received 4.3 update on my US HTC One 32 GB non carrier model today. Nice clean install. Like all the new features.

    • bob

    • Damian Soto

      What phone company do you have?

  • Damian Soto

    So do phone companies have to do with the releasing of the update?

  • Jerrick
