That hotly anticipated Android 4.2.2 update for the AT&T HTC One was approved for distribution yesterday, but now it's reportedly hitting devices. Users on XDA report that a small 16MB update is showing up first, then sometime later, the big 537MB update to Android 4.2.2 appears.

2014-01-29 17_19_22-HTC One X Sense 5 _ Software Updates _ HTC, U.S.

This update will add most of the Sense 5 features from the current flagship HTC One, but any features that rely on hardware like the Ultrapixel camera aren't included. HTC has updated the info page to include the One X (it already listed the X+) – it looks like there won't be any difference in the feature set.

Some users are reporting that after the smaller OTA shows up, setting the clock ahead a day can prompt the 537MB update file to present itself. We'll update if we get any more info on that.

    4.2.2? Really?

      It was announced a while ago that the One X and One X+ would get this update and no more. Why are you surprised now?

        Maybe he's just expressing disappointment.

        I'm disappointed. Samsung flagships like GT-I9100 GS2, Note, etc. got updates that put HTC's recent record to shame.

      HTC makes Sense. But when it is 4.2.2 starting Feb 2014, HTC makes no sense.

    I know that when Canadians Galaxy Nexii got 4.1 they had to update them from 4.0.1 to 4.0.2 before they could push 4.1.1 so I guess this is like that.

    If I remember correctly the HTC Desire 600 and above have HTC Zoe even though they run on much weaker hardware that the One X/X+
