Good so far
Installed on unrooted stock T-Mo phone with stock ROM. Installation was painless. ICS working great so far and looks awesome! For my money, just getting the new Gmail is worth the upgrade. Will post later if I find issues.

** THANK YOU ***

So unless for some unknown reason a ROM states you need ENG HBOOT there is no need to flash it, unless you know what additional things you can get into trouble with on your phone.

4) boot into bootloader and apply the update
5) once updated, reflash the eng hboot again
6) flash the cwm 5.5.0.4 recovery in fastboot (fastboot flash recovery *****.img)

Hey there, would you see if you are having any issues with Google Play? It seems like the one that came with ICS is 3.47 and the latest one is 3.5.16. That may be the problem. Keep getting "package file is invalid." I found the Google Play APK, but I don't know how to install it without a file manager. I can put the APK on my SD card, but then what?

As long as you have a ENG bootloader or Juopunutbear bootloader you do not need to be htc unlocked. You have full security unlock since you are s-off. Flash away!

Also, to flash the hboot do the following:

2) flash the eng hboot 1.90.2005 (rename to PH85IMG.zip and flash in bootloader)

Will I need my laptop to do this, or can I do it all from my phone?

I'm completely stock.

I just wanted to say that I flashed the ICS build from the link above, I unlocked my boot loader (again), I loaded su, superuser and busybox all on my TMobile Amaze 4G. I have to say playing around with it for a couple of hours and I have to say that I am 110% impressed. My phone has all of the apps loaded from the play store and aptoide, but still the OS runs so fluid like. I will chime back in tomorrow letting you know of any faults I find. But my recommendation is to do it. WiFi works, calls work and sound well, internet seems quicker (I am using chrome beta), overall I am very satisfied.

So, CMIIW but i saw some post that says you don't have to be s-off if you got your amaze from t-mobile. is that true?
because my phone is Amaze4g from t-mobile, rooted, but s-on.

S off is only required if you want to keep s off after updating. You can flash with S on but may lose the ability to achieve s off in the future after updating (this is different from root, you can still be s on, ics and rooted by using the htc dev unlock tool). Until someone can prove otherwise this is the case.

If you do not care about s off, flash away, if you do, then s off first, load eng bootloader and then flash.
