HTC has finally pushing the Android 4.3 update for HTC One Developer Edition. This a major software update that bumps-the HTC One from build version 1.29.1540.17 Android 4.1.2 to the current firmware build 3.22.1540.1, a Android 4.3 upgrade. According to the official changelog, that this update will only bring an additional enhancements to the current HTC Sense 5 UI (user’s interface) wrapped in Android 4.3.
The hefty size of 564.04MB firmware packaged does not seem believably tells the whole story at all. The changelog might have been shortened on purposed and I’m sure that there might some major impact about this update, including camera enhancements, battery life improvements, squashing some bugs, and among other stuff this update may bring just like the Asian version of HTC One 4.3 received the other day.
If your HTC One developer edition haven’t received this 3.22.1540.1 update just simply do that little tap and touch thing from your phone’s Settings > About > Software updates > Check now. This update just already confirmed hitting US HTC One GPE with CID number ‘BS_US001’ .
Those might have rooted their HTC One and might facing issues to get this update, you can also restore back your phone to stock RUU. Just make sure and don’t forget to back-up all of your important files stored from the phone and copy it to your computer. You can use the RUU version 1.29.1540.3 then just accepts previous minor OTA updates 1.29.1540.16 and 1.29.1540.16 until it will prompts you to version OTA 3.22.1540.1.
For U.S carrier branded HTC One variants that has been already converted to developer edition, of-course with already re-locked bootloader and has changed the CID number to BS_US001, you can also use the stock RUU 1.29.1540.16. Then perform the same basic method on updating via OTA.
We will try to find the stock OTA firmware file or might as well the official RUU on this 3.22.1540.1 build, if HTC will release it and become available this coming few days. That’s it! Just make sure to spot anything new if you already received this update.
