HTC Inspire 4G

HTC has been busy trying to justify their lack of ICS on the Inspire 4G / Desire HD to users but that doesn't mean they've forgotten about the device entirely. AT&T Inspire 4G owners should soon see an update notification on their device or if you're unwilling to wait, you can download the RUU direct from the HTC website. As noted on their support site, the update has quite a few changes in it:

New features:

  • HTC Sense 3.0
  • Task Manager
  • AT&T Address Book


  • Call optimization improvements (fewer dropped calls)
  • Improved security functionality
  • SMS/MMS Thread – Contact Display Fix
  • Background Data Use Improvement

Even though it's not Android 4.0, it's still a nice update. Keep in mind, if you download the RUU you'll need HTC Sync installed and you'll lose all your current data on the device. With some patience though, you can just wait for the OTA update to arrive and don't forget to drop by the forums and let us know how things are working out.

If that's the case then they can keep. I'll stick to my CM7.2 rom.

I'll stick with the Rom I'm running. aospX ICS 4.0.4

Hehheh. I'll see your ICS and raise you a JB. Jellytime is, to me anyway, a daily driver now. Got Google Now and evrythin.

Though, I ran AOSPx for several months now and it was awesome, as well.

What rom are you using??

JellyTime for DHD/Inspire:

(Mostly) everything works. Bit quirky still. But stable enough for a daily driver, IMO.
