Official ICS leaks out for the HTC EVO 3D

Official ICS leaks out for the HTC EVO 3D
While many great developers have tried their hand with the HTC EVO 3D and there have been several semi-functional Android 4.0 ROMs available, the unique camera library for the device has prevented a proper daily driver.  These tricky libraries have caused much frustration to owners and developers alike, and while several other HTC devices have seen ICS leaks, many users have felt that the EVO 3D was being left behind.  Fret no more, because early this evening a leak emerged from an unlikely source and developers already have a full ICS ROM available.  Team Virtuous at RootzWiki got their hands on a leaked Virgin Mobile build, of all things.  Sprint recently confirmed that WiMax would live on in their prepaid branch and it appears the venerable EVO 3D will help carry that torch.

This leaked build is Android 4.0.3 with Sense 3.6.  The process is relatively simple, especially for H-Boot 1.4 users, but does require a firmware upgrade before you can flash the ROM.  As usual, JoelZ9614 was the first to get a functioning ROM out of this but no doubt other developers will be hard at work this weekend bringing new ROMs to the table as well as updating older ICS attempts with working 4G and camera.  We've been running Joel's build for about an hour now with only one minor reboot in the beginning, but otherwise its been perfect.  Still, since this isn't an official release expect a few bugs while developers iron out the kinks.

This phone is awesome. A lot of people stayed away because of the 3D "gimmick", but even without 3D, it had one of the fastest processors and great performance. I bought it the day it came out and there really isn't a phone coming out that I like enough that would make me get rid of this one. I can't wait for ICS.

Bout damn time. The devs (Joelz, aaronpoweruser, twisted umbrella, Newts, toast, etc.) have been working around the clock to get it working. They actually got the FFC and rear camera (rear only in green preview) to actually work. All I can say is ABOUT TIME!

While all you Samspunge fanboys and apple iBoys argue about how billy bad ass you think your phones are us EVO 3D owners are sitting back in the cut perfectly happy and proud of our 3d's, perfectly content and have no need to upgrade to something anytime soon.
