i can't remember where i read it, but i think it's going to be changed to a swipe up motion from the home button (similar to that of the nexus 4 motion).
You swipe up from the home button for Google Now in 4.2.2
Not that bizarre, it was that way with the One X, One S, One SV, One XL etc..
Long pressing the back button kills the foreground app (if you have that feature enabled) so there would be conflicts.
Yeah I don't like it either but I don't see them changing that.I'm using CM10.1 (Android 4.2.2) and using the home button in lieu of onscreen buttons is so nice. Although I don't like how on my tablet, swiping down from the left of the status bar opens the notification drawer while from the right opens the toggles. why not unify them?
Its rolling out to .401 WWE devices now. It will depend whether yours is unbranded / carrier subsidised.Any ideas when this will be available on HTCOne devices in the UK?
