    I think the next update this phones gets will be ICS. It's speculated that the update that is being delayed is the ICS update.

    If you look at the Verizon Software update schedule, it shows Razr Maxx (for example) is infact getting ICS next with a update size of 341MB.

    On the next page it shows Dinc 2 getting SU5 with a fiile size of 32mb and no mention of ICS so I was just wondering if anyone has heard when SU5 will be released.. update pages says SU5 is approved but roll out is delayed..

    Thanks again..

    IMO, if Verizon and HTC are going to release an ICS update I don't see them releasing any GB updates. Just my 2 cents.

    Hoping its ICS but it could be the GB 2.3.5 with Sense 3.0 that we never got.

    If the update forthcoming is really on 32MB (as is speculated based on the listing of a 32GB update), then there's no way it's ICS. Obviously an ICS update would be significantly larger than that.

    Its kind of common for wireless providers/manufacturers to release a minor update before releasing a new OS update. It has happened with a few phones before every other new android OS release and there are a few phones currently, that are receiving minor updates before ICS rolls out.

    "Pre-update" updates? :) By the way, has ICS been updated? What is the current version number?

    The main apps I use are supporting ICS now so an update shouldn't be very disruptive. There's always that potential though. We have to be careful what we wish for :pepsi:

    The China Incredible 2 just got ICS and Sense 3.6 a couple days ago, so hopefully very soon.

    I wasn't so concerened with the ICS update but rather the SU5 update this is currently approved but it's release has been delayed.

    Anyone heard anything on when the SU5 update will be released?

    Thanks

    I still stand as I stated before. I think the next update we get will be ICS and not SU5.

    You will not be disappointed in ICS. The ROM I'm running is ICS and it is the smoothest my phone has ever run.

    That update just showed up here (Phila., PA burbs). It's listed as being 32Mb. I won't know what rev level it leaves in until it's finished.

    BTW, I learned today, from a visit to a VZW store, that DINC's and DINC2's are having a problem which shows up as the phone seeming to be out of internal storage when, in fact, that's not the case. I've just been hit with that one and reporting that, at the store, is what prompted the comment. I was also told a fix is in the works but no ETA was given. We'll see if the memory problem goes away after the update is installed.

    Yeah this is the update that was rumored to be the ICS seen on the VZ servers. Now I'm sad we know it isn't it and the ICS update is God-knows-when...

    I also asked about ICS for the DINC2. There is a DINC3 in the works but the ETA is anyone's guess. With DINC2 at EOL and a DINC3 coming, from what I heard, I wouldn't hold my breath, waiting for ICS.
     
  25. Yes. It's been shipping on refurbs for a few weeks. The old downgrade doesn't work. Last I checked they were getting somewhere with tacoroot but the first reboot bootlooped.
