I downloaded and installed the ICS with Sense 3.6 and have to say its a wonderful OS and my device runs smoother/faster and really like the extra gadgets/settings it now has. There however is one flaw and I cannot believe they changed this due to how user friendly it made the device before the change. In the sound volume settings you now only have 3 volume sliders. One is for music, video, games & other media the second is for ringtone & notifications and third alarms. This sucks cause I like having my riinger kinda low and notifications high. I dunno why they would goof that up but they did, lol.
Where dis u download it from? Did u receive an OTA update?
The sound settings all being one is stupid. How can someone miss this?
rjc1976, try Audio Manager. Has a very nice widget.
Ken, if you want ICS, you have to root and flash a custom ICS ROM (of which there are at least a half dozen now). I'm running Nils Business ICS 4.1 (which is based upon the 5/7/12 "leaked" firmware.)
Ken, I got it at AndroidPolice.com. Its a large file, 609mb. Its in a zip file. You dont and cant open the zip file, just rename it as it says in directions, plug your phone into your PC and intall the file on your SD card, unplug your phone, remove the battery then reinstall it, press down volume and while keeping it pressed press the power button til you see the white screen with three little droids on bottom and you will see it loading and itll ask you if you want to update and choose yes then youll see it updating and about 15-20 min later you will successfully be running ICS with Sense 3.6. I love it !
Hi @Rjc1976, it's great to hear you're enjoying ICS. I recommend letting our Development Team know
what you think about the changes made in the ICS software; we really
appreciate customer feedback. You can get
in touch with them at http://www.htcdev.com/contactus.
Where is our OTA ICS UPDATE? I, for one, have absolutely no desire to do the job of HTC/GOOGLE!
ENOUGH ALREADY, GIVE US OUR JUST-DESERTS!
Hi @JayDub. We're glad
you are excited for the ICS update! Thanks
for your patience while we work with our partners to get these out. You can check out our Update schedule here: http://www.htc.com/www/help/android4faq/?cid=android4blog
Please let us know if you have any other questions, or
Jeff, the animosity in jay's post relates to the fact that a lot of us bought these phones in November when we all saw the press release that said ICS would be out in early 2012. This fact was reiterated by my Verizon sales associate and was one of the key reasons I did not wait a few more weeks for the Galaxy Nexus.
Like Jay, I want the Android Ice Cream Sandwich OTA update. Its disconcerting that when we were sold a bill of goods to get us to buy the phone (the aforementioned Early 2012 release date) and then 6 months down the road, we are being told that we may still need to wait an additional one to two months (i.e. the June - July window in your blog link).
RIght now, I am of the belief that the update is mostly likely done, but Verizon is giving HTC a hard time about getting it released to the handsets. What I would like to see is HTC just make it available on their website.
There has to be a way to work the update into the HTC Dev Tools so that we can plug out phones in and have to update download remotely and update our handsets. My Rezound is my third Android phone and they have always been a disappointment when it came to software updates.
Its for that reason when my contract lapses, I will probably go with an iPhone 5. Apple knows how to treat their customers, keeps their updates on time, and does not care one bit what Verizon thinks.
Right on the money mj! I am so sick of using outdated software anddealing with tons of bloatware on these androids, and I do NOT want to root my phone! I simply want a USER-FRIENDLY PHONE, with great features, like the i-phpne, but better.
I agree about the i-phone 5. I could be a game changer...
We have been guinea pigs for Google and Android for too long. None of these phones has the
polish and overall qualith of the i-phone, and they are getting too large to be user friendly.
If one wants a larger screen, they should purchase a tablet! Holding a "brick" next to one'shead
does not make for a quality talking (YES, THESE ARE PHONES FIRST) experience!
My old LG flip-phone was 10 times better for oral communications that these so-called smart phones!
Give us a better experience, please!
My wife had an iPhone 4 and now has a 4s. When Apple released the 4s they came right out and said you can get iOS 5 the week after the 4s hits the shelf. The day it was to be available, I plugged my wife's iPhone in to download apps she bought and sure enough I was greeted by a message that iOS 5.1 was now available for her phone. This is a lesson that Verizon and HTC both need to learn. Keep your updates on and make them easy to receive. This is why Apple is the KING of the smartphone market and I will join my wife as a loyal disciple.
Did you have any trouble installing the leaked RUU and have you had any trouble since. I really want to install this, but I am afraid that I am going to brick my phone.
@ rjc1976, I want to install it but if something goes wrong is there a way to go back to the original software?
@QuietStrormzx9- As far as going back to the original OS, you would have to have it in a file like the ICS OS file. There is no option to revert or restore to the original software.
*If you do install the ICS, make sure you remove the battery in order to restart/boot your device when you have to restart it.
It's very easy to install the latest ICS, and it is sweet I might say.
Since your post is most recent may I ask where you downloaded from and when? I know there are a few versions created while they are trying to optimize with newer htc sense version (too bad its not the latest sense version that htc one has for example)
