already confirmed their impressive new HTC One series of smartphone will receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean soon, but not quite yet. Today an update has been confirmed for the folks enjoying the HTC One S and it's bringing the handset to Android 4.0.4 and a new and improved Sense 4.1 UI. Head on past the break for full details.

HTC's Sense service to back up your phone's data, it might as well be. The HTCSense.com website is receiving a major overhaul soon, and aparently it's big enough that they need to scrap just about everything they've built up so far. That means that on April 30th, all the personal data that HTC has saved for backups and emergencies will be wiped clean.
HTC One X) leaked, an industrious group of devs have released a series of ROMs based on the leaked code. The Virtuous S4X series of ROMs isn't the first family of custom ROMs to bring Ice Cream Sandwich to HTC's devices, but it is the first to bring the ubiquitous Sense along for the ride in its fourth incarnation. At present only the GSM version of the HTC EVO 3D and the HTC Sensation are supported, and the ROMs themselves are in beta form and their first release at that - don't expect daily driver performance. Work from the developers includes resizing and recalibrating ROMs to work on qHD (960x540) screens, smaller both physically virtually tan the HTC One X's 720p panel. In the best tradition of custom ROMs, they've also made a few speedy tweaks and removed bloatware that isn't strictly necessary. HTC has committed to bringing Ice Cream Sandwich (and probably Sense 4.0) to both the EVO 3D and the Sensation, but it might be months before the updates materialize. If you can't wait, download the files, reboot into a custom recovery and get crackin'. Both will require a full wipe (even from a stock ROM) so make sure and back up your data with Nandroid. It'll still be a few weeks at the very least before the HTC One X is released, so it'll be a while before the developers can upgrade their source files.

HTC One's backwards compatibility, what with it's three capacitive navigation buttons and lack of a menu button, check this out. Paul "Modaco" O'Brien has been playing around with the software headed for the HTC One X, One S and One V, and found out how HTC's UI designers have gotten around this limitation: basically, a virtual navigation area springs up on the screen when needed, doubling down on both virtual and capacitive buttons.
