Maybe the music you got is not DRM protected, as more and more stores are moving towards plain vanilla mp3's again. Should have much more problems with video purchases, especially on streaming video services and digital rentals.

And Samsung is exactly the same as the other companies which refuses to update their devices even though it has been proven that it is possible.
Just seems to be a way to confirm purchase of product; doesn't seem to interfere with being rooted.Your application does not query the licensing server directly, but instead calls the Google Play client over remote IPC to initiate a license request. In the license request:
- Your application provides: its package name, a nonce that is later used to validate any response from the server, and a callback over which the response can be returned asynchronously.
- The Google Play client collects the necessary information about the user and the device, such as the device's primary Google account username, IMSI, and other information. It then sends the license check request to the server on behalf of your application.
- The Google Play server evaluates the request using all available information, attempting to establish the user's identity to a sufficient level of confidence. The server then checks the user identity against purchase records for your application and returns a license response, which the Google Play client returns to your application over the IPC callback.
You can choose when, and how often, you want your application to check its license and you have full control over how it handles the response, verifies the signed response data, and enforces access controls.
Is there an official HTC update? HTC has a reputation for slow to non-existent updates. Samsung too for that matter. However sometimes carriers like to block updates as well. Nexus devices are okay if you don't mind being forced to the cloud if you want more space.
to OP: ive been on 4.1 for months now, stable. rooting your phone is easy and while someone said there is negatives to it in this thread im not even sure those are really true, yet ive never tried downloading music from the play store but who has??
either way ill be on 4.2 probably within a month. rooting is the way to go and the CM or AOKP team is always there to back you up.

If Google controlled the OS updates like Apple does with iOS, we wouldn't have this problem.
I just got JB on my Galaxy Nexus about a month ago, and it's been available since July when Google released the source to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Verizon had been holding the update back for "testing" (a new DROID just came out around that time so take that how you want).
Unless you root your phone, you will have to wait for the manufacturer to release Android updates. HTC usually doesn't take this long, but like Motorola, they are slow because they need to incorporate their silly UI onto the product from Google. HTC uses Sense, which is probably delaying your update. If you want the updates quicker, your best best is to have a Google branded phone.
I also have a unlocked/rooted GNex and am using mmuzzy's 4.2 It's stable and beautiful.
Why are you expecting this so soon?. My nexus 7 only for jelly bean last week and this is google's own tablet. Also I don't see much reason to want it. It's not very stable in it's current release and the features it brings (swipe keyboard, photosphere) being the big 2 talking points, are downloadable in app form. This has not been one of the best releases for Android.
Us HTC One X users are still waiting for 4.1 which brings Project Butter and more battery improvements (apparently). I've been waiting for them to fix the battery issues (its so crap) for a while now and I hoped that 4.1 would have been released by now.
I have the unlocked international HTC One X from Amazon. Please update
Why not flash a custom rom then? :S There are some great 4.1.2 roms out on XDA. I know you need an unlocked bootloader and rooted phone, but imo you are not getting the full potential of your phone if you not doing this. Just my opinion though..
I know it kinda defeats the point of OTA updates, but the 1st thing I do when I get a new phone is root/unlock and flash custom recovery/rom. It just adds to the experience of android.
Voids warranty. I don't dare, besides, it is a lot of hassle.
Think link above me cleared it up nicely.
The "a lot of hassle" isn't really an excuse either, most phones now have a 1 click unlock/root application. You can pretty much root/unlock any phone in 10 mins tops now-a-days.

My HTC One X was purchased from a Taiwanese store. I see the SINA Weibo app on it, and plus when the phone was restored to factory, the default language was Chinese. Makes me think that OK - I obviously have the International version. Furthermore it's the quadcore world edition.
HTC announced a little while back that they released the 4.1 Jellybean update, but first to International devices. So why then, hasn't my HTC One X received any sign of an update? The last one I got was merely just an incremental update to ICS(4.0.4). I also noticed that, for me to even get the 4.0.4 update, I had to connect the phone to Wi-Fi(otherwise the phone would report "there are no new updates). Interesting, so the carrier blocks HTC's update server?
I've been through the whole rooting and ROM flashing thing. XDA was my home page for the longest time. I used to own a Galaxy Nexus and just about every few days I was trying different ROMs and it was exciting to try and see what each had to offer. But I soon spotted some downsides - first, you'd have these weird bugs here and there(mundane things like the weather app not working properly, and yes I tried clearing the data). Or my Galaxy Nexus would lock up entirely, forcing me to pull the battery(yes I researched this and some phones are sensitive to the default voltages set, luck of the draw). Or the volume would be low, despite cranking it up all the way to max and even loading in Volume+.
In the end, the novelty and fun of trying new ROMs got a little tiresome, especially during times when the phone would outright freeze up. I wanted a reliable device.

More to add. Your HTC CID must be on this list in order for you to be eligible for JellyBean.
If you're not on the list, then you aren't gonna get it. Use the app CID Getter to determine your phone's CID:
My HTC One X was HTC_622. I looked at the list and I see HTC_621 on the list -_-
That explains why I haven't gotten the JellyBean update. And lord only knows if and when I'll ever see it.
So it's December and still no Jelly Bean.
That's it, I will do everything in my might to switch to a S3.
This is absolute crap service.
And no, they have not released it yet. My provider doesn't even know about it. All the employee could say was: It has been delayed.
