Default Scam?

Okay, so I found this website which claims it can upgrade any phone to Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich. Obviously, it must be some sort of scam. <_< I'll let you all be the judge: [link redacted]

I've removed the link, just in case anyone falls for it, but 100% yes a scam. I wouldn't recommend anyone download or attempt anything connected to that site. The "download" links take you to some survey offers, the completion of which will apparently allow you to complete the download.

Please avoid at all costs.

I do appreciate you making me aware of such a phishing site/scam site, but to be honest, in my opinion, I would rather you didn't post links like that just because some people might fall for it.

Thanks El Presidente for removing it!

Upgrade any phone to Honeycomb? Would like to see them do that. Honeycomb is tablet only.
