How to Solve HTC One Capacitive Buttons Problem

The HTC One smartphone although looks very classy and contends well to be one of the best smartphones in the current smartphone market, it has got quite a lot of problems in itself.

One of the very common issue that several users have reported about, is the capacitive touch buttons which were not responding well. For most of them, it was until a several hits that the phone responded once.

The HTC One Issue

The capacitive touch buttons not responding to the touch. The issue worsens when a screen guard is used, and the touch response gets far lesser then.

Solve the HTC One Capacitive button issue

Solution 1

According to a few users who confirmed, the company HTC was sending out a software update which could help resolve the issue, but again this won’t work for everyone because the root cause doesn’t remain the same for everyone. The update that would arrive would be a 1.29.xxx.12 one with the xxx being your region code. We aren’t sure how widespread this update is as of now.

For example, 1.29.709.12(214.04MB) was an update sent to a user in Taiwan, which had the update notes including – “virtual button sensitivity adjusted”.

Solution 2

This one is just a trial to see if it really works and if the issue gets resolved quite a bit if the first one didn’t work out for you. You need to get a factory reset done on your HTC One. Here’s how you can do it.

1. Slide the Notifications panel open, and then tap Settings.
2. Tap Backup & reset.
3. Tap Reset phone.
4. If you also want to delete media and other data on HTC One, select Erase all data.
5. Tap OK

If at all these don’t work, the final option you would have to do is to take the advantage of your warranty, given through your seller or the carrier and get the device replaced or repaired.

Update HTC Desire X to Jelly Bean 4.1.1 Official Firmware

HTC Desire X has not been much popular but it still encloses a bunch of healthy specifications. As a matter of fact, the unpopularity of this phone is kind of meaningless.

But whatever the case maybe, I personally like this smartphone a lot; it brings you with a very good bunch of specifications. However, there is still one problem which you might face – due to the unpopularity; there are really less custom ROMs available for this Phone.

HTC Desire X

The HTC Desire X comes with Ice Cream Sandwich as a stock firmware and was previously not considered capable enough to handle Jelly Bean 4.1.1.

However, I guess HTC widened their horizons and realised that the HTC Desire X can really take hold of Jelly Bean 4.1.1, in fact, the specifications are just fit for the Jelly Bean OS.

Or the other way round, what I actually mean is that HTC has started to roll out the Jelly Bean 4.1.1 update for the HTC Desire X in a really few regions, maybe only a few thousand square meters.

And as a result, it is testing the patience of thousands of its users in other regions. But guess what? Yes you have got it right, XDA Developers have got their backs and have uploaded a Deodexed version of the Jelly Bean 4.1.1 stock ROM. It works just like the stock Jelly Bean 4.1.1 ROM with HTC Sense 4+. The only thing different thing in it is that it is pre-rooted.

Anyways, today we are going to acquaint you guys to the way by which you will be able to manually update and install the deodexed Jelly Bean 4.1.1 ROM on your HTC Desire X.

If you are used to this stuff then this might not be a problem for you, however, let me tell you that as it is a stock ROM, therefore the method will be a bit different as compared to the method used to install a typical custom ROM (due to ICS hboot).

Preparation

  • Make sure all the USB drivers for your HTC are installed (including HTC Sync)
  • Root your phone as well
  • Install TWRP recovery on your phone (not CWM)
  • Download the ROM and copy it to your SD card
  • Download ICShboot toolkit
  • Take a NanDroid backup

Steps to Install and Update to Jelly Bean 4.1.1

  1. Boot into recovery and perform a factory reset
  2. Install the ROM file now
  3. Press the Home button> click reboot and then choose BOOTLOADER
  4. Now you need to mod the hboot, when you are into the bootloader, go in the fastboot mode and connect your phone to your PC with USB
  5. Now open the ICShboot toolkit
  6. Now double click on Install boot.img
  7. Wait for the CMD to complete its command and then it will tell you to press any key to continue

Right after this, you will have Jelly Bean 4.1.1 installed on your Desire X. However, remember that in order to boot into the OS, you need to go back into the bootloader and then select the option “recovery”(always).
