Optus has just announced that the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for the HTC Incredible S has begun to roll out. It’s a staggered roll out with all users expected to get the update over the next couple of weeks.

The update is sized at 300MB so we’re going to urge you to download it over Wi-Fi and with a full, or close to, battery. If you’re eager for the update, go to settings and check for the update manually, you’re likely to get it earlier that way. Let us know how it goes in the comments!

      well it IS brilliant and exactly what the Incredible needed all along. I struggled with patchy operation since I bought my HTC 9 months ago but with this ICS is now great. Smooth scrolling, more available ram and the slickness that is the ICS interface. :)

      Same here – downloaded the update and froze on HTC logo screen when rebooting. It’s bricked – couldn’t recover, couldn’t reset to factory settings. Taking it back to the store today – we can’t be the only ones?

    Did a manual search for updated software….updating now! wohoo…finally!

  • BigDave

    Got ICS about a month ago on Virgin. If your mobile internet stopped, you will have to manually re-enter the APN for your phone network, I had to. I prefer Sense 3.6 over the older GB version.

      Hi Dave how did you get the update? Have you rooted your phone or did you somehow get OTA early?

  • Ramen

    Finally got it but are you guys having problem when trying to call someone like there’s a delay or it’s just my phone

  • Davie

    Bricked. Update was applied while battery was fully charged & I was on WIFI. Now phone is bricked. Standard recovery processes via bootloader and factory reset do not work.
    NOT HAPPY !

  • MattyG

    Update completed without a hitch. I checked making calls and using apps and so far no problems after a few hours of checking.

  • Anoid 4.04

    This is really ******. The update ships with the default setting to shutdown wifi when asleep, and then the OS goes and downloads a heap of data in the background. Blown my data limit in one weekend.
