New ICS ROM leaked for the HTC EVO 3D

Owners of the HTC EVO 3D are clearly selective consumer who only appreciate smartphone hardware with 50% more dimensions than the standard two. Think how much more they'll appreciate them with Ice Cream Sandwich. Yes, in addition to ported ROMs and other leaks, you can now try out HTC's official Android 4.0 build, by way of an RUU file. Many thanks to BriefMobile, who leaked and posted the file themselves.

Sony confirms: no Ice Cream Sandwich for the Xperia PLAY

Android gamers, I've got some bad news for you: that issue earlier this week that saw the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY removed from Sony's Ice Cream Sandwich update list has been confirmed. In a press statement today, Sony said that they were opting not to release a final Ice Cream Sandwich ROM, on the basis that a stable experience for both phone functions and gaming cannot be achieved on the older hardware.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus 4.0.4 update available for download now

We reported a rumor on Monday that Verizon was preparing a long, long overdue Android 4.0.4 update for the Galaxy Nexus, which has been officially stuck on 4.0.2 since it's release. Obviously the OTA update didn't happen yesterday, but Google seems to be just as tired of the run-around as we are, because they've posted the relevant update file on their own servers. Stock Galaxy Nexus users, get it now, before Verizon decides that up-to-date software isn't appropriate.

Rumor: Verizon Galaxy Nexus 4.0.4 update coming tomorrow

It's been almost six months since Verizon released its LTE version of the Galaxy Nexus, and in all that time the majority of users have been stuck on Android version 4.0.2.  Meanwhile, the rest of the official developer devices (you know, the ones that Google "officially" supports) got updated to 4.0.3 and 4.0.4 ages ago. Now unconfirmed rumors are  saying that tomorrow (May 22nd) is the day that it'll finally land.

T-Mobile sends out HTC Amaze 4G ICS update

The HTC Amaze 4G may or may not be currently blocked at US Customs, but those of you who've already got your hands on one should check for an official update now. True to their word, T-Mobile is sending out the Ice Cream Sandwich update today. You can download the software by tapping the "about phone" section of your phone and then selecting "System update". If you don't, you'll probably see a pop-up message in the next few days.

LG Revolution gets updated Gingerbread release

Let's get this right out of the way: Verizon's latest release for the LG Revolution is not, repeat not, Ice Cream Sandwich. There, we're done. That being said, there's quite a bit of new stuff in the latest update, and Revolution owners who are still on the stock software will want to upgrade immediately. Build VS910zV9 brings some important security fixes along with the usual speed and stability improvements.

T-Mobile’s “free” tethering ends with ICS upgrades

HTC Sensation 4G owners were thrilled to find out that their Ice Cream Sandwich update was finally coming from T-Mobile this week - tomorrow, in fact. But PCMag spotted a frustrating caveat in the official support document: you won't be able to use the "4G Hotspot" function for free anymore. Users who wish to share their connection will have to fork over $14.95 a month for the official tethering plan, allowing them to "officially" use the WiFi hotspot or USB data tether.

Official: T-Mobile Sensation 4G ICS update coming May 16th

T-Mobile's been pretty sparing when it comes to firm news on Ice Cream Sandwich updates, but their streak of silence ends today. The carrier announced that it intends to update the HTC Sensation 4G to Android 4.0 on May 16th, just two days from now. They also stated that the newer Amaze 4G would be getting its own update "in the coming weeks". We'd previously heard that it was scheduled for mid-June.

LG Spectrum set for major update – no ICS yet

Hey, Verizon, LG? When it comes to Android updates, there's only one thing enthusiasts want: Ice Cream Sandwich. That little mini-rant out of the way, LG's Verizon flagship Spectrum is getting an update to its Gingerbread software, rolling out as of now. If you're rocking the Verizon-branded version of the LG Optimus LTE, check your settings menu for an over-the-air update. Those who don't should get a pop-up notification sometime within the next week or so. Even if it isn't the frozen goodness that everyone wants, there's enough here to make it worth your while for a lengthy 127 megabyte download. In addition to the usual speed and stability improvements, a critical flaw in the WiFi scanning which caused numerous force-closes has been fixed. Other persistent problems like incorrect calendar notifications, a faster browser APK and smoother search. Of course, the pack-in software gets an overhaul as well. Apps like VZ Navigator (seriously, why does any carrier include a navigation app on an Android device?) NFL Mobile and Verizon Video all get manual updates. Still, the list of bug fixes should rule out any problems with Verizon and LG's bloatware. Have fun, Spectrum owners - and remember that LG should have an upgrade to ICS. Eventually.
