    HTC have already said that ICS will be rolled out in the UK at the end of March.

    I'm currently using an official beta release from HTC through their elevate.com forum.

    If you have ICS, try it on your homescreen with 2 app shortcuts.
    Seems to work fine on mine:thinking:

    I currently have gingerbread 2.3.4 which I'm very happy with, especially the homescreen layout with the apps/phone/personalise arc at the bottom. If I upgrade to ICC will it change this layout dramatically? Will I have the option to change back to the 2.3 style? I have widgetlocker which will do it for my lockscreen but I don't know about the homescreen itself. Help please, thanks!

    The Apps/phone/personalize arc at the bottom is gone (wuhuu!) - see the screenshot I posted above. I much prefer the new layout, especially because it's customizable. And I wouldn't recommend using widget locker. It didn't react very well to my upgrade, and became a battery hog. Hopefully they will update the app soon, cause I really liked it.

    Ah thanks, I didn't see the screenie as workplace internet filters out pictures. It doesn't look bad, customisable is good but it's a bit bland and un-stylised, I guess we have no choice but to get used to it!?

    When I spoke to HTC yesterday they told me that they'd not even started rolling it out yet and to be totally honest I was left with the impression that it wouldn't be anytime soon.

    Just looking on HTC's Facebook page and it would appear it's hitting a fair few countries today. With any luck the UK will be one of them!

    does anyone here have issue after installing ICS to sensation XE? mine is having white screen every time exiting applications. it goes to my home page once i quit an application. i don't know whether it's a compatibility issue, but i doubt it is the case. i'd been waiting for it since last year and totally disappointed it turned out like this. any suggestion?

    Nope. I have had it for three weeks now, and that hasn't happened to me once. It did, however, happen often before I upgraded. But I never found a solution to it, sorry.

    Branded is when you buy a phone through a carrier (Orange/Vodafone etc). They put their own bits of software into the phone. This means that when updates come out from HTC, the carrier will not release it until they have tested it, and also made any changes to it that they see fit (like adding more bits of their software in).

    Unbranded phones do not contain any carrier specific software and when updates are released they get them straight away from HTC's servers.

    In the UK unbranded handsets typically come from the likes of Carphone Warehouse and I also think O2 provide unbranded handsets (though I may be wrong on that last point).

    If you can get un-branded then do, as you'll get updates a lot faster and it wont be filled with the carriers software and changes, which often you have no chance of removing unless you root and install a custom ROM.
     
    Tattycakes and Celyn like this.
