One more device was added to the growing list of devices that are set to receive the Ice Cream Sandwich Android update. The HTC EVO 3D was added to the list of devices as this recent official Android 4.0 upgrade from HTC (TPE:2498) was leaked recently. Although HTC EVO 3D owners can take advantage of the ported ROMs and other unofficial upgrades, the most recent Android 4.0 upgrade for the device is reported an official Ice Cream Sandwich build from HTC.
The leaked Android 4.0 upgrade for the HTC EVO 3D comes in the form of an RUU file. This most recent leaked Android 4.0 upgrade is released as one of the proprietary ROM Update Utilities of HTC, which is a ROM and an installer that is placed in a Windows EXE file. All users of the HTC EVO 3D have to do is to put their devices in debug mode then plug it into a computer.
The RUU file of the Android 4.0 upgrade for the HTC EVO 3D is considered safer compared IMG files.
It will be necessary for users to have the appropriate drivers before they will run the program. However HTC EVO 3D owners should take into consideration that in principle using this leaked Android 4.0 upgrade will void the warranty of their devices. But once the official over-the-air update is released, they will not have to worry about it.
This recently-leaked Android 4.0 upgrade for the HTC EVO 3D will likely come with the same HTC Sense 3.6 custom user interface that is currently being used on older models of HTC phones that have received the latest version of the Android mobile platform.
Although some reports have hinted that this leaked Android 4.0 upgrade for the HTC EVO 3D is not yet finished some industry watchers believe that this is already the final version of the Ice Cream Sandwich update for the device.
