    Start with this:

    [Exclusive Download] HTC Rezound Ice Cream Sandwich RUU For Final OTA (3.14.605.12)

    And, your bootloader will need to be locked or relocked.

    Should you upgrade to ICS?

    Yes.
    If you want a reason...see below.

    I have zero complaints, zero problems and there are nice improvements sprinkled around everywhere.
    I haven't had to factory restore or reboot numerous times or anything. I'm not sure why some folks are saying they had to. And my battery life is fine, no issues.
    Some folks are always going to complain about an operating system and in a good number of those cases, it's not the OS's fault...and I'll leave it at that.

    Some things you may notice in ICS:
    • Gmail interface is better.
    • Google Maps Navigation is better.
    • The OS runs a little smoother.
    • You can disable pre-installed apps.
    • Boot time is quicker.
    • Swipe to remove notifications.
    • Voice recognition is much improved.
    • My Google Voice app runs much smoother and doesn't occasionally hang when sending a text like it did on GB.
    There are other improvements as well...and there are other things you won't see or notice that are on the back end, behind the scenes.

    Stay current. Upgrade.

    Windows 98? How long has that been out? I'm still on 95
    Seriously though,I had some problems initially, didn't root, didn't factory reset but after a week of messing with this and that the only problems are some apps aren't ICS ready and I'm seeking alternatives that are. As far as battery life, mine is about the same as GB but though my battery runs a smidgen warmer when idle it's a LOT cooler when being used. No more 130+f when watching a video over 4g. I've found the phone overall to be snappier, the screen to be sharper but the fonts smaller.
    Again, the problems I had turned out to be apps misbehaving.

If you take the plunge to ICS, factory default the phone afterwards or flash the RUU (which will wipe the phone).

    My vote, is upgrade, well worth it!!!
    Couldn't agree more! Listen to ace.....

    I flashed the .10 and the .12 ruu. When I flashed the .12 I flashed it different than any other one I have done.

    *wiped cache
    *factory reset
    *go in uncheck fastboot
    *flash the ruu twice (remember after the first flash to uncheck fastboot again).
    *factory reset

    *** some may think its over kill but it seems to be the cleanest flash I've ever done. I will do all of mine this way from now on. Very happy with .12

    ICS is good, not perfect, and you might have problems so be prepared to factory reset... The best way to upgrade is download the RUU and flash it in hboot, it is SUPER EASY, it will wipe your phone (do a factory default) as part of the process, but I don't think I have seen ANYONE who was bone-stock post that this failed for them or they had the same problems as the OTA update. Then you don't even have to root to debloat, that function is built directly into ICS!
    LOL Ace and Howard you guys are funny. Ace- I did the factory reset...with only one change. I can see that I have 6 different skins to pick from none of which I use LOL I still don't get notifications and have to restart my phone when a msg won't send. But i suppose eventually some of the glitches will work themselves out...so i hope
