jeanpsf: Anyone have any idea when Telecom might push out an ICS update? I know some S2 owners who got it almost 3 weeks ago and am feeling jealous;-] looks so slick. I'd love to root it, but I hear about the risks of getting bricked.


I have a Telecom HTC Sensation as well....and I'm also a little green around the edges because the Vodafone Sensations got theirs over a month ago. 

I'm not in any rush...Android 2.3 does everything I want at this point...

But in a month or two I may consider rooting the phone and going off the reservation.

My Sensation is the Vodafone GSM model, on the VF network. I have recieved the OTA update for ICS. Not every time, but most times when I either turn my phone off or to restart it, it's like it has to update all the ICS files again, like the files are all in temporary memory and it has to reload them again.

Weird as anything. Doesn't affect the function of the phone, but just a bit annoying having to wait for it, when it happens.

Could it be that the warm boot is only about 9 seconds, but a cold boot is about 2 minutes...and if it reckons it needs to scan the storage media at some interval it may be doing that, too. I've seen my Sensation go into a sort of diagnostic mode on the way up (watching via logcat).....

It may just be that the phone is looking after you and avoiding potential problems with the hardware....especially read / write errors on the solid state storage. (I'm guessing because I've seen similar things on v2.3)

I had a look at his phone and it appears to be wiping the dalvik cache each reboot. I suggested a full reboot including a battery pull to see if it does anything. Might be a weird bug related to having the OTA but no factory reset.

Doing a battery pull reboot did the same thing.. wasn't any difference

So has anyone heard word on when the Sensation will be getting ICS? seems to be taking Telecom an awfully long time and I'm finding it hard to get any info out of them.

Just take the plunge and get a rooted ICS rom; they are stable as hell.

We're using insertcoin, but not finding it that stable at all - also both of our cameras (on separate Sensations) keep stuffing out.

What's everybody else using?

ARHD for me. Very stable! I have not found any issues at all with stability.

Cyanogenmod 9. It still has not had a stable release, but what custom ROM has? Still very stable however.

Mine (daily use until 2 weeks ago) ran older insertcoin without any issues.. I updated once tho and it broke things so i reverted to my backup.
Now running an s3 as daily phone.

So anyone from TelecomNZ care to reply about when ICS is coming about for the Sensation? Jellybean isn't far away and Gingerbread is so out of date... Seems pathetic having to wait this long for the update.

Does anyone have a link to a solid version of ICS to root my sensation with?

I get the same thing on mine (TNZ) but it seems to be that it's starting in verbose mode where before upgrading to ICS, it didn't. As far as I can tell, it takes the same amount of time to boot to the lockscreeen as when it was on GB, (I don't use fastboot) so no issue really. I'm using stock XE ROM on a bog standard Sensation and it's solid as. I might turn fastboot on to see what that does to stability and such but I don't reboot often enough for it to mean anything as far as my daily use is concerned.
