    Tonight a new Rezound update support page went up on Verizon's website, meaning a new update is on the wires. This update is sadly not going to give you face logging-in like you'd get with the leaked ICS update that is being tested for this device, rather it just fixes some issues. Here are the issues that this update address:

    • Updated signal strength meter to 5 bar Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI).
    • Screen Timeout issues while connected to Wifi have been resolved.
    • Resolved issue with Mobile Hotspot data stalling while multiple users are connected.
    • Improved audio quality during voice call.
    • Reduced forced closures related to the People application.
    • Improved device stability reduces continuous resets.
    • Resolved issue with Task Manager stopping Mail background service.
    Hopefully if you're having any issues with your Rezound, this update will fix them.

    We'll see multiple stable ICS roms long before VZW approves a push.

    There are several stable ICS ROMS out now if you're rooted.

    Most of them aren't ready for prime time, though.

    How can I take the update if I'm rooted and unlocked? Can I push some sort of unroot command? Also, can I take the OTA if I'm unlocked, not rooted?

    Main problem I've been having is a popup saying The process com.htc.bg has stopped unexpectedly.Please try again. Force close.Hope the update fixes that, bg may mean background not sure.My wife's rezound doesn't do that just mine.

    Anyone get this update yet? Does OTA Rootkeeper work? Do you need to unfreeze software first?

    I am so debating getting this phone in a few days. I am hoping so much that this phone is good.

    This phone is awesome! Being unlocked with custom kernels as well makes this phone fun. Best phone I've had (previous phones were Bionic and DX).

    I think you'll love it as well.

    It might still be a few days maybe even into next week before we see it pushed out, hopefully with them publishing the update it will be sooner rather than later. I might return back to stock to check this update out. should be a solid update

    They are not really stable. Plenty of bugs and things that don't work yet, which is to be expected this early in the game...

    Just got my Rezound yesterday after my 4th Bionic. Do the kernals really help with battery life? I'm seeing stock battery doesn't last very long.

    Kernels have the potential to help with battery life, yes. But not always, depending on what governor you use and how you use the phone.

    I was never able to test out the battery life, as the ROMs I tried had other issues, like no corporate exchange email, etc...

    The problem is that it takes a long time to get a really nice ROM. Just grabbing the leak and hacking it and adding a few mods and ripping out some bloat usually breaks some things in the process... and it takes several weeks of people like us installing the ROMs and reporting back all the crap that is broken and doesn't work, for the Devs to start fixing things and make it into what I would consider as a daily driver.

    I have tried a gazillion ROM's over the past year on the DX, the TBolt and a couple on the Rezound. Call me biased, but I have yet to use anything as good as CyanogenMod... There are some talented Devs doing cool things to the Rezound, but I have not seen any that I would consider ready for prime time. Camera issues, battery and charging issues, all sorts of little bugs...

    To me it isn't worth putting up with that stuff, just to be able to say "I have ICS"... Unless I have the full use of my phone, having ICS is no benefit to me. it's only a benefit if it works. I can use Go Launcher and Go Locker and use ICS themes and have it look like ICS, but actually work properly....

    I've enjoyed the phone so far. Had some data issues but they've been fixed. I haven't had any of the problems listed here though. Looking forward to this update and ICS as well. Battery life is awful though.

    I actually get solid battery life from just unlocking and rooting, and then using Scott's tool to get rid of a crap ton of bloat. That seemed to help a lot.
