Android 4.0 update confirmed for the HTC Flyer
As you know, HTC Flyer and Evo View 4G have recently received Honeycomb via an update. For some users this update may be a disappointment because the user experience is completely changed. It is worth mentioning some disadvantages such as loss of physical buttons for the benefit of virtual permanent buttons and a new launcher which changed the home screen grid and HTC’s Sense widgets that many of us have come to love over the years.
Many people have contacted us to learn how to go back to Gingerbread. Advanced users know that downgrading to Gingerbread is an option if you can get your hands on the right RUU, but taking matters into your own hands is always a bit scary if you’re not 100% sure of what you are doing.
So are there any other options?
HTC-Hub contacted HTC to get more information and were have been told that there are a lot of people requesting to get back Gingerbread. Anyone who’s not satisfied with the Honeycomb update on the HTC Flyer can get back Android 2.3 by sending the tablet to the HTC’s costumer service. Furthermore, the HTC customer service rep advised them to wait Ice Cream Sandwich whle noting that the update should be available within the next few months.
… or you wait for the update Ice Cream Sandwich [...] first quarter of this year.
This is the first “confirmation” from HTC that the Flyer will be updated to Android 4.0. We’re not sure how reliable HTC customer service rep knowledge is when it comes to system updates which have not been announced yet, but we’re ghoing to assume that someone working for HTC knows more than most. We’ll bring you more details once they are available. Stay tuned.
