    There is a leaked official HTC Amaze 4G ICS RUU. But it shouldnt be too long until tmobile sends out the official "official" OTA Update to ICS.

    I saw something after I posted this but good lord does it sound complicated to install. I didn't understand half of it and I'm really tech savvy.

    Will this keep the amaze camera apk, or will it revert to the sense 3.6 or ics one?

    I'm currently running the leak, and I gotta say, it's great so far.

    Thought about it but it isn't official final build and don't even understand what they were saying to install it.

    Ah, I apologise. So what camera app is it using? The same one as normal but tweaked to work on ics? Or has it changed now?

    I honesty haven't paid attention, just been using it. Works great like before, great image quality imo.

    Can anyone tell me how I can get the update when it releases? I have a T Mobile Amaze but I am not in USA and I am running on a Telecom NZ network- they did not release the Amaze here.

    Does this mean I'll have to root my phone and load a custom ROM?

    No need to root. When the official update is released you'll be able to download and manually install it.

    Of you don't want to wait for T-Mobile to push it out to you you can always download it NOW!

    [ROM]RUBY_ICS_35_S_TMOUS_2.14.531.3_Radio_1.14.550L.17D C_30.78.550L.15_release - xda-developers

    This was a pre release of the update that T-Mobile just anounced . Exact same build numbers and all.

    Depending on your style of phone, s-off, root, or just bone stock will determined the way you upgrade.

    There are instructions on post 2. Its not that hard and it will not be getting any better unless T-Mobile sends out an update. This is it! Kinda bummed since I have been using it for a few weeks now. Would always want something more :)

    Ok I have the file sitting in the download directory. Now what where do go from here
    Its a stock phone nothing unlocked what do I do next?

    This is only for T-Mobile USA phones.


    When have downloaded the file on your PC rename the file to ph85img.

    Take out the SD card from your phone and place it in the computer. Drag the file to that card and make sure it is not in a folder.

    Place SD card back into phone.

    Pull battery, Put battery back in <---important wait about 30 seconds

    hold down volume down then hold power until you go into hboot don't touch after that if it says loading your good. If nothing happens read the rest of the posts. We have answered a issue.

    After that it does everything for you.

    DO NOT TOUCH THE PHONE . Should take no longer then 30 minutes. Your phone will turn on and off that's normal. When you get the welcome screen your done. You have once again a new phone!

    Thank for your help X

    Sounds like you did not name the file correctly.

    just select fastboot for now.

    Open up astro and then find the file.

    select the file by long pressing it. Select rename. Make sure it reads PH85IMG and it is in zip format. The way to tell is it looks like a vice clamp.


    It says galaxy tab on the pick. Make sure it looks like that img only.

    Then start over with the process in my previous post.
