I haven't noticed that yet.
Yes, I had the same issue but ... only one time after the update.
Got the 4.2.2 update here. On T-Mobile, HTC One X unbranded and unlocked, phone originally from Carphone Warehouse. Phone looks quite different and I think I like it so far, set up Blinkfeed, but not sure if I'll take to it.
I've also noticed that holding down the back button whilst in the standard Internet explorer doesn't bring up the history unless you've just opened a new tab
I've also experienced this problem. Finally bit the bullet last night and did a phone reset (Settings > Backup & reset > Reset phone). It gives you the option to keep your music, pictures and other user data or erase all data. I kept my pictures and music and, apart from the hassle of having having to reinstall my apps, it seems to have done the trick as now everything stays where I left it when I turn the phone off/on.
This may have been an unnecessarily extreme step to take but it worked for me.
MAKE SURE YOU DO A BACKUP FIRST!!!!!
From what i have seen of the HTC One it seems like everything is there on the OneX except of course the hardware differences.
Blinkfeed is there if you want it or you can keep your screens as they are.
Mine all updated without any problems or fuss & believe it or not i never had to do a factory reset either. ( mus be pretty lucky from some of the horror stories i have heard about updates as this is the 3rd in a row that has gone faultlessly ).
The whole system seems to run quicker than before & dare i say the battery life seems slightly better too.
After using it for a few days i can say it is growing on me
Are these apps uninstalled or did just disappear their icon on the home screens?
If just disappear their icon, these apps might be apps which were moved from 'Phone storage' to 'USB storage app' (I think this means the former internal SD card). The icons of these apps might not be mounted while the phone reboots.
Might be worth to try before you perform a factory reset : Go to Settings, Apps and move these apps in question back to 'Phone storage'.
Have been using the BlinkFeed home screen version since I installed in an effort to get used to it. I have to say that battery life for me is far worse. Losing up to 40% overnight yet it all seems to sleep.
Can't quite figure out what is doing it and causing such a drain but I haven't installed anything new since the software update.
Just noticed that the predictive text suggests a new word after the spacebar has been tapped on more commonly used words. I like that.
After a day the battery life has improved ... the same as before the update or slightly better.
Actions by Google Play service might have taken a lot off the battery, but it's just a guess
Are you still having this issue? If so, go into security and make sure you have the device set up to require the passcode immediately when you lock the phone. It's possible that somehow it changed to only locking after a certain period of time.
It probably just needed some time to get adjusted to the new software. Glad to hear your battery life got better!
Yeah, guess we Yanks are left out...
Being an American isn't always the greatest thing...
For those with a rooted HTC One XL (or the at&t branded one x) [aka the evita], a leak of sense 5 and android 4.2.2 is being worked on by the custom ROM community.
For those of you that aren't rooted but are waiting for the XL to be confirmed that it's gonna get sense 5, since this was taken from an OTA, it means that there exists software for our devices to bring them up to Sense 5 and 4.2.2
anyone know of a root methid for stock HTC ONE XL att JB 4.1.1 3.18?
I did it with this ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1952426 ) works great. running this ROM ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2423735 ) I suggest you go to this thread ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1541&order=desc ) I'm running my phone on T-Mobile and getting LTE speeds.
has anyone on T-Mobile UK HAD an update for the HOX?
No idea, but I've got an Orange branded handset and I'm still waiting too. I'm expecting the update to arrive in about December (not sure which year though) based on Orange's past performance.
Same here, come on Orange!
Orange/EE are to busy putting that berk Kevin Bacon on my TV Screen every other minute to be bothered about updating their software. Expect it by next Julember.
Mine's with Three I emailed them and they have replied telling me that they do not have the update at the moment and that they are talking to HTC at the moment. So it looks like it won't be done before Xmas!! If I have my phone unlocked will I be able to get it separately?
Even unlocked, you'd still need to wait for 3 to give you the update.
Yeah, I bet he doesn't have to wait this long for his updates!
Well I sent Orange a message via Twitter asking when they were releasing the update and in response they sent me the name of (but not a link to) this article. Still no idea if and / or when they're releasing the update then.
According to the Sense 5 discussion thread on XDA Developers HTC are testing a new update for the One X which will take it to Sense 5.5 (still Android 4.2.2 though) so if that comes out us poor saps on Orange will probably be getting that by Easter 2017.
I am never getting a branded handset again. My next will be a Nexus.
Just checked after this update a few weeks ago and had 2 small updates
1 for camera-fixes crashes
1 for sense 5-fixes shortcuts after restart
Still nothing on Orange branded One X in the UK. They're still denying all knowledge of the update on Twitter. Bloody useless.
Me too, SIM-free unbranded phone....
And me unbranded. Have noted the camera app opens a lot quicker than it did. Could just be a placebo effect mind.
