How to Update One S with Android 4.0.4 OTA
HTC One S users shouldn’t worry about the updating process as it is very simple. To get updated you need to connect to Wi Fi as the update file size is of 157 MB. On 3G or 4G LTE it will take time for the updates to be downloaded to your phone.
Don’t forget to check the Battery Life of your HTC One S : Ensure that you have enough battery (approx 95%) on your phone.
Once you are ready, you can request for the download of updates by going through Settings > About Phone > System Updates on your HTC One S phone. Tap on Check Now to connect to HTC servers. Once you get the update available notification, start the download of the updates on your device and once download, you just need to tap on Install button to apply the download software package.
This update is available in Germany and Denmark right now but we expect it to be rolling out all over the world over the next few weeks though.
