    Well they have posted it up again. The info about the impending ics update was posted on htc again. Don't get to excited. Verizon hasn't said a thing. My guess is still an early August release. My guess is htc is trying to make a point that they are good to go. So now its on Verizon......better not hold your breath

    I heard we'd be getting ICS early(or late) summer....2013, just after Krispy Kreme is released.:blink:

    Just in case I made sure that my pics and music were backed up. When it finally hits I really hope that it is the last leak. I'm always worried that VZ will mess it up by disabling some features that came with the leak like freezing bloat.

    The leak wiped the internal sd, but left the sd card alone.

    that was my experience.

    I really wanted the OTA,
    but after finally installing the leak
    which works so very well,
    my feelings are who needs Verizon, their games, and their beloved OTA?

    I'd fall over laughing if Verizon handed out a download URL to an RUU instead of sending the update OTA.

    I bet HTC does all the upgrade work, and Verizon just adds bloat and has the final QA signoff.

    Or more likely Verizon isn't smart enough to add the bloat, and gets HTC to do it?

    Verizon is just an unnecessary broken gear in the machinery.

    I think my next phone will be a Google nexus device

    NO, it has nothing to do with the external sd card, why would it.

    I have read that some galaxy nexus owners are complaining about Verizon holding up the jelly beans OTA.

    Maybe we chose the wrong cell phone company?

    I thought the reason for the nexus was to bypass Verizon and Samsung, that updates came straight from Google.

    You can only bypass Verizon if you did the update via download. If they do it via OTA then they need Verizon. I say all updates should be downloaded and if Verizon wants their software put it on Google play.

    Just putting it out there, but the Bionic was waiting for an OTA a few months after it came out. There were probably 4-5 leaks or so prior, and it was actually the second one that was the official OTA. So it's possible a leak will be the official version, but it might not be the latest. Just fyi...

    I have faith in this rumor though, this is about the time they've been saying since January, end of Q2 ish, so I'm going to stay optimistic. It's actually pretty easy when you just sit back and enjoy Gingerbread with a hint of TSF shell...

    Actually I meant fingerprints on the updates not delivery method. Are you saying Verizon decides when and what Nexus updates look like?
    My wifi Galaxy Tab is still awaiting Samsung to push their ics update as well. I can't blame that on Verizon since it's not carrier supported and I actually don't think Samsung is totally at fault.

    About the Nexus, I am only saying Verizon determines when the OTA is pushed. Any maker that needs a carrier to push an update is at there mercy.

    My guess is that when Verizon stops selling the HTC rezound Verizon will simultaneously stop fussing over the ICS OTA, and it just won't happen at all. why bother when the phone is out of production?

    Because of the two "leaks", I'm betting 10 to 1 that the version HTC posted is the same as the OTA -- I was confident about it the first time, but after it happened again, there's no doubt in my mind.
