T-Mobile HTC Amaze 4G Android 4.0 update now available

T-Mobile HTC Amaze 4G Android 4.0 update now available

Android 4.0 for the T-Mobile HTC Amaze 4G has arrived. HTC Amaze 4G owners can now manually download the Android 4.0 update to their phones by pressing Menu > Settings > About Phone > HTC Software Updates > Check. After the download starts, follow the on-screen instructions to finish the installation process.

After the update has installed, the HTC Amaze 4G will be running on Android 4.0.3 with HTC Sense 3.6. There are plenty of new software features included in the Ice Cream Sandwich update (face-unlock, new folders, improved multi-tasking), but most users will instantly recognize the UI changes delivered by the latest version of Sense. The new UI is much lighter than the previous iteration and should deliver a smoother experience and enhanced performance.

Before you begin the update process, we recommend you have at least a 50% battery charge on your device. Let us know how the installation process goes and if you run into any issues with the update. We’re sure you’ll enjoy all the new features, but be sure to leave us a comment and let us know what you like the most in the Android 4.0 update for the HTC Amaze.

  • Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • Sense 3.6
  • System bar enhancements to easily view recent apps.
  • Re-sizeable widgets
  • Lock screen actions including pull down notifications and adjust volume while device is locked.
  • Data usage controls.
  • Face Unlock
  • Home screen folders
  • Improved battery life
  • Improved text input and spell checking
  • Improved menu structure

Full details of the HTC Amaze 4G’s Android 4.0 update can be found on the T-Mobile’s support site.

    Definitly happy about the update, it seemed like I was waiting forever! Like all the new features , but most of all the better system performance. The resizable widgets feature needs work though. At first I thought it didn’t work, but found out it only worked with few widgets, mainly ones that come pre-installed I guess? Also love the ability to disable pre installed apps! As far as battery life goes however, I haven’t noticed much of a difference, which was somewhat dissapointing because I love this phone but battery life is a downfall of the amaze.

    Installed HTC Amaze Android 4 update and have had lots of problems. Much slower; goes back to splash screen when changing any function; cannot change ringtones for contacts; etc.

      i bought my htc ruby (aka htc amaze in the USA-T-Mobile) brand new at Amazon.com lst year, and i have same problem like yours. i called htc and t-mobile in the USA many times, they said it’s Singapore phone, so i can’t upgrade to ICS. one htc guy even asked me to root the phone and get some kind of 3rd party roms! what an idiot! this one really sucks. my phone is pure htc, not rooted. i hope htc or phone company can put this ics rom file on their website and let people who own htc ruby/amaze download it.i paid $500 for this phone and i believe my htc ruby deserves an upgrade!

    Only t-mobile logo HTC amaze will get official android 4 update OTA, so please don’t expect or wait for any update once you have no t-mobile phone. Yes you can update by rooting and installing that t-mobile rom by yourself.

    I guess HTC are laughing their asses off selling a phone as upgradable, people buying it, and later finding out that they have been cheated.
    Nice going, HTC. Same crap as always.
