Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ROM for HTC Rezound

The HTC Rezound will be updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich once the latter is available. And though the first ICS updates are already being push out for other HTC handsets, we still don’t know when our Rezounds will be granted that opportunity. The excitement the idea of “Android 4.0 ICS” causes is so strong that you don’t want to wait until the smell of the cake reaches your nose too. One thing to be done in such situations is to access third party developers for custom ROMs.

The HTC Rezound got several early build ROMs with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich on board, but there were many bugs and users didn’t like it. Now I have gladsome news for you, as there is another ROM available. This ROM seems to be closer to the real deal, as it comes with fewer bugs and therefore with more improvements.
