T-Mobile HTC One S gets Android 4.0.4, Sense 4.1 update

T-Mobile USA's HTC One S is receiving its biggest software update yet today, bringing the aluminum-clad handset up to Android 4.0.4 (from 4.0.3) and HTC Sense 4.1 (from 4.0), according to reports from the Android Central forums. It looks like Tmo's One S is getting the update that was originally pushed to European One S phones just over a month ago, meaning owners can look forward to improvements in phone performance, and a couple of new features like quick settings in the notification dropdown.

According to the changelog in the forums, the update also improves Bluetooth performance, and fixes Wifi connectivity issues that've been affecting some One S users since launch. The update file weighs in at 150MB, so you'll probably want to make sure you're on Wifi before taking the over-the-air package.

  • Another great day in Tmobile land. These next upcoming 90 days people will be hearing a lot about Tmobile.
  • How do you know?
  • He's full of shit. All he does is spout rumors on countless blogs. It's a shame Dick frequents the same websites I do.
  • It was a good T-Mobile week for me. Free HD and SD copy of the Avengers. Learning my S3 have fixed the USSD vulnerability. 4.0.3 to 4.0.4 for my (fathers) One S.
  • Says the dope who said boatloads of people would be leaving Verizon and AT&T "in the next 60 days"... 60 days ago, because of T-Mobile's new unlimited data. Says the dope who just last year was ranting and raving about how "great" Sprint was and how it was "the best carrier in carrier land", but then a few months later was saying the same BS of Verizon. Yeah, I TOTALLY believe you. -_-
  • Richard, remove yourself from the internet please. You were a huge trouble starter on AndroidandMe and now on AC you're going to make people furious with your ignorance and silly beliefs.
  • Correction: *Is* a huge trouble starter. He (unfortunately) hasn't left or been kicked off like he was over at Phandroid (4 times).
  • Damn I think I'm going to have to pick one of these up on T-Mobiles new Unlimited 4G plans

  • Love this update! I hated the black action bar. I like the option of having it as settings button and Kong press for multitask.
  • I don,t. see quick settings.Is it because im using nova launcher?
  • I don't see it either and am using it stock.
  • As far as I know, quick settings is not part of Sense 4.1. Quick settings is commonly added to custom roms based on Sense by porting over code from Sense 3.6.
  • its because phil said months ago, when he reviewed a custom rom built from the 4.0.4 sense 4.1 update, that it was included. which it wasnt and was in the custom rom. and for some odd reason everyone believed him over many xda users who were saying it was the rom and not sense 4.1. so now even tho the sense 4.1 update for some phones been out for months. people still expect the quick settings "sigh"
  • We need quick settings!
  • Thats bull. I know you can have them from the Play Store but I think HTC Sense is the only Android skin that doesn't have quick settings in the notification drop down.
  • Guys get settings expanded. its the best quick settings app. And its free!
