Default ICS Anticipation/Discussion Thread

I played around with a Honeycomb tablet yesterday and it was freaking amazing, now I'm super pumped to see how ICS turns out

It releases in 2 days, how long do you think it'll take before there's an Evo 3d port? It even makes me miss my Nexus S a bit :O

I'll wager 2-3 months after Google announces it.

BTW, what about Honeycomb did you like?

-edit-
moving this out of the root forum, since it's not root-specific.

Well I put it root because I was talking about a ICS-based ROM on the 3vo, not waiting for official support lol

It won't be out in 2 days. The announcement of it was to take place Oct 11th but they have already announced thats been pushed back. ICS won't be out till late Oct/early Nov and the Evo won't see it till sometime next year...

Maybe a ROM like Cyanogen would have it soon after the actual release, but the current CM7 build is not what I would consider a 'daily driver'. It has too many things that don't function (3D, 4G, still getting kinks out of bluetooth, etc) because it's still in alpha phase. It'll get done, and I'm anxiously awaiting it, but it may not get ICS in our build any time soon.

But all the Sense-based ROMs are going to have to wait for HTC to release ICS to us from a normal OTA, break down that OTA, and then update their ROMs to the changes. So, realistically, you're looking at least a week or two after HTC releases it before the Sense-Based ROMs get it.

This is on of the first releases that I am actually not super excited for. It isn't that I don't like trying out new things, but my phone has been working perfectly straight stock. I haven't had a reason to root like I did with our TBolt. For everyone else sake though I hope they release it asap, I know how horrible it is waiting for these things to release.

I agree. The Evo 3D runs very well on stock. Much better than the Evo 4G did. I'm excited for Ice Cream, but I won't be as eager for it as I was for this phone

Yeah, just another example of how it's all just so opinion-based.

I've been using CM7 since the first alpha, it's the only ROM i use. I'm in an area without 4g, I think 3d is just a novelty and pretty pointless, and I don't have any use for bluetooth lol

Apparently the ICS build of CM is going to be CM9 (I think CM8 is supposed to be honeycomb, but google won't release source info for that?)

Hopefully done by Xmas

Unfortunately for me, I use Bluetooth on a daily basis, 4G on a nearly daily basis, and 3D at least once a week. That kills my desire to play with CM7 until it's closer to being done.

I was more pointing out that it's taking toast a bit of time to build CM7 for the 3D. I understand it takes a lot of time (isn't he building the kernels and such from scratch?), plus there's life outside of the computer and all. And that's for a Gingerbread build. To expect an ICS build of CM on the Evo 3D soon after ICS is released is a rather high hope, IMO.

Yeah, I guess it's a bit unrealistic to expect a finished CM of ICS by xmas (lots of abbreviations lol), but maybe there will be an alpha by then, it didn't take very long at all for an alpha of CM7 to come out after the evo 3d got unlocked

And out of curiosity, what do you use 3d for so often? Do you mean you use the 3d camera mode, or viewing mode?

Htc and Sprint were very fast with Froyo and only delayed Gingerbread to avoid people not buying the 3D, so I have high hopes it'll be out late this year or early next.

Mostly viewing. But whenever I go exploring, I'll take some 3d pictures. I like how it adds a nice accent to the pictures. Like one I took of a tree on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The tree stands out just a little, and you can tell it's a cliff, and the ocean looks so far away.

I take almost all of my photos in 3D. I can view them in either 2D and 3D, and when I share to an outside source, I can choose which mode as well. So I don't see a reason not to always shoot in 3D. Space hasn't been an issue, and I can always offload stuff onto my desktop if I do run low.

this is what I thought I was going to do before I got the phone, but the reason why I don't take everything in 3d is because the 3d pic split into 2 and uploaded onto places like facebook look horrible and really low quality

I am guessing ICS might be out by Xmas or January for The E3D. It should get it before any other phone because HTC has a good relationship with Google, and it came out before the other phones, just like the evo 4g last year

I was thinking this also. But since Google is trying to buy Motorola, it might come on the Photon first.

Eh, I don't think they're going to pay much mind to Motorola in that regard. Though this is me being hopeful.

Seeing as I haven't had a chance to read up on ICS... what exactly are the benefits it will bring?

And also I heard something about updating bluetooth, does this mean we'll finally be able to pair our wii remotes to our 3vo's?

Why don't you have the phone convert it into 2D then upload that, instead? Long press on the photo, tap edit, then tap convert to 2D.

thanks, I'm quite surprised that i didn't know we could do that! But surely it would have the same low quality outcome? So far i've been using the software that's been explained somewhere on this forum that batch converts the 3d pics into their left and right versions, and then uploading the better looking of either the left or right picture.
If I convert into 2d on the phone like you said, will the pictures look any better than through the process i mentioned above, is there any type of upscaling performed?

(sorry for going a bit off topic but it's been bugging me for a while!)

Looks like HTC is evaluating whether or not to update to ICS at all. Many of the features are stuff that Sense has already, but there are a few new ones I'd like to see on our phones.

Shouldn't that make it easier for HTC to update since sense has many of these features? And do you have a link for this information?

The photos I've converted have the same quality of the 3D pictures sans the 3D aspect.

No, Sense uses the Sense framework, not the Google framework. I'm sure they're coded in different ways and are not easily ported to the other.

i really don't think there's any chance that HTC is going to skip the update for ICS for the 3vo. there would be a HUGE outcry from owners if such a powerful phone, only released in late june in the US (and much later elsewhere) didn't get an update released mere months after the launch of the phone.
also aren't google trying to get companies on board to try and support their phones at least 18 months after release, if hardware allows it, to combat fragmentation?

I saw the improvements...and I will be rooting if it is available that route with Sense 3.0. I've become a fan of Sense and I cannot imagine life without it. The thought of going to pure vanilla flavor scares me!

I'm impressed with the improvements they have made. Still, nothing that makes me feel like my perfectly functioning 3V0 needs to be updated any time soon.

And also I heard something about updating bluetooth, does this mean we'll finally be able to pair our wii remotes to our 3vo's?

HTC put on their Facebook today that they will be upgrading as many of their devices as possible and would release info on specific devices and timing in the weeks.

It it highly likely that, yes, the Evo 3D should get ICS 4.0. However, nothing has been officially confirmed.

Given sprint and HTC's support for the evo line, I would plan on receiving the update. The question is when, but between the evo 4g and now the 3vo, I think we've all been pleasantly surprised by how fast the Android updates have rolled out to our phones.

It'd be rather foolish for HTC to not upgrade the Evo 3D/Sensation to ICS. Sprint is still marketing the Evo 3D pretty well. The Sprint Store that I pass every day on the way to work still has a sign that says "Come on in and get your Evo 3D today!" and has had that up since release. So, either they're lazy, or Sprint still wants the Evo 3D to sell. Or "Evo 3D" fits on the sign better than "Epic 4G Touch". Either or...

But still, how many people do you think would avoid buying HTC products if Samsung put ICS on the GS2 and HTC didn't do the same for the Evo 3D/Sensation. Not every carrier has a new HTC variant with ICS on the way just yet.

I'm afraid that this update will be like the gingerbread update for the 4G, in that it's not adding functionality, just backend with not much visible difference.

For the Evo 3D? Not likely. Even the CM team is waiting for the source release. Some people have built a ROM from the SDK and have been tinkering with it and posting screenshots, but don't expect any serious development until the source is out.

Android Insider Confirms Android 4.0 update for EVO 3D and Galaxy S II – More to Come

Take it how you will, but this is saying ICS on the 3vo sometime in December. It's pure speculation, but I think it's pretty encouraging!

Next month you say...maybe a nice Christmas present! If it really does come next month I will be AMAZED. Especially considering this phone will be 6 months old next month. If we were iPhone users we'd only have 6 more months till a new version comes out.
