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.
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HTC will leave me waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S3, besides it’s only a matter of 3-6 months until that model will be outdated.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!
