The HTC Desire HD has been out for quite a while now. It has been considered one of the best among its class, and we’ve already heard a lot of praises about this Android smartphone over the Internet.
Some of you may be happy and contented with whatever HTC has decided to load the Desire HD with. Others are not as content. For the latter type of people, we bring glad tidings. If you want to see more action on your Desire HD, having Ice Cream Sandwich running inside the device might probably do the trick. This article will teach you how–specifically, how to update your Desire HD to Android 4.0.3 via the LC ICS 4.0.3 ROM. So, check out the rest of the guide for the instructions.
There’s no official Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) for the HTC Desire HD just yet. The one that we are going to use here is based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and CyanogenMod 9 (CM9). This custom ROM has been developed by the guys from XDA Developers who are always at the forefront of innovation for the Android community. They call this custom ROM the LC ICS 4.0.3 – 1.0.beta4, which will indicate that it is still in the beta stage of development. You need not worry, though, because this custom ROM already received a lot of good reviews from people who have tried it.
This process will require you to root your device which will void its warranty. And, we would like to explicitly mention that this custom ROM will only work with the HTC Desire HD. Please don’t attempt to use this ROM or these instructions on a different device.
You should now be able to enjoy the much-coveted Ice Cream Sandwich on your HTC Desire HD Sim Free, thanks to the LC ICS 4.0.3 ROM. Congratulations!

Doesnt work for me! Even after wiping data and wiping the cache, it still returns back to the old rom. Pls help if possible thanks!
Sorry for the wrong info! I eventually got it right, appapprently my radio was S-ON and not S-OFF, fixed the problem and the os is working well! However is there a bug with the camera?
hi i have followed your instructions to the letter …. the phone now boots to a splash screen then goes no further …. HELP :-0(
did you resolve this? i have the same problem
I have the same problem too. Please, can you help me if you fixed it on your device?
Works perfectly well for me. Before this, few days ago I upgraded to gingerbread with an official update. This screwed my radio as my connection used to drop off often and signal used to be weaker than before. Now with this Ice Cream Sandwich update although radio version has changed I have to see over next couple of days if my signals still drop out.
Apart from that at this stage my phone looks perfectly well and ICS looks awesome. So refreshing!!! :) Good luck to others!!!
And thanks for this post!!!
does this work with a Mac?
Installation worked beautifully.
However, the data connection speed is significantly slower than the previous rom I had been using and the camera is a little buggy too.
Anyone know if i can use this and install using a mac?
