I have never seen that feature on stock ICS, cm9 has it but sure you cannot on stock, correct me if I am wrong anyone ?

Just noticed an intel feature though...can disable hyperthreading to improve battery life, and also set min cpu speed

omg.. thanks for pointing this feature :D.... almost seemed hidden ... what a gem of an update it is :D

Ahhh what a tease, thought I had root then, using razr root exploit, it pushed superuser apk so I thought it worked, but there no root :angry2:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1586570

Anything worth a try I guess ;)

In terminal emulator or an adb shell type

ls system/xbin/su

And post the result.

You can't. It's a CyanogenMod feature.

Editing toggles is something that needs to be changed in framework and without a custom recovery and root I'm afraid that's not going to happen.

Result being no such file or directory, as there is no su binary. If only they was that kind :( :lol:

And although the root exploit installed superuser, it was to user app, no different from downloading from market lol. I tested several root apps so it was clear I simply had superuser installed. Starting to think they have sealed up ICS just like they did gingerbread :(

You can go into the Orange shop and they can update it for you, would that route be possible? Just worried about voiding the phone, but want ICS badly and I can see Orange doing ota only update.

As I've already posted elsewhere: It won't kill your warranty. Only unauthorised software installation (Custom ROMs) will do this because it involves unlocking the bootloader which always voids warranty (even if I don't agree with it).

Of course it's up to you at the end at the day but I fully expect the Orange ROM to be full of crap nobody needs or wants and without ROOT you won't ever be able to remove it all.

Repeat of my post in the hacking topic... Has anyone tried this for root??

http://www.modaco.co...for-ics-jb-r715

Doesn't work for one very obvious reason. None of that is compiled for x86.

Hi there. This is my first post to this forum.

I have had a great deal of success upgrading my now retired Orange San Francisco with the help of this site, now after onoly a few hours of ownership I'm wanting ICS on my new San Diego.

Can you just claify that it is possible to do an SD card update to ICS using the XOLO Update from the Orange GB that my phone came with?

Cheers

If you install the ICS update from SD card does it use up any data during install? I've left my wifi but I've already downloaded the update to my phone.

You can switch off your data if the download is complete, not that it will use any data during update process.

Cool.....anyone else noticed you can disable system apps in ICS ? Which in effect is like having root and freezing apps.

How it is done is to go to app manager, click on apps you don't use on system and there is a disable tab at top.

So if like me you don't really use google maps or talk, they can be left as if froozen!

As well as a better UI for the camera, is it true that the picture quality is better? What about video?

I don't know about the picture quality, but macro shots have been better. earlier it never used to work for me, but now i can have macro shots :D.

The camera quality doesn't compare to that of my nokia n900 though. Best camera on a phone i've used so far.

I was just playing with camera and noticed some features are missing. Multi shot you cannot select the type, focus, exposure like on gingerbread. Also the front camera you cannot select between resolutions,as far as I can see anyway.

Although I do like the fact the video record autofocus now works without the annoying clicking noise.
