Hi,
I've been trying to follow the instructions both on here and http://forum.vodafone.co.uk/ to upgrade to the NZ ICS - which, if I've understood correctly, doesn't require rooting my device (which I don't want to do until I have a bit more experience of android). I'm clearly doing something wrong - can anyone tell me what?
So, this is what I've tried...
1) Downloaded V100R001C02B936.zip file to my desktop
2) Extracted files to folder V100R001C02B936
3) It contains 2 folders - /dload & /META-INF
4) /dload contains 2 files - FULL UPDATE.APP and au_temp.cfg
5) Put SD card into PC and copy dload folder into root
6) Put SD card into G300
7) Go to Settings>Storage>Software Update
8) Select 'SD Card Update'
9) Am invited to backup - so do so - then press 'confirm'
10) Message appears saying it will take about 2 mins - 'cancel' or 'update'
11) Press 'update' - phone immediately turns itself off and does 'short reboot'
12) I'm still running Android 2.3.6

So I try...
Repeat 1) to 6) to make sure I've done it right, then try
7) Take out battery, replace and press both vol controls and start
8 ) PINK screen - leave it for 5 mins, take out battery, replace and press start...
9) Working OK but still 2.3.6

What am I missing?

I think you need to update with the "middle package" first. There are pinned threads about it. It's only a tiny file to download. That's what I did anyway. Pete

Hi Pete,
Thanks for that - only problem is I have no idea what you mean by the "middle package" - could you just expand on that? (I know there are various threads out there but when you're coming to it with so little background knowledge (as I am) it's almost impossible to sort the wheat from the chaff!)
