To make sure they don't escape without notice, we've gathered every possible update, hack, and other miscellaneous tomfoolery we could find during the last week and crammed them into one convenient roundup. If you find something available for your device, please give us a shout at tips at engadget dawt com and let us know. Enjoy!



Official Android updates

  • Samsung Epic 4G: Sprint's member of the original Galaxy S lineup received a minor bug fix this week to resolve an issue that'd caused users to experience force close errors with inbound calls. It also picked up a new bit of software known as the Sprint Connection Optimizer. [SprintFeed]
  • Bell Mobility: Many Bell users will appreciate a tasty new leak that provides a rough guideline for the carrier's Ice Cream Sandwich deployment to many of its handsets. Both the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note are set to receive the update this month, whereas Galaxy Tab 10.1 users will need to wait until May. June also promises to bring good fortune, as both the HTC Raider and Sensation, as well as the LG Optimus LTE are all said to receive Android 4.0 during the month. [Mobile Syrup]
  • HTC Sensation: Vodafone UK is now rolling out Ice Cream Sandwich for the Sensation in phases. Keep checking often for your delivery Sense 3.6. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in] [Vodafone UK]
Unofficial Android updates, custom ROMs and misc. hackery
  • Galaxy S II (AT&T): Own one of AT&T's original Galaxy S II's and have a burning desire for a new ROM? Good, because the phone is now receiving nightly builds for CyanogenMod 9, which features Ice Cream Sandwich in all of its custom glory. [Android Police]
  • Samsung Captivate and Vibrant: Galaxy S owners for AT&T and T-Mobile can also now join the Android 4.0 fun with the CyanogenMod team. Both the Captivate and Vibrant are now receiving nightly updates of CyanogenMod 9. [Android Police]
  • Meizu MX and M9: Meizu released its public beta ROMs that are based on Android 4.0.3 for both the MX and M9 handsets. Unlike Meizu's previous efforts with custom skins, this one is said to be free of any customization. [Android Police]
