Sprint recently announced that the Android 4.4.2 update for its version of the HTC One is now available for customer initiated request ahead of the network rollout that’s scheduled to begin on Feb. 11. Several Sprint One owners are reporting that they’ve successfully downloaded the update, which brings with it a bump to Android 4.4.2 and HTC’s Sense 5.5 overlay, as well as security enhancements, Cloud Print Service support and more Bluetooth profiles for additional media interactions.
There were likely quite a few disappointed One owners after HTC’s recent announcement that it would miss its self-imposed end of January deadline for updating the U.S. carrier-branded versions of the One to KitKat. That delay turns out to be have been nearly non-existent for Sprint One users, though, and hopefully this is a sign that the updates for the other One models aren’t too far off.
In order to manually check for an update on the Sprint HTC One, grab your device and head into Settings > System updates > HTC software update > Check now. The update is a beefy one, weighing in at 535.78MB, but the time it takes to download and install it will seem worth it once you’re running Android 4.4.2 on your Sprint One before all of your One-toting friends.
