Australian HTC One Receives Android 4.4.2, OTA Captured
Yesterday we talked about how the European HTC One was finally receiving its Android 4.4.2 KitKat update once more. The device, which initially saw its official KitKat release back in January, later had the update pulled due to issues that certain users were facing. Now, it’s update time for the Australian variants of the One.
Today’s update bumps the Australian variants of the HTC One to software version 4.20.980.1. The firmware, which is currently being delivered in the form of a 308 MB incremental OTA update, is making its way to Optus, Telstra, and Vodafone devices.
Since the update is being rolled out in the form of a staged OTA, not every device will receive the update immediately. Luckily, XDA Senior Member deeevan has mirrored both the radio files and the incremental OTA update for Optus devices that haven’t yet received the update. A TWRP NANDroid image is also in the process of being created, and users may have certain luck in porting the Optus OTA over to other devices. However, it’s not recommended at this time to attempt applying the update directly on Telstra and Vodafone variants without modification.
You can get in on the discussion by visiting the Australian HTC One discussion thread. Those wishing to get in on the update action a bit early should head over to deevan’s mirror for the Optus variant of the device.

Intel showed its face at MWC 2015 to give the world a yearly update on their upcoming line of chipsets for mobile. While last year the company focused on gathering partnerships and strengthening up their services, architectures and production, now they are revamping their Atom line of SoCs for mobile with a new brand name and a distinctive category format much like that of their i3/i5/i7 line of personal computing processors. The new scheme will be naming the chips x3, x5...
