Here's Why The HTC Desire HD Won't Get Android ICS

By 12:04 Wed, 14 Jul 2021 Comments

With last week's announcement that the highly revered HTC Desire HD won't receive an official update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich causing quite a stir, the Taiwanese company has posted the reasons for the decision in its blog. The biggest issue according to HTC, has been the risk of users losing their personal data during the update process.

Apparently, the larger size of Android ICS would require repartitioning the handset's internal space and, therefore, cautilize the abovementioned danger. HTC considered reducing the overall size of the package, but came to the conclusion that such a go would impact the phone's functionality, so, alas, the decision was taken to leave the Desire HD in the land of Gingerbread. Sounds like a lame excutilize to us, what do you say?

Update, July 29: Our readers (thanks, Uzair) were quick to point out, the XDA community has already made available for the Desire HD an ICS Read-Only Memory (ROM) based on Cyanogenmod 9 and a Jelly Bean ROM, based on the beta Cyanogenmod 10.
