We recently posted the leaked version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich for the HTC Amaze 4G but now it will finally be officially released May 21. While we expected the official release to have Sense 4 that has been seen on the HTC One its not there yet. The update brings the OS to Android 4.0 ICS and Sense to version 3.6. This also brings the HTC Amaze 4G to software version 2.14.531.3710RD.

If you don’t get the OTA (over the air) update on May 21st you can manually install the update to your HTC Amaze 4G. To manually update go to “Settings -> About Phone -> HTC Software Updates -> Check Now“. The update is pretty big and will take about 20 minutes according to HTC over your data connection so you may want to connect to WiFi.
The HTC Amaze 4G is getting an OTA (over the air) update now to fix various bugs and Wifi calling. Some of the bugs that are being repaired you will not notice although there are a few features that will be improved or fixed besides Wifi calling.
HTC Amaze 4G Update Features:
Bluetooth connection improvements
Clock widget fix for time zone change
Twitter application improvements
Wifi connection improvements
While this isn’t a huge update to say a new OS or anything the update is worth it for the Wifi calling feature. If you aren’t getting the update yet you can always manually check. Either way be patient it will be on your Amaze 4G in no time.
