Yeah, I didn't think so either.
Haven't noticed a problem with flash, it updated in market after the update. Haven't played with it much though admittedly

^This, lol (probably)

I been kicking the idea around of going ahead and factory resetting it. Will that give me the option to keep the stuff on SD card (not exsdcard)? Anyone know?

If you're asking about the White HTC screen coming up after backing out of apps, it was

'Settings' - 'Developer Options' - 'Don't keep activities'.

When checked, the HTC screen came up every time...

Still nothing here. No updates at all. I'm on stock. I tried many times to check for updates. It doesn't do anything but say checking then back to the screen. Nothing saying up to date or anything. Thoughts

Not an option when sideloading PH98IMG.zip through hboot. I'm still glad I did it though, as I needed to get rid of a bunch of apps. (In response to the wiping internal memory deal... Taptalk doesn't let me redo my quote, just edit.)

Replacement Rezound just showed up...charging the battery before activating it...then going to activate it and hopefully I'll have some ICS to download before I set it up the way I want.

Does that preserve the internal phone memory? The phone calls it SD card when the actual sd card is listed as ex_sd card.

It cleared everything I think, my sd card stayed untouched. The only thing I lost was a few pictures from Handcent that may have been downloaded to the wrong directory

Just wanted to share that I finally got the OTA last night. It was in two pieces as has been reported. Strangely and unexpectedly, it didn't wipe my phone at all. Apps and data all still intact and I can finally install ICS only apps like Chrome and Nova Launcher. So happy.

One thing that was weird that may or may not help people is that the confirmation box would come up saying that the second part had been downloaded and allowed me to take, reject or cancel the upgrade but with Beautiful Widgets feature where is has the weather animations show when the phone is turned on from standby, the box would disappear and no amount of hitting the check for new software button would bring it back. Finally had to go into the Beautiful Widgets widget and turn off that option. Then the box stayed visible and I was able to choose the option to take the update. The install was fairly fast and very smooth.

For boot flashing the IMG.zip - And make sure that you have fast boot turned off first, or you won't get down to the bootloader.

It installed just fine on mine. All currrent/old apps, data and settings are intact (didn't lose anything). It was a seamless upgrade.

I had the micro-USB power plugged in while at it - be sure you guys do too!

It took like 30 minutes or so as it cycled thru various stuff.... downloading after downloading, reboot after reboot, etc. Everything was auto... don't mess/touch the phone after it starts the first/small 7MB file. For a moment it rebooted normally and stopped there at a "4GLTE" screen for the longest time and i thought it locked up!! Then i remembered i waited for half a year... so waiting a few more hours should not be a problem!! Then several minutes later it happily continued its way to download/install more stuff and when it was all done, everything looks/works great!!

And if you've seen on other threads... they suggest flashing twice. Since fast load "on" is the default setting, you'll need to go through minimum setup steps so you can get to settings and turn it off for the second flash.

I tested my HTC Flyer with my house WiFi off last night right after my ICS update and had Internet connection. I had changed the name of the connection and rebooted. But now it won't work. I have tried different fixes and WiFi hot spots, nothing will work. Trying a work around that allowed the original HTC Incredible non-rooted to work as a hot spot, but not successful yet.

Ugh!

Default ICS? How do I know?

When did ICS OTA happen and how do I know if my phone is up to date? I tried to "Check New" under software update but all it does is say it's checking and then reverts back to Status/Check New screen... Doesn't say if I'm up to date or not.

Sorry if this has been posted. I haven't been able to keep up with every post.

Just FYI for anyone who has not received the OTA.

I live in a Verizon "extended" area and didn't receive my OTA until I drove down to a Verizon service area. I received an update notification as soon as I hit the 4g. So if you are still waiting, and live outside an official Verizon area like me, you might need to give this a try. (I am not rooted or any of that)

So far I like it except I did the thing where you can adjust the size of a widget, and now it won't go back. Overall my phone seems to run a little quicker and more smoothly. I want to do a factory reset, but dread putting everything back in its place.

Thanks everyone on here for your comments and help.

I retract my previous statement about having a working hotspot after recieving ICS. Just got to really try it out tonight. My 4G keeps dropping every 20 seconds or so just like it was before ICS. Doesn't even drop to 3G, just drops altogether. This sucks. The only thing I was really looking forward to with the ICS OTA.

Easy there, Mr. Serious. I was being sarcastic, as was (i believe) the post I responded to. I thought my smiley face conveyed that. No?

Supposedly that's an actual picture and quote from an old magazine article. I LOL'd. Reminds me of a guy I work with who's pretty much a walking encyclopedia.

Mine hasn't been horrendous but it HAS been slightly worse. I have been playing a bit more with it but it still doesn't seem quite right. Factory reset is a MUST IMO. I keep putting it off, I simply don't wanna take the time.

I got the extended and it is saying I get around 13hours 50minutes per charge, compared to 14hours 30minutes before ota (according to battery left widget)

Thumbs up

This is perfect....I activate my replacement Rezound and first thing it does is go through the process of updating to ICS. I haven't even started to set it up the way I want it yet. Once it updates I'll do a quick factory reset and then start customizing it the way I want. I was hoping it would do this so I wouldn't have to go through the process of setting it up twice.

Awesome!




So anyone out there NOT have the OTA yet? I plan on keeping this thread open/stickied till I'm reasonable sure we have the initial 'I got it - I haven't got it' responses out of the way.

Still don't have it. I'm beginning to think I'm the only one. I've been in multiple areas around northeast Ohio and western pa and have checked for update and nothing happens. just back to previous screen.

If you're rooted, wait for a stock rooted rom or the custom rom of your choice.

That was my plan because I'm not changing anything until I know for sure that a wifi tether is working.

Thanks for your reply.

I'm running the .10 leak and still have not received it. Then again, I still owe them last month's bill... not to mention the amount of grief I've given Verizon on their G+ and Twitter posts. I'll probably start downloading the PH98IMG.zip file and THEN it will start.

I also live outside of their service area, but I work in Ithaca where there is a halfway decent 4G connection. I haven't received anything all week. Not that I'm worried, as I'm still not sure what I am missing running the .10 leak.

But I am getting an unusual number of "Unfortunately, Settings has closed." errors. Perhaps this was resolved in .12? Anybody running the OTA have this?

Do you get any kind of screen saying no update available? Or does it just go back to that first screen with no output to you whatsoever?

If it is the later, then you have a bad phone and need a replacement. My first one I had that problem with and got it exchanged 2 days after I got it.

I just got around to do our Rezound #2 and it went fine too (all data and settings are intact). At first the phone did not find the update. Then I rebooted it (the long/slow boot, not the fast boot). It then found the 7MB update and went for it....

hmm, mines having the same issue. ive had the phone about a year, and any time i click on status, its completely blank, except for the source field saying verizon wireless, and the code field says 0. and when i go to check new, the checking new software box comes up for a few seconds, then just disapears without saying anything. would doing a factory reset fix this issue so i could get the ota ics pushed to my device? or is a device replacement thru customer care the only option? really dont want a refurb.

As long as you have the necessary stuff backed up I say go ahead and factory reset it, then immediately start checking for update. Once you get it and you boot up into ICS then factory reset again one last time... (thats what I would do anyway)

one silly question...the playlists ive created thru the stock music player, do you know if ill lose those when doing a factory reset? not the actual songs themselves, i know those will still be on the sd card, but the actual playlist configurations.

I am having the same problem. Just did a factory reset with no luck. Looks like I'll be making a trip to Verizon this afternoon...

i figured it out, my sim card was bad. i swapped it out for a new one, reactivated it, and now software build is working, and my phone is downloading software updates as we speak. sweet.....might wanna try this first before going the refurb route.

Awesome, thanks! I'll try that, too. Much better option than a refurb phone.

Because my first Rezound was junk and I had a lot of apps and misc downloads/pics/etc, I waited for the update before really going back and spending a couple hours getting the replacement phone back to the way i had the previous. So that being said it's hard for me to say the battery life has been worse because I've been screwing around with it so much, but truthfully, I can watch the battery life tick away like a second hand (figuratively/relatively) on a clock while doing anything on this phone now with ICS.

Because I waited, it made it easy to do a factory reset (*yes with SD Card IN and no, it won't format the card unless you tell it to) and I can't say it really made a difference, though my main hope was to have it delete any leftover or old, useless files still floating around from Gingerbread. The only problem I've had since the update is with Google Navigation, which I had not even done a run with on Gingerbread as far as actually driving and trying to use it. On ICS Google Nav restarted my phone several times, basically "bricked" it for about 5 minutes before it cooled enough (*black screen, no start even with battery pull) and froze the phone to one useless home screen once. I actually threw my phone across the car after that.

Also I bought both Apex and Nova launcher to give them a test run. I got rid of Nova over Apex, but then Apex started telling me that I need to root my phone to use some features. When I bought them I did not realized I needed a rooted phone to make them work. Very dissapointed, but Sense is actually a good program, In My Honest Opinion. They did ICS really well, too.
