Update 2: The blog post is back, and the update should be rolling out today!
Update: It sounds like the blog post announcing the update was published erroneously, and has since been pulled down. While that's definitely a bit of a disappointment, it does mean that the update should be headed out very soon. Just not today. Bummer.
AT&T just announced that its version of the HTC One X will be receiving an update to Android 4.1 starting today. Read More

HTC Sense 5 wallpapers, wallpapers, 18 gorgeous wallpapers! Who wants them? Do you want one? And you? Wallpapers for everybody!
Thanks to some quick thinking of an enterprising xda-developers forum member loan92, who used his charm and boyish good looks to distract HTC employees from his sneaky actions at an event in Italy, we have eighteen beautiful wallpapers the company bundled with the upcoming One flagship.
For your convenience, I've mirrored them to an imgur gallery where they can be viewed using the widget below. Read More
: A "nightly" is a bleeding edge release that is built on a daily basis, usually at night after a full day's worth of new code has been committed.
It could oftentimes be unstable and not properly tested, lacking any changelogs, but eventually evolving into alphas, betas, release candidates, and finally stable releases.
After rolling out CyanogenMod 10.1 nightly builds for three other devices yesterday (along with M2 builds), the CM dev community has kept the steam going into today - adding 7 new supported handsets to the latest version of Android's most popular custom ROM. Read More
Today is a big day for the CyanogenMod team. First, official nightlies are rolling out for three more devices: the LG Spectrum (vs920), HTC Incredible 4G (fireball), and the GSM Motorola RAZR (umts_spyder). Each of these dual-core phones can start enjoying CM 10.1 right away. For the uninitiated, CM 10.1 is based on stock Android 4.2.x. If you've decided to chuck those manufacturer skins and older versions of Android, head over to get.cm and start downloading. Read More
Update: After reaching out to HTC, we've confirmed that the statement on Facebook does in fact mean that the mentioned devices - the HTC One X, X+, S, and Butterfly - will be receiving Sense 5 in a future software update. Some features of Sense 5, though, will not be included, as they depend on specific hardware found in the HTC One.
There's good news out of Facebook tonight, at least if you don't intend to upgrade to HTC's latest and greatest hardware. Read More
We've got some good news for the open source development community today: HTC has released the kernel source files for the One SV, in 16 different varieties to account for slight differences between carriers and countries.
Although this may not be of immediate interest to consumers, as developers get their hands on the source, it should result in faster and more stable ROMs for the device in the future.
If you want to download the kernel source, which is around 100MB in size, to check it out for yourself, you can download it from the HTC Dev Center. Read More
Pay-as-you-go Sprint subsidiary Boost Mobile would like you to know that they've got LTE service. It's okay if you didn't - it's not as if they had any phones that could take advantage of the speedier standard. But that should be rectified in just a couple of weeks, when the HTC One SV And the ZTE Force (officially the "Boost Force by ZTE," because American carriers like to push around smaller OEMs) become available for purchase.

It's that time again, custom ROM fans. The oh-so-versatile Android Open Kang Project has released its fourth 4.2 build, this time updated to the latest 4.2.2 AOSP code. While feature additions beyond the ones added by Google themselves are few and far between, the list of supported devices for AOKP 4.2 has greatly expanded. Most of the phones in question come from Verizon's Motorola stable.
The full list of added phones includes the Motorola DROID 3, DROID 4, DROID Bionic, DROID RAZR (and by extension, the DROID RAZR MAXX),the international GSM Motorola RAZR (XT910), the HTC One XL, and Sprint's version of the Galaxy Nexus. Read More
If you own Sprint's seemingly long-forgotten HTC EVO Design 4G, the company has some fixes coming your way via a new OTA update that started rolling out today. While the Design 4G hasn't seen any update action in well over six months, it's nice to see The Now Network's continuing support for the somewhat aging handset.
The update brings a total of three minor enhancements/fixes, including hotspot improvements when on GSM networks, faster messaging application load times, and the inclusion of the Sprint Connection Optimizer. Read More
