If you are an owner of the HTC Rezound you just might be interested to know that there is a new Android Ice Cream Sandwich update availble for the HTC Rezound, and is Android 4.0.3 build 3.13.605.7, an update that sorts out a few problems with the device, although apparently the update wont be available over the air.

According to the guys over at Android Police, they have the exclusive download available, so if you do wish to download the Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 build to your HTC Rezound you’ll need to hit up their website.

The guys have also come up with the changelog, so here is what is fixed in the Android 4.0.3 update…

Camera dark when using Facebook, text field difficult to read, OTA SW update time, OTA over incorrect APN, Flash Player removed, BUA+ (multiple issues), “set current date” frequently popping up, car dock limiting charging current, Exchange mail account removed after FOTA, Hotspot turning off after 10-minutes, camera failing to launch, “Android updating” message on power up, resets, roaming charges when in Mexico and Canada, and Facebook force close when you tap a video album.

A word of warning, if you use the HTC Bootloader unlock tool this will not work, the handset must be fully stock with a locked bootloader, or you must have S-Off.

So to download and install to your HTC Rezound, you need to download the PH981IMG.zip file, then put the renamed file onto the root of the SD card, power down the handset, reboot into the bootloader by holding VOL DOWN + power, and the flashing should start immediately, and once the handset reboots you are done.

So there you go, if you do grab the Android 4.0.3 build 3.13.605.7 and give it a go on your HTC Rezound, feel free to let us know how it all goes by dropping us a line to our comments area below.

    A bit misleading. THIS is NOT the OTA version is what I read. Is that correct? The OTA will be different.

      Just a guy on the internet researching why my phone is now F#%d (ME), The OTA that VZ put out “bricked” (Verizon’s term) my phone. I called and they immediately overnight-ed a new one to me, which does not have ICS. Great I thought, now the phone

    no one know if the OTA will be different or not, but i would expect it to be. This is just a small step up from the previous leak, which works awesomely. Only time will tell.

    I spoke to a HTC Representative yesterday 05/02 and he confirmed the May 9th release date.  He did however add that the update will roll in batches and could take up to 22 days from the release date.

    Related to the article . you need to rename it to PH98IMG.zip … NO 1
    You must be locked or relocked and then place the dowload renamed to ph98img.zip on the external sd card then turn off the phone and turn it on with the volume down button held down.
    You have to then do that again after the update completes it only does half the first time.

    I have the file but what do you mean to the “root” of the sd? And when I go through the bootloader it just stays on the menu screen. HTC Rezound
