Remember way back in December when T-Mo hinted an Ice Cream Sandwich update for the HTC Amaze? Almost five months later, the page has not been updated and an official software update has not been released. Thanks to veteran XDA user Football, however, Amaze owners can download a leaked version of the official ICS update. Considering that the Amaze recently got S-Off capability, it's looking like users have a lot to be excited about this week.

For those interested, this update contains software version 2.14.531.1. Though the download was only posted earlier today, several reports of success are rolling in already. For more information, a download link, and to see what other users are saying, just hit the source link below. With this leak, it is likely that those readers who are using stock devices only have a matter of time to wait before the update is officially released, though no official word is yet available.

    Apparently all OEMs have discovered the best way to get software updates to customers is to "leak" builds and just bypass the carrier testing all together. Also because these are "leaks" the manufacturer doesn't have to get everything working perfectly.

    Think of it as a win/win, except the consumers lose.

    Also, in slightly related news, a cousin of mine just got the OTA for his Sprint Nexus S 4G and complained that he did not like the OS because the icons are blue.

    Regular consumers make me a sad panda.

      I've been *patiently* waiting with stock since November 1st... can't say exactly making in my pants but darn I was shocked to see this article in my feed. Guess the OTA update will arrive soon... I sure hope so!

    will this void warranty?

    • fixxmyhead

      duh

         put people with s-on can flash though hboot
         

        • Karmavore

          It does NOT void your warranty. It is an official build of ICS 3.6 and can be installed on any T-mobile Amaze 4G.

            Took the words right out of my mouth

            It most certainly does void the warranty. I have just contacted t-mobile about a hardware issue that my phone has. They claim the warranty is voided and will not issue an RMA.

    • fixxmyhead

      I really don't know much about HTC phones cuz of there stupid hboot bootloader crap. Samsung phones are much easier flash a tar file and done. I stay away from HTC but I think its still gonna void it even with s -on

      • Nelson1345

         its official though

        • fixxmyhead

          Not official official. Its not done

    The download is tough to get from the link on XDA.  If you need to get the file and cannot on XDA it can be found at: http://www.android-advice.com/2012/htc-amaze-4g-official-android-4-0-update-and-download-leaked/

    It's ok, faster but most of the phone's with ics that I have seen look way different than what is on this update, looks like a stripped down version of ics.

    • Merengueardiente

      why? can elaborate...

  • Jmart922

    I installed this a few days ago and so far my amaze 4g runs several times better, loving this 4.0.3 goodness

    • Yungjames1123
