T-Mobile ‘s HTC Amaze 4G Tastes Ice Cream Sandwich Thanks To A Leaked Update

HTC has started rolling out the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for quite a few of its handsets, including the Sensation, Sensation XE, and the Vivid 4G. There are still quite a lot of handsets from HTC, which are yet t get the ICS update, including the Rezound and Amaze 4G. The Rezound has had its fair share of Ice Cream Sandwich leaks, so chances are advanced users are already running ICS on their handset.

However, until now there had been no Ice Cream Sandwich firmware leaks for the T-Mobile Amaze 4G. Now, thanks to XDA member, football, Amaze 4G owners can get a taste of Ice Cream Sandwich with Sense 3.6 on top of it. Many users, who have already installed the RUU, have not complained about any bugs or serious issues. There is a very high probability that this leaked RUU might just be pushed out as an official OTA update in the upcoming weeks.

To install the leaked RUU manually, users need to make sure they have S-OFF, an ENG HBOOT and a locked bootloader. Ironically, S-OFF for the Amaze 4G along with a few other HTC handsets was made possible only this last weekend. The download link of the leaked ICS RUU, along with further discussions about it can be found here.
