Android 4.4.2 KitKat update now available for the HTC One

In a past report, we came across the Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) update roadmap for the HTC One. According to the leaked roadmap, the update would be rolling out to the Taiwanese phone maker’s flagship in late January or mid-February. It look like the leaked roadmap was legit, as HTC One owners across Europe are starting to get the update.

According to PhoneArena, “The latest 4.19.401.8 firmware comes at the surprisingly slim 308.24 MB package, compared to some previous Android editions. Besides bringing KitKat, the update will patch some security vulnerabilities, introduce cloud printing, extra Bluetooth profiles, and, sadly, the Adobe Flash player toggle will be gone from the browser, so you'll probably have to sideload it to experience Flash content.”

Note that not all HTC Ones will get the update at the same time as others. Normally, SIM-free versions of the handset will get the update before handsets from network operators. Carriers have to test the update with their own apps, before rolling out the update to their customers.
