The software update has arrived, and I’m currently downloading the ICS (Android 4.0) onto my HTC Phone. At a whopping 282.88MB its not going to to be over quickly. Because I live in such a remote area the only option for me is to download it over my wi-fi which isn’t too bad, and it means I’m not using any of my Data Allowance from Vodafone UK. I’d Suggest starting the process with a fully charged battery (I have mine plugged in while downloading) Wouldn’t want the phone battery to run out of juice just at the end of the update!!

20-ish minutes later, the download is complete, the download is verified and now the final question asking me if I want to continue… lets do this! pressed “OK” and the phone shuts down and restarts to a splash screen showing the progress of the update… 50% so far and the wee green bar is still moving.

A few minutes later and the progress bar is at 100% and its stopped to have a little think, I guess it’s deciding what to do next (I hope!).

Oooooh! A quick restart and now the green update symbol is a cool aqua blue I’d call it, definite signs of activity, and now another progress bar, this one is jumping in big chunks and onlyl took 30seconds or so.

Back to the HTC Splash Screen, and then a quick flash of a progress bar and now we are rebooting, and theres the Beats Audio splash screen!

Now it says Android is Upgrading. orly? hehe. Optimising applications.

And there we go, as simple as that! Congratulations! YOur phone has been updated successfully to version 3.32.401.105!

 

Initial thoughts, looks like a new phone! now its play time!
