AT&T and HTC may not be ready to push out the Android 4.0 update for the HTC Vivid quite yet, but forum members over at Android Central have figured out a way to manually trigger the update directly from the phone. If you own the AT&T HTC Vivid, simply type *#*#682#*#* in your phones dialer and you should notice an update notification appear within a few minutes.
The 314MB update comes packaged with HTC Sense 3.6 and should deliver that same functionality we saw with the HTC Velocity Ice Cream Sandwich update which was pushed out a few days ago.
As with the HTC Velocity and HTC Sensation, the Vivid’s Android 4.0 update should be accompanied by a significant performance improvement. So what are you waiting for? Dial the special code from your HTC Vivid and let us know what you think of the new update.
Note: AT&T denies that the Android 4.0 update for the HTC vivid is currently being rolled out. We are not sure how long the manual dialer trick will work, but we wouldn’t be surprised if AT&T put a stop to it.
