able to get Android version 4.2 on this phone?

Hi There,
I was just wondering if I would be able to get JellyBean running on my HTC phone. Right now I have Ice Cream Sandwich running on it (4.0.2). Could somebody please tell me if I can do that or not and if so please tell me how I would go about doing that.
Thanks in advance!

4.2 roms are starting to pop up. just look thru the development section on xda: http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1112

most of them are still going to be missing functionality at this point.

youll need to be running a custom recovery,and would switch the rom in this manner:
-place rom and gapps(if needed) files on sd
-boot to recovery
-make a backup of current rom(important!)
-wipe data,wipe cache,wipe dalvik cache
-flash new rom
-flash gapps(if needed)
-reboot

you can use a backup app like TiBu or MyBackup to restore user apps,only. dont try and restore system data,as that will likely lead to a bad rom flash experience.

if youre not rooted and running a custom recovery,youll need to do those things first. check out this thread,and the links within, for some basic info:
