While Verizon Wireless has yet to roll out an official Ice Cream Sandwich update for HTC Rezound smartphone, it seems like folks over at Android Police were pretty fast and lucky enough to get the file. However, HTC recently announced that the official upgrade will be arriving soon, but I suspect, still many of you out there are waiting to find out if the device will even get the ICS update earlier than expected.
Customers who own the HTC Rezound can now get the official Android 4.0.3 ICS update, while it is also worth mentioning this will update the Smartphone’s HTC Sense UI to version 3.6 rather than 4.0 (exactly like HTC Vivid), as well as it has updated radios that should help with signal, and improve battery life.
Of course this is not the final release what is expected to arrive when Verizon gives it ado. However, for those, who are worried about losing root access, there is a completely stock version, and a pre-rooted version, so you’ll have to decide what you want. Do remember, the rooted version does not have the new radios. You can also try OTA Rootkeeper from the Play Store if they’d like to keep root, and try the stock versions with the new radio.
Directions and download files:
– Download file, rename it to “PH98IMG.zip” (no quotes)
– Place the renamed file onto the root of the SD Card (not in a file)
– Power down your device
– Reboot into the bootloader by holding VOL DOWN + Power
– The flashing process should begin automatically
Making the things all clear let the device reboot the rest of the task. After complete the upgrade, you are here to enjoy the latest tasty and buttery smooth Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade with your device. Good luck 😉
