ICS available OTA from Vodafone

57 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hi there,

I just checked my "Online Upgrade" in "About Phone" and ICS is there ready to be downloaded!

I have a few questions though before I hi the download button!

Will ICS slow my G300 down??? Is the G300 powerful enough to work well with ICS?

Can I easily return my phone to the Gingerbread setup I have now if I don't like the official ICS?

I need to be able to watch Flash video on my phone. I've read that Flash 11.2 works fine with ICS. Is this true?

My phone is rooted at the moment. Will I need to re-root after OTA ICS update? Do I do it in the same way as before?

Finally, has anyone else tried the official OTA ICS Vodafone update??? What's it like???

Any help or advice for any of the above greatly received.

I really like my phone as it is and only want to do this if it will make it even better!

Cheers

Will

MY BAD! REALLY SORRY GUYS. IT WAS B892. SOZ!

ICS will make your phone faster and feel much, much smoother than GB.

IF you are able to return it might not be too easy and won't be possible until it is confirmed that the official UK ICS can be rooted and bootloader unlocked. But believe me you wont want to go back.

Flash works fine for me and I run ICS on my G300.

You will need to reroot but no one will know how untill someone in the know has treid.

How can you know it is ics based on the update number which is all you see when update is available?

Anyway, I am onto it, downloading required downgrade files now.

If you are on stock Voda B885 then the update being offered is an update to B892 (still Gingerbread) not ICS.

I'm on B892 and checking for updates says there aren't any. The OP should change the misleading title of the thread.

I think it is clear he has confused the B892 update for ics, why exactly is beyond me?

So it is settled then, I can take my finger off the big red button now lol
