Remember the HTC Desire HD Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) fiasco? First we were told that the smartphone would be updated, then it wouldn’t, then it would, and then - finally – it most definitely would not. Sob.
But wait! Dry those tears. You can put Ice Cream Sandwich on your HTC Desire HD right now, thanks to the good folks at xda-developers. Huzzah!
Following a bit of a backlash, HTC explained that upgrading the Desire HD to Ice Cream Sandwich “would require re-partitioning device storage and overwriting user data in order to install this update. While technically advanced users might find this solution acceptable, the majority of customers would not.”
However, a post over on xda yells: “The Team blackout development team have now given HTC a large two fingered salute by releasing the first fully functional Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM with Sense 3.6.”
It’s ported from an HTC Incredible S build, and – better still – there are no known issues. Fully functioning Ice Cream Sandwich on your HTC Desire HD. Awesome-o.
