HTC-Amaze-4G-large

An Ice Cream Sandwich OS update for the HTC Amaze 4G handsets have been leaked, though we are not talking about the official version of the firmware. HTC announced that an OS upgrade will be soon released therefore until its launch you will have to get and install the software manually. If not, you can just wait and apply the same as usual, meaning that the ROM will be installed automatically (OTA- Over The Air). Anyway, don’t worry, as if you want to get the ICS experience sooner, than you can start following this step by step guide, which will show you how to manually update your HTC Amaze 4G to Android 4.0.3.

Before we start you must know that root access will be required for being able to apply this update. So, go and root your Amaze first. Also, ClockworkMod recovery should be installed on your device. Take notice that once you root the phone the warranty will be void. Be careful in what you do and try not to brick your handset. Just follow this tutorial and everything should be fine. Then, don’t forget to backup the data from your Amaze, as installing the ICS update will demand a full wipe of the system. It’s important to backup the current ROM too for being able to restore it just in case something wrong happens. If you don’t know how to deal with these stuffs just take a look over the list from below and follow the same. Make sure you complete the rest of the operations showed below too, as I have detailed the Pre Requisites; without these preparations procedures you will not be able to succeed.

Once you complete the up mentioned operations you can safely start applying the Ice Cream Sandwich update on your HTC Amaze 4G. Read carefully and do all as explained in the steps.
