Ice Cream Sandwich Update for the HTC Sensation XE is Available Now!

Posted:  March 27, 2012   By:    43 comments   


The title is self-explanatory. Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich goodness for the HTC Sensation XE is now available in Malaysia complete with a refreshed version of HTC’s Sense UI skin (version 3.6) as well.

To get it, go to “Software Updates” button under the “Settings” menu. The update is nearly 300MB big, so WiFi connectivity is always a good idea to ensure a smooth and speedy update.

If you got screen grabs of the HTC Sense 3.6 with ICS, do share it with us. If you want, do a video review and send us the YouTube link. If its decent, we’ll post it up for you.

Enjoy and special thanks to @chandelierpop for the picture, also to Deva and uuusiew for the headsup. You guys are so stupendously awesome!

i have updated my sensation XE but ICS doesn't seem to be working nicely. when i exit any application, blank white screen with HTC logo in the centre – usually when an error occurs, white screen will appear – pops out and i will be directed to my home screen. it happens so often i think none of it works for my phone. i tried to change my wallpaper through setting and the same issue occurs. i don't know whether it is a bug or my phone isn't compatible with ICS. i understand sensation was named as the first among last year's releases that would be getting ICS and new sense, so i find it odd if it doesn't work as it supposed to. if anyone is experiencing similar issue, i will be glad if you guys can share it here.

      Thank you very much. You saved my phone of getting smashed by a hummer :))

    Will

    That was exactly my problem, too. I unchecked the "Don't Keep Activities" box under Develop Options and it worked fine after that.

    hi there! i just updated my sgs2 to ICS 4.0.3 last Sunday.. try updating your Kies and connect the phone. I think our region should have ICS update already.. Anyway, the update for sgs2 is less "pure ICS" compared to Galaxy Nexus.. Cheers! 😉

Deva

guys..I have been trying to do the screen capture using Power and Volume Down button but its not working,,Anybody else succeeded? Thanks,

    ntgbettertodo

    screen capture? i thought it is power button and home button?

      poingkuro

      I thought that is when you use custom Rom or Rom from other country. For Asia, power button + volume down button.

    ykee

    The trick is on the timing. I got mine working.

i wonder if anyone experience this prob. all the contact pictures in my whatsapp gone. now everyone in my whatsapp contact list is the android logo.

Deva

It was supposed to be changed to Home and Volume down for ICS,,I guess HTC stuck with the Home and Power button…

ncliang

any one experience the hp keeps restarting itself and each restart, it will say android is updating and it optimize application…
using sensation xe..any idea

    mrC

    hi ya i get the exact same problem, every time i turn it off and back on it says updating & optimizing applications, what about a factory reset. any ideas would be appreciated.

    ykee

    just let it runs, it will eventually finished.

      mem

      How much does it take to stop doing updating and optimizing? Will it go away by itself??

Does anyone's XE+ICS kept receiving SMSes from telco switches/base stations after upgrade?

Karrar

My wifi also stopped working after the update'!

I got a sensation xe and i'm having real trouble with usb tethering. It normally gives me an option of what to select and then the icon is in the notification window saying that usb tehering option is slected. After that, it normally installs itself as a network connection.

It's now not showing as a network connection after ICS update. Anyone else having this same trouble?

I uninstalled drivers from PC, and went into boatloader to recover phone. I then re-installed drivers again and it picked up the phone and i was able to tether again. The next day it didn't work again!
