While many Samsung Android-based smartphones and tablets are still (un)fashionably late to the Ice Cream Sandwich party, HTC is doing its best to keep its customers happy and updated. Less than a week after the Sensation 4G has received an Android 4.0 official OTA upgrade, the Amaze 4G is currently enjoying the same refreshing treatment.
T-Mobile’s exclusive device is getting the ICS update right on schedule, as it has been announced for a while, which is yet another reason for HTC and T-Mo customers to be happy with their manufacturer and carrier of choice.
If you haven’t yet received a prompt message to download a tasty software package, you can manually check for the update by accessing the “Settings” menu of your phone, and the subsequent “About Phone”, “HTC Software Updates” and “Check” options. If this doesn’t work either, you might want to reboot your device for a couple of times or check for a better Internet connection.
Before downloading and installing the Android 4.0 update, you should make sure that your handset’s battery life is at a 50 percent mark or higher, because the software package is quite hefty and could run your battery down before being fully installed on your device.
While I’m almost positive that you know what to expect from the update in terms of new features and improvements, I’m going to once again publish the shortlist of things to wait for from your “refreshed” phone. You will therefore receive all the following and many more:
Have you received the over-the-air update? Was the installation as smooth as HTC and T-Mobile was expecting it to be? Drop us a line in the comments section and let us know!

I TOOK EXACTLY AN HOUR TO DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL , LOOKS LIKE GOOGLE IS LOOKING TO PUSH GOOGLE PLUS AND ITS PLAY MOVIES BY MAKING IT STOCK APPLICATIONS
did you see an android with warning sign when it was installing?
Did you receive a big green X while it was updating? :S
yes it was refreshing and optimizing the application , then it did a series of reboots
so the triangular warning sign is normal. how long did it take for the whole process?
i started at exactly 12:01 and i was done by 12:59 .
Performed the upgrade in about 20 minutes. So far so good.
I been checking the servers from my phone for the update since midnight an nothing :/ I have 2 amazes one got the update instantly an the other isn’t…. Can someone help me
Big green X here as well…….wtf? Anyone know what this means?
Excellent, hopefully it comes to Mobilicity soon!
Question is there an issue with the update if your phone is rooted and running a custom rom
if you have a green X, just flash stock recovery no need to re-lock bootloader.
How do I flash stock recovery?
still havent recieved my update ! what should i do?
how do i flash it to stock??? mine is rooted
I fell into the same situation as yours.This link helped me restore my phone to ICS after removing cwm and setting recovery with stock.
I can’t seem to upgrade mine either, a green X just shows up on a black screen and stays like that
I got HTC Amaze 4G and the phone works like a charm.But my only concern is to root the ICS ROM so that i can have access to the system as an admin.Please help me on topics such as rooting and s-off.I am familiar with the so called wire trick.But am a little afraid to test it on my new phone.So anyone with any alternative methods do let me know.HTC amaze is a very good phone.The two things that are not good on the phone are its camera and battery life.
Downloaded update…took 3.5 hrs and will not install…any help out there?
Did upgrade…. Battery life is still the same ( which sucks). Phone conversation lasting 20 mins, another 12 mins and last one 26 mins phone was ded with yellow bar. Please do upgrade on battery life..
Since I downloaded ICS my text/message notification does not work anymore. My screen lights up, however no sounds at all. I’ve checked my settings and everything is set correctly.
Its working absolutely fine… better battery life… less memory consumption on internal ongoing processes.
I updated and now my messages won’t work…just keeps saying please wait…
how long did it take to fix that?
