The HTC Thunderbolt has been the buggiest handset released by HTC in the last year and a half. The handset was updated from Froyo to Gingerbread, but many doubted it would see an official Ice Cream Sandwich update after HTC decided to scratch the HTC Desire HD from the list.
Fortunately, a new ROM based on the official 7.00.605.2 Android 4.0.3 build for the HTC Thunderbolt has just surfaced, giving us hope that HTC will in fact release the update within the coming weeks. Like most of the Android 4.0 updates HTC has been rolling out, the new build for the Thunderbolt includes HTC Sense 3.6, re-sizeable widgets, Face Unlock, a new Quick Settings tab in the notification panel and improvements to Android’s multi-tasking capabilities.
HTC promised to release the Android 4.0 update for the HTC Thunderbolt before the end of August, giving them and Verizon just nine more days to finish up testing and start pushing out the OTA update. If you don’t have a rooted device, we suggest you sit tight and wait for Verizon to release the official OTA update.
Do you think HTC and Verizon will be able to release the Android 4.0 update for the HTC Thunderbolt on schedule?
