The Update is rolling out! :laugh:

In Serbia & Croatia and other countries, for free k2ul.
You can follow the happening from here.
Usually HTC is updating free k2ul (with LTE) first. If all is fine, free k2u are next, together or followed by provider k2ul.
After that, cricket & boost get the update.

At least they did this way for the 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update.

Pictures: Look at this post
==================================================

You need to get back stock, if you are rooted and have custom recovery/rom:

S-On, you have to S-off your device and do the S-off guide
S-Off you can do from the beginning like told here.

==================================================


Old Post:
We don't know for sure if it will come, rumors say yes, HTC says nothing.
Ive put my rom on hold for now guys, looks like we have a big update coming our way in the next month or so, the update will include Jelly Bean 4.2.2 and HTC Sense 5

HTC One SV Android 4.2 & Sense 5 Update Appears Likely
I know this twitter post from football:
- https://twitter.com/LlabTooFeRstatus/325863860009566208
- https://twitter.com/phoonkrabb/status/346525372407504896

I hope (and believe) of course this will come, but its not confirmed officially.
And i don't think it will come before august/september. All before would be a real suprise cause even the update for HTC One isn't released officially. Then will follow OneX, OneX+...
But there are rumors that One S maybe don't get it (technical issues). That would be heavy for them.

Other news say, we get Android 4.2.2 without Sense 5:

HTC One X, One X+, Evo 4G LTE and Others Getting Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5 Upgrade

HTC Upgrade List, Who’s Getting Android 4.2.2 and Sense 5?


Here's a video about Android 4.2.2 & Sense 5. Its from HTC One, but features are almost the same (except some things like Zoe or so):


So let's start here a discussion thread about the update to Android 4.2.2 & Sense 5.

They will probably get it eventually via dev / mod roms, have you tried that CM10 rom for the boost one sv over on android forums ? I was thinking about trying the rom only on my phone, I know the kernel wont work as its for boost.

For sure. But it states the end of official lifetime.
Here in germany people always say "don't buy the One SV, buy the One S, cause the SV will get no updates". That news was a little bit funny for me :angel:

No, exactly because the kernel will not boot. But as far as i know, bkcokota is working on CM and i pushed him to simon's thread to have a look.

Guys, anyone has any info about 4.2.2 update for One SV? HTC ditched One S. So wondering if SV has the same fate...

Football is continue claiming that there will be an update.
A german "insider" is sure there will be nothing.
To make it clear: atm we don't know anything for sure!
But related to One S: it was canceled because of their different processors. Qualcomm does no longer support the S3 version. And before they only update the S4 and user are asking "why does he get an update and i not, we have both One S", the have canceled.
But this problem don't exist on our phone!
So let's hope and keep fingers crossed.

football's predictions proved right many times in the past, he must have really good connections. but it can always happen that HTC change it's mind all of the sudden...

Hope they get it out as it's a superb phone and maybe well get our own proper forum then also :fingers-crossed:

yeah, it's a great phone, i'm surprised that there are only few power users or developers that use it.

Most people go with the flagship phones or the cheaper (Desire X). Most time people complain about resolution, but when you used to 800x480 (like you and i from Desire S times) its not a problem i think.
But all in all i would say the most devs are working on the flagships.

SV is a great phone. i don't regret for a second that i bought it.
+ 1
And as i have heard, the HTC One mini will also have the same processor and 1 GB Ram. So also not a big alternative/difference in 4,3" phones. Better screen, but no sd card, so i'm staying with lovable One SV.

But lets come back on topic, please!

The One SV stands in between the One V and One S in terms of specs(hence it's name),and if the One S isnt getting an update,there is a high chance that the One SV won't get one
But we cannot miss the fact that it was launched after the One S so there is some hope for this device

The One mini will have the newer variant of the processor(in the Snapdragon 400 series) and 2 gigs of ram,it's the one that the HTC First has

    A german "leakster" (who always said One SV will stay on 4.1.2) confirmed today, that we will get 4.2.2/Sense 5.
    He is surprised about, but it was helpful that the specs are very similar to One mini and Desire 601.
    Now i'm sure, we will get it :D

    .....or develop them yourselves.

    :sly:

    I'm doing all I can for that. I'm not good with kernel and @simonsimons34 doesn't have much time. So development will roll out slowly :/
