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!
