While the HTC Thunberbolt may be getting the unfortunate shaft when it comes to an official Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade, the development community always has your back.
LiquidSmooth ICS, an AOSP-based ROM with a lot of great tweaks, customization and features, has finally been made available for Verizon’s first 4G LTE device.
This is being called a milestone release, which means this thing has taken tremendous strides from the earlier work we’ve seen.Take a look at the latest changes, and just a couple of things which are still broken:
-MMS Now Works
-Torch Has Been Fixed
-RIL/System Files Heavily Modified
-1x/3G/4G Shows & Works Correctly
-Updated/Tweaked the Menu Settings
-Now is REL, Fixes Google Music, Etc..
-Kernel & ROM Optimized and Compiled With Linaro
-First AOSP ICS ROM For Thunderbolt With Working RIL/Data
Video Camera Still Broke
Netflix Broke As Well
Hopefully those two issues get ironed out before too long, but this is, without a shadow of doubt, one of the best daily drivers you’re going to find in Ice Cream Sandwich form for the HTC Thunderbolt right now. If you’re rooted with a custom recovery be sure to head to XDA for the instructions and downloads. [via Droid-Life[
