Default *Rezound Jelly Bean Waiting Thread!

This thread is for all of us who are sick and tires of waiting for Jelly Bean 4.1! It took 8 months to get ICS! We should demand that HTC and VZW give us Jelly Bean within 30 days! It is silly that we had to wait 8 months of delays from their own release date! That is why we deserve Jelly Bean in September! Jelly Bean now or we will mail in Jelly Beans to VZW and htc

HTC officially said somewhere that they will NOT be developing JB for the Rezound... If I find the thread I will post it, but pretty sure it was in XDA somewhere.

HTC and Verizon have fulfilled their obligation to the Rezound.
It really is a bit outlandish to expect or demand Jellybean. They are both a business afterall and when Microsoft puts out a new Windows you have to pay for it, right? Why should Jellybean be free to you? People spend a lot of time and money to develop that software... not to give it away to deserving personalities.

We will be getting JB, but just not through HTC and Verizon. You can follow the AOSP development over at XDA's forums.

By what measure do you figure that? Google encourages a commitment to updates 18 months after the release. That's 3 versions of Android. I seem to remember HTC pledging to that commitment.

None of those are my choice. The vast majority of people, I suspect, would prefer the latest version over the presence of Sense, if one had to chose.

You seem to be missing the point here. If I can trust HTC to give me timely and regular updates, I am FAR more likely to repeat buy an HTC phone. HTC claimed, at the release of ICS, said that we would get it "early 2012. Since it was sent out in the 3rd quarter, and not the 1st, the owners of this phone have not received the product we believe we were getting. They can make it up to all the Rezound owners that ARE disgruntled by getting JB out the door as an apology of sorts, and as a testament to their commitment to updates.

Your recent join date indicates to me that you haven't been informed of all the various Android news concerning updates. None of the above I've stated is an orginal thought, they've all been so thoroughly hashed out on these forums alone that the thoughts should be second nature by most by now.

A lot of developers did, but...then nothing happened. It's essentially dead.

I'm not fretting over Jelly Bean. XDA will handle it relatively quickly, and it will be free of Verizon bloat. Now I'm just waiting on CM9 to be complete...

That implies that their inaction is their excuse for not following through on the promise. That's circular reasoning.

I posted on the root subforum about getting JB and the opinion there was that we were unlikely to get a lot of ROMs for it.

ICS was nice for the performance boost, kind of like when everyone wanted Froyo asap on their phones. From Froyo to Gingerbread it was kind of meh.....I havent really seen anything on JB that makes me drool. I have no interest in the Siri wannabe thing so whatevs....

You're lack of understanding as to the production and release of any product, especially operating systems is interesting. For instance, would you be happy to receive your 1Q update that was garbage? If so, hey, your theory makes sense.

All that nonsense aside, buy a new phone if you want a big upgrade. This is America and not much is free. Though by simply looking around these days it's easy to understand (sadly) why everyone thinks they deserve everything for so little. No offense, just get over it. You're phone is great.

Default 5 HTC Devices to Receive Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update

This is more optimistic
"
Originally released operating on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, this 2011 model might just be getting a generous bump to Android 4.1 after receiving update to ICS just recently. While there have been some rumors suggesting ICS could be the last update this device could receive, the specs would tell us it is more than capable of running Jelly Bean smoothly.
However, should HTC decide to upgrade Rezound, it will take months before the update will arrive knowing Verizon just rolled out ICS in late July. If the manufacturer took nine months to release the ICS update for this handset, it may also take that long to release Jelly Bean.

Guys, all of you are smarter than I am about this but for what it's worth. ICS is not (for me) worth the BS and inconvenience I have put up with from the upgrade. All these little enhancements need to be put into perspective with what I need in my day to day use. GB was stable and useful and I did not have all the f****** issues I have had to deal with after ICS. Maybe verizon and htc need to get their acts together with the operating systems before they get like MS.

Sometimes all the hype is just that, hype.

So, how is JB going to be any better?

IMHO, YMMV.

Not at all trying to rub it in, I've been in the waiting game before (Eris and Inc) but Jelly Bean is every bit as big a step from ICS as ICS was from GB from what I've seen using both on the Nexus. The performance boost is unreal and the extra polish as well as the added functionality ( call it a Siri wannabe if you must but this kicks Siri's robotic voiced ass and is actually extremely usable) are vastly better than in ICS. I imagine you'll be seeing CM10 on this side of things soon enough, give it a fun I think you'll agree with me.

I doubt it is interesting. I read numerous explanations from developers as to the labor required to create an OS.

First of all, you're assuming that an earlier release would inherently mean less quality. Therefore, a release that happens more than 4 months later should be of higher quality, right?

Exhibit A:

I also am compelled to out that the GB update for the Inc was "garbage". It was long over due, and when it came it was so bad they had to pull the update and rework. Asus updated their tablet in January, so clearly it is possible. Your appeal to quality is null.

I did exactly what you claim will fix the issue, and my NEW phone was on the same version as my OLD phone more than 4 months after an update was promised.

I saw you heading down the road of entitlement, and I do take offense. Somehow demanding that promises be kept, and that a product I am literally going to spend thousands of dollars on and use daily be kept current makes me an entitled American brat? Bravo on the spin, there's a cable news channel you could work for and fit right in.

OK.......

I let this thread stay cause I figure there is a chance we get JB.

That said, if you can't add anything positive/constructive to the thread then don't bother posting in it

We all (i assume) have android phones. You can expect updates on a android phone, that is the way android is. No one is on the wrong for expecting the latest update. Period.

Perhaps we never get it. I can live with that, I won't be happy but I will still be able to wake up every morning



Some of the examples/reasoning in here are already making me shake my head, I just don't get it. And that too is OK.

BUT, comparing a free OS update to MS releases just doesn't hold water IMO (<-in my opinion)

If HTC wants brand loyalty then OS OTA's are not only expected, but assumed.






Lets please keep this thread about the discussion/speculation about whether or not we are getting JB. Let us not throw stones or take shots at our fellow members, everyone's opinions are welcome as long as they are presented respectfully.

Old article, but worth reading.

Much like the Erus, which never received an OTA OS upgrade past Eclair, the Rezound was pretty much a Verizon phone built by HTC. The marketing is all Verizon. Even the red "z" in the name is Verizon's. They have no major interest in selling any more, because the selling points are now moot. Dual core is surpassed by quad core. Beats us no linger HTC's red headed stepchild. 720 screens suck up power, and as an LCD its days are numbered. Sense 4.0 is deemed "incompatible" with the Resound, and as one user put it, Sense 4.0's numbering sequence is a marketing ploy itself, leading me to believe that HTC has moved on since Verizon wanted another spec-killing phone. I don't believe that we'll ever see a major OTA upgrade, other than maybe one or two bug fixes. Demanding an upgrade to 4.1 is, IMO, pointless.

Root and let XDA take care of that for you.

I love JB but to me it's not the upgrade boost ICS has been in general performance. I wouldn't mind getting it for my Rezound because I'm either going to have to pay retail for my next phone or lose unlimited data, so I'd like to keep my Rezond as relevant as possible for as long as possible. That said, I'm sucker and will probably waste a good hunk of money on the next big thing just because I love tech, even if my budget doesn't lol.

Bought a N7 to satisfy my craving or a new gizmo, it's keeping my upgrade lust at bay, for now...

There are no working JB ROM's for the Rezound that I am aware of, however there a ton of other ROM's out there, XDA has about 20-30 different ones so take your pick from custom ones, AOSP/AOKP, MIUI, CM9 Kangs, etc. here: Rezound Android Development - xda-developers You might have to go through a couple pages to find them all! Note developement has kind of slowed on the Rezound the last week or two, most of the developers are waiting for the ICS kernel source to be release, or bricked their phone in the last week... there was kind of a rash of this among the top Rez developers lately.

Thanks, I've been all over the XDA. I am really surprised there isn't any JB dev'n going on for the Rez.
I was hoping I had missed something. Oh well

No, you didn't miss it, although several of the developers think after the source code for ICS is released that JB will be possible, so patience may payoff here.

forget jellybean i now want keylime pie as it has taken way to long to get jellybean out to us. I read that Keylime pie may be out for the holidays as when you click on a jellybean rom version and then click on that image you will see a lone candykane in their meaning that either this christmas their will be a new os called KandyCane or something like a new nexus device.... either way i say we demand on announcement day that we all have access to every device that is can run on. That is... the day google announces the new android version then any phone that meets its specs can download it and install it. I think its about time that google takes over the update process.

LMAO!!! Are you serious!?!?!

The reality is that phones have a marketable life cycle, followed by a service life span, and the Rezound is nearing it's end of marketable life, in fact it has held on for longer than most phones and probably longer than HTC ever imagined, and it's service life (maintenance updates only) is just in starting and will last about another 1.5 to 2 years. No company (HTC, Samsung, Motorola, or whoever) is going to invest time and effort into building, testing, and deploying an operating system for phones that are no longer marketable, likely not even being manufactured anymore, and beginning it's service life cycle.

For example, the ORIGINAL DROID could run Jelly Bean, in fact there are several unofficial ports of it for that device, do you think Motorola should also supply a factory supported ROM for that device just because it is capable of running it?

I would love to eat my words here, but reality says we will never "officially" get Jelly Bean, Key Lime Pie, Lemon Drop, or Marshmallow from HTC/Verizon for the Rezound, no matter how loud you scream for it, a stable Global Mode ICS ROM? Yes, most likely that will be the case.

Cell phones are a business and need to make money... making a new operating system for a "dead" phone doesn't make money, it takes money away but someone not buying a new phone with the latest and greatest. Like it or not, this is a free market and businesses need and want to make money, not give it away.

I have to agree. Rezound is nearing the end of it's marketable life cycle and practical cycle for us (many of us are just waiting for the next great phone to come along) and while I would love JB offically...I would be happy with ICS 4.0.4.

I don't think it's out of line to believe it could happen someday but the fact that my Gnexus doesn't have official JB yet doesn't bode well for for a timely release. Especially when you add in the Sense factor. They can't even get the vanillaesque version out there.

Wow, I guess it helps to talk things out sometimes:

Jelly Update Finally Rolling Out to Verizon Galaxy Nexus? – Droid Life

Also a confirmation in the Gnex forum of a user receiving update. So the faster this all happens, the better the outlook for the Rezound IMO.

The Rezound will never get Jelly Bean
The Bionic will never get Ice Cream Sandwich or Jelly Bean
The Incredible 2 will never get Ice Cream Sandwich
The Commando will never be rootable, get upgraded to Gingerbread or get Cyanogenmod


[waiting.... waiting.... waiting... waiting]

Dang, nothing happened!

Was worth a shot I guess

looks like the Rezound at least has a chance as it has more than 512MB

Hope your not holding your breath, it is unlikely HTC will release JB for this device, and for the most part the AOSP based ones are barely in early alpha stages, probably several months to go before a stable, daily-driver is available from developers.

I noticed a slew of JB ROMs came out last week. It would be great if someone were to post here when one of those ROMs becomes stable and fully operational.

Ostensibly as a security measure, Jelly Bean doesn't allow applications to be installed to a secondary (or external) SD card slot. That means that unless this is reversed in a ROM, the Rezound is stuck using its internal eMMC slot which is only 2GB in size. Doesn't give much hope for Jelly Bean.

Not entirely true. You can install apps onto a devices internal memory on jellybean. The rezound has 16gb of internal storage.

Yeah, turns out the phone has 16gb internal. I confused the RAM with the storage. Not sure why Ive been plagued with out of memory on app upgrades even after blowing away lots of apps on that phone, however. Uninstall/reinstall usually works, but blows away game progress.
