---About BackUp Before Install---

>>Do not recommend backup apps because it will change into a completely different version, the better once you have installed Android ICS, download it from the market. .
>>Just do a backup of your contacts (if you do not want to lose and re-enter manually), if you sync your contacts with your gmail or google account is not required to do backup because google is responsible for restoring your contacts list.
>> Make a complete backup of your current rom, this is for if after the installation of Android ICS, you decide to return you to your previous version, restore the backup you just the way you left your previous rom. To make the backup, with the phone on, press the POWER button until appears to turn off menu, select REBOOT and then select RECOVERY, the phone will reboot into Recovery Menu (remember to use this menu is Volume Up = Up, Volume down = down Call Button = Select or Enter, Power Button = Back), select "backup and restore" and then "backup" and wait to the backup is completed, once completed, select "reboot system now" to restart the phone. (the backup is saved in sdcard in a folder called "clockwork", don't delete this folder if you decide someday return you to your previous version)


---Install Android ICS---

Hello joeymk,
I've tried. It works, but there's a problem with some virtual sim (in Italy they are called "virtual sim" like postemobile, erg, coop, ecc.). The problem is a kind of continuos reboot. With other sim it seems to work... :-)
Good luck!

is this working did someone tryed this?

I tried it, everything works(except cam and tethering) but few options like dock and icons.. YouTube not working, search contacts(typing the name) in phone-book is not showing accurate results... But your job is appreciative!

Install works well, with three big problems that I found -

1) Phone echo. Anyone phones you, they hear their own voice.

2) Default setting for phone calls appears to be 'mute', meaning a few button presses more than normal to do something as basic as answer a call.

3) GPS wouldn't detect satellites.

It looks great, and runs at a good speed, but maybe not quite ready yet.
