    I have an HTC Wildfire and was wondering if it is compatible with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Can anybody enlighten me on this topic?
    :D

    Hi.

    I find it highly unlikely that wildfire should get ICS, it's hardware is simply not powerful enough to run it.

    Yes he is right without a doubt
    Wildfire doesnt even have gingerbread (unless you decide to root)

    Are you sure it's not the Wildfire S, there's not an official GB release for the original Wildfire. So unless your phone is rooted and running a custom ROM, you won't have gingerbread out of the box.

    If you are running Android 2.2 currently you should be able to upgrade your Android version under :

    all apps>about phone> HTC Software Updates> Check Now. When 2.3 was released I got a message offering the upgrade.

    android 2.3.3 HTC Sense 3.1 Software # 1.63.532.4

    Can you post a screen shot please? There is nothing online to say that Gingerbread is available for the Wildfire without rooting. I can't find any reference to that software number either. There is also no Sense 3.1 (Sense 3.0, Sense 3.5 and Sense 2.1 exist).

    Are you sure you're talking about the Wildfire?

    Here is a link to the actual thread of where the ROM can downloaded >HERE<

    But if i were you i'd check out my review so I would know what to expect... Just saying :p

    If your referring to the previous posts about a member allegedly having the official Android 2.3 running on his Wildfire, it cant.

    The Wildfire and Wildfire S are two different model, users with Wildfires (i bet) will never get the official Android 2.3
