I just did a update check "for fun", and whoops there was an update for 4.0
Your phone is one of the first to have this update and MArch was the release month...
HTC lists Smartphones getting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade - Social Barrel
Now that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside... To bad I don't have it yet!
If you're rooted expect your phone to get ****ed very soon...
What carrier are you on so I can manage my expectations..!?
My phone is unbranded and unlocked. Its a "Nordic" phone.
Looks like its only available in Nordic countries - so far.
as a Vodafone customer I shall expect to be the last to receive it after they have had their hands on it for a while to check it (check being add bloatware to it)
Yup, it you have a branded phone, you pretty much always have to wait longer for your updates - often much longer
My phone has Vodafone branding, but in my experience their update process has actually been pretty fast (usually about 2 or 3 days after the general rollout). The bloat's a bitch, though.
Don't know how many here have upgraded to ICS. However after the update WIFI isn't working as all. The same thing happened to a friend of mine....
Argh ,I was hoping to get the wifi issues solved with the update....
Anyway, did you see any improvement, except the WiFi ?
I haven't "tested" it sooo much so far.
Anyway, yes, it runs smoother. Smoother scrolling. The battery lasts longer....
What WIFI issues did you have? Nine was working fine before the update.
My WiFi access point works fine with computer, ps3 and HTC tattoo. The sensation cannot connect, only way I found is to use static IP
I seriously hope HTC will fix this SOON
I'm on Cincinnati Bell and my software version is different than any I have seen on any forums (1.46.422.2) so I expect to be the last person to get the official release..... if I ever do.
Here's hoping they fix the Signal Strength issue that's been plaguing Voda Sensations for months and months....or they could always 'port' the bug across to ICS
Today, Vodafone UK, just pushed me an update to "Optimise phone to upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0"
It took two seconds to run and seemed to have no effect...
BUT its a good sign that ICS is on its way to Vodafone UK Sensations...
I also got this last patch night, here's hoping
hiya, just bought a sensation, after being happy with my desire.
what do you mean by this ?.
I saw no such update, but I suppose that's a positive sign.
I also had the optimisation update in preparation for ICS
Look in your Apps for a Voda app called 'Updates', mine was set to manual but when I did 'Check for updates' I got the optimisation/sysprep package people are talking about here.
I'm not surprised some "rooted" users will not be looking forwards to Vodafone's ICS upgrade as there is potential for it to brick their phone I suppose, but with Android being an open source OS, I wouldn't expect it to.
Of course I will be the first to eat my words if Vodafone's update crashes my vanilla Vodafone Sensation, but otherwise I expect all hardware, radios etc to work as they should (unlike some of the xda versions found there).
So long as its here before mid-May, my phone will still be in its 12mth warranty!
Excellent advice, thanks!
I'm not quite sure I follow, I'm afraid.
