HTC Desire HD Gets Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) / Android 4.0

Post 16 of 74

It’s been announced and it’s going to be very soon that Android 4, or Ice Cream Sandwich, ICS for short, is coming to the HTC Desire HD.
Now like the vast majority of people with DHD I’m really excited, so excited I contacted HTC for the Stock Gingerbread ROM, or the ICS ROM.

My email came back from support basically telling me that I’d have to send it off for repair??  To cut a long story short, if you’ve flashed a custom ROM to your Desire HD then without shelling out to HTC (again) you won’t be able to simply upgrade to ICS.

So, I’m on the look out for the STOCK Unbraded ROM For a Desire HD, My phones totally unlocked and came sim free.

I will add, this is possibly the final straw with HTC, they release an app letting you flash custom roms to your phone but don’t offer the stock ROM to download? Madness.

Regardless of how sexual the HTC One X, I simply won’t be going with HTC no more, the build quality, problems, and pathetic customer service from HTC will leave me waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S3, besides it’s only a matter of 3-6 months until that model will be outdated.

If anyone comes across the stock rom please let me know! Will be posting on the XDA Forums, and If I find It, then I’ll add a new blog post and host the ROM!

Hi guys!

This should be the URL to download the stock ROM, directly from HTC themselves!

Select your phone, area and carrier and you’re sorted :)

It was always the case that you would lose support when you either root or install a custom ROM on your phone. The ability to overclock and fry your chip is then available. EVERYONE knows this. A little reading before you applied the changes would have confirmed it. If you install a custom ROM you can BRICK your phone, why should HTC be responsible for that. For them to easily allow you to install firmware to mask the fact that you messed up the hardware, then send it back for repair would be commercial suicide. A little common sense should have applied before you wrote this post.

On another note you are probably aware that HTC are no longer releasing ICS for the Desire HD, a sore point for many, myself included.

I suggest you take a look at the ASopX ROM http://code.google.com/p/aospx/. I have been running it for a while and it seems to be reasonably stable.

Hi Sucker;

Unfortunately I’ve dropped all interest from ICS. I’ve been running Jellybean 4.1.1 for quite some time now, it’s the “Jellytime” ROM, and it’s very, very fast and stable!
