We have great news this evening for all those fans still rocking the HTC ThunderBolt. Yup, Ice Cream Sandwich is finally here thanks to an official build that was apparently leaked. The actual update to Android 4.0.3 was leaked and a few awesome developers have made it into an easy to flash ROM for those interested.
Thanks to team BAMF you can enjoy the sweet and tasty treat before it melts waiting for Verizon to send it out. Ice Cream Sandwich ThunderBolt style is here right now. The folks from Droid-Life got word that this was finally available and we figured you’d all like to finally take a look at ICS.
So far everything looks pretty standard here and in line with other HTC devices that have received Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the recent past. You’ve been bumped to HTC Sense UI 3.6 but sadly no 4.0 like the One series. Also team BAMF was nice enough to remove all that HTC spyware and get rid of some of the bloat.
For now the HTC ThunderBolt crowd is still waiting for an official update from HTC and Verizon although it should be coming soon. Earlier this month HTC confirmed the update was still on track for “August” so we have a little more than a week at most of waiting — and hopefully nothing more. It’s worth noting this build is not rooted, so you’ll have to take those usual steps should you want root. Feel free to wait it out or give this a try from the link below.
