    OK....there will not Be a PURE google official release for the evo 3d -
    all official releases will have the HTC Sense skin.

    There are plenty of Fully functioning ICS Sense ROMS out there.

    Pretty annoying. :mad:

    BTW, the One X has an overflow button (3 dots) because it doesn't have a menu button. The 3 dot bar gets turned off with a change to one line of system configuration file. Pretty sure that they will know to turn it off for the 3vo.

    I have the EVO LTE and my 3vo. I like ICS, I do not like Sense 4. Anyone concerned about missing the "lightweight" new Sense, don't worry. It's not light and it's nothing to write home about. I've dumped most of it, and if I haven't been a hard core Sense fan, I'd do until one came along, if that tells you anything. If you want a good Sense clock replacement widget, check out the ones by Droid27 in the store, put that with Sense 3.6, and you're missing out on nothing in Sense 4, in my opinion.

    And if you want a good ICS launcher when you finally get the update, go for the Nova launcher, it's superb.

    Meanwhile, back to waiting for the official release. :mad:

    but how long will we have to way for Sprint to release it when HTC does? doesn't spring have to put their bloatwear on it first?

    I read somewhere (maybe even on here) that it's expected that Sprint will hold off until sales on the new ICS phones start to decline so the 3D update doesn't effect people's willingness to buy newer phones.

    Not sure how true that is though

    They've never done that before, makes no sense. The new phones are LTE in addition to ICS, with no reason to expect a sales decline anytime soon.

    Just root and stop waiting for sprint. I got tired of these updates being pushed back all the time so i took the plunge. I'm now running ZR3D and it's amazing. Follow the instructions exactly and free yourself. :)

    Oh, it's definitely true. I just called Sprint today to complain about the Sense crashes and memory leaks I've had on 2.3.4 for the past few months (and seemingly backed up by other reports of similar issues), and the response I got was to go into a Sprint store to get the phone upgraded to ICS. Which told me two things:
    1. Sprint has ICS in its system, all ready to go, but
    2. Sprint is refusing to release it for $ome $tupid rea$on.

    We can all speculate on when the release will be, bottom line, do yourself a favor and simply root like others have mention, I have been on ICS for over a month and I love it and do not have to wait, the only issue, is not that we have ICS is that now we want more, LOL

    Sprint nor HTC have ever been forthcoming with their releases, and they are not the only ones, I usually go by the saying when it is release it will be released and this way your expectations are not overwhelmed. You will get the ICS update sooner or later. ROOT ROOT and get it now and put your release date into your own hands, JMO :smokingsomb:;)

    I'll patiently sit back and wait for the update to come to my phone. I'm not worried anymore. Sometimes after waiting so long, the anticipation gets numbed.

    P.s. Rootingp is not an option for me. :)

    Do any of the roots actually support WiMax fully? I'm not gunna root if I don't have 4G...and I would like to still be able to fully use my camera (and 3D)...so if there is a ROM that supports everything, I wanna give it a try...

    Every ics Rom that was made after 5/24/12 has everything fully functioning. All threads are dated with when they were updated and will say 4.0.3 (I believe)

    seriously. I went to my phone to try it before reading it all. Damn you sprint. Nothing is worse than hearing "a couple more weeks" either, cause it's been like that for months.

    Sprint rep in April "you will def have it by the end of april"

    Oh man, just wanted to give a quick shout out/thanks to Sprint, who is pretty much the only carrier with the Evo 3D now that still hasn't pushed the ICS update out...and Jelly Bean could be here in under 3 weeks.
