Verizon unveils support documents for HTC Rezound system update

htc_rezound_update

According to a new support document for the HTC Rezound which just went live on Verizon’s website, the handset will soon be getting a new software update. I know we’re all eagerly waiting to see which (non-Nexus) handset will be the first to be updated from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich, but unfortunately this is not the update you are looking for.

The new 2.01.605.11 software build for the HTC Rezound is a minor update intended to fix a few issues with the handst’s various radios and improve the Rezound’s software stability.

As of now, we don’t know how large the update is or when Verizon plans on rolling out the 2.01.605.11 software build to the HTC Rezound. Verizon is typically good at sending out minor software updatres to HTC’s phones just as long as it’s not the HTC Thunderbolt.

Check out the list below to see all the features being addressed in this latest system update for the HTC Rezound or you can read the official support PDF from Verizon’s website.

  • Updated signal strength meter to 5 bar Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI).
  • Screen Timeout issues while connected to Wi-Fi have been resolved.
  • Resolved issue with Mobile Hotspot data stalling while multiple users are connected.
  • Improved audio quality during voice call.
  • Reduced forced closures related to the People application.
  • Improved device stability reduces continuous reset
  • Resolved issue with Task Manager stopping Mail background service
How much longer do you think we’ll have to wait until we see HTC or any other OEM roll out an official Android 4.0 to any of their phones?

    Good to see them issuing bug fixes in a timely manner. Thunderbolt never got a fix so quickly.

      Two months is timely for that little bug fix release? I must have high standards.

    It’s odd that they almost seem reluctant to be get out ICS handsets. Maybe they’re all waiting until they think the competition are ready to go with this. I love ICS but there are still a few apps that have yet to be updated, or that have issues.

    At the moment it’s only early adopters with the Nexus and those with custom ROMs who have access who are probably more understanding of these issues. Maybe their fear is that whoever releases first will get a lot of “my favourite app isn’t working” complaints.

    Or maybe it’s just more complicated to put their own UI on top of ICS so it’s taking longer to come to terms with and test (it feels like a much bigger step in terms of OS than previous updates).

      Gingerbread was the same way I think. It took a long time for it to get out to the top phones and WAYYYYY longer to make it to the phones that were no longer the top of the line/new and shiny.

      I’m ok with the wait because it means that they’re finding bugs and fixing them.

      It’s all about timing. HTC, Sony and everyone else are probably fixing the last few issues with their ICS updates right about now, but since carriers typically test new updates for 8-16 weeks before they are rolled out I wouldn’t be surprised if the first releases are not pushed out until Q2 of this year.

  • spazby

    Keep those updates coming…

  • Juan Almanzar

    I wish they would release updates for the radios in the Nexus Galaxy. The rezound seems to always pull a better signal then its Samsung counterparts.

  • yankeesusa

    This is a really nice phone. I wish they had it for sprint. Its sleek and has everything you need. Plus I just read that this phone can do global sim cards with a tweak from xda so its a world phone too not to mention it will do lte roaming in other countries. HTC is awesome on making sure their phones are updated. I just hope they start updating phones to ICS soon.

  • brklynmind

    I hope HTC delays ICS as long as it takes to make it good – because right now it is a step backward in many areas of UI
