Now under "FILTER BY", choose your Desire S, then just below it select "OTHER" instead of "ALL". Now click on "FIND FILES" and download the one with "Android v4.0".
After downloading, extract and read instructions to install. That's all!

I've had this phone from contract in Nov 2011. It's still going but is showing its age now so I'm buying another handset on a sim only deal. The good news if you are still interested in this phone is the screen resolution, the stability, the rear cam in good light, the sd slot and of course the price (this was the flagship HTC phone in 2011/12 & now it goes for a song). The bad points are its now a bit slow for modern apps & internet, the battery is underpowered, it's not 4G, the front camera is poor & the flash on rear camera is unatural. Still a bargain though. I'm sticking with android but mugging off HTC for my next phone as the camera on the One M8 looks rubbish. I'm going with LG G2 as it ticks all the boxes I need. Good luck with your phone purchase guys!

I had updated my desire s to ICS.
Features are great, ran fine for 3 weaks but afterwards It has gone slow,every time the circle revolves and takes 10 seconds.

I bought an HTC desire s in west Africa Ghana, i later realized that its was made in Taiwan. Right now I'm having problems with, the applications. Most importantly I can't make some calls with numbers which start with a * and end with #, why? These signs are what we use frequently in loading credit/airtime in Ghana. Please held me, I love htc phones but with this i think i'm losing my interest gradually.

I also bought a NEW desire S here in Iran and it not refurbished. Everything is ok and i have upgraded it to ICS and its working like a charm. This is my 3rd Desire S( i had sold the other 2). But I am always attracted to this phone because of its unibody aluminum design and good hardware. I just wish it could have supported twin Sims. By the way the battery life is above average for a touch screen and it has improved greatly by the ICS upgrade.
