    On a serious note though it does seem improbable that your chum has 4.0 legit
    With one click rooting and flashing available 99% of people can root without difficulty

    Maybe he was trying to put on over you especially if you have waited patiently for the official ics rom

    Don't take memes seriously
    Maybe I do spend to much time on 4chan

    I didn't mean to offend you, was just a comment of my experience of the ICS update from the people I know, I don't know you or your friend so wouldn't be so blunt as to call you a liar.

    jugglerbry, I've removed the offending comments and I apologise for any offence was caused, I sincerely hope the posts were made in jest. Feel free to hit the report button if you see something which you believe needs a moderators attention. :)

    My thoughts exactly!

    My post was certainly in jest.

    That said - HTC are still quoting July/August for ICS on the DHD.

    Jugglerbry - is it possible your friend is using an un-official version?

    Guys let's just get back on topic. I was at TELUS yesterday getting my Desire HD back from repair. The associate I dealt with had some info about TELUS getting it likely by July 18th for the first rollout. And with TELUS usually being a week or so behind orange, 3, etc, you should see it soon!

    What update will we be getting?

    Of course ICS 4.0 ( mabye even 4.0.3 )

    But which sense? 3.6 or 4.0???

    If we get 3.6 , does the actual update mean that we'll be getting more custom ROM's?

    When the ICS update hits our device, I believe that we will see an updtaed version of most custom ROM's, as the drivers will be worked on and incorporated by ROM devs :)

    Don't get ANY hopes up:

    http://blogs.computerworld.com/mobile-and-wireless/20647/android-upgrade-report-card-second-quarter:

    Android upgrade report card: HTC
    Things aren't looking so sunny for HTC at the end of the second quarter. The company, which earned a semi-respectable "B-" for its upgrade efforts in the first quarter of the year, let users down on a number of different fronts these past few months.
    HTC promised an "early 2012" upgrade for its Amaze 4G phone but didn't deliver the upgrade until late May. It promised an upgrade for its EVO 3D at the start of 2012 but didn't roll out any upgrades to the phone until last week -- and the upgrade remains limited in nature, with EVO 3D customers in the U.S. still waiting for any sign of progress.
    The letdowns, unfortunately, don't stop there: HTC promised an upgrade by the end of March for its Sensation 4G but didn't provide it until the middle of May. It promised a "May or June" upgrade for its EVO 4G+ phone and has yet to come through in any way. And it promised "early 2012" upgrades for the EVO Design 4G and HTC Rezound -- then changed its mind and said it'd upgrade them in "June or July." As of now, both devices are still waiting.
    If HTC is going to catch up, it's going to have to start working in overtime, as several of its other handsets are nearing the end of their promised upgrade windows as well: The Desire HD, Desire S, Droid Incredible 2, Rhyme, and Thunderbolt are all set to be upgraded within the next two months, with two of the phones down to be done before the end of July.
    HTC did deliver on one promise this quarter: It sent Ice Cream Sandwich to its international Incredible S phone in early July, as scheduled. But with all the failures, that one success isn't enough to erase an otherwise embarrassing performance.
    FINAL GRADE: D+

    Let's at least get one update out of the way :p;):D

    I'm not exactly sure that our device would get Jellybean anyway (through the carrier/manufacturer routes at least)... will be happy to be proven wrong by HTC though :D
