Oh right, sounds ok then. Could you provide me with a link to the official software please? And is there somewhere that provides a step by step idiots guide on how I install it.

I am not sure anyone's opinion matters here. I would probably say that one waits no more than a week as it clearly cannot be technical glitches. Any more and it might be for other reasons as mentioned on this long thread. Otherwise you are free to go from the moment you can get hold of a RUU. Tell you what, I used the RUU within the hour that Football uploaded it. I had backed up some necessary bits knowing that the RUU would be around.

So there is no such thing as literally or rationally. Either you do or you don't or for branded devices, you can't.

Go by the experiences of the guys that have flashed the new RUU and how better the HOX has got from then on. If its going to be a better device and if you can backup and restore your settings, then what's stopping anyone really? Your call!

I had never installed a ruu, but it's something that sounds far worse when written in text than when you actually do it. It's as easy as installing software on to a pc. You just turn on USB debugging in settings/developer opinions, connect your phone to a pc, then click on the ruu icon and follow the instructions, ie click "next" a couple of times, then just let it work its magic and in five mins you are updated!

Simple guide to RUU install
I used the RUU to update. I'm not at all technically competent but found it so easy. Only just moved over from the simplicity of iPhone and never dared trying to jailbreak that. Was a bit worried about doing it as there were a few things I had to google to find out how to do.

I must say its no exaggeration that this update is superb (the only thing I can't comment on is battery life yet) Having also owned a Galaxy s3 my HTC one X felt sluggish at times in comparison but this is all a thing of the past. There is no doubt that it reflects the new Quadrant scores. This has done to the phone what I expected Jelly Bean to do.Now seems just as fast and responsive as my iPhone 4s but with the added functionality of android so I'm well chuffed.

Guide for those less technical people like me

1. Download the RUU (see a Dropbox link on the second post from this page of forum http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1840956). Save it to anywhere on your computer that is convenient for you to find.
2. Power off the handset
3. Power it back on by holding the power button and (Volume down) button at the same time. The 3 buttons below the screen will flash to indicate you are doing it correctly
4. You now enter a boot menu and if you push the volume button down you will highlight Fastboot
5. Now press the power button to select this option. You will then be presented with some further options but don't worry about selecting any of these.
6. Plug in the USB and connect phone to PC, it should now say Fastboot via USB in the list of information. (No need to try and highlight this but a sign it's all is good)
7. Run the file on your computer and you will be presented with the official software, it will check that you have over a third of battery power and that you want to upgrade the firmware.

You won't lose contact details, music, photos etc but I did lose text messages and my apps. Some people have mentioned you can use save and restore programs from the Playstore. I just went back to my apps in Playstore and just installed from there. Took about 15 minutes to complete the process of the RUU install listed above and then an hour of installing my 90 apps/ organising folders and widgets etc but was well worth it.

It's an official piece of software you are running so it is a proper installer and keeps you fully informed of progress, beforehand I was really worried about bricking my phone but the only way you could risk that is if your battery ran out during install so do make sure you have adequate charge.

Would have posted in the appropriate thread but strange noob intolerance here forces me to stay out of the official thread where the developer posts.

Anyway, was wondering if anyone who has gotten the Update to 4.0.4 has tried BubbleUPnP? I'm curious if the wifi disconnect (yet still indicate connection) after sleep with BubbleUPnP is still an issue?

Thanks very much for taking the time to write this guide, its just what I was looking for. I'll give it a try when I get home from work. Just one more question...if this is the official software, why doesn't everyone do this and why do HTC bother with OTA updates? Surely it would be easier for HTC to send out the update this way???? Or am I missing something?
