I'm on Tillaz AtmoicMod B888.

yeah, I've not updated as I'm unsure....so point and laugh :(

I thought it would be "retro" to stay on GB....maybe I should go to Cupcake to be ultra retro :ph34r: :( :lol:

hope people using it are enjoying it.

CM9, agree with the screen responsiveness not being as good. Also SD card transfer speeds seem slower.

SD card is a bug, not a feature, honest! :P

I'm in the same boat except I'm on stock B888. Earlier this week I was ready to install CM9 to test knowing that I could restore my Nandroid backup and get back to B888 easily. However, since then things have gotten a little more complicated with CM9, MIUI & chinese stock ICS and talk of loosing the IMEI etc.

So basically I'm waiting for things to settle down a little and maybe even wait for the UK ICS to appear.

I don't know why but I was much more 'gung ho' with my OSF. I would just throw any old rom at it to test and never had any issues at all. I'm much more cautious with the G300 and I don't really know why.

you should really update to Atomic Mod everything is working 100% and is made to look and feel like ICS, then update to UK ICS when it is released.

The only reason not to update to Chinese ICS or a ROM based on it is, if you are worried that when UK ICS comes out, you will need to downgrade before upgrading, which is risky if you do not follow the instructions 100%.

Therefore even if you are cautious i would still install Atomic Mod, there is no reason not to.

Only been on ICS for 24 hrs and i know it will get better,but atm it feels like what it is - a work in progress.The future ICS roms will improve on this 1st one and i'll know my way round ICS better in time. Everything justs feels 'not quite there yet' ,screen can seem less responsive (even unresponsive at times) ,not keen on the stock browser,voice input on google works ok but laggy ,and a few other minor niggles.Nothing serious,just rough and ready feel to it

Ok, I've taken your advice. I'm installing AtomicMod as we speak.

I have 2 G300's and I have Chinese ICS on mine and Atomic Mod on my Mrs's. The only reason her's is on Atomic is because she had that on her Skate and is used to it and also just in case we do need to downgrade before upgrading to UK ICS, don't want to brick her phone and end up with her nagging constantly as I try and fix it. Therefore I have left her's on Atomic so the upgrade process to UK ICS is clean.
